Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Please contact Family Dog Shelter for more information about this pet. Meet Joker! The star player of Family Dog Rescue! Joker is an American Bulldog mix. He weighs about 65-70 pounds and is around 2 years old. Joker is truly a wonderful dog. He would make a great companion for an active individual, couple, or family. Joker is adventurous, playful, curious and outgoing. Not only that, but he is super treat motivated and LOVES to learn! He is super smart, and picks up commands very quickly. He has already mastered basic commands, including sit, down, stay, and shake! Joker does GREAT with dogs! He is a good candidate for doggy daycare, pack walks, play groups, and off-leash areas. Here's what one of our volunteers has to say about Joker: "Joker is one of the best dogs I've ever met! This big goofy guy is a total lovebug, and will never cease to make you smile. He is extremely people oriented, and wants to be a part of everything you do. He is happy going for hikes and runs, but also would love to hang on the couch and watch Netflix with you. When you first meet him, he is always super happy, and can barely contain his excitement, and so he can be a bit over-eager at times. He is extremely food motivated, and is super smart, figuring out commands and puzzle toys very quickly. With some love, structure, and training, Joker will make an amazing companion." Joker is fully vetted and ready to go home. He is even house-broken! If you'd like to meet this great guy please fill out an adoption application or send us an email!

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.

    • Chiko - Chihuahua Dog For Adoption

      Date listed: 12/17/2016

      Chihuahua Dog For Adoption in San Francisco, CA

      Chiko

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: San Francisco, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Chiko is a sweet little dog with a big story to tell. He is about 2 years old and weighs about 12 pounds. Here is what his foster mom says about him- Chiko was surrendered by his previous family a few days before the Fourth of July in Martinez, California. Sadly, Chiko had been attacked by another animal and a very large gash was torn into the side of his body and his family could not afford to take care of the injuries that he had sustained. He was terrified and in pain, and was at risk for euthanasia. Concerned rescuers told his story, and that’s when Family Dog Rescue stepped in. Chiko has been healing in the home of a foster family, who has also been working with him on some of his fear issues. Love really can heal many things! At this point, Chiko is a very loving little dog who absolutely adores laps, loves getting kisses (and will even share a few as well!), and loves to burrow under blankets and snuggle in bed at night. He is still frightened around other dogs, and will growl at them if they approach him. He also doesn’t like other humans to pet him when he is comfortable on the lap or in the arms of a human already. Chiko has done very well with careful, respectful children, though, sleeping in bed with his favorite 14 year old boy and cuddling on the couch with his loving 10 year old boy, and has adapted to some degree to having other dogs around, but will probably be happiest in a home in which he’s the only dog, and with adults and children who respect that he still has some fears about being petted by one person while being held by another. Please visit our website and submit an adoption application if you’d like to meet Chiko!

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: San Francisco, CA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Meet Montana! This beautiful, purebred German Shepherd is a total sweetheart. She is weighs about 4o lbs and is 2 years old. So far she has shown herself to be super affectionate and loving! We don't know much about her past, but Montana is clearly afraid of other dogs and is under-socialized. She tends to bark and lunge at other dogs when on leash, but is happy to meet them off leash. Once she knows the other dog is "safe" she is happy to socialize and interact. Dog parks are not a good option for her at this time. Montana has quickly adjusted to her new surroundings and is coming out of her shell more and more each day. Montana should be the only dog in the household but she would love to live with kids! Due to her timid nature an experienced adopter in a quieter neighborhood would be ideal for her. Please submit an adoption application if you'd like to meet her!

Pasta has had a very rough start in life. She was found as a stray with severe dental issues and had to have intensive surgery to fix her teeth and an old hernia. She is all patched up and healthy now, and is ready to find a loving forever home. Pasta has one of the biggest small-dog personalities we have ever come across. She is very loyal and loving once she trusts you, and has a very spunky side that makes her very special. She is very lovable, and has become a favorite of many here in our shelter. Pasta hasn't figured out that dogs are her friends, and would do best as the only dog in the home. If you would like to meet Pasta please visit our main page and fill out an adoption application!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Meet Rex! This handsome guy was transferred to our rescue from the city shelter in San Francisco where he was extremely shut down and facing euthanasia. Once he was outside of the shelter Rex's personality changed...he opened up to us and we saw what a sweet and loving soul he really is. Rex was found as a stray in San Francisco so we don't know too much about his history. He is about 2 years old, neutered, up to date on his shots, and healthy as can be. He weighs about 60 pounds and is full grown. Rex does well with other dogs, kids (10+), and people of all ages. He is definitely a shy dog and needs an experienced adopter who can help show him the world isn't as scary as he thinks! Rex is currently living in foster care and doing great! He is house-broken and knows basic commands. He has a wonderful temperament and will make for a great companion. To meet this beautiful blue-nose please fill out an adoption application on our website!

This gorgeous 2 year old, 15 lb terrier mix came in recently with her family of 5 puppies. With 4 puppies of her own, she even had it in her heart to accept and “foster” an extra puppy! She is still adjusting to her surroundings, but we know she is soon to become a more confident dog. At the moment, she can be very timid around new people or new situations, but once she warms up, she is affectionate, loving, and even playful. She will need a patient, understanding adopter who is willing to work with her to bring her out of her shell and gently show her that the world isn’t as scary as it seems!
