Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). In her own words: I was saying to myself just this morning "Venus, you know what you need? You need a person all your own." So I sat down to write this post for the nice people at HOPE, because apparently that's the kind of thing they do - find nice people for extremely intelligent and lovable furbabies. I shudder to type this, but I'M LAPLESS! That's right, I have no lap to call my own. Could you be persuaded to volunteer yours? I can't wait to see my forever home! If you are interested in Venus and would like to fill out a Dog Adoption Application, please go to: http://www.homelesspets.net/adoption-forms/dog-adoption.php . Submitting an application does not obligate you to adopt from us but it initiates contact with us and gets the process started. If you have questions prior to filling out the application, email us at hope@homelesspets.net and a volunteer will get back to you.

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: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: HOUSTON, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Skipper! What a friendly, energetic, charming, and loving young man. We think he may be part Deer Head Chihuahua because he is a bit taller than your average Chi (he’s kind of all legs!) and his head doesn’t really look like an apple :-) He loves to play with his chew toys, wrestle with his canine siblings, and snuggle in our laps or under the covers. Skip needs brother(s) or sister(s) who like to goof around as much as he does playing tug of war or chase. We have not seen him around cats so we’re not sure how he would react, but we suspect he would just want to play with them too! He loves to go on walks and is a bit notorious for scooting out an open door. If no one is around to play with, he can pass the time carrying his toys from one end of the house to the other or throwing them up in the air. Sometimes just snoozing in a lap is a great way for him to spend his time. He does love his people! He’s crate trained and house-trained; can sit, stay, and hop in his crate to eat dinner. There is an old injury that was not properly treated so he has a bit of a limp, but you wouldn’t know it most times because it doesn’t slow him down! Skipper is a smart little guy and aims to please. When he looks at you with those big, loving, brown eyes, it just melts your heart! Approx. DOB: May, 2016, Weight: 15 lbs.

For example, she has plenty of playgroup experience, and she excels at zooming around the yard. However, she also enjoys just sitting in the yard bird watching or watching the squirrels playing in the trees. She also has wonderful people skills. Turtle's specialties are snuggling, smiling and making human hearts grow three sizes. Turtle's favorite past time is just lying on the couch with her human & watching TV.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Mixed (medium coat). I am a gorgeous, friendly, energetic and unique fella. For a while, I was a solitary kind of guy with no family, just checking things out on my own and taking it easy. Then one night I had a run in with a UPS truck. He won and that’s how I became unique: I am now a tri-pod. My foster mom took me in, got me all fixed up, I learned to get by with just three legs and I am doing awesome! I LOVE to run, play and enjoy my new life completely. The only thing that would make it better would be to have a forever home of my own, hopefully with a canine sibling or two that I can play with; no cats please. I currently live with two older brothers but they don’t play very much and I get bored. I love to cuddle up next to my person on the couch, I’ll take all the tummy rubs I can get, and I even give kisses. I am crate trained and trained for a doggy door, walk on leash, but pull a bit. I love to chew on bones, toys, and I will chase a ball, but might not bring it back. I would love to be your awesome tri-pod ‘cause we don’t need no stinkin’ 4 legs !!!! Approx. DOB: Jan. 2014.
