Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (long coat). Glowing silvery white in the sunshine, lovely and lovable Lizzie is one contented little lady. Although blind, she has settled securely in her foster home, has “memorized” the lay of the land and follows her nose (since the nose knows) easily and without incident to her food and water or to simply stretch her legs. Good with other dogs and with children, she’s a proven people pooch who loves to be touched and petted, and when she’s excited, her bottom wags as happily as her tail does. She knows her name and responds when you speak to her, but for quieter times, she prefers her own small space in her own small bed. At potty time, always polite Lizzie always lets you know, and she can either be taken outside or to a puppy pad instead. Calm and gentle and oh-so-loving, Lizzie will make some loving family a most treasured companion, and if given the chance and the training, she would probably make an excellent therapy dog. Lizzie's adoption fee is $150.00.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. We will only receive your application from our website www.chihuahua-smalldogrescue.org

More About Shih Tzu 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: Chiweenie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). With her pert pixie face punctuated by bright amber eyes and great coppery ears, all this perky pup wants to do is please! Although slightly timid at times, kindhearted Kimba is sweeter than sweet, and in the words of her foster mom, a sheer delight to have around. She gets along well with children and with the other dogs, frisking and frolicking with them, and often acts as "protector" should the playing turn too rough. Fully housetrained, and given the choice between her crate and her fosters, she chooses being with them, and particularly savors sleeping next to them in bed, softly and soundly, through the night. Now kindly Kimba is keen to find an equally accommodating bed in a loving fur-ever home. Kimba's adoption fee is $275.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). This comfy, cozy caramel cutie has no plans to follow in his namesake’s paw steps by pulling a "Houdini". A quirky little character, he charms his foster mom whenever she calls him by running her way, jumping in circles, then playing "catch me if you can." The only time he does slow down is when it’s TV time, curling up with her on the couch, then sleeping beside her in bed. He loves playing with the other dogs, is good with the children, is fully housetrained, and longs to get comfy cozy in a loving fur-ever home. Houdini's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      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 13 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.

      Location: USA
      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.

But Mr. Bo Jangles, fondly nicknamed Bobo, is actually an irresistible blend of friendly and fiery, active and affectionate. As committed as he is to loving and cuddling with his foster mom, he also adores playing outside with his furry foster sibs, and engaging in robust games of tug-o-toy. Progressing well with his housetraining (he uses pee pads in a pinch), Bobo now hopes to add some puppy bounce to a loving forever home, eager to groom him into the best adult doggy friend ever.

Dancing his way into everyone’s hearts, he’s as sweet as he is sassy, as active as he is affectionate, and as eager to learn as he is to please. He’s thriving in the company of the other dogs in his foster home, loves the outdoors and being in the sun, and has a healthy pup’s healthy appetite.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). His name may be Tiny, but there’s nothing tiny about this creamy coated cutie’s capacity for loving. A fan of both women and men, he LOVES being where his fosters are, cuddling up close to them and claiming the back of the recliner as his perch of preference. He loves playing with his foster sisters and brothers, and of all his toys, his teddy bear’s his favorite, which he happily brings to his fosters for more fun and frolics. Then when it’s time for the walks he loves, tireless Tiny heads outside, tail gaily wagging, and proudly shows how well he walks on his harness. Crate trained (he sleeps in one at night) and housetrained (his signal is going to the door and spinning in a circle), he’s now hot to trot to a fur-ever home as loving as he is. Tiny's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.
