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: Poodle (Miniature)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Wilkie is a very special little boy who would love to shower you with affection and devotion. Wilkie was nearly killed before we were able to get a volunteer to bail him out of the shelter. He had been abandoned by his family, who had clearly neglected him for some time. Wilkie had a horrible skin infection, likely as a result of untreated fleas, eye and ear infections, and achey joints from sleeping on concrete. This darling boy deserved better! We got Wilkie the very best vet care, and an amazing foster mom. His skin infection cleared up, and his beautiful fur grew back. He has limited vision, but can maneuver around his foster home just fine. Wilkie will need inexpensive medication for arthritis, and we'll provide the adopter with a 3 month supply. Wilkie is a sweet, loving little boy who deserves to finally be treated well! He's only 8 yrs old, and has a long life ahead of him! He is quiet, well behaved and devoted. He gets along well with other dogs, and is friendly to everyone he meets. Wilkie is a wonderful dog, and will make a great addition to any home. He'd do best with someone who is home a lot, like anyone who is retired or works from home. Wilkie weighs 22 lbs, is neutered, fully vaccinated including rabies, and chipped. If you'd like to meet Wilkie, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $200
