Animal ID: A219175Daisy (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult


     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. Daisy (A219175) was surrendered to the shelter by her owner because they felt they worked too much and it was unfair to Daisy. Daisy is a fear biter, but that is not very uncommon for these little breeds. Daisy can be sweet and she will more than likely be like majority Chihuahua's and cling to her person and love them dearly, but be cautious of strangers. We would not recommend Daisy into a home with smaller children. The owner stated that Daisy lived inside, was house and crate trained and that loved attention from her owner. Due to not being able to warm up to everyone quickly we are unable to place her for up for general adoption. We are ... (Read More)reaching out to rescues who understand that Daisy's behavior is not aggression, but part of her breed and being scared. Daisy weighs about 10 lbs and is heartworm negative. (Less)

We hate to get rid of him but he really needs someone that can spend more time with him. He is purebred but has no papers. He weighs 9 pounds and is currently on all shots. He would come with doggy door gates, Wellness food, food container, harness, leash, kennel and tons of toys!!!

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Hershey is really a sweet boy. He's so timid but he's extra loveable I think older kids would work better for him and he's been friendly with every dog he's been in contact with. He's kind of a loner so a home where he's the only dog would work well for him. He's a wire haired chihuahua so he needs to get trimmed every once in a while or he looks like Santa haha. Please feel free to call me with any questions.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey there, my name is Fella! I'm an eight year old Chihuahua mix. I'm a handsome little guy with brown spots and perked ears. I'm a fairly small dog, and would make the perfect pup for someone looking for a little pooch. Little lapdogs like my sister and myself aren't used to being in a big, scary shelter... and even though the workers are nice enough, it's not the same as having your very own family. I'm very scared at the shelter, and all I really feel like doing is curling up in a tight ball and hiding. But not to worry... when I'm given one-on-one time with you, I come out my shell. And I definitely perk up when you give me a rawhide ... (Read More)bone! In a safe home environment, I know that I would blossom into a wonderful, loving pup. I walk very well on a leash and like being held (it makes me feel safe.) I came into the shelter with my sister, Bella (twins have to have rhyming names, of course.) We are very attached to each other, and though we do not have to be adopted together, that would be ideal. We need each other to feel safe, and miss each other when we are alone. And besides... two is better than one, don't you think? Do you want me to be your little fella? UPDATE: Fella and Bella were returned by previous adopters because they are not fully potty trained. We found that Fella has a thyroid condition that is now being treated and hope this helps with his potty training. Please contact us if even slightly interested. These pups should be considered URGENT as they've been at the shelter for far too long. (Less)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis,
 Blind, Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Woody is a very loving lap dog. He keeps to himself but loves when you sit with him on your lap and pet him. I can walk him without a leash because he is a very good listener and attentive to his owner. He weighs about 7 lbs, is tan and white mix coloring, and an apple head. I rarely have problems with him and he usually is good about not peeing in the house. He is 11 years old and all he wants to do is rest and chew on toys when he isn't in a lap. He was attacked by another dog and has a weak point on his left shoulder so it is weak. He does have a brother named Hercules (a deer head chihuahua) that he ... (Read More)has been with since he was 1. He has lived a majority of his life outdoors before I got him. However, he is surprisingly well in the house. Only very few incidents with urination in the house. Woody was not originally my dog. His brother and he belonged to my best friend and her family. Her family got a pitbull and she moved in with me while she was searching for a job out of the country. When she got the job quite a few months ago, I agreed to care for them. However, I am not home and they do not get the attention they need because I am a full time student and I work full time at a library. They are trapped in their crates all day until I run home to walk them solely because they fight with each other, and they cannot control their bladder and pee on everything. I really would like to find him a loving home that can be more attentive and preferably have a yard for him to roam in, on the occasionally nice day. He isn't much for outdoors except to use the bathroom. I will also be posting an ad for his brother, but if you would like both of them, please let me know. Also, the adoption fee is not a necessity. If you are truly interested and a loving home, I will edit this to take it off. It was mainly just for help with transporting him if you are too far away for me to get there comfortably. (Less)

    Little Buddy is about 2 years old. He is house-trained and crate trained. He gets along with other dogs and is very playful. He is petrified of new people at first.

You basically have to catch him so he needs someone with patience.

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

Chihuahua
lnteresting Chihuahua Trivia Low-Cost North Carolina 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. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
