Facts about Miss Lily

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
I, her foster Mom, am proud to present our sweet girl, Miss Lily. She was adopted to a family some months back who recently returned her to the rescue. They said that she was being returned because (1) she does not like to travel and (2) she goes after the pant legs of men-from behind. Since she has been with me she has traveled in the car to and from the vet's office on several occasions with no problem whatsoever. She does however want to go after mens pant legs-from behind. We are working on that with her and she will stop her pursuit with a correction from me. Miss Lily is well housetrained, she sleeps in her kennel overnight with no problems, she knows the command "sit", she is very affectionate with me, loves to give kisses and gets along fairly well with the other dogs in the household. She does aspire to be the dominate dog but we are also working on that and she is coming along. She could do okay with another dog but would probably do best as the only dog. Lily is about 2 1/2 years old. Miss Lily tested negative for heartworm and is on heartworm preventive meds. She had some seizures while with her previous owner and she is on medication to control those. Miss Lily tested negative for Valley and Tick Fevers so the vet feels she is epileptic and will likely need to remain on seizure control meds for the remainder of her life. Please email Barb ( for information on how to adopt Miss Lily.

About AZ Chihuahua Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

AZ Chihuahua Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization. Our network consists of experienced rescue people who were previously doing rescue independently and realize the benefits of joining together and combining resources.

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.

Our Purpose

To rescue, rehabilitate and place chihuahuas into stable, loving homes

To educate the public about the responsibilities of chihuahua ownership in an attempt to alleviate the problem of unwanted pets

To build public awareness about the human-animal bond and its benefits to society

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption 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.
