    Tinkerbelle is 11 weeks old and 7 lbs. She has one blue eye and one green eye. She is a absolutely precious. We found Tinkerbelle on the road, dragging her hind legs.

Tinkerbelle needs some TLC and will only be adopted to a family that is able and willing to provide the necessary care she requires.

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
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!

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Tinkerbell is a cute little girl and we are guessing chi-beagle based on her size - 16 pounds - and her physical characteristics. Tink came in as a neglect case when local authorities charged her former owner for not taking care of her animals. Tinkerbell was covered in mange but that has now been treated and while her hair needs to fill in, she is out of the contagious stage. She is VERY friendly, has great social skills, is good with other dogs, and is a happy little fat dog. She is about 10 months-1 year old so still very young, but out of that wretched stage. Tinkerbell is heartworm negative, current on her vaccines, and spayed. Please ... (Read More)ask how you can apply to adopt this pooch and give her the life she deserves! (Less)

    Nico is a super cute and super sweet little chi boy who only weighs about 7 pounds. He was an owner surrender because his mom could no longer care for him.

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-21-00241Xavier (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I'm looking to find a good home for my puppy. There are several factors going on in my life that I didn't know would affect him when I got him. I've recently moved to the area, so I don't know anyone which has affected his sociability, I'm gone on work days for up to 10 hours at a time so he is left confined to the kitchen area. This is so he doesn't hurt himself by chewing on something he shouldn't but it also inhibits his area to play in so he has a lot of unspent energy. These 2 reasons are why I feel he'd be better off in a home with people who have the time and patience to work with him. I did put that he's good with adults but not kids ... (Read More)only because he hasn't been around any kids, he could very well be fine around them too. He just needs training and time which sadly I cannot give him and I feel this could lead to some very bad habits forming. I can supply any additional information needed to anyone TRULY interested in adopting. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Rehoming due to inability to adjust to new family member. Khloey is a mixed breed chi. She is very high strung and loves to play. Unfortunately we have had a very hard time getting her potty trained so she needs to go to someone who has the time to train her and show her lots of love and attention. She is a very loyal family member. Will need to be updated on vaccines.

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.

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.
