Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Sophie is probably about 1 to 2 years old. She is a chihuahua/terrier mix, just under 15 pounds. Her previous owners considered her an outside dog, then they left her behind when they moved. Luckily, I found her before she could get injured. She is the most affectionate dog I have ever fostered, really enjoys being held and snuggling. She has met a 9 year old girl and a 7 year old boy, she loved them both! Younger children would not be a good idea, since she is so small they could hurt her by accident. She does well with cats that are large and calm, she has met 4 so far and has been fine. I don't know how she is with other dogs. She would ... (Read More)best in a home with older children, where she isn't left alone more than 8 or 9 hours. She doesn't use the bathroom in the house or destroy anything, she is just very unhappy. She loves squeaky toys, being held, and walks in the woods by our house. Please let me know if you have any further questions! (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We are looking for a loving home for our 11 year old chihuahua, Axl. He is a very sweet dog who loves to cuddle. We are having to find him a new home as he does not get the attention he deserves since our family has grown. He has been patient with my toddler and 9 month old, but I know he would prefer to go to a home with older children and/or adult. He is cage trained and loves his home, but he needs to be walked frequently when he is not locked up so that he does my have an accident. Please consider Axl as your new best friend!

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-24-00202Oreo (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    OREO is a black and white 7 year old male Chihuahua who needs a good home and some TLC. He has been neutered. He weighs 6 pounds. Oreo has a heart condition that requires he be on medications for the rest of his life (Enalapril & lasix). He is anemic and is currently on Val Syrup but that may not be required his entire lifetime. He had to have almost all of his teeth removed due to infection, may have two teeth left, so he requires soft food and because of the heart condition, to keep his kidney function at appropriate levels, he must eat prescription Purina NF Kidney Function or Science Diet KD canned food. Oreo is good with other dogs ... (Read More)and has not been around cats. He does get a bit grouchy at times but is getting better with time. When he first came to his foster home, he did not welcome human touch at all, he was very fearful and growled/nipped every time he was approached. Oreo would do best in a home with no children or older children who do NOT want to cuddle him. His ideal day is lounging in his bed in front of the door soaking up the sun OR in the recliner beside his person. He is not very active but does get around pretty good considering he has some old injuries to his back. Oreo is house trained and crate trained. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Oreo if it means he will have a good forever home. If you are another rescue group, we will waive the adoption fee but you can make a donation toward vetting at your discretion. The adoption fee will help our 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue to cover part of the cost of the veterinary care he has received. (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.
