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 does need to be the only pet. 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. $150 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.

      Age: Young
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Gidget is a cutie pie! This petite lady was rescued from a high kill shelter in Louisiana and will be arriving in Seattle on January 15th. She likes her toys and chewy treats and loves to be close to her humans. She sleeps well in a bed as well as a crate and has shown no dislikes. She steals all the kitty toys and dog toys and puts them up on the couch so the smaller pup in her foster home can't get to them, clever girl! She also steals all the treats, lol. She does dig in the yard if left alone in the yard and will find a way out to search for her humans but she doesn't run off. Wouldn't you? She happily cohabits with 5 cats and a little dog. Over the holiday season she enjoyed stealing the ornaments off the tree! Having never been taught she is still very much a puppy and will need the supervision and training expected. She a quiet sweet little girl who just wants to be in your lap though she will play and loves other dogs. She is scared of younger boys/ male teenagers specifically and would therefore be best places in a home with out them. If you think you have the patience and time for training and might be the perfect forever home for Gidget please let us know, we would love to hear from you.

      Breed: Italian Greyhuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      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. This lovely girl will follow you from room to room and wants nothing more than be next to her people. She does hate the rain so will need a rain jacket for outdoor adventures. 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!

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: French Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). Murphy is a sweet and gentle boy who loves nothing more than to cuddle on the couch with you, or snooze on the bed next to you. He is very well behaved in the house and is receptive to training. Murphy is wary of strangers and will growl at New people. His foster home has been working to introduce him to new people in a positive light. His ideal home would be a confident owner willing to continue to work with him on his confidence. Because he is unsure of new people, we are looking for a calm, no kid household. Murphy is picky about his dog friends.. He gets along great with one female dog in the house, but is not fond of the other female or the males. He would be fine being an only dog, or maybe a mellow or happy go lucky female dog companion. Murphy wants to please and is a wonderful dog. Give him the chance to get to know you and you will not be disappointed!

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Lizzy is a sweet little girl with a big smile. She will arrive in Seattle on 2/12/17. She is house and kennel trained and vocalizes when she needs to go out. Lizzy will need to continue in basic obedience training but does well on a leash and comes when called. Lizzy is 10lbs of boss around the house who loves her fur friends. She loves to be outside when the weather is nice but could use a cost when it's cold and rainy. Lizzy is shy when she first meets new people but quickly warms up. Once she has decided it's play time don't be surprised if she jumps on your feet to get you to play with her or will gladly curl up in you lap.

      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Terrier / Mixed (long coat). Posey loves her ball! Her ideal home would be an active family who enjoys outdoor activities and enjoys playing with their animals. She would love to have a ball thrown for her 24/7....otherwise she will carry it around to remind you that it's playtime. She is fully housebroken, can be left alone uncrated but really wants a buddy to spend her time with....person or dog or playful cat. She loves to ride on a boat, loves to stand in the front while the wind blows in her face! loves to run and play in the water and loves to fetch in the water....then ROOOOLLL in the sand. The sand falls off fairly quickly despite her long fur. When she plays hard....she sleeps hard. She's a wonderful dog! She prefers to sleep in someone's room in a soft dog bed on the floor. As soon as you wake up...she comes to tell you good morning. She is very affectionate, sits for treats. Loves her people... but loves her ball MORE :D 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.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Mack is a young energetic german shepherd mix with tons of love to share. He is totally crate trained and won’t potty in his kennel even when left for long periods. He handles well on a leash and does exceptionally well on car rides. He hasn't quite figured out how to get in vehicles but once he is in the truck he's fine. He is mostly potty trained but will need to perfect this skill in a new environment. He is a friendly pup who plays well with other dogs. He is working on learning to sit and doing great so far! His foster Dad taught him to stay off the and to lay down while folks are eating. He’s a quick learner and very eager to please- tons of potential for further training! He is super responsive to correction, If u snap ur fingers and tell him no he understands and will stop whatever he's NOT supposed to be doing. He does not like cats. He will chase them. He LOVES hugs and affection. He is easy to bathe but sheds a fair amount as you would expect a shepherd mix to. He's good with sharing food and water with other large dogsand has been fostered alongside a Rottweiler mix and a Pitbull. He is still a puppy and pretty rambunctious in his playing so will need to be watched around smaller dogs- he would never intentionally hurt one but could be a bt overwhelming for a smaller friend. He is still very much a puppy who hasn’t been taught all his manners and is still an avid chewer so will need plenty of chew toys and supervision! Mack is a loving dog who hasn’t been around children much but we believe will do great with them though he will need to learn the meaning of personal space. If Mack sounds like he might be the perfect pup for you please read on for info on how to apply: 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: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Rosie is a fun loving, sweet girl looking for her forever home. She had a bit of a rough start, but she doesn't let that get her down. Here is Rosie's story: Rosie was dumped out of a car in front of a stranger's house. Luckily for her, someone saw this happen and took her in. After only a few minutes with her, it was evident that she was blind. Also underweight and covered in scars, we can only assume she has had a rough go at life so far. We took her to the vet and it was determined that Rosie's blindness was caused by diabetes. Because of her diabetes, she will require insulin twice a day and will never regain her sight. But don't think that this is going to slow her down!! Rosie loves everyone she meets!! She is extremely affectionate with people and with proper introduction has done great with other dogs. She is very mellow at home and wants to be around people all the time. Playing with the water hose outside, catching water is one of her favorite things to do. She enjoys going on walks and loves a good game is tug of war. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. $150 adoption fee applies. If it is not a good fit during the first 30 day, we will refund 75% of the adoption fee. ** We frequently get blocked by spam filters so if you haven't heard back from us, please check your spam folder. **

      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.

      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.
