Facts about Emmy

  • Breed: Chihuahua

I am a sweet, petite, well-behaved little girl. My human didn't have the time for me, so I am in a foster home. When I was taken in for my spay, they found out I was pregnant with two puppies, but only one survived and he has since been adopted (yay!) I really didn't want to have any more puppies, as I was being bred up until I was 8 years old. I am a very good mommy though, but no more puppies for this girl.
I had to have all my teeth pulled except for two, so my foster mom feeds me dry food mixed with water and uses her Ninja to grind it up for me so that it's easier for me to eat. I may be able to eat hard food once my mouth heals.
I am potty trained and also trained to go on potty pads.
I love to be on a lap to get some special attention, but I'm also happy to lay in my doggy bed by myself.
I get along okay with other dogs but I can become aggravated with them easily, it may be better to let me be the only dog in your home.
I am an older dog (~12 years) but I have many years left in me to make someone very happy.
I would love to have a permanent home with someone that wants a low-key, happy girl! Could that be you?
Chihuahua Rescue says: Emmy came from backyard breeders that discarded her when she was no longer considered a good "breeder", her mouth was horribly infected and she was pregnant, though we didn't know it when she was spayed. Her little male puppy has been adopted and now Emmy is awaiting the perfect home. Her adoption fee is $250 and we think she is about 11 years old. Her Seniors for Seniors fee is $150.

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.
