Character: Chihuahuas are very intelligent little dogs that are much more brave than their small size suggests. They often bond with only one person.

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.

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: Ori-Pei
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Pug / Mixed (short coat). My name is Zena and my two most favorite things to do are smile and wag my tail…followed closely by being with my human. I am an amazingly cute pug and shar pei mix **don't even ask**. I am between 2 to 3 years old and I simply ADORE all people. I enjoy walks and even jogging with my foster mom. I am fully vetted, crate trained and…wait for it…house trained. Did i mention i smile all time? I AM GREAT WITH KIDS! Sorry for shouting but folks think this is important. I simply just love to be with my people. In the interest of full disclosure, I need to be an only dog…which brings me back to early socialization. I would love to explain, what, in my history, caused this quirk but I cannot. I am not a fan of other dogs or even kitties. My foster mom thinks it’s because i was never properly socialized…but 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. My foster mom would love the opportunity to sing my praises..except she can’t sing. I believe my forever family is looking for me as I wait patiently for them. Give me a chance…I won’t disappoint.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dutch Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Hi all Noah here! I have had some life. My foster mom had her hands full when I first came to her from our friends in Virginia. I was in a high kill shelter and was at the end of my time. AMMF and Miss Kathryn got with the shelter and saved me. I had a real long ride with my friend Hunter and his dad David from Virginia to Delaware. They thought I had a broken jaw because I was not eating. As it turned out my jaw thankfully was not broken but I was really sick. My foster mom found all I would eat was cooked chicken or pot roast so that is what she fed me for a few weeks or maybe longer. Then I started eating canned food for awhile now I eat dry food too. I have gained about 15 pounds. My foster mom says I am just so handsome. I do need to take a few medicines for my heart but I am doing awesome. I am house trained I do not need a crate as I do not get into or chew anything up. I sometimes get excited when I see foster mom and I run to her wagging my tail. I am really a happy guy and am fun to have around. If I really like you in time I will give you some kisses. If you would like to bring me into your family please go to allmuttsmatter.org and fill out an application. Love Noah!!
