Posted Breed: Bulldog / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Diamond is a sweet girl who was left homeless when her mom was evicted. The kind landlords took her in and fell in love with this sweetie, but Diamond is struggling to get along with all of the dogs in the household. We're hoping to find a forever home with folks that will love her just the same as her rescuer. Diamond is friendly and gets along great with the people. She is quite content in her friendship with one of the household dogs - Lupe - and they play for long periods. When Lupe needs a nap Diamond entertains herself with a Nylabone. She also doesn't seem to mind cats; she initially required some guidance on boundaries, but is now doing great with them. Diamond is best suited for an active adopter(s) who will provide daily activity and some routine training exercises. She is a smart girl, so it is important to exercise both her body and brain. Age: 2 y/o Weight: 50 lbs Temperament: Good with people/kids, some dogs and cats Training: House and crate-trained Vetting: Spayed, up to date on all shots, microchipped, heartworm negative Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application. We look forward to hearing from you. Doggie Harmony's adoption fee is $175. To ensure we're meeting both pet and adopters' needs, we ask potential adopters to complete an application and later, bring the adoptable to their home for a preliminary visit. If you would like to proceed with the application, please click Adoption Applicationnow.

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.

      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Klutch would do best in a calm home with no kids. He loves MEN more so than women -- loves to play and jump around with them, but turns on his quiet side with the ladies. This handsome lad seeks a family who will keep him exercised and give him the boundaries and training that he needs to be a perfect companion. He is happy to learn new tricks for treats and affection. Klutch landed in the shelter as part of a neglect case and was stuck there for three months before his foster 'liberated' him. He is an awesome dog who deserves a loving and forever family.

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed. Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Cherilee is a very sweet little girl once she warms up and trusts someone. This will take a few weeks, and unlike most Min Pins, she is not one to readily take treats at first. She will spend most time in her crate or safe space needing people not to push themselves upon her. Once she is comfortable, she loves to play hard and then crash. Playing her way involves running and bouncing off furniture. It may involve a game of chasing human hands that move across a couch or floor as well. While there are other dogs in her foster home, she tends to play solo. Cherilee is house-trained and will let someone know when she needs to go outside by running to the door and back to the person. Sometimes she’ll stand at the door or put her front paws on it. She is also crate trained if a treat is involved and does well in her crate when left alone. When someone is home, she will probably be found under a blanket somewhere in typical Min Pin burrowing fashion. Please note that Cherilee does require a home in GA so her foster mom can provide support as she transitions. She also needs a fenced yard, as she's terrified to walk on a leash. Cherilee will do best in a calm household with a woman as her caregiver since she is afraid of men. Whomever adopts her must possess patience and a willingness to work with her to overcome her fears. People with Min Pin experience and/or experience with fearful dogs willing to make this girl for part of their family are the ideal candidate. Updates will be made as her behavior changes. If you feel she might be a good fit for your home, please email foster with any questions - alyssajolley@comcast.net Age: 3 Years Old Weight: 12 Pounds Temperament: Gets along with small dogs only. Training: Housetrained and crate-trained Vetting: Spay/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Margie Sue loves to sunbathe and stroll around the yard in the warm morning sun. She likes to sleep covered up and knows how to cover herself up if you're too tired to tuck her in. She gets along very well with dogs and people of all kinds. Margie is a super-easy gal who is lovable to all who meet her. She's been patiently awaiting her second lease on life since her family surrendered her to a county shelter. Though confused as to why they sent her away after giving them all of her love, she promises it won't stop her from giving you her whole heart! Sweet Margie often forgets she's a little larger than a true rat terrier, we say she's just big-boned (or mixed with a bit of hound). When it comes to selecting a bed, her favorite is usually the smallest one. Age: 7 years Weight: 40 lbs Temperament: Gets along with dogs, older kids, can be cat tested upon request Training: House trained, crate trained, leash trained Vetting: Spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application.

      Breed: Golden Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Yellow Labrador Retriever / Golden Retriever / Mixed (long coat). Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. **SEEKING SANCTUARY SETTING - PLEASE READ FULL BIO BELOW BEFORE CONTACTING US** We know he’s handsome enough that everyone will want him, but this stunning guy needs a special home with a dog-savvy type who also have interest in training or significant experience with abused, fear-aggressive dogs. Tater's ideal home would include calm, quiet acreage, perhaps a nice farm life as he has been exposed to animals of all kinds and is reasonably respectful. Unfortunately, Tater currently resides in Atlanta and farms, much less experienced dog homes are quite hard to come by here. While we'd love to find him a home here, so he can continue to work with his current trainers, we encourage out-of-state applicants with significant training experience or a willingness to hire a local trainer. Despite his behavioral challenges, we do believe Tater would be a loyal friend to the patient type of dog lover(s), who are willing to kind of ignore him at first and earn his trust gradually. He will let you know when he is starting to trust and feels ready to be the carefree dogs that exists deep inside. Trust is earned with Tater, but he can be a true retriever when he's finally at ease. Tater was adopted from a county animal control as a pup and unfortunately, abused. Neighbors witnessed him being struck by both his adopter and her children. From there, he went to a couple of other ‘not quite right’ foster homes that may have added to his insecurity. Sadly, Tater looks at every new person as a potential threat until they prove otherwise, and he is absolutely terrified of children. Even the sound of their voices stresses him out. A calm, child-free home/yard/neighborhood is key to his success. We've seen socialization training work very well for dogs like Tater and see him as a young fella, destined to blossom, but he needs someone willing to give a dog a chance! Please apply if you might e the one. Age: 3 y/o Weight: 65-70 lbs Temperament: Gets along with dogs and cats, but child-free home required Training: Housetrained, crate-trained, obedience-trained; free training Vetting: Spay/neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative You can apply to foster at: https://bit.ly/DH-Fosters Of course a permanent home is even better!

Leon is currently attending training at Frogs to Dogs in Kirkwood to help him adjust to life as a tripaw and to continue his socialization with people and pups alike.
