Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Wesley is a 2 year old Pit Bull Mix rescued from a kill shelter. He experiences some separation anxiety and would do well with a family where someone is home most of the time has lots of time to spend with him. He does great with other big dogs, but is not a fan of smaller animals. He was tested around a cat and could care less that the cat was there, but no small dogs or puppies. He is a very relaxed dog who enjoys going for car rides, loves walks, is getting used to the water at the beach and will put his feet in the small waves finally. He really is a loving dog who would do best as a single dog as he loves the attention for himself (has some possessive issues - won't let my dogs near me sometimes etc). He is kind of lazy - but he's finally doing dog things like going down on his elbows and wagging his tail letting you know he wants to play. He knows basic commands such as sit, paw, and stay. He's a love bug. Up to date on his shots, neutered and microchipped and on Heartworm preventative.

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.

      Gavin

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Gavin is a 6 month old Retriever mix. He's extremely sweet, energetic and playful and loves to play fetch. He gets along great with other dogs, though he tends to play a bit too rough with smaller dogs. He likes cats, whether they like him back or not, but has a tendency to (playfully) chase them. He walks well on a leash and is working on his house-training. He's very intelligent and learns basic commands very quickly. Gavin has Heterochromia, one eye is brown and the other is brown and blue. Although good with kids, he's completely unaware of his size and like a typical Retriever, he can be a bit mouthy, so he would do well in a home without small children. He is very energetic so he needs an active family that can take him on a daily walks/runs and exercise him thoroughly. He suffers from motion sickness when riding in cars, so he would not do well with a family that likes to travel often with their pets. He does experience some mild separation anxiety and will bark, cry and howl when left alone, especially when confined, so he would do well with a family where someone is home most of the time.

      Bleu

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Beautiful Bleu is looking for love in just the right place! With just the right people to cover with kisses and to cuddle. Brimming with affection, she lives to display it, and bristling with energy, she needs to expend it, leaping exuberantly into the air as she hits the backyard at a run. Frisky and feisty, this tomboy of a two-year-old loves playing with toys, is curious about everything happening around her, and is housetrained to use a doggy door. Found by Animal Control as a stray with a broken leg, she healed well from her surgery, and proves it by her agility and ability to effortlessly jump a four-foot fence. Obviously trained by her original owners to chase lasers, her fosters have been working to reverse her prey drive, but she remains very much an Alpha dog. For this reason, the right place for beautiful Bleu is a home with NO other animals, a backyard with a secure, 6-foot fence to keep her safely contained, and loving, but watchful adopters to keep her from other dogs and all to themselves. Bleu is under 30 pounds and would make a great companion for the right home. Bleu is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. Her adoption also includes free in home training to her new family.

      Ruby

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Pleased as punch with her slice of pumpkin pie, sweet but shy Ruby blooms in the company of other dogs. In fact, the fearful 4-year-old prefers canines to humans, having come from a rowdy home and never knowing how calmness feels. Slightly timid on walks, uneasy around too much activity, and healing well from a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in one leg, she would thrive in a house with a securely fenced yard. Eager to trust, to love and be loved, what Ruby needs now is a foster or adoptive home with another gentle dog for guidance and companionship, and people committed to patiently coaxing her from her shell and allowing this promising gem to truly shine. To encourage and compensate just such a home, CODAR will provide for the medical expenses related to Ruby's leg and for her obedience training.

    • Boxer-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Keyport, NJ, USA

      Cena

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Cena is a stunning 2 year old Boxer/Lab Mix . He was returned to the rescue when his previous family had a change in their current lifestyle. When we first met Cena he was scared, confused and sad, not understanding why he was left at this new place with all of these new people. Once we let him unwind, and spent some time with him we could tell right away that he is a sweet, friendly, and super playful boy with lots of energy. He is cautious when you first meet him, but he warms up quickly once he feels comfortable. Cena is neutered and up to date on all of his shots. He is very well trained on basic commands and is an exceptional listener and watchdog. He enjoys playing fetch, going for walks and is good on the leash...and belly rubs are always welcome. This handsome boy has a lot of energy and could use a family with a yard where he can run, play and get plenty of exercise. He is good with some dogs but needs to be introduced slowly over time. Cena would do best as the only dog in a home with an experienced dog owner. He would love a home with older kids, adults only or a very active family. He would make a great work out buddy as he loves to go on walks and hikes. He is a great dog who needs someone to love him and give him a safe home.
