Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). "My adoption fee has been totally sponsored by my awesome caretakers and an awesome donor! Please fill out an application to adopt me today! My ideal home has no other animals and has experience with strong dogs like me!" Sammie is alert, house trained, and well behaved in her foster home. She walks nicely on a leash, waits for her toys (she loves toys and playing!!) and knows basic, obedience commands. Like most young dogs, Sammie can be exuberant and can take advantage if not given direction, so a strong caring leader is required. With proper introduction she likes other dogs, is great with people and loves car rides. Because of her size and strength, she would be best in a home without young children. Also, Sammie does not like cats (and vacuums). Sammie’s estimated birthdate is 11/3/2013. If you want to know more about Sammie and to speak to an Adoption Counselor, please complete an application at https://furkids.org/dog-adoptions/application. Must be at least 21 years of age to apply. Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/furkidsinc.

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.

His ideal home is one with kindness and love and a nice fenced back yard. If that sounds like your home and you please call his favorite adoption counselor Ashley to arrange a meet and greet.

If you adopt me, our trainer will teach you how to help me learn that I don't need to guard things.” Annabell Barbie was once lost but found herself at Furkids' shelter where she became one of the shelter staff's favorite dogs. Her efforts to please and be noticed got her a free ride to one of our wonderful foster homes. After a few days with her foster family, we received a report that Annabell Barbie is very sweet, playful, curious and happy. She plays with great delight and vigor, but settles down pretty quickly. Annabell Barbie loves to be with her two-legged friends and will give you the joy of having a companion forever. She does not particularly like to be crated, but is well-behaved in the crate. Annabell Barbie is waiting patiently for her special someone. Will that be you?

Motherhood is but a distant memory for me after having received wonderful care at Furkids. I have been taught commands, such as “sit” and “belly rubs”. Oh ... “belly rubs” isn’t a command? Well it should be because it’s what I’m best at (other than being cuddled in your lap). And treats! I’m great at taking all of those you want to give me, too! I really hope to find an active family who likes to play and run as much as I do."

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi my name is Petey and I weigh about 25lbs---that's 25lbs of snuggle and fun! I love to run and play and then find my mom or dad to give them kisses, and then I'm off to play with my toys, a doggie friend, chew on a bone, or roll around in my bed. I have learned that bathroom time is for outdoors and my meals are taken indoors. I have been learning not to pull on my leash when I walk, I also walk very nicely with other dogs. I still get a bit nervous from time-to-time around new people & new dogs, so I may hide behind you. I'm a young guy with lots of energy, so my foster mom thinks a backyard is ideal for me. I like most other dogs and love to wrestle and sleep up tight next to them. Each morning I wake up with a smile, I sit for my treats on command and am grateful for all the loving care you can provide. Love, Petey Petey weighs 25 lbs. and his estimated birthdate is 2/8/2016.
