Story
Lanky is an eight-year-old pure breed Chihuahua that I received 4 months ago due to the previous owner passing away. She is a very sweet dog, but was not able to get along with my two dogs. That is the reason why I need to find a forever home for her. She's good with kids and seems to be in good health. Also she will need to be taken out regularly on a leash or she will have accidents in home. I I know someone is out there looking for Lanky and giving her a loving forever home: she needs lots of attention and loves to be loved on. I pray she will find her home with you. She deserves to have a happy home with loving family. I'm sad that I cannot give her that since she does not get along with my other two dogs, but I know in my heart that someone make her a part of your family. I appreciate you taking the time to review her profile and feel free to reach out anytime. Thank you and God Bless!

M **PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO! Any additional questions, not answered in the bio may be asked via email at: pawprintsnky@gmail.com. This is to ensure a prompt response, as inquiries anywhere else may be missed. ****   Bamm-Bamm Available:  Yes Gender: Male Age: Approx. 9 years Weight: 7 lbs Breed: Chihuahua mix Neutered: Yes Vaccinated: Yes Microchipped: Yes Adoption Fee: $250.00 (plus tax) Foster Location: N Ky.   Applicants must live within 100 miles of Florence, KY, no exceptions.   Home Recommendation: Single Family. Fenced yard.  He talks back like a teenager oozing attitude and tends to like to be vocal (he *is* a Chihuahua), so a home that has walls that are shared with a neighbor won't work.  He will scream and act like you're killing him if you try to leash him, so a fenced in yard is a must. Oh, and he doesn't like to be picked up either.   He loves to be near his people and be as close as he can.      Cats: Well, he lives with cats and hasn't injured any, but he can sometimes be a jerk to them.  He'll randomly "guard" water dishes and other items, and he'll chase the cats away, but no teeth are involved.   Kids: Due to his size, he's not recommended for a home with younger children or where children visit often.   Crate Trained: He is crate trained but his foster family usually just leaves him loose.   Potty Trained: He really needs to have puppy pads out for him to use because he won't try to hold it until the next trip outside.   Dogs: He's a bit bossy but is okay with small dogs.  He screams like he's been injured when he sees a large dog, so those are a no for him.   Leash Manners: Nope, not happening.  Unless you want to lose the tips of your fingers and listen to a dog screaming, it's a no. Bamm-Bamm thinks he's a Coon Hound whose job is to "tree" squirrels and is happy to do so for hours when the weather is nice.  He's a busy little guy who is always on the move and not one to spend time sitting on anyone's lap.     Adoption Process: Step 1:    Complete a "no obligation" application located on our website at pawprintsnky.com under the applications tab. Step 2:    PawPrints will review the application, verifying Vet and personal references as well as landlord requirements/restrictions (if applicable) Step 3:    IF your application is approved, we will call you to schedule a meet and greet for you to meet the pet. &#226&#128&#139Step 4:   If the meet and greet goes well, we will schedule the home visit.

Story
**Please read the profile in its entirety. The adoption process and their basic needs are addressed in the profile. We are an all volunteer organization and are busy caring for our foster animals so we cannot respond to emails that ask questions already addressed ** Adoption Process: Step 1:    Complete a "no obligation" application located on our website at pawprintsnky.com under Adopt.  . Step 2:    PawPrints will review the application, verifying Vet and personal references as well as landlord requirements/restrictions (if applicable) Step 3:    IF your application is approved, we will call you to schedule a meet and greet for you to meet the pet. &#226&#128&#139Step 4:   If the meet and greet goes well, we will schedule the home visit. We’ve tried the more subtle approach and it’s not working, so blunt and brutal it is.   Paco needs a unicorn adopter.  He has some fear based issues so he’s horrible with new people.  His adopter will need to let Paco adjust at his own pace and ignore him for days, maybe longer, when he arrives in your home.  If you ignore our advice, he won’t hesitate to remind you that you’re moving too quickly and need to slow down, so no worries about wondering if you’re going at his speed or not.    He loves to sit on your lap and wants to be close to you all the time.  If you need a lap warmer, he’s your man.  That doesn’t in any way mean he likes to be picked up (again, he’ll remind you of his disdain if you try).   We don’t even try to bathe him because we would like to keep all of our fingers.     Don’t adopt him with the idea that he’ll someday be warm and fuzzy with visitors, it’s a nice thought but he’s probably never going to be that dog.     The good...once he trusts you he loves you and he needs your life to revolve around him.  He forms a strong attachment to one person and wants to be the love of your life   He becomes so attached that he is recommended for a single person home   More good...he likes big dogs.  He tolerates small dogs (although he can be a bit bossy) but appreciates the friendship of a bigger dog (especially if they let him run underneath them when he’s frightened).  He’s okay with dog-savvy cats but he’ll be bossy and chase (no biting) cats who won’t stand their ground. A dog experienced person who has as much of a dislike for other humans as Paco does would be a perfect match for him.  Because he doesn’t like people, walks aren’t his thing.  He does love running in a fenced in yard though, and he’ll alert you to every falling leaf, neighbors 5 houses down who has the audacity to be carrying their groceries inside and when the wind changes direction   You’ll never miss any of the neighborhood happenings with Paco around    Paco is a 6 year old Chihuahua/Dachshund who has spent entirely too much time in his foster home.   He adores his foster mom but it’s time for him to plant some permanent roots    He’s neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines. You can find an adoption application at www.pawprintsnky.com. Once the application is submitted, please expect someone to email you with questions and/or provide more information about the dog is we are unsure that the dog may be a good fit.   Most importantly, please be honest!  We have many people tell us what they think we want to read, not what's truthful.  If there are discrepancies, your application will be denied.  It's important for us to place dogs in a home that's suitable.  You may be a stellar owner but possibly not a good fit for the dog you were first interested in adopting.  We're not trying to offend anyone, we're trying to set everyone up for success.    We're a best fit rescue and will verify your vet and personal references. *Chihuahua/Dachshund *6 years old *11 lbs *Good with cats and dogs (including large dogs) *Not recommended for a home with children or one where children visit   * Best in a single person home but may adjust to a home with two people    * No homes that share walls with neighbors  * Needs a fenced in yard as he does not do well on walks *Adopters must live within 2 hours of Florence, KY *Adoption fee is $300.00    July 19, 2024, 12:13 am

Story
**PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO! Any additional questions, not answered in the bio may be asked via email at: pawprintsnky@gmail.com. This is to ensure a prompt response, as inquiries anywhere else may be missed. **** Chloe Available:  Yes Gender: Female Age: 6 years Weight: 6 lbs Breed: Chihuahua Mix Spayed: Yes Vaccinated: Yes Microchipped: Yes Adoption Fee: $300.00 (plus tax) Location: Adopters must live within 100 miles of Florence, KY She is not a hypoallergenic dog, so her hair does not grow any longer than what's visible in her photos.   Home Recommendation: Single Family. Fenced yard.  Chloe is a skittish dog so needs a home with a fenced in yard.  She will need time to acclimate to her new home and needs a fence to keep her safe.  She does not enjoy taking walks and finds them to be very scary.   She is a trip hazard so a home with someone with mobility issues would not be a good match.   Cats: She's a bit bossy with cats and because of this we recommend a home without them. We will consider a home with cats that are very dog savvy.  Kids: Chloe is timid and would do best in a quieter home. She tends to hide when there are loud noises. Older children should be fine as long as they understand she may take time to adjust.  Potty Trained: Chloe does really well on a scheduled. She may not signal that she needs to go out, but routine helps prevent accidents. She is also used to having access to pee pads and uses them.  Dogs: Chloe can be a bit nervous with larger dogs and does best with dogs similar to her small size. We are REQUIRING another dog to be in the home with her. This will help her nervous personality adjust to her knew home.  Leash Manners: Chloe prefers the comfort of her own yard and therefor has not had much leash training.  Adoption Process: Step 1:     Complete a "no obligation" application located on our website at pawprintsnky.com under the applications tab. Step 2:     PawPrints will review the application, verifying Vet and personal references as well as landlord requirements/restrictions (if applicable) Step 3:     IF your application is approved, we will call you to schedule a meet and greet for you to meet the pet. &#226&#128&#139Step 4:    If the meet and greet goes well, we will schedule the home visit.  July 19, 2024, 12:13 am

Story
Gigi has been in her foster home for 8 months getting ready for adoption. She was feral when she was rescued by SAAP and she was terrified of people. She now wants to sleep as close to her foster mom as she can get and lets her pick her up and carry her around and even trim her nails! She will need time and patience in her forever home to feel safe. Gigi gets along great with other dogs and loves to sniff around outside and chase squirrels and birds. Gigi would do best in a calm home with a fenced yard and no children. Apply to meet this sweet girl at adoptastray.comJuly 24, 2024, 9:48 pm

She does love the yard. But walks on leash. Potties as soon as she hits the grass. Uses potty pads too. Sits up like a squirrel for attention. Flattens out and rolls over for belly rubs when you pick her up. Crate trained but does not need to be crated. Loves a snuggly dog bed. And would sleep with you under covers. Burrows like a mole. Loves her people when she gets to know you. Is fussy when dogs get in her face and when she is in your lap. Corrects easily. Leash up before opening door. She can be be speedy.July 24, 2024, 9:48 pm
