Rescue Me ID: 15-02-26-00360DIAMOND (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    This little southern girl is Diamond, an 8 year old Chihuahua. She is 10lbs, full of life with a big personality. She is good with other small dogs but hasn't been around large ones. Although she is ok with other small dogs she is a little bossy so might be best as an only dog. Her ideal home would be a retired couple or a family with older children. Diamond is in an overcrowded kill shelter and isn't an adopters first choice when there are younger dogs or puppies around. Although she has become a shelter staff favorite, being an older dog here in Texas her chances of being adopted are very, very slim. So we are looking for Diamond's ...

Diamond is heartworm negative, spayed, mico-chipped, up to date on her vacs and ready to make a lucky family a great dog! Her adoption fee is $170 and her secure transport is $185. ($355 total and we handle all the details!) If you would like to be her forever home, we need to hear from you now. (Less)

    This is Baby, 8 year old, 10 lb Chihuahua that has been discarded by a back yard breeder. Baby is a little shy but likes to be held and touched. She is looking for a quiet home where she can become a loved family member. Although she is 8 years old, she can bring many years of enjoyment to her new family because the average life expectancy of a Chi is 15 to 18 years! Baby is now spayed, micro chipped, up to date on her vacs, and heart worm negative. She is currently in an over crowed shelter in the high kill state of Texas where there are too many great dogs and too few good adopters. Bottom line, this little girl doesn't have a chance ...

    Why hello there, sugar! Are you looking for a dainty lady that likes to take life at a slower pace? Well then let me introduce myself. The name's Jasmine and just like my namesake I'm a delicate little flower. I have to say, there is nothing better than sitting in a lap receiving affection. I especially love a nice rump scratch! You might notice I'm not big on toys or treats, a mature lady like myself would much rather just spend my time relaxing with you. Because I like to take things easy, I am approved for homes with children 12+ and if you have other dogs please bring them by to meet me before taking me home. A special bonus, since I am ...

Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Hi, my name is Frito. I have lived in a 'fur-ever' home for two years, but I do not like living in an apartment. I am often a cuddle-bug, but I have been known to nip and bark when I get scared. I also have trouble with territory. I am looking for someone who has time to invest in rehabilitating me and giving me proper training. Open space/a yard is a must.

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

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

    I've had her since she was 8 wks old. She comes with papers. She has not been spayed, is up to date on all her shots. She will need knee surgery in the near future. We just had a second child and can not afford the surgery or have the time for her anymore. She just turned 10 this January but still acts like she's 3-5. I regret having to find her a new home but with a 2yr old and a 3 mth old we are quiet busy and can't give her the attention she deserves and needs. Asking 500 obo rehoming fee.

Chihuahua    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Barney is 7 weeks young looks to be an average puppy with no issues! He is a blank slate and will become what you make of him. We handle him many times a day and he has a brother that we'd like to keep them as a pair. His name is Buster. They really seem to love attention from humans, having experience with Chihuahuas is preferable since having them can be a chore as with any pet! These kinds of dogs need firm but affectionate homes not a part time owner!

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Candy is a tan and white female Chihuahua. She picks her person, can be very playful when she gets comfortable and loves to be held. She's shy and submissive at first, but is very happy once she's familiar with her home and people. She's kind of hit or miss with other dogs - we acquired her as a result of a death in the family, where she lived happily with two other dogs. Our house now has 5 dogs, 3 of whom are very high energy, and it's too much for Candy to be happy. Her ideal home would be a family with few other animals, where she will be the center of canine attention and will be able to cuddle with her new owner every day! Candy is ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-29-00693Tito (male)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Our family adopted Tito from a college student at the age of 4 months. He is now almost 2 1/2 years old. Despite a severe fear of the vet and anxiety with strangers, he has been a good pet. Sadly, we need to rehome him because he needs to be in a much calmer household. He loves to play with his toys, and snuggle on the couch. He follows us around the kitchen looking for treats all the time. We have four rough-and-tumble children, and while Tito loves playing with them, he is very afraid of any friends who come over for playdates. He can be a fear-biter, and we just cannot put our friends' children at risk. Tito is very comfortable with our ... (Read More)family, and our own children, but outside that circle, he is very fearful. He warms up much more quickly to adult women, and then adult men, if left alone while they are here. If our kids have sleepovers, we have to keep him in a different room at least overnight, and by morning he is okay with being around the guests. There are a couple of children he just doesn't warm up to at all, and we are not sure why. For these reasons, he would do best in a home with no children, with someone who can spoil him and take him to classes to continue to socialize him. He has responded very well to professional training and we credit that greatly for getting him comfortable with our family. He is house-trained, and great on a leash. He loves to chase sticks, squirrels and deer. We do not have other pets, so are not sure how he would be in a household with other cats or dogs. (Less)

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.
