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: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Paula (pjstoppler@msn.com) for more information about this pet. Callie is a playful high-energy girl with an athlete's body. She is muscular, with not an ounce of fat on her. This girl keeps in shape :) Her favorite type of exercise? Playing fetch. She'll fetch anything you throw, weather it's a ball or a stick or a rawhide chew. She'll wear you out! Callie is a social girl, who has the biggest grin on her face when she's happy: her entire face becomes transformed in her "happy grin." Her tongue lolls uncontrollably out of her mouth, and her lips take up her entire face :) she looks like a goofy cartoon character when she smiles. Such a funny girl. We think the best home for Callie would be with an active family. Callie would be an excellent jogging partner, or your best buddy as you're hiking the North Cascades or exploring the Pacific Northwest.

      Dash

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Longview, WA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Paula (pjstoppler@msn.com) for more information about this pet. Dash reached rescue in a round-about way. He was rescued the first time, as a tiny 8 week old puppy - being sold at a garage sale for 5 bucks. Three little puppies were stuffed in a guinea pig cage and offered up for sale. Two of the puppies were immediately sold. An animal lover, and Good Samaritan, couldn't bear to see this little dog being given to any one that had a five dollar bill in his pocket, and although she had 3 dogs at home, she took this one, too. She still worries about what happened to the other tiny pups. It didn't appear that the puppies had been socialized very well. Dash was very shy, but once he warmed up to the family, everything was good. However, this busy family still had 3 dogs and this little busy Chihuahua seemed to require much more attention than the older ones. Reluctantly, with tears in their eyes, the family that rescued Dash from an unknown future, has decided that he would be happier in another home, where there is not so many other animals, and more attention is devoted to him. He's a big lover, loves sitting on your lap, and this busy family just doesn't have the time for this love-bug. Dash is crate trained; in fact. he looks forward to going into his crate at night; it's his man-cave:) He's neutered, current on his vaccinations, and will be microchipped prior to rehoming. He's now a friendly, happy dog, but still a bit on the shy side. He gets along OK with older children, who respect his small size and treat him gently. Dash is an athletic little guy; can jump and scale a 4' fence if there's something/someone on the other side that grabs his attention. A fenced yard is imperative. d If you would like to complete our Adoption Application, please do so!

Little Miss Molly has endured such a trauma the last few months. Her beloved owner died, and Molly was passed from one relative to another. Nobody wanted Grandma's tiny dog. And somewhere along the line, Molly was abused. She is now very hand-shy. She cowers and tries to bite when your hand approaches her head. She can be petted on other parts of her little body, just not her head. She gives sweet kisses. Just don't touch her head. Molly needs a patient owner and a quiet home. She needs to learn to trust again, that the human hand is not going to hurt her.
