Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Diesel is very smart, wants to please, and will be very easy to train. He walks on a leash but he needs, and is getting, more practice. He does sit when asked. Diesel does not lunge or bark at cats while in his kennel, and he has not chased poultry in his temporary home. He loves his doghouse and his bone treats. Diesel seems to be a dog that thrives on attention. If you would like to know more about him, call 304-466-1684. (courtesy post)

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.

      Posted Breed: Hound / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Can you open your heart and home to Jasmine? Her family was no longer able to care for her and for some time she relied on other folks for any care she received. She is sweet and loves affection, but is scared as she transitions to being in a different environment. We think she is a hound/boxer mix, 2 years or less, and approx 50 lbs. Please consider giving this girl the family she so deserves. If you can help, call our hotline and leave a message at 304-772-4445, or email us at mcalwv@hotmail.com

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Fred is looking for a home! This beagle mix loves attention and could benefit from exercise to lose a few pounds :) He is currently walked on a leash when he is outside of his pen during the day. He spends evenings inside, sleeping with his family. His family is older and they’re finding that they are unable to care for him as they have. Fred has been with them since they took him in as a stray when he was about one year old, around 2011. He weighs about 45 lbs and is up-to-date on vaccinations. He is good with other dogs, and has not been around cats and kids. He is house trained and crate trained. Please consider welcoming Fred into your heart and home. If you are interested, call our hotline and leave a message at 304-772-4445, or email us at mcalwv@hotmail.com
