Posted Breed: Akita / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Cooper is a street rescue and we can't understand why his family has not claimed him. Super dog! House and crate trained. Gets along especially well with female dogs. He is aggressive with cats. Cooper did have some separation anxiety when we first rescued him. He has settled down much more now, but with a new home there will again probably be some adjustment time involved. He is extremely smart..... He can escape most fences and can even open gates or dig under. So adopter will need to be crafty as well to keep this gorgeous guy safe!! Cooper gets excited when he has someone to play with him. He does quick turns and runs around which could knock small children over. He is good with "kids" but it would be best if they were upper elementary or older. Cooper loves to play tug-o-war with toys as well and can be very strong with his pulling, again overpowering younger children. Microchipped Adoption Fee: $125

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.

      River

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This fiesty little girl was rescued near the Washita. Well, I say rescued, but she actually homed herself by coming up to a friendly sole and wiggled her way into their heart. Learning more every day on how to be a "Good Dog", knows sit and come (most of time), plays with her red ball and will fetch (again, most of the time) ... a work in progress! River has her very sharp puppy teeth still intact, so small children would need diligent supervision. She is so smart, might be a challenge for a first time dog owner, but with handling experience, this one has so much potential, she could be that all time GREAT dog people write stories about.

      Breed: English Foxhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Foxhound / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Marley and her sister Calli were dumped in the country and rescued by individuals in the area. They have great personalities and do enjoy interaction with both humans and animals. It doesn't look like they had ever seen a leash, so leash training has begun. They don't seem to understand the concept yet as to why humans need to be tethered to them. In open yard playing, they are in heaven! Being hounds, they do have to check out every scent in the area as well as things that are in the air. If not confined by the fence, they would be down the road in a flash. Hounds are known for stubborness but it really just their deeply embedded instincts for scents. Confined yard will be necessary for their safety. Adoption Fee $125

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Malcom is a sweetheart, very friendly. He does get along with dogs of same size but he is better with females however. Malcom is a people dog. He would much rather spend time hanging out with his people than running around with the other dogs. Born without a paw, but please, don't tell him, he doesn't know it. He is house trained, and completely crate trained. He does enjoy squeek toys and is playful. He can almost talk with this eye expressions. (Malcom was returned by his adoptive family due to now having several small children in the home and they were not able to manage this size dog) Photos are current and from when he was a pup) Microchipped As a puppy we thought he was a Shar Pei but now he is grown, he shows the head and facial characteristics of the Red Nose Pit. No small children, he is not trusting of them, so something may have happened in his former life to cause this. Adoption Fee $125

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Karma was surrendered when her owner was unable to take care for her any longer. She is very good natured and loving. As a puppy, she was a little wild at times but she has learned obedience commands. We believe she would make a good active family dog. She is doing well on leash and could go for runs. Enjoys (ABSOLUTELY LOVES) having ball tossed for her and will retrieve and play for as long as your arm holds out. Karma is the shelter companion dog. We can exercise her with most every other dog and she gets them playing and running. Microchipped Adoption Fee: $125

      rescue
      Breed: Papillon-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Papillon / Mixed. Blaze has lived the past 8 years with his best friend and companion, sadly however she passed away. Blaze has been charished and brought many hours of joy to his companion. He was the only pet in this home as well. We are looking for another home for him with a similar atmosphere. Now he is in a concrete shelter run and very confused. He does not do well with a lot of activity or small children. He can be protective of his "people" and be snappy if he feels threatened. His personality is sweet and meets strangers well. Heartworm tested negative. After a couple of trial visits with couples, it appears that Blaze really is a woman's companion. He just hasn't warmed up to men. With a lot of patients, this could be changed, but we think a home with a woman or women is what he is looking for.

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Redford was abandoned by his owners at a Veterinarian hospital and when contacted said to put him down as they no longer wanted him. Heartbreaking situation. As Redford was a healthy and friendly young dog, he was released to rescue so he could be adopted to someone that would see all his wonderful traits. The volunteers are already in love with this guy. He travels well, gets along with other dogs. He doesn't lead well on a leash YET, but he is learning fast. Micro-chipped Fee $125

She and her siblings were born in the country and have had limited exposure to people. She has a lot of potential. With regular interaction with a new owner and someone that has knowledge of these breeds, Brindy should become an awesome pet. Adoption Fee: $75
