DOGS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Louie is a 8lb scruffy senior ((10+ yrs old) terrier chihuahua mix with adorable puppy energy. His tail wags a mile a minute when he gets play time and rubs. He is mostly blind, so it takes him some time to trust new people and new surroundings, but once he maps out a route in your home, his favorite thing will be to run laps around the house! He needs work with potty training, and would do best in a single level home. Once he gets used to a routine, he likes to keep it and will let you know if you are messing it up! He can get confused and scared out of the blue, and will sometimes nip when that happens. But once you get to know him, it is easy to spot the warning signs. He usually just needs to be reassured that he is safe, (and sometimes he's just "hangry"). He isn't comfortable up on the couch (yet), but his 2nd favorite thing to do is curl up on his bed by your feet. Mostly, Louie is just so happy to be alive and loved, and will hop up and down to let you know it. ?
Louie would do best in a home where someone is there most of the time and also patient and experienced with senior dogs and some of their quirks. Also no small kids since Louie sometimes with try and nip if startled.
*Louie is currently located in Los Angeles, Ca but can be adopted in Virginia as well.

Tucker is 3 yr old 15lb Chihuahua mix (possibly Min Pin). He is a absolute doll but can be a little timid and shy especially in the beginning. He is neutered, UTD on vaccines, but did test positive for heartworms in the past but has since completed his treatment for that so now he just needs to stay on a monthly preventative (heartguard). Tucker will need someone who is patient and lets him decompress in his own time frame. He has settled in well at his foster home, but he is still shy. The best fit for Tucker would be a low key...quite and calm home...he is not a good fit for small children, but seems to like older children (above 12). Also he needs a secure fenced in yard. He loves the foster family's cat, and has befriended him. Tucker has recently gone through professional training, to get him to come out of his shell, and be "ok" with a leash. He has started showing his "playful" personality", so he definitely wants to be able to "trust".
*Tucker is located in Charlottesville, VA.

Stella is a 3 yr old 13lb beautiful chihuahua mix who was rescued just in the nick of time from being euthanized at a Texas shelter. She had a rough start to life and used to be terrified of people but she has shown that with a little love and patience she is ready to trust. Once she bonds to you the connection with her is magical and she gets super excited every time she sees you, even if you’ve only been gone for a few minutes in the other room. Lol
Stella does good with other dogs and she knows basic commands and is easyily trainable. She is a silly little girl that is a true joy to watch as she comes out of her shell.
Stella needs to be in a home with a fenced in yard and other dogs or a least one other dog to keep her company and play with. Stella loves to beable to run around and explore with her doggy friends. And afterwards she will come in and grab her toys and roll around and play with them and then will bring them to her bed to rest. And once she is all rested up she will do it all over again. Stella has come such a long way in a short time and although she still is hesitant meeting new people she does come around once she knows you aren’t going to hurt her. Also Stella should be in a home without children or at least older dog savvy kids since she does tend to snap at kids when she is scared.
*Stella is located in Virginia Beach, Va.
