Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Carol (carol.johnson72@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Adoption Donation $ 299 Located: in AR (Transportation included to the Northeast) Age: approx 4 years old Weight: 9 lbs Chiquita is an adorable and quintessential lap dog who is 4 years old She loves to cuddle and gets along fine with other dogs. She was dumped at a kill shelter with her sister, Cosita, in the south because the owners said they didn't have time for them. Chiquita was very nervous and stressed when she was first rescued but she has come into her own. She snuggles under the cover with her foster mom and flips over for belly rubs. Chiquita likes to be your only one--when her foster siblings are getting attention she will bark her disapproval. She is housebroken as long as she goes out regularly. Because of her size we won't adopt her to a home with young children. She would make a loving companion in a quiet home with adults who are familiar with the breed.. For more information please email: carol.johnson72@yahoo.com Please verify the location and readiness of this dog with us. Because we save lives from various locations through out the United States, some dogs may not be in New England yet, nor ready for immediate adoption.

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.
