My name is Caviar I am a chihuahua/daschund mix. I am full of energy and love to run around an chase balls and squeaky toys. I love to play with other dogs, and I’m very interested about the cats, so far I leave them alone. I love to cuddle and be held, sometimes I will sit on my foster moms shoulder when she sits on the couch. I’m working on potty training and do great with pee pads, but the great Chicago weather has not cooperated for me to be consistent with potty training. If you love to play and have a small dog I am your guy!! Looking for my forever new family to love!!

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $350.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $300.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $250.
