Story
Carly is a little Chiweenie who was found as a stray and taken to a very overcrowded, high-kill shelter. She is an anxious, skittish little girl, but is very sweet despite her fear. She's not at all yappy or nippy. She wants to be friends with humans, but is too afraid to completely trust. When she works up the courage to be held and petted, she will give lots of doggy kisses. She gets along really well with other small to medium dogs. She has good potty habits, provided she's able to go outside on a fairly regular basis. She will also use a potty pad if needed. Although shy, she does want to be near her people. She needs an adopter who will be patient with her and give her the time she needs to trust and feel safe. She is not a good leash walker, so will need a home with a fenced yard. Carly is a sweet, quirky little girl. If you like funny, quirky little dogs, please submit an adoption application for Carly online at https://www.mistyeyes.org/adoptionapplication.

Say hi to Clark! He's a short-coated Chihuahua mix who has been in and out of a high-kill shelter several times in his young life. To keep him safe, Misty Eyes brought him into our foster home program. He's a sweet, friendly, active, playful little guy who gets along with other dogs and will make a terrific companion dog with a little basic training. If you'd like to meet Clark, please submit an adoption application online at https://www.mistyeyes.org/adoptionapplication.

Story
Charlie is a 3 yr old chihuahua mix. He loves walks but also likes to relax and cuddle after a long day. When you warm his trust he is very sweet. He loves treats. He is super smart and silly at the same time. He likes to play with toys. He needs someone who can provide a lot of time or at least another dog companion he can play with. He is attached to his buddy Cocoa who I’ve also listed on this website.

Story
Taffeta & Chiffon go together like apple pie & ice cream! These two are sisters from different litters; they came from a hoarder who had over 60 dogs in the home. Taffeta has the lighter colored face and is 1 1/2 years old; Chiffon has the darker face and is about 1 year old. The girls are a mix of about 5 breeds ... chihuahua/jack russell is what we will list but those round ears are definitely corgi like! And there may be a smidge of dachshund in them as well. Taffeta & Chiffon are just a hoot!!! They are constantly wrestling & rolling around & tearing around the house in games of chase. When they tire of these antics, they are the absolute best snuggle bugs ever! They wrap themselves up around your neck and cuddle in as close to you as they can get. They give the softest, gentlest kisses as well! The girls are still lacking in socialization with people and will bark at strangers; they will need patience and calm training in order to learn that newcomers are not a threat. For this reason, they would not do well in homes with children 16 and under. Taffeta & Chiffon will also need a very secure fenced in yard in which they expend some of their energy. With their fear issues, walking daily on leashes would be too much for them at this point. Chiffon has a "cherry eye" which is scheduled to be removed at the same time as her spay on October 20th. We are only placing the pair with local adopters so that we can assist with integration and socialization for the girls. The adoption fee for the pair is $400; they will be spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and current on heartworm/flea preventative. (Indianapolis area)

Story
To know her is to love her!!!!! Meet Sparrow, an 8 month old, 13 lb pug/chihuahua girl who's feisty, outgoing, and has plenty of pizzazz! She's great with people and dogs. Sparrow loves to wrestle and play chase with her doggy friends; can self-entertain with all kinds of toys; and when she's tired, she's the best snuggle bug!!! Despite being a puppy, Sparrow isn't destructive and doesn't chew things up. She does like to sleep in bed with her person and cuddles right up next to you. She will need to be potty trained as in her previous home in an apartment, she was never taken outside to go to the bathroom. Sparrow's perfect home will require a fenced-in yard and a very playful dog that can keep her busy and also entice her to stay outside to "do her doodie." Sparrow's adoption fee is $300; she is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations as well as heartworm/flea preventative. Applications are available at waldosmuttleycrew.org. (Indianapolis area)

Story
Baxter first came to Chihuahua Rescue 5 years ago when he was almost one year old. He was surrendered back to the Rescue along with Matilda, who is called Tilly. They were surrendered to Chihuahua Rescue after their owner developed serious health issues and was no longer able to care for them. Potty training was not enforced in Baxter's previous household, so we re-emphasized that skill. He made good progress and is pretty reliable, especially since we got his urinary tract infection treated. He's also crate trained now. Baxter was very overweight upon his return, so with the efforts outlined below we got him back to a healthy weight. Feeding a measured amount of weight-loss food, limiting treats, no human food and getting good exercise in the yard has done the trick; he is at his goal weight! Baxter does have a tendency to bolt out the door if given the chance, so potential adopters should have a securely fenced yard. Baxter has settled in well into his foster's household. His shots are back up to date and he is heartworm negative and back on preventive. Baxter has a very loud bark and uses it to indicate his desires or notify the household of approaching strangers, so he would not be ideal in a shared-wall situation. Baxter is particularly not a fan of big dogs. 10/31/22 CG, updated 11/18/22, 1/11/23, 2/16/23, 4/10/23

Story
My name is Jairo, but my foster mommy calls me Nacho. I was found running around a strange neighborhood by a really nice lady that took me to her Vet clinic. The Chihuahua Rescue took me in and my foster mommy made me feel safe again. I just want a forever home again and a warm lap to cuddle on again. I am a really sweet boy and love to lay on your lap for lovin's!! Sometimes I'll play with toys and even with my foster siblings!! Jairo is current on vaccines, has had a one year proheart shot for heartworms, microchipped, and neutered. At his last exam, a heart murmur was found. He is now on daily heart meds. He will come with his own cage and bed that he is comfortable with. Do you have room in your heart for this sweet little senior boy?

Story
Bandit is a very loving, sweet dog. He is playful, especially likes to play fetch. All vet needs are up to date. He loves to curl up on your lap for a nap. His previous owner could no longer care for him. Bandit is housebroken and does great as long as you offer lots of breaks and notice his cues of needing to go outdoors. It takes him a while to warm up to new people. Bandit has some very chihuahua behaviors, he loves "his" person, and will keep others away by doing a dance around the feet of the tstranger and he "might" take a nip at the ankle. Its not representative of Bandit's overall super sweet and enjoyable personality. He likes to get up by your face and lay his head on you and then takes his paw and pats you on the face. Its darling, and almost cat-like. If you’re looking for a great companion, Bandit would be great for you. Bandit just had his teeth cleaned at the vet and he is current on flea and heartworm meds as well as routine vaccines. He's not a big eater, he does like treats, and he is crate trained. He is fine with other friendly dogs. Bandit's adoption fee is $350 and he's ready for adoption now. Fostered by sphil

Story
Pom Lovers, Check This Out! This handsome young Pomeranian male was drifting around a rural area and could not be caught. He was finally trapped and taken to the local high-kill shelter. He was confused, terrified and totally unapproachable, so was at risk for euthanasia. Misty Eyes brought Drifter into our foster program, and he has become a friendly, affectionate, playful pup who is still frightened by the unknown. He's a larger Pom at 12.6 lb. and is estimated to be about 1 year old. Like many small breed dogs, Drifter can be spicy at times. Once he gets to know you, he's very loving and sweet, but he will snap/nip at new people who try to pick him up, or otherwise handle him. After proper introductions, he'll be your best buddy. He is living with other small dogs in his foster home and gets along just fine, although he'd really like to play a lot more than the old-timers he lives with. Drifter has obviously been someone's pet at one time. He does understand "go potty," and immediately goes to the door. He does not know sit, stay, down, etc., but he's a very quick learner. Drifter's left front paw is deformed, thought to be a birth defect. He's actually missing some digits and has a very large nail with a couple of other normal sized nails. He occasionally limps or skips on that foot, particularly on rough surfaces. Otherwise, it does not seem to bother him, and we have elected not to attempt any sort of surgery because it cannot really be repaired. Drifter doesn't let his misshapen paw slow him down...he can run and play with the best of them. Because he's reactive when frightened, he is not recommended for homes with children. Since he does have a luxurious Pom coat, he is rather high maintenance...a lot of brushing is required. If you'd like to meet Drifter, please submit an adoption application online at https://www.mistyeyes.org/adoptionapplication.
