Posted Breed: Border Collie / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). NEEDS FOSTER! Hello! I'm Emma. My life was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas. I am a super sweet girl but someone must have abused me very badly because most men scare me to the point where I am trembling and fearful. Meeting new people can be hard for me to but once I know you are a safe person I am just a love! I have been working really hard with a trainer and am learning that not everyone is bad and if I am afraid it's ok for me to go to a quiet space instead of get defensive. I am in need of a dedicated foster home or forever home where I can continue my training which will be covered by the rescue. I am completely kennel and potty trained and I love going for walks with my gentle leader on. I need a very mellow household where I can either be an only pet or be with another dog of similar size that is very good with other dogs. No kitties either please because they are just way to interesting to me and they get me all hyped up. I know you are reading this and I probably sound like it's going to be hard work to have me stay with you but please remember....it's not my fault I am so terrified and I really just need someone to give me a chance. Is that someone you? *Emma also needs a home that is kid free* Date of birth (estimated): 10/24/13 Good with Dogs: with proper intros Good with Cats:NO House Trained: Yes Adoption Fee: $250

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.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! I'm Jewel! I was saved at the last minute by my wonderful rescue and foster family! I am a sweet girl that is looking for my Fur Ever Home! Is it you? My ideal Fur Ever home would be a quieter home where I can run and play, maybe with a male doggie friend preferably? No cats please! We don't get along. Little children run in around make me nervous, they are just so fast and unpredictable! I wouldn't mind a few older children, 14+ would be best. They are able to understand that I sometimes need my space to chill. Everyone does right? I love, love to snuggle! I know sit, lay down, off, no, kennel up, and shake! I am also receiving training through the rescue! I can't wait to meet you!

I love to snuggle, and lay around with you. I would love a casual walk here and there, or to lay on my bed and chew a bone. I would prefer to be the only dog, but I have lived with one other male dog my size and done well after we got to know each other. No cats or small dogs for me, when they run I want to chase them. I am crate trained and house trained and love to ride in the car. I walk well on a leash and am quiet in the house. I would prefer a fenced yard as I don't like strange dogs wandering over while I am outside. I like to meet my friends slowly and properly. I love kids and vegging out with my family! is it you?

I've been in my foster home for a little while now and I am great friends with the resident dog and cats. My foster parents are showing me what the good life is all about with structure, rules, and lots of love and attention when I do things that make them happy. They are always saying what a good girl I am! Now I guess the humans all say I am ready for my Fur-Ever Home. All I know is I hope they are nice people who feed me treats! *FREE ONGOING TRAINING WITH PRIMAL CANINE INCLUDED WITH ADOPTION* Date of birth (estimated): 1/21/15 Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Yes House Trained: Yes Adoption Fee: $250 + tax

She has had ACL surgery on both of her back legs but you would never know it. Mya has had a very long history of neglect. She is a very sweet girl who is very forgiving despite her past. She cannot be in a house with cats. She is just way to stimulated by them. She is good with other dogs as long as slow proper introductions are done. Mya does not like to be confined so she is not a dog that would do well in a kennel all day. She is not destructive when left in the house free roaming. Her favorite pastimes are snuggling on the couch or chilling with her stuffies. She is also a bit unsure of men so slow intros with men are best. If Mya doesn't win you over with her adorable face, she will win you over with kisses!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Training with Primal Canine Hi! My name is Rambo. I was found tied up in a field abandoned with an open bag of food. Despite my sad story I am a big snuggle bug! I am also a ladies man and don't really like other boy dogs so I would do best in a home with another female dog or if I were the only dog. Cats are also not a good idea. They are way to interesting to me. I really love my humans and would love a home of my own perhaps with a fenced yard I can run and play in....I also love to learn and my foster mom says I'm very smart. I learned to wait for a treat until she says it's ok to eat. I know how to walk on a treadmill to! I enjoy the exercise :) I have done a lot of dog training and I've come a really long way. I need a strong leader with a loving heart.

When I came to rescue I was severely underweight, had frostbite on my ears, and had burns on my body which have caused me to have scars. Despite my past I am a lover! I am playful and active, but I also like to snuggle. I am highly food motivated of course so I love to learn. I need to be crated when humans are not home because I like to counter surf and I hate it. But hey....just look at my cute face!

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! I am Roman. I was rescued from a ditch in Minnesota after people shot me in the head! I was so hungry and scared, and when my guardian angel came to rescue me from that ditch, I was so scared that she was going to shoot at me too, that I ran away from her. Lucky she stayed for 4 whole hours and finally caught me and took me to safety. She's now my foster momma, and is helping me look for a forever home! I am very nervous of new people, since so many people have tried to hurt me... so I just need a little time to get to know my new human friends before I trust them completely. But once we've become friends, I'll love you more than you could have ever imagined and I'll be your loyal companion forever! Would you like to meet me?!

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (medium coat). *Blind Dog* *Cooper is Blind* Date of birth (estimated): 10/1/15 Hello, I'm Cooper! I am a fun loving, playful pup who loves to snuggle in bed or on the couch as well as to chew on bones and play with friends. I may not be able to see you but I have a really good sense of smell and I hear so much. I have adapted to this whole blind thing really well- and I learned my foster Mom's house really quickly. Once I found the steps, now I run up them but still go cautiously down them. Sometimes, when I don't follow my fur siblings up, all she has to do is tell me to "come upstairs" and then I know where they are. I am really smart and am learning manners but I tend to nose into my foster Mom and will jump on her when she gets home because I'm so very happy and excited that she's home, and that way I know how close I am to her! I am looking for a forever family who will love me unconditionally, a best friend to be my eyes for me so that I don't get hurt or go somewhere that's not safe for me. I love to snuggle with my fur siblings and I also like to chew on them sometimes, so I would hope that they are nice to me. I need a family that is 100% committed to me and to make sure that I am always safe and snuggled. I learn quickly and love treats! We've been working on this thing that my foster mom says, "sit" I'm not exactly sure what the other dogs are doing but I'm hoping to figure it out soon. I will need a fenced in yard and to not be left unsupervised so that I don't poke my eyes. I am like any dog, that likes to run, jump, play, and cuddle. I really am the best snuggler! I love to sleep in bed with my foster Mom but am quite content on my own bed as well. As soon as I hear the treat jar open, I run to my crate and wait for her to give me my treat for being a good boy! ****CHECK OUT MY FACEBOOK PAGE: HANGIN' WITH MR COOPER***** Good with Dogs: I love to play with my fur friends! I enjoy a good game of tug and I love to run around and chase them. Good with Cats: I haven't met any kitties with my foster Mom but I don't know if I would be able to tell the difference! House Trained: Yes, we are still working on a few accidents, but I can't see so it's hard for my foster mom to get too mad at me. I am really good when I'm on a routine and I will usually let my foster Mom know by nosing around. Adoption Fee: $250
