  • Chihuahua-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Westmont, IL, USA

    SCRUFF

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). SPECIAL DIET REQUIRED DUE TO FOOD ALLERGIES. Introducing Scruff, a male, Yorkshire Terrier & Chihuahua mix (Chorkie) who is around 5 years old and about 16 pounds. This little guy has had some horrible times prior to rescue. He was suffering from severe skin infections, having lost almost all of his hair/fur, due to food allergies that went untreated by the previous owner. This poor little guy arrived almost bald, scabs and crusting all over his head, neck, and body - feeling absolutely miserable. In a month’s time, with a complete change of diet to no grain and no chicken, plus medication to treat the infection, another medication to stop the itching, and medicated baths to sooth his irritated skin, the little guy has had a miraculous transformation. He has continued to improve, with hair growing longer and fuller. He will require an owner who will continue his special diet and allergy medication. Scruff is a sweet little guy who is confident and out-going. He is living in a foster home with several other dogs of various sizes, all of whom he has gotten along with well; Scruff does want to be in charge of the other dogs even though he’s the smallest one. He is playful, affectionate, and silly with people and has been friendly to strangers. He loves to sleep in bed with his foster dad. Scruff will use pee pads as well as the yard for elimination; he requires a schedule to keep him on task. This little guy would love a forever family who will embrace this cutie’s silliness and special dietary needs. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, provided inoculations, dewormed, tested for heartworm and other parasitic diseases, plus neutered and microchipped. ADOPTION APPLICATIONS are available for electronic completion and submission through A Caring Place's home page - www.acaringplacehs.org A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue adopts throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area. All dogs and puppies live in foster homes, providing you as the adopter, with information on the animal's behaviors, needs, and requirements. We are always in search of fosters care providers. If you are one of those special people willing to open your heart and home to an animal in need and would like to receive information on how you can foster an animal, please contact us.

    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). BONDED PAIR - SEEKING PAIR ADOPTION Introducing LULU, a loving, 5-6 year old, 13 pound Jack Russell Terrier mix AND Ralphie, a 6-7 year old, 12 pound Dachshund mix. This pair was surrendered to A Caring Place when their owners were moving. The dogs are bonded - seeking each other for security and companionship - so we are seeking their adoption together as a pair. Lulu is a very loving girl who has been good with respectful children, and has good house manners. Lulu is initially shy and reserved but once she feels safe with you she becomes playful and enjoys your attention. Lulu wants to sleep super close to her foster mom - sometimes laying on her tummy/chest. Lulu presents her toys to her foster mom and seeks out play with her. Lulu has been very good with the other dogs in the foster home. Lulu enjoys walks and playing with her toys but while her foster mom is at work, she's snoozing on the bed. Lulu is a good little watch dog who will bark when doorbell rings or if she senses someone is near the yard. Ralphie is a 6-7 year old, 13 pound Chihuahua and Dachshund mix. Ralphie is a very loving and playful little guy who enjoys being with and playing with other dogs. He regularly bring his foster mom squeaky toys so she can play with him. Ralphie really likes to be held and will give lots of kisses. He is a great guard dog and will bark when someone is near. This little cutie enjoys playing in the yard but his great joy is playing in a kiddie pool when it's nice and warm outside. Ralphie (and Lulu) love to wrap up in their blankets for bed. Ralphie can become possessive of his person so he requires an experienced and knowledgeable adopter who will work to correct this behavior. Ralphie has been crate trained and is housebroken when kept on a schedule. These dogs have been examined by a licensed veterinarian, provided inoculations, dewormed, tested for heartworm and other parasitic diseases, plus spayed/neutered and microchipped.

    SAMMIE

    rescue
    Breed: Maltese-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Poodle (unknown type) / Maltese / Mixed (medium coat). Sweet little Sammie is a 3 yr old, male. Maltipoo (Maltese/Poodle cross) who weighs around 18 pounds. His owner died and her boyfriend severely neglected and quite possibly abused poor Sammy. Sammy needs time to trust new people, but once he knows you, he is very lovable and sweet. Sammy has been living in rehabilitative foster care for a while now due to trust issues including cage/crate aggression . Based on his behavior in foster care, Sammie requires a knowledgeable and experienced owner who can and will work with Sammie on his fears; he needs an authoritative leader who is compassionate and kind to him. His foster mom says that she loves him so much - and that Sammie is a very loving dog with her. Sammie really likes playing with the other similar sized dogs in his foster home. He enjoys spending time in the yard, but his favorite thing is playing with the other dogs. Sammie would love to snuggle and spend time with his adopter on the couch while watching TV or in bed. Because of Sammie's trust issues, we feel he needs a fenced yard for his safety. He is approved for adult adopters only. We know that this is a long shot, but we are hoping there is a special person or special couple out there who would be willing to give Sammie a chance. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, received inoculations, been tested for Heartworm Disease (negative) and has been neutered and microchipped.

    CHICCO

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Introducing CHICO, an adorable, male Applehead Chihuahua between 3-5 years old, weighing around 10 1/2 pounds currently. His foster mom says he is a very sweet boy who is a big kisser/licker who enjoys snuggling right next to you when you're watching T.V. Chico does really well with other dogs of varying sizes. His ideal situation would be a single person with no children in the home, or an adult only household; he would do great with another dog or two in the home too. Chico will need a quiet home (other dogs are great) that doesn’t have a lot of activity or people coming in and out because it makes Chico very uncomfortable. He requires an experienced owner who understands the Napoleonic complex that some Chihuahuas and other miniature dogs exhibit, and provide Chico with direction and leadership. His previous owner said Chico acts naughty around visitors. His foster mom has not seen any aggression with Chico while in her care, but she has a quiet and calm home. This little butterball loves being out in the yard exploring the sights, smells, and sounds of the neighborhood, just taking his time out there. His foster mom says he’s a bit challenging to get back in the house so she shakes the treat bag to entice him back in when he's distracted or acting defiant. If he thinks he's in trouble, the little guy will immediately roll onto his back and show his belly. Chico is crated while his foster mom is at work; he holds his potty until taken outside once his foster mom is home. He’d benefit from daily walks for physical and mental exercise as well as socialization. While in foster care, his foster mom has not seen Chico play with any toys. He will play with other dogs, though. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, providing annual inoculations, been tested for heartworm disease and tick borne disease (all negative), neutered, and microchipped.

    LUNA

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Introducing LUNA, a 2-3 year old, 80 pound, purebred German Shepherd Dog that is seeking a real Shepherd lover. Luna is a typical Shepherd - a guardian of her family, loving, involved, personable, etc. Luna is in foster care with other large dogs, whom she gets along with well. Although Luna is currently living with other dogs, she would be fine as an only dog too. Because Luna exhibits typical Shepherd behavior, we are seeking adopters who have previous experience with the breed. She is smart and would enjoy an adopter who will continue obedience training with her. Luna will need an adopter willing to take her for daily walks for physical and mental exercise. Luna came to us starved, neurotic with tail chasing and biting, and severely challenged with hip issues. Luna is now at a healthy weight and her tail chasing has greatly diminished due to inexpensive, daily anti-anxiety medication. Additionally, A Caring Place provided Luna hip surgery (FHO) to alleviate the pain she was experiencing due to what the orthopedic specialist believed was an untreated hip injury causing premature arthritis. Luna is recovering well and is taking joint supplements to help manage her condition. Luna deserves a wonderful life - one which he did not have prior to her rescue. With the medical care, supplements, high quality nutrition, and excellent foster care, A Caring Place has greatly improved Luna's quality of life. We now seek a knowledgeable Shepherd lover to open their heart and home to Luna and give her the wonderful life she deserves! This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian and received inoculations, dewormer, been tested for diseases including Heartworm Disease (negative), as well as spayed and microchipped. ADOPTION APPLICATIONS are available online through the home page of our website, www.acaringplacehs.org A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue adopts throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area.

    Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Introducing a total sweetheart, LouLu - a fantastic, 3 year old, 42 pound Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix. LouLu was rescued after running stray for weeks; she appeared to have been a breeder dog who was abandoned when she was no longer useful. LouLu was in bad shape when we finally were able to catch her but she has recovered from her trauma and physical illnesses and has become a favorite of our trainer. LouLu is living in foster care with our trainer to give her a "leg up" for an adopter. She has been learning commands, socializing with other dogs, and getting regular house manners. This sweet girl has been doing well with other calm dogs who don't jump on her or get in her face but she could easily be an only dog. The trainer has been exercising LouLu by having her run alongside him on a skateboard and she does great. This girl is such a sweet soul who sports an adorable underbite, making her especially memorable. LouLu has been great with every person she has met, and will even seek hugs from them. Please give this sweet girl a chance - she deserves an amazing family/person to call her own. This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, received annual inoculations, been tested for heartworm disease and tick borne disease (negative), as well as dewormed, spayed, and microchipped. Our ADOPTION APPLICATION is available for online completion and submission through the home page of our website, www.acaringplacehs.org OR you can request a paper copy by sending an email to acaringplace@comcast.net A Caring Place - All Breed Dog Rescue adopts throughout the Greater Chicagoland Area.

    MAX

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This very handsome boy is Max, a gorgeous Staffordshire Terrier who is a little over 1 year old and currently weighing 66 pounds. This boy is a total snuggle bug whose favorite spot is laying in his foster mom's lap or laying next to her in bed. Max is good with the other dogs in his foster home, especially a similar sized female with whom he plays. They are best buds. Max seems to be pretty mellow for such a young dog. He enjoys chewing on elk antlers, Nylabones, and toys - he hasn't chewed on household items in his foster home. Max really isn't interested in spending time outside alone; he was confiscated from an owner who kept him outside where he was living without shelter so he wants to be with his foster family and their dogs inside the house. Max is fully housebroken and is well mannered, surprisingly due to the lack of previous care and his young age. Max would do best in an adoptive home where there is a female dog with whom to play. He's not the best with kitties - just a little too interested in them (he's never hurt any). Max would enjoy an adopter who will take him for walks, play with him in a fenced yard, and continue with his basic training. He's a gem! This dog has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, been neutered, inoculated against diseases, tested for Heartworm Disease and tick born diseases, dewormed, and microchipped.
