Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Basset Hound / Mixed (short coat). Fern is an amazing and active dog. She would be great as a running partner. When she first came into our program, she was heartworm positive and nursing a litter of eleven puppies. Since then, she has been treated for heartworms and is looking for her forever home. Fern is a sweetheart and would be the perfect addition to any active family.

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: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Tallahassee, FL
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed. Quest is a 7 month old male, neutered, Border Collie. He’s always on a quest to find something to get into, and as he matures, his foster Mom believes he could have many a successful quest for blue ribbons in agility, or fly ball, or Frisbee, or… He was, by all appearances, an outside dog, with little to no training. He’s becoming more adept at holding his “business” until he’s outside with his foster brother and sisters. He will “sit” on command, fairly consistently. “Lie down” is harder. “High five” is close. Walking on a leash…getting there. Crate training, pretty much there. (He sleeps in a crate at night so that everyone else in the house can get some much needed rest.) He is VERY VERY VERY bouncy. He is VERY VERY VERY energetic. He is VERY VERY VERY mouthy. He does have an off button, but it has to be coaxed into showing itself. All in all…he’s an expectedly exuberant example of a Border Collie puppy.
