More About Chiweenie 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.

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). My name is Domino and I am a happy, playful 4 year old male Jack Russell mix. I am great with kids and can play with them for hours. I am always ready for a game of fetch, a nice long walk or just running around the yard. 22 lbs of pure Love! Once play time is over my favorite thing to do is cuddle and have my big pointy ears scratched while I fall asleep. I am good with other dogs having been around dogs of all sizes since I was a puppy. I haven't been around any cats so I'm not sure how I would react around them just yet. I am house and crate trained, fully immunized, neutered and chipped. I would be a great addition to any family looking to add some more love and fun to their household. For more info call/text Teri at 561-400-1848 or email savinggracefl@gmail.com.

      Breed: Mastiff
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff (short coat). BeBe is a 4 yr old, female, 75 lb Italian Mastiff. She is a true gem and ready for a lifetime home. She loves to play with her toys, go for walks and pretend she is a 10 lb lapdog. It takes her a few minutes to warm up to new people and animals, but once she does, she is a forever friend. She is also a wonderful protector with her very deep bark. BeBe's tail is always wagging. She is super loving and you can always tell how she's feeling. Her best friend is a 20lb Boston and an 8 lb MinPin/Mix. She loves cats and hasn't been around children very much. Unfortunately, she does not get along with alpha females or other dogs that are aggressive towards her. She would do well with a mellow male dog (any size). BeBe loves to lay in the sunshine. Her personality is quite mellow and she's a low energy dog. She needs a home that offers her a safe environment, where she feels loved and protected. She loves to give and receive love and will happily flop over on her back for a nice, long belly rub. Since she is shy when she meets someone new, her new family will need to go a bit slow when first meeting her. BeBe is crate trained, however given the choice she would prefer to lay on a couch or bed. She recently had knee surgery that healed very well. $250 adoption fee includes neuter, immunizations, and microchip.
