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!!
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!!
Toy has come into care, along with his three mates, due to his Mummy going into a care situation.
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!

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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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!

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.

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
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.
What an absolutely wonderful little dog with so much love and affection to give to someone!

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.

There are some pure
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 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.

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.

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 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.
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.
