Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Hi my name is Rhodie My foster Mom found me in the Road out in the country in Madera. I am happy she found me I was hungry and people kept yelling at me but no one stopped. When she stopped and opened her door I jumped in. Life is much better now. I know how to go potty outside. I like to play with my friends and to cuddle with my foster Mom. I walk well on a leash and I can sit for a treat. Mom is teaching me other things she said I am pretty smart. I am working on not chasing her cats it is hard they run I chase. I blame them. I love visiting the neighbors Mom takes me down so I can play with the little Boy. He is fun he runs around with me and gives me treats. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

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.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 185.00. This adorable young girl was picked up by County Animal control with 2 small puppies. The puppies did not make it and she was terrified in the shelter. She has been in foster care for a couple of months and is thriving. She is super playful, great with dogs, cats, all adults that have visited the foster home...she is a little on the shy side still, but warms up quickly and would do well with older children. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Jason is a very sweet and loving boy, but he comes off as very shy and cautious. He does warm up given some time and patience. Jason loves sun bathing and snuggling under his blanket. When getting ready to be fed he quickly turns circles to show his excitement. Jason does very well with older considerate children. The toddler age kids makes Jason very nervous. Jason has done quite well around cats. Jason uses a crate and does quite well with it.

Dear Future Mom and Dad, I can't wait for you to find me and take me home forever! The folks at ACT are wonderful, and I love playing with all the other little dogs and cats here at the Sofia Adoption Center, but I think I'm ready for a fluffy bed of my own. I'm just a tiny little guy, but I've saved up tons of love! I hope you're ready to be adored, because all I want is to curl up next to you and give lots of kisses. Get the leash ready, too, so we can cruise the neighborhood and meet new friends. What are you waiting for??!! Get down here and adopt me today!!
