Story
We adopted Patty about 4 months ago. He is a very very loving and sweet dog. However, he is just not very happy in our home. He gets in fights with our cat every day, and he also is very nervous around our toddler. He just doesn’t like the loud noises and crying that comes with being in a house with young children. He also did have an issue where he tried to nip at my son. We’ve tried to be very vigilant about setting boundaries with the two of them and making sure everyone stays safe but I honestly just think Patty could thrive in a different type of home. I really think he is just a sensitive dog that would do well in a home with older kids and no pets. If your looking for a small dog that will love you endlessly and cuddle with you Patty is your guy. He loves giving kisses and snuggling with you. He is amazing in his crate. He would love to sleep with you in bed but we taught him “go to bed Patty” and he sleeps in a dog bed next to us all night long and doesn’t make a peep.

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
Matilda Rose, who is called Tilly, (the middle dog in the picture of 3, and the light brown one in all the other pictures) is a dignified older lady who LOVES her bond mate, Bubba Baxter (the black dog in all the other pictures). They were surrendered to Chihuahua Rescue after their previous owner developed serious health issues and was no longer able to care for them. Potty training was not enforced in Tilly's previous household, so we have re-emphasized that skill. She does well with frequent trips outside and access to potty pads in the house. Tilly loves pets and cuddles; she's happiest in her human's lap or right next to them on the couch or chair. She's quiet and settled well into her new household. Her shots are up to date. She is heartworm negative and back on preventive. Tilly is very bow-legged in the rear due to chronically dislocated kneecaps, which the vet says are not fixable with surgery. We have her on a joint supplement to keep her knees comfortable as she ages because she is at risk for arthritis. Tilly also has a significant heart murmur, though no actual symptoms of heart disease. She takes medication for her heart. 10/31/22 CG, updated 11/18/22, 4/10/23

Story
Hello, hi my name is Chiki (pronounced like Cheeky). I am a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix looking for a quieter home to call my own. Adjustment to being 'indoors' has not been easy, especially with my previous life being outside. Warming up to men takes longer than women. I can be grumbly and pace when I am unsure of new situations. My foster 'pack' helps boost my confidence. I'm crate trained - will go in (with the door open). Will need to be leash-walked or in secure fencing; will dart if scared. Just a snuggle bug looking for a 'fur'ever home. Could you be my person? 11/27/22 AR
