More About Akita Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tempe, AZ
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Shar Pei / Mixed (medium coat). Playful and smart Cattle/Shar pei mix Patches is a 3.5 yr old Shar pei mix. She is playful and smart. She knows sit, stay and shake. With practice she is sure to learn more tricks. She needs to be in an adult home that doesn't get many visitors (or all the same people) because she does not like being approached by strangers, and usually takes a few meetings to warm up to people. Once she trusts you she is a giant cuddle bug. Preferable to have a home without other animals as she has never been around cats, and is selective with dogs. She has resource aggression and needs to be fed separately. She is potty trained, and walks well on a leash. With a patient and committed family Patches would be a great companion.

      Elvira

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Tempe, AZ
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Cattle Dog / Mixed. Energetic & loving but jealous girl Elvira is a lively and loving dog looking for a home that will fit her active lifestyle! She loves going on walks and playing with her toys, and ESPECIALLY playing tug of war with a knotted towel! Also, she loves water, so prepare for her to get wet if she walks anywhere near a sprinkler or hose... On the downside, her high energy level makes it challenging to fit into a pack, so it might take some special work and attention from her human family, and she probably wouldn't be a good match for a household with cats or smaller children. Elvira, American Pit Bull Terrier & Cattle Dog Mix has been shared from Shelter Exchange.
