** Be sure to watch Sauve' video's below**  If you’ve been looking for a very young, pretty, small, sweet, blonde Chihuahua that you must dress up at all times, Sauve’ might be the one for you. She’s only 9 lbs. & the minute you take her outside she starts to shiver, she is very cold sensitive  --- so if you love dressing up a little dog I think she’ll be perfect. Sauve’ would love to be adopted into a family that has time to spend with her & no small children, she’s too small. As it is with her breed, she is very bossy with other dogs no matter what their size! She seems very opinionated & needs to give them a piece of her mind. I think she's saying 'Look I'm really tiny, only 9lbs so just be careful that you don't step on me!!' After that she loves to play with everyone

Sauve’ was named by a friend & her name means “rescued” in French and she really was. She found herself in a high kill shelter in KY owner surrendered. They simply didn’t want her anymore. Can’t explain why people do the things they do when it comes to giving up animals as if they are an old pair of shoes. She was afraid of everything – you can see the photo below when she was in the Vet’s office in KY. Her ears are pinned due to fear. After only a week in a foster home you can see her ears have perked up. She is perfectly normal little dog now that she isn’t afraid anymore.

We have a policy of not adopting young dogs like her to anyone 62 & up. Small dogs like Sauve’ have a lifespan without any medical issues down the road of 12-15 years. We sincerely believe that Senior Citizens should adopt more mature dogs say 3 years & up.

About LnF Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

LnF Dog Rescue is a small foster based dog rescue that saves sheltered or abandoned dogs.

We are not a shelter, we rescue puppies/dogs from shelters. Our dogs are selected based on having gentle, sweet, & loving temperaments. They are socialized in our foster homes until they are ready to be adopted.

For complete details about our rescue & our dogs visit our website at

Come Meet Our Pets...

Since all of our pups/dogs are in foster care, we do require a pre-approved adoption application prior to meeting them in person.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our adoption fees and policies are listed at our website:

LnF Dog Rescue

All pups/dogs are already spayed/neutered, live in foster homes, are housebroken, crate-trained, up-to-date with all shots, & microchipped & have 30 days of FREE Pet Insurance.

Most importantly they all have sweet & gentle dispositions & get along with other dogs.

You must have current vet references & must have raised a dog or pup as an adult.

~ We require experienced pet owners only unless the dog is listed as "suitable for first time pet guardian" ~

~ A fence is always mandatory and must be installed.
We will not consider any applications that do not have an installed fence.

We do NOT accept ANY type of electric or underground fence. *** There are no exceptions ***

We only accept a physical fence 4 foot or higher. Some dogs require a higher fence & that is noted in their profile.

If you are interested in a certain pup/dog, please read each profile to be sure the pup/dog matches your lifestyle. Our strict adoption requirements are based on our years of experience & unless you can meet our minimal adoption requirements .... you will not be approved.

These are not *suggestions* that we will negotiate, these are our requirements to adopt from LnF Dog Rescue.
