Story

I have mental health and physical problems for 30 years and in the last 7 years I have discovered the power of Chihuahuas. I never thought that the breed was beautiful until one stole my heart, and became my shadow, my love and he changed me because I never feel alone.

Since I began my search I've found things that disturb me, and upset me, with this breed. I've met people where I live who have two or three and don't walk them! Why? That's not right ! Yes they are cuddly lap dogs but they still need to walk and play.

I have a conservatory which is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. If I could get that knocked down and convert it into a flat roof extension, with under floor heating, it would be a perfect place to bring in rescue Chihuahuas. I'd collect knitted jumpers because they do get very cold, its not because I want to play dress up.

I could maybe find rescue forms and start getting the little ones re-homed. They need people at home and due to my health I can be there and love them and feed them and prepare them for their forever homes.

So many people what teeny weeny little Chihuahuas, which a lot of people call "teacup". That isn't recognised & to try and breed from these tiny little mites, end up killing them & the puppies.
Chihuahuas are the most euthenazed dog in the USA. What's disturbing is that more and more are ending up on gumtree/dumped/and in rescue centres or fosterers.

I want to do some good for these little souls, but I need that conservatory changed into a warm permanent place for them. I have sofa's for them & a big garden. I can encourage people to come and help me. I'd like to continue to support them with donations of blankets and jumpers and toys. Maybe I can find a petstore to sponsor this. Yes its a big ask but I want people to stop buying an over bred breed & start looking after the ones in rescue centres.

I hope that you will help. I'll have open days & you can come and have cake & see how good they are

    I'm signed up for a few rescue centres and waiting for visits. to verify my home a safe place. The conservatory is not really the ideal place for the dogs to stay. Mine end up with me huddled with me under blankets, and it's lovely. Do you have any spare materials that could change my conservatory into a beautiful warm extension that the pups and dogs can lie in it. I'd love to be surrounded by Chihuahua's.

    Hi everyone. I am just putting this out here, Christmas is coming and I've heard kids and parents answering puppies and kitties for xmas. NO! I've already heard a few stories of people buying cute little pups and not getting them insured...NO! So many people think it's all cute. It's hard work you know. Cleaning up the poop and wee accidents on your carpets and furniture. They get shouted at, the kids will think that they are cute little things and play rough. If anyone finds themselves in this situation, please call me. Don't dump them call me

    Ok, so I'm waiting for my home check from the rescue centre and I hope to become foster mummy to Chihuahua's who have been badly treated or just unwanted. From my previous fundraiser I will be rehoming a puppy from a rescue centre. Two dogs had been brought in & 2 weeks later one delivered 4 pups. So next week is exciting. We do need to get this conservatory knocked down and a proper extension that will give the dogs more room, without the worry of them being frozen or so scorching hot. We want the dogs to be able to have space, to be warm.

    On the search for another Chihuahua for myself because of their sweet, caring, loyal natures. I've uncovered a network of people breeding & breeding then dumping mum. The prices are awful and rescue centres filling up. I want to have somewhere warm for them, toys, jumpers &love.
