Amigo's Story...
Amigo is an adorable, loyal and loving, five-year-old, six-pound, male Chihuahua looking for a loving guardian. Amigo was rescued from a shelter in Kentucky. He was given up by a hoarder who realized he couldn’t afford to care for his dozens of Chihuahuas. Amigo can be a little stand-offish with people at first, but he warms up quickly. In fact, food is the way to his heart. Amigo is often terrified when new people come to the home. He hides under the table, but can be coaxed out with a treat. He will even dance on his hind legs for treats. He loves going for walks – even in Chicago’s cold winter. He loves to snuggle with his people and dog friends. He's well-behaved in his foster home, knows how to sit on command, and is crate-trained and mostly housebroken. Amigo loves to cuddle under the covers with his foster mom. He’s a good sleeper and doesn’t budge all night. Amigo does well with other dogs - large and small, but he can be a little intimidated by larger dogs at first, but he loves smaller dogs, especially other Chihuahuas. He is quiet in the home and not much of a barker, so he'd do fine in an apartment or condo. Amigo will be a great companion in a quiet home with a patient dog lover. To meet and possibly adopt Amigo, please contact his foster mom Samantha at or 773-615-9864. His adoption fee of $100 benefits the rescued dogs of Pal’s Place. He is healthy, neutered, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested, and on monthly heartworm preventative. He even had his teeth cleaned.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Amigo, a Chicago Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Chihuahua breeders who help with Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
