Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Here's an update from Steffi's foster momma: Do you have a large breed male family dog that needs a playmate to expend his energy? Meet Steffi! Steffi is approximately two and a half years old, who loves to play with her canine friends. When she is not playing, Steffi loves to lounge on the couch and watch her favorite TV shows. She is housebroken, crate and doggy door trained, and knows basic commands. As Steffi is a Pitbull mix, she needs to be in a family that has extensive experience with the breed. In addition, due to Steffi’s energy level, she will do best in a family with no children. She is very motivated by treats, so training is pretty easy! Steffi would do best in a home where owners are familiar with the breed:) If you are interested in meeting Steffi, please complete the on-line application at www.helpadogsmile.org and her foster momma will follow-up with you to determine compatibility. Her adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses of the rescue. Thank you!

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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Cairn Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 175.00. Hi meet Prescott. He is a 8-months-old, 7-pound white chihuahua puppy with a bit of terrier in him. He has the cutest bearded face and a tiny spot on his back in light tan. Prescott is an outgoing puppy who loves to play with other dogs. He is respectful of older dogs but does want to play with them. He is cautious around bigger dogs but he does warm up to them over time. Prescott is kennel and dog door trained. He does get distracted playing with other dogs outside and can "forget" he has business to do out there. So, he still needs some guidance. Prescott is a people person dog, he likes all folks from tiny tots to adults. Prescott is also working on his commands. He knows stay, stop and he comes a running when called. He would love to sit on your lap and snuggle with you as well. Prescott is not disposable for any reason...moving, divorce, marriage, kids, whatever. You must be able to commit to him as a family member for the rest of his life, which could easily be 12-15 years. He is up to date on shots and micro chipped. If you are interested in making Prescott a permanent member of your family, please fill out our online application: http://www.helpadogsmile.org/adopt/application/. Prescott's adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses of the rescue. Thank you for thinking rescue. Phoenix metro adoptions only.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Adoption Fee: 175. Petey Pup was headed to the Pound when our rescue angel stepped in and saved him... Such a little fellow, just about two years old and weighing in under 6 lbs ! Did I say a tiny tot?? Yes he is. Petey Pup is housetrained, crate trained and walks well on a leash (but wouldn't you love to carry him everywhere? He's a total cuddle-bug ). Petey Pup did well at the vet when he got his vaccinations and he has been neutered. If you can commit to providing him with a forever home, please complete our online application and his foster mom will contact you. Thank you for supporting the rescue of this little one! Due to his tiny size, we are looking for a home without small children. He would do well alone or possibly with another small dog as a playmate. Local Phoenix area adoptions please. His adoption fee of $175 includes all medical services as well as a microchip!

      Breed: Pomeranian-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Spaniel / Mixed (long coat). Adoption Fee: 175. We have an adorable Pom mix looking for his forever home!! McDonald, "Micky D", is such a gentleman who just wants to sit by your side or cuddle on your lap! At 9 years old, he is considered a 'senior'. As a senior, MickyD has the beginning of cataracts and some arthritis in his front legs, none of which seem to slow him down or inhibit him from socializing. As with most small, senior dogs, he should be limited to his time on furniture and not allowed to jump off of anything to avoid injury due to his arthritis. This little fluffball weighs about 11 pounds and is so deserving of a forever home! He has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and is ready to go! Remember, this breed does require regular brushing and grooming to stay in tip-top shape. He loves everyone and other doggies, too. If you would like to add this sweet and gentle charmer to your home, please complete an online application at www.helpadogsmile.org and his foster mom will contact you.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Basenji / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 175. Little GUNNER is a spunky guy who was found by a good samaritan huddled in a corner of a shopping plaza in the hot Phoenix sun! When no owner could be found, we welcomed him into our Rescue and provided him a safe, warm bed with lots of good food and other doggies and kitties to play with. And he loves to play, play, play! Although he was a bit shy at first, he has learned to trust, warms up quickly and loves to give big kisses! We think he may have some Basenji in him as he is quite the yodeler and will gladly sing along with our volunteers! He also has the cutest curly tail. GUNNER has been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated and he is crate and housetrained to use a doggy door. This little guy is about a year old and would love to find his forever home with someone who will treasure him for many, many years. He would love daily walks, a yard to run in and another furry companion to play with in his forever home. If you would like to make a difference in Gunner's life and provide him with that forever home, please complete an application at www.helpadogsmile.org and his foster mom will contact you. His adoption fee helps with medical expenses of the rescue. Thank you. Woof Woof!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Adoption Fee: 175.00. What a SUPER SENIOR. Hi, my name is Little LIDO and I am one cute, tiny and very lucky little fellow! I was rescued from the middle of the road in downtown Phoenix....almost three years ago! Yes, cars passed me by but I was lucky to catch the eye of a wonderful Rescue lady and was rushed to safety. Whew, that was close! I am a little bit of a dog just waiting for my own lap to snuggle into. I have been neutered, microchipped , vaccinated and just had a 'doggy dental'. 100% potty-trained, too! I am only 6 lbs with a calm, senior attitude, a true 'pocket pup'. Although I am nearly 12 years old, I recently went on a cool road trip with my foster mom and got to see the ocean! If you would like to provide me with additional vacation experiences, my foster mom says she might let me find a forever home... If not, she is happy giving me love for my remaining years. That is what is so cool about Rescue, they really do love you forever!! Adoption fee helps the Rescue with medical costs of our dogs. Thank you!
