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.

      Capone

      Breed: Boxer-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dodson, MT
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Boxer / Mixed (medium coat). Capone is an adult 7 year old mutt. Our best guess is that he's a German Shepherd/Boxer mix. Capone didn't have an easy life prior to coming to RezQ Dogs and his face still bears evidence of a broken jaw resulting in a cutest crooked smile. This people loving, laid back goof just wants his people/kids time now. The rest is a piece of cake! Capone is already house trained and crate trained, great with kids, and gets along well with other dogs with proper introduction. His foster mom has this to say about him: " The thing about Capone.... he is the proverbial "great personality." If I was setting you up on a blind date with him, I wouldn't spend a lot of time on his looks, I would talk up his personality. He will never turn heads. He will never win a cute contest. Yet every person who meets him is completely enamored with him. Like I said, it is the personality. Please consider opening your home and heart for Capone. This special boy deserves a family of his very own now. Will it be yours? Please email us at adoptions.rezqdogs@gmail.com for more information.

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Dharma was born in March of 2016. This goofy and sweet Border Collie/Lab mix has some congenital neurological deficiencies. She will never win an award for the smartest dog but just might for the best cuddler! When she's excited, Dharma has a tendency to spin in a circle but as soon as you call her name, she comes running right to you. Her favorite things in life are getting loves from people and playing with other dogs and toys. If you are looking for a special friend, please email us at adoptions.rezqdogs@gmail.com Dharma would love to hear from you!

      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dodson, MT
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Zeus is a six year old boy. He's a very handsome dog who does require an owner experienced with the breed. He came to us very undersocialized and needing some manners. He's learned quickly and now walks politely on a leash, LOVES to fetch and sits nicely until you throw the ball again. Zeus would prefer a home without children or other male dogs. He gets along well with most females and LOVES puppies. He also ignores cats. Zeus has a lot of potential to be a great companion for someone willing to dedicate themselves to continue his training. If you are interested in adopting Zeus, please Email at adoptions.rezqdogs@gmail.com.

      Breed: Australian Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Dodson, MT
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd (long coat). Jai is a three year old Australian Shepherd. He's not only a stunning looking boy but he's just a joy to be around due to his goofy and playful personality. Unfortunately, Jai didn't have the best opportunities so far but he's quickly making up for lost time. Jai requires a very specific kind of home that will provide him with training, socialization, and patience. Even though Jai requires a bit more than an average dog, he deserves a loving family of his own. If you think you can provide him that, please contact us at adoptions.rezqdogs@gmail.com

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dodson, MT
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Shar Pei / Mixed (medium coat). Mercy has been with us for awhile now. Life has not been easy for Mercy up til now, and so it has made her a bit cautious (but not aggressive) when meeting new people. The minute she learns you mean her no harm, you have a friend for life. Mercy was not socialized real well in her puppyhood, so is making up for lost time. She can get along with other dogs, but seems to prefer large dogs. Any introductions will have to be slow and supervised. Once Mercy settles in, she's a happy girl and very exuberant. She will need some work with basic obedience, but wants to please. We are hoping Mercy will find a family that will welcome her with open arms and teach her what it means to be a valued family member. If you are interested in adopting Mercy, please contact us at adoptions.rezqdogs@gmail.com We've added a picture of Mercy (left) with her best friend Aya (right). It is a great story - you can read about it on our FB page (scroll down until you find it). Mercy initiated the friendship with Aya, and they are now best buddies, and play and run around together every day! It is a beautiful thing, and they both have a blast!
