Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Pointer / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 100.00. This is precious Sienna!! This Sweet girl has had a hard life. She was pregnant when she became a Proverbs' baby. We got homes for all of her sweet babies, and now we are looking for her forever family to love. Sienna is a real love. She is good with other dogs. Because she was alone for so long, she does have a jealous streak and likes to be the only one getting attention....nothing aggressive, just wanting to catch up on all the love she lost out of on. She loves to play, too. I play a game with her called "get the tail". It goes 100 miles an hour, I try to grab it and hold it. Sometimes I get it and sometimes she tucks it so we can play longer. She will chase cats but in a playful manner, not aggressively. When Sienna came to us, she was able to climb our chain link fence. So a privacy fence would be best. We also suggest if she were to live with other dogs that she be fed by herself. But once feeding is over, playtime is good to go!! While she will go in a crate she does not like it and will frequently escape so is allowed free roam of her foster home. She is housebroken and a lover. We are looking for an exceptional home for this baby.

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.

She has great house manners and will sit, stay, lay down, shake, and even grab her own leash and wait by the door when it's time to walk! She is not much for cuddling but she would love it if you rubbed her belly! She spends her days running and playing with her foster siblings. She does great with them but is anxious when meeting new dogs, she needs a little time and patience. She is a jewel and deserves an exceptional home.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Pug / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Tasha was found as a very pregnant stray. She gave birth to 9 healthy babies two weeks before Christmas . The vet believes this was her 3rd or more litter and she is only 3 or 4 years old. She is very very smart and may have had some dog training classes in her past. She knows sit, stay, lie down and let go(when playing with a toy). It takes Tasha a bit to warm up to new people (may growl at strangers) But, once she trusts you, she will be the most loyal dog. Treats are the key to her heart. She does have a high predator drive so no cats. Small children and many dogs are NOT recommended. She is fun, energetic, playful and sweet ONCE she trusts you. A home with frequent visitors would not be the right home for her. She LOVES her people but very suspect of strangers. Will be best in a quiet home where she won't encounter a lot of strange people.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. All the single ladies ~ All the single ladies ... Put a ring on Queen!!! Meet Queen!! I am a true queen. Being the queen and my royal lineage. I want to have my family all to myself. I want to solely be the one for you and you for me. I'm a diva! I like some of my fellow K9's as long as they know I am Queen. Queen is an absolutely gorgeous medium, red-nosed Pitbull Terrier. She came to Proverbs when her Foster Mom alerted us to the fact that she and her 7 puppies were going to be euthanized at a local shelter. Queen has been through a lot in her short life and will require a forever family that will provide her with a nurturing, stable environment. She loves children , and a few other dogs. She is curious about cats, ; there are several in her foster home , and she has never bothered them. Queen is extremely bright, eager to please her people and loves to exercise. She would make an excellent hiking or jogging partner for an active family. She is heartworm negative and has been spayed. Queen prefers ladies, but once she knows the men won't hurt her, she loves them too. We think Queen would be PERFECT for a single lady that has children and wants a dog that will appear to be menacing to strangers. Did we mention she LOVES children? She will alert **Stranger Danger** A fenced yard is required. If you are interested in Queen, please fill out an application. A fenced yard is required. If you are interested in Queen please fill out an application.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Sad story: Peaches aka Peachy was adopted from us as a pup. She was her momma's constant companion on the farm. One day Peaches mom's son came over with his dog and they got into a fight. The son tried to intervene (never do that) and got bitten. Peaches' mom told us to come get her immediately, and she lost the only home she had ever known. It was not Peaches' fault that a strange dog was coming into HER home and acting dominant. She was only trying to protect her momma and was kicked to the curb for it. **She must be your one and only.** If you are an experienced pet owner and would like to give Peaches a shot at a truly forever home, please fill out an application now.

Her fear remains. Twizz needs a patient and loving home that would take her on long walks or jogs, talk gently to her, be patient and allow her fear of them to subside. She appears to have been seriously abused as she is fearful of quick movements, raised voices, and leashes. Do you have a calm home for her? Can you be patient and give her the space she needs to heal? If so, please apply to save this girl!

      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Joey! Joey is a sweet Lab mix who is loving and happy. He loves placing his head in your lap, loves long walks, and is just a pleasant fellow, Joey is fully vetted and just waiting to be adopted. Joey has a lot of energy and must be exercised daily. He has awesome leash manners, sits, lay and heals on command. Joey loves people, but does NOT like other dogs. He must be your one and only. If on a leash around other dogs, he would need a savvy and experienced dog owner to keep him in check. Joey is not for a first time dog owner. He is a great and smart dog but requires a strong pack leader. He is not usually at adoption day, so if you'd like to meet him, let Proverbs know! As you can see, he loves car rides. Can he be your co-pilot???

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Precious was spoiled for the first couple years of her life. She was in the house and loved. But when her mom got married the new husband was jealous and kicked Precious to the curb. She was then "adopted" by a guy that kept her on a chain 24/7. Precious wasn't spayed, so she stayed pregnant. Litter after litter died because her new owner didn't care for her or her puppies. When I met Precious I was determined to save her. She was very cold and on a short heavy chain with inadequate shelter. Her food was frozen to the ground and her bedding was an old frozen pair of jeans. She was miserable & severely neglected. She didn't even have a water dish or food bowl. After weeks of negotiations, her owner finally agreed to surrender her. She was pregnant again, but unfortunately lost her puppies. Precious' heart has been broken so many times, but she still trusts & she still loves. Her life is wonderful now, thank God! She's in a fabulous foster home and getting all the belly rub she desires. She's happy, healthy and a joy to be around. She's crate trained, house trained, adores kids and SOME other dogs. She's also a professional snuggler & car rider. We are looking for a spectacular family for her that will continue to heal her sweet heart!
