Rescue Me ID: 18-04-16-00522Tucker (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Tucker is literally the best chihuahua you'll ever come across. Hands down. He's about 2-3 yrs old. Black with two white socks in the back. He doesn't bark at the door when visitors come, he doesn't bark at dogs on the street, he's very quiet and submissive and LOVES to get up under the covers to snuggle right next to you, and sits quietly and calmly for car rides. He comes when called and can walk off-leash without bolting away, he's also house trained and knows 'sit' when motivated just right. He's shy but will come army-crawling towards you, ears back, tail wagging, because he simply can't help the call for attention. Seriously, all this ... (Read More)lil boy wants is some love. He's lived here in my apartment for only a few days, perfectly harmonious with my small lovebird and two cats and boyfriend. Now, about the 'arthritis'(it's not really, I just couldn't find an option for what he has): We adopted Tucker from a kill shelter a day before my birthday (04/12/18), and took him to the vet today (04/16/18) only to find out that he has severe muscle atrophy in his back left leg because of a injured tendon that is also causing knee displacement and fluid buildup in the joints. (he seemed totally fine before I adopted him, but as soon as we got home I noticed a slight limp). He could either be on medication for the rest of his life or get it surgically fixed, which unfortunately, is a few thousand dollars that we don't have. (And what's even more upsetting is, of course, the shelter will not guarantee or take any responsibility for temperament or physical health issues, but when I adopted him, they gave me a document stating an at-a-glance 'clean bill of health'... so riddle me that. Regardless, it freakin kills me, and my boyfriend and I are devastated... but we want to do right by this little man and find him a forever home that can care for him in ways we currently just can't. Other than the leg, he's fine and happy as can be. I would keep him if I could in a heart beat, but our financial options are limited when it comes to hefty expenses such as this at the moment. Please, someone help this loving dog. I just want what's best for him :,( (Less)

    Cricket is very loving and sweet 1 years old female. She is a princess who needs to be spoiled. Cricket needs someone who can show as much love to her, as she does to them.

She needs some training with walking and socializing on leash. Cricket is very playful and full of energy, so she needs an active owner. She loves playing with dogs and is good around cats.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Dexter is a 6 yr old Chihuahua. He really loves attention and will breakdance for you or grab your hand to pet him if you are close enough. He is a ball of energy and has so much love to give. He does very good on a leash and loves walks. He is very curious so would need to always be on a leash when going for walks. He loves to play fetch with his toys and will play tug of war with you when he brings it back. He loves to follow you wherever you go. He needs reminder when in a new place about potty outside. He will go on potty pads usually so could use those until he remembers to go outside. He has done very good with other dogs, but ... (Read More)has only been around small dogs so I'm not sure how he would do with bigger dogs. He is best friends with the cat (they are the same size) and they love to play. I think he would do best in a home with older kids. He has just had a complete dental. (Less)

    He is a great 4.5 year old dog, we got him when he was 8 wks old. Kota has had a hard time adjusting to sharing mom since his human sister was born 2 yrs ago. He is a very loyal dog and loves to be spoiled and sit in your lap. He's completely trained and listens fairly well. He's usually a very calm dog but does get excited when we return home. He loves to sleep and lay around, but also loves to run and play outside occasionally. Kota has kind of removed himself and almost acts depressed even more since we had another baby last month. He is fine with kids just has a jealousy issue towards our kids. I miss seeing his happy go lucky ... (Read More)personality and want him to feel loved again.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Chihuahua in Utah
    Chihuahua Dogs can make good pets in Utah 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.

    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world. Chihuahuas were the oldest breed on the North American continent. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China.
