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...

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: NYC, NY
      Posted Breed: 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:) 1.5y 55lb Bruno Brunelli is everything we love about Pittis. 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! 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 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 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 but is able to continue to play when solicited. He tolerants novice play styles.

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:) 7y 55lb Jay Husky Samoyed mix came to us as a stray and was quite nervous. His outstanding good looks, blue eyes, white coat...how could we say no to this boy! He does well being walked and out of his kennel and does well with other dogs in playgroup. When off leash with other dogs, Jay was very focused on mounting (hey, w all these girls around...no wonder!) and does not respond to handler's corrections. Other wise, he is polite, tolerant, and explores the yard. He just got neutered so that should stop him in his tracks in a bit but for now...! no small children! and he definitely does not like being grabbed by his collar so a harness would be a better choice on this handsome wolf lookalike.

      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 Dachshund = Chiweenie who arrived as a stray. 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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Beagle / Mixed (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:) 3y 13lb Nono Chi Beagle ideal home is where I can either go to work w/ my purrson or ay at home mom:) Previously lived with: Adults/dog Behavior toward children: Calm/relaxed around children Behavior toward dogs: Respectful of dog he lived with Behavior toward cats: Unknown FG/RG: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: Yes (wee-wee pad trained) Energy level/descriptors: Nono is described as friendly affectionate, playful, high activity level. Other notes: Owner notes this is Nono's first time out of the home SAFER ASSESSMENT: 10/12/2016 Look: 2. Dog pulls out of Assessor’s hands, whines Sensitivity: 2. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, his eyes are averted, his tail is between his legs, ears back, whines Tag: 1. Follows at end of leash, body soft, tries to stay close to assessor Squeeze 1 / 2:1. Dog gently pulls back his paw. Toy 1: No interest. Summary: This is reported to be Nono's first time out of the home. He whined continually throughout the assessment. Body low, tail low, tries to stay close to handler; because of his anxious behavior and inability to relax/settle fully, the behavior department believes Nono may benefit best from an experienced adopter. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Nono to new and unfamiliar situations. A decompression period is advised to aid in acclimating Nono to a new home environment. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 10/10/2016 During his initial medical examination, Nono appeared a bit tense though tolerated all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience Profile BASIC INFO Taina A1093000 and Nono A1092998 are Chihuahua shorthair Mix. Taina was bought from someone in the street, and Nono is Tainas son. The main reason for surrender is that the owner is allergic to the dogs. They do not have any health concerns. SOCIALIZATION Both dogs are very friendly with strangers. They have not lived with children, but are very calm, relaxed and playful when young children visit. They have lived with each other and are respectful of one another. They have never bitten anyone. BEHAVIOR They do get anxious when left alone. During storms or fireworks, they hide. They allow you to take away their food bowl, water bowl, or toy away. They are not bothered if you push them off the furniture. They do resist if you try to bathe them. If an unfamiliar approaches the doorway, they bark. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Both dogs are best described as friendly, affectionate and playful. They have a very high activity level. Nono and Taina love to play. They enjoy playing with stuffed toys. They have been kept mostly indoors. Today is Nono's first day outside. They sleep on a doggy bed. They both eat Pedigree. They are house trained and go on wee-wee pads. When left alone, they are well behaved. For exercise, they play with each other.

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Beagle / Mixed (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:) A volunteer writes: A little slip of a girl lies hugging the back corner of her kennel but with my gentle invitation joins me for a walk. Nana may have been a bloodhound in a previous life, as her nose is to the ground sniffing the delights of a city sidewalk as we head to the park. Sweet and incredibly shy, Nana poses for photos, takes treats softly after a sit (she needed some coaxing), and wanted to meet a big boy American Bulldog that passed us by. Nana allows me to pet her gently but its still clear that she’s a bit uncomfortable. A staff person who later moved her to a different kennel told me she’s “sweet” and actually jumped up to be held in his arms! Nana is shy and needs some time to unfold and reveal herself; a gentle touch, a soft voice and patience will give this pretty little girl the time she needs to become one with you. 09/14/16 10:20 Nana is an adult mixed breed dog. She was found tethered to a pole and brought to ACC by police. Nana was a little tense. She walked around pretty slowly. She stood near me while I scanned her (-). She approached and looked at and sniffed me. She was tense with her head low but was tolerant while I collared her. When I finished, she moved closer to me and sniffed me. While I worked, she sometimes sniffed my legs and sometimes walked and looked and sniffed around the room. She was quiet.

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: NYC, NY
      Posted Breed: 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:) Willy Terrier is 10mos, 33lbs, and super friendly w/ cats/dogs and people so we are guessing although not yet confirmed that he is also ok w/ children. In & Out of Cage: Willy was easy to take out of the cage & walk. Stare Test- Willy made soft eye contact. Sensitivities- Willy allowed all handling but was mouthy with tail handling. Play Test- Willy was playful but became very mouthy & jumped into the handler’s face. Toys- Willy was playful with all toys & engaged with the handler. Food Test- Willy ate fast throughout but allowed all handling & for the bowl to be taken. Chewy Test- Willy allowed the handler to touch & take the chewy but did not want to give it up. He was avoidant of the handler’s reach at points. Stranger- Willy was friendly & social. Dog to Dog- Willy was social & pushy with Simon. Cat Test- Willy was social & interested in the cats. He didn’t react when the cats hissed or swatted but because he’s so young & pushy he’ll need a very slow introduction to learn appropriate behavior.

      Oliver Big P...

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: NYC, NY
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (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:) Experienced adopter only for this boy--he's a nipper so NO small children.He needs a very structured environment, ideally a 1 or 2 person home. Please do not apply if you are in a roommate situation or do not have experience w/ GSD types 50lbs 6m Oliver is a mix of something delicious! On the day they were handing out good looks, it seems Oliver stood in line twice! With his bright eyes, sunny smile and golden tresses, he could be in the movies, but it’s his agility and quick wits that truly make him a star. And if you’re searching for an Actor/Athlete/Academic to add to your pack, then you’ve come to the right place. Oliver’s still just a puppy, and being cooped up in a kennel is not his idea of fun. Yet when I reach in with the leash, he ducks and dives to avoid it, such a silly boy! He can be a little hand-shy, especially around his face, so we decide to skip any kind of ‘costume’ for today’s photo shoot. But with such a gorgeous subject, the camera loves him regardless. Out in the yard, he’s energetic and always on the move, and though his previous owner tells us he’s never socialized with other dogs, Oliver is tail-waggingly eager to meet them at the fence, and boisterously friendly in play. The novelty of chasing a tennis ball quickly grows stale, but he’s thrilled to be offered a squeaky toy of his very own instead. We’re told one of his favorite toys at home was a towel! Oliver sits politely on command and takes treats and toys with a super soft mouth, and while he’s still getting the hang of leash walking, we’re making good progress with ‘heel’, and he takes care of his business as we stroll along. All puppies need structure and guidance as they grow, and Oliver’s no exception. But in an experienced home with plenty of activities to keep his mind occupied and his spirit soothed, he’s going to shine like the star he was born to be. Oliver is a 9 month old, male GSD maybe mixed with Akita and Greyhound. He was a given to his previous owner as a gift when he was less than a month. He was surrendered because his previous owner isn’t allowed to have dogs over 25lbs. He has no known injuries or health problems and the last time he went to the vet was 2-17-16. Socialization: Around strangers Oliver was friendly and outgoing and when he played with adults he was exuberant. Around children ages 7-8, Oliver was relaxed and playful and when he played he was exuberant but somewhat rough. He has not been around cats. Behavior: Oliver has never bitten a person or animal. If his food bowl was touched while eating he became playful, he would touch his owners hand with his paw. He’s friendly if a treat or toy is taken from him. He isn’t bothered if he is taken off furniture. He is playful if he is restrained. He isn’t bothered if he is disturbed while sleeping. He isn’t bothered if his paws are touched. He’s tolerant if he is given a bath. He is friendly if an unfamiliar person approached his previous home or owner. For a New Family to Know: Oliver is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident and excitable with a high activity level. The two things his previous owner liked most about him were; he loving and well behaved. When his previous owner was home he would tend to follow him around. He liked to play with balls, chew toys and his favorite towel. His favorite games are fetch and tug. He was kept indoors only and at night he slept on the sofa. He ate both wet and dry food. He is house trained and never had accidents indoors and can also use a wee wee pad. He is well behaved when left alone indoors. He knows the cue, sit. He went on brisk walks a few times a week, on leash he pulls hard. Behavior during intake: While Oliver's previous owner was in the room, Oliver would growl, bark and lunge at me when i walked past him, however he had a wagging tail. After a few minutes he jumped up and licked my face. He allowed me to pet him, hold him and take his pictures. He sat on command and laid in my lap. A big puppy who needs a minor amount of training to be a purrfect puppy!
