Meet Chimmi!

CPP_300x300_Adopted-ChimmiChimmi was found as a stray and brought into an animal control facility in Illinois. The facility sent out an alert that they needed all animals removed due to “building issues” and Gateway 4 Paws rescued Chimmi and two other dogs. We think Chimmi is a Rat Terrier and chihuaha mix.  She weighs just under 10 lbs and is about 4 years old. She got to go to the vet for a thorough exam and then was spayed and brought up to date on all vaccinations.  She then got to enjoy a spa day!

Chimmi is house broken and gets along great with families.  She is happiest when she is sitting on your lap.  She is very polite because she waits for you to sit down before she jumps on your lap!  She gets along great with kids and other dogs.  She is very happy!  She will follow you up and down stairs or outside.  She will chase balls but is not very good at bringing them back.  She is NOT an alpha dog.  She is just happy to be with someone no matter young or old.

Chimmi will do well in any family environment.  She will brighten up your life.   

Gateway 4 Paws is committed to finding her a forever home.  Please visit our website at and click on adoptable pets.  We do require that you fill out an application and provide references so we can verify, to the best of our ability, that she is going to a good home.  Our fee for Chimmi is $175  which helps us cover our vetting expenses.
