Hi! My name is Banjo and I am a cute little Chihuahua living in Ohio and loving it.

I am about 4 years old and was adopted by a nice lady who had a major upheaval in her life and with many tears and great regret… she had to give me back to my original foster family.

I'm a soft-haired fella who is great to snuggle in bed with (I sleep under the covers down by your feet), watch TV on the couch with, and go outside for short walks with (as I am a good boy on a leash). My stamina isn't up to par yet so I can only go half-way around the block, but we're working on it. I will walk with anyone who has the leash. (As for kids, at least little girls that are 10 years old on up.)

I might be a little nervous in your home in the beginning, but I am housebroken. I will go as soon as I wake up. I do get a Meaty Bone in the morning after I come in the first time and another one after I come in before we go to bed.

I can't tell you what happened to me (since I cannot speak English), but something happened to the area of my upper legs so you have to pick me up by the middle of my body. The vet does not see this as being a problem at any time further on down the road.

You're looking for a dog, I'm looking for a family… maybe we were "meant to be"? If you think I'm the little guy for you, please fill out an application so I can get my new forever home!

Adoption Donation Fee = $200

If you have any questions please contact my foster home at the link found at Fill out an application if you are interested in adopting me - you can find those at (Email my foster home and let them know you applied so they can be sure the application is received!)

I just can't wait to find a forever home! Thanks!!!


About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small group of friends who all volunteer their personal time and work hard using special talents to make an impact on the life of a dog in need (one at a time). We are experienced in small, long-haired breeds with special focus on the Yorkshire Terrier.

Our volunteers foster out of their homes. We raise funds with members who handcraft doggie items and homebaked doggie treats to sell at area craft fairs and festivals.

We can always use help and support! FOSTER HOMES ARE ALWAYS NEEDED in the Greater Dayton area.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our fosters are in our volunteer's homes and an appointment would be needed to meet the dog.

We do pet events - check the Events calendar on our website at for more information.

You can also visit our website to complete an application to adopt or email us with questions.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt - An application will need to be completed which will include 3 personal references; and, a vet reference (if you have one).

A telephone interview by the foster home and a home visit will be scheduled. Once these are completed the foster home has the final say on the adoptive family.

We match the dog's personality with the family. Every animal is different; some are child friendly - others might not be. Some require fenced-in yards .. others might not. We discourage the use of invisible fences for small breed dogs.

Our fees are based on the age and medical needs of the dog and range from $100 - $400.
