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: Border Collie / Springer Spaniel / Mixed (short coat). Houston, TX area: Joshua is waiting for a home of his own. This sweet boy was taken in by an FPA Volunteer after a plea went out to help get him off the streets of Houston, where he was fending for himself. Joshua was born around 6-2015 and currently weighs 49 lbs. He has a scar going down his back, just a sign of the abuse he has endured. He is believed to be a Border Collie mix and is fully vetted, micro-chipped, crate and house trained. He is currently in a foster home with 3 other dogs and gets along well with everyone but no cats for this boy. Aside from playing with his foster siblings, he loves to roll around in the grass and soak up some sun while outdoors. He is quick and eager to learn and would make someone a great jogging partner or do well in agility activities. He walks well on a leash except when he sees another dog where he gets overly excited but is working on being more patient in greeting other dogs he meets while out on walks. At the same time, he is very laid back and enjoys being near his people the most (more than playing with other dogs) and is happy to cuddle on the couch/bed and watch TV or sleep.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). COURTSEY POST: AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION HOUSTON, TX: "Cressida" came to us about a year ago with a horrible skin condition and a fractured rear leg. She is estimated to be about 2-3 years of age and is very healthy. She is extremely energetic and dog-selective. She pefers males of her size. Cats are tabooed. She would do best in a home with someone who is familiar with her breed and can deal with her energy level. She hates to be alone. Very social and her favourite hobby is eating and snuggling, and when I say snuggling, I mean ambushing and refusing to allow anyone to arise from a supine or sitting position. She is fully vetted and ready for a home of her own. If interested in meeting sweet Cressida please email Anne: thepawza@yahoo.com Cressida is in the Richmond area.
