Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Baxter has handsome ginger hair and long lean legs. Baxter is a sweet, gentle, submissive little dog -until it comes to his toys. He will snatch a stuffed toy out of the mouths of his doggie friends and run away with it. He is a known hoarder of toys. He wants them ALL!!! He enjoys eating, sunning in the window and sleeping on his human's legs. He has no sense of etiquette and will squeeze into any space he can find to sit touching his human. He loves to give stinky kisses and bark at strange noises. He will put his paw on your leg to let you know that you should be petting him. He is working on potty training. He uses pee pads and has full run of the house. He can usually be found dozing on his human's bed or in the window waiting for the return of said human. He is not the best on a leash but he hasn't had much training. He runs around his big backyard - looking for toys to steal and sticks to chew or occasionally a piece of poop to snack on. If you are looking for a dog who will follow you everywhere and give you kisses and adoring glances, then Baxter is the boy for you.

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: Pomeranian (long coat). Gidget is 5.5 years old. She was surrendered to a local shelter because her family was losing their home and they were unable to take her to the new residence. Gidget is severely overweight at 17.2 lbs. and she has luxating patellas (loose knees). This is very common in small dogs but it doesn't slow her down a bit. She needs to loose some weight and should be on a good joint supplement. Gidget has a gorgeous soft and silky coat. She loves to sing when she gets excited. :) Loves to sleep close to you and be petted. She will walk around on her hind legs to greet you. Housebroken, and will bark to be let out. Loves to play tug with the toys. Would do well with a buddy to play with. Gidget is a all around perfect dog!!! In foster care in Columbus, OH.

      Breed: Pomimo
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Delaware, OH
      Posted Breed: American Eskimo Dog / Pomeranian / Mixed (long coat). Reed is an absolute dream. Very loving and affectionate. He likes to "suckle" on his toys. While he plays with toys some, he does not like when they are squeaked. He has learned to "fetch", "bring" and "give" (still needs work on the give part sometimes) the small tennis balls. He loves playing with them. He walks well with a harness on. He will want to take off at first (from excitement) but walks very well when coached. He LOVES to ride in the car. He thinks he should drive......of course. He is super smart and loves to be brushed. His pictures make him look like a bigger dog than he is. he is mostly hair. Does require regular brushing but happily complies. He will allow you to trim his nails, grudgingly at times, but does well. He loves his bath only because of the towel dry afterwards. He is not a fan of being blown dry. Reed is a real heart breaker and he enjoys mostly just being where you are. I think he would do well with any other animals. Very fearful of storms and has to take medication for them (cost is approx $8 and lasts for a couple months as he doesn't take them often) plus Phenobarbital for seizures (Cost is only $11 a month at Walmart) . He has not had any seizures since starting his meds. I love this little man and he will be hard to let go but would be a perfect companion for someone with a moderate level of activity. He just wants to be with you. I have never crated Reed so I do not know how he does with a crate. He has never bothered my cats. Just a very happy, loving little man.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Delaware, OH
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). These BONDED Chihuahua x girls came to COPR all the way from TX! We are requiring a fenced yard for these girls. They are young and highly active, see their videos listed below, they love chasing each other around the yard and keep each other entertained! After they finish playing they enjoy nothing more than curling up on a lap together for a nap.   Ebony: around 1 yr. old, 7.8 lbs. Housebroken, she goes outside and uses pee pads, she does require a pee pad down to avoid accidents on carpets or area rugs. Friendly with new people, has basic training, likes toys, goofy, lap pet, playful, rides well in car, intelligent. high exercise needs, good with other dogs, unsure about cats, good with men and women adults. Ebony is high energy and needs space to run (FAST) and play, in her downtime she enjoys snuggling on your lap and is very loyal, she is food driven which helps with her obedience, but she does need to be fed separate from other animals in the home.   Ivy: around 4 yrs. old, 10.9 lbs. Housebroken, she goes outside and uses pee pads, she does require a pee pad down to avoid accidents on carpets or area rugs. Shy with new people, has basic training. likes toys, affectionate, playful, does well in car, timid/shy, intelligent, high energy level, high exercise needs, good with other dogs, unsure about cats, good with men and women adults. very sweet and loyal, enjoys snuggling with her people and likes to give lots of kisses, she can be timid in new situations or environments but will warm up quickly with reassurance, she and Ebony have a lot of energy and love to run (FAST), they play together most of the day but when they finally nap they enjoy being on a lap. From their foster mom: They sleep great through the night with no accidents. Will sleep in a crate, but they prefer to snuggle up in bed. Both do well on a leash, and enjoy a walk. Ivy listens much better than Ebony. Especially if there is a squirrel in the yard... I have to physically track down Ebony and pick her up to get her inside. She is quite the hunter.. Lol...a big personality in a tiny body, no doubt!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Skid is a Stunning brindle colored Chi x . Update! Skid is now totally housebroken and very social with women. He has warmed up to his foster dad with time, so he can be comfortable around men given time to get used to them. He was surrendered to COPR because his previous owner had too many dogs and was unable to care for them all. He is very nervous and scared around new people, it just takes him some time to warm up. He was not socialized at all in his previous home. He would do best in a home with another confident, friendly dog. Dogs seem to comfort him which isn't a surprise as his previous owner had a LOT of dogs and he had very little contact with humans. Comments from his foster Mom - Skid came to our family needing time and patience to begin trusting people again. Initially so timid he was afraid to be touched, he has gained confidence and has really starting coming out of his shell. Once he warms up, he is a loyal and affectionate companion that is happy to be curled up next to his person. Skid would love to meet a family that will understand his unique disposition and allow him the time to get comfortable!

      rescue
      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Delaware, OH
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). A home with dog experience is preferred as she does need an adopter who is willing to continue with her training. Comments from her foster mom: While Sally had been terribly mistreated in her past before coming to COPR from a shelter in Chicago, when she trusts, she is a different girl. Always wanting to be with her human. She likes to sleep with me and she loves to be wherever I am. Sadly, it has gotten her stepped on a few times. She will lash out if she feels cornered, so slow and easy is the key for her. She has such a sweet side to her, she will make someone an awesome pet....she just needs love and patience. We advise an exercise pen (she will need to be led into the exercise pen on a leash) if she needs to be contained while you are away. She does not like crates & she will "steal" things off of your coffee table to play with, she loves her toys. She didn't seem to know what toys were when she first came to me. She is very playful, but we haven't got the play together and fetch thing going yet though, but she will entertain herself with the toys. Sally has learned to let me bathe her, towel dry her, & she waits for her feet to be dried off when she comes in from outside. She has started letting me "clean" her face (eyes) off with a wash rag & has learned to enjoy being brushed. Usually when I’m brushing my other dogs, she will line up for her turn. Her biggest issue is probably in the picking up area. It's not so much the picking up as when you set her down. She will react quickly to protect herself. We don't know what might have caused this, but she doesn't like the being put down part. I have learned to lay her down on her side on the couch, floor, or bed and then she does fine. She will let her me hold her & cuddle with her & even lets me sneak a kiss in now and then. She needs soft, patient correction and an even voice and temperament when working with her. For some reason she has a terrible reaction to the word "NO", so I tell her uh-uh instead or use verbal sounds like "mouth clicks" to get her attention. It took her over a month before she would even wag her tail. Now her tail wags constantly. She absolutely LOVES my foster, Reed. She is constantly "grooming" him. Cleaning around his eyes and such. Sally is learning so much and has come such a long way with me in a very short amount of time. She just needs someone with patience and a lot of love to show her the way. Another dog would be great so she has a companion and would love a yard to run & lay in. She runs like the wind and has just about caught the squirrels....they like to tease her when she misses. She thinks she should drive also, loves to go places with you. I have taken her to Lowes a few times to get her out and about and she does well. A little cautious about others, but friendly to them. While Sally is doing very well with potty training, but there are still the occasional accidents. If I leave her in her exercise pen, she holds it & 99% of the time she will use the potty pads but once in awhile she "misses". I normally am only gone for about 4 hrs. before I come home and let her out to potty. She has done very well with this schedule. If I know I may be gone longer, I will put her in her pen.....much to her displeasure as she likes to be with everyone else, but she manages to hold out or use the pads if left there. UPDATE from Sally's foster mom - Dec., 2016: Sally has learned to do the toss and play with me. Just has to be done a little differently. I toss the toy in the air for her, she loves this game. Sally will learn, it just seems alien to her. She really has become a good girl. In foster care in Indianapolis, IN.

      Posted Breed: Pomeranian (long coat). Pearl was found wandering the streets on Christmas Eve. A volunteer with One By One Animal Advocates took her in, tried to find her owners (with no luck), & worked on nursing her back to health. She has now joined COPR, completed her vetting and she is now looking for her forever home. Pearl is the sweetest most loving little senior girl and deserves a home where she will be the queen of the castle. To know her is to love her, she adores everyone she meets and will lounge quietly in your arms or on your lap all day. Her coat is coming back in so beautifully. :) She doesn't have many teeth left and her cute little tongue hangs out the side of her mouth. Can't help but smile looking at her darling little face!!! Pearl has had a dental, x-rays, bloodwork & is spayed. She has a grade 3 heart murmur, but does not require any medication at this time. Pearl has some sort of rectal nerve damage resulting in difficulty with pottying at times. She is not incontinent, but needs to be wiped or assisted with defecating. We are working on diet changes to help with this issue. Please consider giving Pearl a forever home....she will be forever grateful and so will you! :) Pearl is eligible for our Senior to Senior program - Approved Adopters, Age 65 and older, will receive $100 off adoption fee towards adoption of any dog age 7 & older.
