Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Hi I'm Tiny! I am a 4 year old Whippet and Chihuahua mix who weighs about 6 lbs. I am TINY! Can you believe I have even put on some weight since coming into the shelter? They tell me that I need to put on a few more pounds, but I love treats so that shouldn't be a problem. I need a slow introduction to strangers, as I will bark and carry on when we first meet. I am just afraid and once I feel comfortable I will jump on your lap and look for attention.Although I just love the 2 dogs in my foster home, there are some dogs that I don't like. We would have to meet to be sure. I am a great combination of spunky and snuggly and I am enjoying ... (Read More)being picked up and cuddled by my foster mom. I am housebroken if kept on a schedule and sleep all through the night in my crate with my cozy blanket without making a peep. I have been nervous around some new men, I am so small that they can be scary! I am a sweetheart and would love to go to training classes and learn that these people are always bringing me treats! If you are interested in finding out more about Tiny, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Tiny is being fostered in Holyoke and the adoption fee is $350.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Fiona is a great dog. She is very loving and loves to cuddle. Fiona prefers older kids/teenagers to adults who are willing to take her out often and have the time to spend with her. She does get a bit excited when she hears someone at the door or hears a big truck by the house and barks, but will calm down. I am 100% Fiona has chihauhua in her but 90% she has the jack russell terrier. I do know she has some sort of terrier in her making her a bit high strung. She is not great with other dogs or cats. But does great on going on walks alone and getting outside. Fiona is not to crazy of small kids. She tends to stay away and bark. I have a one ... (Read More)year old daughter who takes up most of my time, given why I am on here. I want to give Fiona a better home who has more time to spend on Fiona and give her more attention that I can give her. (Less)

    Wally is a long haired chihuahua who only needs lots of attentiion & love. He was my sons dog but my passed away last year. I love Wally but am not a real dog person.

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

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

    Meet Henry! Henry is a Chihuahua weighing in at 10lbs, who is 10 years young. In the short time that Henry has been with Broken Tail Rescue, he has won the hearts of many volunteers, with his sweet and gentle demeanor. All that Henry really wants are people to call his own and a warm bed or lap to snuggle on. He is a calm, friendly guy who bonds quickly, and whole heartedly loves anyone who gives him some attention. Don't let his age fool you though, Henry is full of life! He can keep up on long walks, trips to the park, and other activities that younger dogs enjoy. Henry is playful with small dogs, but a bit intimidated by large dogs. He ... (Read More)lives with a medium sized dog just fine in his foster home, so it's expected that he could live with a large dog, it just might take some time for him to warm up. A very busy home with young kids is probably not the best match for Henry, but older kids who are respectful and understand that a dog of Henry's size is not a toy should be just fine! Henry is a quiet guy, so he would be ideal for apartment living. He adjusted to the sights and sounds of city living quickly, so we expect that he could live just about anywhere. He loves to tag along for errands, rides well in the car, and walks nicely on a leash. Henry has no problem being handled, which is great because he looks pretty darn cute in dog clothes! He is housetrained, and is fine taking bathroom trips in the morning, after a work day, and before bed. Click on Henry's video to see him in action on the first warm day this Spring! Please consider adopting Henry and giving him the loving home that he so deserves! More photos and videos of Henry can be seen (a href='https://www.facebook.com/EinsteinForAdoption/' target='new')here(/a). If you are interested in finding out more about Henry, please fill out an (a href='http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/' target='new')application(/a). Henry is being fostered in Boston and his adoption fee is $200.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi my name is Guinness and I am loving life right now! I am a Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher mix, am about 1 year old and weigh about 8 lbs. My daily schedule consists of playing, then a long nap, with some more playing, and an even longer nap. My favorite place to be is on the back of the couch on top of a blanket. I was so nervous when I came to my foster home but now I run around the house like I have been here for years! I am always following my foster mom around hoping that she will chase me and I get so excited when she does! There is a video of my playing that you should watch. I constantly play bow and prance around, my legs ... (Read More)are really long for my body so I look hilarious! I love treats and food. I will try anything and so far I am a big fan of blueberries and bananas, who knew? I know how to sit for a treat and have a lot of potential to learn more tricks. I love to see what my foster mom is cooking so I stand behind her in the kitchen on my hind legs so that I can see the counter tops. I can also jump really high if I get really curious! Maybe you could enroll me in agility classes? I would put those big dogs to shame with my skills! I sleep in a dog bed in my foster mom's room at night, although I am able to jump on the bed I usually do not. When it is really cold I do like to sleep under the covers in the big bed though, she doesn't mind, she said I keep her warm too. I am doing really well with house training and crate training. I am quiet in my crate when the people have to leave the house and usually go potty right when I go outside. It is very cold out though, so sometimes I just want to come right back inside. I like to go for walks but sometimes the leash scares me before it gets put on me. Once it is on I will proudly walk all around the neighborhood. I am great with other dogs and I think I would be ok with cats, I don't even play with toys! I take a little bit of time to warm up to new people but after a few minutes I will probably be jumping on your leg begging for attention. Would you like to meet me? If you are interested in finding out more about Guinness, please fill out an application on our website by copying and pasting the following link into your browser. http://www.brokentailrescue.org/adoption-application/ Guinness is being fostered in Holyoke.

Rescue Me ID: 13-12-12-00025Buckles (Bucky) (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buckles is 6 year old Chihuahua whose elderly owner has been moved to a nursing home. Buckles has a lot of energy, as is typical of the breed, and quickly adapts to a day-to-day routine, especially if it involves going for daily walks! He is a cute boy, although a bit overweight (18lbs) at the time, but a regular walking schedule will take care of that. Buckles is currently being cared for by family members, but the environment is not the best for Buckles, as there are young children in the home and time doesn't allow for the walks and one-on-one attention Buckles needs. Because he has high energy and is craving human attention, his ... (Read More)rambunctiousness causes him to knock down the small children in this home. We do, however, feel he would do very well in a home with dog-savvy children over the age of 12. Buckles enjoys playing with squeaky toys and small stuffed animals. When Buckles lived with his elderly Mom and she was unable to let him outside for regular potty breaks, he was 'pee-pad' trained inside the home. However, with consistent training and exercise, we believe he will adapt well to being fully house trained, if that is desired in his new home. Buckles has been a devoted companion to his elderly human, and now, we seek a home for him where he can thrive and enjoy his adult and senior years, too. (Less)

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.

    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. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
