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.

My foster mom said I'm a real sweetheart. I love all people, enjoy playing ball, going for walks, playing with my foster mom's resident dogs, going for car rides and following you around the house.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150. This dog has been through so much this is just killing me she is losing her home. Piper was previously fostered by a wonderful man who sadly passed away. Sweet Piper laid with his body for a number of days before he was discovered. She was then adopted shortly after. Piper had an incident where an unknown dog came up in the yard where her and here mom were sitting. Piper reacted by going after the dog & the association where she lived required she leave - so she is back with the rescue again :( Piper is a very sweet girl who adores all humans she just either needs to be an only animal, or she will need to be crate and rotated while we address her issues. Since the passing of her foster human she has also become extra needy and seeks affection frequently so she would enjoy a home where she can get a lot of love. Her last adopter took her on pack walks twice a week with other dogs and she was doing great! She could really use slow intro's with other dogs and time and patience. She is a total sweetheart, was around children in her last home, and kennels up like a champ! Can anyone please help us find a place for Piper to stay that can help her with her reactivity and give her a sense of security? We provide training assistance and will be there to help every step of the way.

I came from a hoarding house so I did not get much socialization. It takes me awhile to get used to my home and the people in it but once I do I am a total sweetheart. I get along with other dogs great and would do best if I had a dog companion. I will run off if given the chance so it's best my new home have a fenced in yard.

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 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! I really would love a home to call my very own. Could that be with you?

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 400. Hi! My name is Champ. I'm an easy going guy that's looking for my forever home! I first came into rescue after 2 other dogs attacked me and almost killed me. Some nice people brought me to the emergency vet because I was so badly torn up. My wounds healed just fine, but my bones took a little longer to get better. I still have a bump on my leg where my bones are healing, but the specialist says that I should be just fine! Despite the bad experience that I had with those dogs, I still love other dogs! I love everyone really. Dogs, Cats, kids, and all people! I'm such a smart boy, and learn new things every day, but i'm still a puppy, so I need ongoing training so that i'll still be a good boy when i'm all grown up. I know how to potty outside, I don't mind time in my kennel, and I know some commands like "sit", "lay down" and "off". I am excited to meet my forever family, so fill out an application today!

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150. *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: $150

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150. Hi there! I’m Bruce! I might look like a really intimidating dog… but really im a big lovable goofball. I absolutely adore people! I love everyone I meet! I’ve got a bark that would scare away the bad guys, but if any real danger happens, I’ll leave you in the dust to fend for yourself and while I run for my life. Foster mom says I’m a big Scaredy Cat. I’m 8 ½ years old… but they say you’re only as old as you feel, so in that case, I’m only 3. Haha! I love other dogs! I love to wrestle and run and play! My very best friend in the world is my foster sister who’s a tiny little Shih-Tzu. Although, I am admittedly a little bit awkward when I first meet new dogs (mom says I have no manners) because I like to get right in their face to say Hello! I have the best of intentions, but sometimes it takes other dogs a minute to get used to me. I am potty trained, but sometimes I get so excited to come back inside for breakfast that I forget to go both pee and poop, so I need to be reminded to go back to the grass and go the other potty. I am kennel trained too! That’s where I stay when my humans are at work, and when we are sleeping (unless you want me to sleep in bed with you… I’m really good at that too). When I came into rescue, I had a saggy tumor on my butt that turned out to be cancerous... So we cut that yucky thing off. So far I’ve had a couple other bumps that turned out to be cancerous too. We’ve had everything removed, and I’m on a good diet with supplements that will help my body keep the cancer cells where they should be (Nowhere!). But from what I’m told, eventually I’ll have other lumps show up down the line. Don’t worry though, I don’t let that stupid cancer talk ruin my mood! I’m as happy and spunky as ever, and I intend to stay that way! I’m looking for a family that will love me, with or without cancer, for the rest of my life.
