Rescue Me ID: 16-05-19-00319Gypsy (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Gypsy, She's a 5 year old, medium length hair beautiful 5lb Chihuahua. Purebred, but without papers. She's super sweet and loves to cuddle! She's also very smart and listens well to basic commands, such as sit, lay down, stop begging, go lay down, spin, and shake. She's potty trained to go on wee pads which are placed on the bathroom floor. She loves nothing more than to cuddle all day long. Her temperament is happy and playful with a very sweet side. She has a tendency to bond with people quickly and guards people and toys from other animals so it would be best to place her in a home as an only pet. She is submissive around people ... (Read More)with no aggression towards humans. She might bark at a stranger, but with a quick pet or treat warms up quickly and loves attention from everyone. An ideal home would be either a family with older children, as small children might play too rough and she is so small. She'd be great with someone retired looking for companionship. Gypsy was crated as a puppy, so she likes her cage and does well in it, she will even go in her cage if you ask her too without any fuss. After proper potty habits were established at a young age she's been allowed free roam of the house while her people were away with no problems. Since a new home might be unfamiliar and confusing, it is important that good habits become established early to avoid any miscommunication. She learns quickly with positive reinforcement. Ideally her new home would have a fenced in yard if planning on letting her out without a leash without any small spaces for her to squeeze through. Preferably with someone who has experience with toy breeds. If you think Gypsy might be a good match for you or your family, please contact me with details about your situation and what you are looking for in a furry companion. Thank you! (Less)

    This sweet little Chihuahua is Elsa. Just look at those adorable ears! Elsa is a very sweet girl that even does cute tricks for treats!

    Luke was a severely neglected Chihuahua when surrendered to Al-Van at age 15 a few months ago and recently transferred to BestPals in April 2016. Now that he has gained some more weight Luke is active, friendly, and outgoing. He is friendly with other dogs and crate-trained. He currently eats small bites senior food (about %BD cup) twice daily mixed with wet food to make it softer because of his lack of teeth. Good with cats and enjoys being held. Vaccinations, heartworm testing and microchip being done after blood work testing. Evaluating for neutering also. Do you have room for this little guy?

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Fynn is a fun little guy with lots of energy. He's not really Boston Terrier or Chihuahua, but I had to call him something :) It would be interesting to see DNA results on him. He is house trained, gets along with cats, dogs, and kids. He will greatly benefit from a fenced in yard to run in and another dog to play with. We are fostering him after a failed adoption from the local shelter. He needed some time to decompress after a rough past, but has made leaps and bounds and just needs some love and training to become the dog he was meant to be!

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-14-00495Chewy & Brownie (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My parents who live in Livonia have 2 mother/daughter chihuahuas that need to be relocated to a furever home. While they do love the chihuahuas, they are not capable of caring for the chihuahuas to give them a healthy nor fulfilling life. The two chihuahuas are a bonded unbreakable pair as one is the mother named Chewy, and a daughter named Brownie. Chewy is a 9-year-old 8-lb pure bred chihuahua, tri-colored black/white/brown. Brownie is a 8-year-old 15-lb chihuahua mix with the same coloring as its mother. They are very sweet and cuddly. From my observation, the chihuahuas need to be rehabilitated before they can be considered adoptable. ... (Read More)They have been living indoors with each other and don't have a lot of outside interactions with strangers or other dogs. They bark and become very defensive when anyone new comes into the house. Both dogs immediately bark at any stranger/dog on walks as well. Also, when they are at home alone during the day, they intermittently bark at any noise they hear near the house. Clearly, they need someone who can give them a lot of attention and can train them to trust humans and not be so anxious all the time. They might nip at aggressive strangers, but no real damage has ever been done. While they will calm down after the new person is around, it's not quiet for some time. With any new dog, I am not sure when they ever put their guard down. I believe they need lots of socialization and comfort. They know how to use the bathroom outside and on the pee pad indoors, but I wouldn't trust they always go on the pee pad indoors. Brownie will definitely poop outside (if walked), but Chewy seems to only defecate indoors. I think if they had a structured schedule for walks/potty breaks, that they can learn to go outside. On the bright side, they love warm and cuddly places like inside blankets or on couches. They will never want to leave your side or off your lap! They are very sweet to each other and travel as a pack. Brownie has a very submissive personality as once she is familiar with you, she'll just flip over to her belly for some rubs. But, Chewy takes a lot of time for her to get comfortable with you. They are in need of some real love and routine schedules. My parents are at work 12+ hours a day at least 6 days a week. Also, now they are getting old and are just not able to give these chihuahuas the care they extremely need. We can't bear to give them an animal shelter, so we are desperately looking for a rescue who can rehabilitate them (with appropriate fosters) and then find them their furever home and be truly happy. If we had any preference, we are looking for an experienced dog owner who doesn't have other dogs/cats. They must be home a lot, preferably someone who is retired or works from home because they really crave human interaction with their human. They are good for someone who loves cuddle parties and leisure walks outside. Since they are small, they do not require runs outside but do love walks outside. We would prefer someone with a backyard, so they can potty and get fresh air. We need someone who wants to have adorable fur babies to love and cherish furever and ever. They will certainly love you back and become your shadow (because they will follow you around). They are up to date on their medical needs/records, they have been going to Pets Smart banfield and are updated on all of their shots. We can include all of their collars, leashes, clothing items, and bowls (basically all of their belongings). Please advise what appropriate information we need regarding how to begin the steps to finding them the rehabilitation and home they need. We appreciate any information or reference. Thank you.

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