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.

Therefore, if you are interested in adopting from LHS, please complete an online application at http://legacyhumanesociety.org/adoptfoster/adoption-application/ and we will contact you asap about the status of your application. Hello my name is Buster. I am 12 years young.  My family surrendered me to the shelter when they moved and "could not take" me with them:( When my mom heard about me she took me in where now I wait for my furrever home! Buster is just a complete sweetheart whose former family seemingly did not take care of:(Because they did not have him on HW preventative, he is HW positive and because of his age the vet recommended the "slow kill" method which is done by giving him monthly HW preventative just like other doggies.  He also had to have 17 teeth extracted due to poor dental health and now he is just doing great ! This little guy also has a vestibular (balance) problem which does not require any meds or vet therapy. He just wobbles a little bit when he walks or stands but "doesn't fall down" :) This just makes him even more adorable when he comes running to greet you! Buster is a total love bug! He follows his foster mom around the house and likes to nap in his bed while she works around the kitchen. He loves his daily stroll in the yard but his absolute favorite thing to do is nap with his foster mom! Buster also does great with the resident doggies and given his laid back disposition would likely do well with cats.  And because of his small size and age would do best in a home with older kiddos.  Buster weighs about 10 lbs , is up to date on vaccinations and micro chipped. He is house trained and crate trained and is such a gentleman he is allowed to roam free while his foster parents are away:) He does great in the car , walks well on leash and sleeps quietly throughout the night. So if you are interested in meeting this deserving beautiful soul, please fill out an application online. His foster mom will be in touch via EMAIL within 24hrs.

Amber is a princess in need of a new home. Her current owners are going through some medical issues and can no longer provide the same level of care. We are reaching out to the public hoping to find someone who would like to bring this bundle of love home. She is good with kids, other dogs of all sizes, and adults. She has not been exposed to any other type of animals. She is very tidy, extremely loving and happy! She likes to chase birds and bask in the sun. This amazing little girl will warm your heart, even on the worst of days. She loves to climb in your lap even to this day, something she did ever since she was a pup. So, if you are sitting in a chair or on the porch she will try to get into your lap for some cuddle time. She loves hugs and lots of petting. She never quite got the concept of fetch!! She will chase, but do not expect her to return the ball, lol!
