Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Welcome to Katie's Roadside Rescue! We are an animal rescue with the primary mission of saving dogs that have been dumped in the country or by the side of the road to fend for themselves. Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Tiny Tot moved in from next door as soon as we moved in. She was unloved and unwanted and had to live outside with minimal shelter and other large dogs. She is a sweet little dog but has the attitude of a big dog which she's had to have to survive - also typical of a chihuahua! She also had never been inside until she met us and now is a good little house dog and is house trained and will use a potty pad. Tiny is also missing an eye but that doesn't slow her down one bit! She has also lived around cats and should be fine with them. If you have a lap available she will be on it. She is an exceptional little dog with a ton of love to give. Tiny deserves to be loved as family member and live inside with her family. Are you ready to add a bouncy fun little girl to your home? Oh and she loves car rides too! THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

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.

      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Carolina Dog / Mixed (short coat). Welcome to Katie's Roadside Rescue! We are an animal rescue with the primary mission of saving dogs that have been dumped in the country or by the side of the road to fend for themselves. Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Bonnie is a sweet, shy medium sized girl that has had a really rough year or so. See Bonnie was living in a field next to a busy shopping center for over a year. She managed to dodge traffic and had several people leaving her food. In fact she was a bit plump upon rescue! She was initially in a foster home and did very well except she started to chase the cats so that didn't work. She has never had an accident inside and asks to go out and also knows how to use a doggy door. She lives with all the rescue dogs of all sizes and does great. Once Bonnie gets to know you she is a faithful companion. She does need a companion dog to help her with her shyness. She is now a love bug, plays, prances and dances when she is happy and is an overall great little gal. A little older kids would be best as small ones may scare her. Do you have it in your heart to give this sweet girl her furever home where she'll never have to fear being left in a field again? You honestly will not be disappointed. She amazes me more and more every day. THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 "Junior will steal your heart the moment he flaunts his one ear up pose! Although he is timid at first He is an extremely sweet and kind dog looking for the affection and love from a family. He was found living on the streets and was very fearful of anyone coming near him. He would cower when anybody would try to pet him. As his foster family started to gain his trust his sweet personality really started to shine. He now loves to cuddle and lay next to his foster mom and take naps with his foster dog-brother, Charlie. Caution is taken regarding loud noises and sudden movements as they can make him scared and anxious. Fortunately, as he continues to spend time in his foster home he continues to make progress in becoming more comfortable, less scared, and happy around people! He does well walking with a leash and using the bathroom outside. He doesn't like being alone so he really enjoys having the company of Charlie and loves to take naps and go on walks with him. Children tend to make him nervous and scared so he might do better in a home with mainly adults or perhaps older children. Overall junior is a very sweet and loving dog wanting to bond and find his fur ever family!" THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

Even with a shaky past she wants to be near you and watches every move checking to see if she can trust you. Carina has held out, being the last one to really come around to human touch but we are making huge strides in the trust department and she is letting me pet her more and more every day.

She lived in the woods for over 4 months that we know of so that explains some of her wariness and shyness at first meeting. Once she knows you are ok and she trusts you she is a great little companion. She is house trained, sleeps on the big bed at night or will sleep in her own. She is quiet. In fact - the only time I've really heard her bark was at small kids. So no children please - they simply scare her. She has wiry hair and when she shakes she looks like she stuck her toe in an electrical socket! She is a precious girl that deserves a wonderful life where she will never be dumped in the woods again. Are you the family for her? Apply at www.krrtx.org/forms THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""
