Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sherry ( for more information about this pet. Adoption Donation $ 99 Located: in Connecticut Age: 2 year old Weight: 10 lbs Brandon had an incident where he did bite so we are having him evaluated by a trainer and he will obviously need a very experienced person that is willing to work with his issues with a qualified trainer. Brandon is a handsome, active puppy who loves other dogs and is ready to roll over for a belly rub at a moment's notice. He can play for hours with his foster brothers and sisters and is fine with cats, too. Brandon was rescued in the nick of time from a shelter in Georgia. He is skittish in the beginning until he feels safe. It doesn't take long--Brandon vigorously licked his foster mom's face within an hour of arriving. Due to his size and wariness of new people, we are looking for an adults only home. Please email for more info: Please check out our website for how to Adopt, Adoptions events, Fostering and more!

More About Jack Chi Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
