Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Chihuahua (short coat). Oy Chihuahua!! That's me, Buddy! I am an excellent companion dog, only about 7 years old and the most loveable, sweetest little fellow you'll ever meet! Part of my irresistible cuteness is that sometimes my tongue hangs out because I'm missing a few teeth! I'm seeking a wonderful home where I can share all of this love! I have a heart murmur that requires me to take a daily pill (which only costs $20/month). I can't be neutered because of my heart murmur, so therefore I pee on things. I'm also crate and house trained, up to date on my shots and I get along with other dogs and cats. If you are looking for a gentle, little lap dog then please fill out my adoption application and one of the kind folks here at AMMF will be in touch soon! Our adoption process is below: 1. Submit an application and it will be processed, evaluated and we will contact the vet and personal references; 2. All other applications that have been submitted on Buddy will also be processed (best suited applicant is chosen, not first come first serve); 3. Schedule a home visit; and 4. Adoption is finalized when the best-fitting home is found for Buddy. If you have young children and/or other pets and everyone gets along, Buddy will be able to stay at your home and do a foster to adopt for about a two-week trial period. If all is going well after the trial period, the adoption will then be finalized. Our adoption fee for Buddy is $150.00.

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: Australian Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd (medium coat). Hi my name is Baine and I am looking for a special kind of forever! I am a big loveable guy, but I am going to require a special family. You see my breed with my coloring tend to have genetic defects, and well that's a lot for me to understand but I will explain. I have one eye that is totally not functional and I have little to no depth perception in my other eye. And also because of this, I can not hear anything. SO the good news is that I am the most loveable and happy guy you will ever meet. I get along with everyone including children. I will sit and let you pet me for as long as you can stand it. I chill easily once I have established my comfort zone, and I will try to play with you as long as I can keep you on the right side. I love to run and play, you should see me go! I do get spooked sometimes, especially if I don't see you at first. I have never showed one bit of aggression no matter how scared I get, I will do my best to get away from whatever has me scared. AMMF feels that I should go to a forever home with a fenced in yard.So if you think we are the right match, go to www.allmuttsmatter.org to apply for me!!

      rescue
      Breed: Ori-Pei
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Pug / Mixed (short coat). My name is Zena, but I'm affectionately known as Zena Bean. Wagging my tail is my absolute favorite thing to do; and it's contagious, too! When my foster mommy gets excited, she even does a "zena wag" herself. I am an amazingly cute pug and shar pei mix. I am approximately 3 years old and I simply ADORE all people. I enjoy walks and even jogging with my foster mom. After a long walk, you can always find me airing out in front of the fan. I love the way the wind feels in my hair! I am fully vetted, crate trained and house trained. Did I mention I smile all time? I simply just love to be with my people. And, I am great with kids! The worst day of my life is when my family surrendered me to All Mutts Matter. They had a toddler whom I absolutely adored, but they said that I was "too much" for them. But I can't understand why too much loving is a bad thing! I wish they were able to keep me and love me, but instead, I ended up with All Mutts Matter. And, while I love my foster mom, I would really like to have a forever family that I can call my own! In the interest of full disclosure, I need to be an only dog. I do not like or get along with other dogs and cats. My foster mom thinks it’s because i was never properly socialized. I am a work in progress, and I am correctable in public. I am just not ready to co exist with another dog or kitty. I believe I will find my true happy ending with a wonderful family that I will spend the rest of my life with. Will you take me home and love me forever?

I'm always on the move and see just fine out of my good eye! I am up-o-date on vaccinations & heartworm prevention and have been wormed, spayed, and michrochipped.
