May 7, 2019: Adoption Pending!
With her delicate frame and distinctive eyebrows, Coco makes a charming first impression. This lovely lady is only six years old, but has spent most of that time in a puppy mill, where she had several litters in a short period of time. Needless to say, Coco is experiencing many “firsts” and is enjoying a new life of freedom and positive human interaction! She had dental work done April 3rd, 2019 and is scheduled to be spayed later this month. Coco will then be ready for her forever home!
She may not be a puppy, but Coco still has a few things to learn. She’s calm and gentle with almost everyone (including men, children and other animals), but she’s timid and will need some time to warm up to her new human companions.
A cozy bed to sleep in, lots of snuggles and long grassy walks: these are all very new to Coco and it can seem a little overwhelming!
This leggy gal is fully housetrained and will do her lady business outside, as well as indoors on pee pads. She’ll even race downstairs first thing in the morning and stand by the door to let you know that she’s got to go. She may need a small adjustment period, but Coco learns fast and wants to please.
She’s still learning basic commands and what the leash is all about, but she’ll likely continue to learn quickly. She just needs a home that’s patient, loving and willing to help her learn the things she never got the chance to in her puppy years. If you’re that person, Coco will reward you with lots of love; in the form of cuddles, kisses and her adorable, crooked-tooth smile. Coco hasn’t shown any aggression in her current foster home, although she will sometimes growl a bit at other dogs if they come near her while she is eating.
At night, she goes into her crate at bedtime, where she promptly falls asleep and snoozes right through the night. She’s a big fan of cozy, warm places, especially if there are nice clean blankets involved.
If Coco sounds like the girl for you, please complete an adoption application for her. You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her, or any of our other fosters dogs.
Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our foster dogs by making a donation towards their care.

Please send me information on Lovey Lexi when she has settled in. I am an experienced Chihuahua mom.
I have a male Chi 11 years old, and have had 3 others in years past. We lost his sister to old age before Christmas and he misses her terribly and would like another little friend

Hi, I am waiting to hear more about Coco. I’ve already submitted my application, spoken to Terry and watching for the right dog for me. Looking for an older chi to adopt who is healthy and does not weigh over 10 lbs. I am a senior and very lonely. I hope to hear more about this little girl soon.
We just lost our chihuahua today after 14 yrs of being with us. We are looking to adopt another one. We are a loving home my husband myself and our 17 yr old daughter. We are very common with this breed and know all about their needs, quirks and special personalities. Lovely would be a perfect fit with us. Please let me know about your adoption policy. We are well aware of a lot people getting them for their children at Christmas and it not being a perfect fit. Please feel free to contact me. So we can talk and see others you may have up for adoption. Losing my best friend is super hard but I know chico would love me to rescue another chihuahua and give them they same loving home he had. Thanks in advance
Please keep an eye on Coco’s profile and when she’s ready for adoption, it will be updated with instructions on how to submit your application. Thanks!
