Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Bulldog / Mixed. Hello! My name is Mabel, and my foster mom says that I have a heart of gold! I was surrendered to a local pound because my previous home said they, "didn't have time for me anymore". I am house and crate trained, and I walk well on my Gentle Leader head collar - unless I see something I want to chase, and then you better hold on tight - I am very strong! I know some basic obedience, but I would really love for someone to take me back to school so I can learn even more. I like to chase balls, love chewing on my Nylabone and enjoy snuggling on the couch. My foster mom says that I listen well and would make a great companion. Check out my cool video! Please come and meet me so I can find someone to snuggle with! Mabel is a wonderful girl. She can get a little "mouthy" (grabby with her mouth) at times when she is excited, but listens well. Mabel would do best as an only dog in a home. Please e-mail or call us at 715-468-7784 to find out more about this special dog.

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.

      Haley

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Setter / Mixed. Haley is a beautiful senior lab/setter mix who still enjoys a good game of fetch and then to flop down for a nap. She is a very loving dog looking for her own special forever home. Haley is house trained and does well with other dogs and cats. This wonderful dog has a very sad history. Before Haley came into our organization she had lived in two previous homes. Both of these homes had "returned" Haley to the humane society from which we rescued her. Haley suffers from a condition known as separation anxiety. This is a treatable condition and Haley is well worth the time, patience and training needed to help her. Haley is participating in the Rush to Rescue program, so she is currently being fostered by a pair of offenders at the Rush City Correctional Facility. While there, she will be attending a training program with a certified trainer and will be working on her commands with her handlers. Please contact us to find out more about Haley and to meet this loving dog. **Photo generously donated to Rescued Tails by Posers Photography at www.posersphoto.com.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Chyna, and everyone says that I am a cute little peanut (about 50 pounds). I love people, and I am house and crate trained. I am very strong and athletic, and I need an active person who will have patience with me to keep me happy. I absolutely LOVE TO PLAY BALL! I listen very well, and I am doing great in my training classes. I need to be an only dog in the home right now (but I think I like cats), and I want someone to continue with my obedience training - I am very smart! Please e-mail us or call 715-468-7784 to find out more about Chyna. She is a great dog who deserves a great home. Chyna needs physical and mental exercise to be happy.

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Sweet Rocco had been living at a local land fill for over a month! He was so scared and would run away when people tried to help him - no one could catch him. We borrowed a live trap, and within two days the little guy was caught. Rocco is now safe here with us, and he is doing well. He is meeting new people, dogs and cats and is gaining confidence (overly excited dogs can be a little much for him). Rocco is a petite little guy (around 50 ponds) who is house trained and loves car rides. He listens well and loves to play with squeaky toys. Rocco has really bonded with us, and it appears as though he has some separation anxiety - he does not want to be contained, and he does not want to be left alone - he has climbed six foot tall fences to find us. We are currently working with him on his anxiety issues and he is responding well. Rocco would do best in a quiet home with someone who understands separation anxiety. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about this very special dog.

      Micki

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Micki is a wonderful dog who absolutely loves every person she meets. She is also good with kids and does well with cats. Micki can be very reactive to other dogs, and has gone through training to help with that issue, but needs to be an only dog in a home. Micki has been through several basic obedience classes, as well as some specialty classes to help her with impulse control. She is very treat-motivated and eager to please. Some of the commands she knows include "sit", "down", "stay", "come" and "place". She walks with a gentle leader, but is still working on heeling nicely. One of Micki's most favorite activity is to play fetch, and she would play it all day long if she could. She is extremely athletic and very focused on the ball. Micki likes to go swimming, especially if it includes fetching a stick. She also likes to play with toys, but gets a little too excited at the sound of anything that squeaks. While in the house, Micki is very well-behaved and is just happy to be with her people. She also loves to go on car rides and is a great co-pilot.

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. See King's HomepageGo to our official websiteKing is a happy, young dog who has a real zest for life. He loves being around people and being the center of attention, but also can entertain himself with his toys. King's favorite toy is his jolly ball and he loves running around the yard with it in his mouth. He also enjoys playing a game of fetch. King gets along well with other dogs, although his enthusiasm can be a little much for some of the less playful ones, or the seniors. King has shown some curiosity with cats, but has been able to be called away from them. He doesn't show any aggression towards them, but may be a little rough when trying to play with them. King loves humans of all ages and sizes, but due to his size and exhuberance, he should not be placed in a home with small children. He is being fostered in a home in MN. King has taken some obedience classes and knows some commands, including "sit", "down", "stay", "wait" and "come". He is also working on his impulse control. King loves to go for long walks and does well with his gentle leader once the initial excitement has worn off. King gets excited when he sees objects that are moving, such as cars, bikes and children, so he is working on sitting and focusing on his person instead of the movement. King is crate-trained and house-trained.
