TailWaggers of the week: Manny, Conner & Chubby

Meet a few of the many great companions available at our local animal rescue groups: Manny, Conner and Chubby. This week's TailWaggers are from Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary.

Conner and Chubby

Conner and Chubby are a bonded pair of Chihuahua brothers. These 8-year-old boys are very sweet and friendly with everyone they meet (both 2 legged and 4 legged). Conner especially loves to be close to his person and snuggle, but both are very affectionate. They are crate trained, housebroken, and walk well on a leash. They are not excessive barkers and are very well-behaved pups. They are neutered, current on shots, had a wellness check, and had a dental cleaning/surgery.

Conner and Chubby's adoption fee is $180.

If you or someone you know is interested in meeting them, please contact Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary at


Manny came into rescue at the end of September with his brother. Both had to overcome some health issues before being ready for adoption. His brother Moe was adopted but now it is Manny's turn! He is a very sweet 9-year-old long hair Chihuahua. He is crate trained and housebroken, but still working on walking on a leash (he prefers being carried). He has collapsed trachea so he does have a chronic cough, but has been eating and drinking well and feeling more energetic. He gets along with cats and dogs and is friendly with all people including children. He has been neutered and had a dental cleaning and is current on shots. Please come meet this sweet guy looking for a place to retire! He adoption fee is $75.

Save a life

Most Tucson rescues are small, volunteer-based non-profit groups who rely on the community to fulfill their mission to save animals lives. Not only do they count on donations from the public to cover costs, they depend on people who are willing to open their hearts and homes to needy animals until they are ready for adoption. If you are interested in saving a life by becoming a foster, please contact one of our many local rescues.
