Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Ruby Sweet is calm and affectionate. She loves attention and likes to lean in for hugs. She has a playful side that comes out after you spend some time with her. She walks at a leisurely pace on leash and loves to investigate her surroundings. Ruby is 55 lbs and just over 3 years old. She has participated in shelter playgroups and was a little fearful of the other dogs at first but is now warming up to playtime. As always recommended, please bring your dog along to meet before adopting to make sure it is a good fit.  Staff will help set up a dog to dog intro while you are at the shelter. Adoption price includes spay, microchip, deworming, current vaccinations, 30 days of pet insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love.

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: Mastiff-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed. Hi! My name is Polina! I am a 6-year-old Mastiff mix gal who weighs 85 lbs.<br/><br/>I was brought in as a stray, so the nice people at the shelter are still learning things about me every day. Between you and me, the shelter environment is still pretty scary and overwhelming to me, so I am a bit shy and can take a bit of time to warm up. BUT, once I warm up, you will learn that I LOVE belly rubs--some even say I&#39;m a professional belly rub receiver!<br/><br/>You will also learn that I like going for walks and that I get a bit bouncy in the grass when I&#39;m happy. Oh, and I like playing with tennis balls and sticks in the yard! Do you have tennis balls and sticks in your yard? If so, I&#39;m your girl! And when I warm up even more, I can show you that I think that I can be a lap dog! Laps aren&#39;t just for small dogs, you know! But I am a gentle lap dog-trust me!<br/><br/>I walk really well on the leash, and I am treat-motivated, particularly if it&#39;s cheese, or better yet, peanut butter sandwiches! Oh yum!!! I LOVE peanut butter sandwiches. I didn&#39;t even KNOW I liked peanut butter sandwiches until one of the nice employees at the shelter shared hers with me. I may do about anything for a peanut butter sandwich! I take treats gently, and am said to have the most adorable under bite that really shows when I&#39;m taking treats.<br/><br/>Some folks say I have sad puppy dog eyes that make it really hard not to spoil me and be nice to me. I know my eyes look sad, and I like that it works to my advantage with getting more treats and attention, but I&#39;m not really sad. But I AM really ready for you to take me home so that I can finally have a home of my own and a place to feel safe. So look into my eyes-am I the perfect girl for you?

      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hello! My name is Carson! Despite being a senior, I still love to play like a young dog. My favorite thing to do is play fetch with a tennis ball or a squeaky toy. When I&#39;m done playing, I just want to cuddle and try to lay on your lap. If I can&#39;t do that, I&#39;ll give you puppy eyes until I get ear scratches. I hope you don&#39;t mind a 92-pound lap dog! I&#39;m a very gentle guy and I get along well with people, including older children. I am also house trained and know a few tricks like come, sit, and shake. If you have other dogs, I would like to meet them! Come meet me at Zona Rosa! My adoption fee includes my neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test, microchip, and of course me! I can&#39;t wait to see you!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Need a great friend in your life? If so, meet me, Phoebe! I am a blonde 7-year-old lab mix gal who weighs 56 lbs. I was surrendered to the shelter when my previous family got divorced. I don&#39;t really know what that means, but I guess it means that I lost my family and home. I had lived in my previous home for more than 6 years after coming from a friend of the family, but now I need a true forever home. <br/><br/>In my previous home, I lived both indoors and outdoors, and I was left alone for 14-15 hours. I was either free in the home or in my dog run. I would like a home where I&#39;m not left alone for so long. I am a good girl, but 14-15 hours is too long to hold it. I am reported to be housetrained, though. <br/><br/>When I warm up, I really like to play. I like to jump and wrestle and play &quot;keep away.&quot; And I LOVE squeaky toys, especially squeaky balls! I also walk very nicely on the leash, and I know the commands &quot;sit&quot; and &quot;stay.&quot; Oh, and I LOVE treats. I bet I could learn a lot of new things with the help of treats! I am able to jump a 3-foot fence, but I haven&#39;t actually chosen to do that in a really long time. <br/><br/>Please come meet me at KCPP. I&#39;ll be there for you...waiting to meet you.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. The saffron crocus is a lovely flower, but from the outside it doesn&#39;t appear to be exceptional. It is only when given time and patient care that it blooms to reveal the most valuable spice in the world - saffron. <br/><br/><br/>This Saffron is no different. For the sensitive minded, her delicate kisses and and gentle snuggles provide affection without being overwhelming. For the practical minded, her knowledge of sit, shake, down, and kennel make her a wonderful and well-behaved companion in the home. She generally participates in low-key activities such as napping, playing with balls and stuffed toys, and taking leisurely walks but enjoys brief bursts of chase or fetching games as well. <br/><br/><br/><br/>Saffron is currently looking for a home that is prepared to give her time to bloom into the most precious of dogs. She comes with 30 days of pet insurance, spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and prepared to win your heart.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Washed-up athlete, I think not! Doodles is one of those lucky middle age athletes who is still right in the midst of the competition and is very playful. She tries to get into her competitor&#39;s head by talking to them the whole time she plays fetch with a tennis ball or tug-a-war with a rope, although off the court she is humble, loving, and sweet. Doodles is an outgoing girl who has an adoring fan club because every person that walks by she thinks is her best friend! She loves to cuddle up in your lap, and gives lots of kisses. She already knows sit and has improved her manners while walking politely on the leash because she is so treat motivated which means she is up for learning more and keeping her mind sharp. Doodles has been selective while participating in shelter playgroups with other dogs. If you have any doggie friends in your life please be sure to bring them with you and staff will set up a meet to make sure everyone gets along! Adoption price includes current vaccinations, microchip, spay, 30 days of pet insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Hi! I&#39;m Reed and I am in need of some fun and adventure in my life. I am a playful, 1 1/2 yr old, Pittie mix that loves life and always looking for a good time. You can pretty much always find a smile on my face and my goofy personality makes me even cuter. Not only am I tons of fun, I am smart too, I know sit, lay down and shake, not bad right? While I love life, I&#39;m not so much loving life in a shelter right now. It is taking away from all the amazing things I should be experiencing. I&#39;m not gonna lie, it has me a little stressed out and frustrated. I can get a little jumpy and anxious when you first meet me, I am just so excited about meeting new people. I appreciate the staff and volunteers for spending extra time with me. They know I am a good boy and deserve all the fun and adventure that life brings. Can I experience that with you?<br/>Reed&#39;s adoption fee includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip, 30 days of pet shelter insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love.
