Posted Breed: Boxer / Bulldog (short coat). Let's be happy together Hi everyone, my name is Earl. Just like a lot of my friends here at Paws 4 You, I'm looking for a home. But I've been having a little issue that I want to talk to you about. A lot of the humans who walk through here never stop to say hi to me. They just walk right past my kennel to visit little yappy dogs. I really can't figure it out, but it makes me so sad and so discouraged. One day I actually heard someone say that I was big and scary. I was so confused. Me??? They think that about ME??? Big cuddly ME??? Just because I'm big and strong doesn't mean I’m not sweet and loving. All I want to do is go for walks and cuddle. Really, that's it. But as time keeps passing, I'm starting to lose hope. I'm starting to worry that people won’t ever give me a chance. Sometimes I think I might never make it out of here. And it's just not fair. I once heard you should never judge a book by its cover. I have no idea what that means because I’m a dog, BUT I do know that you should never judge a dog by its breed. I know I will be the best dog you ever had. I just know it. I even listen to commands that people always seem to like to give so much. I really just want a chance to show you how happy we could be together. Please give me that chance.

More About Boxer Breed
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.

      Age: Senior
      Location: Miami, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle (medium coat). Be my cuddly human! Hello humans, my name is Daphne. I wanted to let you all know that I am currently looking for a quiet home with humans around who are especially good at petting. I can be a talkative gal, because I want to let everyone know how much I love them. I even remind them to pet me when they forget – you can watch my video to see what it’s like to be reminded by me . Being good at being petted is my passion in life, and I'm really looking forward to fulfilling that in my near future. Long walks can be a little challenging for me, so I'd mostly prefer to lay by your side and... well... be pet. Although if you took me home, maybe you could help me with my diet, and then maybe I could walk more. I would like to try that. I'm also pretty good at snuggling and would love to find a cuddly human to do that with. Are you good at snuggling? Maybe you could be my cuddly human.

      Location: Miami, FL
      Posted Breed: Beagle (medium coat). Small Senior Beagle Hi! They call me Rocky V. Maybe it's because I'm such a striking dude. Or maybe it's because I act like a tough guy through my cage. I had to grow thick skin when I was abandoned by my family. Because it hurted me lots. It still does. But just between us, the tough-guy act is only pretend. When I get out of my kennel, I'm so happy, I can't hide it. I'll play with anyone... you, your dog... anyone! Anyway, I'm a senior, but I honestly don't feel like one at all. Well, except for right now I kind of do, but only because Paws 4 You did a surgery on my back or my hips or something like that. I don't remember, but it hurts all over. Paws 4 You is nice to dogs like me that have nowhere else to go. I'm doing physical therapy now, so I'm going to be all better! But they say it would be a lot better for my therapy (and me!) if I was in a home... Do you have a home you could share with me?
