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: Miniature Schnauzer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Miniature Schnauzer / Mixed (medium coat). My name is Nuro and I am a silly puppy! I have lots of energy and spend most of my time looking for things to play with. My foster mom thinks I will be happy in a home with another dog that is larger than me because I love wrestle with my foster brother & sister. They are 55 lbs! They chase me & I chase them. I also love to sit in my foster mom's lap and snuggle with her. I love to play! I have to keep busy all the time. I'm VERY active and can get excited so I would do best in a home with older kids because I will knock over the little ones. I use the doggy door, but sometimes I use the potty pad my foster mom puts down if I can't go outside. I bark when my foster mom puts me in a crate. She keeps trying, but I really don't like it. She's tried small ones and big ones. Maybe I'm claustrophobic! I'm so happy when the gate opens! I love when it's time to eat so much, I have to go around and try the food in everyone else's food bowl even though it always tastes the same as mine. I will alert you if there is someone at the door or if I hear a noise. I'm looking for a loving family with another large fur baby to play with. Are you the one? If you are, please fill out an application and my foster mom will get back to you! ~ Nuro {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). My name is Buttercup. I spent some time in my life alone, roaming around without a lot of human contact. The problem is that I really, really want to love someone, but I am afraid. I don't bite or snap, but I can be hard to get close to at times. But when my foster mom holds me, I love it. In the last four months, I have learned to trust more and more. When my foster mom is sitting on the swing outback, I now crawl into her lap. If she won't pay attention to me, I climb on her back. I really like my people and I want them to love me back. I have also become the dog greeter at the house. Whenever a new dog visits, I am the first to greet them. I love dogs a lot!! I love to play with my friends. So if you are looking for a goofy girl that needs some tlc, then I am the one for you! {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.
