Rescue Me ID: 14-08-08-00530RICKY (male)

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, Vaccinations Current 

    RICKY is an intuitive, healing dog. He had been thrown out of a car and came to us with a broken leg and abrasions. Despite his early shortcomings, he has a terrific disposition - he is kind and considerate with dogs, cats and humans. He has helped other fosters with various issues - one had a wounded ear, one was deaf, another a wounded leg, etc - he assists them in whatever way he can. We just love this little guy! He is a tall chihuahua, probably some greyhound - he's the size of a cat - a Greyhuahua. From the moment he wakes up, cuddled in your arms under the covers - until he drifts off to dreamland again at night - he is happy and ... (Read More)playful and good-natured. He's wonderful with the cats, makes friends with large/small/old/young dogs. He can run super fast in the yard. He is very socially smart. He is 1 yr old, vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.

    Meet Andy! Andy does great with cats and dogs - his former owner was elderly - and he's just looking for a nice lap to curl up in and a nice little walk around the neighborhood. He's about 8 years old so none of that puppy chewing crazy guy business- just a sweetie looking for a nice home to spend the rest of his life. He is an easy keeper and would make an excellent companion. He would be great for a quiet home. He is also a good little watchdog, he will let you know when someone is around. This is a great little guy! Why oh why hasn't anyone snatched him up is a mystery. To Meet ANDY, contact: Trish 505.907.3791 or email at ... (Read More)pacatrish@yahoo.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-05-00603PeeWee (male)

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: 14-08-05-00600Cotton (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

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.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-05-00597Lala (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

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

    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.

Chihuahua   

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    This girl is precious and adorable! She looks to be full bred, she is brown and tan. She is very loving, smart and playful. She loves to cuddle. She loves to snuggle with a blanket covering her. She likes sitting in my lap and let's me hold her like a baby. She had a bath in the bathtub and she was fine. She walks well on a leash but is not completely housebroken. She is a little leary of men at first but it takes her time to warm up to them. She is a good watch dog too. She is a happy girl and wags her tail a lot. She loves to play and she loves a lot of attention.

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.

    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas were the oldest breed on the North American continent.
