    We have two great Chihuahuas with lots of personality! These guys are both rescues that my wife and I have shared close to 7 years with. That was before we had children. We now have a 2 year old and a brand new baby. The dogs have been lost in the mix and aggressive towards our 2 year old son Levi. We would be heart broken to see them leave our family but we feel it's the fair thing to do, both for our children and our boys.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Lil Bit, and I am a little bitty 2-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. Let me tell you a little bit about myself because I'm hoping that you just might fall in love with me. More than anything, I want a forever home. You see, I was found as a stray and put into a shelter until New Rattitude came in and rescued me. Now I know the joy of being part of a family, and I love being wherever my foster parents are. I get along with the other dogs in my foster home, aside from having to let them know who is boss once in a while. I like to go outside with my canine foster brothers and sisters and play chase or just run around the yard. (By ... (Read More)the way, for a short-legged girl of only 11 lbs., I can run like the wind!) I'm hoping you don't have kitties because I'm not fond of the cats in my foster home. They are only good for chasing. I am leash trained and enjoy going for walks, although I would love a yard with a fence, where I could go outside and do my running-like-the-wind thing. I am also house trained and while I will go into a crate, I can be vocal about letting you know that I want out. So there you have it! If you're looking for an active, playful dog, here I am--Lil Bit. Now it's your turn. Apply for me and tell me a little bit about you! I'll be waiting. ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Lil Bit, please go to New Rattitude's website at http://www.NewRattitude.org/adopt.htm, where there is detailed information and a link to our adoption application.

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult


    Tutti is a delightfully friendly nine pound Chihuahua. She LOVES people and is an excellent lap dog for anyone wanting a television watching partner. She is crate trained but prefers laps to crates, which shows she is a clever girl. She is not an incessant barker because she loves people and looks forward to the doorbell ringing! She travels well in the car and walks nicely on leash. Tutti enjoys being of the center of attention (ahem, diva) so she would like to go to a home without cats or dogs.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Fearful/Anxious 

    Ginger is 10 years old and very lovable. When I got her when she was 2-3 months of age she was already very nervous of humans. She is like a cat in many ways that she loves attention but if you touch her the wrong way she doesn't like it. She is very sensitive and has high anxiety. A good home for her would be more of a quiet home, no kids, and possibly another dog. She will bark at other dogs but when they meet, she is usually nice then does not care for them, she is very independent. Any other specific questions please contact me.

She is not an alpha dog. She only barks when someone knocks on the door. We walk everyday and although there will be dogs barking all around/at her, she does not bark back. She loves to run, especially after squirrels and deer. She never catches them. She just likes ... (Read More)the chase. She listens to commands: sit, down, no, come here, drop it, go. She does not run out of an open door. She will go out but stays close (she knows when she has it good). She is very loving and gentle. I would trust her in a nursery and with babies. I've seen my 6 and 2 year-old niece and nephew dress her up and carry her around and even play with her food; Lily never snapped or bit them. She just tolerated it all. I really want to find her a good home who will love her. (Less)

    Annie is about 15 lbs and she LOVES kids!!!! I fostered her for a few weeks and she did wonderful at my house. However, when my other foster got close to having puppies we sent her to another fosters home where she started to show a bit of dominance towards larger female dogs and she went after her fosters 7 week old kitten. We are not sure exactly what was the trigger but she could no longer stay there. While she stayed with me she was around numerous other dogs and cats of all sizes and ages and never once showed any aggression or dominance.

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    When his mistress died, this brave little guy stayed by her side and kept barking. Duke did not want leave her. He was seriously dehydrated, terribly thin, filthy, and his nails were like talons. One of his nails had curled under and grown completely through his right rear foot. However, his reward for being loyal to his beloved mistress was to be taken by her relatives to the local kill shelter. At the shelter, Duke was placed on the euthanasia list. Luckily, we were able to save him in the nick of time. Duke likes to sit in laps or cuddle close while you read or watch TV. He will follow you around the house, like a little shadow. ... (Read More)Sleeping with his humans is his preference. This is an adorable, happy guy with a lot of pep in his step. Duke loves men and women and accepts affection from them equally. Due to his size and age, he would do best in an adult-only home or one where there are only gentle, older children. He gets along with other dogs. Duke has learned to pee on command - say 'go pee pee' and he does it. He is also paper and piddle pad trained. This little cutie does not need much exercise. A short stroll during potty breaks will meet his daily exercise needs. Can you make his dream of occupying a warm lap throughout his golden years come true? He will repay you with snuggles, kisses, and lots of love. Please apply to foster or adopt Duke today. If you are interested in adopting Duke, please e-mail RWarwick@nbm.org. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Peppy was born 9-22-14. He is predominantly chihuahua. I was told he was purebred but I am not sure however the vet has listed as chih.The lady who surrendered him said she paid for him as a puppy. Peppy currently weighs around 12 pounds. He was basically kept in his crate 24/7 and he developed a few little quirks due to that. The person who gets Peppy needs to be a confident dog owner and one accustomed to the 'Napoleon Complex' that comes with chihuahuas. Peppy can be a tad stand offish and defensive when he first meets a stranger. If a person will allow Peppy to get comfortable with him on his own terms then in no time he will be in your ... (Read More)lap. His normal place is perched on my lap when I am at my desk. For the most part he gets along with the other dogs, all though he tends to try to be a bit bossy. He is great with the cats. Peppy will not be adopted in to a home with small children. NO EXCEPTIONS! He is current on all shots, dewoming, flea and heartworm prevention and he is microchipped and he will be neutered. We do require a pre screen application to apply.

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Abbey is an 8 year old Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix. She loves going for walks and just spending time with her person. She gets along with everyone in her foster home.

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