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: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Walnut is a sweet medium sized boy who is probably a Lab mix and is around one year old. He was brought to the shelter as a stray. Walnut is a high energy, very active boy who absolutely LOVES to run and play. Walnut is also very sleek and strong and is extremely very agile. He has a sweet personality and loves people...loves affection, but his energetic behavior may be a bit too much for small children or elderly or handicapped people. He needs a home where he will have plenty of room to run and play and someone who will run and play with him. Some obedience and agility training might work wonders with this sweet boy. Walnut will be kept at the shelter until his stray hold expires unless he is reclaimed by his owner first. If he is not reclaimed, he will be made available for adoption. For more information regarding sweet Walnut, please call the shelter at (256)771-7889. To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Charlene was surrendered to the shelter by her owner along with her companion, Penelope, with whom she is very tightly bonded. Both of these girls are absolutely terrified in the shelter, but the owner says they are both very sweet. They cower and try to keep as much distance as possible between them and anyone who approaches them, but they don't appear aggressive as a result of their fear, and when approached cautiously and patiently they will hesitantly submit to being petted. I spent a bit of time with them and was eventually able to pet them. I didn't see any sign of aggression during the time I was with them, but they do need to be approached and cared for very carefully and with patience and understanding, until they adjust to new surroundings. It has to have been very traumatic for them to have been given up by the only family they have ever known. These two girls each have a lot of potential to become loving and loyal pets and companions if they are given the opportunity to overcome their fears. There are precious, sweet, loving souls hiding beneath the fearful appearance and temporary scared behavior of these little girls.

      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.
