Rescue Me ID: 15-07-02-00195Ginger (female)

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 went straight into foster when she got here and about a week later have 5 handsome all male pups. Her foster mom said that she is not good with the cat and she continuously chases him off as well as tries to chase the birds when they are out of their cage. We would def recommend a no cat/bird/small animal home. We are not completely sure how she is with other dogs yet either as she is the only dog in the home. Her pups are currently 4 weeks old and she will be available for ... (Read More)adoption after she is fully vetted, spayed and microchipped. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lily is a 4-year old, medium sized dog--24.4 lbs. Her face is a Chihuahua. I call her Chihuahua Gigantica. Her last health exam was May 5, 2015, at which she was a given a clean bill of health. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and is spayed. Personality: she is a timid dog, preferring humans to other dogs, but gets along with other dogs. She gets along with cats. 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)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    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. Annie is a bit lacking in the manners department an will walk across tables and try and counter ... (Read More)surf. She is also having a few issues with potty training but with time and a family to let her out and get her on a proper schedule I believe she will do fine! This girl is the epitome of a loving little lap dog. She will make an awesome little family member! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-09-00621Duke-Needs Foster (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Senior

Compatibility: 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 cuddle close while you read or watch TV. He will follow you around the house, like a little shadow. This is an ... (Read More)adorable, happy guy with a lot of pep in his step. His foot is all healed and he just had a complete dental. Duke thinks rotisserie chicken is the best food ever. Due to his size and age, he would do best in an adult-only home or one where there are only gentle, older children. Duke is paper and piddle pad trained. He 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. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Duke, please e-mail RWarwick@nbm.org. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-05-23-00001Mary (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Hi! I am Mary and I am one of the happiest Chihuahuas you will meet! I am SOOOOO grateful for the folks at Empty Shelter Project since they came ALL THE WAY from Virginia to New Mexico to spring me (and 40 of my closest Chihuahua friends) from a pretty bad situation. I heard that my time was just about up down there! This is why when you see me my tail is almost always just wagging away. I am SO HAPPY! My fosters are great folks that have invited me into their home. I have jumped right in to their pack of 3 other dogs and we all get along great. We get fed twice a day and they take me on 2 ~ 3 walks a day so I can do my businesses ... (Read More)outside. I wouldn't consider having an accident inside! I am not exactly sure when I was born (that was a LONG time ago) but my fosters tell me that (based on my teeth) I am about 2 ~ 3 years old. I weigh less than 10 pounds and I am fully grown. I enjoy hanging out with my new pack! We get along great all the time. When we are out for our walks we all hang out together and if I happen to see a silly cat or rabbit I just give it a passing glance and keep going along my 'merry' way! When we eat everybody gets pretty much the same dish so we all just give each other our space and munch away. I am not too sure about play time yet, so I prefer to hop up on the couch as high up as I can get and observe everything that is going on. I also like to crawl into my foster's lap sometime if I hear loud noise or if something is going on that I do not quite understand. Usually though it is enough for me just to hang out on my own and be close by to my fosters. I have not had much experience with these 'little people' that come around during the adoption events. My fosters do not have any of these little folks in their house so I have not been really tested around them. I have not shown any aggression to these little ones at the adoption events though so I am sure I would get along just fine in a new home with some of these little people. When bedtime rolls around I go to the room (my fosters call it a crate) that I share with another foster, Latte. We just cuddle up together and catch some Z's. Personally I do not need Latte around but the poor thing needs someone to take the lead so I am showing her the ropes while we are fostered together. Sometimes my fosters give me an extra special treat and let me sleep in bed with them and their other Chihuahua! So I just stretch out in between them and COULD not be more relaxed!

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Hans is a 5-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, who is very loving and eager to please. He has adapted to his foster home quickly and gets along well with the other dogs in the home, though he's not fond of cats and has a tendency to chase them. Hans enjoys being around people and loves to be the center of attention. He wants to be wherever you are. He enjoys curling on your lap while you are watching TV or just relaxing, and you'll hardly know he's there because he weighs just 12 lbs. He's also fond of sleeping with his people in their bed where he can snuggle, whether it's under or on top of the covers or on the pillow (he's not picky). ... (Read More)Hans loves playing with toys, especially squeaky ones, and taking walks, doing well on a leash, but he would also really like a fenced-in backyard where he could leisurely soak up the sun. Hans is house trained and will tolerate going into a crate, although he is not fond of it. He would do well as an only dog but would also be fine with a canine brother or sister. If a loyal and loving companion is what you're looking for, your hunt is over because handsome Hans is right here! ========================================================================================If you are interested in adopting Hans, 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.

    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.

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.

    Some Chihuahuas are so small they can stand upright in a person's hand. Though associated with Mexico, Chihuahuas have origins in China. Chihuahuas were sacred animals to pre-Columbian Native Americans.
