Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). We are courtesy posting Lucy for another rescue in the hopes she will find a home soon. Lucy is always looked over. There is nothing flashy about her but this girl will make someone an awesome companion. She certainly loves to please you. Lucy is maybe 3 years old and is probably around 40 lbs. She is an excellent size. Lucy is probably lab and pittie and she is sweet. She was rescued from the Lorain County Dog Kennel. If interested in Lucy, please contact Vera @ 440-775-4101 or Peggy @ 440-984-7014.

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: Alaskan Malamute-Anatolian Shepherd Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd / Alaskan Malamute / Mixed (medium coat). Mingo came into our rescue from another shelter that would have euthanized him due to medical - possible allergies and badly infected ears. He does have some skin issues that are currently being treated. We believe Mingo to be an Anatolian Shepherd mix. He is 6-7 years old and weighs 78 lbs. Mingo is currently in a home with other dogs and cats and doing ok. He does chase the cats, but, it's for the fun of it. He probably would not do well with small dogs. He is housetrained and listens well. He loves to go for rides in the car and walks. he is absolutely great in the car and has learned to walk nicely on the leash. Mingo does know some basic commands. His best fit would be a home with no small children or small dogs. He is a very LARGE boy and would be a good pal to another large breed dog. Very strong boy, will take someone with good dog handling skills. Mingo would love to have a home with a fenced in yard so he can run at his leisure. If interested in Mingo please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Jen @ 440-453-4990.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Midnight just came to use (8/4/17) from Hocking County Dog Shelter in southern OH through Fido's Companion who sponsored his vetting. They estimate his age to be around 7-8 years old and he currently weighs 42 pounds but could gave about 5 pounds. We think his mix is probably lab/shepherd. Midnight is good with other dogs and we believe he will be fine with cats. He does very well in the car and appears to be housebroken. He is a very friendly dog but is a bit timid/shy at first meeting. He loves to run in the yard and chase a ball although he hasn't got the "bring it back" part down yet. Midnight also does well on the leash. He is neutered, all vaccines are up to date and he has been heartworm tested negative. I am in urgent need of a foster for Midnight. If interested in Midnight, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Smooth Collie / Mixed (short coat). Siren has come into our rescue from Cleveland Animal Control. She does not do or show well in a cage and needed to get into a foster home based rescue. She was very scared at the vet but once out of there a totally different dog. She is in foster with two other dogs and does good with them but can play at little rough. Siren does appear to be housebroken and does well in the car. We think Siren would do best as an only pet. She could live with other dogs but can be kind of bossy with them. We also think that a cat free home would be best for her. She probably would do well with older respectful children. She is a playful, fun loving girl. She is very affectionate girl and listens very well. Siren appears to be a mix of hound and maybe some smooth coated collie. Siren is approx. 3 years old and currently weighs 38 lbs. She could gain a few lbs. If interested in Siren, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy at 440-452-1619.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Akita / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). COURTESY POST - YOU MUST USE CONTACT INFO BELOW Ivy is a 75 lb. Akita/Shepherd mix who was picked up as a stray. MARS rescued her just hours before she was scheduled to be put down by animal control. What a shame that would have been, because Ivy is a beautiful dog who loves everyone she meets. She already knows basic commands,learns new commands easily, walks well on a leash and is a confident girl. She would probably make a good agility dog. Pictures alone can't capture her lively and loving nature. She is a must-see-to-believe kind of girl. NO CATS PLEASE.... For more information on Ivy, please contact Deanna O’Brien at marsakita@sbcglobal.net or 773-594-9302. MARS has akitas available for fostering and adoption at several midwest locations. Visit our website, akitas.org, for more details on this and all our other akitas.

      rescue
      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed (medium coat). UPDATE - JUNE 2017 Thor is still not quite ready for adoption but has been learning a lot. He has learned how to walk up and down stairs, how to eat our of a bowl, how to go through doorways, how to get in and out of a car, how to potty outside and the best of all, yesterday he actually walked on a leash all by himself without coaxing. His foster mom is working very hard to help him learn how to interact with other dogs and she just mastered the walking on the leash. Thor weights approx. 55 lbs. We are not sure how he would interact with cats so we recommend that he go into a home without cats. Thor is not yet ready for adoption but we wanted people to be able to see him and if interested and willing to wait until he is ready to find a home of his own. Thor will also need someone willing to work with him once they have him. He has absolutely no aggression but is close to being a feral dog. He is pretty much housetrained at this point. Thor lived his 3 1/2 years in a garage with many other dogs amongst their own urine and feces. They never left the garage or had human contact other than someone walking in and throwing food on the floor. He has some battle scars on his nose from the ugly conditions they were forced to endure. Thor is also blind in his right eye but the left eye is fine. He must have a home with a secure fenced in yard. If interested in Thor, please e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com or call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). COURTESY POST: Contact ditrhdrescue@gmail.com Princess has been in the care of another rescue for almost 9 months now. She had been overbred, abandoned and then overlooked at the local kennel. She then found herself on the urgent list when they took her in. She literally had no clue what appropriate social behavior was. She just wanted to love everyone and every dog she saw. But,her approach was way too enthusiastic. Well, 9 months of patience and love,evaluations from trainers and consistent positive training is making her an excellent companion. Princess is 4-5 yrs old and loves all people. Her Tail is always wagging ( that's her trademark) and she shows everyone that the myth about pitbulls is just that,a myth. Princess is fully vetted and good with other dogs, older respectful kids, but, NO CATS Please. Contact ditrhdrescue@gmail.com
