Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Hi, it's me -- Hera. Just like the Greek Goddesses', I was named for, I am a beautiful and priceless dog! I'm quite petite, at just under 6 pounds. My foster mom says I am a terrific size for anyone wanting a lap dog! I love to cuddle, hang out with my people, and enjoy the company of other friendly canines, too. I love, love toys and treats -- and of course, to be treated like royalty. If you are interested in being part of my adoring court, consider contacting the dedicated volunteers at Canine Soulmates Rescue for an opportunity to meet me.

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.

      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Wanna cuddle? Meet Laci! She is an extremely lovable, happy girl. If it were up to Laci, she would cuddle with you all day long. A guard dog? Not so much. If someone comes to the house, she might bark -- until the person approaches her, at which point she will roll over for a belly rub. So cute! Laci has lived with small children and is great with them. She has spent her lifetime being very loved, but a toddler in her home developed severe allergies, which is why she ended up a Soulmates dog. Laci is a healthy 8-year-old, maybe a doxie-chihuahua mix, about 17 pounds. And she she has the cutest purple tongue! Sometimes people hesitate at adopting an older dog, but they can be such a joy, affectionate and well-behaved. So if you're in search of a little love, inquire about Laci by submitting a pre-adoption application at www.caninesoulmates.com.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Meet Leanne, a total sweetheart of a girl. If you'd like to sit and pet her, she will be happy. She might cuddle or she might curl up at your feet, but she'll be close by. Leanne loves walks, lying in the sun, and exploring the back yard. She is friendly to dogs and people alike, including kids. In fact, Leanne has lived with small children and been a beloved family member, but a toddler in her home developed severe allergies, which is why she ended up a Soulmates dog. Leanne came into the rescue with her pal Laci, but Leanne is a softie, quite submissive, and we think she might thrive in a new home of her very own. Leanne is about six years old, maybe a doxie-chihuahua mix, about 21 pounds. To inquire about this sweetheart, submit a pre-adoption application at www.caninesoulmates.com.

I will accept applications on families that are ready for fun and laughter – as that is the life that I most look forward to. I want plenty of loving, treats and toys!! Apply to adopt me, Trinket, if you are ready to meet a dazzling dog – you won’t be disappointed.
