Rescue Me ID: 14-07-12-00284Little Bit (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    4-5 year old chi/dach mix. Lauren better known as Little Bit is an absolute lovebug. She even gives hugs! It's hard to feel anything but happy and lucky with Little Bit around. Little Bit does have a heart murmur and takes medication twice a day. But it does not slow her down! Her medicine (a small pill) is easily mixed in with her wet food. Little Bit's favorite pastimes include burrowing under blankets, snuggling up next to her human friends, giving lots of kisses and playing with soft squeak toys. Little Bit is very easy to care for and a relaxed dog. She is quiet and almost never barks. She is housebroken and does well in an oversized ... (Read More)crate. She can be left uncrated during the day as long as she's had a potty break first. She will sleep in a crate for most of the night but will let you know when she's ready to hop under the covers with you in the early morning. Little Bit walks well on leash and is doing well with learning good recall. Her adopters will want to be careful with letting her off leash at first. She likes to explore but with practice and training, she should be able to be trusted off leash in safe situations. Little Bit gets along great with other dogs especially small dogs. Large dogs are okay but she does not like when they get too close to her face. She does not bother cats. She is incredibly friendly and happy to nicely greet every person she meets including toddlers. Little Bit knows basic commands including sit and stay and she never tries to run out the door without an invitation. She does not like loud noises like thunderstorms and the vacuum cleaner. She might hide in a corner or under the bed when she gets scared. As a dachshund mix. As a long backed dog, she needs to be picked up carefully. Any children who might pick up Little Bit will need to be taught how to safely and comfortably pick her up. Her nails grow quickly but she is patient with having them trimmed. Little Bit is a whole lot of sweet! This little girl is ready for a home where she'll be treated like a princess and in return she'll thank you with endless love and affection. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    He is a loving 2 year 3 month Chihuahua. He is loving with his family; however, he has to warm up to strangers. He follows a lot of commands. This dog belongs to my daughter and she is no longer in the household. It is breaking my heart to get rid of him, but he will be better off with someone who can spend a lot more time with him than I can.

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Brownie is a very loveable dog but she hates my husband. She hides most of the time in our very active household. I think she would be better suited in home without children and other animals. She's easy to take care of and loves to have her belly rubbed but it takes her a little while to warm up to a new person.

Ally requires daily exercise and would do best in a home that is active, has a tall fenced in yard and with someone who is also capable of walking and/or running with her on a regular ... (Read More)basis. Ally would make an excellent candidate for agility training with her impressive level of intelligence, quick wit and the many commands she has already mastered. At times, Ally can have a bit of a stubborn streak and tends to use her intellect to demand attention. She also does the same when trying to get the attention of other dogs when she wants to initiate playtime. Ally will often exhibit cat-like mannerisms and paw at the other dogs and even bow along with a little bark until her K-9 friend takes the hint to play with her. Ally tends to be cautious of newcomers until she is properly introduced. After she knows that the newcomer is approved by her foster Mom; however, she is quick to make a new friend. As a matter of fact, if she really approves of you and you are receptive of her, she will literally jump from the floor right into your open arms!! While Ally is quite spunky throughout the day, she settles right down at night and does not make a peep. She absolutely loves to sleep in the big bed with her foster Mom. Ally also seems to believe that she is a human and she should be under the covers with you! If you are looking for an active, unique, fun-loving companion to keep you busy, look no further than Ally. She is sure to make a lucky family very happy with her fun-loving ways and intelligence beyond that of the average pup!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Maryland
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Maryland 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.
