More About Chihuahua 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: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). “Hi. I’m Charlie. Aren’t I a cute little 8 pound nugget? I’m mellow and low maintenance. I just need my several, quick walks throughout the day to do my business (I’m potty trained) and then I love to borrow under a cover and snuggle up with you on the couch. I’m dog friendly and quiet unless someone new comes over. I’m approx 6 years old and the rescue took care of getting me up to date on all shots and microchipped. I’m ready for my forever home. I’d be great for a retiree and a quiet, calm household, as I don’t require a lot of exercise and too much commotion may stress me out.” Charlie is a calm and quiet chihuahua. He’s not yappy. He loves his people and is very loyal once he feels secure. He’s happiest going for a short walk then snuggling on the couch. He always gives me a greeting when I return home. Charlie gets along with my Yorkies and visiting Norwich Terrier.Charlie will do anything for a treat! For more info call/text Stefanie at 954-562-8813 or email savinggracefl@gmail.com.

      Breed: Mastiff
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff (short coat). BeBe is a 4 yr old, female, 75 lb Italian Mastiff. She is a true gem and ready for a lifetime home. She loves to play with her toys, go for walks and pretend she is a 10 lb lapdog. It takes her a few minutes to warm up to new people and animals, but once she does, she is a forever friend. She is also a wonderful protector with her very deep bark. BeBe's tail is always wagging. She is super loving and you can always tell how she's feeling. Her best friend is a 20lb Boston and an 8 lb MinPin/Mix. She loves cats and hasn't been around children very much. Unfortunately, she does not get along with alpha females or other dogs that are aggressive towards her. She would do well with a mellow male dog (any size). BeBe loves to lay in the sunshine. Her personality is quite mellow and she's a low energy dog. She needs a home that offers her a safe environment, where she feels loved and protected. She loves to give and receive love and will happily flop over on her back for a nice, long belly rub. Since she is shy when she meets someone new, her new family will need to go a bit slow when first meeting her. BeBe is crate trained, however given the choice she would prefer to lay on a couch or bed. She recently had knee surgery that healed very well. $250 adoption fee includes neuter, immunizations, and microchip.
