Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Hello there! My name is Georgia, and I am very pleased to be able to tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a show-stopping (if I do say so myself...) 4 year old Boxer mix AND I'm a registered Canine Good Citizen! All the nice folks at Buffalo Cares keep saying the nicest things about me, and my goodness it's enough to make a girl blush... My foster mom is always telling me that I'm "as pretty as a peach" and then she kisses me on my nose (which I really like - just don't tell foster mama that because she won't stop). I have to honestly also say that I am a very good cuddler and I adore just being near my favorite people. Even though I hesitate to brag here - because it is un-becoming for a lady - all of my friends at Buffalo Cares are always complimenting me on how well mannered I am; just like a real Soutern Belle! Why I've even been to "finishing school" . This fine finishing school is called K9 Connection, and it is one of the best training facilities for dogs in the whole wide world I think (and the nice teachers there say I can even keep coming to school after I find my forever home! How special is that?!) Because of this awesome training I can walk politely at your side on a leash, and I will stop and sit and look at you when you stop walking. Also, I know how to go to my "place" and wait there until you tell me to take a break; and I know how to sit, lay down, & take treats nicely just like a polite girl should. My closest friends have only 2 legs, and I would prefer to be the only 4-legged family member in my forever home please. And while I do adore people, I would do best with children over 10. I just love to be pampered and fussed over, and really I have so much love in me that I could fill even that whole big beautiful mansion called Tara from "Gone With The Wind." But I don't need a mansion to make me happy; I just need someone like you to love.....So what do y'all think? Could I be your very own little sip of Southern Comfort? I will keep your heart warm and bring a smile to your lips forever and ever so.....what are you waiting for? Apply for me today! Georgia's adoption fee is $175 (thanks to a generous sponsor) + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course. Georgia comes with free classes from K9 Connection. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered. If interested in learning more or adopting please fill out an application on our website at www.buffalocares.org.

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: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Secret and I am a young American Staffordshire Terrier mix female. I came to Buffalo all the way from North Carolina and have been adjusting to the colder temps here! I currently live with my foster mom, two young children, and several cats. I get along well with other dogs, however, will need a cat free home as I am too excited around them! I am working on basic commands and currently know "sit" and "down". My favorite things to do is take long walks to practice my leash behavior and play with toys. I also enjoy running around the backyard and have lots of love to give! Secret's adoption fee is $225 + $50 training deposit which is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Hi my name is Jade! I am a beautiful 5 year old Shepherd. I spent the first part of my life outside but I've been learning to live the good life in a home with my foster family! I love attention and to have some fun! I'm a stunning girl and I just love to run and play. I love other dogs and people, but no kitties please. I have no shortage of energy so if you're looking for someone to hike or exercise with, I'm your gal. I love car rides and a good adventure. I'm house broken and crate trained. Now, I'm looking for someone to spend the rest of my years with - could it be you? Jade's adoption fee is $225. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Maya is a retriever mix who came to us all the way from Columbia and is very glad to be here! Maya was hit by 2 cars and was paralyzed for a time but she didn't let that bother her- she dragged her self with her front legs. She was given some treatment and in time was able to walk. Now she runs around the house and enjoys going for walks (especially when its warm out!). Maya is a special dog looking for a family who will be patient with her incontinence issues (from her injury). She currently lives with 2 adult humans , 2 dogs, and 3 cats (but the cats are separate due to one of the other dogs). She is a very sweet girl and is friendly with everyone she has met on her walks. Unless she has something to say she is quiet dog and will rub against you for attention which she can not get enough of. Maya loves food, playing with toys, and soft blankets. If you think you could be the right person - apply today! Maya's adoption fee is $225. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

I am currently training in Agility and I LOVE it! I’m housebroken and neutered. I am also crate trained. I’m current on all my vaccinations and healthy. I only ask that I’m the only dog in the home. I don’t want to have to share your attention! I am currently fostered at Canine Academy. I would love to find a place to call my own! Rock is a courtesy post.
