I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, 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.
Chico is a darling 9 pound Chihuahua mix who lost his home through no fault of his own. He’s about 2 years old and is happiest living with adults. It is likely he was mistreated by kids in his original home and he doesn’t care for kids. His foster dad says he loves to go on walks and when at the dog park for small dogs he really likes to run around. Chico will be happiest with an adult who is home a good deal of the time and is able to take him on daily walks. He gets along well with other dogs and with cats. Chico is house trained and once he knows you are safe, he loves sitting in your lap and getting petted. Chico sleeps nicely in his kennel but might like to sleep in bed with his new adopter. Chico’s adoption fee is $250.00. He is with Happy Hound Rescue and his personal page is at
