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: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Trapper, an ebullient and joyful dog, is really loving his adventure here at HSHV.(I'm helping this guy write about me!) A kind person found this buddy wandering a dusty dirt road (I saw a horse!) and happily invited him into their car for a quick little car ride (how fun!). Then Trapper wriggled and jumped his active little body down from the cab and into our building. (I must pee on each tree!) Trapper just boils over with enthusiasm when he is meeting new people (ladies, dudes, older children - love em!). He is still learning to not play with humans like he would his litter mates ( you humans can't keep up with me anyways!) and would really love to join an active family that has the time to train and exercise this handsome boy (I'm a student-athlete, really one of the best). Come fall in love with Trapper, he's sure to ensnare you with his great personality! (these people make bad puns, get me out of here!)

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Tillie is a sweet girl who needs your help! This 5-year-old Pitty mix came to us very shy and scared, and it took some time for her to be able to trust new people. She is in need of a special adopter who will be very patient with her while she adjusts to new surroundings, and someone who will help her build her confidence. There's a very active and fun dog hiding behind those nerves, and Tillie just needs a family who is able to help bring out that side of her! They say good things come to those who wait, and Tillie is no exception. Give this girl a chance to show her true colors, and you'll find a wonderful companion and a friend for life!

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. Who doesn't love a hound bay? Elijah, the nine-year-old hound is no exception, so no apartments for him please! He would love a family to go on nice casual strolls with and perhaps a cozy couch to sleep on afterwards. We think that since he is so laid back, he would appreciate a more low-key environment with no children under 12 and no feline friends where he can soak up the sun and smells. Come on in and meet this sweet boy soon.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Slow and steady is the key to winning the race to Cubby's heart. The world is a little scary to Cubby; he can be reserved with new people until he knows that they're trustworthy. If you're able to put in the time to get to know him, however, you'll see Cubby's fun-loving, playful, and oh so sweet side! Cubby would love to live with an active family who can take him for lots of walks and provide him with mentally stimulating activities so that he can expel his energy in a positive way. At the end of the day Cubby enjoys his quiet time, so he would prefer not to share his home with small children. This handsome boy is ready to settle in to his forever home; if you think that could be your home, come and meet him today!
