Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (long coat). This sweet dog is Tony and he needs to be adopted soon, as his time is limited. He has been through a lot and he lacks trust. He takes some time to warm up to people, but has consistently warmed up to the staff and volunteers. He needs a patient person who can reassure him. Tony is a 3 year old neutered Border Collie cross. If you can adopt Tony, please contact the shelter at (575) 758-2981. Tony is at the Stray Hearts shelter in Taos, New Mexico.

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.

Very bonded pair, they love to run and play together. They get along very well with other dogs. Flash and Lady are very affectionate and loving with people. They look at you with eyes that make you believe they are absolute angels. However, there is mischief behind those angel eyes just because their cleverness gets them into trouble. They are a treasure but must have an adopter who can work with them to develop all their potential.

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Corrales, NM
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). If you are interested in adopting, fostering or advising Keena, please call: Laura and Peter 505-867-3189 Keena is an extremely intelligent, playful, friendly and good natured 13 month old catahoula/shepherd cross. She's great with kids, adults, male dogs and some female dogs. She needs a lot of exercise and would benefit being a working dog. She is electric fence trained, comes when she’s called, sits, understands "no" and is generally well-behaved. However, she has instigated 3 dog fights with female neighborhood dogs and very sadly her current people can not keep her.
