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.

      PUGSLEY

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Puggle
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Pug / Mixed (short coat). THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. CONTACT IS SHARPRESCUEOFNY@GMAIL.COM Pugsley, who appears to be a puggle is about six years old. He was hit by a car, probably directly in the head. Some good Samaritan turned him into the Brooklyn ACC, but they were not equipped to care for him and the plan was to just humanely put him to sleep at the close of business if no one stepped up to take him. This was October29. Just before 5pm, a SHARP volunteer came to pick him up and take him to a vet. The vet determined that he was probably in a coma, at least blind in one eye, perhaps both eyes and probably had swelling of the brain. His condition was grave and the vet didn’t expect Pugsley to make it through the night. BUT HE DID! At first he had to be hand fed and when let out he just circled. But he continued to improve. Eventually he started eating on his own, relieving himself while standing. He started to actually walk around the vet’s office. Shortly he will be ready to leave the vet. We first want to take him to an eye specialist to see if there is anything we can do for his other eye. He will need to be on medication for some time, including eye meds in both eyes three times a day. He will be a special needs dog for the rest of his life, but he likes people and likes to cuddle.

      Breed: Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Husky. UPDATE: I MET DIANDY ON MONDAY AND DISCOVERED HE IS 11 NOT 14 YO. HE IS UP TO DATE ON HIS VACCINATIONS. HAS ONE CLOUDY EYE BUT THE OTHER EYE SEEMS TO BE OK. HE IS VERY ACTIVE DEFINITELY NEEDS A LARGE BACKYARD AND A LOT OF EXERCISE, QUITE MOUTHY, NEEDS A “REFRESHER COURSE” IN HOUSEBREAKING, AND APPARENTLY DOESN’T LIKE GROOMING. DIANDY NEEDS AN EXPERIENCED PERSON WITH THE HUSKY BREED. HE HAS LIVED WITH CATS AND YOUNG CHILDREN BUT NOT OTHER DOGS. WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FOSTER HOME WITHOUT CHILDREN OR CATS TO HELP HIM DECOMPRESS AND REACCLIMATE TO LIVING IN A HOME WITH A FAMILY. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DIANDY CONTACT WILMA@WILMASORPHANS.COM FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. THIS IS A COURTESY POSTING. My name is Diandy and I am an 11yo distinguished Husky gentleman. My father became ill and went into the hospital. His family was unable to take care of me but found a boarding situation until he got better. They told me it would be a short stay and he would be home for Christmas. Unfortunately Christmas came & went but my father never came home. I’m a quiet guy who spends most of my time sleeping. I do enjoy going for walks and walk well on a leash. Although I am a little apprehensive when having my leash put on but once it’s on I’m raring to go. Being 11 it takes a little while for my joints to loosen up but when they do I can run and play. I LOVE tennis balls, but please don’t throw them too far. I appreciate a large backyard and spending quality time there with my person. Boarding is no place for an older guy like me. Won’t you take me home with you. We are looking for a foster or permanent home so Diandy can spend his remaining time in comfort with a caring family. He is in good shape/health for a 11 yo dog. Maybe a little cranky due to his situation but we are sure he will be a happy furbaby in a warm loving home.
