Posted Breed: Mastiff / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Winston is very sweet, affectionate, and eager to please; he loves car rides. He is very athletic and would make an excellent running or cycling partner. He is smart and capable of laser-like focus. He is easily motivated to train with either food or toys. He knows sit, down, place, look, come, stand, out, leave it and heel. He loves to play tug and can play fetch for days. Winston is an absolutely amazing dog but he will need a very special adopter. The ideal adopter will need to have experience with dogs. Winston requires constant structure and guidance to reap all he has to offer.

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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Boston, MA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Reese is your typical, beautiful hound dog. She loves going on long walks, running around the yard, and she loves car rides!! She is a chewer so any stick or toy she can find she will play with for hours, but she does not like to share so if there are other dogs in the home it's best to let them have their own toy time. Reese is a very shy girl, you need to earn her trust. She is looking for someone to show her love and patience. Once she knows she is safe she is the sweetest girl!! This goes for humans and dogs. Her perfect family will be people who can give her enough time and space to become the wonderful pup she has become in her foster home!

      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Boston, MA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Lilac is a very sweet girl! She loves to play with other dogs, and she's a great snuggler. Her favorite thing to do is run around the yard with her foster siblings, and then curl up on the couch afterwards. She can be a little bit shy and skittish at times, but once she knows you well, she's all in! Lilac loves kids, but a lower-key home with older kids or no kids would be best for her. She would love to have a doggie sibling to play with, since she does much better when there are other pups around! She's housebroken, crate trained, knows all her commands and walks great on a leash. If you're looking for the total package, you won't find a better pup that Little Miss Lilac!

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (long coat). Hi, I'm Blanche! I'm a bundle of energy and will do best with an active family. I love to go running, so I would love a family that hikes or jogs. I get along well with dogs and cats, but can be mouthy when I get excited so older kids would be better. I love to chase after a ball, and any kind of hugs and kisses. I'm a fence climber so I would do best in a home where I am being walked on a leash or being monitored while outside in a fenced in yard. I'm a smart dog and learn very quickly. I will need a strong forever family committed to keeping me engaged and willing to work with me on some more training. I am already awesome with basic commands!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I'm Bess! I have a gorgeous silky coat and an incredibly sweet personality to match! I am ok with dogs my size or larger. In general, I prefer males! I can be a little energetic so probably would do better in a home without small children. I earned my Canine Life and Social Skills B.A. Level certification which includes skills such as sit, stay, wait for the food bowl, come and loose leash walking. I would love to go for a romp with you in the yard, on a hike, and equally enjoy snuggling on the couch and having my ears scratched!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I'm Daisy! I am a purebred American Staffordshire Terrier with a sweet personality and electric eyes. I love to run around outside, but I can sit still in a kayak too. I like to cuddle with my human family, and I'm very friendly with new people and kids. Dogs are cool too, but I don't like sharing a home with one. I'm not sure how I feel about cats as I'm really excited when I see one, but they don't seem to want to play with me. I'm looking for an active human who will take me on lots of adventures, play tug-of-war with me, and teach me new tricks! In exchange, I'll be the most well-behaved, the most loyal, and the sweetest dog you've ever known. I can't wait to meet you!

      rescue
      Breed: Mountain Cur-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Boston, MA
      Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Mixed. Loki is a love of a dog and shows significant affection to those who care for him and those whom he trusts. He does get nervous around people he does not know (especially men) but, once he knows you, he will love you! Loki loves to play fetch, run around in the yard, and his favorite past time: Playing in the yard with the sprinkler and hose, which he'll often do for hours! (In winter, he loves the snow!) He would thrive in a home where he has a yard to play in and/or someone to play with him. He also loves and has thrived at doggie socials and doggie daycare, where he can stay active and play; he really enjoys playing with other dogs. Loki does enjoy being the center of a loving parent's world; he will shower you with kisses, put his toys in your lap to play, and fall asleep in your lap. Loki has successfully undergone 4+ months of obedience training, and his trainer has said that Loki's quick learning and understanding of commands is on-par with dogs that are trained to be service dogs. He is a very intelligent dog who thrives with structure, routine, and loves to be praised for doing well. Loki understands the commands: heel, sit, down, crate, bed, stay, leave it -- and when on a leash, he will look to his owner for a command before entering doorways or jumping into a car. He responds well to doggie cookies as a reward for doing a great job! At this point in Loki's training, he would benefit significantly from regular socialization with humans he does not know, and additional obedience training with 'distractions' (i.e., getting Loki to focus on the command vs. the thing that makes him anxious -- loud noises, strangers).
