Animal ID: D150076Roo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Roo's Story... This dog is located and fostered in Tennessee. Minimum Adoption Donation $150 in TN, $200 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions. Are you that special adopter who will match with little Roo perfectly? Well, to fill that position, you must: 1) Love dogs. 2) Appreciate moderate energy in a little dog, especially one that weighs just16 lbs. 3) Be aware that an 8-year-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix has YEARS more to enjoy life and make you laugh. 4) Let him snuggle with you or your kids (he grew up in a home with respectful kids, so he's great with them). 5) Have a fenced yard and monitor your home's outside doors ... (Read More)closely (yes, Roo can push a screen door open). 6) Enjoy a lengthy game of fetch (check out the video!). 7) Let him outside in a timely manner to potty. 8) Be grateful that your adopted dog is leash -, crate-, and doggy-door-trained and that he knows the sit command (working on down and stay now). 9) Not worry if someone sticks their hand in his food bowl (he won't bite). 10) Overlook the scars he has from being attacked by a big dog and spending 5 weeks in a vet clinic recovering. 11) Be aware that his ears hear EVERYTHING (especially your approaching car or kibble jingling in a food bowl). 12) Be able to sidestep a happy tail (Roo's never stops wagging unless he's asleep). 13) Accept that your adopted dog will likely make your furniture his bed (but he's very trainable). 14) Be patient as he meets strangers and other dogs (may be submissive at first introduction). 15) Not raise chickens (or have neighbors who do) 16) Understand that a firm 'No' or 'Ack!' is correction enough for any behavior mistakes (Roo becomes very submissive). 17) Be willing to continue his monthly flea/worm/heartworm preventative and daily nutritional joint supplement and keep his DHPP and rabies vaccinations up to date. 18) Tolerate excitement or chastisement piddling while he adjusts to his new home. 19) Keep him safe inside your heart and home and love him to his last breath. We would love to hear from you if you feel you are the person/family we have described. Roo has already been neutered and microchipped and had a recent dental cleaning by a vet, so he's ready to go home with you as soon as you are approved as his adopter! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-09-00398Tara (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    During the late-February severe weather in Tennessee, Tara was found as a stray in a very rural area . She was so cold, hungry and confused. When a good Samaritan stopped and put here in a warm vehicle, fed her and showed her compassion, Tara immediately blossomed into the most gracious, humble little girl in the world. While she was underweight and no one knows what she'd been through, Tara held no grudges. She lives to be around people. Tara is an amazing little lap dog. She is playful and very funny. Tara would be perfect in a home with older adults, children 8 and over, or a low energy household. She does not require extended ... (Read More)outside time. Tara is only a year old and she has been amazing with her housetraining. She is not a barker by nature, so apartment life would be fine for her. She has been great with the dogs she's been exposed to, and even the office cat at the vet! If those doe eyes don't melt you, those little freckled feet will! ADOPTION FEE: $225, includes spay, vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. Out of state adoptions are possible; however, we must approve of the transportation method and all transport costs are the responsibility of the adopter.

Animal ID: D150055Shady Ray (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Shady Ray ***Sweet Senior***'s Story... This dog is located and fostered in Tennessee. Minimum Adoption Donation $100 in TN, $150 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions. Adoption fee waived for local TN Senior Adopters. Shady Ray is an experienced pup who already knows what it takes to be man's best friend! Meet Shady Ray, the sweet little senior Chihuahua mix (8-10 years old, about 12 pounds) who already has years of practice in the fine art of friendship!! This wonderful little man was a constant companion his entire life when his owner unfortunately passed away. Shady Ray was sad at first, but he still has so much love to ... (Read More)give and he has warmed up nicely to his foster mom! He would make an absolute perfect companion for a retiree, or any family that would love and care for him just as he is. He s more than content to occupy himself quietly by lazing about, catching some daydreams while you are at work. Shady Ray would prefer to lay quietly in his own little bed than be an always-on-your-lap kind of dog. He would actually prefer a quiet home without many goings-on. He also gets along fine with other animals, should you have any, but still generally prefers to keep to himself. Shady Ray does not want to run any marathons, but as an older fella, he has stiff joints, and could definitely use some short walks to make sure he does not get uncomfortable. This little dog is such a wonderful companion--he demands very little, and he gives so much love in return! He is such a sweet soul. So won't you consider adopting a senior like Shady Ray? Their bodies might be old, but their heart are made of gold! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Tennessee
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Tennessee 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 Tennessee Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
