I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.

If you have children, we suggest that prior to applying for a dog, you view the website http://www.livingwithkidsanddogs.com. The information is excellent and can help you determine which dog would be right for your family.
Cookie is an adorable purebred tri colored long haired Chihuahua who lost his home due to a divorce. He’s about a year old and weighs 5 pounds. Cookie has such a sweet and gentle manner and he rarely ever barks. He gets along with dogs of all sizes and would probably be fine with a cat. Due to his small size and gentleness he will need a home with teens and adults only—no younger kids, no exceptions. Cookie loves to play with the other Chihuahuas in his foster home and he also loves to run in the fenced in yard with them on nice days. Cookie’s house training is doing well now though he does require supervision and frequent trips outdoors. In his foster home, he, along with the others, are let out every 2-3 hours which helps him with house training. This sweet natured little dog would love a lap to spend time on and perhaps another sweet playful pooch in his new home. A fenced yard is required to maintain his house training. Cookie is with Happy Hound Rescue, a 501c3 all volunteer rescue and is in a foster home. He came to rescue with little vetting. But now he is neutered, has had lab tests, is current on all shots, worming, and he has a HomeAgain microchip. His adoption fee is $375 plus sales tax.
