Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Name: Shelby Sex: Female Breed: Pit mix Age: 2 years Weight: 52 lbs Good with: People & Kids. Not tested with cats Shelby spent the greater part of her two years on the end of a chain, but she’s thrilled to have left that behind and it shows! She is dog friendly with the proper introductions, her previous life has made her wary of dogs approaching her, but her foster parents are building up her confidence each day and doing pack walks to get her socialized. She’s a very happy and friendly girl, loves meeting new people and all indications are that she’s very smart, she learns new commands easily and is quickly taking to leash training. Shelby is house trained and quiet, she loves to sleep and snuggle and is gentle when taking treats and at playtime. More to come as we get to know this beautiful lady!

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.

I'm Maya (aka Daisy)! Did you notice how stunning and gorgeous I am? Take another look. I'm a jewel! Yes, I can be Diva, but if you pet me I'll melt like butter. And I get really happy if you give me lots of praise. My tail wags a mile a minute and I prance! I'm looking for a dog savvy person to bring me home. Do you have older kids? I'd like to meet them. It's all about R-E-S-P-E-C-T, as the Anita Franklin's song goes. I'm super smart and I'm learning all kinds of commands in the training program I'm in right now. The best time to take me home is right after I am done. Hurry and come and meet me! I can hardly wait!

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Name: Queenie Sex: Female Breed: American Bulldog mix Age: 4 yrs Weight: 65 lbs Good with: People and kids. No dogs or cats Queenie loves being with her humans, is very snuggly and loves her belly rubs. She is curious and active, loves long walks, hiking, running and going on car rides. She knows "sit", "paw", "down", "wait" and waiting for the “OK” command. She is working hard on her reactivity with dogs and is showing good progress. She was tested with a cat just outside of her kennel, showed regular interest - tail wagging the whole time. She is house and crate trained and can chill and be left alone uncrated for up to 8 hours, no barking. Queenie has been working on her leash skills and is a quick learner, listens and wants to please. She’s also a strong girl and has a high prey drive but is quick to respond to correction. Queenie is quite the love and has been patiently waiting for her furever home and would be perfect with an active owner or family that is dog experienced.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Name: Lou Lou Sex: Female Breed: Pit Mix Age: approx 1-2 yrs old Weight: 50 lbs Good with: **Dogs** **Adults & Teenagers** **no cats** LouLou is from a local shelter where she was found as a stray. She is a very sweet girl who loves belly rubs and hanging out with her people. She is eager to please and very fast to learn. Lou Lou has been through a professional training program and was/is superb student. She loves playing with other dogs so she would love another pup pal to play with in her forever home. She is very good on and off leash, is house trained, and crate trained. Lou Lou enjoys her quiet time in her crate with treats. She is still learning to share so her new home needs to be mindful of toys and meal times. She would love for her new family to continue training with her and take advantage of the lifetime training support that comes with her. Lou Lou has so much love to give...you can see it in her sweet, kind eyes. She would add so much laughter and fun to anyone's home! Comments from her foster dad: She is professionally trained and continues training with her foster. She knows all her commands. Sit, down, place, and come. Enjoys playing with other dogs, but doesn't always share well. Very athletic and loves to play, but she also likes to chill and hug/cuddle. Medium energy. Crate and house trained. Very smart.
