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.

      Malcom

      rescue
      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

Their final Vetting will be September 14 and will be able to go to their forever home after that. TAKING APPLICATIONS at this time. Adoption Fee: $125

      Breed: Dachshund-Whippet Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Whippet / Mixed (short coat). Ace and his friend or sibling Queenie were found running down a rural road. No water in sight and no close house, so rescuer stopped to put out some water. Both were shy and ran away into field, so as the water was being set out, the dogs jumped into the vehicle. Attempts to locate owner have not been successful, no tags, no collar, no chip. Ace is definitely the shy one and takes a little longer to establish trust. But when he is alone with a person, he is a total lovebug. Loves belly rubs and ear massages. When asked to "sit" he crumbles to the ground like he has been scolded, so backing off the obedience until he is more confident. Microchipped Adoption Fee: $125

      rescue
      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 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! Microchipped Adoption Fee: $125

      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: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Patch was abandoned and rescued by a kind soul not wanting him to go to the pound. He has been staying in a kennel and is house trained. Since he is taken out of his kennel directly out side, we are not sure if he has a signal for going out. He loves car rides and tug o war with his toys. He is large enough to knock down small children but older kids should enjoy his energy and playfulness. Fully vetted, ready to go: Microchipped Adoption Fee: $125

      Nicky

      rescue
      Breed: Anatolian Shepherd-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd / Great Pyrenees / Mixed. Nicky was a street rescue that had been kept on a chain. His neck had some scaring and wounds when he came to our foster. When he was vetted, it was determined that he was Heartworm Positive. He has been treated for this condition and will need to remain on continuous and dedicated monthly Heartworm preventative. Because he is young and strong, the vet believes that he will have a normal lifespan and didn't detect heart damage. Nicky works for food and has been learning obedience commands very quickly. He simply needs someone that will care for him. He is affectionate and wants to please. Loads easily into a vehicle and loves to go for rides. CAUTION: His breed is one that has a double coat which keeps him warm and protected while working livestock, but for an everyday back yard dog, he will shed that undercoat regularly.
