Posted Breed: Xoloitzcuintle/Mexican Hairless / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Please understand that we get many applications for our available dogs. We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Fostered in Sun City, AZ Meet Goldie, She is a lovable and enthusiastic young dog. She loves people of all ages, and is a super star at cuddling. Goldie loves playing with her 4 foster brother and sisters and even has visited Aunties kitties with no problems. Loves walks or runs, and is great on a leash. She does need to be reminded not to chew on plastic every once in a while but is a fast learner and responds well to one on one training. She is a tiny ball of love looking for her forever home. Goldie is being fostered in Arizona.

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: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Lansing, MI
      Posted Breed: Xoloitzcuintle/Mexican Hairless (short coat). Please understand that we get many applications for our available dogs. We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. My name is Smidge and I’m looking for that special someone who is patient and is willing to take the time to get to know me. I am a very joyful little girl and wag my tail with enthusiasm every chance I get. I absolutely love being around people and other dogs (cats are ok too), but because of my scary past, I am afraid of hands and nervous about being touched or held. I might try to get away, but I’m getting more used to being touched and sometimes I actually like it. I have come a really long way since I’ve been with my foster family, but I need to continue my journey in my forever home. I’m not really cuddly yet, but I’m sure I can learn to snuggle up with the right person. I am housebroken and will definitely let you know when I have to go outside. I will also use a potty pad if it’s available. I am crate trained. Sometimes I prefer to sleep in my crate and sometimes I like to curl up on the end of the bed with my foster mom and dad, just not too close. I almost always come when I’m called. I love treats! Even though I’m not too sure about being touched, I will take treats right from your hand and come back for more! I might even give you a kiss on the hand to thank you. I am young and my foster mom says I’m really smart. With time, patience and love I will be an awesome, lifelong companion. Are you that special person? If you are looking for the cutest thing on 4 paws you need look no further than Smidge.

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher (short coat). Please understand that we get many applications for our available dogs. We review each application and do our absolute best in choosing a home that best suits each dog and his/her needs and personality. Fostered in Lansing, MI Rufus is quite the outdoor lover. He likes other dogs and gets along well with big or small dogs. He has the cutest bark it sounds like he is gargling. He likes to snuggle and will come ask to get in your lap. When the dogs are out he loves to go to the top of the deck and he spends a lot of time watching the world go by. We have counted dogs only to find he is not in the house and he is just upstairs on the deck. He has marked but he is not a big marker. He is house broke and has not had an accident but I have seen him mark where another dog has. He is kennel trained and he sleeps there also. He is a character and will take on playing with the big dogs like he is the same size as them. He loves to play and like his toys. He is up to date on shots and his neutered.
