More About Chihuahua 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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Chula is a fun-loving, sweet adult dog who thinks age is nothing but a number. She came to the shelter with her sister when their previous owner could no longer keep them due to housing issues. Ever since then, Chula has patiently been waiting for her new person to find her. But that hasn''t dampened her spirits! She greets her volunteer friends with a big smile and wagging tail and enjoys spending time out of her kennel. She loves going for walks and even gets to go on weekly bike runs with one of the volunteers. In the play yard, Chula is a joy to watch chasing her favorite tennis ball and exploring her surroundings (she is very curious and observant). She readily engages with people, especially when treats and scratches behind the ears are involved. She knows `sit` and walks well on the leash. At the shelter she participates in group walks with other leashed dogs, and she is able to ignore them and focus on her handler. Her previous owner reported that Chula was house trained, enjoys car rides and baths, and described her as `very loving, likes to cuddle, and likes to lounge`. So if you are looking for a mellow, yet fun-loving companion, this sweet girl might be just what you are looking for. Come meet Chula today! She is waiting for you in Kennel 25.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Flaca is a spunky, fun-loving girl who is young at heart and is looking for her second chance. She came to the shelter with her sister when their previous owner could no longer keep them due to housing issues. Flaca is hoping to find a new home that can accommodate her love for playing with tennis balls, lounging around on the couch (or doggie bed, whichever you prefer) and keeping her new person company. Her previous owner reported that she was house trained and has lived with another dog, but she may take a little while getting used to new dogs. She enjoys walks and exploring her surroundings, and her favorite game is playing fetch with tennis balls. She likes treats and knows some basic commands such as `sit` and `stay`. She is a loving girl who can''t wait to find her new home. Come meet her! She is waiting for you in Kennel 20.

PackWalk participant * Lower energy dog with good house manners * Crate and house trained * Knows `sit`, `down` and `shake` commands * Lived with cats while in foster care Ready for 80 pounds of pure love? If so, then you must meet me: I''m Duke and I am your dream dog! My foster family says I''m very sweet and easygoing. I have a great time meeting new people and other dogs on my daily walks, and I am very social and affectionate. I know my basic commands and I''m even crate-trained. Right now I''m living with some cats and I have a canine buddy, but if you have pets and want to see how we might get along, my fosters can arrange a meeting. But first you might want to get a new dog bed, some bowls and other supplies because once you meet me you won''t let me go!
