Rescue Me ID: 17-01-11-00273Moxy (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    This dog is located in Tennessee. Adoption Donation $125 in TN, $175 plus transportation fee for out of state adoptions. We think this beautiful girl has just the perfect name! Meet our marvelous Miss Moxy! She is a 7 year old, 10 pound, Dachshund/Chihuahua mix girl, who is just spilling over with personality and determination! Moxy's short stature and snaggle tooth smile does little to get her down. She has a character we should all aspire to. Moxy is already crate and house trained, so all she needs is a fun loving caregiver who will enjoy her independent spirit and zeal for life. She would also do best in a home with no small pets, such ... (Read More)as birds or hamsters etc. as Moxy prefers to be the smallest thing in the house, so she can get all the affection and attention she requires. She came to us in need of a good teeth cleaning (which we have provided). She is missing a couple of teeth because of her previous poor care, so she may prefer her kibble a little on the softer side. Moxie would simply adore an adult-only forever home where she can be lavished with love and live a life of luxury, just lying around on the couch with her new pet parents. Won't you please make some space in your life for this little girl with a big personality? She will be patiently waiting for you to apply! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-10-00344Tia (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tia and her buddy, Rusty (ID# 17-01-10-00348, possibly a whippet mix), are desperately in need of a forever home. Their elderly owner recently passed away and they are being cared for by a neighbor. However, they only have a few days left before they are taken to animal control. Please help them by adopting or even volunteering to foster them while they await their own new adoptive family. Tia is 5 years old and liked to sleep in 'the big bed' with Rusty and her former owner. Like Rusty, Tia also enjoys sleeping in 'the big bed' -- under the covers, of course! She is a bit timid and can be somewhat skiddish (as all Chihuahua lovers know). ... (Read More)And while she loves people, she definitely does NOT like canes or hats. Tia would do best if she could be adopted along with Rusty. They have been through a lot of change recently. We feel that separating them at this point would only add to the stress they have already suffered. While we are not asking for a fee, we do request that prospective owners provide a note from their current veterinarian stating that they are responsible pet parents. New pet owners should find a veterinarian in advance of adoption and provide the same kind of information. (Less)

Animal ID: 8784Happy Pants (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Happy Pants is a Spayed Female Chihuahua mix She is approx 9 yrs old and weighs 5 lbs. Hello, they call me Happy Pants at the shelter because I've never known what my real name is since someone brought me there. Let me tell you a little about myself. They told me I'm around 8-10 yrs old and weigh around 5 %BD lbs. I was not doing very well in the shelter environment because I am so afraid of all the strange people and noises there, even though everyone is so very nice. So I always snap and snarl at anyone who comes near me, except for the people I know who are there a lot. On top of that I got sick and had to go spend a few days at a ... (Read More)place they call the vet's office so they could treat my illness and give me medicine. When I was well enough to come back to the shelter they had to keep me in the sick area because I still had to have medicine to make me feel better. Thankfully I feel much better now. Although everyone there tries to be very nice it's a scary place for me and I'm thinking I need to protect myself, so I just put on this big show of being ferocious and I got a bad reputation. Down deep I want to be picked up and snuggled but I'm very fearful of hands coming at me. If someone just goes ahead and picks me up or lets me come to them and climb in their lap, then I calm down. Anyway, because of all this someone is letting me stay with them at their home and I just love being in a home. They said it's something called a foster home and they are my foster family, whatever that means. While I've been here I have adjusted very well. I just love to sleep in the bed under the covers and go for car rides. They have bought me lots of squeaky toys and I just love to play with my toys. I run around tossing them up and then chasing and squeaking them. I can entertain myself for a very long time doing that. My foster family says I'm very smart too because I am house-trained and if I lose my toy I can tell them where it is so they can get it back for me. Although I love to be snuggled and petted after I'm in a lap, I have kind of picked my favorite person to be with and that's who I always want. I just love it when I'm scared and she talks to me calmly and tells me everything is going to be okay and no one will ever hurt me again. I really want to believe that, but sometimes it's hard for me. Oh and one more thing. I'm not sure if I would do well in a home with small children. I'm so tiny and afraid sometimes they might be too rough with me and it might be best if I am in a quieter home so I can get lots of attention and play with my toys and go with my person everywhere and sleep under their covers. Although, my foster family loves me very much they tell me I can't stay here forever because there is a wonderful person waiting just for me somewhere. They want me to find my forever home because they said there are so many other sweet doggies like me that need a loving foster family too until they can find their forever home. So if I find my person then that will leave them a spot to have another homeless baby like me. My foster mommy promised me she will be really picky about my new person and check them out well and even let me do a home visit first-just to see if I like them and they like me. So if you think you have patience to give me time to adjust to someplace new and love me anyway if I get fearful then you can respond to this and they will put you in touch with my foster mommy who can talk with you about me. Thank you for letting me tell you about myself. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered 

    Meet Big Ern -- an 8-lb. precious, sweet-spirited Chihuahua/Feist/Pug (?) mix -- he is approximately 5 years old and incredibly loving/sweet. He loves to snuggle/cuddle with his humans, and is incredibly smart -- loves to play fetch and tug 'o war, going for walks, and snuggling in your lap. He is good with older children (age 10+), but not any younger (he can get snappy). He needs to be in an only dog home, as he definitely gets sassy/aggressive with other dogs. He's not a big fan of thunderstorms or fireworks and barks when alerted by loud noises and other dogs. His owners rescued him about 4 years ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed his ... (Read More)company - he is so incredibly sensitive/loving, but he just doesn't get along with the other fur babies in his home/neighborhood. And sadly, with his current owners' busy schedules/baby in the house, they just cannot give him the attention/consistency/love that he deserves. He is potty trained and fully vetted -- neutered, vaccinated, HW tested, micro-chipped, current HW/Flea protection, and current on shots. We would like to find him a loving forever home. We do NOT want him to fall into the wrong hands. We want to make sure that he has the best possible home, is safe and well-loved. Thank you. (Less)

    This darling baby is approximately 3 years old and is a lovely mix of Jack Russell and Chihuahua so he has the best of both really. Bailey came to GAPR from Bartlett Animal Shelter a while ago. Since Bailey is quite shy, he generally takes some time to warm up before he can feel comfortable and allow his colorful personality to shine through (as you will notice in the pics attached). Bailey is fine with other dogs as long as they are not intimidating or the bullying kinds. What would be best suited for Bailey, is a mature home with people who have had pets/ are experienced with animals and can offer him the time, space and hope needed to ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-21-00148Barney (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Barney has been with us at Russell Rescue for quite some time now. He is a distinguished southern gentleman; very, cool, calm and collected at our adoption events. He is a pleasure both in and out of his crate and so perfect on a leash, a 2 year old could walk him. This is probably why he keeps getting overlooked, he is too quiet! Barney would be a wonderful companion dog for someone that is looking for a four legged friend that takes life at a slower pace. He would enjoy a little morning walk with you and then maybe a midday nap, he would make an excellent co-pilot for someone that likes to take afternoon drives. Of course all dogs love ... (Read More)spending time roaming around outside but Barney isn't going to need a ton of room to run, he would much rather be right by you. I think he could very easily adjust to apartment/condo living. I could even see Barney enjoying life on the open road, traveling cross country via RV or tractor trailer for those looking to add a road buddy to their life! Barney is very affectionate and soaks up any attention shown to him. After spending just a little time with this boy he will absolutely melt your heart. He has some of the deepest soulful eyes; I swear you could get lost in them. Barney can picky about the dogs he shares his time with, which has been the only issue we have heard from people that have taken him on trial periods. He isn't a huge fan of sharing his person. Barney will need an adopter not afraid to be the 'alpha' and probably a trial run would be best if there are any other dogs already in the home. I do believe he would be fine around children, although as with all dogs kids need to be taught to respect a dog and how to properly handle him. Considering his lack of interest in the cats at Petsmart, I also think a feline roommate would be fine with Barney. We are looking for a foster or (even better) a forever home for Barney.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    YOGI is a 4 year old red and white Chi mix male who is smarter than the average bear and most of the other dogs at his foster home.

If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport Yogi if it means he will have a good forever home.

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    We need a foster/possible permanent home. BB has been boarded since 7/5. He is 13 years old and quite pampered. We know that he doesn't do well with cats but hasn't been around other dogs. His person has been hospitalized since 7/4 and may or may not be returning home. He is very sad at the kennel but family members cannot take him due to allergies, location, other pets, etc. He is very sweet and a finicky eater. He has not used 'pee pads'. We are hoping to find someone to love and care for him so that he'll be happier in his golden years.

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.

Chihuahua
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. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
