Story
Meet Henley! This sweet girl is one of the Chihuahua mixes that were rescued back in December. She and her siblings had been left outside most of their lives. Henley is about 11 months old and was so scared and timid when we first brought her in, but has warmed up so well in her foster home! Henley loves snuggling, playing with her toys and hanging out with her foster mama. She is not a fan of being outside when it’s cold and needs a forever home that will teach her how to walk on a leash and introduce her to new adventures when she’s ready. Henley gets along with other dogs, but may need a slow introduction. Another dog in the home may help build Henley's confidence. If you think you would be a good fit for Henley, you can fill out an application here: https://www.coopersafeplace.org/application-page Her adoption fee is $450.00

Story
Hi, I’m Ralphie, and I’m ready for a new adventure, hopefully with you! I’m a five-year-old, six-pound male chihuahua, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. I’m currently with my foster family as I get treatment for some hind leg trouble. Once that’s all cleared up, I’ll be available for adoption! I was picked up as a stray in Illinois and Chihuahua Rescue and Transport sprung me from animal control–my lucky day! My unstable past has given me some anxiety though: I get nervous around strangers and I hate being separated from my people, although I’m never destructive. I also have a little trouble with exposing my private parts and will need help to keep them healthy. Although I have trouble with strangers, once I get to know them, I love my humans completely! I especially enjoy snuggling with them and having them throw my toy ducky so I can show off my fetching skills. I get along with other small dogs too, as long as they’re calm. My foster mom is proud of my housetraining work–she says I’m almost there! I’ll need an experienced adopter who can help me with my stranger anxiety and who can stay home with me most of the time. I know I come with some challenges, but I promise I will more than make up for the extra work with my sweet snuggles and undying devotion! Will you give me a chance to prove it? Ralphie’s adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in adopting Ralphie, please DO NOT SEND A MESSAGE TO OUR RESCUE GROUP.

Everything is better with chocolate…and with me, Hershey Chocolate! I’m a nine-pound, six-year-old male chihuahua, fully vetted, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on heartworm medication. I get my name from my chocolate-colored fur and my sweet disposition. Won’t you give me a try? I may take a little time to warm up to you, but once I do, I’m a super-snuggly boy. I enjoy snuggling in blankets, but I love cuddling with my favorite person even more. I like to be held like a baby, and I promise to shower you with kisses and be your loyal companion, following you wherever you go! Because I am blind and hard of hearing, I need some extra care and attention. I’ll need a fenced yard so I can roam without going too far. I also get anxious when I’m around kids or other animals, so I’ll need a quiet home where I’m the only baby. If you keep me on a schedule, I’m pretty good with my housetraining, but I’m also agreeable to wearing a belly band to prevent accidents in the house. I also don’t mind being in my crate; my foster mom leaves the door open so I can come and go as I please. If you’ve always longed for chocolate that doesn’t make your waistband tighter, look no further! I’m guaranteed to sweeten every moment with no unwanted side effects! Hershey Chocolate’s adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in adopting Hershey Chocolate, please DO NOT SEND A MESSAGE TO OUR RESCUE GROUP.

Story
Hola, amigo! I’m Ariele Angelina, a ten-pound female chihuahua, roughly five to eight years old (a lady never tells). I was recently rescued from the streets of Tijuana, Mexico, and brought all the way to Wisconsin, where I was fully vetted, vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and gotten up-to-date on heartworm medication. Now this world traveler is ready to settle down for good with a forever family; how about yours? One thing I’ve noticed since moving to Wisconsin is that it is cold here! Wearing a sweater helps me keep warm, not to mention look stylish. My favorite way to keep warm, however, is snuggling! I love to cuddle in bed on a cool night, and I’m always happy to add kisses. I will greet you ecstatically with them when you come home, and if you sit on the floor, I’ll consider you fair game for play and even more kisses! As you might expect, I’m a quick mover, so I’ll need a fenced-in yard. Loud noises make me want to run and hide, so I’ll need a quieter environment with no small children. I would love to have a doggy sibling or two to play with, but I’ll need to be fed in a separate room because I can be a bit possessive with my food. I also love a good car ride, but only if I’m safely latched into a doggy car seat to help me resist the urge to move around. I adjust easily to new surroundings and can’t wait to take one more trip to my forever home. You won’t believe how quickly I’ll move into your heart! Ariele’s adoption fee is $300.

Story
Elmer is an eleven pound Chi mix that is full of love and kisses... but only after he feels comfortable enough not to bite your face off. I mean... he is a chihuahua after all. All joking aside, we believe him to be approximately 8 years young with a zest for life. Even though he has been said to not like all men, the men he's met so far he's been okay with. He did better while taking pictures with Santa, than most children. Elmer is likely to get nervous at first in his new home and will need proper time to settle in before becoming best friends. Proper decompression is the key to his success. He can be easily spooked with fast movements but builds trust quickly once he realizes that he is safe from harm. Once you are in... you are totally in and Elmer shows his affection by covering you in kisses and being super snuggly with his cuddles. He's a dog that doesn't know how to hold his licker... so be prepared for lots of PDA. He is also happy to just sit in your lap or lay in the crook of your arm to take a nap. Elmer is reluctant to getting in his crate, once he is in it, he will bark and grumble for a short time but will eventually settle down. When he is let out of his crate, he will jump up while walking to the door to go outside to do his business. Elmer gets along fine with all dogs, big and small in his foster home. He did some marking when first arriving to his foster home, this stopped after one week of his arrival. Elmer's teeth look really good for his age, very little tarter and "decent" breath. He is definitely a dog that needs time to adjust to change, but once he loves you, he loves you with all his heart. If you would like to meet this cute little guy and possibly add him to your family, please complete an application at PawPatrolDayton.com/adopt. His adoption fee is $210. Elmer is neutered, current on vaccinations, Heartworm negative, and he is microchipped. All of our animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed/neutered before being adopted.

Story
Hello, I’m Princess Fiona, but you can call me Fiona! I’m an eight-year-old, six-pound, longhaired female chihuahua, fully vetted, vaccinated, spayed, and microchipped. I come with my very own lady-in-waiting, Izzy, so my new home will need to have room for two. Instead of the castle I deserve, I was raised in a breeder’s warehouse and spent all my time in a crate, with little socialization. Consequently, I am very timid and fearful, and will need lots of time and patience in my new home. I’ve already made excellent progress in my foster home and am getting accustomed to being touched and fed out of my foster mom’s hand. I come when called, tail wagging, but I still get scared and run away when approached directly. While people may frighten me, I get along well with other dogs, especially my best friend, Izzy! She gives me the true royal treatment, grooming me regularly, and I take care of her right back. We also snuggle together and always practice our dancing at mealtime. I’m a happy, healthy dog whose had a rough start in life. Will you give Izzy and me the fairytale ending of our dreams? If so, we promise to help you live happily ever after too! Princess Fiona’s adoption fee is $300. If you want to adopt Fiona, please DO NOT SEND A MESSAGE TO OUR RESCUE GROUP.
