Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Hi everybody! My name is Monica and I am a very sweet girl, just a little shy until I get to know you. Once I get to know you I will be your snuggle buddy and constant companion! I love treats and mom says I am very food motivated, whatever that means. I am crate trained and am very good with my house training as long as you keep me on a schedule. I really love snuggling up under covers and just want a forever family that I can love and adore. Could that be you?

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.

      Chalupa Batm...

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Raleigh, NC
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Chalupa Batman is such a loving little guy. He's been through a lot recently, with his owner passing away. He enjoys going for walks and is working on his leash manners (we don't think he has ever been on one before). He also loves snuggling on the couch with his favorite human and will become very attached to the person caring for him. In true chihuahua fashion, he can be greedy with his belongings and people but is being taught now to share. He hasn't had much one on one time with men, so it takes him longer to warm up to them than with women. Car rides and water might be his favorite things! He loves having his bed in the front seat and watching his surroundings & he likes to sneak into the shower (makes it easy to give him baths!). He doesn't play with toys much but loves to be petted and scratched. He is very well potty trained but needs to be with someone who can take him out for extra breaks. CB is crate trained, very quiet and rarely barks for anything! So far we've learned he is very easy going around other dogs unless they invade his space. He lives with 2 larger dogs in his foster home, but may feel less threatened with dogs his own size. He is estimated to be around 7 years old. CB is listed as "special needs" because he does have a heart murmur, and takes medication every day to prevent him from getting sick. Hopefully he will never have any problems related to the murmur! Adoption fee of $135 includes his neuter, extensive dental surgery (and cleaning), microchip, deworming, vaccines, heartworm testing, and flea/tick/heartworm prevention Apply here: http://2pawsup.org/forms/form2.html?pet=Chalupa

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. My name is Milo I'm looking to be the top dog in a one dog family home. Can't wait for all of your attention!! I'm a little shy when we first meet but I open up with lots of love. I am already potty trained and learn new commands quickly. My style is more laid back; you will most likely find me on the couch snuggled up with you. Anyone with treats is my best friend. So what do you say am I a catch or what :) Milo is listed as "special needs" because he does have a heart murmur, and takes medication every day to prevent him from getting sick. Hopefully he will never have any problems related to the murmur! Adoption fee of $135 includes his neuter, extensive dental surgery (and cleaning), microchip, deworming, vaccines, heartworm testing, and flea/tick/heartworm prevention Apply here: http://2pawsup.org/forms/form2.html?pet=Milo

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Raleigh, NC
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Roxie is a typical chihuahua! She loves her caretaker the most, but she warms up quickly to new people as well. That's huge, since she just lost her original owner a month ago. She is super snuggly once on the bed or couch with you, but she will declare it her own once she is up (except for people, they are OK)! She loves to take long naps with her human and has shown interest in soft toys- she will carry them around the house. She picked up on leash training very quickly and is a smart little girl. She has done well with other dogs when we bring them on walks together, or if they are walking around the house- she has shown some interest in playing with other small dogs. This 6 year old diva would love nothing more than to be the center of your world! Adoption fee of $135 includes her spay, dental cleaning, microchip, deworming, vaccines, heartworm testing, and flea/tick/heartworm prevention Apply here: http://2pawsup.org/forms/form2.html?pet=Roxie

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Raleigh, NC
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Chihuahua. Axl is a happy, fun loving dude. Despite his recent misfortune of losing his owner, he seems to love life and is always smiling. He loves to play and run around with his toys. He is estimated to be 5 years young and as most chihuahuas, he can be stingy when it comes to sharing his belongings and people but has been receptive in learning how to share. Axl is a super friendly boy but hasn't spent much time around men, so it takes him longer to warm up to them, than with women. Axl is crate trained, very quiet and rarely barks. Axl is potty trained but does need frequent potty breaks when he is not in his crate. So far we've learned that Axl is very easy going with cats and other dogs, unless they invade his space. He currently lives with 1 larger dog, 1 smaller dog and 2 cats in his foster home. He seems interested in playing and would do really well playing with dogs his own size. Adoption fee of $90 (reduced since he was already neutered) includes his dental cleaning, microchip, deworming, vaccines, heartworm testing, and flea/tick/heartworm prevention Apply here: http://2pawsup.org/forms/form2.html?pet=Axl
