Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi there. My name is Sunshine, and I'm about 2 and ½ years old. I was found lying on the side of the road with a broken leg, and was carried by a kind soul to the shelter. The DFW Humane Society found a local vet to repair my leg, and I'm ready to start the next chapter of my life. I love to hangout and chill, or going for walks. I am unsure of other dogs, so being the only fur baby would be best. So if you have room in your home and heart for a sweet girl that is ready for a loving forever home, come on by.

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: Irving, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi. My name is Hank. I'm a little over a year, and was brought in because I will do best without young children. When you meet me, you will definitely notice the Labrador traits. I'm a very outgoing, friendly, sweet, smart boy, who is looking to please. While I have the energy of a lab, I also have a laid-back cuddly side. I love people, I know some commands, and cannot wait to have a new family of my own. A home where I can be the only furry baby will be best. So if you have room in your heart and home for a sweet loving boy, let’s meet.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Irving, TX
      Posted Breed: Fox Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi there. I’m Avery, and I came in with my brother Art. I’m about 8 months old. Don’t asked how big I’m going to get, because I’m a dainty young man, but with long legs. So it will be anyone’s guess how much growing I will do at this point. My 2 favorite things are running, and cuddling. Those 2 things would seem contradictory. But turn me loose in a yard, and I will run like the wind. But sit down on the ground, and I will crawl right into your lap for a cuddle. I would love to find a forever family that will is available to cuddle, and to teach me some commands. Oh, and I’m quite fond of my brother Art, if you have room for us both. Come see me.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Irving, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. ~~Hi! I'm Ralphi and I'm looking for my forever home. As you can tell from the info next to my picture, I'm about 1 ½ years old and a male. They say I'm a Chihuahua mix, but whoever Mom mixed with, it definitely wasn't a Chihuahua. I mean, just look at my legs! No way are those Chihuahua legs. Those legs were made for running and that is what I love to do. Flat out. Full blast. Given my love of running, I could sure use a home with a nice backyard where I can run as much as I'd like to. Now you might think that with my love of running, I might be a real active dog, but that just isn't me. I'm actually very calm and I love being around people and other dogs. I had a home, but they discovered that having a pet was a bigger responsibility than they were ready for right now. So you could say that I'm looking for a second chance. If you think that I may be just the dog for you, come over and visit me. I'll be looking forward to seeing you.
