Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Amber Ortiz (talia8621@aol.com) for more information about this pet. The Helotes Humane Society is a non profit organization dedicated to placing unwanted animals in loving homes. Remember, don't shop, adopt! Need a pocket pup? That’s Lucy. All 7 pounds of her. She loves cuddling and sleeping with kids! She likes walks, playing with other dogs and following you around the house. Lucy is very mellow and enjoys just hanging out. She is about 2 years old. If you would like more information on how to adopt Lucy, please call her foster Mom at: 210-274-2283 All of our animals receive vaccinations, testing and altering appropriate for their age. All pets will be microchipped prior to placement. The pet overpopulation problem has reached a crisis stage. We will use all of our resources to spay and neuter all pets in our care.

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: German Shorthaired Pointer-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / German Shorthaired Pointer / Mixed (short coat). The Helotes Humane Society is a non profit organization dedicated to placing unwanted animals in loving homes. Remember, don't shop, adopt! Needs People!!!! Bobo is a beautiful Staffy mix, solid white with a striking brown brindle mask on his head and face. We’ve seen him “pointing” like a German Shorthair Pointer. You'd never know Bobo is 3 years old when he flits around the house throwing toys up in the air trying to catch them. Yet he can be such a couch potato! He treats ALL people like long-lost family just returned, strangers or not! He's cuddly and affectionate (lap dog!), loves to be massaged and scratched. He doesn't mind getting his toenails cut and he loves getting his velvety white coat brushed with a rubber brush. He is so very joyful and happy. Believe it or not he is great with cats! He is fabulous with youngsters and adults, but because of his size and exuberance small children might be easily overwhelmed by him. He's not destructive, kennels well, neutered, vaccinated and house trained. He does really well with some dogs, and is best with small dogs and cats. That said, he REALLY WANTS a family of his own that he doesn't have to share with other dogs. He walks well on a leash, loves to get out for walks. He doesn't need a ton of exercise but but he has enough energy to enjoy a daily jog. He has a playful streak that will tickle your funny bone. He loves wrestling with large Jolly Balls and chewing up tug toys and Nylabones and can get so hilariously cute when playing with another dog in the foster home. We don't think he'd be happy spending many hours/day alone because of his craving to be with people. If you'd like to meet Bobo email spiritdog1@me.com to arrange a get-together . You can download an application at http://hhsanimals.org/pet-adoption-information/, complete and retun to spiritdog1@me.com. He tells me he’s waiting anxiously for yours and sends you a big fat smooch in gratitude! All of our animals receive vaccinations, testing and altering appropriate for their age.
