Boom chi-boom chi-boom, Chica Chica Boom Chic! This fun, silly song is the epitome of our fun, silly Chica Chews! She is small, funny, loving and full of herself!
Chica Chews is a 5 year old Chihuahua mix who loves attention and love. She was owner surrendered with her brother to one of our partner shelters in Bartlett, TN. She has an ear issue and has been recovering from Ear Margin Dermatosis where part of her ear did not survive. She takes daily medication to prevent this from ever happening again and is doing very well with it. It has also not affected her spirit or her ability to live a very normal life. She is a very lively girl who loves everything! She is such a sweet girl that loves to snuggle in a soft, warm bed, go for long walks and hikes and enjoys rides with the wind whipping through her hair. She is housebroken, crate trained, leash trained and simply wonderful. If you want someone to turn your heart and your whole world upside down than BOOM! Chica is your girl!
Name: Chica Chews
Breed: Chihuahua mix
Age: 5 years old
Weight: 19 pounds
Vaccinations: Up to date
Medical: She has an ear issue and has been recovering from Ear Margin Dermatosis where part of her ear did not survive. She takes daily medication to prevent this from ever happening again and is doing very well with it.
BASED ON OUR OBSERVATIONS:
Dogs: Yes. She plays very well, but like many small dogs, likes to be bossy at times.
Cats: Passed initial cat test. She is very curious but wasn’t aggressive. She will need proper introductions and supervision to ensure everyone is getting along.
Kids: Tested with 8 years and up. She loves children and attention, but has not been tested with infants or toddlers. She can get excited and jump up, so it is recommended that she live with older children as she is large and strong.

Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes. If you’re interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it’s still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS: Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
