Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Lovely, polite, quiet, SUPER HAPPY, snuggly sweet girl They really, truly don't come more perfect than Shanti!!! She was found dumped out in the country almost completely bald from mange. She has been treated naturally and has healed beautifully. She is incredibly gorgeous..inside and out. Shanti is about two years old. Bless her heart. She has been with us for 325 days as of 5.11.2016. She's crate trained and perfect on a leash!! You can watch her Pet of the Week spot here http://www.fox7austin.com/good-day/138168920-story She's also very special because she was part of a behind the scene facebook special on Fox News. You can watch that here on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/FOX7austin/videos/1161222443919232/ She's VERY calm and loving. She's also perfect with other dogs. Shanti is young enough to play like a puppy but old enough to know when to just relax and entertain herself quietly. She's nothing but love and gratitude. Shanti is also one of the HAPPIEST DOGS we have EVER known!!! She is happy even when she has to go back in her room..she just runs back in with the biggest smile and waggliest tail!!!! ♥

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.

      Age: Young
      Location: Cedar Creek, TX
      Posted Breed: Border Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). scruffy, full of personality, special boy Trevor was in a kill shelter when he was rescued by I Once Was Lost. He's a super snuggly sweet boy with a big personality in that little body. He seems to be great with other dogs. He's a perfect size to be a buddy out on the town or just a snuggle partner. He's great on a leash and LOVES his tennis ball. He entertains himself with his ball in a way that will make you smile every day!!! Trevor would probably do best in a home without much commotion. He super duper smart and would do GREAT with a job. He needs a home who understands the border terrier personality. He's a very good boy with border terrier energy. We will very happily pay for a session with our favorite trainer to show his family how awesome he is and what will make him happy forever and ever. Please enjoy Trevor's Pet of the Week Spot here: http://www.fox7austin.com/good-day/200056329-story Trevor is crate trained, potty trained, & leash trained. He's a fun sweet boy who will do a great job of creating loving, fun memories for his family ♥

      Location: Cedar Creek, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). super sweet, shy, loving Chihuahua mix This precious little boy was dumped at a kill shelter. He was then placed in a pen with big dogs who attacked him and severely broke his leg. Without medical care on his leg, he was sent home with a foster and pain meds. After THREE MONTHS he was returned to the shelter and placed on the kill list. That's when we found out about him and pulled him to safety. Buddy has had surgery on his leg. He doesn't like to use that leg. However, nothing has broken his beautiful spirit and sweet personality. Buddy needs a home that understands his little leg doesn't work like a normal leg. We believe after time, he will learn to use his leg again. Buddy is young (around 1 year old), he is crate trained and he LOVES LOVES LOVES dogs. Because of his sugar sweet nature we feel he will also be great with cats. Buddy is otherwise very healthy and ready for some true love.

      Breed: Bichon Frise-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Cedar Creek, TX
      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise / Mixed (medium coat). 3 year old cutie in need of a special home Charlie is our special needs baby. Charlie was living with a family for 3 years when they decided to have a baby and 'get rid of Charlie' What a sad situation for this little boy, who has only known his family his entire life. We are happy we have him because it turns out he has bone spurs in his back so he was in a bunch of pain. He is regularly seeing a chiropractor and is making good progress. Because of this pain, Charlie can sometimes be a little naughty toward strangers or towards commotion. If his needs are understood, Charlie will be a fantastic little buddy. Charlie needs a home that will be devoted to his special needs and will understand who he is. If this is all in place, Charlie is a little sweet cutie pie who is a pleasure to be around. Charlie LOVES other doggies and really really LOVES car rides!!!! Charlie's trainer says he's "very smart" Charlie's foster mom says Charlie says "I LOVE car rides they bring me such joy. I want the whole world to see. I am learning that this world has so much love to offer and that I don't have to be so unsure about everyone." & "I'm learning so much thanks to all my angels for making sure I am given another chance." If you might be the special home Charlie needs, please message us to schedule a time to meet this little boy. ♥♥

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Small, shy, super sugar sweet boy Sweet, shy Bookie was dumped in a kill shelter. He was so scared. We just couldn't resist. We put out a plea for someone to pull and transport him to us. He was then on his way!! He's a happy, snuggly boy who is perfect with other dogs. He's so gentle we feel he will probably be great with cats. Because he is scared, he would be best with older kiddos, just so his home is calm & quiet. Bookie got his first bath the second day he was with us. He was such a GOOD boy for his bath. The second picture here is bathday!! The third picture his Bookie scared in the shelter :o( He's fantastic on a leash and loves to run zoomies and play!! Bookie is young around 1 year old and small around 15 pounds. He will make an excellent best friend ♥

      Location: Cedar Creek, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Male cutie pit pittie mix looking for love We have taken care of Trip at our pet resort several times. We know this is an extremely difficult decision for Trip's Mom and Dad but Trip simply isn't happy in his home. Trip will make a fabulous bestie. Please consider adopting this silly smiley boy. Trip is an adorable three year old pittie mix. He is obedient and wants to please, and loves receiving praise from his humans. He has a lot of energy and would need a home where he could be exercised. He has lived with another dog, and is currently boarding in San Antonio with about 20 other dogs while receiving additional training. He is a bit insecure, and would need a strong leader, preferably someone with bully-breed experience. He loves toys, treats, bully sticks, bones, and all things yummy! He would make a great addition for that special person/family, and will be your best friend for life. Watch his video to see how beautifully is now plays with other doggies.
