Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Meet PEDRO..this little man was rescued from the Caroline County Animal Shelter. He is approx. 4-5 years and 10lbs. This little fella has obviously not lived a good life until now. He was quite skinny when he came to the rescue and had a ring around his neck where at some point he had a collar that was too tight and he had a chunk taken out of his tail. Pedro is truly a little lover boy! He just needs a quiet, patient owner willing to give him time to realize he is ok. He is very loving and loves to sit in your lap and be petted. Pedro does not like to be picked up but will go on leash with you where ever you want to go. He is housebroken & crate-trained. A small fenced yard is preferred but not necessary. Pedro is neutered, current on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped. Our online application can be found at www.hhk-9rescue.org by clicking the adoptions button at the top of the page. Local adoption preferred!

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.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Cattle Dog (short coat). Please contact Janet (jrmoncure@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Meet HONEY...this dog was seized by Animal Control in a neglect case...she was only 25 lbs, had lots of missing hair & raw skin, was loaded with intestinal parasites and heartworms. If you look at her last photo that shows what she looked like when brought into animal control. Between animal control and HHK-9 Honey has been brought back to full health and now she is so deserving of a loving home. Honey is 7 years old and is now a healthy 45-50lbs. She is so forgiving and just loves people. She would rather kiss you than eat! Honey is active and will need a fenced yard. She is cratetrained, does well on leash and likes car rides. Honey can be very picky with her doggie friends and loves playing with dogs she likes but doesn't like all dogs. We don't know if she had bad dog experience in her previous life. Honey is spayed, current on all shots, heartworm negative and microchipped. Please call her foster mom Janet at 804-746-1709 or email at jrmoncure@aol.com if you want to offer Honey the home she deserves.

She is taller then your average beagle but not by much. Chloe would be happiest as the only pet with a fenced yard to play in and just be a dog.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Meet ROSCOE...this sweet boy is looking to be the only pet in a home and needs a home now. Roscoe is approx. 2-3 years old and 50lbs. He has a sweet loving personality and does know some basic commands like sit, stay, wait. Roscoe has always been an indoor pet and part of a family. Sadly he just got so jealous of the other dog in the home that its just not working out anymore. The other dog is larger and has been in the home longer then Roscoe. He is very smart, eager to please you and very loyal. A secure fenced yard is preferred. Roscoe is neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on preventive.

Meet SQUIRT...this unique boy is thought to be a basset hound/lab mix. He has a short stocky body and a big head! Squirt is 4 years old and approx. 35lbs. He has lots of personality and loves people. Squirt MUST be the only pet. If your looking for lots of love in a short, stocky package then Squirt may be just what you are looking for. This little man is lots of muscle in a short body so would do best in a home without small children. Fenced yard required, 6ft preferred. Squirt is neutered, current on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped. Sorry but he is not a good choice for apartment living!

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Italian Greyhound / Mixed (short coat). Meet PAIGE...this sweet girl came to the rescue after being an unclaimed stray. Paige is a cute little thing! We think she is a beagle/italian greyhound mix due to her long narrow face & body style. Paige is 2 years old and 30lbs. She is a little shy but with a little love turns into a happy, playful puppy. Paige does need some leash work but has done great learning to do her business outside and use the doggie door. Paige is spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative and microchipped.

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Meet JOAN....this pretty girl was found as a stray with Melissa who is believed to be her daughter. Joan is a beagle mix, approx. 6 years old and 35lbs. She is a happy soul who loves to be petted and made over. Joan spent a week in a foster home and did really well. She enjoyed being on the couch, sleeping in the bed and playing with another dog. Joan just needs a patience loving owner to take a little time with her. Joan will need a fenced yard to keep her from ever being a stray again. This girl was well on her way to starving when the rescue found her. Joan has quickly learned what its like to be well-fed, have clean water and a decent place to lay her head. She would do best in a home without small toddler children. Joan is spayed, current on shots, heartworm negative & microchipped. Our online application can be found at http://members.petfinder.org/~VA231/Adoptions/Application.htm.
