Posted Breed: Akita / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Muffit is a fine gal that would love a fur-ever home of her own. (She does require a fenced in back yard) Muffit has a lot of energy and loves to go for long walks and runs. She loves her toys and cookies as well. Muffit appears to be house broken also.

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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi, my name is Lana and I am just over 3 years old and am a healthy 59 pounds. They tell me I’m what most people call a Pitbull, but please don’t judge me based on my label. My human friends here at Headin’ Home tell me that I’m very sweet, an added bonus-I listen really well!! A little bit more about myself ; I would be best as an only child because I love to have all the attention on me. My favorite toy here at the rescue is my soccer ball. I love to pick it up and carry it around in the play yard. I haven’t been in a house of my own yet, but I keep my living space really clean. I enjoy all the big comfy blankets the staff gives me and I love to hoard as many toys as I can. Lana is a sweet, sweet gal. We guess her to be about 2-3 years old. Lana is so playful and just loves everyone. Lana is picky with which dogs she likes due to lack of socialization so there for she should be the only dog to prevent any issues. Lana is a lap dog at heart and would love a couch to cuddle on. An approved adoption application is required.

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Hello! My name is Athena (yes, I am named after the Greek Goddess-because I’m perfect). I am around 2 years old, and I weigh about 50 pounds. Yes, I am a Rottweiler, but I still have my tail. I like to play in the play yard at the rescue, but if you let me, I’d rater lay in your lap (what do you mean I’m not a lap dog?) My human friends at the rescue tell me I am very sweet, and I walk very well on a leash. I am also very gentle, especially for being so young. Since I am young though, I still have some things to learn, but I listen well and I am very treat motivated. I haven’t had a lot of experience in new environments so please have patience with me while I adapt, but I am very eager to please those I love. Cuddling on blankets and chewing on bones are some of my favorite past times, but I do enjoy a good walk where I can look around at all the things in the neighborhood. I will require a home with an active family willing to help me exercise off some of my energy. I loves to go for walks, to eat cookies and all people. I don't have good manners when meeting other dogs as they say I get to excited. The staff would say its workable with the right owner. Also a home with out cats and no small dogs for me is ideal. i was never socialized with them and now I think they are the enemy. Applicants must have prior Rottweiler (or similar breed) experience.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler (short coat). Hi. My name is Jenny. I am a female Rottweiler, around 6 years old. First thing you need to know about me is I am extremely shy of new humans. Because of this, some humans are quick to judge me and reject me, but I promise it just takes me time to warm up to people. Please be patient with me-I am very sweet once I get to know you. I am very treat motivated and am learning my basic commands. I love walks, especially with my favorite humans at the rescue so I can spend time with them. I love to give them hugs and kisses too. I am a laid back gal, and I am good at keeping my living spaces tidy. Did I mention I love treats? (Seriously-I love them!) The perfect family or human for me is out there, but I would prefer a quiet home with some laid back people, like myself. As I mentioned before, I am shy at first, but with some patience, I fall in love with the humans around me and want nothing more than to be near them and loved on by them. Jenny is a sweet 6 year gal, that loves people once she warms up. She loves her cookies and going for walks. Jenny should be the only dog in her home, she does not seem to fond of the smaller bred dogs. Jenny deserves a home to finally be a dog in after her long journey through the shelter system.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi! My name is Stella, and I am a spayed female pitbull, and I weigh about 55 pounds and am about 4 1/2 years old. My friends at Headin’ Home say I am a bright and energetic friend. I love to play with other dogs, especially when I take trips to the dog park. My sister, Oberon (Obie), is also here at the rescue and we enjoy playing together in the play yard. I get along with humans great! I am a very trustworthy companion and while I enjoy taking long walks, I also appreciate a good lazy day. My friends at Headin’ Home are helping me work on keeping my living space clean and pulling a little less while I am on a leash (I just get a little excited about all the cool things the outdoors has to offer). Meet Stella; she is about 3-4 years old and is really to steal your heart. She is just as nice as they come and does not have a mean bone anywhere in her. She has had a rough start to life being bred over and over, but she is on a good path now and would love nothing more than her own home. Stella has learned to walk on a leash, sit nicely for treats and fetch a ball. "LOVE ALL DOGS, ALL BREEDS, ALL SIZES - LUV-A BULLY" An approved adoption application is required.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi! My name is Oberon (or as my human friends have nicknamed me, Obie), and I am a 4 1/2 year old spayed female pitbull. My sister, Stella, is also here at the rescue. While she is more energetic, I am a little more laid back. But, I still love to play with her. I am very trustworthy around humans large and small; I even got to make my first tulip time appearance at the parade and I got to meet all kinds of new friends-dogs and humans alike. I was awarded with ice cream at this interesting place called Captain Sundae. I even get to visit Grand Valley State University at their Pre-Vet Club meetings with my human friends because I do so well. Some of my interests include: I love to go on adventures with my sister, including the dog park. But, my favorite place I have been on an adventure to has been that ice cream place-or really, any place I can get yummy food. I know my basic commands, and I even take treats from human hands very gently. I walk very well on a leash, but I can be too strong for some people (get some muscles man!), so my friends at the rescue have been helping me walk without pulling so much, and I have no doubt I have improved greatly at this. Meet Oberon, she is a lovely lady that is between 3-4 years old. Her and Stella are sisters. Oberon is very nice, loves to be with people and just cuddle. She walks great on leash and LOVES her toys. She is not a jumper at all. So far we've had no concerns with her and other dogs, but we are constantly testing to make sure.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Greyhound (short coat). It’s nice to meet ya, my name is Travis. I am a 4 year old male greyhound, but I am not a retired racetrack greyhound—I still love to jump and run though! I also love to be lazy and cuddle in my big comfy bed and blankets. I am picky about the dogs I like, because sometimes they can scare me, especially larger male dogs. But, I like to consider myself a ladies man, as I get along with some of the other female dogs here at the rescue. Because I am a greyhound, I require some special care. I would do best at a home where I can run around freely in a fenced in yard because I am a hound and can get distracted easily by squirrels and other animals. I also get very cold in the winter since I have little fur, so I would need an owner who wouldn’t mind putting a coat on me when I go outside in the winter and is attentive to how cold I can get. Travis was brought in as stray, he is not a racing greyhound. He is so sweet and loves people. (NO CATS or small dogs). Travis walks great on a leash, loves to be cuddled and get treats. Travis would be good in an active family or a causal one that just likes to go for walks also. An approved adoption application is required.

I’d like to think I’m a sweet pretty laid back guy. I didn’t really know how to walk on a leash so the volunteers having been working on that with me. My favorite thing to do is go out and run around with my other beagle friends here at the rescue. Gus is such a good boy who certainly does not deserve to have heartworm disease. He is currently being treated for this and it does not slow him down one bit. Gus always has a sloppy kiss for you, his favorites things are toys, treats and lots of HUMAN love. Gus is working very hard on his basic manners, leash walking and house training. His ideal family should have a fenced in yard as he is typical beagle. After his treatments are finished he should have a relatively normal life . An approved adoption application is required.

I have quite a bit of energy so would do best in an active home. I get along well with other dog friends, not so sure about cats though. I like to go for walks and play on the new toys that we have here at the rescue Curtis is a sweet young boy with a lot of your typical happy go lucky affectionate lab qualities. Our best guess is a lab mix. He loves to go for walks and even for bike rides. We'd suggest that Curtis go to a home with kids over 10 years old as he is still working on not jumping and realizing his size. We pulled Curtis from another shelter in Flint, MI.
