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.

      Posted Breed: Boxer. My name is Layla Claire and I am a sweet 4 year old girl with cropped ears and docked tail. I'm also a super sweet girl! I love car rides, other dogs, am fully house broken, and came from a home where I received lots of love. What can I say, I love attention. After all I am a boxer! My former family continues to grow with four fur siblings, two legged siblings, and more on the way. They knew it became too overwhelming for me and I became too stressed out when in that environment. It also became a little scary for me with so much commotion and little people grabbing at me from behind that my owners thought it would be best for me to be in a home with slightly older children. They loved me enough to want me to find a home where I would be happy and loved so they called LSBR. I'm now in a great foster home and my foster mom reports that I'm SUPER sweet! I love my people.....I love to hug them and give them kisses! I get along very well with other dogs and am generally just a happy girl! I love my chew sticks and get so excited when I'm told 'lets go'......I love to go for walks, car rides, you name it! I also dash for the door when it's opened so, yes, I need some training where that's concerned, I admit! Everyone here talks about how sweet I am and how I'm such a great catch! I couldn't agree more so if you have extra room on your couch and love to give then I'm your gal.

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Introducing Bean to the LSBR program! My name is Bean and I'm aboaut 2 years old. I was recently found as a stray and a nice family took me in and helped me find LSBR! My foster mom says that I'm a sweet girl who is fully crate trained and an overall pretty chill girl. I enjoy being around people, watching tv and going for car rides. My foster mom says that I like to press my forehead against people or lay my head on her shoulder if I'm within reach.....very endearing she says! There are no kids or cats in my foster home so I've yet to be evaluated around them but my foster mom says she thinks I would be okay with them given how chill I am. I recently went on a 'meet and greet' with kids and I'm happy to report I did very well! I was careful and cautious....enjoyed the kiddos but I don't like hugging, tugging or pulling. I think I would be great in a home with kids that are respectfull of me and my space. She also says that I've been a little stand-offish around other dogs.....it doesn't appear that I was socialized with other dogs in my prior life. So, although foster mom is working with me on this, she says that, at the moment, I would do best in a home as the only dog where I can reign as queen bee! I'm such a sweet girl and I love my people! I know there's the perfect home out there for me and I hope I find it soon!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Hello Houston.....Hello USA! My name is Major and my brother, Nino, and I were recently surrendered to the Ft. Bend Animal Shelter but we are transplants from Japan! I'm about 7 years old with th energy of a 3 year old and very, very sweet! I know what you're thinking......what about those cropped ears?! I know cropped ears are so 1980 but hey, I think they make me look extremely regal! My foster mom says that I'm a strong boy and I love to play so, for that reason, my ideal home would be one without small children. I already have very good house manners and I'm house broken as well as crate trained. I 'sit' on command and am happy to go into my crate for a treat! My foster mom says that my leash training could use a little improvement so she's working with me on that....and I'm a smart boy so I'm sure I'll catch on fast! I also live in a home with cats. I wouldn't say I love them, but we seem to get along just fine. So, Major here, signing out.......I hope to meet you soon!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Maximus here......checking in to say 'hello' and introduce myself! I'm a young boy just over a year old so as you can imagine, I enjoy my play time! I'm in a great foster home now and my foster mom reports that I love zumming through the back yard! My foster siblings are seniors so they don't like to play with me but that's ok. I still like them but think that I would do best in a home with dogs more my age that like to play as much as I do! I'm house broken and, although I need a little coaxing to go into my crate, once I'm in there, I like it! There are no kids or cats in my foster home so I've yet to be evaluated around either. My foster mom says she thinks I will be fine with kids though because of my size and playful nature, maybe not very small kids. Looking to maximize your companionship? Maximize with Maximus!

What can I say......apparently I'm a very special boy! My name is Chase and I'm about 3 years old. I found myself without a home and wandered up to a home....lucky for me, it was the home of a LSBR volunteer! I feel like I just hit the jackpot! I get along well with other dogs....even a bossy older female! I absolutely love people and because I'm so gentle, I think I would do great in a home with kids! I'm house broken and already know basic commands like 'sit' and 'shake'. I also appear to be crate trained. So, as you can see, I'm going to make someone a wonderful companion and I'm anxious to find a forever home! If I were you, I would get here pronto to meet me!

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed. Come rain or shine, I'm the kind of Shadow that will always be with you! I'm approximately 3 years old and, with a little TLC, my coat will grow back and I'll be even more handsome than I already am! Unfortunately, my owners were no longer able to care for me and surrendered me to a shelter. The problem with my skin is the result of being stressed but now that I'm glad to part of LSBR and am getting the love and care I need, I'm already feeling much better! If you would like your very own Shadow like me, I'm looking for my forever place to call home! Boxer hugs.....Shadow

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Introducing Kalona........I was recently surrendered to Harris County Animal Shelter because I was in heat! It is apparent that I've had many litters of puppies though.........Well, needless to say, I've had my last litter! I'm a friendly, 5 year old girl who is also dog friendly but I am no fan of those things they call 'kitties'. I'm in a great foster home and my foster mom says that because I am deaf, it would be great to find a home with a fur sibling that can show me the way......and be an awesome playmate! She also says that although I haven't been evaluated around kids, she thinks I'd be fabulous because I'm super easy-going! She also says that I'm a wonderful house guest! I'm already house broken and I am fine in a plastic crate (not a fan of a wire crate) but because I am such a wonderful house guest, I'm not crated in my foster home. To hear my foster mom brag on me so much makes my heart smile! As you can see from my pics, I my prior life was hard but now I'm living the good life.....being the happy, fun-loving girl I was meant to be! I'm making up for lost time....love being around my people so I would love a home with a family that is home more than they're not home! Now I know what you're thinking.....deaf? Well, don't worry.....deaf dogs acclimate to hand signals and I'm eager to learn! Haven't you heard.......deaf dogs ROCK! My foster mom says that I've already learned 'sit', 'down' and I 'come' when signaled. I'm ready to ROCK your world.......I'm sure that by meeting me, you will definitely want to take me home with you!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. 12/7/16 Update Well, surgery is done and I'm on the mend! My foster dad reports that I'm doing physical therapy and learning to use my back leg again! I feel like a new girl! I'm enjoying my foster home and all four of my foster fur siblings but I must admit, I'm ready for my very own family to love and dote on and it would be great if I found them just in time for Christmas! *********************************************************************************** 10/12/16 Update Hi everyone....Gretta Grace checking in! I'm now in a wonderful foster home and my foster dad reports that I'm a great girl who is very well mannered! I walk well on a leash, know basic commands, is house broken and crate trained. I share my foster home with five other large breed dogs. Because I'm a more dominant female, my foster dad made sure that I was slowly introduced to the rest of his pack to ensure a smooth transition. He says I'm just like all other boxers....I've settled in with everyone just fine! He also says that I love people and, although I enjoy lots of attention, I'm also happy playing with my chew toys! There are no kids or cats in my foster home so I have never been evaluated around either. I'm set to have surgery to fix my hip very soon. It will take me a little time to recover but I'll be better than ever and ready to go to my forever home as soon as I heal! ********************************************************************************** Meet Gretta Grace......I'm a pretty fawn girl estimated to be about 3 years old. I was found as a stray so there is not yet a lot known about me. The nice lady that picked me up from the shelter says that I'm very affectionate, I walk well on a leash, was a very good car rider and I know how to 'sit' on command! More information about me will be posted when it becomes available.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Bulldog / Mixed. My name is Jeff which is understandable since I was found wandering with my friend, Mutt. We are roughly 4-5 years old and not much is known about us at the moment. When we were found, we were pretty low. We had little hope of making it and had just about given up. After so many people passed us by, a nice lady stopped for us.....finally! We were overjoyed....we couldn't believe it! We were at the point of trusting anyone that offered to take us off the streets! Since we were found with eachother, it is believed that we are good with other dogs. We have not shown any aggression towards anyone or anything so we seem to be good around people of all ages. We haven't been observed around cats. For more information about me or my buddy Mutt, please contact Sharon at belleboxer@comcast.net or 713.594-4565.
