Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi I am LaLa! I'm around 5 or 6 years old. I have been bounced around quite a bit in my short life. I was rescued out of a yard where my owners abandoned me and my other doggie buddies when the humans left. I don't know if I can even call them my owners they just left us to starve. I went to a temporary home with a very nice lady but there were many dogs like myself that had been abandoned and needed homes. She would let me sit in her lap, though, even if she didn't have much time for me. I enjoyed that very much. But then she found PACA to take me and I went in another foster home with a couple of other dogs. I really didn't like ... (Read More)sharing the human lap there with the other dogs as I finally had someone that would pay attention to me. One of the other dogs is very sickly and old and it was decided that I would move to another foster home. There are doggies in this home and they kind of put me in my place. I do like the lap of the man and don't want to share it with anybody. They would like to keep me but if they do then they cannot foster anymore dogs and this is what they want to do. So I am still looking for that forever home. Please consider me for yours. I would really like to have a lap to lay on all to myself and not share it with any other dogs. I am alright with kitties, though, they seem to do their own thing and I like watching them but leave them alone and they leave me alone. So as you can gather I am a lap dog and would make an excellent companion for someone in a quiet home. And I would really, really like to find my forever home, please!

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-06-00010Cotton (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Cotton is a little cutiepie. He is chihuahua mixed with what we are not too sure. I don't think he is too sure either as one ear wants to be a chihuahua and the other wants to be whatever he is mixed with. It is quite endearing, 1 ear up and 1 ear down. We think that he may be around 2 years old. He is good with dogs and enjoys playing with them. He and his buddy PeeWee, who is also looking for a home and is in the same foster home, play and hang out together and really enjoy each other. They would like to go to a home together but if not possible, Cotton would be ok in a home with another dog or dogs, or by himself as he really likes ... (Read More)to be a lapdog. He is a little bit shy at first but does warm up to you. He is good with kids but it takes a little time for him to warm up to them, as he is a little timid, but once he has he is very playful and excellent with them. He has possibly been abused so needs a little patience, he gets scared and cowers if voices are raised. He sleeps in his crate at night along with PeeWee. He is housebroken and does not mark. He likes attention and to have a warm lap to lay on. He is very well behaved and listens very well. His foster mommie says he is the best little guy and a joy to have around.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    PeeWee is small, about a year old and very, very playful. He is very attached to his friend Cotton, who lives with him in his foster home. Cotton is also looking for a home. PeeWee needs another young playmate if Cotton and he cannot be adopted together. We prefer that they go together but realize that this may not be possible. PeeWee is very attentive but was very cautious when he first came to his foster home, it took him a couple of days to come round. He loves to play and chew on raw hides. He goes into his crate with Cotton at night. He is house broken but does best when he has access to outdoors and can go out every so often. ... (Read More)He will follow the other dogs out easily. He is good with kids when he becomes acquainted with them-he is a bit timid at first-but once he gets to know them he is very playful and is excellent with them. He also loves to sit on laps and cuddle. He is very well behaved and listens well. His foster mommie says he is a wonderful little guy and is a joy to have around.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-22-00120Cheech (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Little Cheech is a very sweet, loving and happy boy but came from very bad circumstances. The people who surrendered Cheech kept him in a cage in the backyard till he was 6 mos old. He was very thin when we got him, and terrified of all people and things. But because Cheech has such a good personality, and was young enough, he was better able to adjust to new surroundings and new people and ideas. Cheech has bloomed since coming to the shelter. I marked him as SPECIAL NEEDS because Cheech has a problem with meeting new people for the first time. He may always be a little afraid of new or strange people at first, but afterward, he ... (Read More)becomes more friendly. Another behavior Cheech has is he crouches down when someone reaches to pick him up - - an old fearful behavior from his younger days when he was bullied and yelled at. That crouching behavior may go away as he gets older and learns to trust new people. But because of little Cheech's rough start, his new person or family will have to be very patient and very gentle with him to bring out his trust. Cheech's new family will always need to use positive reinforcement, not punishment as he will revert back to his old fears from when he was a puppy. Once he gets over his initial shyness, he is a fun dog to have around and he is also a very loving and gentle dog. Cheech should not go to a noisy, very active home with rambunctious children. He is not used to that kind of environment and needs to be placed in a quieter home, and if there are children, they must be gentle or Cheech may have difficulty adjusting. Also Cheech has sensitive skin so during spring and fall, he may need to take a half of a Benadryl a.m. and p.m. to control his allergies. He may grow out of his allergies but grass and green weeds seem to aggravate them so it is preferable he spends less time outdoors if you have grass in your yard. (Benedryl is very cheap: $4 per box of 100 at Walmart.) Cheech loves other dogs and wants so badly to love people. He was born around March 2014, is about 10 inches tall at the shoulder and is a slim boy weighing about 10 pounds. Cheech is neutered and vaccinated. He loves walking on a leash now, loves to go for car rides, loves being cuddled. Cheech is crate-trained and housebroken and he uses a dog door. Please contact the animal control officer at 575-537-3220 M-F, 8-4:30 pm, or email hurleyanimalshelter@gmail.com to see little Cheech. His adoption fee is $40.00. (Less)

    *****PENDING ADOPTION****** Rosie came in with her son Deigo from the shelter. She had been breed on every heat cycle and was also pregnant when she came in. She had her pups who didn't survive via c-section and that was traumatic for her as well. She is extremly shy but will warm up if allowed too. She loves kids and will attach herself quickly to them but has some trust issues with adults.

    Deigo came in from the shelter. He takes time to warm up but does love kids and is tolerant of other dogs and animals once introduced properly. Not taken care of or abused before he hit the animal shelter is unknown. All we know is that he is extremely skittish at first. Deigo still needs to be potty trained as he is still a pup and doesn't know better. He doesn't take too long to warm up to you. He is a sweetheart who could go just about anywhere. Adoption fee is $75 because he is up to date on shots and neutered. Please give this guy a chance all he wants is to be loved and in a good home.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in New Mexico
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in New Mexico 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 New Mexico Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas were the oldest breed on the North American continent. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
