Meet Ace & Audie – The A-Team!

Ace and Audie are a bonded pair of purebred AKC Chihuahuas. These two adorable boys are attached at the hip, and attempts to separate them for potential adoptions, have not gone well! They need to find their loving forever home together.

Ace, is a just about 1 year old (DOB 5/2/23) approximately 6lb, short haired Chi with beautiful markings, some say his facial markings make him look like a Boston Terrier a bit. Being the older of the two, he’s a little more calm and level headed when at rest, but he can (and does) still catch the zoomies, and wrestle with his “little brother”, and foster siblings like a boss!

Audie, is just over 6 months old (DOB 10/4/23) about 5.5lb, long haired Chi with magnificent furry ears! He is a total ball of energy, a total puppy! He rarely sits still, except when he’s sleeping or eating. Lol He LOVES to roughhouse with his “big brother from another mother”, Ace, and MOST of his foster siblings. (He’s not a fan of some of the older, larger females, as they will give him the “what for” if he is too annoying with his puppy behaviors, and he doesn’t like being bossed around. (Foster mom is working on this with him.)

They both have lived a pretty sheltered life thus far, and were not socialized with many humans, or other pets. Neither of them would do well in a home with larger dogs, or children. They would likely do best with one or two younger dogs, that are their size or smaller. OR just the two of them and you! They will need a lot of time, and patience to settle into their new home. Someone who has experience with shy, fearful, and under socialized dogs would be best. They will need an area that is just theirs, to decompress together, but still be able to watch all the goings on in their new environment. And somewhere that their new parent or parents can sit with them (no pressure, just be near them with goodies) for some one on one bonding and trust building. As he ages (they have been in foster since Superbowl Sunday 2024), Ace definitely seems to be more curious about new people, especially when he sees his foster siblings loving on them, but he is still pretty skittish about being picked up or carried. Audie still has some growing up to do with new people and animals. He will allow foster mom to hold him (not for long, cause remember he can’t sit still, lol) but is very scared and barky with new people and animals.

Foster mom is working on this with them both (starting with Audie, since he’s worse) by taking them on training pack walks with one of their foster siblings who gets along with ALL other dogs. He is making progress, but it’s slow.

I know that once they DO trust you, they are the most loving pair, who get SOOOO excited to see you when you wake up, or come home after a long day. And they are loads of fun to watch as they rough house and play fight, they’re great entertainment.

If you think your home is the right fit for these two cutie pies, please complete an application, and note Ace & Audie, or “The A Team” for dogs interested in.

We look forward to hearing from you!
