Facts about Pearl

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Pearl is an incredibly sweet and loving girl who found herself at the shelter at 12 years old. She is deaf and has one tooth. You will not find a more loving, loyal dog who just wants to lay in your lap. She has quite the personality as well. She probably weighs between 6 and 7 lbs. It’s possible she is a Chi mixed with Min Pin but we really don’t know. We just know she is very endearing.

Her hearing does cause her a few problems. She tends to back up and sit on the other dogs in their doggie beds. This irritates them and when they growl she can’t hear them. Then they get mad and snap at her and a little fight breaks out because Pearl doesn’t know what happened. For this reason we think it would be best if Pearl goes into a home with a male dog or by herself. It doesn’t usually happen with the male does in the home just the females.

Pearl also does not like to be crated or penned up. She will bite on the bars until her gums bleed. At her foster home she has free roam of the house with a doggie door. She is very well behaved and always uses the bathroom outside. She does occasionally play with one of the younger males here as well. She’s not just an old lady bump on a log. She loves sunbathing as well, so she needs a yard so her final years can be spent doing what she loves.

All of Pearl’s blood panels came out great. She is healthy on the inside and no heart murmur. She would make a wonderful companion for a senior or someone just wanting a loveable dog who will be devoted to them. She is more than precious. Her tongue hangs out the side of her mouth which is so adorable. Please consider opening your heart and your home to this senior gal.

Pearl is spayed, microchipped, UTD on vaccines, heartworm negative and started on heartworm prevention, and she has had a full blood panel. Pearl had some open fistulas repaired in her mouth as well as one tooth removed. Her adoption fee is $100 and $50 for seniors 65 and over.

About Chihuahua Rescue and Rehab

About Our Rescue Group...

CR&R was developed due to the overwhelming overpopulation of Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes in our county shelters. Many never even make it to the adoption floor because of shelter over crowding of the breed. Chihuahuas are currently the #2 breed being euthanized in our shelters today.

Additionally, the cost to get these small dogs ready for adoption is astronomical. Blood panels for seniors, dentals on nearly 75% of the dogs along with the normal spay/neuter and vaccines.

The Director of CR&R is a Chihuahua lover herself and previously ran an all breed rescue but retired. But the fate of these wonderful dogs brought her back into the rescue world to try and make a difference.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoption events are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month in Vacaville at PetSmart in the Nut Tree Plaza from 11am to 2pm. Located at 1621 E. Monte Vista Ave.

Please bring the entire family and your dogs to meet the dog you are interested in and make a day of it. The Nut Tree Plaza is a fun place to visit.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in our adoption process is completing an on-line adoption application by going to our website at We do not show our dogs without it. Once your application is approved we will contact you to set up a meeting for your family and any other dogs in the home to meet the dog you are interested in. If all goes well and it seems to be the right match for you and the dog then we will set up arrangements to do a home visit and then the adoption of the dog. Our home visits are not to further interrogate you but to make sure that your yard is safe and you are ready to bring a little dog into your home. Many people over look small little holes that tiny Chihuahuas can get out of. We want to help you prepare for your new family member and make the transition as smooth as possible. Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $175-$200 for puppies unless otherwise noted.
