More About Alaskan Malamute Breed
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: Jack Russell Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Buster Jr. is a special little boy! Buster would love a home that can keep him active, exercised and with some daily fun. Buster would also do best in a low-traffic home without children, as an only dog (cats do not seem to bother him), and an owner that is interested in working with Buster on positive training. Buster can be over-stimulated easily and doesn't understand how to reactive to those feelings. So he is working on being comfortable in those situation. He is a dog that takes a long time to trust. But Theresa, one of our wonderful caregivers, has made amazing strides with Buster Jr. To learn more about Buster's behavior and needs please contact UPAWS at 475-6661. We'd love to talk to you about Buster Jr.! WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Dakota can be high energy or mellow. He is very trainable and has a few dogs "skills" already. Crate trained. Self regulated eater. Bathes easily. Behaved for nail clipping. Has light seasonal skin irritation - Benadryl and medicated shampoo help. I have not seen him exposed to cats except at a distance wen he displays high curiosity. He behaves well with children. He does get excited around new dogs and people so you need to be ready for a 75 pound jumping around with excitement for the introduction. Same with new environments, he gets excited and wants to check it all out and once he knows the lay of the land he calm down. Dakota loves walks and anything to do with people or other dogs, scouting for rodents, and just knowing what is going on in the neighborhood. He growls when playing tug of war but he is only playing. He loves tons of attention! The more his "pack" is around, the happier he is. Dakota has lived as only dog but I think he would benefit from living with another dog in a home that is accustom to a stronger high energy dog. He has suffered with separation anxiety and another dog in the home around to keep him company when the people ae not home would be great for him and his anxiety. It takes a long time for him to be OK in a new place completely alone. He will whine and cry loudly when he is left alone in a new place until he is used to it. A home with a decent size yard would be appropriate. Email Charles at bulinski1987@gmail.com or phone him at (231)-445-5596 if you are interested in meeting Dakota. WEBSITE: www.upaws.org

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). "Upper Peninsula Animal Wefare Shelter" (formerly Marquette County Humane Society) Are you looking for a dog with superior focus? How about one who is smart enough to learn any puzzle you put in front of him? Are you a bit of a homebody and rather walk a back 40 than on a busy road? If you answered "yes" to these questions, we've got just the dog for you! Meet Austin, a 2 and 1/2 year old Plott hound mix. He's a great dog who just simply prefers someone who will devote and spend a lot of time with him. He can be a active guy who is so smart, he can even get out of wire crate. He just needs an avenue to keep his mind and body busy. Austin has a lot of love to give; he just can't contain himself, he blurts with joy. He has lived with children, other dogs and got along well. He can not live with cats or small animals however. Austin isn't for everyone but is you you're looking for a running, hiking, or agility partner, he is SO your man. Of course anyone, Austin has a quirk or two...well mostly just one. Anything with wheels drives is way too much for Austin to handle. Austin has been known to bananas when he sees moving vehicles, and he is quite sure he prefers a home where he doesn't have to see many of those. Though he can ride in the car without incident, it certainly isn't his favorite thing - did we mention he is a homebody?! Austin does well walking once he settles in, and he would love endless romps through fields and woods - he just is not a car guy! So this does mean that Austin's new family should have access to an area or place where they can walk him that isn't a frequently travelled road. The country life is best for this fellow. So, overall, if you're looking for a fun dog who will learn endless tricks, puzzles, games, and be a sweet and wonderful pal, look no further than Austin. If you have a place where he can run and play without encountering many moving cars, this sweet, sensitive boy may just be for you! Pet Adoption Sponsorship from a Austin fan.
