Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ONYX (formerly Darling) is a very personable girl. Just a love, as in therapy dog material! 4 yrs. old and about 48lbs. she's a nice size. She's a calm and pretty gentle girl who enjoys getting pets and going for walks. She is strong on walks. Though she knows her heel command, she just can't resist when she see's a squirrel! She needs to work on this. She's very sweet and likes to curl up in your lap. Sometimes a little shy of people at first, a treat quickly brings her around and convinces her that you're are a good person, though she's gotten much braver in her time with us and has enjoyed meeting people out and about and at adoption events. She's been good with other dogs, can play well and enjoys saying hello while out on walks, but would prefer to be an only dog in her home. Onyx has done VERY well with kids. Though Onyx is currently fostered with a cat, she will chase and even grab a cat who is not very confident. For that reason, we'd like to find a home without cats, but if you are very experienced and have a very confident cat it is possible. Though she is a calm girl, she is also very athletic and needs her exercise, running around the yard, jogging, and playing ball all suit her fancy. She also LOVES water! Maybe she could do "dock diving" or...? Onyx is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and heartworm negative. application, home visit, adoption fee

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.

      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). LUNA is ADOPTION PENDING! Happy for you, little one. Just waiting for her spay surgery :) LUNA and her pup Lip (Eclipse) were surrendered to the shelter because their family had to move. Luna is about 35lbs. and just a year or so old. She is very friendly, smart and funny once she knows you're her friend (which doesn't take long!). She walks well on leash, rides well in the car, is not a big barker. Luna is very treat motivated which makes training fun. She can climb an x-pen fence, but is fine with a 6' fence. She's going to make someone a lovely companion. She's just the perfect size to take everywhere with you. She is very focused on her person and wants to please. She's so patient with her pup Lip and zooms around the yard playing with him :) She's quite tidy and we believe that she's housetrained though we don't know for sure yet. Luna is up to date on her vaccinations and will be spayed as soon as possible. application, home visit, adoption fee

      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). UPDATE: Lip's going on a sleepover :) Wish him luck! LIP is a typical precious 4 mo old puppy, full of energy and kisses, curious about everything. He came into the shelter with his mom Luna (also listed on our site, she's the other dog in some of his pictures) when his family moved. He's quite the momma's boy :) but is doing great without her in his foster home. He's so cute racing around with the larger dogs, trying to keep up. He's pretty fast! He's a friendly boy, and a very smart little one. He rides well in the car for such a youngster. He plays well with the other dogs in his foster home. He's respectful of the older dogs, and is happy to try to play with our large German Shepherd girl :) Currently 21lbs., we think he'll be a medium sized fellow, maybe 50-55lbs. when grown. Lip is crate trained, sleeps through the night, is doing very well on his housetraining, and is beginning walking on a leash. He also already knows his "sit" command, especially if there's a treat involved :) This boy is spunky, sensitive, energetic, and loving. He's going to make someone a wonderful companion. Remember that raising a young puppy is fun, but also alot of commitment. Lip is up to date on his vaccinations and will be neutered as soon as possible. application, home visit, adoption fee

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Note: Terry, if you are viewing Miss here, you did not leave your full phone number when you called. Please call again with your complete phone number or better yet, shoot us an email if you're still interested in Miss. ******* FOSTER(or of course FOREVER) HOME NEEDED! ******* To know MISTY is to love her. She's a sweet girl, smart and huggable. While affectionate, she's not needy. She likes to explore. Hiking is one of her favorite things to do. Her enthusiasm is infectious :) We believe that Misty is housetrained. She knows her sit command, though she prefers to get a treat to show it off. She has a very nice calm energy once she's settled in. She's had quite a tough life for the last year so she gets a bit worried when things are uncertain, but she's done well rebonding in several situations. She is resilient and will do well once she finds that committed family. Misty came into the shelter with Shepie and does ok with other dogs. She's been somewhat selective since Shepie was adopted. She liked to run and play with Shepie and makes alot of noise, but its all in good fun. She has an air of self confidence about her. We've not seen her around cats but she does have some prey drive so probably better not to live with kitties. UPDATE: Shepie has been adopted, and Misty is a little blue, but taking it pretty well. We have our fingers crossed she'll find her own home soon! Misty is spayed, microchipped and up to date on her vaccinations. application, home visit, adoption fee

      Breed: Greater Swiss Mountain Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Greater Swiss Mountain Dog / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Sally (wkodit@comcast.net) for more information about this pet. Carlos is a big gentle boy. He has been calm and friendly to all he meets, but after being attacked by another dog in his adoptive home, he is no longer trustworthy with other dogs. He is housetrained and knows how to use a doggie door. He walks well on leash and enjoys going for a hike. He rides well in the car and is easy to take along. He really likes kids, but because of his dog issues only older kids would be better. **We'd like to find him a home where he doesn't need to be around other dogs, but he has been working with a trainer on this and is much improved. He can be around other dogs to go for walks and such. He's doing so well! A home with large dog experience would be ideal. Carlos is such a nice boy and has so much to offer as a companion for the right home. He's super smart, and loves to give kisses. Carlos is about 10yrs. old and 89lbs. Carlos cannot live with cats. UPDATE: Carlos has developed a "protein losing enteropathy" which has responded well to treatment. He requires a special diet and an inexpensive medicine to manage this health problem. We are so sad that he's never, so far, found a loving home. Carlos has been a long term foster, and we are greatly appreciative of sponsorships. Thank-you, Srimoyee for sponsoring him for February. Carlos is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and heartworm neg. application, home visit, adoption fee

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). JACK is a handsome boy, with many talents. His foster dad has done Rally with him, gotten his CGC, and most recently, he had a part in a student film! He is an energetic boy, that settles nicely after his exercise (he enjoys roller blading and hikes). He is smart and responsive. He doesn't enjoy attention from dogs he doesn't know, and will never be a dog park dog, though he has developed friendships with dogs he walks with. We think he'd be happiest/easiest as an only dog. Jack needs a dog experienced person that is interested in doing things with him, engaging his mind. application, home visit, adoption fee

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (long coat). UPDATE: Shepie has been adopted, but Misty (Miss T.) is still looking for her forever home. She's still in boarding and would dearly love a foster home while searching for her forever home. SHEPIE and MISS T. were owner surrenders when their family could no longer care for them. After being surrendered they escaped from the shelter and were lost in the desert for 17 days(!). Despite these less than ideal beginnings, they are friendly, happy dogs. Miss T. is outgoing and bouncy while Shepie is quieter, and a submissive boy. They are sweet, good dogs who need a home that has time to show them how good life can be. We are looking for a foster or a forever home. While it would be wonderful to find them a home together, we will consider separate placings for them with a gradual and gentle transition. They both know the sit command and walk easily on leash. Shep is about 63lbs. and Miss T. about 50lbs. application, home visit, adoption fee

She loves her foster mom, her senior husky foster brother, and her very shy kitty foster sister. She does stilll need some patience meeting new people.
