Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Chip has come to CARE from a multi-dog home breeder. He has quickly transitioned into a house dog and loves running in the yard, playing with toys, and sleeping in the sun. He gets along great with other dogs. He can be timid around people, but is learning to trust and accept attention from his humans. He is picking up on housetraining, and is quick to learn other house rules. He is crate trained. Chip still needs to have some work done before he's ready for his forever home, but applications will be accepted while he's being fostered. You can apply on line at care.rescuegroups.org. Contact the foster for more information. Update: Chip is getting very affectionate, he loves to cuddle and have his belly rubbed. Since he's still got a lot of puppy in him, he loves to carry toys around and chew his bone. He has received a clean bill of health from the vet and would love to find his forever home.

Character: Chihuahuas are very intelligent little dogs that are much more brave than their small size suggests. They often bond with only one person.
Temperament: This breed usually lives with other dogs and cats very easily. Children should be taught how to play with this small dog as many try to treat it as a toy.
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.

      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Petey is a loveable, cuddly sweetheart who is recovering nicely from a rough start in life. Though he takes a few days to warm up to new people, once he does, you've got a pal for life! He loves running around a fenced yard (as he's not quite a fan of being leashed yet!), relaxing on the couch watching the Cubs, and playing with his foster brothers.

Meg is a sweetheart that is great with kids and would love nothing more than to be a boy or girl's best friend. She loves to go places, is a good co-pilot and rides nicely in a vehicle. Her favorite pastime is to sit outside on nice days and stare at squirrels/birds - can do this for hours. She's learning some commands. She can "sit" and working on "lay down". She likes fetch. She is crate trained, house trained, up to date and just waiting for her forever family to sweep her off her paws! Meg enjoys snuggling, naps, and long walks on the beach.
