Facts about Maggie and Junior

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Have room in your life for a sweet six-pound Chihuahua that loves to be in your arms or on your lap? How about two? Maggie, a ten-year-old tri-coloured Chi, and Junior, her five-year-old tan-and-white son, have been together as long as Junior has been alive. They sleep, eat, cuddle, play, go outside, and come inside together. We're hoping to find a loving home that will take in both of them, so this pair can continue to enjoy each other's companionship.

Maggie is a very friendly, easygoing girl who is happy to meet anyone and is very generous with doggie kisses. She likes to be carried around and cuddled and will paw at your legs to be picked up. Junior is more shy and cautious than his mom and needs time to approach new people, but is quite a snuggly little guy once he trusts you. He's particularly fond of tummy rubs (although at his size, they're more like tummy scratches!) and likes to lay his head against you when he's relaxing.

Both of them are low-key types who prefer cuddle time to action, and would be perfect for someone who is the same. Like typical Chihuahuas, they love to be warm and cozy, and will often seek out a fireplace, the sunny spot in the room, or a thick blanket where they can bury themselves. They will play with each other for short bursts and like to roam around the backyard when the weather is nice. So far, they don't seem to understand the purpose of toys, although Maggie is starting to show a little interest in squeakies (Junior is nervous about them). They're just starting to be introduced to walking on a leash and harness, and can do without regular walks if they have other activity.

The two are well-behaved and easy to live with in their foster home. They're very comfortable being crated, and good in the car either in their crate or held in someone's lap. They're housebroken, although they're best let out every few hours. Maggie is typically friendly with other dogs, while Junior may be wary and barky. The two have not been exposed to cats.

Maggie and Junior have both been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm-tested and microchipped. They've had dental work, as their teeth were in bad shape. Maggie now has few teeth left, and is fed soft food. They're otherwise in good health, and ready for adoption.

These two are available as a pair only through Grand River All Breed Animal Rescue. The adoption donation is $500 for both dogs. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested. You can also reach us by email at

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
