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.

Description: Norton is a fabulous 18-month-old grey-and-fawn male Pit Bull mix (who may be some amazing combination of American Bully, Rottweiler, and Shar Pei) who was rescued from a high-intake public shelter after his owners abandoned him there, claiming they didn't have time to spend with him. Weighing 56 pounds, Norton is as funny and delightful as a dog can be. He is exuberant, affectionate, and sweet. In his foster home, he is living with happily with other dogs. He really loves to be close to his human, and wants to be part of a household where he will get a lot of attention. Some of Norton's favorite activities include helping out in the kitchen (he would be an excellent sous chef!), going on walks, playing with other dogs, and squeaking on squeaky toys. Norton has plenty of "get-up-and-go" and would be an awesome activity partner--and he also enjoys a snooze on his dog bed at home. Norton is is housebroken and crate-trained and knows how to sit on command, and will thrive in a household that is eager to continue working with him on more advanced obedience skills. Some of Norton's unique features include his incredibly soft fur (his coat feels like crushed velvet and is beyond wonderful to pet!) and his happy snorting (which is why he is known as Snortin' Norton!). Sweet Norton would be the perfect choice as an indoor pet in an active household looking for a funny, adorable best pal to make a central part of everyday life.

Weighing just over 80 lbs, Cooper is an absolute loverboy. He adores being with people and just hanging out, doing whatever you're doing. He is highly adaptable, and would be a great side-kick to keep you company at work or around the house. Cooper loves to go for rides in the car, or to have a snooze in the sun. He is relaxed and friendly around dogs of all sizes. Cooper has completed obedience training and he walks nicely on leash and knows his basic commands. Cooper has a spectacularly large head that attracts attention wherever he goes (you won't believe how often people on the street stop to talk with Cooper!); he loves to rest it on the knee of his human friends and be pet. We can't overstate how loving and gentle this boy is--just lean down for a kiss and let him show you. Cooper experienced a lifetime of neglect, so he has some longer-term health issues related to this, including a kidney condition that can be managed by diet and a daily medication he is happy to take--and there is nothing that stops him from being a fabulous best pal! Cooper will be an awesome addition to any loving household eager to have a mellow, devoted best friend and that will offer him the care and attention he craves.

I am about 18-months-old and I am a bluenose Pit Bull mix puppy. I am full of lots of puppy energy! I adore playing with other dogs and get very excited around playtime. I currently live with FIVE other doggies who are my best friends, and I am currently being trained how to control my energy level. When I go to my new home, I will need to continue to work with trainer so I can become the best canine citizen there is! I ride very well in the car and I am currently potty trained. I know how to listen to my foster mama and will only chew on appropriate toys. I walk very well on leash, and I also know many commands! I know how to "sit," "wait," "down," "leave it," "stay", and "easy." I also know how to "shake" and "roll over" (both ways!) I get along very well with older children and can respect younger children, but I probably shouldn't live with them since I might accidentally knock them over with my puppy energy and enthusiasm. I am spayed, up to date on shots and rabies, and microchipped.
