Do you love cats, but are allergic. Or don’t you want to risk your furniture being scratched or shredded? Then do we have the chi for you!!
Tia is a sweet and gorgeous long hair black and brindle chi mix. We estimate she is 1-2 years old.
Despite being beautiful and kind, Tia is indifferent to people and pets. She, like most cats, tolerate her people and even enjoys being petted, but will make a stink about it while she side-eyes you lol. She takes a bit of warming up to people as she isn’t quite sure what we are still. But she loves to watch you and loves to spend time outside! She will need a special patient home looking for a chihuahua roommate.
She is waiting for her spay appointment but will be ready to go a week afterward.

The time has come!!!
Prancer is available for adoption!
Prancer has been with us since he was 8 weeks old, he is now almost 5 months old and is doing amazing. PRANCER IS A SPECIAL NEEDS DOG AND NEEDS A SPECIAL FAMILY TO MATCH. His current diagnosis is that he has hydrocephalus which impacts his motor skills and vision. He has been seeing a neurologist for a few months and needs daily medication. We are currently in the process of working with A&M to get him in for a complete diagnosis and determine if he is a candidate for a shunt.

Since he is special needs, we will need to find the perfect family who can physically and monetarily prepared to help this tiny little guy.
Now, about Prancer! He is an amazing 3lb boy, and even looking at him makes you feel special. He loves to run and prance but can bump into things due to his partial blindness. His clever foster momma bought his a large inflatable pool so that he can run around to his little hearts desire without bumping things! He loves to cuddle when he is not running and loves scratches and belly rubs. He also enjoys being held and getting kisses. He does also love his independence, so when he is in a running mood, he doesn’t want to be stopped lol. He still will pace in circles, and the more excited he is, the smaller the circle!
Estimated Birthday: October 04, 2019

Meet your royal highness, Queenie!
Queenie is about 2 years old and 6.5 lb, and she is such a sweet royal girl! Queenie also currently has Demodex mange, like our little Lourdes had, but is getting better every day! She loves to spend time cuddled up with her subjects, and loves to show her appreciation by giving you ALL THE KISSES!
She is still on a medical hold while she heals, and will then need a spay ones she is healed up 
The first photo is how she looked when she first came to our rescue the second picture is her after time in her loving foster home.

Happy Chis

Why are there only a few dogs here today? Ay Chihuahua Rescue can only save as many dogs as we have foster homes in which to place them. Opening your home to a foster dog, even for a short while, truly makes the difference between life and death for a Chihuahua in desperate need of help.

Can’t adopt, but want to help? FOSTER! Opening your home to an at-risk Chihuahua, truly means the difference between life and death for that dog. You supply food, transportation and tons of love – and ACR takes care of everything else! We are in desperate need of more Foster Families – especially those who are willing to take in young puppies and/or have experience with dogs rescued from puppy mills. If you are not training/behavior savvy, that is OK too! Ay Chihuahua Rescue has behavior specialists ready to help! If you are willing – we are able and together we make a life saving team!

Can’t adopt or foster, but still want to help? DONATE! ACR is a non-profit organization with no paid employees. As a volunteer-run rescue, every donated dollar is directly used in both medical and promotional support of the dogs in our Adoption Program! Your donated dollars ensure that all pets adopted through Ay Chihuahua Rescue are fully vetted and as healthy as we can make them prior to adoption. The Foster Families of ACR are truly wonderful, and this ensures your chosen dog will have had as much rehabilitation, training and love as we can possibly provide before joining their forever families!
