Posted Breed: Shar Pei / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Please contact Family Dog Shelter for more information about this pet. Ivory knows that a modern day best friend has to be the life of the party, a workout buddy, and a champion netflix binge watcher. Are you in the market for a perfect BFF? She's looking for a permanent home who specializes in laughing at her silly antics and delivering top notch ear scratches. She does great at home alone during the workday, is fully house trained, great with other dogs and is top of the class in basic obedience and learning new tricks. She's a deaf dog, but all that means for you is that she knows lots of hand signals that will make you look like an expert dog trainer with little to no effort, doesn't understand why other dogs hate the vacuum, and sleeps like a log. But let's get down to the really important stuff; she's soft....like, insanely soft. This is world class cuddle material y'all. It's like petting a baby otter, but less...wet. If you are ready to meet Ivory and show her the amazing life she's never had please fill out an adoption application on our website www.ilovefamilydog.org To learn about the joys of life with a deaf/blind/disabled dog, please visit www.deafdogsrock.com and https://www.petfinder.com/pet-adoption/dog-adoption/myths-and-facts-about-blind-dogs/.

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: Chihuahua / Rat Terrier / Mixed. Please contact Family Dog Shelter for more information about this pet. Meet Pasta! This cute little girl was slated for euthanasia at a high kill shelter. Once we heard about how sweet and affectionate she was, we knew we had to step up and save her. Pasta has had a very rough start in life. She was found as a stray with severe dental issues and had to have intensive surgery to fix her teeth and an old hernia. She is all patched up and healthy now, and is ready to find a loving forever home. Pasta has one of the biggest small-dog personalities we have ever come across. She is very loyal and loving once she trusts you, and has a very spunky side that makes her very special. She is very lovable, and has become a favorite of many here in our shelter. Pasta hasn't figured out that dogs are her friends, and would do best as the only dog in the home. If you would like to meet Pasta please visit our main page and fill out an adoption application!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Meet Rex! This handsome guy was transferred to our rescue from the city shelter in San Francisco where he was extremely shut down and facing euthanasia. Once he was outside of the shelter Rex's personality changed...he opened up to us and we saw what a sweet and loving soul he really is. Rex was found as a stray in San Francisco so we don't know too much about his history. He is about 2 years old, neutered, up to date on his shots, and healthy as can be. He weighs about 60 pounds and is full grown. Rex does well with other dogs, kids (10+), and people of all ages. He is definitely a shy dog and needs an experienced adopter who can help show him the world isn't as scary as he thinks! Rex is currently living in foster care and doing great! He is house-broken and knows basic commands. He has a wonderful temperament and will make for a great companion. To meet this beautiful blue-nose please fill out an adoption application on our website!
