We connect people who want to adopt or rescue a Chihuahua with people who need to find their Chihuahua a new home in the Miami-Dade area.
What We Do
Direct rescue & adoption of pets, from one good home to another. Rehoming a Chihuahua keeps them out of shelters.

Miami: The City for Chihuahuas
When you think of the Chihuahua’s balance and grace, it’s hard to imagine a home better for this confident, energetic pup than Miami Beach. These expressive but diminutive dogs are perfect for Miami city living. The Chihuahua's hallmark size and demeanor make them a great addition to growing families in the Miami area. Famous for being purse accessible, it’s no wonder why Chihuahuas make such great lap dogs!
The Chihuahua breed most likely descended from “Techichi,” a small Aztec companion dog. With love and loyalty in their DNA, the Chihuahua’s ancestors were bred to accompany their owners, and be used as “living hot water bottles” when injured or sick. You can find more about the Chihuahua’s history here, as well as breed information.
Most comfortable in a warm to hot climate, Miami offers a welcoming home for this south of the border breed. Known as an iconic shopping companion, your Chihuahua can go with you to check out The Falls, one of largest open-air shopping centers in America, where dogs small enough to be maintained in a stroller or carrier, or held by owner are allowed.
You can also find plenty of Chihuahua-specific clubs for you and your companion pup in Miami.
If you want your Chihuahua to make new friends, look no further than Haulover Dog Park, a wonderful canine-friendly beach with fountains for your Chihuahua to play in. Haulover Dog Park hosts the Miami-Dade Chihuahua Meetup, where your Chihuahua can play and meet other small dogs and have the park to themselves for the day.
If you have an eye for pampering your Chihuahua, look no further than Miami’s own Neo Pet Spa, where their expert groomers will give your little pup an amazing makeover and cut for their coat, with a complimentary custom dog collar included. Miami and your Chihuahua make a great pair!
The best way to save a beloved Chihuahua, or any pet, is to keep them out of the shelter system. Rehoming a dog or cat is a better kind of pet adoption, in every way.
Miami Adopters meet and learn about pets from the Guardians (owners) who know them best.
Miami Veterinarians examine pets at no extra charge as a part of the pet adoption.
Pets go directly from one loving home in Miami to another. Less stress. Less chance of illness or death.
