Character: Chihuahuas are very intelligent little dogs that are much more brave than their small size suggests. They often bond with only one person.

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.

      Location: Dana Point, CA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. ~~- I am a confident, curious, happy, independent 2-year-old black terrier with a touch of salt and pepper on my face. I am so cute that people stop to say hi to me. One person even compared me to a Jim Henson Muppet. I love kissing and licking my human. When I am excited, I hop and skip around. My favorite hobbies are sleeping on the couch and in patches of sunlight on the rug, playing with my ball, and going outside for walks where I excitedly greet every dog and human who crosses my path. I love other dogs and humans. (I haven't had a chance to be around cats yet.) I would do well in a household with multiple pets.I am learning to walk on a leash without pulling, and my foster mom says that I am doing a fantastic job.When my foster mom is petting me, my signature move is to lie on my back and show her my stomach. ~~ ***************************************************************** HAVE QUESTIONS?

      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dana Point, CA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Aurora is a beautiful dog with a loving heart! This sweet girl had a rough start at life but survived distemper as a pup. She does have a back foot that tremors a little so she doesn't use it much but she gets around just fine. She really enjoys the company of other dogs so she needs to find a home where she would have a canine companion. Aurora's foster family says she is SUPER sweet, very loving, quite gentle, loves people & kids of all ages. She is easy to walk on leash, no pulling, she just likes to take her time exploring all smells everywhere! Since she is part border collie she does appreciate a job to do once in awhile if you have one for her. She has a working dog heart & yes, Aurora can keep up just fine!
