Check out this little guy!  A sweet red chichi, Chad is about 3 years old and weighs in at 6 pounds.  He is so 04_13_2011Sebrina Tingley4424incredibly sweet natured, a snuggle boy.   He does, however, have the misfortune of having a bad teeth gene.  Even at his young age he had to have an extensive dental and several of his teeth had to be pulled.  Poor little guy.  Whoever adopts him will need to brush his teeth, keep up with vet appointments to make sure his teeth are staying healthy and buy those chew treats that help teeth.  And no canned food!  Hopefully, with proper care, he will not loose any more teeth.

Teeth aside, this little guy is about as good as it gets in a small dog.  He is easy going, easy to care for, easy to live with.  He does appear to be housetrained but not so sure when the cold weather hits because he is so small.  One does need some fat to make those muscles work when it’s cold – if you know what I mean.


Chad does well with other dogs as well as cats.  He would do best in a home with older children simply because he is so small and can be hurt easily.  Chad travels well and is very adaptable to new situations.

Chad is available for adoption.  If you are interested, please fill out an application and email it to us as an attachment. Click here for adoption application

The animals in our program come from local animal shelters.  A local shelter will call us about an animal they would like to see go into rescue.  If we have space and it’s an animal that will make a nice family pet, then we bring it into our program.  When it comes to Chichi’s we usually can find the foster home space.
Chihuahua’s simply do not fair well in animal shelters.  They are small, easily frightened, they tend to be nippy or just outright bite when they are scared.  Shelters are hard on any dogs but the little dogs – it simply sends most of them over the edge. 

So, off and on we tend to have quite a few chichi’s.  Some are smaller weighing in at 3 pounds full grown – these tend to be rather fragile, and some are larger weighing in at a whopping 10 pounds!  Some are over the top pet therapy potential and some are frightened little creatures in need of a quiet home.

Why not foster a chichi?
