Rescue Me ID: 15-02-16-00476Baxter (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I had to surrender my dog, Baxter, because I was moving into 'senior housing' and they don't allow dogs. Baxter has been my baby for over 6 years, and it was so difficult. His vet said they would find a home for him, so that is where I surrendered him. I have a friend that does work with the Maine Lab Rescue. She fosters dogs, and when she called to ask if she could foster Baxter, explaining that it was a win-win situation. He would live with her, they would feed him, take care of him, and show if off to the public wherever they went. Tender Touch Vet turned her down flat. She even made sure they understood that Tender Touch would handle all ... (Read More)aspects of the adoption. Now, my friend went to visit Baxter and tried to adopt him. They won't tell her how much the fee would be, either $150-$350. Even when she called back to ask again, she was given the same answer. I'm so worried about his treatment there, and don't understand why they took him off their web sight. I would appreciate your help in getting Baxter out of there and into my friend home so we can get him into a loving forever home. I thought he would be treated better than this and had no idea that they wouldn't pursue a home for him. Please help me. Mary Brooks 727-331-9444 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-21-00099Talya (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Precious Talya is about a year old, and weighs 25lbs. She will not get any bigger, and is a wonderful size - not too tiny and delicate, but not too big at all! She loves to run and play with her big dog foster siblings, but also loves to snuggle under her foster mom's blanket. Talya was rescued from a high kill shelter in Georgia, when her time was up, they were out of space, and she was set to be euthanized. We are so grateful that we learned about her, and saved her, as she is 25lbs of pure love, joy and zest for life! Talya is crate trained and doing well on her housetraining. She would love a home with at least one other dog to play ... (Read More)with, and where she does not have to be alone too much, since she really adores spending time with her people. If you think that might be you, please consider sending an email to Talya so deserves a home of her own for the holidays. Thank you!! (Less)

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.

    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas were the oldest breed on the North American continent. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
