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.

      Bruno Brunel...

      rescue
      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      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:) 2y 55lb Bruno Brunelli is everything we love about the bully breeds: Very friendly, loose wiggly body and a waggy tail. He allowed counselor to pet him and rub his belly. He knows his commands of sit and stay. He allows 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:) He can be a bit territorial about his toys and food w/ other dogs so we think his ideal situation is a home w/ a yard and access to other doggies for playtime. He definitely is not a city critter. 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 who entertains himself as well!. 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 who 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. 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 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 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. 11/5: Bruno displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a novel female dog. He 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 tolerates novice play styles.

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (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:) UPDATE: Hey there partner! My name is Alex, and my foster mom calls me Cowboy Alex. I was found all by myself in a park in the Big Apple. Can you imagine a 2 year old out on the streets of New York City all alone? I was sporting the Bob Marley look when I was found and taken to the shelter where they gave me a haircut. The shelter listed me as a Shih Tzu mix but my foster mom seems to think I have some Chihuahua and possibly Dachsund in me. I am a low rider with a long body. My fur is growing out now as you can see in my recent pictures. I am still a diamond in the ruff. I am presently with my foster mom in Pennsylvania. She has been working with me on things like potty training on wee wee pads and getting along with other small dogs my size. I am also working on leash manners because I never had a collar or leash before. I do not know sit or stay yet, but we keep working towards that. I would do well in a quiet home alone or with another dog after slow introductions, and need to be in a home with no children. I seem to prefer a woman vs. a man. I seem to be crate trained as I do spend quiet time in my crate at my foster moms. I am very food/treat motivated and listen quite well when my foster mom brings me my “nums”. I take treats gently from your hand. I do not have interest in toys or balls, and my foster mom thinks I had no puppyhood to learn those, but maybe someday I will learn to play with toys. I am hoping to find my forever home soon so I can continue to blossom with my training. Could that be with you? I sure hope so! 2y 14lb Alex is a small white dog who was found alone in the park. He allowed finder to walk him but when she tried to pick him up to place into a car he snapped at her hand. Alex came into the shelter and did not do much besides sniff around during intake. He was calm when being scanned but did not want to walk on leash with counselor and needed to be carried which he was fine with. He allowed counselor to collar him with no problem. He has been shaved down, these are before and after fotos. He is in rehab in PA as of Aug 15th and we will be looking for an understanding home for him to decompress in forever very soon. He will be avail for adoption so please submit an application if you think he is the project you wish to help.

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier (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:) Sparkle looks like a Boston crossed w/ a Pitti...so that would make her a Bitti! a vol writes: “All that glitters is not gold, it sparkles!” And our Sparkle lives up to her name in every way. She’s playful, fun, sweet, loves toys and balls, never stops wagging her tail, and has the best ear-to-ear grin. When she isn’t smiling, which is rare, you can see her adorably pouty underlip–which you’ll want to schmush, trust me on that. Sparkle executes a perfect sit in anticipation of a treat which she takes gently with a sweet wave of her tail. Sparkle spent a few days with a person who developed allergies so couldn’t keep her, and told us that she was friendly, gentle and playful with the children in the home (ages 5 and up). Sparkle seems to be housetrained, using the outside ‘facilities’ as soon as we were out the door, before I take her off leash to play. No need to go to the movies or seek outside entertainment when this little imp is by your side. She’ll be happy with a box full of toys and balls! Guaranteed that you’ll be wearing an ear to ear grin as big as Sparkle’s, so come meet her today. You’ll want to make her yours and we’ll send you home with a tennis ball for her for starters! Sparkle is a brown and white, female large breed dog roughly 2 years old. She was being looked after by a neighbor once her owner lost her home but he cannot take care of her anymore due to his severe allergies towards the dog. Socialization: Around strangers Sparkle is friendly and outgoing. She lived with children ages 5 years and older and was very playful and gentle with them.

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (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:) Cookie Dough is a typically scared little 10lb 4-5y Chi chi and rightfully so as almost everyone including the cats are bigger than he is! here is what the shelter said, we are just getting to know him Look: 1. Dog holds gaze with soft eyes, soft body. He allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Dog holds gaze for three full seconds. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, and his tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back his paw. Toy: 3. Dog takes toy away, keeps a firm hold. His body is stiff. Summary: Cookie allowed all handling. When in possession of the toy, he became a bit tense when the hand went near it. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: 9/7: When introduced off leash to dogs, Andrew is fearful and keeps to self. 9/9: Cookie keeps only to himself. 9/12: Cookie is fearful and keeps to himself. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Cookie was scared. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 9/7/17 During his initial medical exam, Cookie was tense but allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: We have no history on Cookie so we cannot be certain of his behavior in a home environment. In the care center, he displays a medium-low level of activity. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially with behaviors outlined below) _X_No young children (under 5): Due to potential guarding behavior, as well as the level of fear he has at times displayed at the care center, we recommend a home without young children. Potential challenges: _X_Resource guarding: Potential resource guarding was noted on his assessment as Cookie was observed to become stiff when in possession of a toy. For this reason, we advise against ever removing items from Cookie's possession without safely trading for an item or greater or equal value. Guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist is highly recommended to aid in safely managing/modifying this behavior in a new home environment if the behavior presents a problem. _X_Fearful: Cookie is a bit fearful at the care center. It is important to always go slow and give Cookie the option to walk away from any social interaction. Cookie should never be forced to approach anything that he is uncomfortable with or to submit to petting or handling. It should always be Cookie’s choice to approach a new person or thing. Cookie would do best in an initially calm and quiet home environment and should be given time to acclimate to his new surroundings.

      Breed: Border Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      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.
