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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Husky / Mixed (medium coat). Guapo means handsome, and that's the one word that describes me best! I'm a big, good-looking guy with an adventurous personality. I would make a great hiking partner and couch companion! Guapo is about 4 years old and is just darling. He is smart and could learn just about anything. We do recommend Guapo with older children only due to his size and strength. He is just so cute and would love to meet you. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). This handsome guy is full of love. He joined us at ACT after getting a call two dogs were roaming an abandoned building. As we pulled up to the house we were greeted by Wally, his tail was in full swing as if he already knew us. He immediatly led us to his sister who had multiple gunshot wounds and could no longer walk . We carried both dogs through the broken glass and trash. He looked after his sister until the very end. We made a promise that Wally would never have to live like that again. Despite his past, Wally is still as sweet and playful as they come. He is thriving in our playgroup sessions, and easily adapts to different play styles. He would do well in a home with a female dog or a submissive male. He is welcoming to ALL people and is very eager to please. He knows basic commands and is learning how to walk on a leash without pulling. He loves playing in water and would make an excellent hiking buddy. If you are interested in adopting Wally please fill out an application and/or contact sergio@animalcompassionteam.com UPDATE 7-17-17: Brought Wally home for the weekend. Does very well on car rides, sits calmly in back seat. He was a perfect boy inside the house, followed me around a bit then took a nap while we watched tv. Did great on our walk with 3 other small dogs. Slept quietly in his crate all night. Took him on a hike next morning then a dip in the lake. He loved the water and being outdoors. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.
