Facts about Faust

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Well, hello there! Thank you very much for reading my bio. My name is Faust and I am a handsome 3-4 year old Chihuahua mix.
I was found as a stray by some kind people who kept me while they searched for my human. When there was no luck, they brought me to MaxFund. Despite the loss of my former home, those aren’t tears in my eyes, because I know that my perfect, new forever home is somewhere out there.

You might be wondering about my name, which comes from a character who makes a deal with the devil. I don’t know why I was given that name because I am nothing like that other Faust guy at all. Tee hee! In fact, I am the complete opposite. I am so sweet, mellow and just love to be held. I give lots of kisses and might even fall asleep in your lap if you scratch my tummy. Also, my fur is very soft, so you will enjoy snuggling with me just as much as I will love snuggling with you.

I get along well with other dogs but I’m not too sure about cats or children. I don’t know why, but I chase my tail. Tee hee! I think it might be when I am excited because I only do it when I am outside playing. I like to go for walks and am really good on a leash.

Don’t I sound like a great dog? Well, I am! So please come visit me, I would love to meet you!

Update: I'm now in a foster home, but still waiting for my FOREVER home. Please contact the MaxFund office to set up a meeting with me!

About MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

The MaxFund is a non-profit organization that was established in May of 1988 to provide medical care for injured pets with no known owners, and to seek out new homes for these animals once they have recovered. The MaxFund is a no-kill dog and cat shelter. MaxFund assists hundreds of people and animals each year by trying to make the correct match between owner and pet. MaxFund adopts our animals to Colorado residents only.

The MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. There is no pre-sorting of animals into "adoptable" and "non-adoptable" categories, discarding the so-called "unadoptable." The MaxFund takes every animal it has the space for. EVERY animal is kept until its owner is found or it is placed in a new adoptive home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees:

Cats: $25
Kittens (under 12 months): $75
Dogs: $125
Puppies (under 6 months) $200
Dogs over 8 years: $75

All applicants will be asked to submit the names and phone numbers of 3 personal references (relatives don't count), the name and phone number of your veterinarian if you have one, the name and phone number of your landlord (if applicable) and information about your current living situation. We also require that all immediate family members meet the animal prior to adoption to ensure compatibility. We would hate to adopt an animal into a family and later find out the dog doesn't like the kids or the husband doesn't like the animal, etc. You can print out an application on our website at

If you are interested in adopting a dog and have filled out an application, MaxFund will ask you to bring any currently owned dogs to the shelter for a “meet-and-greet” to ensure they can stand each other before they become a family. Because we examine adoption applications carefully and contact all references, same-day adoptions are extremely rare and should not be expected!
