I am Butter, a Chihuahua mix, born on November 4, 2010 and I weigh 12 lbs. My "brother" Peanut and I came to Halfway to Home because our owner became ill and could no longer care for us. If it is okay with you, I would like to cuddle in your lap and snuggle in your bed. I like older children, but I would also be a good fit for a retired couple looking for a friendly companion to be the center of their universe. I am not nimble enough to get out of the way of young children. Small dogs are okay by me, but I am not sure if I like large dogs or cats.
Byron is a Chihuahua mix, DOB 11-23-07. He was adopted from Halfway to Home in 2013 but his owner recently became ill and is no longer able to care for him so he has returned to the rescue to find his Forever home. This sweet little guy is friendly but timid at first (particularly around men) so he will need a patient adopter who is willing to give him time to adjust to his new environment. He would love to be your bed buddy if you so choose. Byron is also doggy-door and house-trained.
Randall is 7 yrs old and was abandoned at the eastside Petsmart five years ago and has been with HWTH ever since. He loves people (but no other animals) and would make a wonderful companion.
I'm Nicky, a Terrier mix, born on 9-9-09 and I weigh 14 lbs. My owner moved away and didn’t take me with her so we came to HWTH to find the forever home we deserve. I am a low-maintenance boy in a cute package! I am not terribly active so I only need a short walk or two a day to keep my joints healthy. My lower jaw looks kind of funky which slows me down a bit while I am eating, but otherwise it doesn’t affect me at all. My ideal home would be a quiet place without children with owners who like to cuddle.
This is Charlie, a Chihuahua mix, DOB: 8/11/11. Charlie weighs approximately 9 pounds and stands 12 inches at the shoulders. This is a very friendly boy who is high energy. He will need an owner willing to give him the exercise, play time, love and good-quality human companionship he deserves. He will benefit from positive basic obedience training to help with leash training and the bonding process. Charlie is good with other dogs and is crate trained.
Buster is 11 yrs old and is a large boy adopted out in 2009 and turned into the local animal shelter in 2018 to be put down because of his age. We rescued him again and we would like to find him a new forever home to finish out his long life.
I'm Derby, I am a Manchester Terrier, born on 12/12/2012 and I weigh about 15 lbs. I was relinquished to HWTH after my owner passed away. I was very sad and confused when I got here, but I am now looking forward to finding my forever home! I need a quiet adult-only house or ground-floor apartment/condo where I am the only dog. I have arthritis in my legs so my walk is a little funny. I am starting to learn to walk on a leash and it is important that I get regular short walks to keep my joints moving. I am a friendly boy but I can be moody sometimes. I may growl when I need some "me" time but I am not at all aggressive. I am also house-trained! With time, patience, and love, I think I will make a wonderful canine companion.

Hello, I am Romeo...aka "LIttle Pain in the Butt". I am a Chihuahua mix, born on 8/13/2013 and I weigh about 7 lbs. I am high-energy with an impressive vertical leap. I bark when I see people I don't know. I am very particular about who can pick me up, and although I am not large, I am definitely in charge! I am not house-trained, and I don't do well with children. Why should you adopt me, you ask? Well, despite my faults, I think I could be a fun and entertaining addition to the right family. I need a firm, but patient adult-only family who is willing to take the time to work with me and show me where to potty and how to walk on a leash. . I do well with other small dogs as long as they understand that I am the boss. Are you ready to take the Romeo challenge? If you are, please call Sandy at tele#661-824-4495. I'll be waiting!!
My name is Bronco, I am a Chihuahua mix, born on 5/11/2006 and I weigh about 10 lbs. I have been at HWTH since 2011. I appreciate all the love I have received from the people here, but I would also love to find a forever adult-only family to love for the rest of my life. I am a sweet and playful boy who loves being around people, although admittedly I am not fond of being picked up. I am deaf so getting my attention can sometimes be a challenge but I am able to feel vibration so a good foot stomp will usually do the trick. I also have some arthritis in my front legs but it doesn't prevent me from exploring! I get along well with other small dogs too! ADOPTED
