Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Diamond. I love lots of attention and like to follow my foster mom around the house. I love playing outside, but I also enjoy snuggling on the couch. I get along with other dogs but I prefer to be the queen. I do well in my kennel when my people are gone. I know how to sit and lay down and I love going for rides in the car. I have a lot of energy and need a home that will provide me with plenty of opportunities for exercise. I do well in a fenced in yard where I can run without leaving my home. I love kids of all ages but I am still learning not to jump up on people when I get excited. I am a happy girl looking for my forever home where I can be loved. All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called. The adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations.

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.

I know some people words like sit and shake. I am certain you can teach me lots more too. I am sure you will want to take me home with you the minute we meet!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, my name is Shira; named after an ancient goddess of Egypt. I have come all the way from Egypt to find my forever home in Iowa. I love to play with my humans! I have lots of energy and would love a big yard to run in. I can be very goofy when I am in my playful mood. Since I am young I do jump up and be nippy when I am excited. I get along with other dogs, sometimes I just need a slow interaction and time-outs in my kennel if I get too rambunctious. My foster home has cats and sometimes I get the urge to run after one. I also like to check out their food when I can be sneaky. and I am a little scared of cats. I like kids, it might not be good if I am around toddlers because I can get pretty excited and forget I am not supposed to play with them. The most important thing, I need a tall fence otherwise I try to climb and get over the fence.

I have some Catahoula Leopard Dog, some American Staffordshire Terrier, some Lab and some Siberian Husky which explains my ice blue eyes!

I can do it all by myself with no leash! . ;) I'm a really good girl and prefer to have my humans to all to myself. I'm not too fond of cats and other dogs, well they tend to steal the spot light so that upsets me. I love the water and playing in the kiddie pool!

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Harrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Duke! I am a charming, happy, Cattle Dog mix, about 2 yrs old. I love to go for walks or runs (and I am really good at it!). I also love car rides, stuffed animals, and playing in a fenced-in backyard. I am completely house trained, crate trained , and am very intelligent. I know what sit, lay down , and stay mean, but I could use some more training to work on those commands and anything else you want to teach me. I love to run and play; I have a whole lot of energy, but I also love to cuddle, give kisses and be loved by my human companion . Basically, I just like to be doing what my people are. I am very cautious of new people. I really prefer to come check you out first, and I really rather you don’t pet me until I know you will treat me with kindness. I may have to meet you a couple times before I know I can trust you . I can’t tell my friends at Last Hope what happened to me before I came to stay with them, but all they know is that it takes me a while to trust people. Because of this, I should not be in a home with young kids or teens. My dream home would be with an adult family who is familiar with my kind of challenges. I would love 1 other playful dog around my size or bigger to play with (I can play a little rough so they need to be tough like me) and a family who is very patient with me while I adjust to new people in my life. I am a very loyal companion and I just want to please my humans! Once I know I can trust you, I just want to be around you and will be your shadow as you go through your day. I have also had my DNA tested! I am officially an Australian Cattle Dog / Harrier mix! I can’t wait to find my forever home. All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Piper! I'm sure you glanced at my photos & noticed how adorable I am! I just love people and all the attention I can get! I love to follow my foster mom around the house. I love to play but when you settle in on the couch you should probably make room for me too! I'm working on all my commands I know "sit" "come" "go to your bed" and "lay down". I love to go for car rides and walks. When I'm outside I have to be on a tie-out or leash since I like to climb fences. I like to have all the attention and would prefer to be your only pup in the house. My foster mom has a dog I have been getting along with great...but I can be picky about who I'm friends with. I would love to meet you to see if I am the perfect addition for your family!!
