Facts about Tina

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
I want to be loved by you!!! The oh-so-pretty Tina is looking for her happily ever after! This adorable Tri-Color Chihuahua girl is approximately 6 years old and 6 pounds.  Dumped at a shelter with her son by their owner, Tina was left heartbroken and not doing well at the shelter.  She bared teeth from fear and was labeled aggressive.  When her son was adopted it was heartbreak on top of the betrayal by her person. Tina quickly acclimated and has thrived in her foster home. She may be a bit slow to warm up to her new person, but she bonds quickly and once she does she will love you with her whole heart. 

Tina is lap possessive and will growl at some strangers when they approach while her person is holding her.  Her foster mom is working at training her on these issues, but we feel Tina would benefit greatly from being an only dog and may do well with another very gentle-natured dog.  She does enjoy canine companionship but is selective.  Tina just loves her foster sister, Goldie and romps with her, but is growly with others. (She is not lap possessive with the dogs she likes.) With Tina’s petite size she needs an adult only/mature older child home and would do very well with a retired or work-at-home family who has snuggle time to share. 

Tina loves to go with her people too. She gets very excited when she sees the harness come out so her wish is a family that will take her along when going on outings and adventures. Tina is very vocal when she is when she is happy as well as when she is distressed but otherwise quiet. She is a good guard dog who will alert you to outsiders but otherwise not a big barker. She is an adorable and fun girl.  

Tina walks like a crab with her bowed back legs. This is from being born with a severe lusting patella. This does not stop this sweet girl from twirling and dancing for her favorite people! She dances when it is time to eat, time to go somewhere or just whenever her favorite person walks in the door.  Tina will be a very loyal and adoring companion.

Tina will need a home where she can sleep with her favorite person. Tina has been spayed, microchipped and is current on vaccinations. Tina's previous owner said she was not at all potty trained, but she is already potty pad trained. She is a very smart girl and has learned from the others. She is also doing very well with outside training.

Our Adoption Process...

AFCHS is a non-sheltered humane society organization modeled after some of the more progressive humane societies. We do not believe any home is better than no home, but instead, work to find the right home for each specific animal.
If you are interested in adopting an animal, please fill out and submit the adoption questionnaire or call 209-368-1761 or 209-365-0535. ALL of the fields on the application MUST be filled out or the application will not send, if this happens your time will have been lost. If you are having trouble filling out the on-line application we can email you a copy to fill out. You can also copy the application and paste it into a word document, fill it out and then send it to us at please call us afternoons at 209-368-1761 or 209-365-0535
Filling out a questionnaire is not a commitment to adopt. It does help us determine if the dog or cat you inquire about is suitable for your home and to suggest others not yet on our site.
While we have some dogs and cats at our Sanctuary most of them are in foster care or rescue homes. An application must be completed before an appointment can be set to meet them.
