Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Must be adopted with Hank Hi Everybody! We are Hank and Leroy - two of the sweetest, happiest, most fun-loving little dudes you'll ever meet! To anyone who dismisses our breed as fussy and yappy, we say: Oh, puleeeese! That is so NOT our style! We never have a bad day, never meet a stranger, and never fail to make the ladies swoon. (George Clooney, eat your heart out!) We are big-time Casanovas and give the best Chihuahua kisses. If you give us half a chance, we will tag-team our way right into your heart! Foster Mom (the nice lady who takes care of us) tells us every day what sweet boys we are. We like the sound of her voice (and truth be told, we totally have her wrapped around our paws). We are each other's wing man - the very best of buddies. We even share a crate and a dog bed in our foster home. We get along well with other dogs and, even though we don't currently live with cats, we're sure we'd like them just fine. Foster Mom tells us that one day very soon, we'll find our forever home, where a special person, couple or family will love us forever! That sounds pretty cool! Because we consider ourselves “brothers from another mother”, we've decided that we want to stick together. We're hoping that “forever home place” has enough love and room for both of us. If you're interested in being our “forever home place”, please send the nice people at Frisco Humane Society an application. Thank you! XOXO, Hank (3YO, 10# black & tan handsome boy) and Leroy (4YO 5# red &; white handsome boy) For further information please email the address in the box to the right. Anyone interested in our dogs/cats will be required to fill out an adoption application. We do not adopt to anyone living out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. All our dogs/cats will be spayed/neutered, heart worm tested (dogs), FeLV/FIV tested (cats), microchipped; and current on vaccinations. We do not adopt on a first-come first-served basis. We review all applications received to ensure that the animal and the applicant are a good match based on our personal experiences with the animal. These animals live in our homes with us so we are familiar with their habits and behaviors. To fill out an application online or to find out more information about our adoption process, just go to www.friscohumanesociety.com and click on the 'Adoption Application' link. Dog/Puppy Adoption Donation - $165 Cat/Kitten Adoption Donation - $135 Some of our adoptable cats can be seen at the Frisco Petsmart Adopt-A-Pet cat center 7 days a week. Adoption counselors are onsite every Saturday and Sunday from 12-4pm. Our next Meet and Greet dog event will be Saturday, January 21st from 12-4pm at the Frisco Petsmart. The Frisco Petsmart is located at 3333 Preston Rd, Frisco, TX 75034 in the Stonebriar Centre near Tuesday Morning and DSW.

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.
