    Benji is a great boy. He was rescued from a high kill Tn shelter where he escaped twice and they were going to euthanize him. We couldn't let that happen. Benji looks underweight but he is not. It's just his body. No matter what you feed him he doesn't gain weight. But blood work shows he is fine. He's a taller chihuahua which makes him look underweight. He's good with most other dogs but he does have little dog syndrome.( barks at bigger dogs) and he will chase cats if they run. Doesn't harm them but chases them. Fully vetted and a love bug. Benji is 2 years old.

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.

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.
