Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Romeo is approximately 6 years old and is such an awesome little boy. He is very sweet & engaging and is wonderful with children. He is also good with women, cats, & other dogs. Unfortunately, he was abused by a man at some point in his life and is very frightened of men, trying to keep a distance from them. He is, however, improving in that area with consistent socialization. He likes to sleep right next to you under the covers and will be your best friend once he gets to know you (which, by the way, is much easier with chicken nuggets). He is shown at the Mall of Georgia Petsmart on most Saturdays. Please come with a little bit of time to spend as he is quite shy at first. Fencing required. . We do not have a shelter facility and our pets are housed in foster homes, vet clinics and local boarding facilities. Many of our adoptable pets attend adoption events each Saturday at Petsmart locations both in Winder and Buford, Georgia from 11:30-3:30 pm Please check with us to find out if a particular pet will be available. Details about our adoption procedures can be seen at www.pupandcatco.com.

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.

She is a very sweet girl and although she is 4 years old, she is full of herself and has lots of energy and just loves being outside and playing. Her like of the outdoors is no doubt because she is a hound. However, a couch looks awfully good too and she is housebroken and crate trained. Chloe gets along well with other dogs but give her a cat and the chase begins. It's mostly a game but she is not trustworthy.

They were relinquished back to Pup & Cat Co. and recently were placed in foster care. The foster mom has this to say: " In the ten years of being a foster parent for what seems like a hundred dogs, Ginger & Bice are the sweetest foster dogs I've had. These two require so very little, just a little love and affection. They love being petted and scratched and will sleep with you if invited. They get along well with other dogs. Both are housebroken and crate trained. There is very little barking and no chewing. They do love squeaky toys, especially Bice. They have been together their entire lives and keep each other entertained. They love time in the yard and are very good walkers which makes them heart healthy. We are looking for a forever home for these two sweet babies. " Ginger and Bice get along with other dogs, are housebroken and crate trained, walk great on a leash and ride well in a car. They are also good with children. They would make a great addition to any family. Both are under 25#.We do not have a shelter facility and our pets are housed in foster homes, vet clinics and local boarding facilities.
