For more information about the pet, the adoption process, or our program please contact the Volunteer Adoption Coordinator listed below. Because animals are adopted/rescued daily, please also check the United Hope for Animals Facebook page to see if an animal is still available OR call the Baldwin Park Shelter at 626-962-3577. When inquiring about an animal, please reference the animal’s ID number. This will enable the volunteer or Baldwin Park employee to locate the status of the pet. Thank you for supporting rescue. Pet Information CONTACT: UHA ADOPTION COORDINATOR SANDRA AT 323-350-7207 OR AT sandraburkhardt07@yahoo.com Description: A5030688 Vernon is a curious 10-year-old dark-chocolate (with white age icing) neutered male Chihuahua and Dachshund mix (aka Chiweenie) who came to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on February 4th as a stray from West Covina. Weighing 9 lbs, Vernon is the perfect plug-and-play dog who will thrive in any type of home. Vernon is great on leash and loves to walk and explore rather than be held. He shows signs of housebreaking and has a moderate energy level. Calm and sweet with other dogs, Vernon would be happy to meet new friends with you on adventures in your neighborhood. Right now, Vernon has a tiny (pink blush) cherry eye (usually easily removed by a vet), but that doesn’t stop him from looking all around and getting to know everyone. He’ll make a great indoor pet and companion for any individual or family (as long as any children know to respect his tiny size).

Overview: The Chiweenie is a mix between the Chihuahua and a Dachshund. This mix makes a good pet in homes with older or no children.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Weight (lbs): 5-15
Height (in): 10-18
Colors: black and brown, fawn, chestnut, silver, sand, black, parti color

Temperament: Chiweenies will get along with older, gentle children. They may not tolerate other dogs or animals well.

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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). COURTESY LISTING CONTACT: Katja at katja@hope4animals.org or 951-973-2757 NICKY is a delightful white-with-black one-year old spayed female Pit Bull mix who was rescued with her ten tiny puppies. Nicky's pups have all been adopted, and now it's time for this lovely young gal to find a loving home in which she can be the baby. Weighing 48 lbs, Nicky is a sweet, attentive, and playful dog. She would like to be part of an active household where she can join you on walks or hikes. Like all teenage dogs, she likes to do things and be part of daily activities. Nicky is crate trained and walks well on leash; she would benefit from continued obedience to keep her focused and help her mature into a breed ambassador. She is a smart dog who wants to please, and will thrive in a dog-experienced home that understands that all dogs need guidance and structure. Nicky gets along well with most dogs, but will do best as a solo dog so she can be queen of her own castle and dote on you fully. We expect she would enjoy being part of a household with kids, too. Nicky is so loving and happy, and will be an awesome best friend. Nicky is spayed, microchipped, and current on vaccines. Application, home check, and adoption fee required.

Pet Information CONTACT: UHA ADOPTION COORDINATOR Katja at 951-973-2757 or katja@hope4animals.org Description: A5034791 Ellie Mae is a gentle, eager-to-please 7-year-old copper-and-white female Pit Bull mix (who we think is some combination of Rhodesian Ridgeback and something smaller) who was rescued from a high-intake shelter where she was a staff and volunteer favorite. Weighing 34 lbs, Ellie Mae is as sweet as pie, and entirely focused on her human. She is happy and at ease with all kinds of people, including kids. She walks respectably on leash and shows signs of being housebroken. Her charm and gentleness earned Ellie Mae a spot in a training program to participate a literacy program in which kids read out loud to well-mannered dogs (her adopter can continue to do this with her or not). Ellie Mae has outstanding social skills with other dogs when out-and-about, but she prefers to be the queen of her own castle at home (or might do OK cohabiting with a smaller dog). We think Ellie Mae is a move-in-ready pup for any individual or family who wants a charming, no-fuss indoor pet and companion, and she is perfect for any loving home seeking a calm, easy-going medium-sized best friend.

Goose is an alumnus of UHA's Shelter Support Program. GOOSE (formerly Mufasa) is a fantastic 7-year-old cream-and-tan neutered male Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Pit Bull mix who was rescued from a high-intake public shelter. Weighing 66 lbs, Goose is a big love bug who savors human company and likes to do whatever you're doing, whether that's going for a walk, having a dip in the pool, or just lounging around the house. He has a big personality: he’s super joyous and funny, and grabs everyone’s attention with his happy smile. He walks respectably on leash, knows how to sit, and is housebroken. Goose gets along well with other dogs, but would be happiest as king of his castle in his permanent home, or perhaps paired with a well-matched female. Goose is so full of love and happiness, and will thrive in any loving home that makes him a central part of daily life. We can guarantee Goose will fill your life with laughter!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). **THIS IS A COURTESY POST FOR UHA. My name is Zuli and I am looking for my forever home (hopefully around San Diego, where I am located!) I am about 18-months-old and I am a bluenose Pit Bull mix puppy. I am full of lots of puppy energy! I adore playing with other dogs and get very excited around playtime. I currently live with FIVE other doggies who are my best friends, and I am currently being trained how to control my energy level. When I go to my new home, I will need to continue to work with trainer so I can become the best canine citizen there is! I ride very well in the car and I am currently potty trained. I know how to listen to my foster mama and will only chew on appropriate toys. I walk very well on leash, and I also know many commands! I know how to "sit," "wait," "down," "leave it," "stay", and "easy." I also know how to "shake" and "roll over" (both ways!) I get along very well with older children and can respect younger children, but I probably shouldn't live with them since I might accidentally knock them over with my puppy energy and enthusiasm. I am spayed, up to date on shots and rabies, and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting me, please contact my foster mama, Heather, at obeachgirl@yahoo.com ZULI’S VIDEO: http://youtu.be/TG8v_y7MYpQ MORE PHOTOS OF ZULI: http://on.fb.me/1smmDe6
