Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Rascal a small Chihuahua born in foster care. Uma his mother was left in a shelter very pregnant. We rescued her into a wonderful foster home just in time. Born 5 January 2017. He is friendly, and playful. Just what you would expect from a small Chihuahua puppy. Rascal is a cute tiny boy. We don't expect him to be very big at all. We would love for him to find a home that he will not be left alone for long hours. He is such a baby that he still needs care in growing up. We prefer a home with older children if at home. Due to the size we want to make sure he is kept safe. We hope that you will see him and want to meet him. We just love these happy wiggly puppies, but they do need a forever home. The adoption includes age appropriate vaccinations, worming, rabies vaccination, heartworm test (dogs over 6 months), spay/neuter, and microchip including registration. If you are interested please complete our online application at www.shelter2rescue.org Due to their size, we are looking for a home with no small children.

Care: The Chihuahua requires occasional grooming with a brush and comb. Trim claws and check teeth on a regular basis. Care of the long coat entails brushing 2 to 3 times a week.
Training: This breed is eager to learn, so don't let the small size deter you from properly training him.
Activity: Chihuahuas can typically get sufficient exercise by playing indoors.
Country of Origin: Mexico
Health Issue: This breed has a short nose and large eyes, which can cause some problems (e.g., wheezing, dry eye, glaucoma). They are prone to slipped stifle, gum problems, colds, stress, and rheumatism.

More About Chihuahua 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.

SANTA PHOTOS 1-4 at Petco located at 4001 W Green Oaks Blvd, Arlington*** Ruby made her way to North Texas from Corpus Christi shelter. Before the bad storms, hurricane harvey came. This gave space for those who would become displaced after the storm. Ruby did not have an owner. Ruby has been waiting patiently for her forever home. She has been to adoption events in Arlington. She has taken fun days with her foster mom to get better photos at a park. What else does she need to do? Ruby gets along with some dogs,and some she just isnt sure about. She would be perfect as the only dog. She is smart. She learns well, she would just get even better in her own home with her new person/family to keep working with her. She walks well on a leash. Smiling most of the time, or she looks like she is. She is a happy girl. Ruby gets excited to go and play, or go for walks. She is crate trained. Ruby weighs 65lbs, about 1 1/2 years old. She has been a easy guest at her foster mom's place. We think will not do well with cats. She is eager to please and enjoys her quiet time as much as her play time.
