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: Chihuahua (short coat). Hola, my name is Chica. I was part of a 38 dog seizure in Bandera County. I was being used as a puppy mill momma. I am very pretty, so I was highly valued, but never handled. I have come a long way in the past year. When I first came in I would bite. Now I am a good girl. I don't make friends until I trust you. I sleep in side with my foster mom, but I don't like being picked up. I will follow you everywhere if you let me. My best friend is Chevy. We do everything together.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). I'm Chevy and I love to run around. I am quite the boy around town. My life has certainly changed in the last year. I was one of 38 Chihuahuas confiscated in spring of 2015. I was not very nice at the time. Matter of fact, I hated everyone. I didn't know people could be nice. The girls spent a lot of time working with me. I still like to do my own thing, but I am starting to trust people and their toys. They even have these tasty things they call treats. I sleep inside with my foster mom every night. But I don't like to be carried. I want a home where I can be independent, but still have a nice person to play with when I want to. My running mate and best friend is Chica.

      Posted Breed: Bearded Collie / Wirehaired Fox Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). My name is Rossco and I was rescued from the Bandera County Pound, where I was well cared for by the inmates. They played with me and taught me to be a good boy. When they got full, they called the girls and asked them to save me and here I am. They kept telling me I would get a new family, but it's been two years and no one has taken me. I would like a family with a bunch of little boys and girls to play with. I love kids and I would be an excellent babysitter. Can I live with you?

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Cooper doesn't look it, but he is 12 years old. He came to us when he was 10 years old. I felt sorry for him and his owner. The guy that owned him had him since he was a puppy. He had recently gotten married and Cooper was unable to transition into a family with two small children. He was totally stressed out and snapping. Now I know what my answer would have been, but the guy was committed to making his marriage work, so Cooper had to go. He had a real rough transition at first. He hated being at the facility. I took him my house, and he still wasn't happy. For the first six months he barked constantly. One day he followed me to the kennel and met the puppies. From then on he found his place in the world. He rules the quarantine room. He set up shop in a bottom kennel and he supervises al the workers and volunteers. He is happy as a lark. He loves the new puppies. He wants to babysit. When I was taking pictures, he kept getting on the table to make sure the babies were ok. I'm not sure that Cooper would be a good candidate at this point for a new home, unless the person had a lot of patience and love to give him. He would really appreciate people sponsoring him. He still gets all the special treatment our adoptable dogs get. Every month he gets heartworm preventative, he gets a Bravecto pill every 90 days and he gets treats and toys. We are committed to letting him have a happy life, but as he ages his care will be more costly.
