Posted Breed: Pointer / Bluetick Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Bonnie Belle is a very special dog and needs a very special adoptive family. Bonnie came into our rescue with hip dysplasia and had been accidentally stepped on which causes her knee ro become deformed. But despite the pain, Bonnie is sweet and loving. She loves people! She is so sweet and loves toys. She would do well in a family with older children, not that she has EVER done anything to a small child, we only know how she is with children 6 years and up. The best comfort level for her would possibly be only dog or only one other dog in the family. She doesn't want to be stepped on again. She is heartworm negative. Utd on shots and spayed. She has been in a wonderful foster home and is needing to find her forever home. Hopefully one who has the financial means to provide the surgery she needs. Our estimates were over $500 and our fundraising efforts have failed her as Sumter has a depressed economy. She is around 3-4 years old. If interested contact us on Facebook or on our website for an adoption application. www.carolinahelpingpawsrescue.org Please help us get this sweet girl back to full function and no pain and placed in a great family! Her adoption fee is not set as we really need to get her surgery completed. A home visit and vet reference is required.

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.
