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. Muffit does pick and choose which dogs she likes so a home where she is the only dog would be ideal. Muffit is truly a special gal and has so much love and attention for someone.

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.

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. 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.

      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: Yellow Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Hi my name is Ace, and no you are not seeing double, Bandit is my twin!! I came to Holland all the way from Tennessee! I am currently being treated at Headin' Home for Heart-worm. But once that is all cleared up there will be no long term effects. I just have to stay pretty calm during the treatment, which is about 6 months, which includes the 3 months after that I am to stay relatively calm. The awesome part for you is that the rescue covers the costs of this treatment for me! I am around 32 pounds right now and that's about how big they think I'm going to be, the perfect size dog right?! The staff is starting to work with me on my manners, I do know sit but can be a little jumpy at times! I am also a climber so would have to be watched closely in an enclosed area! I get along well with my brother Bandit and don't seem to mind other dog friends! They have not let me meet those other four legged animals that they call cats, so I would have to be tested for that yet to make sure that I could share my future home with them!
