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.

      Age: Adult

She is learning about toys and treats and is starting to come out of her shell. She is in a foster home, and uses a potty pad. She takes comfort in the company of other dogs, so will need a home with another small dog. S he is a very nice dog. Little dogs do not usually like to potty in rain, tall grass, heat, cold or any other yet unknown condition they find unsuitable. If "housebroken" is important to you, please consider another dog.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Cookie is an older (8 years or more - est DOB 2008), Pitt Bull/Labrador mix....the shelters are filled with dogs like her, and most are never rescued or adopted. Something about her pleading eyes and quiet smile caught our attention, and even though we know finding the right home for her will not be easy, she deserves a peaceful retirement. She appears to be good with other dogs, and is on a weight loss program. She was morbidly obese when we rescued her from the shelter.

      rescue
      Breed: Beagle
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Adeline is a female Beagle, who is estimated to be 8 years old (est. DOB 2008). She is adorable and chubby, with a heart of gold. She needs a good friend to take her on walks to help her lose 10 pounds. She is a great dog who will fill your life with joy. UPDATE from her foster family: She is an absolute delight and is the perfect houseguest! She is completely house trained, good with other dogs and cats, loves to eat (not vegetables, though!) but has not shown signs of food aggression. She is very loving and loves to be up on the couch or in the bed with us, but is also content to be in a dog bed on the floor. She really loves playing with her stuffed animals, and thoroughly enjoys being outside. As far as her bad knee, we haven't really seen it slow her down. She loves to run around the backyard, go on walks, and play with the other dogs. There are some mornings where she seems a bit stiff or has a bit of a limp. I have given her a very small dose (1/4 pill for a dog her size) of tramadol on a few mornings where she was limping, but haven't had to do that in recent weeks. I think that the more exercise she's getting is helping to strengthen her muscles, or that's what I'm hoping! I can see how a lot of stairs would be tough on her, but she has no issues with the 4-5 we have going into the yard. She really is just the cutest thing and will make a perfect companion to a lucky person! Visit our site at http://www.heartwormproject.org/application and complete an application today!
