Papi is a sweet old guy of 14 years. You wouldn't know by watching him though, he is still active and likes to follow you around and play fetch with his toys. He is a wonderful companion dog. He is a tiny 5 pound Chihuahua Mixed with maybe a Pomeranian. He has short thick white hair like a husky. Papi was turned into the rescue 5 years ago because all of the sudden his family became allergic to him after having him for 9 years. Not sure what the real story was but it didn't have to do with behavioral issues that's for sure. He is an awesome little guy and very well mannered. He is just chill and likes to hang out.  He loves to go for walks with you and gets very excited when he sees the leash. He just loves adventures and car rides. He is pretty lazy the rest of the time and loves multiple naps through the day, and you will constantly find him napping in a warm snuggly blanket. He is pretty good with the potty training as long as you give him frequent visits. He has a tiny little bladder. He gets along with cats and knows to leave them alone. He got adopted out and spent the last 5 years with a wonderful family and another younger Chihuahua. His new family was unable to care for him or his adopted brother and turned them both in to find another home.  Papi and his brother Rocky get along ok but really Papi would prefer not to be bothered by other dogs and of course spoiled rotten.  He is looking for a quiet home, older kids are fine, he is very social with people. He adores little kids and could visit with him, but not live with him all the time because they can be a little rough and he is very small and elderly. When he got returned this last time we did another dental on him and removed his remaining bad teeth. He is toothless now but that does not stop him from eating dry food with his can, and also chewy treats. He is such a sweet little guy who seems to have many good years left in him. If you think you might be the right match for this happy old man please call Jen #623-210-6578.

About Little Rascals Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are mostly a medical rescue because the Owner is a Surgical Vet Tech and loves the underdogs. We mostly pull from shelters or intake from the veterinary clinics those animals the other rescues don't want. We always have plenty of highly adoptable healthy animals, but specialize in extreme medical cases and seniors. We believe an animal should not be left behind due to medical issues. Being a foster based sanctuary allows us to house these cases in a home environment to promote good healing and reduce stress on the pet.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do adoption events on weekends. You can call Jen to see where we will be next #623-210-6578 or go to our facebook page to see upcoming events and locations.

Our Adoption Process...

We believe in the match. Please call us to have a personal consult about what you are looking for. We are foster based so know what our animals are looking for as well. All pets are Spayed/Neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and health checked. Our fees range depending upon the animal you are interested in. Puppies of course are a higher donation to help fund our medical cases. Some adoptions are also free depending upon the circumstance.
