Facts about Pearl

  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
It’s time to put our Sweet Pearl back up for adoption. Some of you may have read that we thought Pearl was spayed because she had a scar on her tummy but then she came into heat and starting gaining weight in an odd manner. Turned out she had pyometra and the vet removed a 1.7 lb uterus from her. She is gaining weight slowly and still a little skinny but due to being a senior it will take her a while. But she needs a home of her very own.

You may remember that Pearl is about 12 years old, deaf and has one tooth left. She is a very happy girl who does not like being confined in a crate or a pen but will happily use a doggie door and potty pads. She insists on cuddling up with other dogs and some dogs are not in agreement with that so she either needs to be the only dog or with a very patient docile dog who will not mind her squishing up to them to keep warm. If provoked she will fight back. Therefore, absolutely no big dogs for her safety. Pearl also loves to sunbathe so a yard is essential.

Pearl loves all people and children and she loves to be held and cuddled. She is a very precious girl and deserves a special home with someone who will love and care for her in her senior years. Pearl has had a blood panel run on her and she is healthy with no heart murmur. She is not on any medications. She is spayed, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. 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.
