Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Large ears perked, awesome Avery is packed in his picnic basket and ready to go. This is one handsome and happy fella who not only loves running and playing with the other dogs in his foster home, but loves curling up in his foster mom’s lap for the belly rubs he adores. He would even curl up with his feline friends if they would purr-mit it. But, sadly, they don’t. Eager to learn and to please, adaptable Avery is both crate and housetrained, and remains calmly crated while his foster mom’s at work. His reward? More of the playtime he loves. Good with children and adults alike, what amiable Avery would really like is to make his forever home one of smiles and sweet loving. Avery's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado. If you are interested in adopting this litte one, please go to our website at www.chihuahua-smalldogrescue.org and submit an online adoption application.

More About Chihuahua Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Whether it’s her ears, her eyes or that black stripe on her forehead, Hallie’s features take your breath away. An extremely shy little lady, she prefers settling in to new surroundings and meeting new people at her own, cautious pace. Then, once she’s been acclimated, her shyness subsides, and her natural sweetness surfaces. Allow her to come to you for pets and "chats" or invite her onto your lap, and she will cuddle up close to you. But move too much or too quickly, and she will jump down. Startle her with a brisk approach, and she will lie down submissively, signaling that you shouldn’t pick her up. As for other dogs, provided they approach her slowly, she does well with them. As for her favorite pastime? Going outside to sunbathe. Both house and pee pad trained, what this shy honey needs now are loving, gentle and patient adopters who will help her blossom into the sweetest and most loving of companions. Hallie's adoption fee is $275.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Breed: Italian Greyhuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Italian Greyhound / Mixed. Great caramel ears like doggy antennae are what you see first when meeting amber-eyed Ari. Although shy at first blush, she quickly becomes the belle of the ball, coyly urging all comers to come play with her. Sassy and spicy, she thrives on activity, and is happiest when busiest, although she will find and chew on her own toys (and on any small item dropped and forgotten) if left to her own devices. She gets along well with the other animals in her foster home, and when her foster mom’s out, stays calmly inside her crate, sleeping quietly there at night as well. With her housetraining progressing, adorable Ari is almost ready to put her paw in the adoption pool to search for an active and adoring forever home. Ari's adoption fee is $275.00.

      Breed: Cairn Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Cairn Terrier (long coat). Large perked ears and wispy whirls of silvery black hair make sweet Princess a striking standout in any canine crowd. True to her regal name, she’s gracious and affectionate, lively and playful, bestowing happy kisses on anyone in her foster home who gives her rubs. A dedicated sun worshiper, she loves lying outside on the grass, enjoys romping with her foster sibs, and even dances happily for treats. One would never know this mischievous miss is nine years old, suffers from diabetes, and has limited vision in both eyes because of cataracts. A trooper with a capital T, she easily accepts her twice-daily insulin shots, always "thanking" her foster mom with extra kisses, and despite her limited vision, navigates well around the house and yard. Due to her diabetes, she drinks a large amount of water and must be taken outside every two hours or so. More than worth her weight in gold, precious Princess is, in the words of her foster mom, "a commitment of love", to be made by an adult-only home, with someone always there (she receives her insulin 12 hours apart after her meals), and who will be more than royally loved in return. Princess's adoption fee is $150.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Meet Goliath, the tiny Chi mix with the HUGE name, who’s the smallest and sweetest of love bugs. A devoted little darling who loves to cuddle and give kisses, he enjoys nothing more than being where his foster is, whether it’s napping all day by her side or curling up next to her under the covers and sleeping at night. But he doesn’t live solely for love. He also enjoys being with children (he hasn’t yet met other dogs or cats) and snacking on treats. Somewhat protective, this gnome-sized Goliath seems to have some issues with men, and although housetrained, healthy, and on the hunt for a forever home, he may need some extra TLC to help him find his "comfort zone." Goliath's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). To say that MegaByte is mega cute would be an understatement. And this gentle, ginger tipped black beauty finds nothing as stimulating or satisfying as being in the company of her people. Although her favorite game is “catch me if you can”, this canny canine has an ulterior motive: she loves being caught since it means being held. When not following after her foster mom, MegaByte can be found playing outside in the sun, and because she gets along with children, cats, and other dogs, every one of them is a potential playmate. At bedtime, however, this love bug’s choice is clear, as she curls up for the night with the human closest to her heart. Housetrained, happy and hopeful, MegaByte is now eager to bring her mega love to a loving forever home. Megabyte's adoption fee is $275.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Lexi is fairly shy but is getting better each day. She will play some with her foster friends but prefers to be with her human or in a little bed kind of off by herself. She is still learning that it is ok to get up in your lap to snuggle some and following you around is ok also. Lexi is housebroken and will use a potty pad when she can't get outside. She likes to sunbathe some and is learning that toys are kind of fun too. Lexi needs her forever home to be patient, loving and kind of laid back. If you have those qualities, Lexi would learn to be your best friend and the love of your life. Lexi's adoption fee is $275.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

Although slightly shy when first meeting people, as soon as he warms up to you, he’s pup putty in your hands, and your lap will quickly become his favorite place to be. As self-sufficient as he is sweet and snuggly, Beans is good with children and dogs, and having lived with many furry foster sibs, he’s no stranger to either their quirks or their company. Marvelously mellow to the point of lovely laziness, Beans is full of beans when it comes to loving, and is eagerly looking for a forever home to reap the rewards of all that loving.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). In her sleek black coat, this sweet and sunny chi is doing what she loves best: stretching out in the warmth of the sun. Her next best loves are snuggling with her fosters while they watch TV and romping her way round the yard. And tiny Tooty is a total cutie whenever she smiles. Why? Because that’s when the tip of her tongue comes out, adding an impish look to her already elfin features. Both crate and house trained, she knows how to use a doggie door, but truly dislikes being in her crate. Due to a birth defect, she’s unable to climb a full flight of stairs, but she easily manages the few steps into her foster home from outside. Her doggy birth certificate may say she’s 10 years old, but being young at heart has kept her young and oh-so-loving. Eager to share your love with one very special sweetie who will love you forever? Just give Tooty a toot. Tooty's adoption fee is $150.00.We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.
