Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Just look at this sweet face!! Rascal’s life was a little rough until his foster mom spotted him at the Corpus Christi Animal Control shelter and could not resist him!! Having been a street dog, he sat terrified in a corner of the shelter until his time was up. Poor guy - he had demodectic mange and was completely unsocialized. He refused any human contact in the beginning but with the help of all the other dogs in the pack and the fact that his foster mom could see his potential, he has blossomed into one of his foster mom's very favorite rescue dogs!! Rascal has a very funny personality. He's great with all dogs and plays and plays- and prefers to play with the big dogs! He loves to be held and will fall asleep with a little scratching but he's an independent guy. He is not needy and he is just as happy to entertain himself and hang out with the other dogs. Rascal will need someone that is willing to be patient and earn his trust. They will never regret their decision to give this boy a chance. He's one of the coolest dogs we know!! Rascal is heart worm negative, microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations and he is neutered. His adoption fee is $150. If you would like more information or an adoption application, please call Rascal's foster mom at (210) 464-0160 or email her at Redbarnkennel1863@gmail.com

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.
