Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund (short coat). CONTACT: For more information about making Sammie part of your life, please contact Katja at 951-973-2757 or katja@hope4animals.org. BIO: Sammie is a delightful 18-month-old fawn-and-white spayed female Chihuahua/Dachshund (aka Chiweenie) mix who was surrendered because her owner claimed they didn't have time to spend with her. Weighing 10 lbs, Sammie is a complete sweetheart in every way. She warms up quickly to new people and loves to be close to her human(s). Her favorite activities include playing with squeaky toys and balls; she also can give a fantastic performance dancing on her hind legs (we call her the "chi-deer" because she has very long, elegant legs)! Sammie walks fine on a leash, and is housebroken and crate trained. She lives in a foster home with other dogs, cats, and children, and gets along beautifully with everyone. Sammie will be a wonderful, loving best friend to an individual or family eager to spend time with her and enjoy her fabulous company. She is a true plug-and-play pet who will be an awesome best friend in any loving home and would be a great choice for a first-time dog owner. For more information about Sammie, please contact Katja at 951-973-2757 or katja@hope4animals.org. Sammie is a COURTESY LISTING and not part of UHA's Shelter Support Program.

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.

With her wonderfully soft coat, Carla is a delight to pet, and she is grateful for the attention. She walks respectably on leash, and already knows how to sit and lie down on command. We think you could teach this smart girl to fly to the moon if you rewarded her with turkey! It’s no surprise she sailed through her shelter-administered temperament test, even though she did not receive one until after almost two full months of stressful kenneling, a true testament to her amazing disposition.

She would like to be part of an active household where she can join you on walks or hikes. Like all teenage dogs, she likes to do things and be part of daily activities.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). **THIS IS A COURTESY POST FOR UHA. My name is Zuli and I am looking for my forever home (hopefully around San Diego, where I am located!) 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. If you are interested in adopting me, please contact my foster mama, Heather, at obeachgirl@yahoo.com ZULI’S VIDEO: http://youtu.be/TG8v_y7MYpQ MORE PHOTOS OF ZULI: http://on.fb.me/1smmDe6
