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: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Houston, TX
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Hello Houston.......I'm Franklin! I'm just a baby as you can see.....estimated to be just 3 months old. I'm just your typical boxer puppy......full of energy! I love to play with my toys but I'm also really enjoying my play time with my foster fur siblings......but as you can see from my pictures, I also enjoy lounging with my playmates! My foster mom says that I am crate trained and I even sleep in my crate! When I get out of my crate and when I drink my water, my foster mom reminds me to go potty.....she says that I'm just about 100% potty trained. Given my age, I've got a lot to learn but, as you can tell, I'm well on my way and I'm eager! I'm looking for a family that is willing to work with me to continue learning all the things that are going to make me a wonderful addition to the family and with continued guidance, I'm going to make someone an awesome companion!

      Location: Houston, TX
      Posted Breed: Boxer. IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME UNTIL I CAN BE ADOPTED! My name is Lola and like my gray face, I shine! I'm 11 years young with a lot of pep in my step! Can you believe that I was recently surrendered to the SPCA? I really don't know what I did to deserve that but, hey, I'm not looking back....only forward and I know there are wonderful things ahead for me! Yes, I'm a distinguished older girl but haven't you heard.....11 is the new 6 but age is just a number anyway! They say that I'm super sweet, well behaved and very people friendly as well as dog friendly. I will do best in a home with kids that know how to treat me properly. I have not yet been evaluated around cats. I know basic commands like 'sit' and 'shake' and I love car rides! My perfect home would be one that is looking for a low maintenance pup.....someone looking for a wonderful companion that is fun to pal around with but doesn't require a ton of exercise....someone that is looking for cuddles on the couch and a sweet gray face that will always light up when you come home!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME UNTIL I CAN BE ADOPTED! Introducing Kalona........I just arrived to the LSBR program. 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 am deaf so it would great to find a home with a fur sibling that can show me the way......and be an awesome playmate! That's really all that's known about me at this time. More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

      Posted Breed: Boxer. IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME UNTIL I CAN BE ADOPTED! Hola amigos, I'm Teddy! Just like my name implies, I'm a total teddy bear! I know just by looking at my incredibly handsome face you want to meet me, just in case you need some more convincing, let me give you 3 good reasons why I'm the perfect pup for you… 1) I'm super chill and friendly, I have a sweet disposition and I don't get too overwhelmingly excited. 2) I get along well with other dogs. In fact my doggy-jail cellmate was much larger than me and we got along just great! 3) I have the softest brindle coat and I'm healthy and at a good weight. So there you have it, three reasons why you just won't be able to say no to me. In my years on this earth, I've learned there is more to life than being really, really, really, ridiculously good looking…having a family that will love me and never leave my side is the greatest gift any pup could ever have. In return, my gift to you will be unconditional love forever!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. 3/1/17 UPDATE: I recently scored a great foster home and let me tell you, I'm having a blast! I have a fur sibling to play with and boy do we play! I'm just your average boxer....I enjoy getting my belly rubbed, I love all the attention you can give me, I enjoy the company of other pups and I have never met a toy I did not like! I'm housebroken and have adjusted well to life with one eye! Most important, I fought so hard to survive but not only am I surviving, I'm thriving! Now that I've had a taste of the good life, I can't wait to find my forever, loving home! ******************************************************************************************** 2/1/17 UPDATE: WOW....I'm looking good if I have to say so myself! To see where I started.....well, it's scary because I was....let's just say that I was rescued in the nick of time! But enough about that, I want everyone to know how well I'm doing! I'm a fun-loving guy with a hankering for toys....I just love my toys! They say that I'm a gentle guy and although I've not been around other dogs very much, I can't imagine that I'd be anything but magnificant with other dogs. As you can see, I've had a hard life. I don't want you to feel sorry for me but I don't want to sugar coat things either. I've had several surgeries including one to remove my left eye. My right eye works just fine so I'll be okay but I'm still getting used to life with one eye. Until I am comfortable with it, they say that I should be placed in a foster home with kids that are teenage or order. So, it was also recently determined that in my previous life, my back was broken at some point and, although healed, I have some arthritis that will require meds to make me comfortable going forward. I've been in boarding now for a long while and I'm really, really craving a place to lay my head other than this metal crate! I could really benefit from a loving foster home that will help me regain my strength and rebuild muscle tone! I'm like a budding flower.......I just keep getting prettier on the inside and out! Won't you consider being part of this fantastic transformation?! ******************************************************************************************* 12/6/16 Update: What a difference a few weeks makes! Take a look at my current and before pictures. I know to you I may still look like I have a long way to go but, to me, I've come a long way! I'm so happy with my progress! From here, I will only continue to make progress and will soon blossom into the handsome boy I am! I am still looking for my forever home but in the meantime would be thrilled if I could find a loving foster home to help me learn and progress even further! ******************************************************************************************** Well folks, as you can see, I've seen better days! I was rescued from the streets and taken to the shelter as a stray. From the outside, I know I look horrific right now but inside, my spirit remains unbroken! At at the moment, I'm getting the care I desperately need. They haven't even been able to determine my approximate age due to my condition. But don't worry folks, after my much needed TLC, I will be better than ever! More information about me will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

      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: Boxer. Hi, I'm Sabine. I'm a sweet, playful girl estimated to be about 2 years old. A nice lady found me as a stray and fed me, loved me, and helped me find my way into the LSBR program! I recently landed in a great foster home where I'm learning so much. I am leash trained, house broken, crate trained and know basic commands like sit and stay. Some of my favorite things include playping tug of war with my fur sister, Bella, nibbling/gnawing on my bones and having my ears and belly rubbed! My foster dad says that I have settled in well with my fur sisters. Because I can be a little bossy, a proper introduction to my canine friends is key. He also says that I'm a playful nibbler which may be too much for smaller dogs and small children. I am so happy to be in my foster home with playmates, lots of love and attention! While I'm having a great time, I'm really anxious to find my forever home! My foster dad says that my optimal forever home would be one that is equal parts active and couch potato because, although I'm an energetic girl, I simply love my cuddle time with the family!!!

      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.

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Hi folks.........Just like Scarlet in 'Gone with the Wind', I'm a beautiful Southern girl! I am super sweet and I absolutely love attention more than anything! I'm about 6 years young and I simply love life! I am happiest when I'm spending time with my people! I love children! I have to say that I'm a little skiddish of strange adults at first....it takes me a little while to warm up, but when I do, I'm extremely loyal to my family! I love going for car rides and I enjoy my baths and nail trims! Like most younger boxers, I have a lot of energy so I would do very well in an active family! I should tell you that I'm somewhat of a prima donna.......I have what some would call a dominant personality....I like to think I have a very large personality! Anyway, having other dogs or cats in my home is not preferrable. Like most Houstonians, I have allergies but they are easily controlled by a healthy diet (from pork and pea). Well, I'm absolutely adorable! I'm also house broken and crate trained. I'm really a love bug that just wants to be the center of attention........If you are looking for a sweet girl that loves attention and expects a lot of love and loyalty in return, I'm your girl! To inquire about me, please contact Steven at 832-257-9259.

      Posted Breed: Boxer. My name is Diamond and I'm a very sweet 4 year old boxer girl! I know what you must be thinking....just because I'm white, I'm deaf. Well, that is a big misconception about white boxers. Very few white boxers are actually deaf and I'm not. As you can see from my picture, I don't mind going for car rides or lounging with my people during a lazy afternoon! I love to run and play though so I would love a home with other dogs and a big back yard! I also love my people and have even been known to get along well with cats! I have been known to have a strong personality so I need a strong owner and fur siblings who are okay with my personality. You know what they say.....diamonds are a girl's best friend; however, I'm confident that everybody will love this Diamond! Won't you give me a forever home?
