Rescue Me ID: 14-10-24-00364Mr. Kiki, with video (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

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

    Kiki is an adorable 1 year old chihuahua who is currently in foster care. Kiki is sweet,cuddly, and very loving once he gets to know you. He loves to play fetch, and can be quite the clown. He doesn't bark very much for a Chihuahua. He is currently living with two dobermans, and gets along quite well with them. Kiki is housebroken and crate trained. Kiki is sociable with strangers provided that they approach him respectfully. He loves to burrow in blankets, and curl up in a lap. He walks well on a leash, and enjoys taking walks. Kiki is very responsive to verbal correction, and will respond to being told no. Kiki does not like ... (Read More)touching that he perceives as invasive, and can get grumpy about it. This sweet boy does not appreciate rough-housing. He may need to be muzzled for certain vet trips, and he will need to be in an adult only home as children may not understand how to approach him. Kiki's foster family has gained his trust, and he is much more relaxed about all kinds of handling now. While he gets along we'll with most dogs, he would do best with either another small dog, or a laid back large one (or as the only dog). Kiki is a sweet, smart, sensitive dog who will make a wonderful addition to the right home. Take a look at KIKI's video to see much more of him.

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jack is a very friendly boy who loves people young and old, but he hasn't been around very little ones. He loves greeting all dogs big and little and he even likes cats. He would do best in a place with a big fenced in yard to run around and he would love to have a playmate to burn off all his energy. He also enjoys curling up on the couch with his family. He is house trained and crate trained. We are working on basic commands with Jack.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Dude! Dude is a 2 year old Chihuahua mix. He weighs about 10 lbs. Dude will need a family who will understand that he may need some time to warm up to new people and go slowly with handling him. He loves people and will follow his family as well as newcomers around with a happy tail. He does not like to be picked up by people that he doesn't know and will run away if they try but he will beg his foster mom for attention and to be picked up. Don't tell anyone, but his foster mom says that he might just be her favorite! He is just so sweet and has the best personality. His eyes are soulful and he has a lot of love to give. He is ... (Read More)content to sit on the couch for most of the day or to lie out in the yard catching some sun. It appears that Dude has never worn a collar, harness, or leash. For that reason he will have to learn what these things are! He will require a home with a fenced yard until he can learn to walk on a leash. In the meantime he is enjoying going for walks and park trips in his foster mom's backpack. Dude is house trained and loves treats. He is not crate trained but he is fine in the home left unattended. He never barks in the house. Dude gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home and can be playful if another dog initiates play. There is something about Dude. His personality is difficult to capture in text. You just have to come meet him to see! He has not been cat tested but we do not anticipate any issues with cats. If you are interested in finding out more about Dude, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Dude is being fostered in Holyoke and the adoption fee is $375.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for a dog that the whole family agrees on? Meet Leo, a 10 pound, 1 year old Chihuahua Min Pin Mix. When he's not snuggling in your lap, he's sleeping or sitting on your foot. His hobbies are attending children's sporting events, wrestling with the kids, wagging his tail, giving kisses and taking naps in your lap. This guy is thriving in his foster home that includes three young boys, two dogs, and chickens. In less than two weeks this little guy was transformed from a timid little boy to a well adjusted companion for the entire family. So here i what you can expect .... Someone who considers a children's soccer game an ... (Read More)adventure .... Someone who prefers to participate in family fun that is capable of running or hiking by day. And by night, forget the designer dog bed, this guy is spending his nights next to you or the kids. All Leo needs is a lap and a pillow to share. Leo does well when he is around other dogs, but he seems to prefer people.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-06-00594Hank (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, I am Hank. I am a really cute, 12 lb, 2 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix. My coat is mainly white with tan spots and ears. I am very friendly, just give me a few minutes and don't pounce on me. I like to get to know people before we get into the touchy feely stuff. Once I have had a moment to sniff you and decide that you mean me no harm, then we can be friends. I am very energetic and just love to play but I am really hard on those plush toys. I will rip them to shreds within minutes. I am good with other dogs and have been okay with the resident cats. Walking on my leash is something I do really well. I don't pull and I ... (Read More)have a very cute little prance if I do say so myself. My perfect home would be one with people who are home during the day as I really don't like to go into my crate. I would love a big backyard that I could play in and maybe another little dog as a pal. I bark when I meet someone new. My mom taught me to be careful with strangers. I have had a few accidents since I came to this foster home. I need some reminders as to where I am supposed to do my business and it can take me a long time outside to find the perfect spot. You need to be patient. Good things come to those who can wait. I am up to date on all my shots, neutered, negative for heartworm and Lyme disease and microchipped.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi I'm Ghost. I'm 8 pounds and 8 months old. My foster mom says I'm the cutest little guy you'll ever meet. I love to run around and play and go on walks, but most of all I like to cuddle. I'd really like to sleep in your bed at night (my foster mom always says no, but I still jump up there at bedtime, one day she'll give in). I like to growl at new people, to show that I'm big and tough and you can't mess with me, but after about a day I'll be cuddling up on your lap and giving you kisses. I love giving kisses. I'm good with dogs and cats. My best friend is a cat named Liam, I love getting him to chase me around the couch, although ... (Read More)sometimes he tries to hit me, I don't mind though. My foster mom says that I'm part cat, I think she's joking but who knows, after all I am around the same size as one. My favorite toys are acorns and leaves, so I can't wait for fall to come so I can play in piles of leaves all day. Maybe we can play in the leaves together. If you are interested in finding out more about Ghost please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser: http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Ghost is being fostered in Bellingham and the adoption fee is $400.

    Skippy is a sweet, calm, eight year old mixed breed who is great with other dogs. He loves shredding squeaky toys and playing tug, and taps you with his paw when he wants attention.

He can't exercise too much, but otherwise the murmur isn't bothering him, and he doesn't need any medication now. He might in the future, and because of this, we've reduced his adoption fee.

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

lnteresting Chihuahua Trivia Low-Cost Massachusetts Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
