Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Dear Forever Person/Persons, I know you've been looking for me, and I've been looking for you!! I've got my bag packed and I'm ready to come home! I even put on a fancy good luck tie just hoping it might help us find each other :) . I'm Jerry a healthy short-hair Chi mix! I love to sleep under the covers with you, and love taking walks! I require a special diet but goodness knows, I love to eat! I currently live with a bunny and we both like carrots! I am also good with dogs and cats. I weigh about 12 lbs, and best guess is that I'm around 10-12 years old - don't let my age make you question me though - I've got plenty of spunk and years left - you'll see! Even though I'm so excited to meet you, come home, and love you, I just ask for a little patience - moving from my foster to forever home could just take me a minute to get used to. I'm ready and excited to meet you, forever person! I love you already! See you soon!

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.

I love to snuggle and play, I'm super smart and quickly learn commands. I'm even housebroken! I like people and love to be the center of attention. Other dogs I can be a bit particular about. I would do great as an only dog. I prefer cats for chasing and barking at, which they don’t always take kindly to. I really haven't spe nt much time around kids, but think I would be fine around older dog suave ones. I really am a happy dog and am ready to be happy with you!

I long for a stable home so I can finally just relax. I quickly warm up to folks who approach me in a gentle and cautious manner. With a little love and affection, I can learn to trust again. I'm ready to find my furever home- can you be patient and cautious with me? If so, I will love you forever. Stayed tuned as my foster family will be getting to know me to learn more about me.

      Location: Portland, OR
      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Meet adorable Hurley! Hurley is 6 years old and around 15 pounds. Hurley was left at a local shelter on a freezing cold morning in a crate at the end of the shelters driveway. Hurley wasn't able to walk on his hind legs. The shelter took X-rays and found no broken bones or spinal damage and after some rest Hurley is now walking and he is improving each day. He is almost back to 100% and his gait is amost back to normal now. Hurley wasn't doing well in the shelter atmosph ere and needed a foster home and a rescue who could work with him. You see Hurley is a bit fearful at first when he is in a new environment and can nip. Its like PTSD really. Therefore we are working with him to get through his fears. Hurley will do well in a home without children or cats. He likes other dogs, loves walks and his squeaky toys. He is house trained and walks well on a leash. He does like to snuggle once he trusts no one is going to hurt him. A seasoned dog person would be best for dear Hurley to continue the training he is currently getting in foster.
