Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Loraine. She has a typical spicy chihuahua attitude with a little mischief added. She can jump and climb surprisingly high so her new home will have to work on training with her, but also keep food and dangerous items hidden away. She adores cuddling and often drifts off to sleep in your lap. She's trained to use paper potty pads and enjoys car rides. Sitting by a window and observing critters outside is one of her favorite pastimes. While she's not fond of her crate, she's getting used to it when I'm away. She really prefers to be with her people. She may be fine with older, respectful children, but young children would likely be too much for her. As per standard chihuahua behavior, she will bark at strangers, but will eventually calm down.  She probably would not be a good fit for an apartment or shared-wall home.   Walking on a leash is still a work in progress. She’s  enthusiastic about playing with both people and toys. She hasn't been exposed to big dogs or cats yet, but I believe she'll get along if they enjoy playtime. She has some food insecurities but responds well to training with treats. She loves a soft bed with a cozy blanket and will hide in the blankets on a cold day, which will be most days during Minnesota winters! To reiterate, her potty training is still a work in progress so patience and a good routine will be important. If you are a chihuahua fan and want a little attitude in your life you should apply today! Loraine weighs 9lbs and is from Texas.   One big thing you should know is they are heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting them! After they undergo treatment for their condition they will be completely healthy again, and heartworm is not a contagious disease. Because they need treatment, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) program. Click here to learn more about this program. They will get heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so their foster will need to be comfortable getting them to and from the appointments. Treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after they enter rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first. When they are undergoing treatment, they should be on activity ‘restrictions’ which just means they should relax in their crate or cuddle with you.   Click here to learn more about heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract. To learn more about Ruff Start’s adoption process and the care our foster animals receive, please visit our How to Adopt page. If you'd like to donate towards this pet's care, you can donate to our Animal Care Fund. Our Animal Care Fund supports the medical and veterinary needs for all Ruff Start Rescue animals.

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Introducing Winefred! Winefred is a laid-back lady who gets along with kids, dogs, and adults alike, but she's got eyes for just one special person. If you're retired or work from home, Winefred could be the perfect companion for you. She's a good sleeper, making it through the night without a peep. When she's in the mood, Winefred loves to play, especially with her chosen person. Due to her dental situation, she'll need soft or small-bite food to keep her happy and healthy. While Winefred wouldn't mind having another furry friend around, she might get a bit jealous if they try to steal her person's lap. If you're home during the day, Winefred will happily keep you company, whether she's curled up in your lap or chilling in her own cozy bed nearby. This little lady is fiercely loyal of her person. She even knows a great trick! Just clap your hands while standing, and she'll jump up high, ready to be caught. If you're looking for a loyal companion who'll stick by your side wherever you go, Winefred might just be the perfect match for you. Winefred currently lives with small dogs, children and adults. Winefred is from Texas. They arrive in Minnesota on 3/9/2024 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN between the hours of 5:30pm and 8:30pm. Please plan for their arrival accordingly as we cannot accommodate pickups outside of this time frame.  Since they haven’t arrived yet, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) Program. Click here to learn more about the FTA program. Once they get to Minnesota, they might require further veterinary care. Ruff Start’s veterinary suite is located in Princeton, MN, and, as the foster, you will be required to transport your dog to and from these vetting appointments.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Auntie Autumn, the adorable lady who found her way to a rural business in Texas before a kind soul took her in. Originally a stray, Auntie's had her share of uncertainties, but she's making strides every day. In the mornings, she's ready to start the day with a potty break followed by a fun food puzzle or wobbler breakfast. Then it's back outside for another potty break before the day's adventures begin. Aunties foster parents work from home,  which means Auntie gets plenty of playtime in the yard when the weather's nice. She's a nature enthusiast, enjoying birdwatching, bug chasing, and lots of playtime with her canine companions. She isn't afraid to sit at the door with a toy in her mouth letting you know she is eager to get back outside and play. While she may bark and back away from new faces at first, Auntie's warming up slowly but surely.  It is important to allow her time to warm up to new situations and people on her own time.  Her foster family has been very committed to helping her learn that people can be trusted and she has made huge improvements. She will need a home that is committed to continuing this work. Auntie's a clown at heart, always ready for a game of fetch or a zoomie session around the yard. But she's also a young pup with plenty of energy to burn, so she'll need plenty of supervision and appropriate outlets for her exercise needs. With patience and guidance, Auntie will make a loyal and loving companion for someone willing to invest time in her. If you're ready to teach and learn alongside a smart and playful pup, Auntie Autumn could be the perfect match for you. Auntie Autumn currently lives with adults, small dogs and cats. She has not been introduced to children or large dogs. Since she can be unsure around new people, older and considerate children will be the best fit for her right now.   Auntie Autumn is from Texas. They arrive in Minnesota on 3/9/2024 and will need to be picked up from the Ruff Start Rescue office in Princeton, MN between the hours of 5:30pm and 8:30pm.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Hi, I’m Jujube! I’m the perfect mix of cuddly sweet and playful. They call me a cuddle bug. Whatever that is. I like playing with my foster siblings too. I’ll even sneak a toy from them, then hide it, just for fun. My favorite is when we all get on the couch at night or in bed with my foster Mom. It’s like a big snuggle fest.  I have a favorite blankie I like to sleep on too.  My foster Mom thinks I’m a cute blend of Chihuahua, Dachshund and who knows what else. She loves my alert Chihuahua ears and cute little body, weighing in at 6#’s. I’m the perfect size to go anywhere.  My foster Mom works at home. She needs me to be quiet when talking to clients. This isn’t a problem for me. I’m a pretty quiet girl. The only thing that gets me going is when strangers come over. Then, I have to let my foster siblings know there might be danger.  I prefer doing my business outside. But when it got sooo cold, my foster Mom taught me how to use potty pads. She says it’s kind of like using a litter box. Just toss out when they get dirty. This made so much sense to me. Those cats don’t have to freeze their feet outside to go potty. Why should I have to? Really though, I’m looking forward to when I can do that kind of business outside again.  My life changed a lot recently. I’m not sure how I ended up here. I was really scared at first. Hiding in my kennel a lot. Then I realized this place is pretty cool. Now I’m wherever the people are. The other pets in the house are pushier than I am though. So, they end up getting most of the attention. I’d really like a quieter home where I could get more one on one time with my human. Maybe another play mate would be nice too.  Jujube is from a local impound. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better,please fill out an adoption application.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Hi there, my name is BellaBlanca, and I'm a bundle of energy and cuteness wrapped up in a tan fur coat. I might be small in size, but my vibrant personality more than makes up for it! I'm a proud rescue dog with a unique mix of Chihuahua traits that make me one-of-a-kind. With a heart full of love and a spirit full of adventure, I'm always ready for action. Whether it's chasing after a squeaky toy, exploring new trails, or zooming around the living room, I'm up for any adventure that comes my way. My high energy levels mean I'm a great companion for active individuals who can keep up with my zest for life. Oh, did I mention my vocals? I've got quite the voice! I'm not shy about expressing myself and letting my opinions be heard. Whether I'm excited about mealtime, eager for playtime, or just trying to make sure everyone knows I'm around, I'll let out my signature chihuahua bark that's impossible to ignore. But it's not just my energy and vocals that make me special - my irresistible cuteness also steals hearts wherever I go. My tan fur is soft to the touch, and my adorable face with those big, expressive eyes is bound to make anyone melt. People can't resist scooping me up and showering me with affection, and I absolutely revel in all the attention.  Living in a home with another dog has helped me tremendously, so I do need another dog in my adoptive home to continue to learn from and help me gain confidence.  I am potty trained on a schedule.  BellaBlanca is from Texas.

She was found in Texas with severe burns on her back. Sissy is on the road to recovery – her fur slowly regrowing and wounds healed, thanks to dedicated care in her Texas foster home.   When meeting new people she can be cautious and it is important to let her settle in on her on timeline. Despite her reservations, she's not aggressive, just a tad timid when it comes to new human interaction. She prefers not to be picked up, it seems to make her uncomfortable. Her favorite part of the day is playing with the other small dogs in her foster home!   Outdoors is where Sissy thrives, especially in the company of her small dog companions.

She's does well on the leash, though a little encouragement may be needed at first when putting it on her. Positive reinforcement is helping her become more comfortable with the leashing process.   With the influence of her furry pals, Sissy's confidence has seen a boost. Having a confident small dog in her forever home will help her continue to learn to trust the world! She has a healthy appetite, particularly for treats, and loves her daily walks and outdoor playtime.   Sissy would thrive in a home without children, alongside another playful small dog.  Someone who can be around more often, can offer her the patience and space she requires to become comfortable, would be the perfect fit for her.
