Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi everyone, my name is Posh, but I am also called Poshi Poo, Poshimus and a few other endearing nicknames! I am 2 years old, and I love life and everyone in it! I have lots of playful energy, love to go for walks, and am happy to chill out and watch some television too! I get along with some dogs, but would be best as a single dog. I love people most of all, and am happy to go wherever you want to go! She has been through formal training and would love to show you how smart she is. She walks well on a leash, and knows sit, down, heel, place, touch, and come, but is still working on 'drop it' because she loves her toys so much and hates to let them go - she will try to fit two in her mouth to avoid having to leave one behind! An active family without young children would be Posh's dream, she has an energetic spirit and loves to explore, but settles down when it is time to do so (and she's had enough exercise). She would love a family to continue her training, she is a really smart cookie! If you are interested in Posh, please click here to submit an application. Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet! Our adoption fees are as follows: Puppies and Dogs (up through 7 years old) – $250 Dogs (8 years of age or older) – $100 Kittens and Cats (up through 7 years old) – $100 Cats (8 years of age or older) – $50 Adoption Application: http://www.hopeanimals.org/#!adoption-application/c1trs

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: Great Dane-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Durham, NC
      Posted Breed: Dutch Shepherd / Great Dane / Mixed (long coat). Hi, I'm Maggie! Don’t let my adorable grey muzzle fool you, I am 5-6 year old pup with so much love and snuggles to give. I really am not sure what breed I am, possibly Dutch shepherd because my foster mom tells me my coat is the most gorgeous, soft brindle coat she has ever pet and is always rubbing my tummy, it is fantastic. My foster dad affectionately says I have big dumb ears because I just can’t help holding them up like a tepee over my head to listen to all the strange sounds of the world. When I am really focused, they cross in front of each other for supreme hearing. I love my daily walks they keep me looking fit and trim at around 60 pounds. I practice my runway walk every day and love to strut my stuff; my foster mom and dad think I am great to walk and don’t really pull. I am basically a supermodel. Let me tell you, I am very laid back. I could care less when my foster parents dress me up with hats and stack random things on my head. They think it is hilarious and adorable, I don’t really care as long as I get to snuggle with them. If you are looking for the best snuggling dog you will ever meet, don’t go looking anywhere else. I cannot get enough of snuggling up right next to you and am a perfect companion for watching Netflix or taking an afternoon nap. I don’t really remember much about growing up, but for some reason I have a few irrational fears that I don’t mind sharing with you. Loud noises can freak me out, even if I cause them because I am a bit clumsy. The scariest thing out there is ceiling fans. They do absolutely nothing to me, but I always have a wary eye on the ceiling when I see them. That’s okay though! I don’t mind them that much, I think they just surprise me. Meeting other dogs is the best thing in the world and I will flip in the air out of excitement, just to be next to them. My foster mom and dad are very patient working with me to contain my excitement, but sometimes seeing my friends (because every dog is my friend) is just too much! I get along great with all my dog friends, big or small even if my excitement bothers them at first. My foster siblings and I have always gotten along great, but they have all been adopted. I think it is my turn next, my foster mom says that my perfect human friend will come soon enough. Anyways, that is enough about me! I can’t wait to meet you and my foster parents are excited to put me in the best home they can because, well, I am just the best dog ever! You can click here to put in an application, and one of the foster coordinators will talk to you soon! Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Durham, NC
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Meet Nico! He is a 10 year old chihuahua, weighing in at a whopping 6 pounds. His favorite hobbies include going on short and slow walks, hanging out in the yard so he can lay on the deck or roll around in the leaves, taking naps in his crate, and rolling over for you to give him belly rubs. He is housebroken and gets along well with his foster siblings, who are also chihuahuas. He's a pretty low key and go-with-the-flow kind of guy, and noise isn't a problem for him since his hearing isn't so great anymore. He is so adorable and is missing some teeth, so his tongue is usually sticking out. He doesn't mind it though, since it makes it easier for him to give you licks! Nico has a problem with his heart valve, which means it doesn't close all the way, but his heart otherwise appears healthy. He is currently on two fairly inexpensive medications to keep his heart in good shape. He has a lot of love to give, and can live a very full and wonderful life!
