Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Sienna came into the program as a potential service dog (she can open and close drawers and doors!), but she is still a bit too active on the leash for walking in public (she loves to ride the bus though). She has graduated from Basic Obedience Class, but will need an experienced person to continue her leash training. In particular when seeing another dog on leash. Her ideal home would be an active one with a tall 6 foot fence. Her foster home has two children. One is 11 years old and the other is 15 years old. She does extremely well with both of them. dreampawsrescue@gmail.com For more information visit: dreampawsrescue.blogspot.com or email us for more information at dreampawsrescue@gmail.com

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
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: Black and Tan Coonhound
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Mishawaka, IN
      Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound (short coat). Alfie came to us with Lyme Disease and Heartworm. He is currently being treat for heartworm and will need a follow-up heartworm test in December. He loves to tree cats, opossums, and raccoons. Alfie can easily be called off by yelling his name and the word, 'TREAT'! Alfie would do best in a home with a privacy fence, someone to play fetch with, and a trip to the dog park once or twice a week. He likes to choose which dogs to interact with so a home with no other dogs or only female dogs would be best. Wherever he sleeps, he will guard the person he is sleeping with and sometimes even his own kennel.
