Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Please understand that we get many applications for our available dogs. We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Fostered in Hesperia, CA. Picked up pregnant from the Riverside shelter, whelped 3 pups. Sage came in way underweight & suffering from neglect. Sage is a very sweet older girl. She loves to be with you and wants to be in your lap. She does not like rowdy play with other dogs. She is a house guardian. She has typical small dog lap aggression. Sage would be a good emotional support dog. Needs a lap of her own. Quite house. Retired couple. Single woman. No other dogs. Birds, fish, lizards OK. Alert barker, probably not good in an apartment. She's pretty much house trained... .but if I'm gone too she still has accidents, even though she can work the dog door. She's had a rough life....so some should feel really good at making the rest of it the best it can be. Sage is being fostered in CA

More About Chiweenie 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.

We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Fostered in Las Vegas, NV Well, Hello! My name is Frida Xolo . I am 9 years old. I am a gentle girl and I like to snuggle even though I’m not SO little; I’m 40 pounds! I am completely hairless and I’m told I have really beautiful skin. I li ke to sunbathe and wander around the house and yard, short walks are good but I’m not really into running or jumping. I like the couch—but, that is as high as I jump and sometimes (I have to think about whether it’s worth the effort or not !) I don’t like the dark very much; my foster mom gave me a night light so I can find the doggie door at night and I like that because I can find where to go when I have to go, if you know what I mean! I’m not completely blind but, I don’t see very well. I don’t need a lot of toys—my foster mom tried to get me to play with some but I don’t understand why she keeps offering me weird things in my mouth that aren’ t food. Silly h uman. I have a low thyroid so I’m not super energetic but , I do have medication for that and it makes me feel better. I also have some allergies but they don’t really show up as long as I’m eating on my diet. I’m feeling great these days! I bark and dance when I’m excited and if you don’t pay attention to me, I might hug your leg to let you know I love and missed you! Do you like hugging, snuggling and occasional short walks? Maybe YOU are my forever person!

      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Hairless. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Please understand that we get many applications for our available dogs. We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Hello, my name is Artie. I am just 5 months old now. I am a Chinese Crested Hairy Hairless. I love people and attention. I like to play outside and wow there are so many new things to explore. I need to learn what going outside to potty is. Everything is new and exciting but a little scary too. I would love another friend in the house to play with. I like to snuggle with my people. I am a great eater. I love kids but I am just a little guy so maybe older kids that know to look for me so I don't get stepped on would be better. I heard the word cat, but I have no idea what a cat is, so I don't know if that could be a friend or not. I am looking for my wonderful forever home. I can't wait to see who that is going to be. Is that you? feel free to ask my foster mom any questions you may have at adopt.nakedk9rescue@rescuegroups.org.

We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Fostered in Las Vegas, NV Hi! My Name is Alex and I am a Chinese Crested Powderpuff. I am One and a half years old and my foster mom says that I am a good boy! I love toys and playing hide and seek with socks you drop on the floor. I don’t destroy my toys or socks though—I have bones to chew on and they taste better. I love dinnertime, play time and nap time, not necessarily in that order. I love people and other animals ; I’m not really the loner type. I love to cuddle, be held, carried, or just be right next to you while on leash. I am not a pushover though—I will be the man of your house if I have anything to say about it . I don’t have much of a voice but I have enough to let you know when something is important, like when that guy comes to deliver stuff. I don’t like him—he never brings me anything, so, I make sure to let him know that I live here too!! I’m not opposed to bath time—it’s not my favorite but I do like the hair dryer. I’m practicing my modeling poses to be the next Max ell dog when my hairs are getting dried, I know I’m my most handsome after a good blowout. I want to share my time with my person; I’m happy as long as I am in good company. I want to stare into their eyes and show them how much I love them. Are you looking for a forever companion? I sure am!

We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Fostered in Indianapolis Gracie is: Adorable, cuddly, playful and sweet. Little Gracie’s biggest wish is to be the center of your universe! Gracie loves her person more than anything, whether that means cuddling on the couch or following them from room to room. She is fun and playful – she loves fetching a stuffie and will bring it back to you and politely ‘drop it’ when asked. Gracie appears to h ave had some training and knows ‘sit,’ and she is used to going outside to potty – she has never had a pee accident in her foster home so far. When she came to rescue s he needed to gain a little weight so she has had a few poo accidents inside, but foster mom thinks it is because her body was getting used to eating more dog food (a normal amount) every day. Gracie is crate trained and has never had an accident inside her crate . While in foster care Gracie has shown a definite preference for women (she tolerates men, and will eventually warm up to them over a few days) , so it would be great if a woman could be her primary care taker. Gracie has also shown a tendency to be a bit overprotective of her person, especially when new guests enter the house. She has nipped (not bitten) at the hands or ankles of guests entering the house, so for that reason, she would need a home without small children or small children visitors. She is currently being fostered with a female toddler and has never been anything but sweet to her, but it’s better to be on the safe side. In an ideal world, her perfect adopter would be a woman that is well versed in dog behavior so they could correct Gracie before she ever tries to get nippy with guests ( or else she would need to be crated or put in a separate room when guests come over ) . Gracie is currently being fostered with other dogs without incident but she does not need a canine companion, she woul d probably prefer to be the only dog in order to lap up all the affection!
