Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Large ears perked, awesome Avery is packed in his picnic basket and ready to go. This is one handsome and happy fella who not only loves running and playing with the other dogs in his foster home, but loves curling up in his foster mom’s lap for the belly rubs he adores. He would even curl up with his feline friends if they would purr-mit it. But, sadly, they don’t. Eager to learn and to please, adaptable Avery is both crate and housetrained, and remains calmly crated while his foster mom’s at work. His reward? More of the playtime he loves. Good with children and adults alike, what amiable Avery would really like is to make his forever home one of smiles and sweet loving. Avery's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado. If you are interested in adopting this litte one, please go to our website at www.chihuahua-smalldogrescue.org and submit an online adoption application.

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.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). With her pert pixie face punctuated by bright amber eyes and great coppery ears, all this perky pup wants to do is please! Although slightly timid at times, kindhearted Kimba is sweeter than sweet, and in the words of her foster mom, a sheer delight to have around. She gets along well with children and with the other dogs, frisking and frolicking with them, and often acts as "protector" should the playing turn too rough. Fully housetrained, and given the choice between her crate and her fosters, she chooses being with them, and particularly savors sleeping next to them in bed, softly and soundly, through the night. Now kindly Kimba is keen to find an equally accommodating bed in a loving fur-ever home. Kimba's adoption fee is $275.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Whether you prefer crunchy or smooth, our Peanut Butter is certain to please! Bristling with energy, this high octane puppy lives for activity, whether it’s romping and running outdoors on his own, playing with toys, especially tug with one of his foster friends, or puttering about in the puppy pool.

So fond of his crate that he’ll often "put himself to bed", he may prefer to potty outside but he’s learning to use pee pads too. Now this four-legged doggy dynamo is dreaming of finding forever fun in an active adoptive home. Peanut Butter's adoption fee is $250.00. We do not adopt outside of the state of Colorado.
