Story
Fabio is looking for a cushy home where he'll be spoiled during his golden years. He could be between 10-15 years old. In case you can't tell, this sweet fellow is completely blind. Unfortunately his eyes are too far gone for any kind of surgical intervention, but he manages to bump around pretty well. What Fabio gets up to in a day: - He enjoys eating. We recently learned that Fabio needs to be on a low oxalate so he's alternating between prescription food and homemade. - Fabio likes to bump around the yard. Not knowing where he is doesn't seem to be a concern for him. He confidently strikes out into the yard on his own. - Stinky laundry piles are one of his favorite places to hunker down for a nap. - Which leads me to the thing that takes up the most of his schedule: sleep! Fabio is happy to take a nap on a person but his bed or a laundry pile is great too. Let's talk medical issues! Fabio came to us with terribly infected teeth. He recently got a much needed dental. After removing 21 teeth he has 6 left. Fabio also had an enormous bladder stone which was causing urinary incontinence. Since his surgery he had some accidents the first week and I'm proud to say he hasn't had an accident in a week! He's great about pooping outside and will even bark to let me know he needs to go. Other than the blindness Fabio is in amazing shape! That being said, he's quite old and isn't going to be running any 5Ks anytime soon. Bumping around the yard is all the exercise he needs. What Fabio needs from you: Fabio needs a calm home. He would prefer to be the only dog. He does not like other dogs so this is important for his happiness. Ideally Fabio will be adopted by someone who works from home or is retired. He needs multiple potty breaks throughout the day and expects to be fed lunch. He'll be sure to let you know when he wants food! ;) Fabio would do best with a yard he can bump around in since that's one of the few joys in his life. It doesn't have to be big and doesn't necessarily need to be fenced as long as he's closely supervised. He is not a dog that is well suited to walking on a leash due to his blindness and his advanced age. Fabio needs someone who is attuned to his unique breed's needs. Hairless breeds need more frequent baths and ear cleanings. As a hairless fellow, he gets quite cold. He needs to wear clothes even in the summer with air conditioning. But if it's 75 degrees or hotter he's fine in the sun without any clothes. Because Fabio is blind, he needs a home that doesn't move stuff around a lot so he doesn't get lost. He needs to be fed a low oxalate diet of soft foods to prevent a reoccurrence of his bladder stone. And most of all Fabio needs love! If you feel like you'd be a good match for Fabio apply to adopt him today!

Story
This is Mimi! Mimi is a 9 year old, 10 pound Chinese Crested who is now available for adoption. Mimi was surrendered when her owner had to go into hospice care. Mimi was surrendered alongside Thor, who is also available for adoption through CRT (they are not bonded, so they do not need to be adopted out together). Mimi’s foster mother says she has a laid-back personality. Mimi is not a big cuddler but will lay next to you on the sofa and loves to be petted. She would make a wonderful companion as she follows you everywhere and just wants to be close to you. She doesn’t tend to play with toys. She is very friendly to new people and is quick to warm up. Mimi is housebroken, walks well on a leash and likes car rides, but is not crazy about being in a crate. It is recommended that Mimi go to a home where she can be the only dog in the house. She is fine in general with other dogs but does get territorial about her personal space. She sleeps in her own bed in her foster mom’s room at night. Mimi loves her bed and does NOT want to share it! We are unsure how Mimi would do around cats but we suspect she would be ok with them. Please be familiar with this breed and their grooming needs if you’re interested in adopting a Chinese Crested. Mimi will require regular combing, bathing and hair trimming as needed and special attention to her skin. She has a good amount of hair on her head, tail and legs but it is sparse on her torso which is normal. Due to her age, Mimi has slight cataracts but seems to see quite well despite that. The vet said that she also has a level 2/6 heart murmur. Mimi is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and has had a dental very recently. She is heartworm negative and on monthly heartworm prevention. Mimi is microchipped. Mimi’s adoption donation is $400.00. If you are interested in the above dog, please do not email us and tell us that you are interested, but submit an adoption application. The link for the application is below. To submit an application go here……chihuahua-rescue.com/adoption-application/ An application must be submitted and approved before a meet-n-greet can be scheduled. Your current dogs/cats must be spayed or neutered unless a veterinarian has determined that your current pet(s) should not be fixed due to medical reasons. They must also be up-to-date on shots and on HW preventative. Reference checks and a home visit are required so SE dogs can only be adopted in NC/SC, VA, TN, AL, MD and GA.

These pups are in Durham, North Carolina too!

Does it sound like you and Archie might be a good fit for each other? Apply now!
