Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). NAME: Dave BREED: Beagle APPROXIMATE AGE: 5 years WEIGHT: 20lbs ADOPTION FEE: $100 Dave came to us from a crowded shelter after being found as a stray. He is completely blind; his condition is called SARDS (sudden acquired retinal degeneration), which is not painful and does not affect other areas of his overall health. Dave is a brave boy who is already adjusting well to life in his foster home. He has a lot of energy and loves to explore inside and out. He is great with other dogs and after a brief period of barking in the general direction of the cats he encountered, he is now comfortable with them too. Dave loves attention from everyone he meets; despite being blind he is very confident and is friendly with all people. He even likes to rough-house and wrestles with his foster mom. All Dave needs to be happy and feel safe is a little time to adjust and patience while he navigates his surroundings. He is house and crate trained, walks well on a leash, rides well in the car, and is a quiet boy especially considering his breed. This little fellow is going to make a sweet and fun addition to his new family!

More About Beagle Breed
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.

      Velvet

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Words cannot describe how wonderful this little dog is. Abandoned in a shelter, Velvet was going to be euthanized because of her age and some treatable medical issues. The volunteers there saw what a gem she was; they knew she had to make it out so that she could find a family and show them what an amazing girl she can be. Many people worked together to get Velvet safely to us at GOT. As always, we were full and adding one more dog felt a little overwhelming. Velvet must have been overwhelmed too, but she didn't show it. She has adjusted so well in such a short amount of time, making friends with everyone and jumping into the routine of the rest of the pack. She needed a dental cleaning and does best with softened food, but other than that she's in great health and can even handle the steep old staircase. She is house trained, rides well in the car, walks well on leash, and is very quiet. She has no food aggression and even likes to raid the toy box looking for bones. Velvet's friends include dogs, cats, and kittens, and she has lived very happily with young children. If you're looking for a great dog to add to your family, your search is over. Velvet is more than we could have hoped for, and she's going to be the most wonderful companion for a very lucky person!

      Breed: Mastador
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). NAME: Fezzik BREED: Lab Mix AGE: 13 years WEIGHT: 90lbs ADOPTION FEE: $75 You might remember Buster, the dog in need of eye removal surgery. If you don't remember, check out the last pictures posted here for a very graphic refresher. This poor guy was in need of our help, and a new start to life called for a new name. Buster is now our gentle giant Fezzik (if you don't get the reference, look it up, buy the book and buy the movie. You won't be disappointed). Fezzik is a little bit of a mess right now with some neglected old man health issues, including (obviously) obesity, but with just some time and patience we'll get him healthy and happy once again. Meanwhile, Fezzik is being enormously tolerant of having his eye and surgery site treated, and being helped to his feet when he needs to go outside. He is in pain and nervous in his new environment, but he has adjusted better than we could have hoped for and has been nothing but sweet and gentle with his many foster siblings. Despite his mobility issues, Fezzik is housetrained and enjoys his time outside. He is great with other dogs, cats, and every person he's met so far. We know that it might be a long shot for this big guy to get adopted, but our hope is that Fezzik finds a home with a family who will love him forever. If not, he'll spend the rest of his days being spoiled and pampered in foster care. Either way, we are so happy that this good old boy is safe!

      Breed: ShiChi
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Shih Tzu / Mixed (medium coat). NAME: Scragglemuffin BREED: Chihuahua/Shih Tzu mix AGE: 10 years WEIGHT: 6lbs ADOPTION FEE: $150 We don't often have a need to save small, scruffy dogs: they are quick to be adopted and aren't as commonly euthanized as other breeds. But Scragglemuffin was in danger and he is so small that it wasn't a problem to make space. This little guy was an easy addition to the pack- he's friendly and quiet, and likes snuggling and being carried. Despite being mostly blind, he gets around just fine and has made friends with everyone he's met so far. He eats well and likes to ride in the car. Just an easygoing little fellow who needs a home and a family who will love him forever!

      Breed: Labbe
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). NAME: Annie BREED: Beagle/Lab Mix AGE: 7 years WEIGHT: 45lbs ADOPTION FEE: $100 ​ Poor sweet Annie found herself alone and afraid in a crowded shelter. She was just a few days from being euthanized when GOT decided that a lack of space wasn't reason enough to let her die; we had to squeeze her in and we're so glad we did! Annie is fun, silly, and full of personality. She likes other dogs (especially when she can be in charge!) and is wonderful with cats. She is house and crate trained and is well past her destructive puppy phase. Annie has a lot of years ahead of her and all she wants is a family who will keep her safe and love her for the rest of her life. ​ Annie, like all GOT dogs, is fully vaccinated, heartworm tested (negative), and spayed. She has been dewormed and is current on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.

      Norma Jean

      rescue
      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Norma Jean might look sad, but these may just be the happiest days of her life. This poor girl was found as a stray, completely emaciated, covered in fleas, feces, and open sores, and in pain from overgrown nails and arthritic hips. The shelter put out a desperate plea to save her life, and Good Old Tails couldn't say no. She hasn't been with us for very long but has already put on weight, and with some proper nutrition and TLC has felt a dramatic improvement in her skin and coat. Sweet Norma is grateful for everything she is given- soft beds, good food and treats, and all the love she wants. She is gentle and tolerant of all her foster friends; dogs, cats, and kids. We know that she might spend the rest of her days in foster care, but we are so happy to make those last days as bright as we can for her. Please consider donating to Norma's ongoing care.

      Poodle (Toy) Dog For Adoption in Seven Valleys, PA, USA

      Fritzie

      rescue
      Breed: Poodle (Toy)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Toy). Words cannot describe how adorable and sweet this little guy is! Fritzie loves everyone he meets: dogs, cats, and of course all people. He is quiet, playful, and very snuggly. He's just a tiny little man but luckily he doesn't mind being carried. Fritzie is very good friends with Trixie and he would love to go home with her, but they can be adopted separately. ​ Because of his age and size, we will not place Fritzie in a home with small children. He needs help with house training but is happy to wear a belly band when not in his crate (he is crate trained). Fritzie had very bad teeth when he was brought to rescue and many had to be removed; he is very happy to eat moistened kibble or canned food, and he absolutely loves treats!
