Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. I’m Sunshine, and I’m about 4 years old. My story is one of hope and survival, as I was found injured beside the road by a Good Samaritan. This person cared enough to pick me up, and get me to the shelter. The DFW Humane Society was able to pay for me to get the necessary surgery to repair my leg, and to provide a safe place for me to recover. I know some commands, and I love to run and play. I am unsure of small children and other dogs, and will do best in a quiet home. You could say that I’m a special girl that is looking for a special home. One with lots of love, soft beds, and grass to play in. Come see me

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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. ~~Hi. My name is Randy. I’m a little over a year old, and was brought in from another shelter. Most dogs my age are crazy energetic, but I’m not. I’m a laid back calm boy, who prefers a quiet walk to rough housing or chasing a ball. I am a great size, not being too small to lose under the sofa, or too large as to eat you out of house and home. I also know a few commands, including being good on a leash. Oh, and I’m wire haired, so minimal shedding. So in summary, I’m a great companion! Come meet me.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. I’m Ferris. I’m about 3 ½ years old and was brought in with a badly broken leg. My leg has been repaired now, but I still have a bit of a limp. They say I’m a Labrador mix, and that mix is strong. When you meet me, you will definitely notice the Labrador traits. I'm an outgoing, friendly boy, who I loves meeting new people and playing with toys. I've not had anyone to teach me many commands, but if you come visit, you will see that I'm eager to please. I’m here. I’m ready. Let’s meet.

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. My name is Buddy. I’m about 3 years old. My family brought me in because they say I’m too active. I am an active boy, in need of a home where I can run and play. I know some commands, and can fetch. Maybe my new family would like to teach me to fetch shoes and newspapers. I would do great in a home that can keep me busy. You might think that an active guy like me would just want to run and play, but I must share that I also am quite the cuddlier. I would prefer to be your own fur baby. Come see me.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). ~~What’s up? They call me Chanelle. I'm about 8 years old, and was brought in from another shelter. I’m exactly what you would expect in a Labrador. Even at 8 years old, I am an active, friendly, happy girl. I love to run and play. Maybe more walking, than running as I am 8. I do love playing in water. I love meeting new people. I also know some commands. I will need a home without other female dogs. So come on by, and let’s get this next chapter started. I'm here. I'm ready. Let’s meet. Did I mention that I like water? I REALLY like water.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). ~~Hi there. I’m Shadow, and I’m about 2 ½ years old. I’ve been brought back a couple of times because the owners think I’m too active. When you meet me, I come across as a laid back girl. That appears to be a bit deceiving, because I’m going to be an active girl when you get me home. I do know some commands, and I am well-mannered. I’m just going to need a home where I can expend this happy energy. I’m a retriever mix, so maybe a family that will play fetch with me. A yard is high on my list of needs. The yard will need at least a 6 ft fence. So if you have room in your home, and yard for me then let’s meet.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. I’m Troy. I’m about 2 years old, and was brought in because I kept escaping my yard. You might notice from my picture that I’m a handsome boy. What you might not notice is my unusual small ears. So it is anyone’s guess what the mix is. But possibly I have some Shar Pei genes. My former family did a great job socializing me; as I’m good with other dogs and have a passion for human companionship, including children. I’m looking for a family that will play with me, hang out with me, and love me. I know a few commands, including that I’m good on a leash. If you are looking for a social loving boy that is in need of a forever home, then let’s meet.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed. Well hello there! I’ve been waiting for someone to check me out. I’m Ruby. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a 2 year old female shepherd/retriever mix, who like everyone else around here, is looking for my forever home and hoping that it might be with you. I’ll be honest. Though I’m two years old, I still have a lot of puppy in me. I am an active girl, no laying around for me. One of the things I love to do is run. And I do mean run, so I’m going to need a backyard where I can run and play as much as I want. I like to chase after toys. I haven’t got the game of fetch down yet, but I’m working on it. I’m friendly. Yes, I really like to be friends with everyone I meet. I came here from another shelter that was getting too crowded and now I’d like to make this one a little less crowded too. Know what I mean? So come on by and let’s get to know each other. I might be the new friend that you have been looking for.
