Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). **VERNON IS LOCATED AT THE AGOURA SHELTER. PLEASE CONTACT THE AGOURA SHELTER AT: 818-991-0071. United Hope for Animals (UHA) is a volunteer group and does not have a facility for animals. This pet is part of our Shelter Support Program at the Baldwin Park Shelter. 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
Coat: The coat is short and smooth.
Character: The Chiweenie is energetic, affectionate and loyal to its owners.
Temperament: Chiweenies will get along with older, gentle children. They may not tolerate other dogs or animals well.
Care: The coat needs little care, just bathe as needed.
Training: The Chiweenie responds best to firm, consistent training. They may be difficult to housebreak.
Activity: This breed needs very little exercise.
Country of Origin: Afghanistan
Life Expectancy: 14-16

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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). CONTACT: For more information, please contact: jac2therescue@gmail.com. COURTESY LISTING. 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! GOOSE'S SHELTER VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZrGd84v2v4 Goose is neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccines. For more information, please contact: jac2therescue@gmail.com.

      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). CONTACT: Katja at katja@hope4animals.org or 951-973-2757 MONKEY is a charming 1-year-old brindle-and-white neutered male Bull Terrier mix (probably crossed with some German Shepherd, Pit Bull, or some other magical breeds) who was rescued from a high intake public shelter. Weighing 55 lbs, Monkey is a playful and affectionate young fellow who really knows how to monkey around! He is a favorite at doggy day care, and would be delighted to continue to have an active social life with other dogs in his forever home, including in a multi-dog home. Monkey is accustomed to living in a home with cats and other large dogs. He walks politely on leash, is crate trained and housebroken, and knows many key commands having completed a basic obedience course. Monkey's favorite activities include being with his people, going on walks, playing with other dogs, chewing on Nylabones, shredding paper products (we call him a "precylcer" because he loves to take paper out of the recycling bin and shred it), cuddling, sunbathing, watching people cook, and eating. He has adorable markings and we think it's extra special that he has brown eyelashes on one eye and white eyelashes on the other. Monkey is best suited to households with teenagers and adults only (we don't know why, but Monkey is uncomfortable around small children and while he responds well to training with this issue, at this time he will not be placed in a home with kids in residence under age 10; he loves tweens and teens). As is the case for many Bull Terriers, Monkey sizes up new people before he befriends them--but once you're his pal, you'll have his love and loyalty forever. Monkey will thrive in a household that will continue to provide the structure and guidance for him to develop into the outstanding adult dog he is meant to be. He will do especially well in a home that has previously had large-breed dogs. Monkey is a loyal and loving pup who will bring a lot of fun and friendship into his forever home. To see more Monkey, follow @katjamg7 on Instagram. Application, home check, and adoption fee are required. CONTACT Katja at katja@hope4animals.org or 951-973-2757 for more info and an application. MONKEY is a COURTESY LISTING and not part of UHA's Shelter Support program.

And trained by The Zen Dog in downtown Los Angeles. Bentley is a stunningly gorgeous mix (Catahoula hound? pit?), with a gleaming multicolored brindle coat and piercing yellow eyes. Bentley is a great adventure partner - he’s fast, agile, and would thrive on the interaction, stimulation, and exercise of lure coursing or agility. Bentley is phenomenal with other dogs and has yet to meet a dog he doesn't want to play with. He easily shares food and toys. He also gets along with cats. He is great on off leash hikes, going camping, or at the beach. Bentley's still working on his leash reactivity and meeting new people when they come to the house. But given what a hard worker he is, we don't expect this to be a forever issue and he will continue to gain confidence with a capable, committed adopter. In a perfect world Bentley would go to a quiet home with space and a canine playmate who will run and play with him . Come meet beautiful, playful Bentley.

      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
