Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Chihuahua (short coat). Oy Chihuahua!! That's me, Buddy! I am an excellent companion dog, only about 7 years old and the most loveable, sweetest little fellow you'll ever meet! Part of my irresistible cuteness is that sometimes my tongue hangs out because I'm missing a few teeth! I'm seeking a wonderful home where I can share all of this love! I have a heart murmur that requires me to take a daily pill (which only costs $20/month). I can't be neutered because of my heart murmur, so therefore I pee on things. I'm also crate and house trained, up to date on my shots and I get along with other dogs and cats. If you are looking for a gentle, little lap dog then please fill out my adoption application and one of the kind folks here at AMMF will be in touch soon! Our adoption process is below: 1. Submit an application and it will be processed, evaluated and we will contact the vet and personal references; 2. All other applications that have been submitted on Buddy will also be processed (best suited applicant is chosen, not first come first serve); 3. Schedule a home visit; and 4. Adoption is finalized when the best-fitting home is found for Buddy. If you have young children and/or other pets and everyone gets along, Buddy will be able to stay at your home and do a foster to adopt for about a two-week trial period. If all is going well after the trial period, the adoption will then be finalized. Our adoption fee for Buddy is $150.00.

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: Beagle
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). This is Diesel aka Bubbaroo. He is a 5 year old fun loving boy who deserves his forever family. Diesel is very apprehensive at first and takes time to warm up and trust. He has been in a foster home for the past two months with his fur sisters and human kid. Diesel would do best in a home with another dog and someone who is home part or all day. He's currently crated during the day and is crate trained. He runs around the house and loves snoozing on the end of your bed or couch when he can. He is good with the 6 yr old child. However, he does get scared at certain noises. Diesel needs someone who will be patient and loving. He has come a long way in two months. With continued nurturing he will continue to blossom into the handsome and good mannered boy he is.

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). My name is Zena, but I'm affectionately known as Zena Bean. Wagging my tail is my absolute favorite thing to do; and it's contagious, too! When my foster mommy gets excited, she even does a "zena wag" herself. I am an amazingly cute shar pei mix. I am approximately 4 years old and I simply ADORE all people. I enjoy walks and even jogging with my foster mom. After a long walk, you can always find me airing out in front of the fan. I love the way the wind feels in my hair! I am fully vetted, crate trained and house trained. Did I mention I smile all time? I simply just love to be with my people. And, I am great with kids! And, while I love my foster mom, I would really like to have a forever family that I can call my own! In the interest of full disclosure, I need to be an only dog. I do not like or get along with other dogs and cats. My foster mom thinks it’s because i was never properly socialized. I am a work in progress, and I am correctable in public. I have had professional training, but still am not ready to co-exist with other dogs and cats. If you will take me home and love me forever, please go to www.allmuttsmatter.org to apply for me.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund (short coat). Hi my name is Fatboy and I am looking for my retirement home! My dad got really sick and he loved me so much that he felt the best thing for me was to find a new home. I would prefer a home where you can give me all of the attention, but if you have another senior dog I may be ok with him or her. I am crate trained, but would rather not be in one. My foster mom tells me that I probably wouldn't be good for an apartment because I like to talk a lot. In my defense, I am probably talking just because I want to be close to you. I would love to have a lap to snuggle in. I like to play with toys and go on walks. I love going for car rides. If someone is home to see my signs, I am house trained. If you are looking for a buddy to retire with, then go to www.allmuttsmatter.org to apply for me. Luv Fatboy!
