Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Hi I'm Lucy and I'm looking for a new home. I love my family but there's a lot of crying and smelly things around (with a new baby around). I'm a very happy, sweet and good-natured dog. I love children and have never been aggressive with them. I'm not a huge fan of cats because they never want to play. I enjoy snuggling and being petted. I also like to go outside and explore and use the bathroom. Don't worry though I never run away and if I did get lost I'm microchipped. If you're looking for another sweet addition to your family I'm your girl!

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Hi there my name is Snuggles but you can just call me snuggly poo. I am about a year old and they think I am a Pug Chihuahua mix. Nobody really knows for sure. The one thing they do know is that I am super cute! I am a very happy girl, I love children and other dogs. Cats are ok even though I try to get them to play and well they just play weird. I am totally house broken and crate trained. My favorite things to do are play, eat and sleep. I love treats and will happily stand up like you do for one. I would like a family that will treat me like a prince and let me snuggle with. I love to snuggle, it is my MOST favorite. I am up to date on ... (Read More)all of my vaccinations, I am spay and I have a micro chip. if you are in the market for a super cute, snuggly sweet best friend then I am the girl for you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-26-00195Gordon (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Very cute, happy low-rider boy. Looks like he's a Corgi/Chi blend. He is an older dog approx. 5-6 years old we believe. He's possessive of affection and growls at other dogs when he is being petted. But he loves, loves, loves adults. He is probably not suitable for a family with young children. At just 27 lbs. and a lovin' sponge, he will be a great pet for someone who wants constant companionship by their side. Has been given Parvo/distemper, rabies and Bordatella vaccinations, as well as de-wormed. Adoption fee of $71 covers spay/neuter at a local vet and first set of vaccinations. Rescues with their 501c3 pull for $5.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi. I'm Justin. I am just a puppy who has a rough start. I had Parvo and was very sick for a time but now I'm all better and ready to take on the world. I am a typical puppy who likes to play, eat, sleep, play, snuggle, etc. My pictures were taken after a very long day of playing and meeting people at a country fair. I was a bit worn out. I am still a baby and get tired easy but it does not take me long to recover! Are you my new playmate? if so call my foster mom about me. She will tell you what a good puppy I am.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    This is Squirt. He and his lot-mate were surrendered to the animal shelter by their owner who stated that they were no longer wanted. Having lived at the end of a chain for most of his life, (almost 2 years.) Squirt loves any and all attention that he can get. He's working hard on being house broken, but has been given the nickname 'Squirt' for a reason as, like most boy dogs, he likes to mark his territory. His shots are up to date, and he has been neutered. He weighs about 7 pounds and loves to sit in your lap. Plays well with other dogs and even the resident cat.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucky's 90-year-old forever mom had to be placed in assisted living recently. Current family is unable to keep him. Would love to find an older woman who doesn't work full time and who would be home with him the majority of the time. He loves companionship, is fun, likes to go on walks, but isn't demanding. He lays on the couch with you, and sleeps on the bed if you let him. He is slow to warm up to strangers, but he has become friendly with the nieces and nephews who have visited over the years. Just needs time to warm up to folks. But he's very loyal to his mom and will bark to alert her of anything he hears that is out of the ordinary. He ... (Read More)is house trained and will take care of his business if you take him out on a regular basis. Lucky will make a wonderful companion for someone who wants a loyal, low maintenance, and happy dog! (Less)

    Abigail was adopted years ago as a puppy and sadly her owner had to give her up because she had to move in with her elderly mother to care for her and her elderly mother was highly allergic to Abigail.

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 the oldest breed on the North American continent. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
