Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (long coat). Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Meet Bobby! Bobby is a super sweet dog that was rescued from the Mexicali dog pound. We don’t know how he came into the shelter, but he was likely a stray. ARWOB was able to exit him along with several other dogs. When Bobby meets other dogs, at first he can sometimes act a bit manly and will jump really high when he is excited and happy. But the truth is, he is a big ham and loves to play with other dogs both large and small. Bobby is great with people and children and does okay with cats. He is currently learning to become house trained, but he has not had any accidents in the house or in his crate. He is still learning crate training, but is doing well learning how to be comfortable in his crate. Bobby can become vocal when he hears another dog bark, so his ideal situation will be with a family with a home and a yard or with an adopter who is a stay-at-home mom or retiree. That way he will get the attention he needs and someone to help him learn vocalization manners when he gets excited. We are looking for a foster and/or an adopter for this wonderful little man. Won’t you consider giving Bobby the love he deserves? If you are interested in fostering or adopting this handsome guy, please fill out an online application. Don’t wait! If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

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: San Diego, CA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Maltese / Mixed (long coat). Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Meet Mattie!! Mattie is an adorable little poodle/maltese mix who is looking for her forever home. She was pulled from a local San Diego shelter and has had a rather tough start in life. However, she has been making steady progress and we think in time she will blossom completely. Mattie’s new foster mom has already noticed incredible progress in the short time she has known her. Upon first meeting Mattie she was a bit nippy and growly, but with some treats and patience, she warmed up quickly. Her new foster mom noted that Mattie rode in the car like a champ and by the time they reached their destination, they were buddies. Mattie walks on a leash quite well and when her foster mom picked her up and held her while checking in at the vet, she was very comfortable in her arms. Mattie tends to be nippy and reactive when approached too quickly, but she did allow the vet to give her a treat and another staff member to pet her. She growled when she was in the exam room and heard another dog barking, but as soon as her foster mom corrected her she stopped. At this point Mattie just needs some patience and to build up her confidence when she finds herself in new situations. Her foster mom gives her a solid B on her behavior report card. Mattie would love nothing better than find her forever home where she can get the love she so deserves.

Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. ***Courtesy Listing*** Meet Charger, a lab/boxer who is looking for a home! This sweet boy has not had the best beginning and needs a loving and dedicated owner to patiently help him overcome his fears. He continues to demonstrate improvements with his training program. He is so eager to please and quite intelligent. He can demonstrate reactive behavior on leash/walks when fearful. Due to his behavioral issues in the past, it is important for him to be with someone who is willing to continue the training that we have started with a behavioralist so he can continue to grow. The trainer is confident that with consistency and confidence, Charger will make a great addition! He is a sweet and loving boy, but is nervous about the outside world. He did not receive normal socialization in his younger days and struggles with his confidence. Within his home, he loves to play with lots of toys and is extremely loving. He will stick by your side at all times! He loves to play and strives to please at all times! He plays with his foster dogs but is overly excited and is being taught proper dog etiquette. He doesn't realize that he is 50 lbs! He is crate trained, potty trained and currently learning the ropes to living in the human world! His foster family continues to diligently work on giving him the foundation to address his issues. They adore him and can't wait to see him happy in his permanent home!
