Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Kramer is a happy, goofy boy ready for a terrific forever home! He's great to take on walks, runs or hikes. And he's equally happy chilling out at home too, entertaining himself with toys. He's the kind of pup that is just happy to do what you want to do, take a walk? YAY! Hang on the couch? That's great! Best of all, the boy is a snuggle bunny! Kramer is house-trained and crate trained, knows basic commands and enjoys car rides. He's a friendly guy and good with men, women, kids and dogs. He does need to be introduced to new people & dogs appropriately, as all dogs do, & he sometimes gets alarmed at fast movements or people coming up on him quickly. So he needs a family familiar & comfortable with dogs who can get alarmed in some settings or situations. He would LOVE to have a home with another dog to be a companion & playmate. Kramer is about 3 years old. He's a great medium size, is neutered, up to date on vaccines & heartworm negative. If you're ready to take a handsome, happy, affectionate dog into your heart and your home, Kramer just might be the guy for you! If you are interested in adopting Kramer, fill out an application online at http://aarfatlanta.org/adoptable-pets/adoption-application/ and we'll be happy to set up a meet and greet!

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.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Stone Mountain, GA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Sputnik! This little guy will rock your universe! He is about 3 years old and only about 15 pounds. But he plays like a big dog and would love an active home. He would be a great hiking or walking buddy (although his legs are a little short to run along with a human). He gets along great with other dogs and even tries to play with the cat in his foster home. Sputnik is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative.

      Posted Breed: Corgi / Yellow Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Ella is about the sweetest thing! This little girl is about 3 years old, and 30lbs. She loves her human friends, and adores the kitties in her foster home. She is not a big fan of other dogs, so is looking for a forever home as an only pup. She would not be a good candidate for dog parks, doggy care or doggy play dates. She walks very well on leash but also loves to sniff around and stretch her legs in the yard at her foster home. Ella is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Potter! This handsome boy is about 4 years old and is a silly guy! He loves to carry his toys when he goes for a walk, loves to play ball, and has a great time cuddling on the couch. He knows tons of tricks and will happily do all of them for a treat. He gets along well with most other dogs and he loves his kitty friends! As sweet as Potter is 99% of the time, he does get startled easily because his vision isn't great. If he is startled or doesn't see someone coming, he can be reactive. Potter would do best in a home with no small children and with a family that understands his limited vision.

      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Pop Tart! This gorgeous girl had a rough start with AARF. After spending nearly a month at animal control, she was attacked by her kennel mates at the shelter. Her injuries needed immediate vet care, and she spent the first 2 weeks of her time out of animal control at the vet's office. After battling a bad case of kennel cough and a long recovery from her injuries, Pop Tart is now happy and healthy and ready to find her forever home. Our best guess is that she is a red Doberman / pit bull mix, which means she is incredibly athletic, sweet and snuggly and very loyal. Pop Tart seems to be a little too interested in cats and other small critters, so would do best in a home without small furry friends. She needs an active family, one that up for daily playtime and some adventures! Pop Tart is completely house and crate trained and already knows "sit" and "shake". She loves to play, but also enjoys a good snuggle on the couch in the evening. If you think Pop Tart would be a good fit for your family, fill out an application today! Pop Tart has Paw Pals: Terry and Jean K of Atlanta, GA!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Nanny Ducky is Miss Lissy and Choco's mom. She and her pups were found in a junkyard, and she was such a good mom! She keep them safe in a very dangerous environment, and now it's her turn for a forever home. Ducky is about 4 years old, and is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, crate trained and has completed a basic obedience class. Nanny Ducky gets along with most dogs, but can be a little protective (not surprising, given her history.) She would probably prefer a home without cats. She is a happy, happy girl, and would love to have couch to snuggle on, some green grass to roll in and a forever home where she will always feel safe.

      Posted Breed: Plott Hound / Mixed (short coat). Hello, my name is Didi! I am an older gal looking for my forever home. I am currently staying at AARF Pet Central which is really great, I get treats all the time! There are lots of cats here, who are nice, but I can’t wait to be in a forever home where I’m the only pet, since I am not crazy about other dogs. I like to get a little exercise walking around Stone Mountain and playing with my toys. My favorite thing in the world is getting to see people who will give me lots of belly rubs and snuggles. I’m a really sweet girl just looking for a family to call my own. I'd like to have a family that understands me, since I have had some not-so-nice people in the past.If you are interested in adopting or fostering me, please fill out an application. I'm ready to find my forever home.

      Posted Breed: Chocolate Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Chocolatte (aka Choco ) is a 2.5 year old chocolate lab mix. He, his sister Lissy and his mom Nanny Duck were found in a junk yard, starving and scared. Now, Choco is a big lovebug! He is a big guy and is very active. He loves to play and does well with most other dogs, even little dogs. After a day of playing, he loves to snuggle on the couch with his people. He has passed a basic obedience class and loved it, and would do well in continuing classes. He would prefer a home without little children, because he doesn't know how big he is. Choco is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. All the adoptable AARF dogs are in foster homes to get them ready for their forever homes.
