Posted Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer / Boxer / Mixed. Xander is an adorable Heinz 57 dog. He is a mixed with some serious cuteness and is a lovable goofball. Xander LOVES people. He is a true people dog. He loves to snuggle and loves being anywhere his humans are. He is completely potty trained. He can also be totally trusted to be left in the house unattended and has never been destructive. He loves to go for walks, but he needs someone willing to continue to work with him on his leash manners and leash training. He's making progress, but still needs work. He can get quite anxious and nervous in new situations or in areas where there is a lot going on and he needs a home that is willing to work with him through some of his anxieties. He loves to play with toys and run in the yard. Xander currently lives with 4 other dogs and would love a home where he can have another playful dog as a buddy and playmate. He would do best in a home with no kids or older kids, as he does dart through open doors and has been known to take himself on little field trips around the neighborhood if given the chance to escape through the front door. Xander is a smart boy, and he needs a secure yard where he will not be left unattended. If given enough time alone, Xander will figure out how to escape from most fences. He particularly knows how to climb a chain link fence or get through a wooden fence if given the opportunity and is not being watched. A home with a tall vinyl fence would be ideal for him, and the yard must be secure. Even at his age, Xander has a lot of energy and needs a home that will keep him active with daily walks, runs, and/or play time with a canine buddy. Xander is very good in the house and is generally pretty quiet, but can be a bit barky when the doorbell rings. He has a great "off" switch and loves to snuggle with his people whenever possible. Xander must be in a home with NO cats! He finds them way too tempting to not chase them and try to get them. Xander is a happy, go-lucky, cheerful dog and he has such a sweet, gentle nature to him. He's one of the sweetest dogs you'll ever meet and is waiting patiently for his perfect forever home! Xander goes to Train Walk Poop & for daycare & training & he does great!If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at http://caws.org/html/adoption_application.html

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Salt Lake City, UT
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Hi, I’m Blu and I am 12 years old. I’m a long-legged 8-pound shiny black male Chi. I’m very sweet, but need a little time to feel totally safe with you. I do love to be gently scratched on the back of my neck and will tap you with my foot for a rub. I love my human(s) so very much! I’m generally very protective of my home, so when you have workmen there, just pick me up and hold me so that I know you are in charge (not me). I am a very confident boy and am fine with weather-related sounds. Even though I don’t have many teeth (only 3 molars on the bottom), I still a good eater and like dry food with a little water added. For my perfect family, I need to be in a quieter household. I’d be great as an “only” dog or with other CALM dog(s). I’m completely house trained and crate trained. I currently sleep in my foster mom’s bed at night, but am in no way a bed hog. I’m still very spry (and playful), but I will need stairs or a cube to get on/off your bed. I don’t bark in the yard, but I do alert bark at the evil postman or whoever comes knocking (again, just pick me up)! I can live anywhere; I will just need to learn to do my business on a leash if you don’t have a fenced yard. And by the way, I have very nice leash manners. In the spirit of transparency, I do have a Level 4 heart murmur. It really doesn’t bother me. CAWS had an ultra-sound done and test results showed that my heart is still strong and I’m as adoptable as any other dog. I just recently started taking daily doses of inexpensive heart medication to ensure my heart remains strong. Won’t you overlook this small medical condition and pick me? I am a sweet older gentleman, with a huge personality, looking for my very own calm family to watch over.If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at http://caws.org/html/adoption_application.html

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Kemp, aka "Cheewoowoo" is a 6 year old Chihuahua who loves his people. He loves to squish next to them and snuggle. He even wraps his neck across them to show how much he cares. Cheewoowoo is a happy little guy that loves to go for walks and rides in the car. He's a pretty good walker, and walks daily with his foster family. He has no problem keeping up. Cheewoowoo is very vocal and growls sometimes. He even does it when he's getting a head rub. He can get a bit crabby though so young children are best off not around him.... although he does not dislike them. He has an eleven year old human foster sister that he absolutely adores. He sits next to her and sleeps in her bed. At night he pulls a blanket over himself and drifts off to sleep. Cats are a little too interesting to him so he needs a home without them. Kemp is fine with other dogs, but since he's so people oriented, he doesn't need a dog brother or sister. Kemp will be your best friend for life, give you daily hugs, and keep you company:)If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at http://caws.org/html/adoption_application.html

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Salt Lake City, UT
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Chihuahua / Mixed. Tootsie is a tall, slender, 7 to 8 lb. chihuahua mix. Between this girl's intelligence and her sleek frame, she is quite a Houdini at getting in and out of everything. She will need to go to a home with a fenced yard to roam around in. When she first came to us, Tootsie was a very frightened little girl, but the world is quickly opening up to her. She does very well with other dogs who are gentle and calm, and the dogs in her foster home are helping to show her the ropes. She is learning to run and play with the pack as she becomes more and more comfortable in her surroundings. She is also working on her house breaking skills, and with her smarts, she's picking up on everything faster than the average pooch. She would do best in a home without small children, as she doesn't care for fast movements or commotion. Tootsie is very shy and timid, so she will need someone who is willing to be patient with her and let her warm up slowly. Once she knows she is in a safe place, she is nothing but sweetness and affection. Tootsie's a lover not a barker, and she displays perfect manners when being carried around by her foster parents in public. Right now, the world is her oyster, and she's enjoying all of the new experiences it has to offer. All she needs is a loving owner to take her paws and be her guide.If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at http://caws.org/html/adoption_application.html

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Shepherd / Mixed. Shy Eddy may not have had the most rewarding beginning. It is hard for him to trust, and consequently he can be very shy and scared. He has had to learn how to defend himself against the world and now needs someone to help him learn to trust again. He puts on a brave face at first, but that is not the real Eddy – he is actually terrified that someone might hurt him, so he keeps them at a distance. Eddy is quite the ladies man! Go ahead and play a little hard to get and he will be intrigued! He may even try to crawl into your lap to give you kisses! Guys arent nearly as much fun for this shy guy – he finds them to be rather intimidating and scary. Once he knows you, he is an amazing little friend! When he is comfortable he loves to chase toys, sniff things, and be like every other dog. Eddy would love to be in a nice mellow home where he can relax. Relaxing is almost as important as playing for this guys well being! He needs to know that he is safe and that he has a confident and quiet leader to help him see that the world isnt such a bad place and that people can be fun!If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at http://caws.org/html/adoption_application.html

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Meet Mr. Bean, your typical, uncivilized (yet strangely charming), Royal Chihuahua! Bean is looking for a calm and quiet home with minimal to no traffic. He thinks other dogs (big and small) are quite the bother and would prefer to banish them from his existence. He is very much a ladies man and will go to the ends of the earth to protect his precious maiden. Once he has the preferred Bean-defined time to learn the love language of his person he is fiercely loyal! He asks this of his potential adopter- Do you have a quiet palace where he can reside undisturbed and peacefully? Will he be the ONLY apple of your eye? Due to his royal status he will require time to become comfortable with sharing space, will you have the patience? (Bean has likely been an only dog in his past home and has not had much if any socialization. He prefers women over men and does not enjoy other dogs. He will need a quiet place, with extra time to warm up and adjust, where there is minimal or no people traffic. No children and preferably someone who is home most of the day. He is a special dog who will need a special home. Would that happen to be you and your home? To be considered, please complete our adoption application online at caws.org. He is fixed, microchipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee is $150.)
