Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). IF INTERESTED IN CHITO, PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT www.pamperedpetsanimalrescue.org and fill out our online application. Chito's adoption fee is $150.00 Meet Chito. Chito is a 4 year old chihuahua weighing approximately 6 lbs. Chito has plenty of spunk and personality, he gets along with other dogs but does like to play and sometimes if the other dog is not on the same page, they may be a little annoyed at Chito. Chito LOVES his people!. Chito is potty trained and does well on a leash although we would prefer a fenced in yard for him since he was brought into a shelter as a stray. Chito does not like to be crated but he does just fine having run of the house while his people are gone. And if you are looking for a lap dog, Chito is your man!!!

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.

      Breed: Chipin
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Miniature Pinscher / Mixed. Jack's adoption fee is $150.00. If interested in Jack, please go to our website and fill out our online application at www.pamperedpetsanimalrescue.org. We cannot drive more than 50 miles one way to perform a home visit. Jack is a one and a half year old Chihuahua mix. Jack only weighs 8 lbs. so he is a little dude with a big personality. He is very cautious at first, but once he knows he is safe and trusts his people, he is very sweet. Jack would do best in a fenced in yard. He loves to play with his foster brothers and loves to cuddle up with them to take naps. Jack would not do well around small children as he gets a bit excited at times and plays rough. Jack would do well in a home where his people have knowledge of the Chihuahua breed, as they can be territorial at times. Jack all in all is a sweetheart, he just had a rough start to his life and needs lots of love and attention!
