Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Hi, I’m Jake and I am told often that I’m a very good boy! In the midst of the craziness and barking that happens when several Chihuahuas get together, I am usually calm and centered. I love attention, but am not pushy. I am not at all aggressive and tolerate others well. I will delight in your company, but am happy to have a little “me” time as well. I am a solid and stoic guy with an easy-going and gentle disposition. I am looking for a patient, loving family that will take the time to teach me how to walk on a leash, some basic commands, and who understands I have dry eyes that have given me some problems but the vet said to start putting artificial tears in my eyes and it will solve the problem. I have been waiting for a forever home for a long time and hope you are it. Gender: Male Age: Spayed or Neutered: Yes Special Needs: I tend to have dry eyes and need tear drops (regular over the counter) put in my eyes to keep them moist. The kennel has fans which may dry them out more easily than they would in a home. Likes Dogs: Yes, but usually hang back in a crowd Likes Cats: Unsure Likes Kids: Little ones may make me nervous My caretakers would describe me as: Quiet & Reserved Gentle Calm Charming Unless otherwise noted, all dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped prior to adoption. An application, home check and paid adoption fee are required prior to adoption. The adoption fee for adult dogs is $175 and for puppies $225 unless otherwise specified. You can meet some of our dogs at Petco in Evans, Ga most Saturdays from 12:00 to 3:00 . (We will not be at Petco November 26th, December 24th or December 31st.) We only bring a few dogs with us each week so if you are interested in a particular dog, let us know so we can bring him/her with us. To request an application send an email to CSRAchihuahuarescue@gmail.com

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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Bo and am all male! At the Rescue, I love to run around with my dog friends and am a playful, cheery guy. I like treats and wait patiently to be given one and like to take it into a crate to enjoy. I am a bit timid, though not aggressive, with strangers. I am friendly and want to be around people and to be petted, but I’m just unsure about how the whole affection thing works. I am looking for a stable home that is willing to put in time with me to bring out my best side. I am a good watch dog, though quiet and relaxed when my surroundings are calm. I can be a bit of prankster, and like to walk behind the volunteers as they clean crates and replace bedding and make each crate my own. If you’re looking for a diamond in the rough and a buddy for your current four-legged friend, I could be your guy. Ask to meet me today! Gender: Male Age: 6 years Spayed or Neutered: Yes Special Needs: None, but I am at the age where I will need a professional teeth cleaning by a veterinarian ☺ Likes Dogs: Yes, I would like a buddy to pal around with! Likes Cats: Unsure Likes Kids: I should do well with older children My caretakers would describe me as: Social Dog-friendly Strong Upbeat Unless otherwise noted, all dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped prior to adoption. An application, home check and paid adoption fee are required prior to adoption. The adoption fee for adult dogs is $175 unless otherwise specified.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Batman and am a sharp looking little guy! Admittedly I am going to need a patient family to help me work out some of my quirks, but the volunteers at the Rescue have found it to be extremely rewarding when they win me over and I come out of my shell. One of the things I do that cracks up the volunteers is to stand outside and poke my nose through the doggie door to make sure I don’t miss treat time! I don’t generally get along with other male dogs, but may be fine with a female companion. I love, love, love to be spoiled and get treats. I like to be approached calmly and will stand very still to be petted. Like most dogs, I don’t respond well to loud noises or abrupt movements and can be vocal in expressing my dissatisfaction. I am looking for a tolerant and understanding home that will help me to be my best self. Get to know me today! Gender: Male Age: 2 years Spayed or Neutered: Yes Special Needs: None Likes Dogs: I don’t do well with other males Likes Cats: Unsure – leaning toward not so much Likes Kids: Little ones may make me nervous My caretakers would describe me as: Alert Feisty Humorous Eye-catching Agile Unless otherwise noted, all dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped prior to adoption. An application, home check and paid adoption fee are required prior to adoption. The adoption fee for adult dogs is $175 unless otherwise specified.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Bonnie and you probably noticed my adorable face and sleek, shiny coat! You also probably noticed I’m pleasantly plump – I put on several pounds after being spayed – so we’ll need a good diet and exercise plan to get me back on track. I am an extremely loving and sweet dog and would love to cuddle on your lap and bury my nose under your arm. I haven’t learned to walk on a leash or basic commands yet but am looking forward to working on these skills especially if some tasty treats are involved. I am a laid back and happy girl and would be a great addition to almost any family. Gender: Female Age: 2 years Spayed or Neutered: Yes Special Needs: None Likes Dogs: Yes Likes Cats: Unsure Likes Kids: Would probably do okay with children My caretakers would describe me as: Sweet Loving Gentle Happy Empathetic Unless otherwise noted, all dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and microchipped prior to adoption.
