Skeeter is approximately 5 years old and due to an illness with his adopter he has found his way back into the rescue. Skeeter is a kisser and loves to give kisses all day! He loves to play with his toys - he is good with other dogs and he just wants to be the center of your world. Chihuahua Rescue says: Skeeter was in a home for three years along with Chico, Unfortunately his person became ill and it necessitated Skeeter, Chico and another pet being rehomed. Skeeter is challenging when it comes to his house training, but not impossible, his foster has been doing a great job with him. Skeeter has been on a terrific food, he is also very sweet and did I mention he loves to give kisses? He weighs about 11#. Skeeter is listed as special needs 'only' because he is a bit of a challenge when it comes to his house breaking - and because of that Skeeter is let outside every 2-3 hours or will need to be walked frequently until his house breaking is complete. Skeeter would do best in a home with much older children he doesn't like to be pulled/tugged on although the foster mom works with his daily to relieve his sensitivity to this. Skeeter would also do better in a household with 1 no more than 2 other trained dogs. Skeeter loves to lay on your chest and wait for just the right moment to sneak attack you with kisses! Skeeter's adoption fee is $200.00 ( he came into the rescue with his housemate Chico(also up for adoption) so if you'd like to adopt both of these sweet little guys the adoption fee for BOTH is $350.00.

About Chihuahua Rescue Indiana- Indianapolis Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. is a non profit, all volunteer rescue working with Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. The pets are housed in individual volunteer foster homes, not kennels or shelters until they are adopted permanently. We get to know our animals and therefore can tell the potential adopter what the traits of the animal are and what home would be the best for the pet. We are dedicated to the adoption, education, rescue and transportation of the Chihuahua breed. We believe that every Chihuahua deserves a loving home.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Donations are up to the individual and are made to a not for profit organization.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at local Petsmarts, Pet Supply Plus, and Petcos. The dates are fluid and they do coincide with the nationally advertised adoption events at the locales.

Our Adoption Process...

**If you are unable to pay the adoption fee, we are unable to place a dog in your care. Being unable to meet the financial obligations of pet care (recurrent or emergent) is one of many reasons why so many of these pets end up in rescue. It's not lack of love.**
We require an adoption inquiry, and then we will check references. We also check with vets. If the person is not LOCAL then we will partner with a local animal control or Humane Society to do a home visit and give us the go ahead to adopt.
There are adoption fees associated with the costs of veterinary care of the pet. We require an adoption contract to be signed to finalize the adoption process and we have an agreement that all our pets are to be Chihuahua Rescue Indiana Inc. pets for LIFE. In other words, in the event that they can not stay in their adoptive home they are not to be surrendered to another individual or rescue.
