My name is Selena. I am a very cute brown and tan Chihuahua mix, my foster mom says she thinks I am mixed with dachshund. I am already spayed. I’m also current on my vaccines. I came from a hoarding situation and was taken to PACC where I was very scared. I was kenneled with three of my sisters, after two of my sisters were adopted my foster mom decided I needed a place to be comfortable. I was scared with all the dogs barking and so many people walking by, especially since I had just been taken from my home. I’m still a little unsure of my foster home, but my foster siblings have been nice and shared their bones and toys. I like to play with my foster siblings, but am not sure how to play. I am learning to play. I am not sure I want a cat sibling, I like to chase them while barking. I like to follow my foster mom around where ever she goes. I am still unsure of being petted when you walk towards me, but have come so far in such a short time my foster mom thinks I will be an outgoing social butterfly soon!!! If you sit down I will come lay next to you and roll over for belly rubs. I really like belly rubs!!! I have convinced my foster mom to let me sleep in bed under the covers with her. My foster mom is so excited because I am potty trained! I go outside and if she isn’t home and I really need to go I will use the puppy pads. My foster mom is still getting to know me and will let you know more about me when she knows. My foster mom thinks I need someone with some patience, but is sure when I find my forever home it won’t take long for me to settle in and bond. I think I would like a brother or sister and wouldn’t mind older children who understand I need some time to warm up to them. Please email Kendall ( for information on how to adopt Selena or visit

About AZ Chihuahua Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

AZ Chihuahua Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization. Our network consists of experienced rescue people who were previously doing rescue independently and realize the benefits of joining together and combining resources.

We believe there is a home for every dog we foster. Some just take a little longer to find. Most dogs spend at least a short time in foster care so we can evaluate their behaviors in a home setting. We can give potential adopters information on how the dog may interact with cats, children, men, women, other dogs, and so on. These are vital components to a good match. We also try to improve potty training skills if they are not already house trained. Our foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our dogs for life in a world where fear and starvation are non-existent.

Our Purpose

To rescue, rehabilitate and place chihuahuas into stable, loving homes

To educate the public about the responsibilities of chihuahua ownership in an attempt to alleviate the problem of unwanted pets

To build public awareness about the human-animal bond and its benefits to society

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Policy and Fees


Our Adoption Policy at AZCR requires all potential adopters to complete an application and interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our dogs. AZCR will determine the best home for each dog based on the application process and interview. The application and/or interview does not guarantee an approval. It also does not guarantee the adoption of a particular dog you may be interested in. AZCR may recommend a different dog more suitable to your household. AZCR is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the dog based on our policies and standards.



Why do you charge to adopt a rescue

When AZ Chihuahua Rescue (AZCR) takes in a dog, we incur some veterinary costs. Sometimes, the cost is minimal. However, there are several dogs we have taken in with significant medical needs. In some cases, we may take in more money on one dog which will help offset the higher medical expenses on another dog. (See our
"featured chihuahua" link to read about one of our medical needs dogs.) Reality is that in many cases, without additional donations from the public and our volunteers, we still would not be able to cover some of the medical expenses AZCR has incurred.
