Xochi (pronounced So-Chi) is not ready for applications yet. She still needs some more work on her eyes and teefies before she is ready. She is a 10-year-old and just under 4lbs. Look at her rocking that gorgeous summer dress. Her eyes have been clearing up very well, and are feeling sooo much better! Thanks to the vets at Northwest Veterinary Clinic for getting her in the same day! We now have a treatment plan for her eyes!! They were even able to knock off a huge piece of plaque from her teeth the size of a fingertip.
Meet Zeus, god of lightning and thunder!
Our old man Zeus is ready for his forever home!
Please note, Zeus is an old boy and has some medical issues, that due to his age and health cannot be resolved. He will need a nice calm home where he can love and cuddle his family for the rest of his years.
Zeus has the following medical issues:
Heart disease; which he has managed by medication
Collapsing trachea; needs low activity cannot be walked with a leash and collar. Takes cough meds to help manage symptoms
A foreign object in his stomach; vet believes to be a bone. Has not moved in a month and unable to surgically removed due to health.
Unaltered; he will need to remain intact since his health won’t allow for sedation.
While our statuesque boy is a bit of a hot mess, he makes up for it in character, love, and adorable naughtiness.
He will have you smiling every day when you see his toothless face
Wiggles lives up to her name! She loves to shimmy and shake, which makes photographing her a fun challenge
She is a little Chiweenie girl and is about 9 lbs and approximately 4 years old. She loves cuddles, naps, licking your face, and running around like a nut!
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!
