Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). A big boy, low with wide shoulders CoCo is a good dog that probably had very little love and attention as a pup. Today, he is a big boy that is friendly and happy and loves to be part of the family. He is always ready for you to put the leash on him and go for a walk. He likes to play with the female dogs in the play yard, and gets along well with select male dogs in the pack. He likes to investigate new territory and is basically a quiet dog. I do not know how he would be with children, but I would recommend, due to his size, that he not be around small children. He needs a fenced yard and needs adults that understand the breed. He just wants an owner that will give him time and attention. Potential adopter(s) must have a knowledge and respect for this type of dog, and know the bully breed's characteristics, care and supervision needed, and accept responsibility to protect him from other dogs and to give him a calm, supervised, happy life. He is neutered, micro-chipped, on heartworm preventive, and up to date on shots. Please contact us if you are interested in CoCo. We do a security home check as well as check references. We are near Sherman, TX, and can consider a home farther away. We would love for him to find his forever home. Contact us if you would like to meet him. Thanks!

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: Boxer / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Very sweet young girl Meet Baby Girl! What a love she is! Very sweet, young, energetic and just loves to play tug of war with the rope. She is one year old and will be fully vetted very soon. We would like to get her seen by as many people as possible to get her ready to find her forever home. She is fine with small children but we are not sure about cats. She has many boxer characteristics even though she is a mix. She has that happy-go-lucky attitude and gets along with all dogs, big and small. If you would like to meet her let us know. We are near Sherman, TX. She deserves the very best home that will make her a permanent part of the family.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). A friendly little guy that loves attention Radar is a happy-go-lucky guy that absolutely loves to be with people. He is a medium size and is probably not through growing. He gets along with most other dogs (he seems to prefer females for playmates), loves to play with toys, loves rawhide bones, and is learning how to walk nicely on leash. He is up to date on his shots, he is heartworm negative, is on monthly preventive, he is neutered, and is microchipped. He lives in Texas and we would consider an adopter within 100 miles, as we do a home safety check, as well as an application along with reference checks. If you live farther away, contact us anyway, and we will work with you. We want to make sure the right pet gets to the right family. For forever. So, if you have room in your home and in your heart for a loving little dog, Radar is for you. Please contact me and we will arrange for you to meet him.
