Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Leroy is a 9 year old Pit mix who is such a joy to be around! He loves all people and would love nothing more than to cuddle with you. He spent 5 years in a hoarding situation, so we are carefully looking for a home that will be dedicated to loving Leroy for the rest of his life (or a foster home to help while we wait for that home)! Leroy told us what he's looking for in a foster or a forever home, so we thought we'd just let him share it in his own words! "It may sound a bit selfish on my part, but I am not a fan of other dogs or cats, I would like to shower you with attention all by myself! I would love someone that "gets" me - a dog savvy person is a must!" I even have my own Facebook page - check me out! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Leroy/264220677068110 Leroy is crate-trained and potty-trained. $225 adoption fee applies. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We do a 30-day trial adoption and if it's not a good fit during that period, we will refund 75% of the adoption fee. ***We frequently fall into spam folders, so if you haven't heard back from us in 24-48 hours, please check there***

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: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Ranger and his three siblings were left in a box in a rural area of Louisiana in a ditch. His foster family stopped when they saw a puppy on the side of the road knowing there were no houses nearby and were surprised when 3 more ran out! They were full of fleas, hungry and dirty but were full of kisses for them. They are super sweet puppies who adore the kids. All four puppies love chew toys, balls and belly rubs. They even get along well with the families big dogs and their cats . Ranger loves belly rubs! Though he can be a little timid around new people at first, once he gets to know you he's all about getting your attention!! He likes to chase after the tennis ball but hasn't quite learned the concept of fetch! He loves chew toys, crate time and kids. He is a playful happy boy, who loves to snuggle and tuck his nose in against you. Ranger does very well in car, like his siblings he is very affectionate. As with all young puppies Ranger cannot be left alone more than a few hours each day. If you are hoping to adopt please have a plan in place for midday breaks, or perhaps ask to adopt a slightly older pup if you know you will be at work all day. Puppies need careful supervision and like to chew. We ask all adopters to complete a training class with their new family member also, it's great bonding time! As a purely foster based rescue we have no central location at which you can visit our dogs, consequently we only honor meeting requests from preapproved adopters. Please fill in our online application at www.myaarf.org; as fully as you can. It won't obligate you to anything or any particular dog but gives us a great place from which to begin the matching process. Please allow 24-48 hours for a response from our busy volunteers. Adoption Fee is $400 which includes all transport, vetting (including spay/neuter at one of our approved vets) and microchipping.

      Age: Young
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Tulip is a cutie pie whose deafness doesn't slow her down. She will need to be trained to hand signals and will do great so long as she's in your yard or on a leash. At just 8lbs she would make a great apartment snuggle companion. She can climb so a 4-6ft fence or a leash would be best. She's good with kids, cats and other dogs. Cautious when meeting new people but friendly and such a sweet girl who deserves a family of her very own. If you think that might be you please read below to see how to apply! She will arrive here in Seattle on Dec 10th and we would love for her to be in her own home by Christmas!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Yellow Labrador Retriever / Mountain Cur / Mixed (short coat). Dino will be joining us in Seattle on Dec 10th from Louisiana. He is a sweet Yellow Lab/ Mountain Cur mix who weighs in around 35bs. He is neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and ready to have a family of his own, hopefully in time for the holidays! He's under a year old, 8-9 months and is cautious when meeting new people. He's good with adults once he gets to know you, hasn't been around kids and cats yet but we are hoping to see how he does with them before he travels north. Dino is a mellow guy with a fairly low energy range. He does enjoy jumping up to greet you and will need to complete some basic training. He is a fan of shredding his blankets too... All in all he's a good boy who deserves a family to love and snuggle with. Might that be you??

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Lucy is a super smart, friendly Lab/Catahoula mix (best guess) rescued from Louisiana. She weighs around 50lbs and has a beautiful spotted leopard coat. She is a super sweet girl who knows how to sit, lay down, fetch and drop it, she adores playing fetch with the ball. She loves children and after some exercise to get the wiggles out is happy to lay and snuggle with her people. Lucy is practicing her leash manners and working on how to say hello to other dogs when out walking but gets along well with the other dog in her current home and gets quite upset when folks walk past whilst on a walk without noticing how cute she is and stopping to say hello! Around 3yrs old, Cookie is house and crate trained. Spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She has some manners to learn (specifically to address her prey drive Aarf is willing to help with the cost of training) and is a funny, adorable girl who just loves to be loved. She responds well to correction and really wants to please, with a little patience / training she will thrive. Lucy is definitely a project dog who needs an owner with the time, love and patience to persist in her training and allow her to learn boundaries. Catahoulas are fiercely loyal and protective of their pack and need time and space to get used to strangers. Lucy needs an active owner willing to work with us and to commit to keeping her for the duration. We suggest slightly older children just because of her size and boisterous nature but she has been homed with younger kids and loves her cuddles. We will take any situation into consideration. If you think she might want to come and live with you please see instructions below and fill in our online application asap. As a purely foster based rescue we have no central location at which you can visit our dogs, consequently we only honor meeting requests from preapproved adopters.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Honey Bear is an incredibly sweet, playful and charismatic pit bull. She is approximately 11-12 yrs old. She would do great in a house or condo as she has a low energy level and would be fine with a short walk once a day or every other. She has arthritis in her back legs and is on medication. She is dog selective and sometimes reactive towards other dogs on walks. Honey Bear thoroughly enjoys cuddle with her foster family. Honey Bear is 100% kennel trained for when her foster family is at work and does not show any signs of separation anxiety. Honey Bear is also potty trained, but due to her age, she does need to go out more often. When you tell her it's time to 'Go' she gets very excited. Honey Bear knows sit and stay. She is looking forward to playing in a yard of her own. She is full of love and has so much joy to share! Honey Bear is too interested in cats though, so no cats please! ** CONTACT INFO@MYAARF.ORG DIRECTLY IF INTERESTED - THE "ADOPT ME" EMAIL LINK IS BROKEN AND WE ARE NOT RECEIVING THE MESSAGES ** If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! $225 adoption fee applies.
