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: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). COURTESY POST 12/10/17 They call me Zena or Zee-Zee. I was found wandering the streets of Philly, and ended up in a very noisy, crowded shelter, where the staff fell in love with me! Then the best thing ever happened - I found a wonderful foster home and am now ready for my forever home! I am a 5-7 year old black/brown lab mix with white spotty feet and a very cute and curly tail. I have big brown eyes that will seek your soul and make you fall into them. I LOVE everybody from big to little peeps. I am calm, gentle, low maintenance and 75 lbs of love. I make friends with other dogs easily and if they don’t care for me, I am quite ok with that - I will just move on. I do enjoy chasing those squirrels I see outside though. I guess that’s the Lab in me! I love, love, love my food and will eat most anything, I have been known to trash pick but now that I know peeps love me and are feeding me well every day, I have almost stopped this habit. I absolutely adore being outdoors and would spend all my days and sometimes nights out there if I could. I like to find a nice little patch of ground, nest it around a little and just lay in it until I am called in for more important tasks (like eating). I walk well on a leash, sniff at the usual things and pull occasionally, but I will literally leap up and down if you get the leash out to walk me – that’s how much I love it! I will miss you if you go out, but I will not whine and complain, I will watch the house and sleep on the couch to keep it warm for you until you return. I am completely house trained, no crate needed! Car rides are my thing, I could just sit and hang out with you in the car and tag along for any ride. I do have Lyme’s disease and have been getting medication for that (and am much better), along with some ear meds which need to continue to be monitored – well you can’t expect me to be perfect! I do require a fenced in yard please. My foster says I am the most easy-going, laid back dog ever, and would fit in just about any kind of family. Could I join yours??? All the dogs are Spayed or Neutered, Heartworm/Lyme tested, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, treated for fleas and overall Vet checked. Application REQUIRED. Adoption fee required.
