Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Pointer / Mixed. Meet Loki! This happy boy is sure to make you smile! He is a fun loving, goofy, energetic dude. He makes an excellent running buddy and loves taking long walks, but he also likes to just hang out with you in the house. He does pull on a leash but will settle down and behaves himself nicely around other dogs and distractions. He loves a game of fetch and will even catch a disc out of the air. He also enjoys playing with other similar sized dogs, but can be too much for the little ones. He is an extremely smart guy who also enjoys learning tricks and has been practicing a little agility in his backyard. Loki is a mixed breed. We could definitely see Border Collie or even Pointer in him, but it is a mystery to us. Either way, he is a total lover and although he has a lot of energy, he is very well behaved in the home and does settle down nicely. Loki is house trained, doesn't chew on things he shouldn't, and can be kenneled. He is also obedient and would love to show you some of his tricks. Loki has excellent manners in the car and absolutely loves going for a car ride. Loki is five years old and about 60 pounds. If Loki sounds like your type of guy, apply to adopt him today. He is such a nice dog who really deserves that perfect forever home. Interested in adopting this lovable animal? Please go to our website www.wagsmn.org and fill out an Adoption Application.

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: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: Hound / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Izzy is an adorable little 2-year old mix we believe to be part hound and terrier, weighing around 40 lbs. If there is one word to describe Izzy, it would be happy! This dog is full of life! There is no lack of personality here. Izzy is always eager to meet new people and make new friends. When she greets you after a long day of work with her full body wiggles and looks at you with those big brown eyes and goofy ears, you can't help but smile. Not only is Izzy a fun loving dog, she is also a very intelligent girl that is extremely treat, toy, and praise motivated, making her a fun dog to train. With her drive and intelligence, the sky is the limit for Izzy. For someone looking for a dog to train fun tricks or partake in dog activities, Izzy would be great dog. She thrives in a home that provides her with plenty of mental and physical stimulation. Some of Izzy's favorite activities include running around outside and playing fetch and she’d probably also love to romp around in a kiddy pool. Not only does Izzy like to play, she is also a top notch snuggle buddy and knows just how to chill out when it is time to just kick back and relax at home. She has also been known to sneak in a doggy kiss or two when you aren't looking. Izzy absolutely adores children and would love a family with kids to keep her active. However, we do think Izzy should go to a home with school age children and older as she can be a little exuberant and may knock the little ones over. Izzy would do best as the only dog in her home. She is also a little too interested in cats to live with them safely. Izzy is fully house and crate trained and is past the naughty puppy stage. She has even taken a formal obedience class where she has learned all her basic manners which means she is ahead of the curve and will already be a well trained pup for when her new family brings her home. If Izzy sounds like a good match for your home, apply to meet her today! Interested in adopting this lovable animal? Please go to our website www.wagsmn.org and fill out an Adoption Application.

      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: Pug / Beagle / Mixed. Hi I’m Chevy, an AWESOME dog (so they tell me!), who is almost 8 years old and 20 pounds. I am the best cuddle buddy, so if you're looking for a dog who loves to snuggle, come meet me! I am so eager to be loved and can transition very easily into your home and routine. My current foster family has a big gray kitty and we get along great! I also do great with dogs when I can meet them off leash. But everyone keeps bragging about me being such a great dog to walk. The secret is out… I LOVE going for walks, almost as much as I love to cuddle. I like to have a couple walks a day, one in the morning and one before dinner. I also like it when someone is available to take me out for potty breaks frequently, even if I don’t let you know I have to go. I have two "separate" looks. When my ears are down and my mouth is closed I look so angelic! And then I smile with a great big grin and you can see my adorable crooked teeth! From his foster mom: Chevy is a LOVE!! He loves meeting new people and being in the mix. He gets some playful bursts now and then but settles down easily with stuffed toys and fluffy pillows. Chevy has had some issues with bladder infections and at this time will require special dog food to support his kidneys. He wears a belly band in our house and is very happy and comfortable wearing it. (I will send it with him to his new home.) Chevy has some exposure to children, but should be monitored with children. Chevy's ability to get along in many situations will make him a lucky addition to any family. Interested in adopting this lovable animal?

      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Meet Gotti! He’s a sweet, playful boy born Oct 2013. He is fully potty-trained and crate-trained. He has spent a lot of time around children and would love some older kids to grow up with. One of the best things about Gotti is how incredibly sweet he is. He loves to snuggle, and cuddle time is just as important as play time to him. Gotti loves to run outside and play in the snow and would love a yard to play in. Gotti tolerates cats that don't mind dogs, but a slow introduction is best. He likes learning new skills and already knows: sit, down, stop, stay, wait, follow when prompted while walking on a leash, back, wait to leave the door/kennel, he even sits still to have his nails clipped! Gotti also loves riding in the car. Gotti is an exceptional dog with a huge desire to please and be a good boy and he can't wait to be picked to join your family! Gotti will need to go to a home with a fenced in yard. Interested in adopting this lovable animal? Please go to our website www.wagsmn.org and fill out an Adoption Application.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed. Hi, I’m Jaxon. I’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places. And it’s time to tame my Playboy ways and settle down with my one true love. I’m a two year old, medium-sized lab-mix, 50+ pounds, devilishly handsome, strong muscular build and deep brown eyes. My Ideal Date Breakfast. A nice walk outside. Car ride. Then, party at the Dog Park! I love to run free, play with dogs off leash, and meet new people. After all the fun, I’m ready to chill for the rest of the day. What I’m Looking For I’ll be your Wingman. I’ll be your Prince. I just want to be all yours! I don’t want to share you with other dogs in the house. Those felines are fine. And the little kid things...we’d have to see how it goes. I know I can be a little jealous, but I just want to be the only one in your heart! What I’m Working On We’re all works-in-progress, right? I know I should bark less at neighbors walking by the house, but do we really know what they’re up to? I do prefer slower introductions to people and dogs. And, if I had more time to practice walking on-leash, I’d become quite good at it. My Best Traits Loyalty – The only place I want to be is by your side. Resting my head on your leg, waiting at the end of the bed when you get ready for work, following you to the laundry room. Energy – I’ve got the fastest swinging tail wag this side of the Mississippi. Running, jumping and playing are my favorite things. Your furniture is not off limits, is it? Listening – I come when I’m called. I stay out of the kitchen if I have to. I sit (for a treat). I’ll go to my kennel when asked. Interested? Meet me for dog treats. My foster family adores me and know I’m Mr. Right Dog for the perfect family, like yours! Interested in adopting this lovable animal?

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Bulldog / Mixed. Hi, I’m Harper! People keep telling me that I am such a good boy. I’m a total couch potato. If you want a big hunk of a beautiful pooch to be lazy with, I’m your guy. I don’t bark much and, when I do, my bark doesn’t sound as big as I am. My foster trusts me enough to let me have free roam in the house, even when the people are gone. I just chill with my dog pal that shares his home with me. Sometimes we play musical dog beds. I get along great with dogs, and I’m super excited to meet them at first. I’m pretty curious about cats. I might do ok with a dog-savvy cat. I do want to chase if they run because that seems like a time to play. When we go for walks, I do pull on the leash and I’m quite strong. I’ve been working on those manners, but you might want to pump some iron just in case. I think short walks are great. Running a long distance might be a bit too much for me. I like being outside as long as my people are nearby. I get a little excited when I first meet people, but I calm down pretty fast. Oh, and I know tricks—I can sit and shake when you ask me. I’ll even sit before you open the door to bring me outside. I’m also really good riding in a car. I just lie down and take a nap. *Snooze* I am six years old and past my crazy puppy years! I am already house trained and crate trained. Now I just need my family to come along and find me. Interested in adopting this lovable animal?

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Shakopee, MN
      Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Mixed. Hi my name is Snoop. I am a male chow mix, born in June, 2006 and weigh 60 pounds. I am a native to Minnesota and love to explore the Minnesota country side. I am shy so I will need time to acclimate to a new environment and people, which doesn’t take long. A quieter, low-key home would allow me the opportunity to get used to new things at my own pace. My foster mom is teaching me the basic commands, like: stay, lay down, and heel. Since I am an older dog, I am already potty trained. I don't enjoy time in the kennel, but my foster mom leaves me out when she's gone and I am very well behaved. I am a non-destructive chewer and only play with doggie toys, I do not jump on people and I do enjoy looking out the window from time to time. I suppose you can say I am a well-mannered, large dog, wise in my doggie years and very calm. I am good with dogs of all sizes but I do prefer older dogs or less active ones. Remember, I'm a senior and those young, crazy ones can be a bit too much for me. Do you have pesky squirrels in your yard? No problem, I’ll chase them up the tree and out of the yard for you. Sometimes I think cats are like squirrels and like to chase them, so I shouldn't live with cats. I do pull a little when on walks, so my foster mom is teaching me leash manners. I'm just so excited to see what my new neighborhood has to offer. I jump on the bed where I love to sleep with you or even the couch where we can snuggle while we watch Animal Planet. I am knee height, and have a low energy level. I do great on car rides; I tend to look out the back window at the car behind us just to say “Hi”. Eventually, I settle down and wait for the car to stop at our destination. Overall, I am perfect companion for someone who wants a senior dog. Are you my fur ever home?

I'm pretty petite weighing in around 15 lbs. I'm looking for my perfect match, someone who will take me on short walks (I'm tiny so long walks tire me out, unless you carry me) roll the ball to me, and give me loving touches (especially on my chest and belly). I get along with school age kids and older and look forward to forming bonds with my new family. Although I may pick one human as my Alpha, I don't discriminate against love and gently petting from anyone. I currently reside with another dog and we get along pretty well. I like my personal space and respect the personal space of other dogs in the home. I will play with the other dogs outside, but I'm concerned larger dogs might squish me, so I keep my distance. I have a unique look to in that I have one ear that stands up and the other is folded over.

I am a little shy and sometimes strangers and loud noises scare me but once I am your friend I am happy to sit in your lap all day. I have been through two levels of obedience, which has helped me learn better manners and has made me less scared of the world around. I also love walks and doing zoomies! My foster mom says I am high energy and would benefit from a home with an active lifestyle; because of my high energy I would do best with older children that I can’t accidently knock down. Being a princess means I prefer all attention on me. I would do best in a home without cats and I am selective about my doggie friends. All I need is a structured schedule and a warm bed to sleep in!
