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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Here's Maggie! Maggie is a 5 year old chocolate colored girl with a white stripe down her nose! She was dumped out of a car and one of our volunteers took her in. Maggie is HAPPY! She loves attention, to play and this girl is strong! She is learning to walk well on her leash and is also learning basic commands. She is house trained and crate trained. She will be attending basic obedience class to help her learn. She knows sit and stay, so far!! Maggie walks very nicely onleash. She loves her food and toys but is not aggressive towards dogs or humans - she hasn't met any kitty's yet, so a home without feline friends would be best. Maggie loves to play with the laser pointer - it will keep her occupied for hours! Maggie loves everyone, but a home with older children would work out just fine! Help us show Maggie that going for a ride means fun, not fear!

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Lucky was found wandering a highway. He was covered in dirt and fleas. He met a cat and had zero interest in her and behaved like a gentleman in the tub. Lucky is a bit on the thin side, we will get him fattened up, he is tall and lanky! He's also very puppy-like and has a playful nature. He will need a lot of exercise. Lucky walks well on leash, but would benefit from obedience training to work out the kinks in his game! He is very treat motivated, so training should be a breeze!

He is an older guy who is going to make someone a tremendous companion. Nice walks in the evening, belly rubs and kisses in the afternoon! Max would need to be the only pet in the house - he wants ALL of the attention for himself.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Gabby is a little sweetheart! She loves to play with balls and people. She is good with other dogs but we haven't had a chance to introduce her to any kitties! Poor little thing was wandering in Ruskin and found herself in the shelter. She's too cute to sit in a cage, so one of our volunteers is fostering her. Gabby is now attending obedience classes and learning how to be a good girl on a leash. She will be the perfect addition to an active family.

Trixie - known as Tequila in the shelter was surrendered by her owners when they couldn't afford to provide her medical care. Trixie is very vocal and will sing for her supper! We don't know how she will do with other dogs, we are still getting to know her. Trixie has been extremely friendly since we have had her and very sweet. She will need a home that can provide her comfort and love.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mastiff / Mixed. Troy was adopted to a home 4 years ago. They had a change in their circumstances and can no longer keep him. Once an SCBR dog, always and SCBR dog, so even though we had no avaiable foster home, we took our dog back. He is in boarding right now and we hope to bust him out for the holidays! Troy never met a stranger - he loves ALL people! However, he does not like other dogs. Troy is completely house broken, knows his basic commands, loves to take walks and play! Troy particularly loves kids! Older children that can play with him are best!
