Facts about Joanie

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 77896

Joanie lived her life in a barn as a backyard hoarders breeding dog. She arrived with a large umbilical hernia, very very long nails, and a mouth full of rotten teeth. She was immediately sweet, loving and wanting to be held and loved on. She loves giving kisses, and is so food motivate she may end up in your dinner plate helping herself. She is working on house training, keeps a clean crate, and uses a potty pad currently. Joanie would love a quiet home, with or without another small doggy friend. She would make a great lap dog for a single older person or couple. Joanie is fine being home all day alone, she will just sleep curled up and eat a snack or two. She is good with dogs and cats, is fine with humans of all sorts but because of her size and being a little skittish she would do best with school aged calm children and older, or no children at all. She is not aggressive, she doesn't bite or nip. She is just sweetness! Would you like to add this purebred baby to your family? is the first step. Your dogs must be current on shots, hw and flea preventative year round, and be spayed/neutered unless you have a veterinarian able to verify that there is a medical reason to not do these things. Your dogs also must be indoor pets. We require references, a home check, and for you to come to pick up your pet in Normal IL. Her adoption fee is $275 and she has had a complete dental, grooming, nails, all vaccines, spayed, umbilical hernia repair, heart worm and fecal tested, microchipped, and flea/heartworm preventative applied monthly.

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website.

You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
