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!

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: USA
      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.

      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Border Collie / Mixed. This sweet and faithful girl is Frankie! Aside from having a magnificent snaggle tooth, she is loving and devoted and enjoys to run and play with other active dogs in her foster home. She is extremely smart and knows down, come, sit and crate. She is excellent on leash and is a perfect angel in her crate, making very little to no noise. Frankie loves adventure and will wait respectfully for your cue. She would do best with active dogs her size although she respects confident dogs of all sizes. The chickens and cat living in her foster home don't don't share her enthusiasm for play time however. This girl loves kids! Older children preferred, as she has a tendency to get excited and will sometimes jump. Frankie prefers the comforts of a cozy home and would be an excellent apartment dog. Frankie is heart worm positive and has started treatment. She will need continued care through the remainder of the treatment. CAWS will fund this initial treatment. Frankie will need to be retested in 6 months and will need to take a monthly preventative for life. Her adoptive home will need to keep her relatively stationary through treatment so that she can make a full recovery. To be considered, please apply at caws.org. Her adoption fee is $150. She is fixed, vaccinated and microchipped. Please share her information! Thanks!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Peach is a happy and wiggly little 8 year old chihuahua mix. If you feel you need a little spunk in your life Peach is your girl! She often wants to be with her humans playing, wrestling, hanging out on the deck, or going on neighborhood walks. Peach enjoys the company of other respectful dogs but needs a proper introduction and time to trust them. Peach also enjoys the company of cats. Peach is a bit bossy with other animals and will bark and chase them if she feels they are out of line. Peach does well with respectful children but does not like being handled roughly so older children or an adults only home would be best. She has lost most of her teeth and will need to be on a wet food or dampened dry food diet only for the rest of her life and will also need to have regular vet visits and dental cleanings to ensure the few remaining teeth are well cared for. She does not like bowls as they make her uncomfortable but she loves eating off of her plate and uses a clear shallow bowl for water. Peach is potty trained and fully crate trained. She does well in her crate during the day when her humans are at work. *Dogs are not placed on a first come first serve basis. We strive to find the perfect home for each animal.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Meet Mr. Bean, your typical, uncivilized (yet strangely charming), Royal Chihuahua! Bean is 5 years old and weighs 6 pounds. 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?) Thank you for considering a rescue dog! *Dogs are not placed on a first come first serve basis.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Sweet Brandy is a beautiful 3-year old female Chihuahua that found herself in a high- kill shelter in New Mexico after the death of her beloved owner. CAWS rescued her and brought this little “chubster” to Salt Lake City. Brandy’s starting weight was over 13 pounds! Since coming to CAWS, she has been on a weight-loss/exercise journey, already having shed 3 pounds (with only 2 more pounds to go). This precious girl will do well in either a home or an apartment. Brandy loves, loves, loves to go on walks and is well-manner on the leash. She’d make an incredible hiking partner as well! Brandy is calm and relaxed in the car, although she does prefer to ride shotgun to be closer to her human! If she could choose, Brandy would be an “only” dog, but does fine with other dogs in the home that are on the calmer side. Brandy loves to be with her human(s) and has been dubbed the little “White Shadow” by her foster mom. This sweet girl suffers from allergies and is on a small daily dose of Apoquel, which is really helping. As for Brandy’s perfect forever family, they will need to give her space and time to adjust to her new home. Most importantly, they will need to commit to keeping her at a healthy weight and providing daily exercise. Brandy is a typical independent Chihuahua who prefers to be the “top” dog. She has not been around children up to this point, so it is best to keep it that way. She would most likely ignore any resident cats, given proper introductions. This pup is an alert barker, but other than that, is pretty quiet. She is crate trained to the extent that if you place her in the crate, she is fine. Brandy is a confident girl with a wonderfully sweet soul, who wants nothing more than to, once again, have her very own family to watch over!
