Please meet our absolutely awesome dog Elliot. Elliot is a fabulous Chihuahua who is just the sweetest little man. He weighs a little over 4 lbs. and is about 7 years old. His small eye is a congenital birth defect. He cannot see out of it but it does not cause him any harm or issues. He does not know any different since he has lived his entire life this way. We think it is part of his amazing charm.

Elliot is the male dog of our dreams. He came into his foster home unaltered and never marked or peed in the house once. This is unheard of in the rescue world, in fact, I believe he is our very first. He is of course now neutered and still has never had an accident inside. I can’t even say that for my own male dogs. Elliot is crate trained and sleeps in a crate at night. He loves to lay in the sunshine when it’s nice and warm. His favorite activity is cuddling with his person and belly rubs. He loves belly rubs. He is completely potty trained to go outside but has used potty pads.

Elliot is good on the leash and loves to go for walks. He is good with other small dogs but does not play with them. However, he will snuggle up and sleep with them. We have pictures of him sleeping next to both kitties in his foster home. He loves kids and has been around them from ages 3-10. He likes to sit on their laps when they are on the floor but when they get loud he goes into his hiding place. Only calm children are recommended due to his small size. He can be shy around new people but he does let everyone pet him and hold him. He has a very loving nature.

Elliot can sit and lay down on command. He needs a very secure yard as he will find little holes in the fencing to escape. Elliot will not make a good apartment dog as he is a happy barker. He gets so excited that he likes to express his joy. He is just a great all around dog and we are looking for a special home for him because he is a very special boy.

Elliot is neutered, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative and started on heartworm preventative. He has also had a blood panel and a dental in September. His adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in adopting Elliot please complete an application at

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.
