Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Date of Birth~1/26/15. Photos taken on 5/4/16 & 3/6/16. 12/8/15 - He is 75+ pounds. He likes cats and wants to hang around where they are. Buster was rescued from a high kill shelter. He has lots of energy...Buster is a lab mix puppy, and that’s another reason for extra energy! Buster was found by some good Samaritans who kept him for a few days to try and find his family, but eventually had to bring him to the shelter. He has been neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, he tested negative for heartworms and is on heartworm preventative & has been treated with Advantage. Adoption fee of $175.00. He can only go to a home where he will get lots of love and attention. He is still a puppy and loves to chew, so special care must be taken to keep things away from him that he will chew on. He gets excited and wants to jump on people so he really needs a professional trainer to work with him. He would love to have a farm where he could run and play or a large fenced yard. He's a great watchdog. Call RescueCats at 678-817-9647, or e-mail rescuecats@hotmail.com Link for the application: http://www.rescuecats.org/adopt_a_dog.aspx

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.
