My story

Greetings, I am Romeo (HWTH#15341A). I am a cute Chihuahua mix, born on 8/13/2013 and I weigh about 7 lbs. I am high-energy with an impressive vertical leap (and I'm cute). I bark when I see people I don't know (but in a cute way). I am very particular about who can pick me up, and although I am not large, I am definitely in charge (and cute)! I am not house-trained yet, and I am not a good fit for a family with children (despite my cuteness). Why should you adopt me, you ask? Well, despite my faults, I think I could be a loyal and entertaining addition to an adult family. I need a firm, but patient owner who is willing to take the time to work with me and show me where to pottyand how to walk on a leash. Obedience training will help with the bonding process and help me reach my potential to be a well-behaved boy and a good companion. My size makes me a great fit for an cute apartment, cute condo, or cute mobile home. I do well with other small dogs as long as they understand that I am the boss (and very cute). I live with 2 other male dogs at the rescue (you can see Derby in the background of one of the pictures, who is not as cute as I am). Are you ready to take the Romeo challenge? If you are, please call 661-824-4495. I'll be waiting!!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption procedure includes an application to make sure the dog and the people will be a good match, an adoption fee to cover the cost for shots, spaying or neutering, and a home check. Halfway to Home dogs are adopted out to be part of the family, and many of them are housetrained, if not, we ask that you are willing to undertake that task. Our dogs are intended to be indoor/outdoor family members. Doggie doors are a plus.

Go meet their pets

Come and see us every Saturday & Sunday, rain or shine from 11am to 3pm at the westside Palmdale Petco, 39522 10th St. West, Suite A, just north of Target and just west of the Aldi grocery market, phone #661-267-2447.

We also are at A Better Way Pet Care in Lancaster from 10am-2pm. This location will be SATURDAY only. Located in Lancaster at 202 West Ave. J, phone #661-948-3939.

Because Petco stores and A Better Way Pet Care are currently not doing weekend adoptions because of the coronavirus we are scheduling meetings offsite. Please call Sandy 661-824-4495 (land-line phone) to arrange a meeting with the dog that interests you.

We are in need of volunteers to help out at our pet adoptions at Petco on Saturdays and Sundays or at A Better Way Pet Care on Saturdays. If interested, please visit us during our adoption hours or call Suzanne at 661-824-4393.

More about this rescue

Halfway To Home was formed in 2001 due to the need in the Antelope Valley to rescue the many homeless, helpless pets. We have animals from individuals who have to give up pets, and from animal shelters that have darling individuals who need to be spared euthanasia. There are puppies coming from individuals who did not spay and neuter in a timely manner. Your tax deductible donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 512 Rosamond, CA 93560 or you can visit us on our web site at www.halfwaytohome.net and make a donation through PayPal.
