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). Hello there! My name is Joey and, between you me and the wall, I know I've got that irresistible "hunk" thing going on. But I'll let you in on a little secret; on the inside I'm more of the "can I really give you my whole heart?" kind of guy. I like to take my time and get to know you ~ and once I love you I won't care if you're rich or good looking or can sing & dance. All I care about is the size of your heart, and if you'll make room in your life and home for me.... I'm a little over 2 years old, and still learning, but I am already housebroken and crate trained. Car rides and walks are some of my most favorite things. And I like to play with some doggie friends too; especially the pretty girls! I am going to group obedience classes (thank you K9 Connection!) and I am proud to say that I am an excellent student. I walk well on a leash, and know sit, down, place, wait and come. Because I do so well in basic obedience I am even able to go to something called Rally - which is where all the best dogs get to go to class! Pretty sweet - huh?! So if you're looking for a smart, handsome, sensitive fellow to be your BFF - I might just be the one! I would sure like to spend my whole life loving you <3 Joey's adoption fee is $225.00+ $50 training deposit that 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.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (medium coat). Winston is a small, funny dog with a big personality! He is around 3 years old and likes to play fetch with stuffed toys and balls, go for walks, and cuddle up to you. He loves his foster family deeply, however, requires some time to warm up to new people. Winston has been working hard on his training and will thrive in a family that will provide the structure and guidance he needs to be the best dog he can! He is housebroken and goes into his crate- but his favorite sleeping place is under the bed! He is friendly with other dogs and currently shares his foster home with a hound mix, a Shepard mix, and 3 cats. Winston likes to chase the cats though so they are kept separate, since they don't share the enthusiasm. He has never been around children that we know of and would do best in a quiet environment without lots of company. In exchange for your love, training, and wet food he promises to keep your chest warm and your yard free of squirrels and birds. He wants your approval and learns quickly. He is the perfect mix of sweet and spunky! What are you waiting for? Winston's adoption fee is $275 plus a $50 training deposit that 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: Foxhound (medium coat). Hi,hi, hi! My name is Amara and I am a fun-loving, goofy, 2-year-old purebred foxhound. Although my start to life wasn’t a great one, I am very trusting and love everyone I meet. You see, I came from a place they call a "puppy mill'. I was used for breeding and then dumped when I was no longer useful to them. I am very happy to be out of there and in a loving home. I am still learning how to adjust to life in a home and my foster mom says I am doing such a great job! I absolutely love my foster parents and my foster siblings. I love to romp around with my foster siblings and play with all types of toys. While I love my foster family, I cannot wait to find a family of my own. If you are interested in adding an adorable hound to your family please fill out an application. Amara's adoption fee is $325. 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 such a pretty girl, not to brag - but that's what everyone says who sees me! I am affectionate and calm. I'm a quiet gal who just loves to hang out on the couch with my humans. I like to go for walks and play with toys, when I'm not napping that is. I do well with the resident kitties in my foster home and I am well behaved for my baths. I am on the smaller and shorter side which makes me the perfect cuddle buddy. I am potty trained and crate trained and I know not to jump - just about perfect, or so my foster mom says! If you're looking for a sweet girl like me - apply today! Miracle's adoption fee is $175.

      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Hi there - my name is Ritchie! I am an affectionate guy that loves to snuggle, give kisses, and I even give the best hugs ever! Who doesn't love a good hug? I travelled all the way from the Bahamas to find my forever family, traded in the sand for some snow - and I don't mind it one bit. I know my basic commands like off, sit, leave it, and come and I'm also house broken. I like to take my time getting to know new folks, but once I learn to trust you we can be best friends, forever. I am what my foster mom calls a "tripawd" which I guess means I've got three legs, instead of 4. I had 4 until an unfortunate incident between myself and a car. It doesn't slow me down one but and I still enjoy running around the backyard just as much - but I sure don't waste anytime before curling up on the couch with my humans. I walk well on a leash but since I'm at a slight disadvantage, I prefer for them to be kept short and sweet. I am looking for love, patience, and a forever family of my own - could it be you? Ritchie'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: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello, I am Boomerang! I came up to Buffalo all the way from North Carolina in search of my forever family. I've been enjoying all the nice folks up here who are helping me along the way. I love to go for walks and to chew on bones and toys. My other favorite activities include having my ears rubbed and in general just being petted! I'm looking for my forever family, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the irony of me using the word "looking". You see - (there I go again), I'm sight impaired. I'm not entirely blind, but my sight is surely hindered - it doesn't bother me much since I've got a nose for sniffing and ears for hearing! I like being by my humans side or in the safety of my crate, I am housebroken and crate trained. Could I be the perfect match for you? Apply for me today! Boomerang's adoption fee is $175 + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course.

      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog (short coat). Hi! My name is Bosco! I'm a stunning young cattle dog and I've been told I give great kisses. I love affection, especially belly rubs. I like everyone I meet. I shouldn't brag, but I'm extremely smart. I thrive on attention and love to learn. I bet I'd do great in Rally Obedience. I quickly mastered sit, down, place and stay. Treats are wonderful and I always take them gently. I'm a little nervous around new things, like gates opening and closing, and loud noises sometimes startle me. I'm told my vision is impaired, but really sometimes things are just a little closer than I think. If you think you might like to be my mom or dad, please fill out an application today. I would love to meet you. Bosco'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.
