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.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Queensland Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Meet Morticia, this wonderful girl came to ACT from the County Shelter. She was brought in on the brink of death. She had been horribly neglected. She was the sweetest thing even when she felt so terrible. She recovered wonderfully and is now ready for a new loving home of her own. She is sweet, smart, playful and just a treasure. She will be wonderful in just about any home. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Terrier. Our best guess is that I am a Doxie/Terrier mix. I was rescued from an abandoned church three years ago and was close to death. When my rescuers found me I was severely dehydrated and malnourished, I couldn't even move! After two days in the vet hospital I was on my way to recovery and am now completely healthy!! Now, I love to relax in the sun and play with the other dogs. I also love cats- my best friend is a cat and I follow him everywhere. I have been at ACT for three years now. I'm a little shy when I meet new people and may have packed on a few pounds. I guess that's why I'm overlooked. I'm happy but would sure be happier in a home of my own. {s3344code3031/} All animals adopted from ACT are spayed/neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption.

He loved his family and the transition has been hard. He is great with the other dogs and just needs a new family to call his own.

My foster mom says it's my turn. I am shy. I love to bat my eyes when you talk to me, but you have to approach slowly. I am looking for a home with someone that wants a wonderful companion, and is willing to allow me to learn to trust.
