My StoryDoodles DOB is 10/1/2010 and she weighs about 8 lbs. She is a long legged Chihuahua brown in color and sweet as can be. Her nickname is Dobie because she will stand on her back legs and she looks like the house elf in the Harry Potter movies. Doodles is house, crate and doggie door trained. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and has a microchip. She will be a wonderful addition to a family. Doodles does have seizures and is currently taking daily medication to help her with them. They seem to be caused by stress and she would do best in a calm environment. Please email Jo Ann (email@example.com) for information on how to adopt Doodles or visit www.azchihuahuarescue.org

Adoption ProcessAdoption Policy and Fees
Our Adoption Policy at AZCR requires all potential adopters to complete an application and interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our dogs. AZCR will determine the best home for each dog based on the application process and interview. The application and/or interview does not guarantee an approval. It also does not guarantee the adoption of a particular dog you may be interested in. AZCR may recommend a different dog more suitable to your household. AZCR is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the dog based on our policies and standards.
Why do you charge to adopt a rescue
When AZ Chihuahua Rescue (AZCR) takes in a dog, we incur some veterinary costs. Sometimes, the cost is minimal. However, there are several dogs we have taken in with significant medical needs. In some cases, we may take in more money on one dog which will help offset the higher medical expenses on another dog. (See our
"featured chihuahua" link to read about one of our medical needs dogs.) Reality is that in many cases, without additional donations from the public and our volunteers, we still would not be able to cover some of the medical expenses AZCR has incurred.

About the Rescue Group
We believe there is a home for every dog we foster. Some just take a little longer to find. Most dogs spend at least a short time in foster care so we can evaluate their behaviors in a home setting. We can give potential adopters information on how the dog may interact with cats, children, men, women, other dogs, and so on. These are vital components to a good match. We also try to improve potty training skills if they are not already house trained. Our foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our dogs for life in a world where fear and starvation are non-existent.
