This precious boy is one of 16 Chihuahuas surrendered to our local shelter. They were all varying degrees of shy and timid...there are 4 boys left and Bastian was lucky to find himself with a wonderful foster mom who just wants to get him ready for a forever home. He will need a special one...lots of patience, love and guidance while he learns to trust and bloom. Best thing to do is post foster's words...
Bastian has a submissive personality when it comes to other dogs. He’s been tolerant of the puppy in our house, and he’s also done well with the bigger adult dogs.
He loves stuffed toys and Nylabones. He’s a gradual eater, never rushed or overly interested in food. 
He’s just now learning to cuddle and be affectionate towards me, and it took several weeks to get to this point. He came to me skittish and fearful (but not nippy). Building trust with him has been key to his progress. It has also helped him to see how the other dogs, both foster and resident, interact with me. Occasionally, he’ll even sit on my lap or rest his head on me. He has even given a kiss or two lately!
Bastian sleeps in a crate at night. I would say he still needs work on house-training, as he’s prone to marking. (Male doggie diapers solve this problem!)
If I try to approach Bastian, he will run and hide. It’s best to let him come to me when I’m sitting on the couch. He’s noticeably uncomfortable when being held. I’ve been letting him out in my fenced in backyard (100% secure) to go potty. He seems to do well with that and is always anxious to come back inside. He has also gone potty for me while on lead.
He is a very special guy and we know his FOREVER FAMILY is out there! Bastian is about 8-10 months old and around 10 pounds. He is neutered and current on all vaccinations, wormers, monthly flea/tick/heartworm control. Please email if you are interested...we can answer any questions and send a ton of pics and videos...he honestly has the best foster!



This dog is NOT offered for adoption by Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) but an Arkansas shelter partner; ARF. Please contact them directly for more information. All dogs are in foster homes in Arkansas. Please visit their website:

  • Come Meet Our Pets...

    We do NOT have a shelter. All our dogs are fostered in individual homes. Meetings are by appointment only after you have completed our online application. THANKS!

    Our Adoption Process...

    Our dogs listed on Adopt a Pet all have initials following the name of the dog. The initials show the State: RI, CT, NJ, NY, etc. where these dogs are being fostered.
    If you see a dog with initials after the name of the dog, these are dogs that are not in our LOCAL area but transport will be arranged for those dogs. For example: W, CF, M, RH, etc.

    Please remember that we are ALL volunteers & will respond to you as quickly as we can in all communications. We are not paid volunteers and try to keep the phones and emails manned but sometimes there may be a lapse in time. We appreciate your patience.


    Step 1 - Complete an online application -

    Step 2 - Please reserve your dog by making a $200 deposit on Paypal -

    E-mail address to use for deposit (which is applied toward total donation) is:

    You can meet any of our local dogs with JUST an online application and NO deposit, but must be approved, etc. 1st in order to take your dog home.

    Step 3 - Let your references know that a volunteer will be contacting them.

    Step 4 - Once your references are contacted, a volunteer will be in touch to arrange your home visit.

    Step 5 - Once you have been approved, pick up information, balance due, and adoption contract will be e-mailed to you.

    Please remember our dogs generally all have a pull fee from a shelter, LOTS of vet costs for initial shots and tests, spay or neuter, and then transport costs to bring the dogs to our area. This is just the beginning of the costs for a rescue. We then depend on our volunteers to buy the dog food, we pay for any additional vetting costs and grooming for the dog. There are many costs and we depend on our adoption donations to HELP pay our costs. We are a non-profit charity 501(c)3 and depend on donations for rescuing our dogs. Most times, the adoption fee does not cover the costs associated with that dogs rescue costs.

    Donations are listed on each dog's description.

    References listed on your application will be checked prior to any meetings with a dog. We do require a HOME VISIT PRIOR to any adoption.

    Some dogs are local, but many are not - they are in various locations so it will not be possible to meet some of them before you adopt.

    We only will transport the dogs if you make a firm commitment and a $200 DEPOSIT as the paid transport is costly & difficult to arrange & we do not have enough foster homes.
