Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Meet Mickey!! Mickey is an adorable 2 year old male, neutered chihuahua mix. His mom thinks he would do best in a different home since his mom’s health prevents her from being able to walk him frequently. He love to be active so he would be best with someone that can walk him and exercise him regularly. He is not suitable for a house with young children for he tends to be nervous around them and nippy. Once he warms up, he just wants to be close to you and give kisses. His mom is heartbroken about this decision but knows in her heart that Mickey would do best in a house where he can be a spoiled, doted only child and someone who has patience to help Mickey be the awesome dog he knows he can be. Can you be that person for Mickey? Contact Karen 8479771304

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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Skip Rogers is a precious, sweet, friendly and adorable three-legged black and white Lab mix who stole his rescuer's heart when visiting the Humane Society a month ago. He was most likely hit by a car and the right rear leg could not be saved. His new mom says that he is a kind soul, playful with their other dogs, curious and interested in the cats and friendly to their house guests. But he has nipped at their youngest child several times without provocation. She says Skip Rogers deserves a loving home with someone who will give him a second chance.
