Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Please contact Pam (pam.alvarez@comcast.net) for more information about this pet. CHICO With his sleek cinnamon-colored coat, Chico, the 3-year-old chi, wears the classic good looks of his tiny breed wonderfully well. From his trademark ears and wide-eyed look of impish innocence to his gaily wagging tail, this 8 lb. cutie was born to be petted, pampered and played with. It’s no surprise then, that his favorite activities include snuggling on people’s laps, playing with the other dogs – even the cat – in his foster home and going for long walks. Although his shy side shows when he first meets new people, he’s been warming up more quickly with each new person he’s met. Walking well outside on leash, what Chico most enjoys is meeting up with his many friendly neighbors; then, once he’s back inside, he races straight for his cache of toys. Potty trained as long as he’s taken out often, neutered, up to date with all of his shots and heart worm negative, cheeky and cheerful little Chico is on the hunt for a forever home, preferably one with a canine companion already in residence. If you have an empty lap just waiting to be filled by the ultimate lap dog, simply fill out an application form.

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.

We do have his history of what his family did for him. Sam is healthy now but does have a very sensitive stomach. He is a picky eater but has gotten better in the last month and he loves his nighttime treats. Sam is not a social dog, he doesn't like to be held or pick .He is NOT a lap dog! He is fine with other dogs and even the foster homes cat. He is potty train if you get him out a lot. He sleeps a lot during the day but will come into the family room with us in the evening. Sometimes he will play with HIS Pig!!! Or just sit or lay on the floor. He doesn't go for walks but seems to be ok in the car. Sam has the most wonderful eyes, he will look at you sometimes to figure out what you are doing. He comes into the kitchen to see what you are fixing. Sam needs a very special person or family that will except him the way he is. Maybe down the road he will be come comfortable being picked up, being a lap dog.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Pam (pam.alvarez@comcast.net) for more information about this pet. Mix Hi my name is Bailey, and I am a 1 1/2yr old Chiweenie. I am up to date with all my shots, neutered and heart worm negative. I am partially potty trained, I do very well when someone is home with me, but do not like to be alone so I have boo boos, which I am working very hard to fix. I do have a couple of old injuries which have healed over and do not bother me at all. I do have a cataract in my right eye, which was caused by another injury, and has left me blind in that eye. But that does not seem to bother me either. I get along well with everyone. I like playing with my other foster dogs, toys and my foster mom. I am just a happy little boy! I love to go for long walks, but do not like the car at all. I am told that I am just a little sweetheart. I will give you lots of kisses and at the end of a long hard day will just curl up with you in bed and relax. If you would like to give me my forever home please go to Abby's Little Friends.com and fill out an application so that we can meet.
