My story

Columbo is a 5 year old sweetheart.  He is a little shy when he first meets someone but once he gets to know you, he will jump up on your lap for pets.  He patiently waits for treats.  He likes to play with toys and enjoys being out in the play yard with the other small dogs.  He's a quiet little guy and would love a home where he has a nice soft bed, a yard to soak up the sun and people to love him.  Columbo would do better in a home with older children (12+).  

If Columbo sounds like the perfect dog for you, please contact Chi Town Rescue to schedule a meet & greet.  If you have any other dogs at home, please bring them with you to meet Columbo.  He would love to go home soon!

More about this rescue

"Chi Town" is short for "Chihuahua Town," which is our nick-name because we found that the majority of animals we were rescuing happened to be Chihuahuas and literally have a little “town” comprised of Chihuahuas! Chihuahuas are one of the most over-bred dogs in Arizona and unfortunately many end up in need of rescue. However, we are not limited to saving just Chihuahas, we do save other breeds dependent on availability of space. Chi Town also specializes in rescuing dogs who require a little extra TLC and are at risk of euthanasia at county shelters. These dogs may not be doing well for a variety of reasons- fear, fear aggression, anxiety, or a medical issue to name a few. These are the dogs that typically have no other outlet and for which time is of the essence . After our dogs are medically cleared and/or their behavioral issues have improved, they are available for adoption.

Please be aware that we do our very best to answer all questions in a timely manner.

We are always seeking to help promote these special Chihuahuas who are too often overlooked in AZ shelters due to the sheer volume of this breed. Please share and like us on Facebook:
