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.

      Location: Irving, TX
      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.

      Posted Breed: Plott Hound / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. My name is Kane. I’m about 1 year old, and was rescued from another shelter. They say that I'm a Plott Hound/American Pit Bull mix. Well that is a mix because many pit bulls are laid back, while Plott Hounds are active. I am true to the hound breed, because I’m an active happy-go-lucky young guy, who is looking to stay busy. I have a beautiful mottle coat of a Plott Hound, with gorgeous eyes that match my coat. I’m going to do best with a family that has room for me to run and play. A home that already has a furry brother or sister, would be great. I'm here. I'm ready. Let’s go.

      Posted Breed: Dutch Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. I’m Nala. I’m about 9 months old, and was rescued from another shelter. They say I’m a smooth coated Dutch Shepherd mix, and my appearance and personality would indicate that I’m just that. I'm a sweet, friendly, active girl. I know some commands. Like any shepherd, I'm smart and fun-loving. I like to chase anything you throw. I’m just a little rusty on the catching, and could use a family to practice with me on the catching, and other fun activities. So if you are ready for a fun furry friend, let’s meet.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi there! My name is Scotty. I’m about 7-8 years old, and was brought in because apparently I’m not good with chickens. Surely you will agree that was an unfair test. I’m sure there are lots of dogs that would fail that home test. I’m a big boy that definitely has the sweet personality of a lab. I’m good with children and other dogs. I also know some commands. So if you room in your heart, and chicken-free home for a sweet, loving senior boy, come on over and visit.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Hi. My name is Mae, and I’m about 2 years old. I was rescued from another shelter. When you meet me, you will definitely notice my fun wiry coat, and while no dog is allergy free, the wiry coat would indicate that I'm hypoallergenic, and tend to shed less. The second thing you will notice, if you spend even one minute with me, is my wonderful happy personality. I love people. I love to play. I love to cuddle. I also know some commands. I'll be here waiting. Let’s meet.
