Story
Potato  is a 13 year old chihuahua who came to our care when her owner had to go live in a nursing home. Potato is a very easy girl to love and care for. She mostly sleeps and pops up every now and then looking for some butt scratches.  She loves snuggling under the covers at night sleeping with her humans and would love to find a home where she can chill and get those butt scratches on the regular for her remaining years. She does have a collapsing trachea which is common in some smaller dogs and takes cough syrup as needed to help her breath when it acts ups. She also has a tumor on her belly that is nonmalignant but that can't be safely removed due to her trachea issue. All in all though, she's a sweetheart. Her foster family calls her their little "sweet potato." If you'd like to spoil this sweet senior with the good life, please submit an application of interest by clicking the Adopt button under her photo on our website at www.4pups.org. Potato's adoption fee is $25 as she's considered hospice since her trachea issue prevents her from any surgical medical procedures that she might need in the future and also from getting that dental she really needs. Her adopter must be ok with stinky breath. :)    ##1860420##

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?
