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.

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: Dachshund (short coat). Hi my name is Fatboy and I am looking for my retirement home! My dad got really sick and he loved me so much that he felt the best thing for me was to find a new home. I would prefer a home where you can give me all of the attention, but if you have another senior dog I may be ok with him or her. I am crate trained, but would rather not be in one. My foster mom tells me that I probably wouldn't be good for an apartment because I like to talk a lot. In my defense, I am probably talking just because I want to be close to you. I would love to have a lap to snuggle in. I like to play with toys and go on walks. I love going for car rides. If someone is home to see my signs, I am house trained. If you are looking for a buddy to retire with, then go to www.allmuttsmatter.org to apply for me. Luv Fatboy!

      Posted Breed: Pug / Dachshund / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! It’s Me! Raya! I am a pretty laid back girl. I am looking for a new home but I need a special home that will understand my ways. I have done well in my foster home. Even though I am very cute I am NOT CUDDLY. I am best if you let me come to you for pets etc. I am more like a cat then a dog. I like it a certain way and if we come to an agreement things can be wonderful for both of us. I am about 7 years old, a Pug mix, with a bit of an attitude. I need a home that is going to understand my attitude and make sure you are ready for my challenges. I am fully vetted and healthy for my age. I love to be with some people and dogs and would really like to find a family of my very own. Will that be you? Please go to www.allmuttsmatter.org and fill out an adoption application. Hope to hear from you soon. Hugs, Raya.

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Hi my name is Pixie and I am looking for my forever home. I have been with these wonderful people at AMMF for two years now, and would love to find my perfect family. I gave my foster a scare last year and was very sick. The kind doctor that took care of me diagnosed me with an immune disorder. He started me on Prednisone and that sure did make me feel so much better. I have been doing great since then, and will need this for the rest of my life. As soon as people find out that I have to take medicine and that there is no guarantee on how long my life will be or how long until I have another issue, they continue their search for a new family member. Seriously humans? I just don't get it, that you have to hold that against me. I mean, there are no guarantees with even the healthiest of dogs. I am really hoping that my special family will come soon that will love me and give me the life I deserve for whatever time that I have left. I have a lot of love and cuddles to give to the right family. If you think you are it, please go to www.allmuttsmatter.org and apply for me PIXIE!!

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / 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 shar pei mix. I am approximately 4 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! 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 have had professional training, but still am not ready to co-exist with other dogs and cats. If you will take me home and love me forever, please go to www.allmuttsmatter.org to apply for me.
