Meet RIOT!  This character is a 3-year-old (approximate), male, 9 lb Chihuahua Mix.  Must say right off the bat - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dog!!!  He is AWESOME!!!  He SMILES!!  Riot has the most gigantic teeth that we have ever seen on a Chihuahua mix, and he grins and bares them all.  Soooo cute!  His favorite thing is charging towards you and throwing himself in your lap all happy, squirmy wiggles.  Riot is hilarious - thus, his name.  :-)  He is super cute and so much fun!  Riot has the happiest energy and a zest for life and literally makes us laugh and laugh.  He is playful and loves his toys!  Good, brisk walks or sprints in a backyard are all he needs.  He pulls a little bit on the leash, but he's still easy, and he is housetrained.  He is a snuggler, too, and just wants to be near you. 

Riot has some "Chihuahua" traits whereas he bonds closely with his peeps and can be a little wary of new people.  He needs a little bit of time to trust in new situations, so new people have to go slowly and take his lead / heed his signals or he may nip.  Once you get to know him, it is easy to read his body language.  He is such a positive, bright light full of fun and love!  Who needs Tony Robbins?!?  Riot will change your life because it will be impossible to ever have the blues again!  Fill out our application today!


If you are interested in adopting Riot, please complete an application. If you want to enjoy the companionship of a dog or cat but not yet ready for the long-term commitment of adopting, perhaps fostering is more your speed. Please read our foster FAQ if you are interested in being a foster parent or contact foster@lovinliferescue.org.

All of our Captivating Canines are spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested, and up-to-date on vaccines per their age.

NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is about a 30 - 50 mile radius from Chicago.  This is because we personally do home visits for every single dog / puppy.  Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time.  We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!
