|At this time, we have some adult females available to pet homes. These girls are fully up to date on
vaccinations and dewormed, but they do still need to be spayed. We believe that people value
things more when they invest something into them, and we want these beautiful girls to be valued in
their new homes, so we do ask a $150 rehoming fee for these dogs, but that money goes towards
their spay and dental cleanings before they leave here. Most of these girls are our retirees, but we
may occasionally add a young girl that we kept but later decided not to add to our program for some
reason. At times, we may also retire a male, who will appear here as well. Each of these dogs has
his/her own personality, peculiarities, likes and dislikes, so if you are interested in any of them,
please don't hesitate to contact me to find out more about them. Please be aware that we DO NOT
euthanize our retirees. These babies are not rescues or in need of saving. They are wonderful dogs
that deserve loving pet homes and have lots to offer prospective families. We would love to find
wonderful pet homes for each one, but if we don't, that Chihuahua will live his or her life out here
with us. We should be able to offer shipping for most of these babies, but we do reserve the right to
refuse shipping if we deem it necessary. Shipping the adults costs a little more than shipping the
puppies, and generally runs about $350, but it may vary by airline.
|Many people think that adopting an adult Chihuahua will be easier than raising a puppy, but
that is not always true. Yes, sometimes you will have an easier time with an adult making the
transition, but in many cases, adopting an adult is similar to adopting a puppy, and can even
be more challenging for a number of reasons. Adult Chihuahuas already know an established
routine, and have formed bonds with us. So, sometimes, it is difficult for them to change
their routine. They will form bonds with their new families, but it may take more time than
with a puppy. Also, even the best house trained adult may regress when going into a new
For this reason, we will be equally as picky about where we place our adults as we are about
where we place our puppies. You must be aware that you are not necessarily getting a
"ready made" companion with these babies, and be willing to put in the work that may be
required to help these precious dogs settle in to your family well. Believe me, these dogs are
well worth the work! They have tons of love and affection to give the right family.
|Yazmine is a blue girl with some white in her face. She turned 9 years old in 2019. This girl is such a
sweetheart. She is super friendly, never met a stranger and she LOVES to be handled and loved on.
She would be very happy as someone's lap dog. This sweet lady still has plenty of energy, and she
keeps up just fine with our younger dogs. She is not showing any age when it comes to that, but she
does have a nice calm temperament, and is just an easy going girl. She will make a wonderful pet for
some lucky family.
As with most adult Chihuahuas, Yazmine may need some guidance and help adjusting to your routine,
and she may need some house training help too, but she does prefer to potty outside, so it may just be a
matter of getting her used to your schedule and you getting accustomed to reading her cues when she
needs to potty. She's lovely little lady, and will be well worth the effort!
|Emmi is all chocolate with a white chest and some white on
her face. She turned 8 in 2019. Emmi is one of our more
petite girls. She is not tiny, but she is more fine boned and
less bulky than some of our girls. She doesn't carry any
extra weight, like older girls are prone to do.
Emmi has a wonderful temperament. She is friendly, loves
people and is pretty laid back and easy going. This girl will
be an amazing pet for someone. Emmi is crate trained, and
does potty outside, but she will still likely need some
guidance to get adjusted to your routine. She's a
sweetheart, through and through, and I have no doubt that
whomever gives her a home will love her as much as we do!
|Rio is a chocolate and tan merle boy. He will
be 9 years old in October 2019. As is true with
many merle males, Rio is a sturdy boy with a
handsome face and beautiful coat. He is a
quirky boy with a middle of the road
temperament, not submissive but not dominant
either. This boy is a sweetheart once he
warms up, but expect that he will take some
time to warm up. He will need patience and
guidance through his transition to a new home,
but he will be worth the effort.
It would probably be best to come and meet
Rio before taking him home with you, so I
don't think I want to ship him.
|On hold for Betty!
