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 older children. She is very motivated by treats, so training is pretty easy! 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.

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog-Unknown Mix

      Location: CHANDLER, AZ
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Olani is a very sweet 1.5 year old female that appears to be a cattledog with maybe some boxer or catahoula mixed in. She loves loves loves all people and is crate trained and uses a dog door without fail! She loves to go for walks and just trots along nicely ...I suspect that she would love an active family that would play with her in the yard and take her for long walks:) She adores children and is very gentle with them...I have yet to see her jump. She would make a great only dog as she is far more interested in people than other dogs:) She loves riding in the car and is the perfect passenger.....just lays down and takes a nap! Olani has an adoption fee of $175 that covers her shots, spay, microchip plus a collar and leash:) If you are interested in meeting this treasure please go to helpadogsmile.org and fill out an application and her foster will be in touch with you!

      Age: Young
      Location: CHANDLER, AZ
      Posted Breed: Basenji / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). 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: CHANDLER, AZ
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). 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... 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! Do you have room for me? I am only 6 lbs of sweetness, a true 'pocket pup'. To learn more about me, you can call my foster mom at 602-561-9360 or complete an application at www.helpadogsmile.org. and we can schedule a time to meet. I would love to find my new forever home... I'm ready to go! Due to my tiny size, I cannot go to a home with small children. Although I am 11 years old, I still have plenty of spunk to live several more years! Adoption fee helps the Rescue with medical costs of our dogs. Thank you!

      Breed: Rat Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: CHANDLER, AZ
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (short coat). Meet Harley, the sweetest, neutered, senior Rat Terrier you would ever want to meet! Unfortunately, his owner was no longer able to care for him and asked for our help to find him a forever home. At 10 years young, this fellow is calm, housetrained, knows basic commands and has a great temperament. He is not a barker and is friendly with everyone. He is fine with the other dogs in his foster home but doesn't really play much. He enjoys just hanging out with his humans so he could be happy as an only dog, too. Do you need a walking buddy? Harley is currently on a daily walking routine and eating healthier and is now a svelte 20 pounds! Thank you to his fostermom for such commitment in helping him lose those few extra pounds! Harley loves car rides, is great on the leash, uses the doggy door or else will gently scratch at the door to go outside! This guy is a great sleeper and prefers to sleep on the bed with his humans although he may snore a bit from time to time! He has just received a clean bill of health after having a nice doggy dental and an update on vaccinations. If you are looking for a laid-back, loving, gentle companion, please consider adopting this wonderful dog. He will repay you daily with his devotion. Please complete an application at www.helpadogsmile.org and his foster mom will be in contact with you. His adoption fee helps with medical expenses of the rescue. Thank you!
