Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Evie, once a loving mama of 8 sweet pups, has matured into a gentle 4-year-old lady in love with life and in love with loving. Quite simply, she is worth her weight (50 pounds) in love. Her two favorite pastimes are generously doling out kisses and cuddling up close to her people as often as paws-ible. She never tires of either of these. Evie moves about slowly and humbly but her tail whips constantly from side to side almost doing 360 degrees before reversing again. She also has the most amazing smile or "submissive grin." For those who have never experienced this phenomenon, it's incredibly adorable. Evie smiles when her people come home. She smiles when she gets some loving and she smiles when she gets excited. Yet as sweet and smiley as she is, she is very nervous in new situations, during storms, and while traveling. Evie is not destructive or volatile, she just pants and drools until the experience ends and needs a patient family who can help her overcome or ride out these fears. Now in search of her forever home, Evie requires one with a privacy fence that is 5 feet or higher. Evie is a world class jumper but if Evie can’t see anything tempting to chase, she doesn't jump. But just imagine having this sweetheart jump up on your lap or your sofa for some snuggling and that’s another story altogether. Evie is fostered in Birmingham, AL but is willing to travel to nearby cities for her happily ever after. For more information about this special Mama Bear please contact info@forrescue.net and ask about adopting Evie and having her love you forever.

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: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Beagle (short coat). Folly has had a hard life, but she doesn't let it get her down! This 40-lb girl, who we estimate is between 6 and 8 years old, was turned in to a high-kill shelter along with her puppiesby their owner. They were living in a pen in the backyard and were turned in because they were "annoying because they kept getting out of the pen." This was not Folly's first litter, as we can tell by looking at her poor belly. She was so happy to get out of the shelter and into a foster home. She was spayed (no more puppies! Yay!) and then had an additional surgery to remove some mammary tumors, but she now has a clean bill of health. Folly is the snuggliest, most exuberant girl ever! She LOVES all people, loves food, loves blankets and couches. She is completely house-trained, surprisingly, after having been an outside dog all her life. She is currently in a foster home with 7 other dogs and does fine with them. She would rather be in a home with only one or two other dogs so she could get more of the snuggling she missed for her first years. She does well in her crate, but she doesn't need to be crated because she has never tried to chew anything that's not a dog toy. She would love to have a nice couch to lie on and a people bed to sleep in while cuddling with her favorite person. Could you be Folly's special person and make her life even better than it is now?

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Husky Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Husky / Mixed (short coat). Ivey is an 8 year old German Shepherd Husky mix. She is a sweet, calm, and gentle girl that gets along beautifully with other dogs, cats, and kids over 5 years of age. Ivey is a lazy gal that just wants a loving home. Sadly, Ivey was hit by a car years ago and was never taken to receive care for her injuries. As a result of no vet care, Ivey’s bones healed themselves resulting in a bit of a limp when she walks. She loves to walk on a leash and is completely house broken. She is very quiet and is an all around chill girl. While she gets along with everyone, she would probably be best suited for a calm home.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Vizsla (short coat). Prince Henry is a 5 month old Lab/Golden puppy with dark eyes and a gorgeous chestnut colored coat. He has 4 white paws and his tail has a little bit of white on the very tip. He looks like a teddy bear in that cute face. He is adorable!! He’s all puppy! He loves to play with toys, chew on his chewy treats, romp around with his brother, play outside and go for walks. He sleeps well in his crate at night or when he is left alone for a few hours. He likes to let you know you are leaving him there for a couple of minutes, then he’s out like a light. Play hard….sleep hard!! He is a friendly and affectionate puppy but he doesn’t really like to curl up and snuggle on your lap for long. He’s just too busy!! Henry will make a great pet for anyone. We recommend puppy training for him so he can grow up to be a perfect gentleman. Prince Henry is neutered, current on vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and current on preventatives. He is located in Huntsville, AL, but is available in your area. Fill out a non binding application for this sweet boy by clicking here: http://forrescue.net/dog-application/

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). We think we may have missnamed Ms Cierra. Thumper may have fit better (tail is always wagging)! Maybe Shadow, she loves to be as close to you as possible! Mime? She doesn't talk ("bark"). Piglet since she will eat everything in her bowl? Bud? She wants to be fiends with the cats and absolutely loves children! Well, whatever her name could have been, she will always be a loving, cuddly, sweet, beautiful girl! She is 3yrs old, we think she is a lab/bully breed mix who has all her shots, is heartworm and flea free, and has been microchipped in case she should somehow misplace you (not likely) and you can find your way back to her. Cierra is fostered in Huntsville, al. If you are interested email info@forrescue.net for more information.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Bruno! Much like his name, he is BIG and Strong! But he also has a soft side, and he is ready to find his forever family to share it with. Bruno spent most of his life on a chain and neglected. He now craves attention. He gets so excited when he sees his favorite person that he hops about 3 feet off the ground. For this reason, he needs a TALL fence (about 6 ft). He is good with female dogs, and not great with cats. He LOVES his favorite chair, despite it being well used before he ever got it. He thinks he is the king of the world snuggled in at night in that chair. He is an awesome judge of character with a big personality. He has an intense fear of a hose pipe and does not like to be sprayed with water. He has been fostered in a kennel environment and will need some work with house training. But he is a smart boy and will learn quick. Bruno would do best with a loving and kind experienced owner. He is neutered, heartworm negative and up to date on vaccines.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Beagle (short coat). ​Pixie is a sweet, spunky old lady. She is very obedient and so cheerful. She has a cataract in one eye.

She has been treated for heartworm, we will be testing her in the future to confirm she's negative. She is currently taking trifexis (heartworm prevention). She is house broken and oh so sweet.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi! My name is Mitzi. I love to run and chase birds and squirrels. My foster mom calls me a gazelle because of the way I run and jump. I’m crate trained, potty trained and up to date on my all my shots and flea and heartworm prevention meds. I love to snuggle and I am very sweet, but I do like to be boss of the pack. I do better with older children and would definitely need a fenced yard. I get very excited when it is eating time! My foster mom said I talk and dance when it’s time to eat. She’s always laughing at me. If you are interested in making me your new family member, please go to forrescue.net and fill out an application. I am fostered in Hazel Green, Alabama.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Lily has had a rough go of events. She was at the shelter with severe lick wounds on her front and back paws. After several rounds of medicine and physical therapy, xrays were done, and her front foot was too damaged for repair, and she ended up losing her front leg. Luckily, the back leg is healing nicely. Lily has not let that affect her personality or spirit. She loves to go on walks, playing tug-a-war, and cuddling on the couch. She is truly an inspiration to anyone that has to overcome challenges. She must be an only dog. Lily does get along great with her human family, ignores cats, is crated trained, and house broken. She is truly a great girl, with a low to medium energy level, and a beautiful smile!!
