He's funny and happy and just a joy. || TRAINING: Mello is doing VERY well with his crate training and with a little transitional work into a new home would be housebroken quickly. || WOULD DO BEST: Mello wants a home where someone will play with him and love on him every day. He would love to go on long walks too. || CATS/DOGS/KIDS: Mello is fantastic with dogs of all sizes and with cats. He would be great with children as well. || VET RECORD :All of our dogs are currently vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. || AVAILABILITY: This dog is available for adoption now and is being fostered or kenneled in the San Fernando Valley area.

Chihuahua

Overview: The Chihuahua is a tiny bundle of joy. Kids love him ' and for good reason. This breed seems always excited about something. They do best as an indoor dog, but they love to scamper around in the yard ' in suitable weather.
Breed Group: Toy
Weight (lbs): 6
Height (in): 6-9
Colors: Any.
Coat: Smooth with soft, glossy hair or long with soft straight or wavy coat and fringed ears.
Character: Chihuahuas are very intelligent little dogs that are much more brave than their small size suggests. They often bond with only one person.
Temperament: This breed usually lives with other dogs and cats very easily. Children should be taught how to play with this small dog as many try to treat it as a toy.
Care: The Chihuahua requires occasional grooming with a brush and comb. Trim claws and check teeth on a regular basis. Care of the long coat entails brushing 2 to 3 times a week.
Training: This breed is eager to learn, so don't let the small size deter you from properly training him.
Activity: Chihuahuas can typically get sufficient exercise by playing indoors.
Country of Origin: Mexico
Health Issue: This breed has a short nose and large eyes, which can cause some problems (e.g., wheezing, dry eye, glaucoma). They are prone to slipped stifle, gum problems, colds, stress, and rheumatism.
Life Expectancy: about 15 or more

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: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. DOB: September, 2012 ||| BREED/COLORING: Basenji/Terrier Mix; Red ||| SIZE: Astoria weighs about 18lbs and is full grown. ||| HISTORY: Astoria came to us through a good samaritan who had rescued her from nearly being hit by a car. The good samaritan spent a month looking for the owner and helped make sure she was healthy. After having her for a month this good samaritan reached out to us asking for our help in finding her a forever home. Astoria was born with one of her eyes not fully developed. Her eye does not require any medical intervention - it is just useless for sight. ||| PERSONALITY: Lina is very sweet and loving. She is young and playful – and her breed is very willful and smart. ||| TRAINING: Astoria has no previous training experience that is known. We are working on her housebreaking and she has done pretty well. ||| WOULD DO BEST: Astoria would like a home where she can go on walks and sit on laps. She would probably prefer not to be with very young children… and she’d probably also prefer to be an only-dog. She would do well in an apartment situation. ||| CATS/DOGS/KIDS: Astoria is NOT a dog park dog. She can be very Alpha with other dogs (some dogs she is okay with – mostly larger males). She is not recommended for homes with cats or children under about 10 years old since she tends to be a “door darter.” ||| VET RECORD: All of our dogs are currently vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. ||| AVAILABILITY: This dog is available for adoption now and is being fostered or kenneled in the San Fernando Valley area.
