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.

      Lady Amelia

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Hound / Mixed. Lady is a very sweet dog. She may be 60lbs, but she loves attention and lap cuddling just as much as a 10lb dog. She can be shy and anxious in new situations or with new people so a rambunctious house may too much for her. She will need a privacy plank fenced yard as she is a fleer when spooked. She is not overly energetic but is a very smart and athletic girl so needs daily exercise and mental stimulation to not get bored. She plays well with other mellow dogs her size or smaller who like to run and tumble and does well on a leash for walks. She is smart and minds well so working on basic obedience or tricks is a breeze. Lady is such a good girl who deserves to be part of a loving family and will give as much love as she is given

      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 $150. 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: 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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Brutus is approximately 2-3 years old. He is a hound mix. Brutus likes to run, jump and play fetch and is pretty agile! He is house-trained, mellow and sweet! He loves to curl up on the couch and veg out! He is skittish around new dogs but has learned to play with his foster brother with no problems. Brutus also loves car rides! He loves to learn and please his person and I think he could be trained to do just about anything. However, his amazing nose will lead him to any food left on counters or trash cans.

      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Pippi is an 11 lb bundle of love just looking for someone with the patience to teach her how to be a good dog. She is believed to be a Jack Russell/Shih Tzu mix around two years old. She is nervous and frightened of new people at first meet but is learning to trust and has come a long way already. Pippi is working hard to learn some life skills that were neglected when she was young and her manners and potty training are coming along well. She loves to play. She is curious and affectionate, a very loyal companion with tons of personality beginning to shine through. Pippi would do better in a home without young children.

      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Nicholasville, KY
      Posted Breed: Husky / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Teddy is about 3 years old and weighs about 25 lbs. His unique appearance has left many people scratching their heads as to what breeds his parents may have been. Your guess is as good as ours. Regardless of his parentage, Teddy is a sweet, intelligent, eager-to-please dog who is loyal to his people. He is potty trained, crate trained, and knows basic commands. One of his favorite tricks is a spin on his hind leg - it's adorable! Teddy loves chewing on bones and playing with toys, especially ones that squeak. Teddy likes to play with the other dogs in his foster home and go for walks. He does get a little overly excited at Petsmart and may bark at people/dogs, but please don't hold that against him. Teddy really is a good boy! He sometimes just needs time to warm up to new people and dogs. Does Teddy sound like a good match for you? Let us know! Teddy's adoption fee is $150.
