Pippy is by far the cutest little Chihuahua on four legs...that is when she's ON four legs. Usually she likes to be in your lap! Pippy was afraid in the shelter, so when we were asked by our friends at the shelter if we had room for Pippy, our answer was yes! She was only about 18 weeks at the end of November, so this little pup is still learning puppy social skills. Sometimes the "big world" is scary. How does that look to Pippy? She may need a little time to get used to her surroundings. She is good with responsible children, good with other small dogs, and LOVES to play with stuffed toys. She's only about 4 pounds, but she can go through a stuffed toy like a little shark! It's not often that we have a puppy who we think will do well with adopters with a stringent work schedule, but Pippy may be an exception. She is ok to be left alone for a while at a time if you're okay with leaving a piddle pad out for her. She's doing great with her house training, too. If you're interested in meeting, fostering, or adopting Pippy, please let us know.
If you are drawn to smart, energetic, well mannered, and perceptive canines in small bodies, Trudy is your girl. She is young at little over one year, and weighs an easy to pick up and cuddle 5 lbs. Trudy’s favorite things are running, playing with other small dogs, beach walking, and hiking. She is perfect for a person or family that is active or needs to be persuaded to get out and go, go, go. She will learn anything when enticed with food and has already been taught good manners and tricks.
We recommend Trudy be adopted into a home where there is another small dog for company and play. She is careful with men, accepts some and not others, and we are convinced she would thrive in a home run by a woman. She does well with responsible and dog experienced children ten years and older. Leaving Trudy home alone during long work days is not acceptable for this energetic little girl.
Trudy is spayed, has a microchip, and is up to date on vaccinations. And one more thing, she is loaded with personality.
Zack is a very special little dog with a lot of love to give. He spent a long time in the shelter and can be a bit shy in unfamiliar surroundings, but has been adjusting WONDERFULLY to life in a home! He is great with other dogs, likes people and is being trained to potty outside (this will need to be reinforced in a new home, of course.) Zack is affectionate and snuggly once he starts to develop some trust in you, and would greatly enjoy having another family dog (or two!) to hang with. He loves his walks (traffic and other loud noises tend to startle him so a secure harness, and extra attention are essential when out and about), has done well at the small dog parks, and might be an excellent candidate for agility training as he loves to jump and run! We think Zack would thrive in a household that is relatively calm and quiet, with an owner(s) that is interested in spending some extra time with him developing the 1:1 bond that will help Zack to fully blossom into his best self! Zack is about 2 years old, and weighs about 12 lbs. If you are interested in meeting Zack, please fill out our online adoption form.
This is Chili. He is as sweet as his kisses and as habit forming as his chocolate-colored face. He's funny and playful and young; born in May 2011 . Chili is primarily Rat Terrier with maybe a little Chihuahua thrown in. He weighs about 10 lbs, with seemingly most of that weight in his short, muscular legs. When he walks swiftly he almost floats on air. And he does love his walks - and car rides, and running, and playing with soft toys, and chewing bully sticks, and playing with his people and with small dogs. He enjoys sleeping at night with his person, but will also sleep in a doggie bed wrapped in a warm and cuddly blanket. Chili is very good at coming when called. Want to teach him a trick? Do it with food. This boy can't get enough and will probably do anything for more food. He would be okay as an only dog, but with opportunities for play with others. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and has a microchip. Chili is a delight.
Honey Bunny is a 1 yr old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix. She is a sturdy 7 lb dog who loves to play with small dogs. Honey Bunny can be a tad shy at first, but she does warm up. She is alert & smart and is learning some basic obedience and some tricks. She can stand on her hind legs and wave with her 2 paws. Honey is an active, agile dog who might enjoy learning agility.
Honey Bunny is a sweet and affectionate dog who enjoys cuddling & lap time. She has not been around cats and children, but might be okay with older, well behaved kids. An ideal home would include another small, playful dog, or an active person, or both!
