Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). If you are interested in adopting this dog, please download and complete an Adoption Questionnaire: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/s/2016applicationdocx-1.docx and email Kate at katesnyder33@yahoo.com You can also find the adoption questionnaire and learn about the adoption process by visiting our website: http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/howtoadopt/ Dog's Name: Valentino Estimated Breed: bassett/bulldog mix Approximate Age: 5 years Approximate Weight: Currently 58 lbs Currently Living at: Boarding Foster Valentino until he is adopted! Valentino the wonder boy! This stubby little guy is a feast on the eyes! What he lacks in stature, he makes up for in charisma. Valentino is very friendly, playful, and also a snuggler too. He wants all of your attention for himself so he should be the only pet in your home. He absolutely adores kids. Valentino has separation anxiety so he'd do best in a home where someone was around often. He also had Addisons Disease which requires monthly medication (about $20 a month). Can Valentino the Lover, waddle into your home and heart?? He is a true lap dog at 58lb! Your new pet may require a refresher in house-training but is likely crate-trained. K-9 Lifesavers recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and new owner. The adoption fee for this dog is $300, which includes basic vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, monthly flea/tick prevention, and transport costs. If interested in adopting, please download and complete an Adoption Questionnaire and email to us Kate at katesnyder33@yahoo.com FOSTER or ADOPT VALENTINO! Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home. For more information on becoming a foster parent, and our Foster Program, visit http://www.k-9lifesavers.org/foster/ or email our Foster Coordinator at foster@k-9lifesavers.org Sponsor a Dog! Sponsors help us provide additional medical treatment beyond basic vetting, and helps offset boarding costs when our foster homes are full.

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.
