Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. THE PIT BULL AND THE CHIHUAHUA – A LOVE STORY They were spotted walking together along the road, but soon disappeared into a field. So began the rescuer’s quest to get the two off the street. Her persistence eventually paid off as she spotted them in the distance. She called out, hoping they would respond. The pit bull came to her immediately. He was a gentle, sweet dog. It was apparent that he was a senior and very tired. He barely had the energy to get into the car, but he did with a little help. The little Chihuahua was a bit more of a problem, darting back and forth, not trusting the situation – so the rescuer just stood by the car and waited to see if the little dog would seek out his friend. Sure enough he soon decided to take a chance and hopped up into the car to be with his buddy. The dogs were taken to Orange County Animal Care Center.The following morning, the volunteer went to Orange County shelter to rescue the two dogs, where she saw them sleeping side by side. The little Chihuahua had to stay to be neutered, so the senior pit bull was taken to our kennel. He was very sweet, no aggression at all, and he allowed the volunteer to pick him up and put him in her car. Two days later a volunteer went to pick up the chihuahua, a sweet little dog. The worker at the shelter said he seemed a little forlorn, and may have been missing his friend. It was true – he looked at you with weary eyes, his tail and ears held low, and walked with a slow gait. Arriving at the kennel, the pit bull was fetched for the reunion. It could not have been more rewarding for the change in the little Chihuahua was immediate – up came that tail and those ears, and he ran up to the pit bull, smelling him all over. The pit bull being a little older and more sedentary, simply licked him in the face. They had found each other again - our little odd couple...Oscar and Felix. Sadly Oscar passed away one year ago. Little Felix, more than ever, needs his own home. Won't you consider being his hero? Donation of $150 for dog adoption includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, and a microchip.

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.
