Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Male cutie pit pittie mix looking for love We have taken care of Trip at our pet resort several times. We know this is an extremely difficult decision for Trip's Mom and Dad but Trip simply isn't happy in his home. Trip will make a fabulous bestie. Please consider adopting this silly smiley boy. Trip is an adorable three year old pittie mix. He is obedient and wants to please, and loves receiving praise from his humans. He has a lot of energy and would need a home where he could be exercised. He has lived with another dog, and is currently boarding in San Antonio with about 20 other dogs while receiving additional training. He is a bit insecure, and would need a strong leader, preferably someone with bully-breed experience. He loves toys, treats, bully sticks, bones, and all things yummy! He would make a great addition for that special person/family, and will be your best friend for life. Watch his video to see how beautifully is now plays with other doggies.

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.

      Sharona

      rescue
      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Pomeranian / Mixed (medium coat). Sugar sweet little bitty girl Sweet little bitty Sharona was brought to us bald from mange. She was living in an outside pen with no love or protection from the weather. She was so neglected, itchy mange was taking over her body. Even through all of that, her sweet, loving nature has been unaffected. She's fantastic with kiddos, all dogs, cats, EVERYONE!! She's an absolute gift. Sharona is approx 1 1/2 years old. She will remain very small. She's now healthy (no more mange) and happy. Our guess is she has pomerenian in her because her hair is looking so fluffy, now that it's growing back in. She does still need potty training work. She is crate trained, leash trained and very quiet. She will make a wonderful, adorable addition to a loving family.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Corgi / Mixed (medium coat). SUGAR SWEET, happy, loving little boy Radar Rex is a sweet, snuggly little boy. He bounces soooooo adorably when he sees his people!! He is quiet and loving. His previous owner was a backyard breeder who was going to euthanize him due to his bow-legs. :o( Those bow-legs make him EVEN CUTER!!!! He's young, crate trained, leash trained and seems to be potty trained. He seems to be good with other doggies too!!! What a sweet boy!! We assume, since he is so gentle, he will be good with kitties too. Those BIG EARS will be perfect for this little buddy to listen to and keep your secrets.

      Breed: Bichon Frise-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bichon Frise / Mixed (medium coat). 3 year old cutie in need of a special home Charlie was living with a family for the first 3 years of his life. He was in a great deal of pain yet put in prozac, instead of getting the care for his back he needed. After he started acting out, due to pain, his 'family' got rid of him. How very sad for this little boy. UPDATE from Charlie's foster Mama 2.28.2017 " Charlie is still looking for his forever home. He needs a very special, patient, super duper doggie knowledgeable human. He gets along great with other dogs and doesn't mind cats. Because Charlie's medical condition went neglected for so long, he has conditioned himself to act out a little. He wants love and cuddles on his terms. Please share this boy, or make a donation to # IOnceWasLostAnimalAdvocacy because they've taken on Charlie full time. I can only foster him every once in a while. If we could send him to more heat therapy sessions that would help him. He also needs supplements for his skin allergies. Poor little pumpkin, he really is a good boy. He minds so well. " We are happy we have him because it turns out he has bone spurs in his back so he was in a bunch of pain. He is regularly seeing a chiropractor and is making good progress. Because of this pain, Charlie can sometimes be a little naughty toward strangers or towards commotion. If his needs are understood, Charlie will be a fantastic little buddy. Charlie needs a home that will be devoted to his special needs and will understand who he is. If this is all in place, Charlie is a little sweet cutie pie who is a pleasure to be around. Charlie LOVES other doggies and really really LOVES car rides!!!! Charlie's trainer says he's "very smart" Charlie's foster mom says Charlie says " I LOVE car rides they bring me such joy. I want the whole world to see. I am learning that this world has so much love to offer and that I don't have to be so unsure about everyone." & "I'm learning so much thanks to all my angels for making sure I am given another chance." If you might be the special home Charlie needs, please message us to schedule a time to meet this little boy. ♥♥ Additional Information: Charlie seriously needs a home that can respect and understand his back issues. He has bone spurs that cause him pain. For the most part he's adorable, not to mention the cutest thing ever :o), but he will bite if his space isn't respected. He truly needs a home that will give him space and only pet him when he requests it. In other words, he isn't a snuggly little thing. He simply needs a home that will give him kindness, love, healthy food, gentle care and understanding. Also, no kiddos. He LOVES other dogs and would also be good with cats. The best home for him would have another dog, who the humans can snuggle with and pet, along with Charlie, who would be in a home where he feels safe but can kind of be on the outskirts of the family unit. We would be ecstatic to find a home for him. It just needs to be the right home. We do have other small adoptables, who Charlie regularly hangs out with. Adopting him along with one of his friends would be a win-win. The new family would have a doggie they could snuggle with, Charlie would have his buddy AND he would have a safe, loving home to call his.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). scruffy, full of personality, special boy Trevor was in a kill shelter when he was rescued by I Once Was Lost. He's a super snuggly sweet boy with a big personality in that little body. He seems to be great with other dogs. He's a perfect size to be a buddy out on the town or just a snuggle partner. He's great on a leash and LOVES his tennis ball. He entertains himself with his ball in a way that will make you smile every day!!! Trevor would probably do best in a home without much commotion. He super duper smart and would do GREAT with a job. He needs a home who understands the border terrier personality. He's a very good boy with border terrier energy. We will very happily pay for a session with our favorite trainer to show his family how awesome he is and what will make him happy forever and ever. Please enjoy Trevor's Pet of the Week Spot here: http://www.fox7austin.com/good-day/200056329-story Trevor is crate trained, potty trained, & leash trained. He's a fun sweet boy who will do a great job of creating loving, fun memories for his family ♥

      Leo

      Breed: Lab-Pointer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). W e have neighbors who are completely irresponsible and, frankly, awful. Over the few years we have been here, we have rescued 10 dogs from them and placed them in loving homes. Most recently this sweet boy, Leo showed up on our property. They came and reclaimed him 5 times. He has now been with us for over a month. It is now clear we need to find him a forever home. Leo is sugar sweet and LOVES hugs. He leans his big, sweet head as far into you as possible ♥ He showed up with another dog so we assume he is good with other dogs. He's smart and very good and quiet. He is also young (around 1 1/2). We have neutered him and had him tested for heartworm (negative-yay!). The one and only negative about this little smartie is he can clear 6-8 foot fences. So, he needs a home that can manage that. With that, he will be the most wonderful, loving family member. ♥ He would also be GREAT at agility or scent work, because he's so smart and wants to please. We believe Leo to be a Pointer/Lab mix. AKC describes says about pointers "... in his expression are the loyalty and devotion of a true friend of man" This is so true of Leo.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). super sweet, shy, loving Chihuahua mix This precious little boy was dumped at a kill shelter. He was then placed in a pen with big dogs who attacked him and severely broke his leg. Without medical care on his leg, he was sent home with a foster and pain meds. After THREE MONTHS he was returned to the shelter and placed on the kill list. That's when we found out about him and pulled him to safety. Buddy has had surgery on his leg. He doesn't like to use that leg. However, nothing has broken his beautiful spirit and sweet personality. Buddy needs a home that understands his little leg doesn't work like a normal leg. We believe after time, he will learn to use his leg again. Buddy is young (around 1 year old), he is crate trained and he LOVES LOVES LOVES dogs. Because of his sugar sweet nature we feel he will also be great with cats. Buddy is otherwise very healthy and ready for some true love.
