Posted Breed: Havanese / Lhasa Apso. Rocky loves to play with his ball, loves car rides and loves to sit on your lap, but he is not a kisser! Rocky needs an experienced groomer when it's time for a bath or a hair cut, when things aren't on Rocky's terms, he will react in the only way he knows how, and try and bite. The quickest way to Rocky's heart is by spending some time with him, loving him and lots of treats! Rocky will love both men or women, or both, bit wild not be an ideal fit for a child. Rocky travel's well and has even been on an airplane... he was a perfect gentleman.

More About Havanese 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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed. See Kiwi's HomepageGo to our official websiteYou can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.I'm Kiwi the little chihuahua dachshund mix and I'm so excited to enjoy the world around me. For almost 8 years, I spent my life inside of a small crate inside someone's home. I was never taken for walks, held or petted. My crate was my bathroom, sleeping area, and eating area. Humans weren't very kind to me.When the day came that someone finally reached in to touch me, I did the only thing I knew to protect myself - bite! I wasn't sure what would await me outside of the only tiny world I knew and I didn't know what it meant to have a hand coming toward me. Thankfully, the human was patient and persistant and finally got me out of the crate. I was given a temporary home where I learned to trust a little more and enoy life outside of a cage and learn what it is like to not be imprisoned.Now, I'm looking for my forever home. A home where I don't have to worry about crates again. I would prefer to be baby gated into a small room where I can feel secure or better yet, just stay home with you all day! I know how to go potty outside now but if left alone for long periods of time will still go inside. I do love to go outside and love the grasson my feet! I get along great with other dogs and I love attention. I probably wouldn't do well with a small child because I get very nervous when backed into a corner and I will resort to the only protection I know--snapping! My rescuers tell me that there are wonderful humans out there. Humans capable of loving me and being patient with me and touching me with a kind hand. I want that kind of human. I want to be free with you to be a dog and learn what it means to be loved just as I am.
