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: Italian Greyhuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Italian Greyhound / Chihuahua / Mixed. Don’t let Marsh’s shyness fool you; he is an active, happy little dog that will thrive once he gets to know you and you get to know him. He is 2 years old, weighing about 10lbs. He adores other dogs and must be placed in a home with an active dog or two. Once he’s finished playing he wants nothing more than to sit close to you so you can give him a scratch or a pat. He needs a home that can provide him with a regular schedule since he is still young; think of him as a 5-year-old boy that might need to be reminded to do his chores on occasion. He is crate trained and goes into his crate at night or when his foster parents need to leave the house. He loves squishy dog beds and lots of doggy blankets to cover up with at night, and he will cover himself up when it’s time to go to sleep. He loves to play with toys and his foster brothers; often crying for his foster brothers if he is separated from them for too long, so please consider him if you have an active dog at home that needs someone to play with. Marsh wants nothing more than to be loved forever by a family he can call his own. He is a bright light that has shined a bit of sunshine in his foster family’s home. His adoption includes age appropriate vaccinations, worming, rabies vaccination, neuter, and microchip including registration. .

      Breed: Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed. Shayna is a sweetheart, very affectionate and eager to please. She has just gone to a new foster home with 3 older boys and cats. She has bonded with the mom more so far. This is in a short time frame. She is learning the ropes of a new home. She isnt botherered by the cats at all, which is great. She would enjoy having another dog or two around. She shadows her foster mom every step at the moment. We believe this is because she knows she is the leader, and she is settling in. Shayna craves being around her humans, its a comfort for her. Whoever adopts her will need to give her a bit of time to learn the new ropes, before you know it she will be settled. She is crated when all the family is away from the house, she seems to find this a good happy place and thats just fine. She is interested in toys like balls and ropes. She does well with fetch Her new foster mom says when she first arrived she was shy, but after several hours she had adjusted well. She has done a great job pottying outside, with almost no accidents. They are are still working on that. She is currently taken outside every few hours and she goes as needed). Shayna likes to gently jump up with her front paws, as to say "Hey how are you". She is very tolerant and gentle with kids. However, because she jumps, the ideal home would not have small children. She walks pretty well on the leash as well, but in general, some basic training would be beneficial. Her new home needs to be loving, but firm with the rules, patient and kind while she gets settled in. Her ideal home would be routine as new and noisy situations stress her out. However, when she settles in, she will be the perfect companion Shayna is a beautiful small girl. She is probably 35/40lbs. Fully grown at 2 years old. She is a doll, playful, lovable, and just funny. She is obviously a mixture of some great doggies. Collie, Aussie,Lab or golden but on the small side. If you enjoy a mystery, Shayna is your girl. Shayna is good around other dogs, she is great in the home too. Crate trained. The adoption includes age appropriate vaccinations, worming, rabies vaccination, heartworm test (neg), neuter, and microchip including registration.
