Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (long coat). Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Meet Bobby! Bobby is a super sweet dog that was rescued from the Mexicali dog pound. We don’t know how he came into the shelter, but he was likely a stray. ARWOB was able to exit him along with several other dogs. When Bobby meets other dogs, at first he can sometimes act a bit manly and will jump really high when he is excited and happy. But the truth is, he is a big ham and loves to play with other dogs both large and small. Bobby is great with people and children and does okay with cats. He is currently learning to become house trained, but he has not had any accidents in the house or in his crate. He is still learning crate training, but is doing well learning how to be comfortable in his crate. Bobby can become vocal when he hears another dog bark, so his ideal situation will be with a family with a home and a yard or with an adopter who is a stay-at-home mom or retiree. That way he will get the attention he needs and someone to help him learn vocalization manners when he gets excited. We are looking for a foster and/or an adopter for this wonderful little man. Won’t you consider giving Bobby the love he deserves? If you are interested in fostering or adopting this handsome guy, please fill out an online application. Don’t wait!

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.

      Breed: Cairn Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cairn Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $200. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Meet Angie! Foster or Adopter WANTED! Angie is an adorable wired hair small terrier, full grown, approx 12-15lbs who was rescued a month ago from a home where both her sister and her were left behind in an abandoned home. These girls didn't get along or perhaps were fighting for resources since they were left alone without food or water for a week before neighbors noticed the dogs had been left behind. Both girls were rescued and had to be separated into different homes because they did not get along. Angie is ok around most dogs.... especially puppies or submissive dogs, but she is not really fond of dogs nor interested in being friends with them. She would do best in a home in which the adopters are looking for an excellent family dog who loves people and children who are looking to throw the ball around the yard or go hiking, walking, and exploring San Diego. She is not an active dog always, but enjoys being active which means if her family would like to go on an outing she is always ready to go, but if someone is just home or is a homebody she loves it too! She does ok around cats when people are present and keeping her in check, angie shouldnt be left home alone with the kitties because she may try to chase and do what little terriers do. Angie loves children, she can act indifferent when she first meets people but once she is in a home for a week or two she opens up and is the happiest with her family and people she knows. She is not going to be a nippy dog around strangers but she will also not be the most social around new people. She can be very snappy with other dogs, she does best with smaller male submissive or easy going male dogs. She doesnt have leash reactivity or tries to attack dogs, she just prefers to keep her distance from them especially dogs that are "in her face" without easy introduction. CONS - She doesn't seek to have doggy friendship unless its pups or small breed male goofy friendly dogs She has a habit of overmarking the perimeter of the house by kicking dirt around too. She will hyperactively do it the first couple weeks and it subsisses. In the house she will have a couple accidents at the beginning but with verbal correction she understands she is doign wrong and aims to improve and stop. PROS Great with people and children Not a big yappy barky dog unless its security wise No leash reactivity Good in the car crate trained great for a family or working individual, IDEALLY as the only dog or take a slow time to introduce properly to other dogs. Excellent health Please, submit an application today to schedule a meeting and hopefully adopt her or check our event calendar for scheduled events and animal attendance. Angie is also looking for a foster! Don't wait...Submit an adoption application today! DOG ADOPTION APPLICATION If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

      Breed: Border Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $250. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Meet Trudie! Trudie was relinquished from a local San Diego shelter where she was under socialized, but we could see she had a LOT of potential, so we agreed to find her a forever home! She is a little nervous in new situations, but in the right environment she opens up pretty quickly. Trudie is a very smart dog and well behaved, but still needs guidance from humans especially regarding trust issues. She seems to trust women more than she does men, although she does well with men she knows. Realistically, there are certain people who she doesn't trust and takes longer to warm up to. Because of this, the ideal home is a family with no young children (although teens would be fine). Trudie needs an experienced and savvy dog owner who will work with her and understands when she feels intimidated. She seems to be the kind of dog that needs her space when she is in new situations, so it’s best to let her seek attention — she is definitely not an “in your face” kind of dog. Her adopter must be able to read her body language when going out and about because Trudie can feel intimidated if she is approached suddenly. Once Trudie starts to feel confident and warms up to her humans, she loves to seek attention and belly rubs! Trudie enjoy being quiet in her crate and relaxing, but she is also very fond of an active life style, such as talking long walks, hiking, and going to the dog park. She does well in the car and is leash trained. Trudie has been making excellent progress with her foster family. Here is what her foster mom has to say about Trudie: In the past few days she has started running around the yard and playing with my dogs. Trudie is still a little unsure of Charlie inside the house but she no longer lunges at him. She is eating great and has a good recall especially when I have treats! She has had a strong reaction to a few visitors, but after a few visits and a few walks, she has improved significantly. I took her to the Harvest Festival and she did better than I expected. She was confident walking around the event and even let a few men give her treats. I warned them ahead of time not to try and pet her and they didn’t push it. In just 2 weeks time I can already see a difference with her, but I know to take it slow and I’m always aware of what’s going on when we are out and about. All things considered I’d say Trudie is doing very well. She’s really no trouble at all and is fitting in to the household. If you would like to give Trudie the love and forever home she deserves, please fill out an online adoption application right away! She would love nothing better to become part of the family. Don’t wait! Trudie is waiting for you! If you would like to meet one of our animals, PLEASE fill out an adoption application.

Neva had been living in a home with other dogs and cats, and she is excellent around children! She just loves everyone and would make a wonderful addition to any family. In fact, we are certain that she will bring sunshine into your life. This is what Nena’s foster mom has to say about her: “Nena is not your typically Chihuahua! She loves to smile for pictures, LOVES to eat, and has so much fun playing around. The best way to describe her is full of character, playful, and loving. She would be the perfect companion in a working household or someone who is home often. If you go to work, she has no problem roaming the yard and laying in the grass. Or if you are home, she loves to lie on your lap and play around. When she is feeling playful, she runs very quickly in circles, twists, and turns all over the yard. She loves to play tug-o-war with her toys. Nena is house trained and also does well with other dogs. She is very sweet and very loving and warmed up to our home in just a few hours. She likes to snuggle and loves to be pet while lying in your lap. She has been a pleasure to foster but she deserves to find the perfect forever home.” Nena would like nothing better than to find a home of her own where she can have the love she deserves.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Meet Baloo (aka Bubu)! Baloo is a small shepherd mix who has had a tough time in life, but we are certain that he will make a wonderful member of your family! He was rescued in Tijuana after being hit by a car. His face was badly injured in the accident, which caused him to lose sight in both of his eyes (see rescue photos). Yet Baloo doesn’t seem to notice that he is totally blind! He does just fine with his sense of smell and intuitive way of navigating life. He absolutely loves dogs and people! He seems to do ok with cats but is never left unsupervised with them. Here is what his foster family has to say about him: “Baloo has adjusted very well here, with our family and dogs. He enjoys our daily walks, and does very well on a leash. He is the bravest dog we have ever met, especially knowing he is blind! He smells and hears his way around. Squeaky toys are his favorite!! He loves to cuddle, and curl up on your lap. His personality comes out the most when he is excited (food or squeaky toys) and he does a "happy dance." He is quite a delight to have around. He would be a great fit to any family, or single person who is able to give him the time and patience he deserves, as his life is a bit different than most dogs. He does not like to be left behind... he loves to follow you (us) everywhere. We snap our fingers and he follows directly behind. Baloo is loving, hilarious, brave, and just a great all-around pup. We believe he is a shepherd mix and is about 3+ years old. His personality is more around the 2-year-old pup age (except when he wants to nap). It's been a pleasure fostering this sweet pup!” Baloo would like nothing better to find a forever home of his own! He is guaranteed to put a smile on your face once you see how much this handsome guy loves life! Please don’t be afraid to adopt a blind dog or feel uncomfortable about making that decision. We offer a foster-to-adopt program if you would like to get to know Baloo and to see just how great he is.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. Please review our Adoption Process before filling out an application. Looking to adopt an Aussie? If you are applying to adopt Coover we request you THOROUGHLY read this detailed and long bio to KNOw who Cooper is and what kind of adopted we are looking for him. Thank you! And check out his videos Meet Cooper! Cooper was adopted from ARWOB back in 2015 when he was 5 months old. At the time he was adopted, he was a happy, loving, well behaved typical pup. He was full of shenanigans like most puppies, but he got along with all animals and people. A fantastic pup! Sadly Cooper’s owners have relinquished him and he came back to ARWOB in September 2017. He is now a full grown typical Aussie mix with a few trust issues towards strangers. We are seeking an experienced dog owner that has knowledge of Aussie personalities to keep Cooper mentally stimulated and physically active. And out of trouble! The ideal adopter will be a house WITHOUT children and preferably without cats. However, we do think he will be fine with children who are respectful of dogs and supervised. Cooper always says hi to children when out on walks or if they approach to pet him. Of course this applies to the children who say hi in a none threatening manner. like most dogs Cooper will not tolerate a child pulling at his tail or approaching him inappropriately. He has lived in a home with multiple dog savvy cats and he will walk around them in the living room but his Foster notes he will try to take adv of the cats aren't supervised or cornered in a room of the home without direct supervision for this reason a home without cats is best Unless the home has a particular set up like his current Foster. When cooper came back to us in September because he nip a friend who entered the previous owners home and gotten to a chicken in the yard as well as dog aggression we didn't know what we were going to expect. We were pleased when we received cooper and realized this guy is an amazing dog with just a few quirks — he needs a steady, safe, and structured home in order to build his confidence around strangers and new situations. WHO is cooper as of 01/2018 Cooper is a 48lb dog who could loose 2-3 lbs. Cooper seeks to be loved. He melts in your hands when petting him and loving him. His smile is infectious when he meets new people who wants to pet him, he loves attention! He is SMART oh SO very smart! he has basic training like sit stay shake and other easy basic commands. He is house and crate trained. He has never had an accident in the house. He doesn't destroy things but he loves his toys. He loves food but is not a food hound. Loves walks and car rides. He loves to cuddle in bed and total love bug. He is not a big barker the only time he barks is when hints are going around his home or if warning for something. He also is not a yappy badly dog when people enter the home or when he walks ei no leash reactivity BUT there are certain situations and people or scenarios that will get him Riled up and his new adopted will need to be observant to be able to avoid issues for example: when walking him and he encounters construction crews or gardners, also Ups trucks or motorcyclea, scooters. He tends to get excited and bark at those when they go by. Cooper is great with dogs. Has lived with his Foster since he Cameron to arwob in September and many dogs from different breeds ages and size. Cooper is good friends with many and with some it takes a little to come around but he doesn't start or look for fights. He knows when a dog is alpha or strong personality and he too can be growly with that introduction and easily correctable. Puppies or dogs who have no boundary concept and are in his face being "licky face" he will not tolerate and growl or try to snap but if you correct the other dogs and they present themselves well he will terste them and slowly over the period of couple days moves on and doesn't care that they do that and eventually depending on the dogs personality he will play with them. His BFF is Benny the 25 Doxie shep mix and Daphne the 55lb black lab mix. He tends to share toys and likes to play keep away or tug of war wth people or dogs. cooper is NOT a dog park dog. Cooper needs further training and an adoptee who will be willing and absolutely interested in signing up with a dog trainer/behaviorist to make sure a dog trainer assesses him his new family to train BOtH parties on what is good and not. Cooper is an out of this world easy loving playful smart excellent companion but he is NOT for everyone hence someone who knows how to handle a dog on the otherside of the leash. Someone who is looking for an amazing companion in a dog not necessarily Mr popularity. Any adopter tee is welcome to meet him and possibly have a trainer assess him to make sure he is the right march for you and even better Foster to adopt him for a month before you make the lifetime commitment. We love cooper and someone is truly missing out on this amazing dog! Don't be scared give him a chance he is easier than you think but work needs to still be done. We will request adopters show proof of enrollment with a trainer in order to adopt him. Good adopters understand the importance of structure and leadership especially on working dogs and SMART dogs! We are in immediate need of a foster home for Cooper or a potential adopter that would like to take advantage of our foster-to-adopt program.
