Poochie is a very sweet senior Chihuahua mix. This girl is around 11 years old, possibly younger. She certainly acts younger! Poochie has lots of energy and quickly comes running when you call her name and loves to take walks. She gets very excited at meal times and does a cute little dance. She is very smart and learns quickly.

Poochie is extremely affectionate and loves to curl up on a lap and cuddle every chance she gets. She is crate trained and although she would rather be on your lap, she also likes her crate and will occasionally go in there on her own to take a nap and likes sleeping in her crate at night. Poochie is housetrained and is trained to use the pads as well as eliminate outside.

Poochie does well socially. Poochie is good with cats and other dogs. She enjoys meeting new dogs and loves car rides. Poochie seems to be okay with children that are calm but would probably be most comfortable in a home without really excitable children. Poochie does get lonely quickly so she would also do best in a home with another dog(s) or a home where she does not have to be left alone. Could that be with you?

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
