At times, we may have some adult Chihuahuas available to pet homes. These dogs are fully up to date on vaccinations and dewormed, but they do still need to be spayed or neutered. We believe that people value things more when they invest something into them, and we want these beautiful dogs to be valued in their new homes, so we do ask a $250 rehoming fee for these dogs, but that money goes towards their spay and dental cleanings before they leave here. Most of these dogs are our retirees, but we may occasionally add a younger one that we kept but later decided not to add to our program for some reason. 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. 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 may be able to offer shipping for some 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 may vary by airline.
Adopting an adult Chihuahua
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 home. 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. For many dogs on this page, you can click on their names to go to their page on the website. If you cannot click a name, you can email Shayna for more pictures of the dog.
Peso is only 3 1/2 years old and he is ready for his pet home. This boy is the sweetest. I think he would love to be a lap dog, and he is calm and mostly easy going. Peso is fully crate trained and probably would not need a lot of work with house training, but may needs some. He is cautious at first, but once he figures out where he is and who is around him, he opens up to be a wonderful little dog. I think he will make a very good companion.
Sweet Jade is a beautiful lavender merle short coat female with gray-green eyes that have a hint of blue. She's very calm and quiet, and loves to have her tummy rubbed and ears scratched. This little lady is sweet as can be. She is cautious at first, but will warm up and when she does, she'll be the ideal lap dog. She is fully crate trained and already used to going outside to potty. That's not to say she'll be fully house trained at first. She may regress some during the transition, and she may need some guidance to get your routine and expectations down, but she'll figure it out quickly. Jade's birthday is Christmas day and she turned 6 on Christmas, 2022. This lovely girl will make some lucky family a very wonderful pet. She'll just need a little patience to get settled in and find herself in her new home. Click her name above to see all of her photos.
This is Lili. She's a very petite white short coat apple head who turned 8 years old in January 2023. Lili is quirky and funny when you get her playing. Her story is a little different. She was never really part of our program, but she has lived here for the majority of her life. She was my son's companion until he moved out, and by then she was bonded with my lap dog, but we lost him to old age a few months ago. She is very friendly with other small dogs, and more cautious with people, but she does open up given some time. Lili is potty pad and outside trained, but may regress some with the change in homes. She's a sweet girl with a fun personality and lots of life and love to give her new family.
