Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Katie is a 2- to 3-year-old dog who weighs about 50 lbs. We believe she is a "farm dog mix" with some Border Collie and some Labrador Retriever (among other things) in her pedigree. Katie is potty and crate trained. She is extremely intelligent and super athletic, so she needs mental and physical stimulation to stay happy. Katie is very eager-to-please and handler-focused, so she would be a good prospect for trick training or a dog sport like agility. She already knows several commands and loves learning new things. Katie loves playing with toys and other dogs of all sizes, but doesn't always know her own size/strength so she would be best with a similarly-sized dog. Unfortunately, Katie does have some fear issues with strangers, so she needs careful introductions to new people. Therefore, we think she would do best in an experienced home without small children. But once she gets to know you, she's all love and cuddles. Does Katie sound like a good fit for your home? Katie's adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in adding Katie to your family, please complete our online adoption application at www.friendsoftheanimalsjessamine.org and a representative will contact you. This application does not obligate you in any way; it's simply the first step in our adoption process that helps us ensure the best match for you and our beloved foster pets!

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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Ollie ~ 1-year: Ollie is a long-haired doxie and possibly Yorkie mix. He is very shy initially and does not show well at Petsmart as he seems to be overshadowed with all the dogs, people and activity. At home he settles right into the routine. He is doing well on his crate training and is working on his house breaking. Ollie gets along well with other dogs and I believe he would do absolutely fine with children who are respectful of dogs. Currently he is fostering on a farm with farm animals and enjoying helping with the barn chores. He rides pretty well in a car and is the ultimate snuggle puppy. He can also zip around the fenced dog yard....running like the wind. He is going to make someone or some family a fun and good little companion. Does Ollie sound like a good match for you? Let us know! Ollie's adoption fee is $175. If you are interested in adding Ollie to your family, please complete our online adoption application at www.friendsoftheanimalsjessamine.org and a representative will contact you.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed. Hi everyone! My name is “Gucci” and as you can see I am quite the dapper gentleman! I am a senior fellow of about 10 years and I am looking for a quiet couch, a soft bed and a gentle touch. I am a good snuggler and love to be held, petted and talked to. I do have limited vision…I can see a little in the back yard in bright sunlight, but inside the house I mostly rely on my sharp hearing and my good nose to find my way around. I’m really good at it too! After just a couple of days being here I was getting around the house like I’d been here all along. My foster home has 3 other dogs and I get along with them just fine. There is also a cat here and we coexist very peacefully. There are also 2 boys in my foster home. They are older (13 and 15) and they are respectful and gentle so I like them very much. In fact, I will make my way to their bedroom and bark to get picked up and join in the fun. I probably wouldn’t be good for a family with small children, but older kids would be fine. Don’t be put off by my age though! I have plenty of spunk! I might not be able to chase a ball, but I still like to play with Mom and the boys. I am housebroken as long as I am taken outside regularly and I am crate broken also. I’m a good boy for bathing and grooming. My yard is fenced, but Mom doesn’t leave me outside by myself, even though I enjoy being outside. If you think you would like more information about me, please contact Friends of Jessamine County Animals

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Shaggy is a 4-year-old mixed breed dog who weighs ~35 lbs. We were told he is a terrier mix, but no one really knows. His coloring is amazing and a must see and also makes me think he may have a bit of aussie in him as well. Shaggy is crate and potty trained. He is an active boy who loves to get out for walks and playtime. He is also very smart and sensitive. Shaggy would love a home with a fenced yard to play in and does well as an only dog, but won't mind a fur sibling with proper introduction. He does not do well.with cats or small children under 12. He loves to be with his person and rides well for outings. Shaggy's amazing coloring works well with a short, summer haircut, but you can let it grow out if you prefer. Shaggy would love someone to call his very own and loves to snuggle. Shaggy is going to make someone an awesome companion. Shaggy's adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in adding Shaggy to your family, please complete our online adoption application at www.friendsoftheanimalsjessamine.org and a representative will contact you.
