Story
When Lola came into the rescue, she was a hefty 12 lb chihuahua. Her former owner became ill and could no longer care for her. She is spayed, current on vaccines, and preventions.  Lola is looking for a foster/adopter who is committed to helping her lose weight and getting her socialized.  Ideally, this would involve hand feeding so that she can start to build a bond with her foster/adopter. Since coming into rescue, she has lost some weight and is becoming more active.  We have learned that Lola will play with your feet and that she is a huge fan of pizza crust.  She loves her doggy bed, too! She is pee pad trained and goes to the door to poop - but won’t go outside - and prefers to use the peepad.  This girl is slow to warm up but does want to be loved. She likes attention and even talks back when talked to. She is head shy, so if you go towards her with your hand, she lets you know that she does not like that and will use her teeth. It will take a special foster/adopter who is willing to work through this issue with her.  An ideal home for her would be an adult only home.  She is dog friendly.May 27, 2024, 3:59 pm

Story
Rodney is a very curious, mischievous little guy who gets into everything, just like a little puppy. They say this guy is around 8 years of age and weighs 12 pounds, but he acts like a kid and he shows it by running a lot out of pure joy and fun and he adores being outdoors and laying in the sun. He is not good on a leash yet and is not housebroken but we are working on both. Cats are not welcome in his world at this point because he finds them strange and annoying.  But he redeems himself with a family by loving to cuddle and snuggle.  Can you believe that underbite he has?  I mean it is the first thing you sort of notice about him.  It might make him look tough but Rodney is a 'softie' through and through.  He is just an adorable, sweet pup and he deserves a much better home than the hoarding conditions that he came from.  Maybe you want to help him see the blessings of a new home and secure lifestyle.  He will make you laugh, he will make you smile and he will make you feel loved!  Please email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrnewengland@gmail.com if you are interested in giving him a forever home.  Please tell us the city and state that you live in when you write to us. PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.May 28, 2024, 12:37 pm

Story
  Sam Silver is a handsome and most unusually colored Chihuahua boy that is only 5 years old and a perfect size at just 12 pounds.  This boy is an athlete and can climb any mountain and jump across any river.  Thus we call him .....a little escape artist. He loves being outside and laying in the sun where he is cultivating his summer tan.  This guy gets along with people, other dogs but has decided that cats are NOT his cup of tea.  He loves to terrorize the foster cats who are smart, fast and not about to get caught. If they leave his room then he is fine.  That is all he wants.  Sam Silver is good on a leash and we are working on housebreaking. He’s a snuggler both on the couch and as a bed bug under the covers at nighttime. He’s just so much fun to watch as he explores this new foster home after he escaped the tiny God forbidden shelter he was in because his owner was a terrible hoarder with a nasty environment.  He deserves a peaceful and fun family.  Is that you?  Please email us at ccrnewengland@gmail.com if you are interested.  Please tell us where you live, city and state.  We transport from Tennessee to many places in the northeast.    PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.May 28, 2024, 12:37 pm

Story
This is our boy that we call Grateful Gibbs and he is truly just that.  He knows that he spent his first year of life in a rather chaotic and barely attentive backyard breeder environment.  The woman finally admitted that she didn’t want to keep breeding and has allowed Critter Cavalry Rescue to take her leftovers that were never adopted as puppies. The woman had a baby and then had no time for the dogs she was supposed to be breeding and getting the puppies adopted.  Nothing wrong with Grateful Gibbs except that he lived a good deal of the time with little attention and mostly in a large crate.  Boy is he forever “grateful” to be out of that terrible house and being offered to a good family that Critter Cavalry Rescue has promised to find for him. He is just ONE YEAR OLD and only 10 pounds.  He is shy at first because he has had such limited exposure to people other than the woman and her family at the breeder home.   This boy call Gibbs, is not totally housebroken but a bellyband worn for a while will help in the learning process.  Once he has time to learn a new house routine and a bathroom schedule is established, then he will be fine.  Our boy is fully grown and will not be any bigger than 10 pounds.  Young and needing love we are seeking someone that can give Gibbs what he has never had.  Unconditional love and commitment.  Please write to us at Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrnewengland@gmail.com Gibbs slowly warms up to you, but once he does, it is on.  This boy is your best friend.  He is super duper smart, catches on quickly.  Gibbs loves other dogs, gets along well with cats, and loves humans.  Riding in a car is one of his favorite things and he is always out for an adventure.  Gibbs is one years of age and with his breed and size, he has many years ahead.  He is neutered, UTD on all vaccinations, HW negative, and healthy as can be.  Gibbs uses the puppy pad, but foster mom is working on housebreaking. .  But as smart as he is – he is quickly learning to go outside. PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.May 28, 2024, 12:37 pm

Story
My name is Prince Charlie and I am truly a dog with some royal habits in my everyday life.  I was found on a rural back road in Tennessee and I just think that somehow my owners were misguided in dropping me off in the middle of nowhere.  They didn’t explain but I think it was financial problems.  But apparently the vet says that I am an adorable 8-year-old cream-coloredPug/Chihuahua boy with a heart of gold! I really don’t weigh much at all and the scales at the vet said 13 pounds.  What I can say is that I am a strong and “bounce back “ boy that is ready to make your life happier and more loving with me by y our side. But listen up.  I may be 8 years old, but I have a whole lot of energy to spare and so “senior” movements are not what I am all about at all.  I can have the zoomies like the best of the youngsters out there.  Hey…maybe they guessed my age wrong.  Anyway, calling me a senior is maybe just in age but I don’t act like one and I don’t intend to.  I am a boy that you can take out on walks, hikes, or social events outside and I will help you make more friends than you could ever imagine.  I love all the dogs and cats at my foster home.  I just love anything and everyone!  The one thing that I am still learning after a short time in my foster home, is the house-training skills.  But I can say that I am eager to please and so I am a great student trying to pass my house training exam.  I am ready to be your fun machine, your love machine and your friendship matchmaker.  Consider adopting me and you won’t regret it.  Just email Critter Cavalry Rescue at ccrtennessee@gmail.com   They will quickly send you an application for adoption.  You don’t want to miss out on me.  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comMay 28, 2024, 12:37 pm

Hi everyone this is Zeus! He is a 4yr old Miniature Schnauzer/Chihuahua Mix who is neutered. I am needing to rehome him because I moved in with a family member who unfortunately is allergic to dogs. Zeus is a great dog and knows many commands. He is potty and house trained but can be territorial over his food. He is good around kids and other dogs. If you’d like more information feel free to contact me.
