Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). IF INTERESTED IN CHITO, PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT www.pamperedpetsanimalrescue.org and fill out our online application. Chito's adoption fee is $150.00 Meet Chito. Chito is a 4 year old chihuahua weighing approximately 6 lbs. Chito has plenty of spunk and personality, he gets along with other dogs but does like to play and sometimes if the other dog is not on the same page, they may be a little annoyed at Chito. Chito LOVES his people!. Chito is potty trained and does well on a leash although we would prefer a fenced in yard for him since he was brought into a shelter as a stray. Chito does not like to be crated but he does just fine having run of the house while his people are gone. And if you are looking for a lap dog, Chito is your man!!!

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: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (short coat). PLEASE NOTE THAT WE CANNOT TRAVEL MORE THAN ONE HOUR ONE WAY TO PERFORM A HOME VISIT OR ADOPT OUT ONE OF OUR ANIMALS. IF INTERESTED IN AMBROSE, PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT www.pamperedpetsanimalrescue.org and fill out an online application. AMBROSE ADOPTION FEE IS $90.00. AMBROSE--is a special little dog who will be a wonderful companion for someone and he deserves to have a caring home to take him through the rest of his life! Ambrose is approximately 9 years old, male Shih Tzu (neutered) Ambrose does have chronic dry eye which is common for his breed, so he will need to be on ointment for life, he may be allergic to fleas so flea preventative is a must. Ambrose loves to go for short walks. He can do one step okay, going up is better than going down. He gets along with dogs and cats and does like to play and scamp around with them. He is on a schedule to pee/poop morning and evening, but since his foster mom is gone for almost 10 hours a day, he will sometimes have an accident, but we believe that if he were walked more often or had a fenced in backyard then this would not happen. NOTE: he will go potty wherever he is - on the sidewalk or street or grass - he doesn’t get on the grass to go. He likes cream cheese so pills are no problem or canned food will work as well. He is a really good dog - perfect in the car, and will stand still for a bath or at the vet. Will come to you if you call him.
