Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hello! I'm Pasta, the world's most handsome 6 year old blonde Chihuahua mix. I weigh in at 17 pounds - I admit I do love treats and a good bully stick now and again. I have excellent leash manners, and fancy pep in my step when I'm out and about! I'm also well versed in obedience commands like "sit," "down," and "come!" Pretty impressive, huh? I'm a smart little dude, so I bet you could teach me a couple more, too! I love my people, and will happily do anything with you: go for a walk, play outside, go for a car ride,or snuggle on the couch - I'm good at it all! I do remain skeptical of those little humans, so I would prefer to be in a house with grown children or just adults - so I can get all of the attention! I get along with other dogs okay, too, as long as we have correct and polite introductions, but I'm not super impressed with them either. Like I said, I just love attention! The more time I can an spend snuggling with my humans the better! What I would love most of all, though, is a home and family to call my very own. Could it be you? What's next? Please fill out an adoption application at this site -http://www.animalalliesrescue.org and choose me - Pasta! My adoption fee is $300 and includes all routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, microchip, boarding and transportation costs if applicable, along with an offer for 30 days of free 24PetWatch pet insurance!

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: Australian Terrier / Mixed (long coat). Hi. My name is Lady B. I’m a 12-year-old Australian terrier/dachshund mix, so I have great wiry fur, very attractive ears (as you can see from my photo), and the qualities of two loyal, spunky breeds. I came to my foster home from a Louisiana veterinarian and have been here since the middle of March. I have a crate of my own here where I feel very safe, something I haven’t felt for, well, nobody knows how long. So many things here I enjoy, like walking on the leash, which I am really good at. And I have made some great dog and cat friends. I’m a bit older, so my eyes aren’t what they used to be. But my taste buds are in great working order: I love food, especially if it’s soft because hard food and treats are difficult for me to chew. Right now I’m very shy, but my foster mom thinks when I start to feel comfortable with all the new things in my life, I’ll come out of my shell. As I’m somewhat fragile, adults and older kids are best for me. I’m hoping a calm, patient person will come soon to take me to my forever home. I know that’s what I need to let out all the love I have to share. If you'd like to take me home, please fill out an adoption application at this website—http://www.animalalliesrescue.org/adoption-application and choose me—Lady B! My adoption fee is $150 and includes all of my routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, microchip, boarding and transportation costs if applicable, along with a free* trial offer for 30 days of 24PetWatch pet insurance. *Dependent on meeting eligibility requirements: Dogs 8 weeks to 10 years of age and cats 8 weeks to 12 years of age.

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Hello! I'm Uncle Buck, and am even nicer (and way more gentle!) than that guy who played me in the movies! I'm an old man who has had a busy life and am now ready to curl up next to you on the couch and keep you warm! I can't get enough pets, cuddles, and snuggles, and I'm very gentle with everyone I meet! I like humans of all shapes, ages, and sizes, but I need a home without cats. I like other dogs, but sometimes young, energetic dogs wear me out! I prefer other dogs who are calmer and more relaxed, like me. I'm pretty skinny right now, but luckily I love treats (and take them very gently from your hand)! I'm pretty smart and can walk politely on the leash and sit for treats. As an older chap, I have some age-appropriate concerns (cataracts and weakness in my hind legs) but since we'll mostly be cuddled up on the couch together, it shouldn't be too much of an issue! I've also overheard some rude comments about my breath, but if you could help me brush my teeth, I'm sure that inconvenience could be easily remedied! I'm not a huge fan of crates and I get very nervous when put in one, which leads me to bark and have some accidents. I'd love to be with someone who's able to be home with me for most of the day. What sounds better than spending our days eating snacks and cuddling on the couch? Not much too me! My adoption fee is $150.00 and includes all of my routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, FelV/FIV testing (kitties), deworming, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, microchip, boarding and transportation costs if applicable, along with a free *trial offer for 30 days of 24PetWatch pet insurance! *Dependent on meeting eligibility requirements: Dogs 8 weeks to 10 years of age and cats 8 weeks to 12 years of age.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (long coat). Let's face it, you clicked on my picture because I am unbelievably adorable, and you wanted to know if I am the gent for you. Good news: it's true! And I probably am. So allow me to introduce myself, I'm Pixel, an extremely cute (and modest!) long-coat Chihuahua mix, and I am 12 years young. Even though I'm a bit older than your average pup, I still enjoy a good walk and will occasionally find myself with a case of the zoomies, rocketing around my foster mom's backyard. But on the leash I have exceptional manners, as one should. My foster home should have no other animals or children. I prefer to be the doggy man of the house so I can get all the attention and love from you! I also need my person to be my protector out in public. I can easily be bribed with treats but I don’t like people just coming up and sticking their hands in my face-it’s just not good manners! What I really am is a dancer! If you have treats, or small table scraps, or scratch my back in juuust the right spot, I'll do a little tap dance for you! I am also crate trained AND house trained -- see, told you I am the perfect gent! But above all, what I really am is loyal and loving. I need a forever home that will be understanding of the fact that I will need time to settle into my new home and learn to trust and love you. But once I feel comfy and safe I will love you forever and be loyal as can be. Sounds perfect, right? So what are you waiting for! To take me home, please fill out an adoption application at http://www.animalalliesrescue.org. My adoption fee is $150 and includes all of my routine vetting, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, deworming, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention, microchip, boarding and transportation costs if applicable, along with an offer for 30 days of free 24PetWatch pet insurance!

      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Dog Sheepdog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. THIS IS A COURTESY POST - FOR INFORMATION ABOUT BABY PLEASE CONTACT AMBROSIA AT ambrosiandrews@gmail.com . Hello! My name is Baby and I am a spayed and chipped 7-year-old Belgian Shepard Labrador mix. I am up to date with my vaccinations and flea medication. I am also crate and potty trained. I LOVE to be brushed because it relaxes me and makes me feel safe. My owner jokes that I am a circus dog because I have a tendency to jump very high in one place when I'm excited! I have a prance in my step and love nothing more than to be my owner’s shadow. I get a little persistent with my kisses but I like to show you how much I love you! Thank you for taking me home with you! Love, Baby Baby is a loyal and protective dog who is at her best when she has purpose and a job to do. At times, she can seem somewhat aloof around strangers but with the right structure and patience she will interact with others. Baby would be a perfect dog for someone who is firm and able to establish trust with her. Her ideal environment would be in an organized, loving household hanging out with and watching over her owner(s). She is an independent dog who enjoys going on hikes, hunting critters and patrolling the backyard. Equally, she enjoys staying close to her master- she will follow you from room to room and always wants to know what you are doing next. On occasion, she will engage in typical dog activities, like attempting to play catch, but she is more likely to make you laugh at her awkwardness, than actually succeed at catching or fetching! However, Baby is very energetic and always keeps busy, unless the job at hand is to lay by your side and offer her support to you. Baby will do best in a household where she is the only dog and pet in the home and where there are no children. If there are children, it would be best that they are over the age of 14 and able to direct her in the appropriate way. She has dry skin on her back and by her tail which gets very sensitive, so she needs a daily supplement of fish oil in her food. Without this, she will have dandruff and her skin will be very sensitive. She loves the taste of fish oil so giving her this supplement will be no problem. She can be somewhat fickle about eating, but will stick to a routine once established. All in all, Baby is a good girl who is very curious and loves companionship, in turn she will offer you loyalty and love and all the kisses you can take.
