Rescue Me ID: 18-05-13-00194SNOW-1 (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    SNOW-1 was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. SNOW-1 is spayed, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 18 March 2017 and weighs around 17.30 pounds. She has been listed as a Chihuahua/Fox Terrier Mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. SNOW-1 had been adopted twice from the shelter and had been returned for what the shelter classes as 'unreasonable expectations'. This generally when the dog ... (Read More)is not the perfect dog, it might be a little fearful at first, not knowing what is happening, it might not and most likely isn't house-trained, genearlly things that a normal dog-lover would expect and plan to work through. This is just one of the many reasons why kill shelters in Texas are so full all the time. As you would expect with all that this sweet girl has been through the 4 day transport trip and arriving at the rescue was also stressful for her. She has never showed any signs of aggression, but clearly she needed to be left alone for a few days with the small dogs where she lives to decompress and take in the latest traumatic event in this young girls life. After a few days, SNOW-1 started to come up and want some affection, she would follow me outside and be happy to get treats. She has started to enjoy being here and playing with her friends, or relaxing in the sun, feeling safe and loved.I would expect when she goes to her new family that she will be shy, fearful and wonder why she is being moved from where she feels safe again, but with some special love, patience and understanding her precious, sweet and loving personality will shine through and she will learn to be happy and live the life she deserves. We do not have cats or livestock at the rescue, so we cannot comment on how she would respond or act with or around them. A volunteer brought her young granddaughter over and she was great with her, initially she was a little bit shy, but soon warmed up and very loving and wanting to get lots of attention. SNOW-1 does use the dog door to go out to do her business. I do not know if she would let you know she needs to go out since she has 24/7 access to the outside, so it is important to note she will most likely need some training. She is going to need a family that is used to small dogs. Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so that he doesn't get too much of a handful. A somewhat active family who can give him the lifestyle that she needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting her explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit.

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-13-00170JACK-3 (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    JACK-3 was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. JACK-3 is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 20 March 2016 and weighs around 14.00 pounds. He has been listed as a chihuahua/terrier mix. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, so it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely. When JACK-3 first arrived at the rescue he was very fearful and wouldn't let anyone go near him, he would run off, after a few days he would still run, but it was ... (Read More)more of a playful - come on and chase me - type play, but he wouldn't let me get close. Then one day when I went over to feed, clean and spend time he did that little doggy-smile, where they pull their lips back, his whole body was wagging and he was jumping up on my legs and letting me scratch his ears and rub his belly. Since then he has been a different dog to when he got here. He had been scheduled to be killed at the shelter as they had no space and he was fearful. It just shows with some time and being allowed to decompress, they can make a complete turn around. JACK-3 is a shy, sweet, loving affectionate boy. He is not a needy dog and can entertain himself as much as he loves to be up on your knee getting and giving lots of love and kisses. He does take a little time to gain some trust but is soon wanting some belly rubs and ear scratches. is great with other dogs of all ages and sizes and has no problem letting the big dogs know that he is no push-over. He loves to run and chase and be chased and enjoys playing with toys also. He is a very good all round small dog. We do not have cats or livestock at the rescue, so we cannot comment on how he would respond or act with or around them. A volunteer brought her young granddaughter over and he was great with her, very loving and wanting to get lots of attention. JACK-3 does use the dog door to go out to do his business or enjoy the fresh air in his run. I do not know if he would let you know he needs to go out since he has 24/7 access to the outside, but he is smart and do not think it would take long to learn. He is going to need a family that is used to small dogs. Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so that he doesn't get too much of a handful.

Rescue Me ID: 18-02-23-00138BARRY - $300 (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    BARRY was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas, where dogs generally have just 3 days to be saved before they are killed for space. BARRY is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, de-wormed, heartworm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 19 August 2013 and at the time of rescue in February 2018 weighed around 8.6 pounds. Barry has been listed as a Chihuahua mix, however, we are not able to say for sure what breed he is, it is up to you to look at his pictures and decide what you think he looks like. Barry is a sweet, loving affection little man. He lives in the small dog area with 8 other dogs and he gets on ... (Read More)great with them all. There are pee pads down that they all use, but will go outside when it is a nice day and the door can be left open for a while for them to go and play outside and explore. He gets on great with other dogs of all sizes and ages and has never shown any sign of aggression at all. We do not have cats or livestock at the rescue so cannot comment on how he would behave near or around them. Barry although small is still an active boy and would love an active family, he would benefit from some training as do all rescue does and we recommend that the family work with him on basic obedience so that personality, boundaries and body language can be learned from each other. He loves to snuggle and will cuddle up on your lap enjoying the love and he is happy going on adventures or just hanging out. As long as he is with you he is happy. %BD'%BD%BDWe do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks. BARRY is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-23-00125TRIXIE (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Trixie was saved from one of the high kill shelters we work with in Texas. She is spayed, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm disease tested; Negative and micro-chipped. She has an estimated date of birth of 11 December 2013 and she weighs around 7 pounds. Trixie is listed listed as a Chihuahua. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what breed you think she is. Trixie was taken to the shelter with Woody who is around a month old. We have no idea what relationship they are, but they are comfortable with each other and although play with the other dogs, do like to hang out and snuggle together. Trixie ... (Read More)when she first arrived at the rescue was very fearful and shy. She would bury herself under the blankets and creep around the house when the other dogs were sleeping. After a few days she started to decompress and realize that she is in a safe, loving place and her confidence started to grow. She became a lot more playful with her little buddy Woody and even some of the other smaller dogs. She would jump up on the chair and curl up on my lap or on my shoulder if I was busy working. She became increasingly affectionate. At night she would burrow down under the blankets on the bed and curl up nice and warm, but she has to be touching me. If I moved her to the side, she would get up and snuggle up close again. Trixie is an adorable, loving girl who is now comfortable being around at least 25 dogs of all ages and sizes from 4 pounds up to 120 pounds. She eats, plays and sleeps amongst them. She will enjoys humans company and would make a great lap dog and family addition. Trixie is not house trained as I know, I have x-large dog doors in the house that are too big for her to push through and so she does go to the puppy pee pads I have down for them pups. Although a small dog who will enjoy being carried around, it is important that her family understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. She still will need to go on walks and get the socialization and exercise all dogs need.

Rescue Me ID: 17-12-14-00427TRITON (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Triton was saved from one of the shelters we work with in Texas. He is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm tested negative and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 9 June 2016 and has an estimated weight of 13.80 pounds. He has been listed as a Chihuahua mix. We have no way of knowing the true breed, it is up to you to decide what you think his breed/s is. He arrived at the rescue in Sebec on 16th December 2017. When Triton first arrived at the rescue he was extremely shy and scared, he would stay curled up in the corner and sit and watch. He would freeze if I went up to go and stroke him, but was never ... (Read More)aggressive. After a few days, he started to relax a lot more and started to enjoy his petting sessions. After about a week he started wanting to explore and whilst still not at the point where he was ready to wrestle and play with the other dogs his curiosity was taking over his shyness. Over the following few weeks he has truly decompressed and come out of his shell. He will jump up on the coach for cuddles, he will go to one of the several toy baskets and choose a toy to play with, he will play with the other dogs and now more often than not instigate play. He will follow me to the kitchen when it is 'treat time' and hold his own amongst the hustle and bustle with the other dogs. Triton can be a bit growly when he has a toy, a hoof, a horn or a treat. He has never been aggressive but doesn't want other dogs coming near him whilst he is eating or playing with his toy. He is good playing with other dogs and toys, but this is more when he has a toy on his own. He has tried to intimidate the other dogs by going up to them and staring and having a little growl whilst they have something he wants, even with the German Shepherds, but this generally falls on deaf ears and when he knows they are not going to give up what they have to him he will go on the hunt for something else to entertain himself. Again he is not aggressive, but he does like his own space when he has something. He has never bitten or attacked any other dogs and I am able to take anything away from him at any time I please with no response. At first Triton was doing his business near the patio door, then as he started to explore he would use the pee pads I have down for a few puppies and since his confidence has grown he uses the dog door and comes and goes in and out as he pleases. I always recommend that families expect some accidents as it is a stressful transition and until dogs get settled and learn their new routine they may have a few accidents. Although Triton is a small dog he is still young and an active lifestyle would suit him. I do not know how he is on the leash and so the adopter must be prepared for some work with training him, once he has learnt to trust and happy and settled in his new life I do believe he will become someone's shadow and enjoy being social and adventurous. So a family that enjoys a somewhat active lifestyle would be beneficial. Someone who understand that he will need training and guidance and learns that humans are in charge so boundaries are set. He is going to enjoy an outdoors kind of family who can give him the lifestyle that he needs. Going on road trips, to new places, hikes and adventures and letting him explore the sights, smells and sounds the world has to offer will be to his and your benefit. He is going to need a family that understands the importance of basic and advanced training. We advise that families work on their own basic training so that boundaries and expectations can be set and personalities and body language learnt in the process, which will help form a much stronger bond. 'We do not recommend dog parks for several weeks, if not months, it is so very important for families and dogs to form a strong bond and get to know each other before exposing them to the potential dangers of dog parks. Although all GaDaH dogs are very well socialized with other dogs, lots of other dogs have not had the benefit of this socialization and do not always know how to play and act with other dogs. You also do not know the control the other families have over their dogs and you should always have a good recall for your adopted dog before going to dog parks. Triton will make a great family addition to an experienced family who understands that he might need time to adapt and he might be nervous and unsure initially but know that he has huge potential once allowed to decompress and feel safe and loved. He is fun, active and very loving and deserves a good family and home to call his own. Triton is available for adoption from Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $550. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Maine
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Maine if they match your IifestyIe. Chihuahuas are high strung, yappy, tiny dogs. Chihuahuas are loyal to the point of possessiveness and obsession with their masters. Chihuahuas are bold, high energy dogs that make wonderful companions for their owners but are suspicious of strangers. Chihuahuas are not well suited to families with children due to the dogs' defensiveness and tendency to snap when provoked. Chihuahuas need to be thoroughly socialized. Despite their small size, Chihuahuas are often aggressive with other dogs. Chihuahuas do fine living in an apartment but need plenty of daily exercise.
