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
Blue is a loving and friendly boy! He is roughly 9 years old and around 70 pounds. Blue loves people and children but likes to be the only male dog in the house. He does fine with female dogs. I am not a fan of cats. Blue doesn't really like toys but he LOVE bones. He does like walks but is a strong boy and will need a little work on not pulling so hard. Blue also loves to be a lap dog if everyone else is sitting down, even though he's one big lap dog! Blue is looking for his forever home, could that be you?

Bandit

Chihuahua

Male, 8 yrs 3 mos
Indianapolis, IN
Size
(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Details
Good with dogs, Not good with cats, House-trained, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
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

Sharkey

Pomeranian Chihuahua

Story
Sharkey! This guy is a very special pet! The name Sharkey is somewhat descriptive, as "Sharkey" can be a little bit "spicey". He will warm up to his person, and he will allow petting but will be a guy who needs to be handled with care. Sharkey has an unfortunate story of prior life, He was an "outdoor" dog, who came to rescue in poor shape. He had a skin condition that needed attention and was complicated by his matted fur. His dedicated foster mom took in Sharkey and got through his mats, gave him prescribed meds for his skin condition and got him on healthy foods to turn him around completely. He is happy to go outdoors, he eats a healthy diet and will sleep in an exercise pen or larger kennel. He will go in and out with a little direction, and a secure fenced area is a must. Sharkey is happy to go outdoors, but he's also VERY happy to come back in and settle on a soft bed or cushion. Sharkey will do well in a home where he is the only pet, or with one other calm and balanced pet. Sharkey's protective of his personal space. As long as there is an understanding of what is a comforting and welcoming environment for Sharkey, he will do well. Chihuahua Rescue is delighted to have taken in this pet and given him a chance of a loving forever home. We are confident he will be someone's EVERYTHING if given a chance. Sharkey is not recommended to be in a home with children and should go to an adopter experienced in handling a special needs pet. Please inquire about this pet in need and be prepared to have a most grateful companion!
