Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Amalie is a gentle, pint-sized beauty who would love nothing more than to find her forever home. This lovely, 8YO, 9# girl is the ideal combination of calm and playful. Amalie's playful side really shines when she is with other dogs (particularly fellow Chis). She would also be perfectly fine living with cats. Amalie (like far too many dogs we encounter in rescue) started her life with humans she couldn't depend on to provide love, safety and the basics every dog deserves. As a result, Amalie came to us a shy girl. Through the shyness, however, was an unwavering sweetness and desire to bond. Amalie has made great progress so far. She is a very easy dog to live with - and completely fall in love with. Since Amalie's most joyful moments are when she engages in play with her canine BFFs, she is best-suited for a forever home with other dogs (or at least a home where she has regular play-dates with other dogs). Amalie is a creature of habit and flourishes in the regular daily routine of a calm home environment. If Amalie sounds like she might be your perfect match, we invite you to submit an adoption application today! For further information please email the address in the box to the right. Anyone interested in our dogs/cats will be required to fill out an adoption application. We do not adopt to anyone living out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. All our dogs/cats will be spayed/neutered, heart worm tested (dogs), FeLV/FIV tested (cats), microchipped; and current on vaccinations. We do not adopt on a first-come first-served basis. We review all applications received to ensure that the animal and the applicant are a good match based on our personal experiences with the animal. These animals live in our homes with us so we are familiar with their habits and behaviors. To fill out an application online or to find out more information about our adoption process, just go to www.friscohumanesociety.com and click on the 'Adoption Application' link.

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.
