Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). THIS IS YEAR 3 OF LIBBY IN RESCUE. Libby has been in rescue far too long. Having been thru so much in her short life it is past time she finds her forever home. It breaks our hearts to have her passed by over and over at the adoption events. Hit by a car, patched up by a shelter vet, terribly thin and injured a few days later she popped out 4 puppies! Libby Lou was barely out of puppyhood before she had her own puppies. The shelter volunteers were surprised if not shocked but thrilled to take the extra efforts to find a rescue willing to take her in. Whiskers, Tails and Ferals opened their arms and brought Libby Lou and her 4 pups to the Napa Valley. With time to ween her babies and recover from her injuries, Libby gained strength and trust in the Cassidy foster home. Now with her babies adopted, the eye-removal surgery well behind her, Libby feels the job as a mama is done. She nearly kicks up her paws she is so happy and feeling great! Libby made some beautiful puppies, worked hard to eat enough to keep them well fed and growing strong. Libby has strong work ethics, she must with her history. A bit protective, she will bark at someone she doesn't know, just to make sure that new person knows she has her one eye on them. Doesn't take too long or too many treats to win her over. Kids? Well over 10 would be best. Cats? Absolutely loves to ignore them. She loves to play with dogs about her size but does very well with the giant male Pyrenees she lives with. Also loves the small backyard she has to run around in and adores her chew bones and those of every other dog that leaves their chew unattended for even a second. She likes to hide them under her bed or under the pillow on the sofa. I found 5 of them in just one night. To see Libby now, happy and feeling great makes me realize how much better she feels. She is ready to go! If you think Libby Lou would be the perfect dog to complete your family then email Linda at lbredfire@sbcglobal.net. Libby attends the Saturday adoptions at the Petco." This dog comes spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, and more with an adoption fee/donation to Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa, CA.

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.
