Posted Breed: German Wirehaired Pointer / Boxer / Mixed. Xander is an adorable Heinz 57 dog. He is a mixed with some serious cuteness and is a lovable goofball. Xander LOVES people. He is a true people dog. He loves to snuggle and loves being anywhere his humans are. He is completely potty trained. He can also be totally trusted to be left in the house unattended and has never been destructive. He loves to go for walks, but he needs someone willing to continue to work with him on his leash manners and leash training. He's making progress, but still needs work. He can get quite anxious and nervous in new situations or in areas where there is a lot going on and he needs a home that is willing to work with him through some of his anxieties. He loves to play with toys and run in the yard. Xander currently lives with 4 other dogs and would love a home where he can have another playful dog as a buddy and playmate. He would do best in a home with no kids or older kids, as he does dart through open doors and has been known to take himself on little field trips around the neighborhood if given the chance to escape through the front door. Xander is a smart boy, and he needs a secure yard where he will not be left unattended. If given enough time alone, Xander will figure out how to escape from most fences. He particularly knows how to climb a chain link fence or get through a wooden fence if given the opportunity and is not being watched. A home with a tall vinyl fence would be ideal for him, and the yard must be secure. Even at his age, Xander has a lot of energy and needs a home that will keep him active with daily walks, runs, and/or play time with a canine buddy. Xander is very good in the house and is generally pretty quiet, but can be a bit barky when the doorbell rings. He has a great "off" switch and loves to snuggle with his people whenever possible. Xander must be in a home with NO cats! He finds them way too tempting to not chase them and try to get them. Xander is a happy, go-lucky, cheerful dog and he has such a sweet, gentle nature to him. He's one of the sweetest dogs you'll ever meet and is waiting patiently for his perfect forever home! Xander goes to Train Walk Poop & for daycare & training & he does great!

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New 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.

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Snuffleupagus, or Snuffy, is a very sweet, 55lb, 9 year old Australian Cattle Dog / Labrador Retriever mix, who is looking for a family to spend his golden years with. Snuffy doesn’t ask for much in life, just a comfy dog bed to cuddle in, some treats and some time in the grass and sun. He has elbow dysplasia and moves a little slow but he still has plenty of spunk. He loves to play with toys and balls and hang around other dogs. He would love a quiet family with people to love on. Snuffy does well with other calm dogs, who don't mind a big lovable shadow following them around from time to time. He will do fine in a house with cats and small animals, as he shows no interest in them. He will be good in a home with kids, as long as they will respect his space and pace. He is on daily medications for his dysplasia, which help him tremendously. Snuffleupagus is house trained, crate trained, walks well on leash and is just an all around awesome guy! *Dogs are not placed on a first come first serve basis. We strive to find the perfect home for each animal. Applications may take up to 48 hours to process.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Chunky Monkey is looking for her soulmate. She likes to chase her tennis balls and stuffed animals around the backyard and would love to find someone who loves to play. But she also likes to curl up on the couch and watch a movie while having her head pet. Chunky Monkey is a sensitive young dog and is still learning some of the basics. She is kenneled trained but is still working on house breaking. She spent her first two years being an outside dog and is still learning the ropes of being a companion. Chunky Monkey is currently working on sit and lay down. She is eager to please. She does mostly fine with dogs and likes to chase cats in a playful way. She would be best in a house with older children as she doesn't know her own strength and is possessive with her toys and bones.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Hi, I’m Blu and I am 12 years old. I’m a long-legged 8-pound shiny black male Chi. I’m very sweet, but need a little time to feel totally safe with you. I do love to be gently scratched on the back of my neck and will tap you with my foot for a rub. I love my human(s) so very much! I’m generally very protective of my home, so when you have workmen there, just pick me up and hold me so that I know you are in charge (not me). I am a very confident boy and am fine with weather-related sounds. Even though I don’t have many teeth (only 3 molars on the bottom), I still a good eater and like dry food with a little water added. For my perfect family, I need to be in a quieter household. I’d be great as an “only” dog or with other CALM dog(s). I’m completely house trained and crate trained. I currently sleep in my foster mom’s bed at night, but am in no way a bed hog. I’m still very spry (and playful), but I will need stairs or a cube to get on/off your bed. I don’t bark in the yard, but I do alert bark at the evil postman or whoever comes knocking (again, just pick me up)! I can live anywhere; I will just need to learn to do my business on a leash if you don’t have a fenced yard. And by the way, I have very nice leash manners. In the spirit of transparency, I do have a Level 4 heart murmur. It really doesn’t bother me. CAWS had an ultra-sound done and test results showed that my heart is still strong and I’m as adoptable as any other dog. I just recently started taking daily doses of inexpensive heart medication to ensure my heart remains strong. Won’t you overlook this small medical condition and pick me? I am a sweet older gentleman, with a huge personality, looking for my very own calm family to watch over.

Odin is blind and diabetic. He takes insulin and gets eye drops twice a day which he takes like a champ. His blindness isn't a problem as once he gets the lay of the house he moves around very well. Odin isn't really potty trained in his old age. He wears a diaper or belly band most of the time. If let outside frequently he will go to the bathroom out there most of the time. He has an adorable bark and gets very excited when you get home. Odin gets along great with the other dogs and cats in the home.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Kemp, aka "Cheewoowoo" is a 6 year old Chihuahua who loves his people. He loves to squish next to them and snuggle. He even wraps his neck across them to show how much he cares. Cheewoowoo is a happy little guy that loves to go for walks and rides in the car. He's a pretty good walker, and walks daily with his foster family. He has no problem keeping up. Cheewoowoo is very vocal and growls sometimes. He even does it when he's getting a head rub. He can get a bit crabby though so young children are best off not around him.... although he does not dislike them. He has an eleven year old human foster sister that he absolutely adores. He sits next to her and sleeps in her bed. At night he pulls a blanket over himself and drifts off to sleep. Cats are a little too interesting to him so he needs a home without them. Kemp is fine with other dogs, but since he's so people oriented, he doesn't need a dog brother or sister. Kemp will be your best friend for life, give you daily hugs, and keep you company:) If you are interested in adopting a CAWS pet, please fill out an online application at http://caws.org/adoption-application

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Meet Mr. Bean, your typical, uncivilized (yet strangely charming), Royal Chihuahua! Bean is 5 years old and weighs 6 pounds. Bean is looking for a calm and quiet home with minimal to no traffic. He thinks other dogs (big and small) are quite the bother and would prefer to banish them from his existence. He is very much a ladies man and will go to the ends of the earth to protect his precious maiden. Once he has the preferred Bean-defined time to learn the love language of his person he is fiercely loyal! He asks this of his potential adopter- Do you have a quiet palace where he can reside undisturbed and peacefully? Will he be the ONLY apple of your eye? Due to his royal status he will require time to become comfortable with sharing space, will you have the patience? (Bean has likely been an only dog in his past home and has not had much if any socialization. He prefers women over men and does not enjoy other dogs. He will need a quiet place, with extra time to warm up and adjust, where there is minimal or no people traffic. No children and preferably someone who is home most of the day. He is a special dog who will need a special home. Would that happen to be you and your home?) Thank you for considering a rescue dog! *Dogs are not placed on a first come first serve basis.
