TJ is a wild little man. He has an attitude and will tell you if he doesn’t like something you’re doing. I truly believe he knows lot of profanity and will use it. He loves to be in your lap and snuggles up to you in bed to sleep. He does have a problem with hiking his leg. He will go outside but wants to make sure his scent is on everything. He wears a belly band and is fine with it. If interested in adopting please go to chihuahuarescuemidwest.org and fill out an application to adopt.
Noel has had a rough start. She was hit by a car in a Walmart parking lot. She had surgery to repair everything. She has no complication from surgery or the break. She is very timid and scared of new people. She will not do well in a home with small children. She gets along with other dogs, loves to give kisses, is a lap dog and sleeps under the covers in bed. She goes outside to do her business, but also uses potty pads. If interested in adopting please go to chihuahuarescuemidwest.org and fill out an application to adopt.
7 lbs (overweight)
Tequila is a loner. He will lie on a dog bed all day long until he wants to be fed. Then, he keeps jumping on you till you feed him. He is not a lap dog. He sleeps in bed and will let you pet him. He will lick your hand but will not give any kisses. He would only work in a house with no children. If you’re looking for a lover he is not the one. If interested in adopting please go to chihuahuarescuemidwest.org and fill out an application to adopt.
Precious is such a sweet little lady. She does have a deformed foot most likely from birth. She loves to sit on your lap and sleep in bed with you. She is such an amazing lady. She is updated on shots and ready for adoption. Please go to chihuahuarescuemidwest.org to fill out an application. She is going to be a hard one for me to give up (I’m partial to the older ones).
Elijah is a sweetie who loves to cuddle and play. He is looking for a semi-quiet home, with or without a few SMALL dogs, and no children please, they make him anxious/nervous. He is between 5-6 years old, and weighs 8 lbs. House and crate trained. He's use to having his human(s) around most of the time, so he will probably have some separation anxiety, if left alone for long periods of time. If you're interested in meeting Elijah, please head on over to, Chihuahua Rescue Midwest http://www.chihuahuarescuemidwest.org/testimonials.html and submit an application.
Candi is a 10.5 year old girl who is suffering from late stage heart disease due to her teeth never being cleaned and a poor diet. She was going to be put down by her family because they were “done with her” so we happily took in this sweet girl. She is very spunky despite her heart issues and is quite the lap dog. She does bark a lot and we are working on house breaking (she does go outside easily but has a few accidents if she doesn’t go out frequently). She will need to be on pulse antibiotics for the rest of her life due to the fact her mouth is so infected and she cannot be put under anesthesia for a dental or spay due to her heart condition. She would not do well with children and she is not fond of new people at all. She can nip at new people when they come in so I hold her, or put her in another room. She will calm down after a bit but she is very wary of new people.
She may also require heart medications to help her heart and prolong her life although there is no “fix” for the heart disease. She is VERY loving to her family and will follow you all around the house and want to be on your lap. She is my daughter’s best buddy right now (she is 20 years old) and they love to sleep together and snuggle. She follows her around everywhere when she is home. If you love to rescue senior/special needs dogs, this is the girl for you!
We do adopt dogs to homes outside of the local area under some circumstances, but we prefer to have our dogs adopted locally.
One of our responsibilities as a rescue group is to be there for adoptive family, to help them with any problems or questions that might come up. We also require the adoptive family to sign a contract agreeing to return the dog back to the rescue, at any time, for any reason, if they are unable to keep the dog. That can be difficult to accomplish when the dog is living outside of the local area.
We also require a home visit to be completed before we can place a dog. Distance is a factor in whether or not the required home visit can be completed because we are a 100% volunteer run organization.
We do have volunteer contacts in many areas but some areas may be more difficult for us to locate a volunteer to conduct the home visit. Furthermore, we do NOT ship our rescues, all adoptive families would need to travel to the St. Louis, MO area to meet their adoptive dog.
.Lucy is an 8 year old medium haired Beverly Hills Chihuahua (actually from Beverly Hills!). She has been well taken care of her whole life eating high quality grain free food and has had regular vet visits. She is beautiful and the best snuggler! She would do well with older children or no kids at all. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and spayed. We will need to get her microchipped before adoption.
Pip is a loving, devoted, playful 10 yr. old pure bred chihuahua. Pip was adopted at 6 weeks, and has lived his whole life in a stable home with with a single human. He enjoys guests that stay long enough to get to know him. Pip is very fit, has a perfect weight and a healthy heart (that's his vet's opinion). He has all his shots and vaccinations and is neutered. Pip likes a peaceful home, without a lot of noise and activity.
Pip's lifelong human companion is moving into a residential facility where he cannot accompany her. As that human companion, I am reaching out to find a new home where he can share all the love he has to offer.He would do best with a single person or a couple.
