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 low fences and can even open gates. So adopter will need to be crafty as well to keep this gorgeous guy safe!! Adoption Fee $100

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: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Weatherford, OK
      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 is a little wild at times but she is learning obedience commands. We believe she would make a good active family dog. She is doing well on leash and could go for runs. Enjoys having ball tossed to her but hasn't completely learned to bring it back. Getting there. Although she is doing well in foster care with two older smaller dogs, she hasn't done well in meeting dogs of a similar size and sex. She may do best in a home where she is the only dog. She likes to be the center of attention! Adoption Fee: $100
