WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR CJ AT THIS TIME WHILE WE CONTINUE TO WORK ON HIS TRAINING AND BEHAVIOURS.
C.J. has now been with CCRT for two years and he is very comfortable here.
His foster Mom has been working with him to get him comfortable in stressful situations. He has decided that cuddling is a good thing and will snuggle under the covers with his foster Mom. He still prefers to lay beside her when snuggling on the sofa, etc.
C.J. now walks on leash very well and is very attentive to his foster Mom, watching carefully to see what she wants from him. Unfamiliar loud noises, outside and inside, are still very frightening for him. As his trust increased, C.J. also learned to respond to verbal correction. He usually comes when he is called.
His housetraining is much improved. He will do his business outside during a walk and most of his pees are done on pee pads indoors. Unfortunately, C.J. walks while he poos so even if he starts on the pee pad, there is regularly a little trail that ends up on the floor.
C.J. has just started eating meals with his foster fur siblings. He does not always get that he doesn’t need to protect his food but with correction (being a time out) he is getting better.
When people come to the foster home’s door, C.J. goes on harness and leash so that he cannot attack the persons legs. C.J. needs slow movements in the initial greeting with treats being given to him by the visitor. It take him lots of time to warm up but if given that time, C.J. will take a treat gently from the visitors hand. His furever home should not have young and/or high energy children or dogs.
C.J. is a barker and needs a house with a backyard to run off some energy.
While CJ isn’t available for adoption, you can purchase a sweater and/or blanket for him, or any of our other fosters dogs. Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters by making a cash donation towards their care.
I would love to adopt a chiwawa
I live in Cornwall Ontario
How can I proceed?
Thanks for your interest in adopting one of our beautiful foster dogs. You must start by submitting a general adoption application. From there, a Regional Coordinator will contact you and you can then establish a relationship with them whereby you will both keep each other posted on potential furry family members for you. This is the very, very best way to adopt a dog from CCRT!
If you have never had a chihuahua read a lot about them. We have two at the moment. And have had through our lives 3 more.
They are the most loving dogs towards their owners. Absolutely devoted to us. But generally not to others. They are not the usual pet that kids can play and caress. They bark a lot when they see/hear someone. Otherwise they are very quiet. So excellent guard dogs. We love them so much. But read so you know what to expect and not regret
I have a 15 year old girl and she is very kind to all people. We have had her since a pup and socialization is the key. Chihuahuas are wonderful little dogs who have big hearts. Our girl goes everywhere with us. She has travelled the world and loves when she gets attention from anybody. She has bonded more to my husband when we are at home but totally mine for car rides and shopping. She is a service dog which allows her to go out and she totatly enjoys it.
Is he fixed?
Yes, all CCRT dogs are spayed/neutered.
Do you provide transportation TO
Hi there – while volunteers may be able to provide some transportation assistance, approved adopters are generally required to pick up the dog from the foster home. Thanks!
Is C.J still available?
Yes, he is! CJ has been patiently waiting for his forever home and would like to know if you’re interested in adopting him. If so, you can complete an online adoption application here. Thanks for your interest in our special boy!
Hi! We are interested. Have two chihuahuas now. Siblings aged 3 and 1. We live in Newfoundland.
Great! If you’re interested in CJ, or any of our foster dogs, please complete an online adoption application form. It will be reviewed and a Regional Coordinator will be in touch.
