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.

This adorable girl has come so far during the weeks she has been in training. She is an A student! She has worked hard on her training and has been very successful. She definitely likes to please. Squirt is ready to find her perfect fit. Squirt will need a committed person who understands that it is more then just taking Squirt home. Continued structure on what she has been taught will be the key to success for Squirt. Her trainer wants to make sure that the fit is a good one and would like to meet Squirts potential foster or adopter. A handling session in North Brunswick NJ with Squirts trainer would be needed. There will also be a private training session at Squirts new home so everyone is on the same page on what will keep Squirt that A student at home. Squirt is a year old. She is a little pittie who is simply adorable and will be a wonderful family addition. Although Squirt has been introduced at training to other dogs and does well with her trainer in attendance, her trainer feels she will best as an only dog at home. Children who are older and mindful will be her best fit.

Ya think it was easy sticking my paws in this crazy outfit? Not to mention sitting still, while all I heard was .. Squirt sit, Squirt look at the camera, Squirt wanna treat look this way! (sigh) All I was thinking is take the picture already and hurry up this Santa outfit is pretty itchy! Well maybe you don't know what an awesome doggie I am and that's why I still don't have a family. My name is Squirt, yea go ahead with the jokes. I know Squirt means tiny or little in that Human dictionary. I'm petite, little.. yep and the best part about that is I don't take up much room. Oh and I'm really smart too. I mean I had it going on before I went to training, BUT now I'm a Rock Star! I love to listen and I love everything I learned with John my Trainer. He tells me all the time how proud he is of me. John explains it perfectly, he says I have come a long way. John says even though I am doing well with his helper dogs at training He would like to see me as the queen bee in a home. I would loved to be spoiled and be center of attention! I mean I have so much love to give a family no one is gonna miss having another dog anyways when you see how awesome I am. I enjoy people, and kids who respect doggies. A family.... boy that sounds so amazing. How about giving me a chance? I mean if you don't give me a chance I keep making John Rich while I wait for a family to love me. Come on humans fill out an application for me! http://www.nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $225.00. 17Jan2017: Sweetheart would love to get out of boarding how, about giving her a chance. Sweetheart is a pretty amazing dog. They say she's a blue and white but sometimes she appears to have a beautiful pastel cream color coat. She is about 4.5 years old, spayed and UTD. She weighs about 70 lbs . She knows simple commands such as SIT, STAY and give PAW. She is crate trained as well. She would do best in a home with children over 13 yrs of age who are respectful. Although we dont know Sweethea rts past it looks like some of her teeth have been filed down or purposely pulled. She is not a fan of hard treats, understandable with some missing teeth its hard forger to take on a tuff chew treat. There is plenty that she does enjoy, like car rides, out door exercise, or simply enjoying affection from someone. Sweetheart can not live with cats. She would love to be your one and only pet. She is house and crate trained as well. If she captures your heart and you would like to have her become part of your family please fill out an application http://nycsecondchancerescue.org/app-form/

      Breed: Mastiff-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). 9 June 2016: He is a big mush, loves to cuddle. He was a euth list pull from Manhattan ACC, was found as a stray by the police (hence the name "Fuzz", lol) He was adopted out once, also in NJ, but was returned for aggression. We have not seen any severe aggression- and we have tried to see what would get a rise out of him. He plays and curls up with my two big boys (lab/ridgeback mix, shep/shar pei mix) and has no food aggression or an ... ything with them. He knows basic commands, is house trained and crate trained. He is not a big fan of the crate, but will go in on command. I don't think he would do well if crated all day. Very treat motivated, which is helpful bc he can be a little stubborn- there is no forcing this big boy to do something. He def needs a strong leader, who will be patient with slow intros etc. I feel like he is finally learning how to "dog", like doing things a normal dog would do- running around outside, playing with dog toys, just having fun. He does have some skin issues- scarring on his neck, possibly from embedded collar, and scarring on his muzzle, possibly from being taped/tied shut. He has some skin issues on his feet also, which the vet thinks is allergy related, and we check/clean his paws regularly

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). 13 June 2016: Her name is ginger, she's between 9 months old. Ginger is amazing with people. She loves everyone. Cats and dogs are a no, but I a ... m currently training her to at least ignore them while on walks. Her first vet appointment will be this Friday. She will receive her first full dose of all vaccines. Shortly after her vet appointment I will be spaying her. Ginger learns very fast. She is great with sit, stay. She had some separation anxiety but that has completely stopped since I started training her. I've had ginger for a week so far. She is amazing with allowing you to handle her. Such as cleaning her ears and taking care of cuts scraps, and playing with her paws. She's shy at first but once she warms up she is a cuddle bug. I don't know her history before I got her. I took her home in a split decision to avoid her being sent to a kill shelter. Ginger is okay with dogs as far as they are far away from her, she is easily intimidated by them. I have been working on getting her comfortable with my own dog. Ginger is very athletic and loves to run and fetch.
