His foster doesn't have cats but believes he will be fine with them because most cats are bigger than he is. He is crate and house trained. Because of his age and size a home with older dog savvy children is a must. To meet this baby go to www.rescuerovers.org

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: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. My name is JoJo. German Shepherd mix. I am two years old, well behaved, smart, and friendly. House trained and kennel trained if my kennel is big enough. I would love to go running. My foster mom is really SLOOOW when we walk. I try to help her pick up the pace but She is pathetic and instead, got a leash that makes ME slow down. Ugh.... I always have a smile on my face and love my people. What I need help on is learning to be patient, learning to wait. Waiting is hard. I'm also nervous around new people but my foster mom is helping me get better. I like kids but older dog savvy kids would help because little kids do things I don't understand and that makes nervous. I love car rides and will be happy to go anywhere you go. I need a home with some fun people because I am one fun guy! You can help me learn more confidence by being a good leader. Fill out an application for me at Rescuerovers.org. I will be waiting!

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75.00. A Brown Betty is an easy, unpretentious dessert that comes together with pantry staples so you can have a sweet treat without a lot of fuss. Our Brown Betty is much the same! Just like the dessert she's named after, Betty is sweet as pie and all-American! She's an 8 year old American Bulldog Mix who's had some rough times in her past and is looking for a loving family to call her own. She's been in foster care for a long time - close to a year! Betty came to us with chemical burns across the top of her head and ears. This appears to be a result of living in a junk yard and spending lots of time hiding under old cars that dripped battery acid on her. It's likely that she was hiding from other dogs. Betty is still very wary of other animals in general and would love to be the only pet in your home. Betty's tough, scarred exterior seems to be hiding the fact that she is an absolute love! She adores children and loves to cuddle. In her foster home Betty lives with a 7 year old and a 13 year old and is absolutely devoted to them both. Her favorite thing to do is lay on the bed with her girls for reading time...just don't leave any stuffed animals where she can get them! Betty is an easy girl and a joy to have around. She is house trained, kennel trained, walks like an angel on leash and has excellent house manners. She would be the perfect addition to the right family. If Brown Betty sounds like the snuggle cake you've been looking for, apply to meet her today at www.rescuerovers.org

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75.00. Introducing DeWolf, a 9.5 yr old chocolate Staffordshire Terrier mix male. DeWolf goes by D for short. And speaking of that, he is on the short side but the perfect size for hanging out, going for walks or even going for a ride. D is working on walking great on leash and with some more practice he will ace it. D is also kennel trained and knows the command to go in and is house trained as well. D does good with older kids (12 +) that have been around dogs, he gets spooked by the higher energy and yelling of younger active kids however. We do not know any of D’s history, but we do know he hasn’t been socialized with other dogs, so he doesn’t understand how to play or take body language clues so a home where he is the only animal will be best. D also needs to stay on a grain free food ($28 for #35lbs) due to some allergies he has too grain. If you would like to meet this wonderful boy please apply at www.rescuerovers.org

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Adoption Fee: 75.00. Meet Ferron! This handsome chocolate lab is 8 years young and he can't wait to find his forever family! Ferron is a big boy at almost 70lbs, and he has that much love to give, too! Ferron's favorite thing is to be with his people all the time. Like...all the time. He doesn't care what you're doing or how weird it might be for him to be there, he's going to love you THAT MUCH. Ferron is potty trained and has good house manners. He is gentle with children, but he is a big boy that could inadvertently knock little ones over, so kids that can take a tumble (or are old enough to have good balance) would be best for him. If 8 seems "old" to you, Ferron wants you to know it's not. He is wise, yes, but he's also tons of fun. Ferron loves going on walks and getting his feet wet in the creek. He loves to play with his foster dog-siblings and he is always up to notifying you to danger with an alert bark or two (like when someone knocks on the front door.) If you are looking for a loyal companion apply to meet Ferron today at rescuerovers.org

      Breed: Chihuahua

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Adoption Fee: 150.00. Meet Tabasco! T is a 6 year old male Chihuahua looking for new digs! He weighs in at a hefty 8 pounds, though he thinks he’s one of the big dogs. Tabasco is a spunky, spitfire of a guy who has independence for days. He is potty trained and crate trained, though he has great house manners. When his foster family is away, he is free to roam the house and does just fine. He is good with dogs but can get grumbly when they get in his face uninvited. He seems to prefer men if he has the choice. It does take time for him to warm up to new people and trust them to know he’s safe and not going to be harmed. He can be an insecure, unsure dog who needs patience, understanding and leadership. Given his insecurity and dislike for constant, uninvited affection at close range, it may be best he go to a home without small children. Unknown on cats but given his size and general demeanor, a meet can be easily arranged to see if they get along! He has good leash skills and will alert you of people who get within close proximity of your house. So if you’re looking for a house alarm that’s cheaper than the ADT system and a dog who just wants to hang around and watch TV nearby, apply for his adoption today!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 150.00. My name is Mirasol, I'm a sweet dog and have a fun loving personality. One of my favorite things is cuddling next to my humans. I'm approximately 2 years old, I am crate trained and potty trained, love humans, especially ones that let me cuddle next to them in bed and on the couch. I have so much love to give but do need to be the only dog. I still need work on liking other dogs and will need an owner who understands that. My Foster Mom says I need someone who can commit to training by enrolling me in group classes. Training is for the benefit of dog and owner. I'm a great dog but I would love to learn more with my forever family. I recommend K9 Training Center or Kudos 2 Canine. If your interested in adopting me, please clink here to fill out application. http://rescuerovers.rescuegroups.org/forms/ Once approved we would love to do a meet & greet. Adoption fee is $150.00 which includes Neuter, Rabies, Microchip, DHPP, Bordatella and me for that price.
