We are an Edmonton Region rescue and adopt out only in this area.  ALL ABOUT CHICO. BIO: Chico is 1and 1/2 years old. ALL ABOUT CHICO. Available for adoption. BIO: Chico has been in his foster home for 6 months and is doing great. Chico was very anxious around people at first but is now starting to relax. Chico will now climb on the couch and happily sit with people and other dogs. He will hop up on me and nuzzle and wiggle into my chest very rarely we are finally getting some happy belly rubs. He does not like constantly being touched, loves being with his person and being carried but will often growl and choose to be alone if petted too much. He needs patience. He is still learning to trust and love people, and will require a home that can understand that he needs his time to trust new people. Chico is good with other dogs, and doesn't bark. He is playful and loves toys and chasing balls, sometimes he may excitedly bark when playing. Chico is house trained, but doesn't like the cold. You have to put him outside when it is cold. If left alone he may whine a little, but is short lived. We have really grown to love little Chico. We have seen him grow from a scared growling neglected guy into a playful, happy, toy-hoarding, funny little buddy. His future home needs to understand that he has been mistreated in the past, and that Chico has trust issues with humans. He is a very nice dog, and is a great companion, but he needs a quiet stable home and someone the doesn't want to smother him with affection right away. He will be your best friend and love you, but new things make him nervous, and he will warn you that he is uncomfortable by growling. You need to listen to his cues and give him space when he needs it. It has been a long road with Mr.Chico, and I know someone out there will love him as much as we do.

More About Chug 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: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Oh, hi there.. Are you looking at me? Well this is interesting.. I am a little shy and timid at times but have a big heart to share once I am able to trust you. Unfortunately I am afraid the Y chromosome and we think I may have been mistreated in the past :'(. I do not like sticky little hands in my face so little kids would not be very good for me to be around. Cats are a strange thing to me and when they run I like to chase them, as they look like a weird dog to me. When it is time to go to bed I sometimes run away and leave a piddle trail to follow, as I am a submissive little girl. I also will cry when I am first put to bed :( maybe read me a bedtime story? So Condo or Apartments are out of the question due to my noisiness. I am pee-pad trained but will also go outside if it is nice out and I LOVE to lay in the sun, like omg best day ever! I am content to stay home and play with other dogs my size as long as they do not get up in my face. I am still unsure about the whole leash and walking idea but I am getting better, I just need help with training and patience. Please tell my rescue about your family and why you think I would be a good fit in your family. I need mandatory force-free obedience training and a very secure, fenced yard to keep me safe. *Licorice requires force free dog obedience training classes with a trainer on our list of approved certified dog trainers on our list.* Licorice is not suitable for a home with small children under the age of 8.

      Posted Breed: Norwich Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Goldie is a Norwich Terrier Mix 5 years old and weighs 8.2 pounds. VETTING COMPLETED by our rescue. SPAYED Dental cleaning Vaccines updated Rabies vaccine DA2PPV vaccine Dewormed with Drontal Plus Nexguard for Fleas and Ticks Heartworm tested negative results Proheart 6 injection to protect against heartworms Microchipped with EIDAP microchips.

Small Children - Over the age of 8. Adults and Teenagers - Yes We are currently accepting applications for Adoption for Goldie. Please email us at heartprintsdogrescue@gmail.com to request an adoption application which we will email to you. *Please tell us about your home and family as match best fit for the small breed dogs in our care.* Adoption fee: $500.00 I've got the Midas touch! Just look at my gorgeous colour!! Hello, my name is Goldie. If you wonder where I got my name just look at me in the sun, I shine bright like a diamond ring. I am also a quiet girl of approximately 5 years old, don't ask for specifics as you know its rude to ask a lady her age. I prefer the company of cats, as long as they are good with small dogs, but I am okay with other small dogs as long as they are polite. Litter boxes are lovely little treasure troves waiting for me to dig up, although I always get sick after treasure hunts :(. I also have a tendency to steal the cats food even though it can make me sick afterwards, it tastes so much better than MY food.. not fair. Children are nice but I do not like being surrounded by young children (8yrs and older please), they just get too hyper around me and that gets me upset. I would like to play and be in an active household but not a busy one where I won't be given the attention I need. I am house trained as long as I am let out often to be able to do my business outside, my terms are non-negotiable and if they are not met there will be accidents :(. I love to sleep in the bed at night and not in a kennel. I will cry in a kennel as it is a very scary experience for me and will be an unpleasant one for you. Please tell my rescue about your family and why you think I would be a good fit in your family. I need mandatory force-free obedience training and a very secure, fenced yard to keep me safe.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! Hi! Hello! Wazzup! I’m Josie! A yorkie/terrier mix, maybe mixed with Tigger, because my bottom is made out of springs! I’m bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy. Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun! Another great thing about me is my wiry hair. It can make me look stressed out or hungover, but just think of all the memes you can make! We’ll be insta-famous! All jokes aside, I am a very loving dog, somewhere between 1 and 2 years old, and still as playful as a puppy. I’m a lean, mean, 12 lbs jumping machine, but I’m great with children (6+, please) and other similar sized dogs. The terrier in me likes to chase cats, so probably best that I find a home without any feline temptations. #DogsRuleCatsDrool I’m house trained, but my cues to go outside are a bit subtle, and I’ll only wait so long before it’s a problem. A problem for you, haha! I’m sweet, I’m sassy, I’m a whole lotta fun. But the most wonderful thing about Josie is, I'm the only one! Energy Level: Medium - High Grooming: Yes Clipping 4 times a year nails every 4 -6 weeks and baths. Children: YES over 6 years old and up! Large breed dogs - NO Small breed dogs : YES CATS: NO - They are too much fun to chase and this is a a trait of a terrier breed. VETTING COMPLETED by the rescue. Spayed Female DA2PPV vaccine Rabies vaccine Dewormed with Drontal Plus Nexguard for Fleas and Ticks Heartworm tested negative results Proheart 6 injection to protect against heartworms 2 Microchipped EIDAP microchips OBEDIENCE training classes required: YES Adoption Fee is $500.00 which helps try and cover all vetting, transport costs and care for Josie.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Well hello there. Do you have treats?? Do you want to snuggle me?? I could always use some love :) My name is Rusty and I look like a cute little fox. My rescue friends think I am a chihuahua/fox terrier, all I know is that I am cute and that is all that matters to me. I love to play with my friend Sienna in our foster home, I'm surprised we have not worn grooves in the floor yet. After a long day of playing I love to snuggle up to my humans and sleep in their arms, until I see a cat. Cats are strange creatures, they look like dogs but are way different. They sure do make for good chase friends though, they can run super fast and I haven't been able to catch one yet but I got close!! The cat creature makes a weird sound so I don't think they like me very much :'(. I love to be outside in the sunshine and enjoy my walks. Walks are second best in the world, only after playing with my other small dog friends. I have so much energy that I don't know how I can keep it contained in my small body, but that could be why I play so often and I am just over 1 year old. I am learning to go potty outside but sometimes its easier to go inside, the humans have a special room to do their business inside. Once you learn my ques and if you let me out often I shouldn't have any accidents in the house. Please tell my rescue about your family and why you think I would be a good fit in your family. I need mandatory force-free obedience training and a very secure, fenced yard to keep me safe as I can jump pretty high for my size. We are an Edmonton Region rescue and adopt out only in this area. HOUSE TRAINING: House trained at my foster home placement. This could change in a new environment and may takea bit while I adjust to your schedule and routine. OBEDIENCE TRAINING: Obedience training classes are mandatory with our rescue. Ask about our list of recommended trainers. FENCED YARD: A Secure Fenced yard is a must! RECOMMENDED BUILDING TYPE: House CHILDREN: No children under 10 CATS: No VETTING COMPLETED: Neutered, Vaccinated with DHPP, Rabies Vaccine, Dewormed X2 with Drontal Plus , Nexguard for Fleas and ticks, Microchipped (EIDAP), Heartworm tested negative results, Heartworm injection Proheart 6 injection to protect against Heartworms for 6 months. ADOPTION FEE: $500.00 includes all the vetting, transport costs and care/supplies we have done for the dog.  Our process for adopting: Please email us at heartprintsdogrescue@gmail.com to request an adoption application which will be emailed to you.
