My story

Meet Elvis!  Sorry....we have to say it.....Elvis has not left the building.  Elvis is currently staying at Chi Town Rescue and looking for his furever home.  He is a 5 year old, long legged chihuahua that looks like a deer when he runs around the play yard.  Elvis is a long timer at the rescue having been there for over 2 years and it's time for him to leave the building.  Elvis is a very shy dog that was not socialized in his previous situation.  He is going to need an adopter that understands timid dogs and the time and patience it will take for him to warm up to a new family.  But if you have that patience, Elvis is so worth it!  The first time he lets you pet him feels like such a breakthrough and is so rewarding.  Just look at the picture of him getting his head petted.  He is such a sweetheart.  He does like playing with toys and the other dogs at the rescue.  Because of his long legs, Elvis can jump very high.  He needs a yard with a high fence.  He is going to need a quiet home with older children (12+ years old).

If you would like to meet Elvis and see if he would be a good fit in your home, please contact Chi Town Rescue to make an appointment for a meet and greet.

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:
