Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Adoption Fee: $ 175.00. 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. 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.

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: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Online Adoption Application › Meet Cleo! Cleo is a super adorable lab mixed with a whole lot of other things. She is HIGHLY active and would do best in a home that can handle her energy and help her get it out in a productive way. Cleo is still young and still learning how to properly behave in a home setting so she will also need a family that is willing to work with her and help train her more. While Cleo is great with kids, because she tends to jump a lot older kids would be best. Don't be discouraged by her energy level though, once she gets it out all she wants to do is cuddle and be loved. :) If you're interested in adopting Cleo apply at care.rescuegroups.org

She's very smart and catches onto things very quickly, although she is still weary of strangers (men especially). She is crate trained and potty trained and up to date on shots. Breed experience is highly recommended as Lainey definitely has some border collie quirks. She will not be a good first time /starter dog and definitely needs a highly active family to keep up with her! A physical fence is also highly recommended.

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Please contact Lindsey (lindseydaugherty88@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Online Adoption Application › Sisters Poppy and Penny are attached at the hip, and need to be adopted together to ensure they have the best life possible at their potential forever home. They are approximately 3-year-old miniature poodles who had a very rough start to their lives, as they were found living in a wooded area alone, without much (if any) interactions with humans before coming into CARE. Their forever home will have to be one filled with patience and love! These two are still fearful of being touched and held by humans, but love to greet their foster parents with wags and kisses on the hands. They are crate trained, and potty trained for the most part—but it will be a new learning process as they leave their foster homes to settle into forever homes. The progress they’ve made in a few months is miraculous, and we have no doubt that they will eventually settle into their forever homes and learn to trust “their” humans.

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Online Adoption Application › Potter is an approximately 3-year old miniature poodle who loves to run and play with his dog siblings at his foster house, but please note: whoever adopts this sweet, playful man will require a reserve of patience and an extra dose of TLC. Potter and his poodle siblings were found living in a wooded area alone, and we’re not sure they had much interaction with humans before coming into CARE. Potter is very excited to see his foster parents, and wags his tail and yips happily, but does not yet want to be held. Potter would work great in a home with at least one other dog, as he loves to run after his two foster siblings and play with toys. He is very willing to go into his crate each night, but he needs extra help with potty training, as he’s simply afraid of new spaces and the humans that inhabit those spaces. Once he gets into his forever home, we have no doubt that he will eventually settle in and believe that “his” humans are there to love him.
