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.

      rescue
      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: NYC, NY
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) 1.5y 55lb Bruno Brunelli is everything we love about the bully breeds. He was very friendly, loose wiggly body and a waggy tail. He allowed counselor to pet him and rub his belly. He listened to the commands of sit and stay. He allowed all handling As per the client Bruno is house broken and friendly towards strangers. He has never bitten or scratched anyone to his knowledge. Bruno will chew up shoes if they are left out--so don't leave your shoes out as chew toys! Best in a home w/ no small children due to his energy, and because he is a boy, w/ experienced bully adopters who know enough to be the alpha in the pack:) A volunteer writes: Bruno is a wiggly, playful, sweet bundle of joy! He pulls a little on leash, seems housebroken, sits for treats, and manages to immediately initiate a romance with any tennis ball he finds! I’m not sure I’ve ever met a dog that could entertain himself as well as Mr. Bruno does. He play bows with the ball, waltzes with it, rolls on his back with it, eventually chews it up, and then starts the whole cycle with the next one. Just watching him is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face, but he also loves interacting with people (and, so far, other dogs too!). He seems to be one of those dogs that sees a friend in every stranger (the kind of friend he can give kisses to and get belly rubs from!), but I can only imagine the extra-special-lovin’ he has reserved for his family. Please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC and see if that might be you! 11/08/2016 BEHAVIOR AVERAGE Client came to drop off a dog that he stated was left in his apartment by his roommate. Intact, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: unknown SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/8/16 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: No concerns were seen on this assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Bruno was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. He is sexually motivated but able to continue to play when solicited. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruno be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/04/16 During his initial medical examination, Bruno readily allowed all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: Bruno displays a high activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of experience) Note: see potential challenges section below Potential challenges: _X_Destructive behavior: Bruno is a young, active, enthusiastic dog with lots of energy. He will need daily mental and physical exercise and stimulation to channel that energy appropriately. He is also reported to chew up shoes if they are left out, so this will need to be managed in his future home. 11/05/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION Bruno was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. He is sexually motivated but able to continue to play when solicited. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruno be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle playstyle and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. 11/5: Bruno displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a novel female dog. He is sexually motivated, attempting to mount the female dog, but displays bouncy body language when the female solicits play. He explores the pen for a bit before attempting to mount again. 11/8-11/13: In a group of playful male and female dogs, Bruno displays soft body language when greeting the novel dogs. He is playful, engaging in and soliciting gentle play. He is slightly sexually motivated (he has since been neutered) but is able to continue to play when solicited. He tolerates novice play styles.

      Labrador Retriever Dog For Adoption in NYC, NY

      Zazu Flat Co...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Border Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: NYC, NY
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Flat-coated Retriever (medium coat). Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) This guy loves to be outside so a person w/ a lot of outdoor time and then snuggly time is his Zazu's ideal home. But he is for EXPERIENCED adopters only, preferably 1-2 people in the home and no children. 5y 38lb Zazu fka Zebracake is a good looking gent, reasonably well groomed and dressed in a lush dark chocolate and black coat. His amber eyes light up his face. His muzzle is very slightly grey, and his mouth opens often into a lovely smile. Zazu is a little shy in his kennel, but gets leashed fairly rapidly. He is a very good walker, marks a little his territory, and eyes the pigeons as well as the squirrels in the park. Well, he is just doing his job, as he is part of the herding group of dogs. Zazu does not mind being stared at by me and the camera. He will sit on command, and is not at all interested in my treats that I thought were quite tasty. He seems to like my caresses all over his body. He is a really very gentle and well-mannered pooch. As we were early visitors at a nearby park, we did not meet many dogs, and those we encountered did not elicit much attention from Zazu. He is an easy going character, friendly, a little shy–at least inside our walls–and a lovely Collie/Retriever mix who is sure to attract connoisseurs of the breeds.

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: NYC, NY
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund (short coat). Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) Sky is a 3y 12lb tan and white Chihuahua Dachsund mix dog who arrived as a stray. Sky needs a one person home only with no visitors as he is unpredictable w/ strangers. Upon intake Sky was quiet and very still for introduction with a tense body. Sky was also very still for handling and counselor was able to scan for microchip (negative) collar and photograph. Sky walked well on leash and was responsive to guidance. Sky appeared cautious to petting and counselor did not make contact as Sky appeared fearful to approach of hand with tucked tail and tensing body. Sky is great once he knows you, best in a home w/ 1-2 people w/ no children. Good w/ dogs and cats:) SAFER: NEW HOPE ONLY past behaviors in a home are unknown. Sky was calm and fearful but allowed all handling. During SAFER Sky came into the assessment room fearful with tense body posture he was a bit social towards the assessor. Not all handling items were able to be conducted as Sky attempted to bite the assessor, on the the first paw squeeze. He displayed no interest in any of the resource items during this portion of the assessment. In light of this behavior we feel that placement with a rescue that can provide positive reinforcement-based behavior modification is the best option at this time. Look: 2. Dog's eyes are averted. His body posture is stiff and fearful; his tail is low and not moving. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor's cupped hands. Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, body stiff, mouth closed, lip long, ears back, lip lick. Tag: 2. Dog is fearful with body low, tail tucked, and attempts to exit. Squeeze 1: 5. Dog tries to bite. SO DON'T SQUEEZE!! Dog-Dog:6/2: Sky is a bit nervous. He greets appropriately and wanders in the pen. PLAYGROUP: Sky was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior with dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Sky greets appropriatly and wanders in the pen. Sky spent most of his time next to the dog he was surrendered with. 5/31: Sky greets appropriately and wanders in the pen. He will correct a male that attempts to mount him. 6/2-6/5: Sky is a bit nervous. He greets appropriately and wanders in the pen Facebook: Zani's Furry Friends ZFF (event info posted there) Twitter: zanisff Instagram: zanisfurryfriends Please go to our site http://zanisfurryfriends.org fill out an application and return to dogs@zanisfurryfriends.org Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on on Sundays and sometimes on Saturdays--please ask by writing us at dogs@zanisfurryfriends.org and following us on FB.
