Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Pomeranian / Mixed (medium coat). **Phillip is in need of a foster home (or adopter!)** Phillip is an extra handsome little 6 pound longhaired chi mix, about 1 year old. He has the sweetest personality and LOVES everyone he meets! Phillip is a very playful little guy, and enjoys playing with the other dogs in his foster home. He's also quite content playing by himself with his favorite plush toys and chew bones. But most of all, he loves to cuddle with his person. Phillip needs to go to a home with a yard (even if it's small) and where someone is home most of the day. Philip was born with a slight rear-end deformity, so he runs a little sideways and has to wear a diaper indoors. Phillip is looking for an extra loving, understanding, and patient person/family who will love and accept him as he is. He needs someone willing to make a commitment to him and his special needs. In return he will love you forever! Phillip has been in rescue since 8/2015.

More About Chiranian Breed
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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Senior Special Needs Dog Looking for a Special Someone Shelby is a 10-year old Pitbull who wants nothing but to lay down with someone and have her belly rubbed. This very sweet girl will give special someone great companionship. She loves to eat and loves to go for an easy walk. When first rescued 3 years ago she was nothing but skin and bones, her previous owner brought her back from a brink of death. But unfortunately, she recently lost a house and was no longer able to care for Shelby. I am fostering her but she does not get along with my 2 dogs and is having to stay alone in a room during the day while I am at work. She is diabetic and because of it cannot see very well. Her diabetes is now well under control by twice daily insulin shots. She is a strong and happy dog who shows no sign of slowing down, but because of her age and condition we are not sure how long she has left. We would like her to be in a loving home where she can be with someone all the time. Please contact Yuki at yukikawahara@hotmail.com for more info on Shelby!

      Breed: Great Dane-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Dane / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Gus is a 1.5yo lab/dane mix. He might be big on the outside, but he thinks he's little on the inside. He is a sweet and sensitive boy, and can be a little insecure, but super silly at other times. He is great with people and has lived with cats. He is crate-trained, housebroken, and knows basic commands and even some tricks! He walks pretty well on leash, but he prefers to stay at home where he feels safe and comfortable. He would do well living alone or with a female dog, as he can be more intimidated by male dogs. He is a lower/moderate energy dog who would be the perfect companion dog for someone who lives in a quiet neighborhood or in a more rural area, and with someone who is more of a homebody.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ivy is a 2-3yo pit mix who only weighs 40lbs. She's a very sweet, timid, and docile girl who is a poet at heart and needs the countryside quiet to keep her soul at peace and comfort. The busy city life can scare and overwhelm her, so please no apartments or crazy children running around. She does well with big and little dogs (proper intros, of course!) and has paid no mind to kitty cats. She will snuggle up to mellow dogs that just want to hang out. For someone with a patient heart and lots of love to give, Ivy more than repays that kindness once she feels safe and accepted. She's crate trained and housebroken. This girl is available for adoption through The Perfect Dog rescue - which makes sense, because though quite the introvert, this little navy bean is, indeed, the perfect dog ❤️ Please contact Diana at (510) 333-4420 or theperfectdogrescue@gmail.com or fill out the adoption application: http://www.theperfectdog.org/TPDadoptapp.doc

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Achilles is a 9yo cattledog mix who came into the shelter as an owner-surrender in early 2015. He has the gentle, kind soul of a medium-sized dog who has unfortunately been through many homes recently through no fault of his own. Because of this, Achilles is a little slow to warm up to new people but is interested and does bond with you after just a few days. He will reward you with a little happy dance and some "stump-waggin'" whenever he sees you! All this guy really needs is a comfy corner spot in a stable quiet home environment again! Achilles is fully housebroken, crate-trained, treat motivated, good on leash, tolerant of other dogs, and a quiet companion. He just wants to be near his people again so would be happiest in a home with a full-time caretaker. Achilles is being fostered with a number of large dogs and a 14yo child. He can get a bit overwhelmed by a lot of noisy living so would blossom best in a home with a retired couple to dote on him again. Achilles has been in rescue since 2/18/2015 and would really like to find his forever home to live out the rest of his golden years!

      Roger

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Australian Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier (Parson Russell Terrier) / Mixed. ** PLEASE READ HIS DESCRIPTION BEFORE CALLING/APPLYING! ** His super cute looks are deceiving! Roger is a "project dog"! Which means he will need on-going training and is ONLY available to an SF Bay Area experienced, sport dog home. Roger is a 6 year old, 10lb Australian Terrier/Jack Russell mix, and this guy is ALL terrier!! (His personality is probably closest to that of a Jack Russell) He loves to play with other small dogs, is good with cats (although sometimes he wants to play with them if they run). He LOVES to play (can’t say this enough), and he is very high energy. He has learned a handful of tricks (is a titled Advanced Trick Dog), and he competes in USDAA Agility (with two titles already- SPS and PD)!, so he must go to a home that can continue dog sports with him, and keep him very active, both mentally and physically. He’s like the energizer bunny, and he is one of the smartest dogs we have ever met, scary smart! He does also love to snuggle with his person and give kisses. He’s crate-trained and housebroken. His only issue (besides his energy and intelligence level) is *fear aggression toward strangers* (will bite if a stranger approaches, reaches their hand for/toward him, or spooks him), but with lots of patience, management, training (counter conditioning), and carefully monitored socialization, his fear has decreased, but it may never go completely away, so you can never let your guard down with him. He has gotten a LOT better in his foster home over the last several years, but will need someone to continue the right kind of training with him. He does seem to warm up much faster to young women than to older people or men. This is why he’d do best in a home with NO children and with someone experienced with terrier or high energy breeds (like herding dogs) and near-professional dog behavior experience. Once you give this dog a chance, you will fall in love! He’s really such an absolutely brilliant dog, the life of the party! Roger has been in rescue since 3/2011. Roger is neutered, up to date on his shots, microchipped, and will come with a collar, harness, leash, and bag of food!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). *courtesy listing* Pepito's age is unknown but I'm guessing about five years old, neuter chihuahua male, about 5 pounds. He is very skittish of people but does very well with other friendly dogs. He is looking for a home with someone with a lot of patience as he has to learn to trust his human. He lived in abandon lot for and unknown time which might have help become feral. He likes to bolt out the door if he has the opportunity. At my home with my dogs, he has made a lot progress, he follows their lead and it's begin to play with my female Yorkie, I think he might be in love with her :) which is actually very cute to watch...He loves meal time and waits patently while bowls are being prepared. He now wags with his tail when good things happen. He is crate trained, for a chihuahua he is very quite barks only when needed to communicate. Pepito needs some to show him love and to assure him the world isn't such a bad place.

A few treats helps speed up the process. He likes to chase cats and bark at them, but he’s used to being around them. He is crate-trained. He would greatly benefit from some training classes. Murray is bonded to another little dog (Tina on our website), but they can go to separate homes. He is a sweet little guy who craves lots of attention and could use more activity each day than he is currently getting.
