Colin is an adorable, low-maintenance little guy who looks just like a tiny deer. He has a beautiful coat and markings, and when he lays in the sun, he just seems to glow. He is a bit shy initially with strangers, and will stand back for a few minutes to assess new friends, then approach them.
Once he gets to know you, he is a happy, outgoing, lovable little guy. He'll show you, too, with a wagging tail that won't stop! When you pet his foster brothers and sisters, he'll run in and sneak some kisses on your hand and then dance away like he just won some sort of doggie game. He loves his people, and follows his foster mom everywhere. If there's attention to be had, he dances all around making sure he gets his fair share! To see a video of Colin in action, check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yb1N3Ee7k0s.
Colin gets along great with other little dogs and loves to play with his brother and sister Chihuahuas. His favorite thing to do is tumble around on the floor with them. If Chihuahuas are ready to play, you'll find Colin in the middle of the pile loving life! If nobody's lap is available, you'll find him in the doggie bed with his other siblings. It is a precious sight to see when he is curled up cuddling with his buddies. While Colin obviously enjoys his canine companions, it is his people who are his top priority!! He loves going for walks on a leash, so, if you like to walk, he would love to be your walking companion, but he's good at lap-warming, too. If you are looking for a fun, laid-back little guy who will always be there for you with a wagging tail and a lot of love, please fill out an application to meet Colin today!
Colin is neutered, micro chipped, up-to-date on shots, HW negative and on heartworm prevention. He is ready to join a loving family - could you be his perfect home?

Rescue Group Info...
CRT does not warehouse dogs in a shelter. As in most rescue groups, our dogs are cared for in healthy, safe, loving foster home environments. CRT foster parents work very hard to be sure that their foster dog feels safe and loved while working on housetraining, crate training, socialization, etc. All our dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, fecal tested, microchipped, on heartworm preventative and have all other veterinary needs taken care of (such as heartworm treatment, dentals, luxating patellas, etc.) CRT is known, and has always been known, for taking the injured, infirm and elderly Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. Please consider the adoption of one of these dogs as well. Seniors and special needs dogs make great pets too!
CRT hold various opportunities to meet the dogs looking for homes in our group. These locations, times, and places are listed on our website: www.chihuahua-rescue.org.
CRT accepts applications, checks references and requires a home visit. An adoption donation is requested. CRT does not have a shelter and all dogs are fostered in the private homes of our volunteers. Once an application is submitted the foster of the dog inquired about will contact the potential adopter to answer any questions about the dog.
