Posted Breed: Dogo Argentino / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Shelby loves everyone and loves to play!! She has some energy and will need a home with some patience since she is deaf. She does fine with other dogs although she can be a little bossy with her food. She's very affectionate and will give you kisses as she runs by playing with the other dogs or kids around! Her foster mom is teaching her sign language and she already knows sit... although she's still working on focus! :) Ask about this wonderful girl today! Please email for more information or to set up a meet and greet with sweet Shelby today! Here's a link to some more pictures of this awesome gal with the beautiful smile! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.467765229913155.103853.155571084465906&type=3

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: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: hosuton, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Sophie was discovered by a caring lady that saw her very skinny, on a chain, with no food or water. After several attempts to get animal control to do something, she went to the owner who surrendered her right away. She didn't even care to say, "goodbye" to her :'( This sweet girl sure has been through a lot. She's currently on slow kill treatment for heartworms and once that's better under control, she will be spayed. She's still a little timid, but extremely sweet. She loves attention, but is still a little fearful of touch. She'll still flinch when you go to pet her, but she really does love being near a loving person. For now, she seems to be a little guarded with her food around other dogs, although not with humans. With all she's been through, it would be understandable if she didn't like anyone, but this sweet girl just has a heart of gold. She wants so badly to trust and love and is willing to be brave enough to let it happen. Ask about making this precious girl a part of your family today. Adoption fee includes heartworm treatment until cleared, vaccines, dewormer, microchip and spay (after HW treatment). You will have rescued a true gem with this little sweetie. Will you give this girl the wonderful life she deserves?? I will update with more pictures as she gains weight and gets more healthy.

      Location: hosuton, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Tara was picked up by the shelter several times because she kept climbing her short chain link fence and wandering around the neighborhood to say hello to everyone. She was rescued from the shelter and is now looking for her forever home. She's got a heart full of love for anyone that will give her the chance and just wants to love an be loved. She has helped in her foster home with cats and kittens as well as helped some anxious or scared dogs come out of their shell. She's an all-around lover and helps whenever she can. Tara is about 6 years old and still playful if there's a pup around that wants to play. Otherwise, she's fine sitting in your lap or snuggling up to you at night in the bed. She is house broken, kennel trained, spayed, microchipped, utd on vaccines and ready for her new forever home! Ask about being the lucky family that gets to add her to your family today!! You will be so glad you did!!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Sugar! Sugar comes with a little bit of spice! But it's all the good ones :) Sugar is one of our long term fosters that has been with us about 4 years. She was rescued as a precious little baby from a high kill shelter. She is pretty playful and energetic and gets along with other dogs, but doesn't quite realize her strength. Because of that she would do best with bigger dogs and children. She really loves the little kiddos, but she doesn't know how strong she is! She is housebroken and crate trained and oh so loveable!! She would love to roll over for you and let you rub her belly!! She is spayed and microchipped and UTD on shots. Ask about her today! Here is a great album for this sweet girl... take a look! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.521235697899441.113497.155571084465906&type=3
