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.

      Bino & Ernie...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Tucson, AZ
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Bambino "Bino" was born on January 13, 2014. I have had Bino in my home since he was 8 weeks old. He's slender and tall, mostly white with darker brown spots. He's neutered and microchipped with Smiling Dog Rescue and had all of his initial distemper shots, been dewormed and had his first rabies vaccine in 2015 under the care of Dr. Nelson at the local Pet Doctor Veterinarian Office in Tucson, AZ. He is due for a booster shot and rabies shot. He is house trained and mainly an inside dog. He is not used to being outside in the elements and is also crate trained. Bino is friendly and warms up quickly with all people, including children. Bino loves to play fetch with tennis balls and is a great running/jogging partner both on foot and by being lead next to a bicycle. Bino's mother pup is a short and stout Staffordshire Terrier and his father pup is a larger, stout red nose Pit Bull Terrier. Bino has lived with his brother pup Ernie (same litter/same age) since I adopted him and mother pup Chiquita, in my home. Bino is not oriented with dog parks or dogs outside of two strays I'd fostered and found homes for within the last two years. "Ernie" was also born on January 13, 2014. I have also had Ernie in my home since he was 8 weeks old. He's slender and tall and mostly brown in color with some white patches of hair. He too is neutered and microchipped with Smiling Dog Rescue and had all of his initial distemper shots, been dewormed and had his first rabies vaccine in 2015 under the care of Dr. Nelson at the local Pet Doctor Veterinarian Office in Tucson, AZ. He too is due for a booster shot and rabies vaccine. He is also house trained and mainly an inside dog. He is not used to being outside in the elements and is also crate trained. Ernie is friendly and warms up to people quickly, including children. Ernie knows how to chase a toy or ball while playing fetch but won't always return the object. Ernie is also a great running/jogging partner both on foot and by being lead next to a bicycle. His favorite activity is running next to a bicycle. I've always let Ernie lead me while on a bicycle and set his own pace. Ernie has the same mother and father pups as Bino. Ernie has lived with his brother Bino and his Mother in my home since I adopted him. Both Bino and Ernie are healthy and active pups and need to be in the same home together. They are both house broken, great with kids and walk well on a leash! They are used to being out for walks or runs at least 2-3 times a week. They have been on a sensitive stomach dry food diet for some time now and only eat canned dog food occassionally. The preference for dry food is Purina One Salmon for Sensitive Stomach. They also love the Kirkland brand milk bones from Costco with their dry food. To meet these Handsome Sweetie Pies please call SDR at 520-977-8000 or fill out an adoption application at smilingdogrescue.com
