Posted Breed: Chihuahua / 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! Nikki was picked up on the streets of San Antonio as a stray. It was obvious when she got into foster care that she hadn't had much interaction with people.

She is learning about how to ride in a doggy booster seat in the car. Nikki needs a home that will be patient with her and help her become more confident.She enjoys the company of other dogs her own size. She seems fine with cats. The perfect home for her would be a single active retired person or couple.

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.

Gentle Senior Lap Dog ***Senior Dog - Discounted Adoption Fee*** Winky is a sweet little Chihuahua mix who had fallen on some tough times when HHS first found her on the streets of Helotes, scrounging through trash bags for scraps of food. She appears to have had a previous owner, as her left eye was surgically removed at some point. Winky is very affectionate and loves to cuddle on the couch. She's about ten years old, and while she still has plenty of energy when she needs it, she prefers to spend most of her day relaxing in a soft bed or a warm lap. She has a little bit of trouble seeing clearly out of her right eye, but she is able to navigate around the house and yard with no problems! She gets along well with other dogs and cats, and does well with children who are gentle with her. She's looking for a forever home where she can relax and spend her time sunbathing in the back yard or hanging out with her people inside. Winky is spayed and up to date on her shots. She is heartworm negative, and microchipped. If you have any questions about Winky, please contact the Helotes Humane Society (HHS). Foster will only accept contact through HHS.
