Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat).

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: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Mario, saved from possible euthanasia at the Franklin County Dog Shelter. Mario is neutered, up to date with vaccines and has been heartworm tested negative. He is also microchipped. Mario does know a few basic commands and is housetrained. He rides great in the car and seems to love all people. He can have the run of the house when you're not home. Mario is currently in a foster home with two other dogs. He is currently going to doggie daycare occasionally and does well there. Mario is about 2 years old and a good solid 50 lbs. He is a strong boy that needs to get out there and work. He plays hard and would do best with another well balanced dog that likes to do the same. He also likes to joke around and can make you laugh alot. Mario listens very well and corrects easily. Given his strength and size, a family with older, respectful children only. Mario does not do well with cats. If interested in Mario, please call Peggy @ 440-984-7014 or e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Amherst, OH
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Paco is our newest rescue, saved from a rural shelter in southern OH. He came into the shelter with two other dogs after his person went to jail. Paco seems to be fairly well adjusted and does know some basic commands. He is a little unsure and scared but with consistency and love, I am confident he will blossom. He is in a foster home with another dog and they seem to be doing fine. We are not yet sure about cats. We would like any children to be at least 10-12 years old. Paco is probably about three years old and currently is 37 lbs but could gain a few. He is just some kind of hound mix and that breed tends to excel in temperament. He appears to be housebroken and rides great in the car. If interested in Paco, please call Peggy @ 440-452-1619 or e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com.

      rescue
      Breed: Husky-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Amherst, OH
      Posted Breed: Husky / Mixed (medium coat). Thor is not yet ready for adoption but we wanted people to be able to see him and if interested and willing to wait until he is ready to find a home of his own. Thor will also need someone willing to work with him once they have him. He has absolutely no aggression but is close to being a feral dog. He is pretty much housetrained at this point. Thor lived his 3 1/2 years in a garage with many other dogs amongst their own urine and feces. They never left the garage or had human contact other than someone walking in and throwing food on the floor. He has some battle scars on his nose from the ugly conditions they were forced to endure. Thor is also blind in his right eye but the left eye is fine. He must have a home with a secure fenced in yard. More info to come as we have more to share. If interested in this beautify boy, e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com for call Peggy @ 440-452-1619.

      PIXIE & SKIT...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Amherst, OH
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Pixie and Skittles are the sweetest dogs. They were given up by their people who had them their whole lives due to their child having severe allergies to them. They were taken in by a foster in Oct of 2016 with thoughts of potentially adopting them. That person and I both agree that she cannot give them what they need. She is unable to walk them and they do need to be able to go for walks. They are both around 9 years old, one is female, Pixie and Skittles is the male. They are good with other dogs, great with cats and lived with a young child. Their only habit is they do bark at certain noises but some of that could be boredom and lack of exercise. Pixie and Skittles are both in excellent health and are current on their vaccines and heartworm prevention. They are spayed and neutered. They both weigh about 50 lbs and could lose a little weight, especially Pixie. They are friendly with everyone they meet. THEY ARE BONDED AND WE DO WANT TO KEEP THEM TOGETHER. We would also prefer a fenced in yard for them. They can be left with the run of the house while you work or are out running errands. Please contact Peggy at 440-984-7014 or e-mail hartmanshounds@gmail.com if you are interested in these two sweet dogs. They deserve their happy ending.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Amherst, OH
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). COURTESY POST: Contact ditrhdrescue@gmail.com Princess has been in the care of another rescue for almost 9 months now. She had been overbred, abandoned and then overlooked at the local kennel. She then found herself on the urgent list when they took her in. She literally had no clue what appropriate social behavior was. She just wanted to love everyone and every dog she saw. But,her approach was way too enthusiastic. Well, 9 months of patience and love,evaluations from trainers and consistent positive training is making her an excellent companion. Princess is 4-5 yrs old and loves all people. Her Tail is always wagging ( that's her trademark) and she shows everyone that the myth about pitbulls is just that,a myth. Princess is fully vetted and good with other dogs, older respectful kids, but, NO CATS Please. Contact ditrhdrescue@gmail.com

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Amherst, OH
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Greta is a Pit mix, around 4 years old, 53 pounds, housebroken and crate trained. She Is living with other dogs and cats and can be a little overwhelmed when she first meets other dogs, so would need a meet and greet to make sure the other dog is comfortable with her energy. She would do better with teenagers and adults- she sometimes plays a little too rough for small children. She's been going on weekly pack walks with other dogs and is doing great.
