This is a partial list of internet sites helping find forever homes for Chihuahuas. If you are looking for a dog of any size, your first stop should always be your local Animal Shelter.
Many homeless dogs—including purebreds—end up at these shelters only to be told later on there is no room or budget for them, which means their time is over.
The good news is that while local shelters seek homes for the pets they have, they also interact with other shelters. This means people seeking a particular breed, age, gender or temperament can tell their local shelter what they want. As soon as a dog matching your description arrives nearby, these shelters will call you.
If you are in the market for a Chihuahua, and your local shelter does not have any that meet your needs, consider looking at some of these websites. Similar sites exist for all breeds.
