More About Bulldog Breed
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.

      Marble

      rescue
      Breed: Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Mixed. Marble was turned in to the shelter by his owner. This poor, sweet big boy is absolutely terrified at being left at the shelter. Being left by his owner in a place that is totally alien to him and is very noisy and frightening has resulted in him being understandably frightened and depressed. Marble is a very handsome boy, but the dingy dirtiness of his coat, especially the white part, would seem to indicated that he has been kept outside in dirty conditions. Witnessing his frightened behavior is truly sad and disheartening, but with the love, patience and compassion of a new home and family, his true loving self will be revealed. He doesn't care for cats, but he really does need and deserve a chance to live and be happy. For more information regarding Marble, please contact the shelter at (256)771-7889.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Lauren was turned in to the shelter by her owner. She is a very sweet, calm, and gentle Lab/shepherd mix with a curious nature and a happy temperament. Lauren seems confused in the shelter, but that is understandable, since she was given up by probably the only owner/master she has ever known. This precious, mature girl's gentle nature and calm presence would probably make her a good companion and pet for a family with children or with more senior members. One thing is for certain..., she is a sweetheart! For more information regarding sweet Lauren, please call the shelter at (256)771-7889.

      Adele

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adele was brought to the shelter as a stray. She is a very frightened, shy Labrador retriever/bulldog mix who is very cautious in allowing physical contact. She has shown no signs of aggression, but she behaves more as if she may have been handled/treated roughly over a period of time by someone before she was brought to the shelter. She likes treats, and accepts them gently and with gratitude. Adele is a very sweet girl once she feels that she can trust you, and she has a lot of love to share with her new person or family if she is eventually adopted, but she does need a family that will be patient with her and treat her with love, kindness, and patience. For more information regarding this sweet girl, please call the shelter at (256)771-7889. To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Eleanor is a very sweet, but also very frightened shepherd mix who was turned in to the shelter by her owner. This girl is confused and depressed by the turn of events that landed her at the shelter. She shies away from contact until she realizes that you are not going to hurt her, but she does eventually warm up to your closeness and accepts gentle petting and gentle encouragement. Sweet Eleanor will really open up and reveal her true loving and loyal self once she is away from the shelter and has had just a little time to adjust to being in her new forever home with a family that loves her and treats her with compassion and kindness.

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed. Oliver was turned in to the shelter by his owner. He is a very sweet, gentle, medium sized boy with a calm temperament. Oliver has an alert disposition and a really handsome face. He loves treats, but he accepts them with a soft mouth. This is really a great dog with a lot of potential as a pet and companion. He was turned in along with his mate, Mireya, and two of their puppies, so it would seem that he gets along well with other dogs. He has not yet been tested with other dogs with whom he is unfamiliar, though, so he would need to be tested before being adopted into a home with other animals. Just look at that sweet, handsome face, though. How can one not fall in love with this boy? For more information regarding Oliver, please call (256)771-7889.For further information on this dog, you may contact the Athens Limestone Animal Shelter at 256-771-7889.
