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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lafayette, LA
      Posted Breed: Terrier (short coat). I know I was named Lucky for a good reason. I know I am lucky to be alive. A very nice man found me on Cameron Street, not a great place for a sweet guy like me! I was skinny and scared. He brought me to the vet and I got the works and everyone loved me. I am one year old and I love to play. The man that found me wanted to keep me so bad and I sure wish he could have. He named me Lucky. I thought about him all day and couldn’t wait for him to get home. My big ole heart broke when he brought me to Animal Rescue Foundation in April and so I am looking for my luck to change and find my family to love. I absolutely love playtime and since I am young I do need lots of playtime. I get along with everyone! So if you have kids or other pets, I will be the best brother to them. You see, I am a dog and I know that humans need dogs to show them that life isn’t so bad, so sad or so lonely. I have a special gift of helping you feel loved and needed and appreciated. Every man wants his woman to love him like his dog does, right? I’ll never say why don’t you get off that couch, I’ll just join you. I’ll never ask you where have you been. When you come home I will just go crazy with joy. I’ll never say I wish you made more money. I won’t get mad at you and throw a major fit when you leave your socks on the floor, I will just hide them for you. I just want to be a lucky dog and fill your home with love and laughs. I’ll take you on long walks, keep your feet warm and do my job of adoring you. Be sure to watch my video below.

      rescue
      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lafayette, LA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact judy.arfla@gmail.com for more information about this pet. Meet Flyer a handsome Lab and Boxer mix, estimated DOB 4/18/2012 and currently weighs 80 lbs. Flyer’s foster Mom says he is a big baby and he loves giving hugs. He is a shadow dog, and prefers to always be with his leader/person, and enjoys snuggle time. This big boy walks well on lead and would make a good walking companion. He loves to play outside with his rag bone and can also be a couch potato. Flyer knows all basic commands such as sit, down and stay. He is still young enough to soak up new experiences and is very eager to please and so much desperately wants to become a valuable member of the right family for him. Flyer would flourish best in a home where he has consistent rules and leadership. He is housebroken and crate trained. Unfortunately Flyer is not comfortable with bad weather, therefore cannot be left outside unattended. Be sure to watch his video below. He's at the top of his game, so if you think Flyer is your "guy," contact his foster Mom at judy.arfla@gmail.com or call 337-332-4756.
