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.

      Location: Ann Arbor, MI
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. At 7 years old, Levi is looking for a relaxing home with a comfy spot for snoozing. He likes to snuggle up close, get belly rubs, and give gentle kisses! He&#39;s a bit unsure of new people and places and prefers to stick close to home where he feels safe. Since he can be nervous at times, he would do best in a home without little kids. Levi is house trained, neutered, up-to-date on his vaccinations, and microchip. Whoever adopts this guy is gonna be so lucky!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Ann Arbor, MI
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Uno wants to be your only one! This big beefy boy is just so happy to meet around you. This two-year-old Shepherd mix is an active and social dog that would love to spend his day playing with you and getting all of your attention. If you are looking for a dog to have lots of adventures with, please come meet Uno today. Uno has heartworm which means that this dog has parasitic worms in the right ventricle of the heart and nearby blood vessels. Heartworm is transmitted from one dog to another by mosquitoes and can be easily prevented using monthly heartworm preventative, but once the disease is contracted the treatment process can be quite intensive. Uno will need to remain sedentary with minimal activity during the treatment process to ensure a healthy recovery. There is additional information on heartworm disease and treatment available at our Adoption Desk.
