Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Warren Hood is better known as Fennec by his foster - like a Fennec Fox! This adorable dog with the magical ears has come a long way to get where he is today. Fennec is a lover of humans, cuddles, play time, and zoomies. He somehow manages to combine gorgeous athleticism with endearing awkwardness. He'll soar through the air in a game of chase but toss him a ball and he's like that infamous video of a retriever missing the treat catch in hilarious slow motion. Awkward catching skills or no, he's quite a smartypants who learns quickly and enjoys showing off his puzzle toy solving skills. Fennec is now putting those smarts to work as part of Dogs Out Loud, a training program to help shelter dogs meet their full potential. He is kicking some serious tushy on his training goals and building himself quite a fan club along the way. Fennec has been saved twice from shelter euthanasia, no easy feat for a sensitive bully breed boy. He's hoping his luck holds and takes him all the way home to stay this time! To learn more about Fennec or set up a time to meet him, email adopt@dogsoutloud.org! *Did you know?

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.

      Rustler

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. We've rustled up a good'un here! Rustler is a handsome, healthy young adult who would love to settle in with a family. This fun dog will put a smile on everyone's face. Rustler has previously lived in a home, so he knows his way around the house. He's good with basic commands and is anxious to learn more. He's fantastic on a leash - he loves to go for walks, and he doesn't get distracted by other people or dogs, as he keeps his focus on his walking partner. Rustler has a medium energy level, and once he's back at home he takes life a little slower. He's very affectionate, and loves to be with his favorite people. He's got an ever-present bounce in his step that reflects his sunny outlook, and wants to be everyone's friend. Because he's previously lived with a family, Rustler is not particularly enamored with shelter life, and he'd love a chance to make a great impression on you! Don't forget that when you adopt from APA!, you're helping two dogs - the one you're welcoming into your home, and the one who will be able to join our program.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Chickla is undecided about what she loves best - a good romp in the yard, playtime with her dog buddies, or lots of pets from her human friends. But hey, does she really have to choose? This sweet girl is as happy as can be and has a contagious zest for life. She's lived with dogs of all sizes in the past, along with a cat and kids, and has been a playful girlfriend to all. Plus, she loves snuggling with her grownup humans, who reportedly love to pet her velvety-soft fur. Chickla is a smart girl who answers to 'sit' and walks very well on her leash. She's crate and house trained, and does fine when left to roam a house. Doesn't she sound like the whole package? If you think so, come scoop her up! One look at her smile, and you'll be hers forever.

Rufus is happy doing just about anything - whether that's zooming around the yard, chasing tennis balls, or lounging in mud puddles like the cutest little hippo you've ever seen. Once he gets a few zoomies out of the way, he's ready to lounge around and watch a Netflix marathon. No matter what he's doing, though, he's doing it with a huge grin and a huge tongue hanging out! His big smile and his wiggly butt are hard to resist. APA!'s favorite little hippo lives big and loves big. We can't wait for him to get into a home where his big love is reciprocated and where he gets all the snuggling he can handle. Come meet this goofy charmer today!

      Breed: Dachshund
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Beagle. Petunia is an easy going, playful love bug. Her current foster says her favorite thing to do is chase critters in the yard. She's always on a hunting excursion. She's also equally content to hang around close to her people and observe. Sweet Petunia loves to cuddle, and will gently ask for chin scratches, ear rubs, and belly pats. She does very well with other dogs, and seems to really like kids. She is an angel in her crate, walks wonderfully on her leash, and always comes when she's called. She doesn't bark much, and is an eager learner. She truly aims to please. Petunia does require a little TLC as she struggles with incontinence. She is on some prescription food that helps her out, and she's content to wear a diaper if that's a preference. It's pretty adorable too! There's nothing quite like the awesome greeting this girl will give her people when they get home! She's full of excitement! Her foster raves about her beautiful soulful eyes, and her cute "1st position ballet dancer turned out legs. Petunia is such a wonderful companion, and is excited to find her forever family. She would love having other dog siblings, and would do well with kids in the home as well. She has so much love to give, and can't wait to have it so deservedly returned. Come meet this little lady! She'll win you over with her spunk!

      Posted Breed: Shepherd. Zydeco is an athletic, energetic, fun-loving pal! This smart, eager-to-please guy does very well on walks and runs, and is incredibly alert to his surroundings.

It's a very rewarding feeling to win his love! He really is the epitome of the ultimate loyal best friend.

He'd also love to join a family that would include him on their outings and adventures. He has so much love to give his perfect family, and can't wait to cover them in kisses!

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. To Dax, every day would be Independence Day - if he just didn't need those humans to toss his tennis balls. This tiny, spunky boy is happy to entertain himself. But he will check in with his humans for attention, especially when it involves those tennis balls. And treats! He loves small, squeaky tennis balls and will prance to pick one up, then toss it into the air himself to catch again. He's also fond of other small squeaky toys. Once Dax is done with playtime, he's content to just hang out and once again display his independence. Like a little king, he's pleased to interact with you, but you need his permission first. Then he'll give kisses and accept a cuddle. This feisty boy walks well on a leash and he promises to be a delightful companion

      Lady Red

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. We don't know much about Lady Red's past, but we are certain that her future is sunny, with a 100% chance of a forever family. Lady Red currently resides in a very special and loving foster home, where she has proven over and over how perfect she is. As a low maintenance gal, who is house and crate trained and who loves nothing more than to meet and greet new people with her striking beauty and soft manners, she'd be a good addition to most families. Just like us humans, our beautiful Lady comes with some quirks. She is partially blind, possibly due to having Canine Diabetes. This is a chronic disease that is very easily managed by having her on a controlled glucose (sugar) dog food, as well as insulin shots. Lady Red knows this quick shot is part of her daily health routine so administering her medication is very simple. This beauty is so intuitive, that it took her close to nothing to memorize her foster home and breeze through it with no problems, regardless of her visual impairment. On a recent interview, Lady Red confessed that her favorite activities are car rides and napping under the sun, as they make her feel warm and fuzzy feelings. She absolutely loves the feeling of soft wind and the shiny sun on her sweet face, and she can often be seen around town walking and exploring with her foster family. She has good leash manners and is learning basic commands. Lady Red has come a long way to find her place in this world. If you'd like to walk this earth right next to her, don't delay! She'll be waiting patiently.

      Ralph

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. We are looking for a family who owns about 10,000 tennis balls so that Ralph will feel right at home. OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but this happy dog's best friend is anyone who will play fetch with him - preferably with tennis balls. Ralph is a young adult who has previously lived in a home, so it should be fairly easy for him to make the transition to yours. He is an affectionate, friendly dog who loves being with people, especially adults and older kids. But his true love is chasing around the ol' tennis ball. Ralph would love nothing more than a family who could take him out for some fetch. Ralph is also good on leash and will make a walking or running partner. He has an above average energy level and would love to be with an active family so everyone can get their exercise! Ralph knows his basic commands and would enjoy learning more. In a home where he can receive attention and consistency, we think we would turn into a great long-term family companion. And remember that when you adopt, you'll also be helping another dog who can take Ralph's place in our program!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Sparky is a sparkler of a boy and, really, just a giant lovebug who's pretty sure he's a lapdog. This sweet boy's foster says he's one of "the most cuddly dogs I've ever been around." He loves to lay his head in his person's lap and let his head be stroked. Then he'll want to struggle on the bed or couch - but he's also willing to go off on his own. Sparky has occasional bursts of energy, but he is mostly a calm, well-mannered boy who walks well on his leash. He's crate trained, seems house trained and answers to the "sit" and "come" commands. And he's working on "stay." When he's in a playful mood, Sparky loves to play with his squeaky toys and he's happy when his human throws the toy or plays tug-o-war. Sometimes he'll fetch the toy, but mostly he runs with it and throws it for himself. Sparky will be a wonderful addition to a home where he can be a companion for an owner who wants to give him love, snuggles and long walks with lots of time for sniffing. Come mee this boy!

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund. Mickey is a fabulous walker on his leash, eager for neighborhood walks. And he likes playing with soft toys and is fun to watch as he zooms around the play yard. He'd love access to a little pool for some happy splashing. He is good at leaving cats alone, and even seems a little scared of them. Mickey will be a great addition to an adult-only home, where his people can take him for walks, chill on the couch with him and let him be their adorable watchdog. Mickey plays very well the dogs in his playgroup, if sometimes rowdy with smaller dogs. He just wants to be in charge of the group, so he's happiest when his playmates are on the submissive side, big or small. He currently lives with three larger dogs and enjoys thinking he is the boss of them. He's somewhat the opposite with humans. He's fearful with strangers and can be nippy with people he doesn't know and trust, especially children who approach his kennel. He prefers females over males, but can warm up to males. He needs to have a human who isn't afraid of him and understands how to handle his "naughty" behavior. But once he gets well acquainted and comfortable, he becomes his human friend's cuddle buddy, happy to hang out by his person's side, or even in her lap. He can be a loyal little guard dog, ready to alert his person to any evil that might be lurking. He is always alert, and may do best in a non-apartment home. Come meet this little guy today!
