Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Petey is a neutered 4 year old boy who has spent the majority of his life without a family. Surrendered at 10 months old, he has been in the shelter ever since. Sadly Petey was overlooked again and again and years had passed. During that time Petey saw his bowls, blankets and toys as his world and became obsessed with them. He became more and more withdrawn into his small, limited world and after coming to us, has finally started opening up again. He needs an adopter who understands special needs dogs, and can help him learn to live in a house again and continue on with the training we have put into him. He is completely house broken, loves his crate and can be left alone without chewing anything or having accidents. Does great on the leash and knows some commands too. He loves agility, fetch, swimming, frisbee and hiking. He needs to be the center of attention so we recommend a home with no children or other pets. He becomes very protective over his person and his home. If you would like to give this boy a home of his own, and continue to help him learn how to be a dog again, please contact us! All dogs will be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines when adopted. If you are interested in adopting this dog, please fill out an Adoption Application today. Please complete the adoption application in full; incomplete applications WILL NOT BE PROCESSED. A home visit is required prior to being approved to adopt any of our dogs. Home visits allow us to see where the dog will live, discuss any questions you have and review our adoption contract. FHRC is very serious about the homes our dogs are placed in and want to ensure they never end up homeless again. If you have any questions, please email us at thefhrcpack@gmail.com . Thank you for your interest in adopting one of our rehabilitated dogs.

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: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Buddy is a 7 year old Labrador Retriever. He’s neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped, crate trained and housebroken. He is obedience trained and walks very nicely on a leash. Don't worry about needing to crate him, he can stay loose in the house without getting himself in any trouble! Buddy is the definition of a velcro dog and prefers to be around his people as much as possible. He doesn't want to be the center of a busy household, and would do best in a home with min imal traffic because he can be protective over the ones he loves. He would prefer a home with no small kids and would like to be the only dog in the home. Buddy may be 7, but he doesn't know it. If you want a big happy puppy but want to skip the puppy stages of chewing and potty training then Buddy is the guy for you!!! All dogs will be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccines when adopted. If you are interested in adopting this dog, please fill out an Adoption Application today.
