Tiny




Tiny is a ten 1/2 years old little guy who has had the upheaval of losing his family after ten years of loyalty and love. Well he is such a loving gorgeous "big" boy that he will be getting heaps of love and care here - not much room left on our bed these days!!
30th December 2011 Tiny has gone to try out his new home!
Darling Tiny has now settled happily in his new furrever home!!

Chokky



Chokky is the fourth of the ones to come into care due to her Mummy going into care. The youngest of the four and very overweight (by about 1 kg.!) Little Chookky has travelled all the way to northern New South Wales to her new home. Last reports (Dec 2011) are that she is simply idoloized and has settled very happily! Love you Chokky!!

Verini


Verini has come in to care as her Mum has gone into care. Gorgeous little old lady, has an elongated soft palate so coughs a lot, but otherwise a healthy little girl.

Toy


Toy has come into care, along with his three mates, due to his Mummy going into a care situation.
He is just gorgeous but scared.
Toy went to new home, however it did not work out, as he just fretted very badly for his playmates! So Toy is now back at the Chihuahua House.
Little Toy has been adopted for the last few months and has settled in really well, and is loved dearly! he is such a happy little fellow!

Kristina



On the left first days in care - such a sad little face. In middle "not enough room here, Nikki!". Then finally "OK Nikki, there is enough room!" Two photoes on right taken ten days after coming in to care and already looking a lot happier! Bless her.

Kristina is 11 years old and her Mummy had just been taken in to a care hospital and she had been fretting and very sad. She has cheered up a little now (two weeks later) and has started to eat, but craves cuddles and attention.
Kristina has a quite bad heart murmur but appears otherwise to be in good health, although her coat needed some attention. Her skin is still very inflamed from where she was infested with fleas. Flea; worm treatment; and a good bath along with some healthy food, not to mention heaps of cuddles and snuggles! and Kristina is starting to feel a little more settled.

Chihuahua Rescue closure

It has been many years that we have enjoyed doing Chihuahua Rescue, and we wish to thank you for all the support and help you have given to us to achieve the re-homing of so many little needy dogs, also to all those who have given monetary donations to help with the operations that many have needed, and to help with the food costs; to those who have donated food, blankets, bowls, and towels etc.; and last but not least, to those who have donated their time to help out with some of the chores over the years.
With great sadness in our hearts we must retire from rescue work due to ill health and old age catching up to us! Mayer has had several major heart and other surgeries over the last ten years, and Rita has been a type 1 diabetic on insulin for the past 59 years and is now experiencing some of the debilitating symptoms that many diabetics have in a far shorter lifetime on insulin. We are both very grateful to be alive and to have experienced all the love that many little dogs have given us!
We are eternally grateful to Mandy and Kristal who run New Beginnings Rescue for taking over Chihuahua Rescue and for continuing on with this wonderful work, not only for the little dogs, but for all the other animals they give a “new beginning” to!
Contacts for New Beginnings Phone 0423574266,
Address P.O.Box 67, Nyora, Vic. 3987.
We wish you all a fantastic future. Keep well.


Mandy and Kristal have set up a Facebook page - Melbourne Chihuahua Rescue - where they will be listing the Chihuahuas they are hoping to find homes for.

Susie



Susie is a very tiny white smooth coat Chihuahua, of seven years, but extremely frightened. She is eating and coming out of her bed to walk around the yard etc. but if anyone comes over she goes into her bed and keeps VERY quiet! It will take some time for her to accept you. More information as we can get them.

Pip Pip

Pip Pip has gone to try out his new home!
A gorgeous looking long coat Chihuahua but so terribly shy and timid, it takes time to get to know him. He is now allowing me to pick him up and pet him. Pip Pip surprised us all when he came out to meet people when they came over to see dogs, and these people were most impressed with him.
Will get more information as it comes to hand.

Pablo 2

This gorgeous (looks and personality!) little boy is now trying out his new home!
One look at this little man and he will melt your heart! He is a Chihuahua crossed with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He is just one of those little dogs who is so soft to touch and so loving and free with his kisses and snuggles! He is at your heel every minute of the day.
He is a very small dog of only 4 kg. He will be desexed, microchipped, immunized, flead, and wormed. He has been a very much loved family dog and would suit family with older children.
Just love the floppy ear! His price will be $250

Pablo 1


Pablo 1 has gone to try out his new home
Pablo is a gorgeous statuescue and playful little Chihuahua. He acts and looks very much younger than his 7 years. He just loves his toys and gets on really well with his little playmates. He had us in stitches when we saw him "toy in mouth; bottom sitting on doggy trampoline with front feet down on floor! He looked just delightful and wanted to "play". He is a very loving and cuddly little dog. This taking pictures when a bloke is tired is no joke!
He has been desexed, immunized, microchipped, heartworm tested, flead, and wormed. His price is $250

Chico


Chico has gone to try out his new home.
A happy little young 7 year old who is very amenable and loves to play and cuddle up with his owner. He would suit elderley couple/adult family and would love to have another little dog to play with. He is a very sociable little man. He is toilet trained; has been desexed, immunized, microchipped, wormed, flead, and heart worm tested. His price is $250
"Oh what was that flash?"

Anita

Anita has gone to try out her new home

Enchanting little lady of 6 years acting like a very playful 2 year old! Just loves cuddling and wandering/exploring around the yard; tossing toys etc. She is a very friendly and agreeable little dog. She has been desexed, immunized, heartworm tested, microchipped, wormed and flead. Would suit elderley person/couple or adult household. Gets on really well with other Chihuahuas.

Poncho

Poncho has found his forever new home and has settled in really well and happily.
What a gorgeous gentle giant and just so ready to be loved and cuddled and most of all settled with a new Mum or Dad. Poncho is extremely affectionate and is really quiet; toilet trained; loves his own bed but prefers yours! Not fussed about going for walks, just prefers to putter around his own little yard. Took him to our vet this afternoon and told Jan he is supposed to be a 12 year old. His report is that he is so healthy and his heart so strong he would easily pass for a much younger dog. Good hearing and eye are perfect. He has been heartworm tested, desexed, microchipped, and immunized with C5, and he is toilet trained! He would make a pensioner a perfect lovable little companion. His price is $150. Pensioner offered $100 so Poncho has gone to his home. Thank you Elizabeth - we have allocated your donation of $50 to cover the balance of the vet and bus fees for Poncho - THANK YOU SO MUCH - ANOTHER OLD DOG HAS A HAPPY HOME!

A phone call from Sydney - small Chihuahua Rescue set up has to find urgent homes for several little dogs. Naturally we said "yes" we will take them.

Thank you all very much. 7.30am 24/3 we were at Cranbourne and met four little angels, all home safely now!

Angel Two


This gorgeous, very tiny Chihuahua is about three to four years old. She does not like everyone and we are looking for a one person home for her. Absolutely no children or other dogs or cats.
Further information given to any one interested in her. She just loves to be groomed and cuddled, but only by the right person.
She does love her bones too.

Romeo


Romeo came in to "rescue" a few weeks ago. He was in shocking condition; dehydrated; flaking skin; starving; riddled with fleas and worms etc. His first two weeks were full on with treatments for all the above, and then he had to face his desexing operation! He came through really well and every day he gets a glossier coat and begins to look better and better! Romeo is toilet trained and requires very little exercise. Romeo is a very tiny little dog weighing in at a whole 2.5 kg.! He went to "try out" a new home with a very elderly lady who discovered she was not able to cope with caring for an animal, and this lady said he is the most wonderfully well behaved little dog. We thought he was a pure Bambi Chihuahua, but it is possible that he could be a Min Pin crossed with a Chihuahua. He is a quiet little guy but would not be suitable for children or other animals - sorry but he is a one on one little mate. His price is $250

Ceasar

CEASAR IS NOW TRYING OUT HIS NEW HOME!
This little guy in in very poor condition at the moment. He is five years old. Further news from Vet trip is that Ceasar has a slow heartbeat, 25/2/11 the good news is that the "slow" heartbeat in a tiny little dog is not unusual and is not necessarily a bad thing - thank goodness. These little ones live a lot longer than normal BECAUSE of the slow heartbeat! Could it be caused by aenemia? - Bad feeding?? - vet says NO. Both Ceasar and his brother, Romeo, have been left outside - and it shows! Both have very dry coats due to "outside" housing and very poor diet. They are the Bambi (or deer) Chihuahua with the long skinny legs.
Their elderly male owner is terminally ill and no family members wanted his dogs, so they are now safe and secure in "rescue" Ceasar is a little shy but approachable and will come up to you for a pat - soon that will be for a good old fashioned "cuddle"!!
We will be placing these little "brothers" in separate homes. When they were handed in the request was made to place them together - as they have spent their whole lives together. However, they do not get along together at all - and constantly fight and snicker at each other! Time for them to become individuals with heaps of love and care.
This morning Ceaser had heaps of cuddles and just loved it! We have started him on a dose of Nutrigell each morning and a Fish Oil capsule, so hopefully this will improve his appetite and coat.

Flash

Flash has been happily rehomed.
What an absolutely wonderful little dog with so much love and affection to give to someone!
Flash - because she runs everywhere - just like a flash! We are looking for someone who is home most of the time and has the patience and loveto give for this little girl, as she just craves company and attention - follows at you heels; lies down and waits patiently while you do the chores etc.
We believe she is a Chihuahua cross Mini Foxie but very small and stocky weighing 3.7 kg.
Flash does have (what we call) a small problem. Poor little girl is stone deaf and cannot hear a word you say. Vet check today 24/2/11 and we believe she has been born with no eardrum in the right ear, but has a defective ear drum in the left ear, hence she does hear really loud sharp sound such as a dog barking very close by. She is in excellent health otherwise and has come through her operation really well. She is totally toilet trained and is really willing to learn - if you can spend the time to get her to understand hand signals. Last night, just twice, I waved my hand "out" at the door and she picked up on that immediately. Flash's price is $250

Bella


Bella is now "trying out her new home".
A lovely friendly 4 year old pure Chihuahua. Bella has been desexed, immunized, and microchipped, wormed, and given flea treatment. She has very slight luxating patellas in both knee joints and this may need to have treatment in a few years time, but if her weight is kept under control this should not cause her any problems. Photo to come.

Chihuahuas

There are some pure Chihuahua's looking for pet homes. These are not "rescue dogs", but little ones who have finished breeding/showing etc and need to find a "forever home".

March 24th - only one 5 year old smooth coat female available now.

Give us a call and we will pass on the contact details.

Zack


Zack is going to fly to Cairns for his new forever home!
Zack is a one year old gorgeous little dog. He snuggles under your chin at every opportunity! Would be very suitable for an active family with one other young playful dog as he loves playing tug o war with the other dogs here. He is a very playful little fellow once he settles in, and will need someone to give him heaps of love, cuddles, and show him security.
He is desexed, microchipped, immunized, and vet checked.
Zack's price is $250

Lola, Rudy, and Marlena

MAY, 2010 all little dogs are now happily back home with their Mum!


On left are the three dogs and a "genuine" Chihuahua in basket at back!


These three little dogs are in our care for a little while. Their Mummy is not well and the floods have washed away their fencing so these three needed somewhere to stay for a short time.
Lola is the Papillon "look alike", and Rudy is the white with brown head. The one in the middle is a good standard sized Chihuahua who is also staying with us for the short term.
Marlena is the black Dachshund cross.

Davie




A pure male Chihuahua about six or seven years, very friendly, a bit overweight and a bit on the bigger size. Not suitable for children or cats or birds. Seems to be toilet trained. More details after seeing our Vets later in the week.

Janey


Janey has a new home to go to after her spay operation. Her name is to change to Abby Jane!
Janey is a Chihuahua cross (possibly with a Pom) possibly about 7 - 8 years. She has come from a pound so no information on her yet. She is quite friendly and is in poor condition - needs some good food and loving attention. She is to see the Vet in two weeks so more information then.
She is very quiet and just wants to have some cuddles and gentle time with you.
Janey saw the vet and was given a clean bill of health - very good strong heart and patellas low grade.
2nd March 2011. This afternoon we received a phone call from Trish to tell us that Janey has settled in really well. Trish had bought a lovely snuggly soft blanket and put it in a basket for Janey when the arrived home. Trish tells us that Janey went straight to the bed as soon as they got home, round and round, scratch here and there at the blanket, finally sat down snuggled in the blanket and gave them a look that seemed to say "well this is MY bed!"
She has been spotlessly clean; telling them when she wants to go to the toilet, and through the night she is using a wee pad - so far not one accident. All the family love her and she is being really well behaved with everyone! Greta nes, Trish, and so glad Janey has settled really well!

Angel

Angel is a pure Chihuahua about 2 to 3 years, very timid, and could be deaf. She gets on OK with the other little old dogs but not suitable for children. Vet check and more details later in the week. Photo to come soon.

CeeCee


A gorgeous lady about 18 months, toilet trained, and very loving. Hates cats but OK with very gentle older children She is a pure Chihuahua but a little overweight.
Vet check was all good. Cee Cee is the most loving and happy little girl; rolls on her back for tummy rubs, and that beautiful tail never stops wagging!

Pablo

Today we received this heartbreaking email.

It is with much sadness I am writing to inform you that my darling little Pablo died on the 29th of November 2010. It has taken me this long to even string a sentence together to let you know.


He was euthanised after developing a blood clot in his little lung. I have put together a little something which I am hoping you might post on your wonderful website.

IN MEMORY OF DARLING LITTLE PABLO

Darling Pablo,

You came into my life and stole my heart back in August 2009. It was love at first sight.

I miss you my darling Pablo-doo...you were my little mate, my soul mate and you will never be forgotten.

Fiercely loyal and true, we only had eyes for each other as we did everything together.

Whilst you had no teeth, it didn't stop you guarding your weekly slow cooked roast shank for hours on end...you had an appetite for everything, sweet and savoury.

You were a love sponge, wanting to be near all the time, only food could pull you away.

Gone too soon, I am grief stricken without you...my darling little Pablo-doo, oh how your mummy loved you...

You were my little heart beat and will now remain forever in my heart.

Rest in Peace Pablo, see you in heaven.
Giselle and Leroy

Here is our tribute to Pablo on the Chihuahua Rescue Victoria website, and below is a tribute to Pable created by Giselle and Leroy.
