My story


Sophie and Pickles are a bonded chihuahua pair that must be adopted together. Although they are not siblings, they were raised together and love playing/cuddling/sleeping w/each other. They are extremely bonded! They're around 2.5 years old and are completely vetted, spayed, neutered and microchipped and in great health.

Pickles is a Chihuahua-Rat Terrier mix, neutered male, weighs 14 lbs, and is a sweet natured boy, playful and a little shy initially but warms up quickly. Sophie is a super playful, spunky chihuahua who weighs 10 lbs. They both love to hang out on the couch with their foster mom when she’s watching tv. These two love to run in a fenced yard, and they are FAST and are so so fun to watch!

They have lived with several small dogs, and overall do very well, and both are great with cats too. They've never been around children at all, so the preference is no kids under 15 years old.

Their ideal home is an established single person or couple who are settled and have a quiet home with a fenced yard. They are not 100% housetrained but are pad-trained. A home where someone is home during the day or not gone all day is ideal.

Chihuahuas possess loyalty, charm, and big-dog attitude. Even tiny dogs require training, and without it, they will rule your household like a little Napoleon. Compact and confident, Chihuahuas are ideal city pets. They are too small for roughhousing with kids, and special care must be taken in cold weather, but Chihuahuas are adaptable as long as they get lots of quality time in their preferred lap.
