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.

      Breed: Doberman Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: Athens, AL
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Mixed. Kate, is one of four very rambunctious "puppies" who were found wandering alongside a road and were picked up and brought to the shelter as strays. All four of these "little ones" are very active and playful. Assuming they are all siblings, there may have been more than one sire involved in producing the litter, because of some different physical characteristics. Kate appears to be more of a Lab mix, and has the personality of a Lab puppy. She is a very happy girl, and is content to eat, play, and sleep (not necessarily in that order). These four will be rather large dogs when they are grown. They will be held at the shelter until they are reclaimed by their owner, or until their stray hold expires, at which time they will be made available for adoption. For more information regarding Kate, please contact the shelter at (256)771-7889.. To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Athens, AL
      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.
