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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Filled with sugar and spice and everything nice, pretty Puddin is sweet and highly social when she’s in the company of other dogs. Happiest when playing and sunbathing outside, she’s less certain around people. As much as she longs to be petted and held, what this promising pup needs to trust and to bloom is the patient and tender guidance of a loving fur-ever home without children. Puddin's adoption fee is $275.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      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. 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.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Whether you prefer crunchy or smooth, our Peanut Butter is certain to please! Bristling with energy, this high octane puppy lives for activity, whether it’s romping and running outdoors on his own, playing with toys, especially tug with one of his foster friends, or puttering about in the puppy pool. Then, when it’s time to rest, he’ll seek out a cozy spot or a comfortable lap and swiftly fall asleep. So fond of his crate that he’ll often "put himself to bed", he may prefer to potty outside but he’s learning to use pee pads too. Now this four-legged doggy dynamo is dreaming of finding forever fun in an active adoptive home. Peanut Butter's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

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.
