"Tammy" Dachshund/Chihuahua X- Female

The ideal home for Tammy would be a home where she can be an inside dog that can go places with her family. Tammy is a very good girl and there is nothing that she doesn’t like. ENERGY LEVEL: Medium to High, She is a healthy young dog that loves to be active and playful, but she also loves to hang out with her humans. FAVORITE ACTIVITIES: Running/Walking, playing with other dogs and hanging out with her human family. She has free range of inside and outside, so she will need to learn your routines, which I am sure she’ll learn, as with anything else she’s taught (any dog should be given at least one month to acclimate to their new routines and surroundings). Tammy can jump! And she is a climber, there is no doggie-gate she can’t jump or climb over. Special attention to gate heights will have to be required. She may act shy and guarded in the beginning. WHAT WE KNOW: Tammy was living in the parking lot of a high-school where students would throw scraps at her. She was very shy and scared, but once home, she became this happy, outgoing little dog that loves to play with other dogs and utterly enjoys her family’s company. She simply loves to snuggle and watch TV with you all night long!

"Betty"Chihuahua - female




10 years old- 7 lbs

Betty is a sweet older 8 lb little senior Chihuahua about 10 yrs old who loves being brushed and petted. She loves to cuddle. She loves to curl up in blankets or in a doggie bed and at bedtime she rushes to the bedroom to get her favorite spot which is a fluffy blanket she curls up in. She loves to eat so you have to make sure not to over feed her. I have to guard the other dogs bowls until they are done; she then checks to make sure every morsel is eaten.
She is very vocal when she thinks it is her mealtime or when she wants to sleep in your lap and in greeting you when you come home. She is house trained but you need to remember to let her out regularly. Betty loves everyone - even the cat.

"Gary" Chihuahua - Male

8 yrs old - 8 lbs

Gary came to Open Arms Rescue after a rescuer in Tijuana called us asking if we could help this little soul. He wound up at our vet in Mexico in critical condition. He was covered in lesions, injuries, infections and ticks, as well as having a badly broken foot. The vet didn't know if he would make it. Well a few months later and he is healthy and happy in a foster home in San Diego
The vet was able to mend all of his injuries and wound up removing hundreds of ticks from his tiny body. He had extensive surgery on his foot, including the insertion of pins. The pins have been removed and he is now ready for his forever home. He walks, jumps and runs normal.

"Opi" Chihuahua - Male

1 yr old - 5 lbs

Meet Opi (short for Opossum because he has a cute little long snout w/an underbite like a Opossum)!
We rescued him in the last hour at a high kill shelter up north. They were going to put him to sleep because he had a cold! So we scrambled to get a person in the last hour to go to this shelter in the pouring rain in horrible traffic conditions and just made it as they won't hold the dogs even if a rescue is in route! We brought him back to our rescue and nursed him back to health. He spent a week at the vet because of his bad bad doggy cold. This was a couple months ago so now he has put on weight, and it totally healthy and super playful. LOVES other dogs Must go to a home with another dog because he loves to play see video youtube.

His adoption fee through our rescue covers him being fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered. To learn more about adopting this sweet little boy, please go to our site at There is also an online application on the home page
