Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Roxie Female American Staffordshire mix 2 yrs old 45 lbs Roxie is a sweet American Staffordshire mix who was found starving on the streets. Thanks to some residents of a nursing home, she was fed, but that was not a situation that could continue. After being passed along to a number of people who wanted to help but were not able to keep her, she entered foster care with her current caretakers. Roxie is good with dogs of all ages and sizes and shares her foster home with 5 other dogs ranging from young to 13 yrs old and weighing in at 15 lbs to 70 lbs. Roxie even meets the further challenge of living with one of the small dogs who is blind and has spinal injuries. However, she is exuberant and strong, even for the pint-sized package that she is. Therefore, we would recommend a home with older children, only because she might unintentionally knock a smaller child down in greeting them. Roxie has lots of energy and would be a great playmate for a medium to large dog, and she would be a great jogging partner. She has been curious and accepting of the cat in her foster home, who will nuzzle Roxie as she passes by. Roxie's foster parents supervise such encounters, and would recommend same for others at this point. Roxie is house trained and is learning basic obedience. Roxie is current on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and has tested heartworm negative. She is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. If you are interested in Roxie, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish). **Local adoptions preferred (within 1-2 hrs of the Greater New Orleans area), but please contact us if you live outside of this area, as exceptions are sometimes made on an individual basis depending on the dog or circumstances. We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.

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.

    • Beagle Dog For Adoption in Kenner, LA

      Evan

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Kenner, LA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Evan is a sweet beagle boy that came to us from the local shelter when he was left there by his owner who said he wasn't breathing right. After some veterinary followup, it was found that Evan has chronic bronchitis due to unknown causes. He also requires prescription food for his urinary tract and medication for his lungs to prevent his cough from interfering with his daily doggy activities. Evan's prescription diet is not much more expensive than many of the better quality diets that dogs owners are choosing for the pets nowadays, anyway. In cases like these, quality of life is of utmost consideration, but we decided against euthanasia, because Evan is still a relatively young fellow and he is very happy, playing with his foster siblings and engaging in generally beagle adorableness. Without being told, no one would know that he eats special food or has any type of medical condition. Adoption includes vetcheck, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. Current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. If you are interested in sweet Evan, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish). **Local adoptions preferred (within 1-2 hrs of the Greater New Orleans area), but please contact us if you live outside of this area, as exceptions are sometimes made on an individual basis depending on the dog or circumstances.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Kenner, LA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Where's Waldo? Waiting for you. This sweet pup is available for adoption and looking for a home to call his forever. Waldo is a young male Heeler mix who is good with dogs (big and small) and indifferent towards cats. He knows basic commands: "sit," "down," and "heel." He walks great on a leash and is house and crate trained. Pssst....he has THE most fabulous ears, to boot. Waldo is almost a year old, but is a nice balance of young pup energy with the ability to be a snuggler. Most of the time, he's just lounging around with his foster siblings or snuggling with his foster dad, but he will play with the other dogs in his foster home. Waldo is ok with older kids/teenagers and even infants, but has a fearful reaction to toddlers. Unfortunately, based on the fact that he was originally found abandoned in a home surviving on dirty diapers, we suspect that a young child or children were allowed to mistreat him, even if unintentionally. For this reason, we are recommending a home with older children or adults only. Waldo is current on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped, and has tested heartworm negative. If you are interested in Waldo, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish). ** Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat).

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Rosalie is an 18 mos old staffy mix surrendered by her owner who no longer wanted her. She was terrified initially but has warmed up beautifully. We know Rosalie had a rough past as she was used only as a breeder dog, but she has a heart of gold.

Rosalie will run and play outside and then she will come inside and relax with the family. She is the best of both worlds.

      Bane

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Kenner, LA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Bane is a 5 mos old staffordshire terrier mix puppy who was original seized in a cruelty case. He was very underweight but has made up for missed meals over the past 2 months. He is healthy and has been happy since day one. He is a typically kissy terrier who is silly and funny, yet can be laid back at times, too. He sits on command when his wigglebutt will allow him. He is crate-trained and housebroken and likes to play with other dogs, so another tolerant and gently playful pup would be a great match for him. Bane is respectful of dogs who correct him, but responds to the energy level of other dogs. High-energy, hyperactive dogs seem to cause Bane some stress. Bane is interested in cats, but has not been aggressive. He actually seems scared of them, and would probably be more comfortable in a home without cats. Otherwise, Bane is a typical puppy who explores his environment and is quick to put object in his mouth (think shoes and such) but will readily trade for an appropriate toy. He is very smart and we expect a fine companion as he matures. This little fellow currently weighs in at 26 lbs and will likely max out at 40-50 lbs at adulthood. Current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative. *Before applying for a puppy under 6 months old, please note that we are looking for homes where someone is home frequently, or for those applicants who work 8 hr work days, we ask that you have made arrangements for someone to come home at least once during the day to allow the dog to go out for a potty break. Puppies go through multiple teething stages during their first year. Providing your puppy with appropriate toys specially designed for teething puppies can prevent damage to belongings, but more importantly, prevent your dog from choking or suffering a dangerous intestinal obstruction. During the earlier stages, crate him or her when you can't directly supervise him. *Local adoptions (New Orleans and surrounding parishes) preferred. We do NOT ship animals If you are interested, please fill out an Dog Adoption Application Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).

      Madeline

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Bulldog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Kenner, LA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / English Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Madeline Female American Staffordshire Terrier 3 yrs old; 45 lbs This pint-sized girl was surrendered to the shelter with her previous owner citing 'works too much,' but it was later revealed that Madeline and the other dogs she was turned in with had been living on a tether. Madeline has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite with her undeniably cute underbite and soulfully sweet eyes. Madeline was a tiny 45 lbs when she arrived, which was fortunate since she had never learned how to walk on a leash and was overwhelmed by the noise and activity of shelter life. It appears as if she had very little appropriate human family interaction, yet she was lovable towards people and did fine with dogs and cats in the shelter. Madeline was in desperate need of an adoptive or foster home to give her the chance to live in an environment filled with human compassion and and nurturing companionship so that she could develop her self-confidence. Otherwise, she was not going to make it out of the shelter. However, Madeline soon gained another fan. The volunteer shelter photographer took some time after a shelter photo session to study her subject. No longer restrained at the end of ropes or chains, Madeline seemed to look hopefully beyond the chain link fencing of her shelter home, as her new friend sat patiently next to her in the shelter play yard. Ashley spends two Saturdays a month sharing the gift of her photography with the shelter dogs and seemingly capturing the very essence of their spirit in hopes of revealing them to the world. But, as she peered through the lens one day, it was the photographer who was captured. Unbeknownst to both of them, Ashley would soon come to play a huge part in saving Madeline's life. Unable to get Madeline off of her mind, Ashley carried her out of the shelter one day soon after, filled with hope that she could teach Madeline that good things do happen and that there was so much more to be discovered. In foster care a month after arriving at the shelter, Madeline still could not even walk on a leash and was hesitant to follow anyone for a distance. She had yet to comprehend that the limits she once knew were no longer a daily part of her life, or at all. She was still tethered in spirit. Fast-forward almost 4 months later, and Madeline now walks on a leash. She sleeps on her foster sister, Priscilla, a Weimaraner. She plays and is joyful and brings joy to those around her. Now it is time for Madeline to move onto a loving and patient home that she can call her own, filling it with delight and reward as her family witnesses her continue to blossom into the beautiful companion that she was always meant to be. If you are interested in sweet Madeline, please complete a Dog Adoption Application Madeline is current on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She has tested low heartworm positive, but can be kept on monthly heartworm preventative that is required for all dogs, anyway. Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish). **Local adoptions preferred (within 1-2 hrs of the Greater New Orleans area), but please contact us if you live outside of this area, as exceptions are sometimes made on an individual basis depending on the dog or circumstances.
