Weight (lbs): 6
Height (in): 6-9
Colors: Any.
Coat: Smooth with soft, glossy hair or long with soft straight or wavy coat and fringed ears.
Character: Chihuahuas are very intelligent little dogs that are much more brave than their small size suggests. They often bond with only one person.
Temperament: This breed usually lives with other dogs and cats very easily. Children should be taught how to play with this small dog as many try to treat it as a toy.
Care: The Chihuahua requires occasional grooming with a brush and comb. Trim claws and check teeth on a regular basis. Care of the long coat entails brushing 2 to 3 times a week.
Training: This breed is eager to learn, so don't let the small size deter you from properly training him.
Activity: Chihuahuas can typically get sufficient exercise by playing indoors.
Country of Origin: Mexico
Health Issue: This breed has a short nose and large eyes, which can cause some problems (e.g., wheezing, dry eye, glaucoma). They are prone to slipped stifle, gum problems, colds, stress, and rheumatism.

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.

I made money for her but she did not want to spend money on keeping me healthy. I am 9 years old and heartworm positive. When the vet saw me the first time he discovered I had a collapsed trachea, urinary tract infections, bad teeth, two floating patella's and of course heartworm positive. Currently I am not spayed but will be once I am healthier. I am on medicine now to get me on the road to being healthy. I will be reevaluated in 14 days and in 30 days. Then we will start heartworm treatment and get me spayed. I am very sweet. I love being in air conditioning instead of outside with only trees to provide shade. I am good with other dogs. I love to sit next to a person and watch TV. Well actually I take a nap with the human watches TV. If you have room in your heart and in your air conditioned house to take my little 9 lbs being in then fill out an applications.

      Posted Breed: Maltese (medium coat). Hi I'm Ryder, I am a senior Maltese around 10 lbs and 12 years young! I was a stray that was rescued from a rural kill shelter by a good samaritan and now am loving life with my foster mom who gives me plenty of food and treats! Yum! I get along great with other dogs and also cats. I love people too! I'm a pretty easy going guy, I like to nap a lot and when I'm awake I like to wander in the backyard, wag my tail and give lots of kisses. I am not fully housebroken but I am working on that. I don't have the greatest hearing and my balance is a little off sometimes, I also have a grade 4 heart murmur along with some lumps and growths here and there but I don't let that get me down, life's too short to dwell on the negative when you can still wag your tail! So basically, I'm looking for a forever home that will give me a warm bed to snuggle in and plenty of love and cuddles for whatever time I have left. If that is you - let me know!

      Posted Breed: Terrier (short coat). Hi, my name is Magic and I am approximately one and half years old. I am a terrier mix who had a rough start in life! I came to S.A.F.E. with a skin condition but that cleared up with good food. I am adjusting to being a part of a family due to my previous life where I did not receive a lot of attention. I love people and other dogs but I am very skittish at this time. I am making baby steps to enjoying my new life and my new surroundings. I am very playful with the other dogs in the home and I will seek attention from my foster family but little things still startle and scare me. S.A.F.E.has placed me in their Guardian Angel Program until I am ready for a forever family. The Guardian Angel Program supports dogs like me who are not quite ready for a forever home but we are working on our issues. You can sponsor me by sending donations to S.A.F.E.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed. 10/9/11 Dan continues to make strides. He still prefers to be left alone but is starting to let us pet him. He knows his job is to keep the yard safe from predators like the UPS man and the squirrels. Of course if anyone came near him he would tuck his tail and run away. He is crate trained but loves being loss in the house curled up on a dog bed or couch if available. Dan will need a fenced in yard to make him feel safe. He promises he will keep the yard safe for you as well. Dan has been in foster care for several years and deserves to have someone give him a chance. 6/22/11 - Dan is doing better. He is a handsome dog that is still leery of people. He will approach humans on his own terms. He is not trusting of new humans. He just needs someone to give him a chance and will be a great dog. He loves being in the house, is housebroken and not a chewer. He is crate trained and gets along with other dogs. He will protect your yard from pesky squirrels and other critters that will come near your fence. If you have room in your heart and patience for earning Dan's trust then he will learn to love you back. Dan will require a traditional fenced in yard. 8/27/10 Dan continues to be leery of humans. He is doing well in his foster home but prefers t keep his distance from humans. He will play with all of the dogs and does well. He is looking for a special family that will work with him to feel comfortable with them. 1/19/09 Dan is still looking for a forever home. He is a sweet dog but is still a bit afraid of people but has come a long way. He loves to be in the house with the humans. He will curl up on a dog bed and take the world in as it passes him. He will now come over and give kisses to a human's hand. But he still needs to do things on his time. He will not let you catch him when he is out but will come in when you ask. He would love to a someone who would walk him on a leash then bring him in the house to relax. If outside he works hard as a guard dog. You will know if someone is coming or a squirrel decides to pass by. He says he is just doing his job protecting everyone in the house. His foster home feels safer with him in it. 8/28/08 I am still looking for a home to love me. I am a sweet dog but needs time to learn to trust people. I am great with other dogs. Update 8/18/07 - I am coming out of my shell a little bit. I love being in the house with people. I still love to play with the other dogs as well. My sister Ann and I were wondering through a neighborhood. We were scared. The fleas and ticks covered our body were driving us crazy. A great family with kids were able to coax us into their backyard with food. We were skinny and hunger. They got the fleas and ticks off of us and w were very grateful. I am the more timid one. I am sweet but I am a bit afraid of people. I love other dogs and now feel safe enough to play. I love Ann but will play with others if she is busy. If you adopt me you will need to realize I will need to learn to trust you. I love kids if they are nice to me. I will make a great friend if you dare to take a chance on me.
