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: Pug-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Redding, CA
      Posted Breed: Pug / Terrier / Mixed. Toby is listed as a courtesy post on our website. To adopt Toby, please contact his current owner/foster mom at darlenedotson@sbcglobal.net Toby was rescued from a shelter about 2 1/2 years ago. He is now approximately 3 years old according to his vet records and he's had all shots at Care Animal Hospital. Toby's human dad recently passed away and he is no longer getting the time and attention he needs and deserves. He is used to being with someone at all times and suffers from separation anxiety when I leave the house. Toby is a neutered pug/terrier and can be skittish at times though he warms to adults, dogs and cats quickly. He is slower to warm up with young children. He does not like to be confined when alone. We had a second dog when we brought Toby home and he was a perfect companion. I think the loss of his playmate and then the death of his owner is too sad. He is fed twice a day, canned food. I often leave a little dry out for snacks. he is primarily an inside fellow, who goes to the door and whines when he needs out. He needs to find a loving home like he once had. Please help. Toby is listed as a courtesy post on our website. To adopt Toby, please contact his current owner/foster mom at darlenedotson@sbcglobal.net

Angus gets along great with other dogs and livestock. He is currently living with a cat though we have observed in the past that he would do best in a cat-free home. Angus also does great around most children and adults. Angus enjoys human companionship and is loyal and affectionate with his people. He especially loves squeeky toys and is true to his breed mixes: The Australian Cattle Dog [aka Blue Heeler], or simply Cattle Dog, is a breed of herding dog originally developed in Australia for droving cattle over long distances across rough terrain. Breed temperament: Protective, Cautious, Obedient, Loyal, Energetic, Brave Wikipedia The Border Collie is a working and herding dog breed developed in the Anglo-Scottish border region for herding livestock, especially sheep. It was specifically bred for intelligence and obedience.

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Gretta is a really sweet senior gal who adores attention, is good-natured, well-mannered, friendly, happy, and smart. Gretta's eyesight and hearing have somewhat diminished since her puppy days but that doesn't get her down. Gretta is spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm negative! She gets along great with adults, children, cats, and other dogs. She loves being with her people, good scratches, relaxing, sunshine, taking naps, and going for walks. She does well on a leash and knows the "sit" command.
