Hi! My name is Tinkerbell and I am a great dog! I love to be next to my human. I like being petted, of course, but I am content just to sit or lie next to you whatever you are doing. I also love to play fetch. I put my own twist on it, and can be pretty funny about it according to my foster mom. Like most rescue dogs, I have a past where folks weren’t so nice to me. I warm up to women pretty quickly, but I don't like men so much at first; Chihuahua Rescue thinks a man was mean to me in the past. I will warm up eventually, but you will have to go slow and earn my trust. When I don't feel good or I am nervous and scared, I can be a little grumpy and nippy. Are you the right person to be my special human?

Chihuahua Rescue says: Tinkerbell weighs 8.4 lbs now and is ~7 years old. She is crate trained; totally house-trained, both to outside and to puppy pads; loves car rides, and walks on a leash. She'd do really well in a calm home with maybe one or two other dogs. She gets on well with other small dogs and cats, but is not a fan of a dog who's in her face. Older kids or teens would be fine, but she'd probably not enjoy kids under 8 years old. Tinkerbell was ~1-1.5 lbs over weight when she came to us, but a measured amount of good food and lots of exercise helped her regain her slimmer figure! Her adoption fee is $250 (Seniors for Seniors $200).

About Chihuahua Rescue Indiana- Indianapolis Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. is a non profit, all volunteer rescue working with Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. The pets are housed in individual volunteer foster homes, not kennels or shelters until they are adopted permanently. We get to know our animals and therefore can tell the potential adopter what the traits of the animal are and what home would be the best for the pet. We are dedicated to the adoption, education, rescue and transportation of the Chihuahua breed. We believe that every Chihuahua deserves a loving home.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Donations are up to the individual and are made to a not for profit organization.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at local Petsmarts, Pet Supply Plus, and Petcos. The dates are fluid and they do coincide with the nationally advertised adoption events at the locales.

Our Adoption Process...

**If you are unable to pay the adoption fee, we are unable to place a dog in your care. Being unable to meet the financial obligations of pet care (recurrent or emergent) is one of many reasons why so many of these pets end up in rescue. It's not lack of love.**
We require an adoption inquiry, and then we will check references. We also check with vets. If the person is not LOCAL then we will partner with a local animal control or Humane Society to do a home visit and give us the go ahead to adopt.
There are adoption fees associated with the costs of veterinary care of the pet. We require an adoption contract to be signed to finalize the adoption process and we have an agreement that all our pets are to be Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. pets for LIFE. In other words, in the event that they can not stay in their adoptive home, they are not to be surrendered to another individual or rescue.
