     We were contacted by a woman who is a manager of a vet hospital and has a real love for her animals. We went over to her house to meet her personally and see where Gunny would be residing and got a real surprise. The lady already has two Labradors, one Chihuahua and three cats. I was a little anxious how Gunny would react to these other animals, but it was like he went to heaven. Pals to run and play with, a loving and caring owner, and other animals to teach him the tricks like housebreaking outdoors and coming when called. I think this is the perfect setting for Gunny and the new owner said she would keep in touch via email and send photos. She lives on two acres of fenced yard and has a whole wing devoted to the animals. She also has two children ages nine and eleven who are nuts about Gunny. Thank you, Rescue Me, for having the website to post these animals who are in need of new homes. This has alleviated the anxiousness of handing off my 'baby'. I know she is in good hands.

     My wife found this website through a Facebook feed and decided to take a look. We recently lost a female Chihuahua because of age and wanted to give the chance to another female by doing a rescue. She came across CC's post and immediately made a connection. She forwarded the post to my email, and when I read it, I knew we needed to help her. Although she may have some health issues, this did not discourage us to help her. We have scheduled a visit to the vet this coming Monday to learn more from her frequent water intake and urination (although we have an idea as we already had another dog with these symptoms). Regardless of the prognosis, we will make sure CC gets the quality of life she deserves, the love she need and all the accommodations needed. So far she had transitioned very well into my current fur family and I know she understands the love and affection she will receive. Thank you Rescue Me for giving us the opportunity to rescue a dog in need.

     My experience with adopting Little Papi was awesome. There was great communication with volunteers. Everyone was so helpful through the adoption process. Little Papi is everything his foster parents and I discussed. He's such a little love bug. This story has a very happy pet and pet parent! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     A couple months ago I took in a poor little senior male Chihuahua named Grady. He wasn't in the best of health. My husband and I rescued him from a hoarding situation. After a few vet trips and two surgeries, we were able to nurse him back to 100%. He is one of the most grateful, loving, affectionate dogs I have ever had the pleasure of loving. However, my baby of the pack (four Chihuahuas not including Grady), Ringo (also the ONLY male) decided that he did not appreciate another male being brought into his home and started constantly mistreating this precious little dog. Nothing vicious just always growling and pushing him, wouldn't let him eat, we couldn't show Grady much attention if Ringo was around or it made things worse. We had to stay on Ringo all the time. In spite, he decided he would start peeing on the little guy (Grady weighs four pounds and Ringo weighs nine pounds). So my husband and I discussed several options of what we could do to stop Ringo's bad behavior and tried them all. Nothing seemed to work and poor little Grady was not being given the quality of life he so deserved. So with a very heavy heart we decided to rehome him. I have never had to do this before because I am usually the forever home. With all my heart, I did not want to let this little guy go. But I know he deserves to be in a home where he can get as much love and attention as he wants, After what he had been through he deserves to be the star of the show. So I placed him on the same site that I found my precious Fancy (Rescue Me) and I sifted through inquiries until I found just the right home for him. It was a widow that just lost her husband in March. She was sad and lonely and wanted a companion. I met with her so she could meet our little guy, and I saw the joy in her eyes. I knew that he had found an even better forever home then I could give him. As she got into her car and drove off with him, tears poured down my face and I began to think about the precious lady that had to do the same thing for my sweet baby Fancy due to having a stroke. I only had Grady for a couple months and it broke my heart to let him go. I cannot imagine how hard it was for her to give up my precious Fancy after raising her from a baby. I want you to know how grateful I am that I found Resue Me and that it worked out for me to get that little girl. She has brought me so much joy. She is so attached to me and I love her so much. I am so thankful for that lady being selfless enough to allow me to have such a precious gift. I know she had to feel exactly as I did when she had to let her go and I hate that terribly for her. But please know that as long as I live she will always be greatly loved and cared for. Since I was 9yrs old when I got my first Chihuahua I have had an undying love for the breed. I don't expect everyone to understand how much I love my dogs and I know it sounds silly to some people, but I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate Rescue Me and that wonderful lady's sacrifice. And even though I never had the pleasure of meeting her because her daughter made the exchange for her due to her health, that I think of her often. I am still in contact with the lady that I adopted Fancy from as well as the lady that gave my precious Lil' Grady a home and he is loving life and getting all the love, hugs, and kisses he so richly deserves. This site has been a blessing to so many animals and people alike. Thank you!

     Thank you, Rescue Me! I was looking for a small rescue dog. They were very expensive to adopt. I kept looking and finally, I found Ami, who was being rehomed by his owners. He looked cute, and I called to contact them. They told me that they were sorry, but they had to take him to the Animal Shelter. I went there, and was able to adopt him. He's a nice little dog, very friendly and smart.

     Bella hit the jackpot with her new family! She will have a brother and sister, and a mom and dad who love her bunches! This family drove six hours to come get this little girl from our rescue. Thanks to Rescue Me, they saw her and just had to give her the love she deserves. This would not have happened if not for this site!

     It was so heartbreaking for me to put my beloved Pip before my own selfishness of wanting to keep him. After all, why should I care if he is alone 18 hours of the day right? Wrong! When you love someone, you have to think of them first. When I found this site, and read the advice they gave, I knew I was on the right track. I was able to chose a family for my sweet little boy who are going to give him everything I hoped to be able to give him. They even promised to send photos to me. Pip will never be alone again. He now has a whole family of humans to love him as well as several animal brothers and sisters. A fenced play area so he can go outside whenever he wants. He has a great vet waiting to add him to the family plan. This site made all of that possible. It makes the heartache so much easier to handle; knowing that because I took the time to use this site I was able to find everything he needed. I don't have to worry. I know he is with people who will love him as much as I do. Rescue Me answered my prayers.

     Thank you, Rescue Me! Three, sweet Chihuahuas were adopted by a nice couple who will give them a loving forever home. They gave a generous donation to Rescue Me per my request in lieu of an adoption fee. I am very happy with the results and had quite a few inquiries. This was an answer to my prayers for three Chihuahuas who needed to be rescued. Many thanks.

     I found Charlie on your website. He is a beautiful little boy. I would not be surprised if he is a purebred long hair Chihuahua. He behaves well is calm, but energetic. He is three years old and is a perfect companion for me. Is interested in his surroundings, but very quiet. Haven't heard him bark yet. I think I found the perfect fit. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I had many responses to her post on Rescue Me. She had a daughter who contacted me for her mother who'd just lost her long lived furbaby that looked almost identical to Sassy. They drove three hours to come visit and meet her for about an hour and a half. The connection between Sassy and the family was almost instant. She's now an only furbaby with loving forever parents. They agreed to sign paperwork that if for ANY reason they couldn't keep or take care of her, she'd come back to me, not a pound or any one else. She's now a princess. I rescue small dogs very often. I don't belong to a group or organization, I do this for love and stopping neglect and abuse of those with no voice. Every rescue is equally important and special. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     Our dog, Belle, found just the right new home through Rescue Me! Her new people loved her even before they met her through the communication and pictures we shared through this site. Once they met her, there was absolutely no doubt about it. She went home with them. Prior to meeting these wonderful people, I checked out their side of life by calling their vet to be sure they took care of the animals they already owned. They proved to be wonderful pet owners. I am very happy with Rescue Me. My pet needed to have a new home. Thank you, thank you Rescue Me. I am sending you the donation these wonderful people gave me.

     I was skeptical at first that this site would be able to help me - especially when I read that sometimes a dog is adopted in 24 hours. But I gave it a try. Unbelievably, I got four responses with six hours, and one of them turned out to be the perfect couple! They live a half hour away and they loved my Peanut. As sad as I am to see him go, I know that he will be in good hands. Thank you so much, Rescue Me!

     I found a sweet dog that happened to be pregnant. She had her pups and I posted them on Rescue Me. There were contacts within a day, and everyone was so kind and patient when my home network went down. All three pups are going to good homes after they are weaned, and mom gets to stay with me. This site made it very easy to find good people to care for theses pups and take the stress of re homing them well off of my shoulders! I'm appreciative.

     We saw Rocco on Rescue Me! After reading his bio, we thought he'd be a perfect match for us. He is definitely high energy; he loves to go for walks and bounce around the house. He is a great jumper and quickly learned that cuddling on the couch is just not allowed... It's encouraged! He is still a little nervous around new people, especially men, but he is quickly socializing with them. He was house trained from go, which was a really pleasant surprise. He totally bonded with Katy and me from day one. I suspect he really wasn't sure how much time he'd have with us since it sounded like he had several owners in his short seven to eight months of life. But he's starting to understand that this is it... We are his forever home. He loves toys - squeaky ones especially - and he loves to play with them by himself or with us. He loves watermelon and lots of veggies and fruits, which was a huge surprise as well. All-in-all, this has been a great experience. There have been some struggles, but they have been totally worth it. The love, affection and playfulness have filled our lives back up after the loss of our last little Jack Russell/Pug/Chihuahua Shrek. He was our best friend and companion, and I think he is A-OK with us adopting little Rocco.

     Charlie was a four year old, beautiful, long hair Chihuahua Mix (male). His family was no longer able to care for him. They took him to the local Animal Control/Shelter. We took him in as a foster and found a great companion. He was adopted by a wonderful, mature gentleman. Thank you Rescue Me, again!

     I visited the foster parent of several Chihuahuas with the hopes of adopting one in particular, but this sweet, little girl just climbed into my arms. That was all I needed. She chose me, and I'm so thrilled! She's playful, loves to cuddle and to be held when she's not chasing her new doggie brother and sister around the house. I had lost my nine year old Chihuahua to renal disease six months ago and was completely heartbroken. Our new rescue pup, Leeloo, is bringing so much joy to our family. Who rescued who, right?! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     They called her Farrah, but she really only looked up to 'Pretty Girl'. I am guessing someone called her that in her life. She sat in a kill shelter for a month where they were about to list her as URGENT. I got her right in time. She was just so scared. She had been here a few weeks when they said, 'okay time to list her'. She was gaining confidence once again, and within a few days, 'Pretty Girl' was already adopted out to a very kind, loving family looking for a companion for their other rescue dog, a Chi/Min Pin. They stayed for a while, and with time, she trusted them and seemed like she was ready to go with them. They were so excited to take her to meet their dog and to have her join their family. This dog hit the JACK POT... Such great people! Thanks Sarah, Travis and family. Happy Tails, 'Pretty Girl'. And thank you, Rescue Me!

     I posted Miss Daisy on Rescue Me. The situation was desperate for her. There were multiple rescue's doing all they could as well. It turned out that I personally pulled her from the shelter just before her time ran out. Her fear aggression vanished with an hour and she was completely social with me and my dogs in three hours. Even better she was adopted two days later to a forever home! YAY!!! So the reason this site applies here is this... Today, I received a call from a woman interested in Daisy. She had just lost her little Chihuahua a few days earlier. Although Daisy was not available I earned that she was quite interested in fostering!! (Seems like there are never enough fosters available.) I was able to put her in touch with a rescue local to her and only because of my efforts with Daisy and a couple of other dogs I just happened to know of a rescue that was close to her home. So, because of Rescue Me another foster home is likely going to be available soon! Super exciting stuff! I also discovered in this process that I can be a foster for small dogs. Thank you Rescue Me! One would think with all the posts here, it's easy to get lost, this is proof that it works!!! -Scott

     I adopted my new fur baby last weekend. He is the most precious puppy you would ever want to meet and SO SMART! My husband is amazed at his intelligence and he is only 10 and a half weeks old! I had a very pleasant experience. Prior to contacting Rescue Me, I went to see a Chihuahua puppy from a listing on Craigslist. The lady wanted $150 for the puppy, so we met. The dog she brought was not the one in the picture and it wasn't even a Chihuahua! We decided to take it anyway, then went it was time to pay she increase the price to $350! Needless to say, we did not get that puppy. Heartbroken, we found this website. Everything was exactly as stated and the foster mom was incredibly nice. She gave us the shot records and answered ALL of my questions... And there were a LOT of questions. Thanks so much for providing this invaluable service. I am so grateful for my puppy and for this website!

     I had two Chihuahua puppies that are very young sisters. I was fostering them, until I found their forever home. I only wanted a home that wanted this breed and was familiar with this breed, that is why I went to Rescue Me. I had several inquiries, and they were all great candidates, but the one family I chose stood out to be the best choice for these sweet little sisters, that just cannot be separated. I only want the best for these puppies, and feel that this will be the perfect forever home for them. I would highly recommend your rescue service to anyone. Thank you!

     Thank you, Rescue Me. It was truly a miracle that Tinker found his forever mommy, Dottie. He was almost euthanized before I discovered him. He acted ferocious to anyone he didn't know. But I saw a little scared boy trying to keep the scary people away. I took him home after getting him neutered and within 24 hours, he was a different dog. He wanted to be constantly petted and was either in my lap or only inches away. I thought I would never be able to find someone to understand him and believe in him. Then came Dottie and they are the best of friends. The End.

     I adopted two beautiful Chihuahuas through Rescue Me. I would highly recommend using this site. I originally went to see Tinkerbell, but after meeting Foxy I couldn't leave with just one. My husband and I fell in love with both upon meeting them. We already had three dogs at home. That night we had four dogs sleeping with us in bed with my Greyhound on his comfy bed next to us on the floor. I could tell from speaking to Nicole and her husband that they are truly devoted to finding good homes for these poor dogs, some with horrible beginnings. Foxy and Belle will always be loved and cared for. They stole our hearts. So happy I found them.

     We received three inquiries from our Rescue Me posting, two of which were excellent prospects to adopt 'Lucky', our Chihuahua. It was a difficult decision on which one to select, but one of them opted out at the last minute because of not having an enclosed yard to help with the transition. We would highly recommend Rescue Me to anyone looking to adopt a pet or looking to place a pet for adoption.

     We are so happy for Harrison Ford! This little boy started his life at a dump in Mexico with his Mom and three other siblings. He was so sick when he came to my rescue as was one of his sisters who did not make it. He was named Harrison first of all because he was just as handsome, but also because he overcame so many hardships and dangers in his young life. He deserved the honor of being a little Indiana Jones. Harrison had two previous adoptions that failed. One was too busy for him and the other had problems potty training. His other dog only took two days to potty train. Harrison Ford says, 'Heck, that boy was a breeder's spoiled brat... How was I supposed to know you don't just go when you gotta go? The dump didn't mind. Then I was placed here on Rescue Me and my rescuer met with my new mom and dad. They love me to pieces, and I'm very good for them, so I go potty outside. They actually knew how to show me the right way and didn't even have to speak Spanish! Thank you Jeff Gold for having an awesome place to share all of us deserving dogs out there!'

     Sadie went to his new home yesterday afternoon. I was sad to see him go, but I feel it's for the best. Rescue Me helped him find a new family. One that can better care for him than me. For that I am grateful.

     George had been speaking with me for a few weeks as the weather got bad. It was so cold, I had to wait till days were warmer to show Dandy and Rudy (which was not even posted yet). One day it was nice and 77 degrees here, so he came out and meet Dandy and Rudy and said he liked both of them. He wanted company for each other while he was at work, Both dogs were EU LISTED, and poor Dandy and Rudy both had dental issues and needed teeth pulled. George did not seem to care that both had several teeth pulled. They both loved him and went to him right away. He stayed for over an hour and both dogs just keep going to him to be petted. Dandy had a showing before this one, and growled and snapped at another man. You know dogs know who is good from people are bad. With that, both were adopted. Both dogs are about five to six years old. I am going to miss my baby, Dandy, as he was here almost a year before he found an adopter, Thank you, Rescue Me and George, for finding these two dogs homes that would have been EU if this site and good adopters did not come to make them part of their family.

     Bub found his new home. I'm very happy. He's a good dog, and deserves the time and patient attention I believe he'll receive. Rescue Me provided a safe, free way to post Bub, and get the word out to people seeking dogs to adopt.

     When I posted Lolly-pop on Rescue Me and they said that I would probably start receiving messages from interested people within a day I said Pshhhh! But I did! Lolly was only online for a few days before she was able to go to a new amazing Mommy. I couldn't be happier with Lolly's new situation. Lolly's mommy sends me pictures and updates. She asked if we could do a 'open adoption', where I could see Lolly on holidays. I am so grateful for Rescue Me for helping us find each other. Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I had so many people wanting to adopt her. I saved her from being euthanized and paid to have her transported. I then had her fully vetted, never make a dime, just for the love of the dogs. My Rescue Me post stated, 'must have fenced yard'. She was the type to run off and I had to make sure she had the right home with a fence and a kid. She LOVES KIDS. Finally, the perfect home came to her after two months. She was looking for a Chi for her son. She had a fenced in yard, and another playmate for her to play with, which was all too good. When we met them, Missy ran right up to the little boy who is eight years old and she did not leave his side. Danny was in love with her. It was a big win for Missy! She found that perfect forever home. Thanks to the adopters and thanks to Jeff Gold for this fabulous site helping to find the dogs in need good homes. HAPPY TAILS, MISSY!

     So many wonderful people responded so quickly. Thank you Rescue Me. I am blessed there are so many good dog lovers out there. Thank you all for responding. Gizmo was adopted by a great, caring and loving couple. It broke my heart to see him go after 11 years, but I saw him happy and being with a new family. I will always remember today and I am thankful for Rescue Me!

     Ivy, now Lola is a perfect little girl. The couple, who had her prior to me did a wonderful job raising her and giving her lots of love, but their living situation was such that they no longer could keep her. So, I ended up adopting Lola. Today is day four and she's adjusting really well! Thank you, Rescue Me!

     I adopted a tiny Chi-Weenie puppy through Rescue Me and everything went nice and smooth. They ask questions that I would want answers to myself if roles were reversed. I know that I have many years to look forward to with my puppy but when the time comes I will use Rescue Me again and will recommend the site to friends and family. Thank you Rescue Me!

     I love this website. Regularly, I find strays and foster them until they are healthy and happy. My 'go-to' website is Rescue Me. Both dogs I posted in 2015 were adopted out within 10 days or less to great homes. I am still getting updates from their new families. I tell everyone looking to adopt or looking for a home for a pet to use this site. Keep up the good work.

     Buddy was adopted by a fabulous couple who had three other little Chihuahuas that had also been adopted from our Humane Society.

     Oreo went to a great home with a stay at home wife who just wanted a 'fur baby' to keep her company. She has the time to give him that he so deserves. We miss him, but are happy that he is in the right place for him now. It took me a year to find the right fit for him, but that was at no fault of Rescue Me, that was me doing some heavy screening of folks who inquired about him. Thank you Rescue Me! You're an amazing resource!

     I want to thank Rescue Me for the wonderful work they do to help dogs find forever homes and helping us humans to find forever furbaby companions. We lost our Gizmo and have not been able to find him. We are still looking for him and have placed flyers, posted notices on many web pages, had Dogs Finding Dogs out tracking for him, among other things. During this time, I joined Rescue Me and thought about adopting. I thought someone either had taken our Gizmo or someone found him and wanted to keep him for their own. The first time I saw the picture of JD (sometime after midnight) that Ericka posted, I fell in love with him and immediately sent her an email. We spoke later that day after playing phone tag a few times. From the moment we starting talking it just felt right, we had a lot of things in common. My Gizmo and their JD did a lot of the same things and even his name we all had in common. Once we meet Ericka, her husband, Al, and JD at our home yesterday, it was as if they had brought Gizmo home. OMG, they are a beautiful couple who are expecting twins and JD is just as lovable and playful as can be. He has made himself right at home, lives to give kisses, especially this morning, and loves playing with his toys. And he just loved sleeping in the bed with his new daddy last night. Thank you again, Ericka, Al, and Rescue Me!

     Rescue Me did an amazing job with helping us find a furever home for Max. We are so thankful. We began receiving emails and phone calls almost immediately after posting him, and we were able to weigh our options. We eventually choose a family that is going to love Max like crazy and spoil the heck out of him. Very happy with every part of this process.

     Piper came from a rescue for older dogs. We weren't looking for another family member, but there she was! I was originally told Piper had been adopted. Two days later, I found she had been returned to the rescue. It was just meant to be. I think she was just waiting for me. She fits in beautifully with our three other Chi's. The rescue was wonderful! This is our third Chihuahua from Rescue Me! What a great site!

     Jester came off EU list and was about to be put down for being a biter. With time and love, he was showing much improvement. He is only a pup of about 10 months old. He loved my grandson instantly, learned to go potty outside, sleep in my bed, and give lots of kisses. I decided it was time to post on Rescue Me to find that special forever home. The first call came within a few hours and was a match for him. They have a Chi Papillion mix also with the other side of face with the black patch over the eye. They look so much alike! With time, he will learn to love and trust and have a BLAST with his new sister in their fenced yard. Thanks so much, Dale and Vicki, for giving Jester a chance for a happy life. And thank you, Rescue Me, for such a wonderful site to help find these dogs so in need a forever home.

     My father passed away in August and my mother was left with the reality of living on a social security check. She is moving in with my family, but I can not take her dogs. Maximo is in his twilight years and in need of special care for his arthritis, incontinence, and bad teeth. My mother thought is best to put him down and I said 'no way!' He deserves to live out his life too. Rescue Me helped us find a great home for him quickly and reliably. Thanks!

     My little Rosco needed a stable, no-children home. With a newborn recently added to our family, I knew I needed to get him re-homed/adopted quickly before the winter set in. Luckily, I found the Rescue Me website, posted Rosco, and in less than 24hrs of posting, a wonderful angel named Sarah called me to inquire about adopting Rosco! Hours later that afternoon, they met, he went home with his new mommy... and the rest is history. He is happy, loved and number one in her and her husbands life. She can provide him the love, care & personal attention that I unfortunately cannot give him right now. Thank you to Rescue Me for helping us cross paths with a wonderful animal lover who will give Rosco the quality of life he deserves!

     I adopted Pudge using the Rescue Me site only six days ago. I loved being able to see a photo of the dog and the description provided of their features/characteristics and other behaviors. The description was spot on and it was such a quick process, from the moment I viewed Pudges profile, inquired about her, was given a response and applied for the adoption. Pudge's foster mom was very helpful in answering my questions about Pudge. Pudge has been a wonderful addition to my family and my other two pups love her. Each and every dog deserves a forever home and what they offer their humans is so much more than money can buy!!! Thank you.

     Thank you, Rescue Me. Joanne and Chris adopted two dogs I saved from kill shelters. They said they would foster Minnie because she was so shy. I thought they could help her overcome this. They've had her a month now and she is getting better, but she must have been through some drama. She was on the EU list to be put down, until I had her pulled. Thank God for good people like them! They told me they just want to adopt her to be able to keep showing her love and attention and help her overcome her fear. Thanks so much Joanne and Chris for giving her a chance to be with such wonderful people and live out a happy life!
