My story


Age: Senior

Female, spayed

8 lbs

Adoption Fee: Donation (includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations)

Hilde was rescued from a high kill central valley shelter by a local Bay Area humane society. After working with her, and putting her in couple of foster homes, the humane society deemed her “unadoptable” and began discussions to euthanize her. An humane society employee who knew Nobody’s Perfekt Dogs rescue when they worked at a local shelter reached out to us for help. We pulled her into foster care. Hilde’s biggest issue was that she guarded EVERYTHING: blankets, beds, couches, food, toys, etc. When you separated her from these items she was quite a fun and engaging little gal - playful, wanting affection, etc.

Her first foster home was successful in dealing with the issue. They simply “called her bluff” and claimed ownership of the things that she was guarding. She backed down, grumbled a little, and that was it. The other dogs in the home also didn’t take her guarding seriously. Within a couple days most of it subsided. We tried moving her to other foster homes: one without any dogs and another that had a senior female Chi. Unfortunately, they didn’t work out and now she is back in the original foster home.

Hilde needs a home with very experienced, mature Chihuahua owners where Hilde will feel secure. She is good with other dogs and being in a well run, stable pack also helps her feel secure. She would do well as the 3rd, 4th or 5th dog in the home. She likes being on a lap and surprisingly, she doesn’t lap guard. She is open to sharing a lap with other dogs in the pack. Otherwise, she kind of just does her own thing, keeping to herself most of the time. She needs a house with a backyard that she can access when she wants. She is okay on a leash for walks, but having a harness put her on by someone she doesn’t trust, will be challenging. So it is best to do walks later in the relationship.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We specialize in "hard to place dogs" due to their breed, age, minor behavioral or medical conditions. We strive to keep our fees reasonable ($125), and we have sponsorship funds to help with fees, if needed.

After the application is approved, the prospective adopter must take the dog on a trial-basis "sleepover" for a few days, before finalizing the adoption.

We require landlord approval if the applicant is renting their living space.

We only do adoptions in San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding regions.

We DO NOT adopt to families with children under the age of 13.

More about this rescue

We specialize in finding homes for dogs where “imperfection” is tolerated in exchange for a lifetime of love and devotion.

Our foster dogs have been discarded by the people they once trusted, only to find themselves in a shelter with no other options.

We want them to have a second chance to receive the love and care they deserve.
