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 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 I prefer to call myself 'seasoned'! Anyway, haven't you heard.....11 is the new 6 but age is just a number anyway! They say that I'm super sweet, very affectionate, well behaved and very people friendly! My foster mom says that I love to go for walks and romp around the nature trail near her home! I prefer not to share my home with other animals.....I love to have all attention revolve around me! Now kids are a different story.....I will do fine in a home with older, dog-friendly kids! I know basic commands like 'sit' and 'shake', love to play and I love car rides! Oh....and not only am I house broken, I've already mastered using the doggy door in my foster home. My foster mom says that I'm a well mannered, delightful girl! She says my little nub (tail) only stops wagging while I'm asleep! I'm affectionate and inquisitive! I'd say my perfect home is with someone looking for a special companion.....lots of cuddles on the couch and a sweet gray face that will always light up when you come home!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Well, here I am! So glad to be out of there! My name is Ansley and you would think at my age (around 10) I would be snuggled up in a blanket or hanging out with a family that adores me! But here I am looking for my forever home! I am very easy going girl, who isn't stingy with affection and just wants to please everyone. As you can see from my pictures, I am in need of some serious grocieries but even after gaining some much needed weight, I'll still be a petite girl! I won't even take up the whole couch while we are watching tv! I'm looking for a loving forever home...somewhere I can rest my head and spend my golden years. Do you think you have a place in your home and in your heart for me?!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. My name is Rocky.....I was adopted from LSBR in 2014 and have been living such a charmed life! Unfortunately, my family has fallen on hard times. They love me dearly and want the best for me so they've made the difficult decision to surrender me and my sister, Tobin, back to LSBR. I miss my family but I truly understand.....my paws are crossed that I can find another wonderful family that will love me as much as they do! So, I'm about 5 years old now. I get along well with other dogs and I am excellent with children! I am house broken and crate trained! I am also an excellent car rider....which I enjoy doing as long as I can look out the window! I really am an all-around great guy, if I have to say so myself! Although if you ask anyone that knows me, they will back me up!

      Posted Breed: Boxer. Davina here......new to the LSBR program! I am a super sweet, super playful girl about 1 year old with natural ears AND a natural tail! I know pretty cool, right?! I'm shy when I first meet people but I warm up quickly! I was recently surrendered to an animal shelter and I'm not sure why because I'm such an awesome girl. My foster mom can't say enough good things about me.......so where do I start?! She says that I'm house broken and I walk well on a leash. I love to play with my toys (as if you couldn't tell by my adorable pics), go on walks, and hang with my new fur friends! I'm curious about the resident cat but, as my foster mom says, I don't have an aggressive bone in my body....I just want to love and play! So, she's working with me on my cat curiosity but it may take me some time to get over my curiosity. So, given my playful nature (I'm only a year old....just a big ole puppy), my foster mom says that I will be so much fun for an active family! Could you be that active family looking for a playful pup to add to your family?!

I'm a sweet and gentle 8ish year old girl that found myself at the Fort Bend Shelter. A shelter is no place for any animal but especially an 8 year old gal like me! They say I'm people (all ages) friendly and I know how to sit! There's still a lot about me that's not known at this time.......like cats and dogs. I haven't been evaluated yet around either. They do say that I'm crate trained, I'm very sweet and I love to give sweet kisses! I'm excited to find my new forever home........but at this time, I'm also in need of a foster home. More information about me will be posted as soon as I'm in a foster home and my foster family has time to learn more about me!

      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! 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. 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: 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.
