Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). In search of forever home since: 5/4/2015 Meet a few of the faces of Peanut. Whether it’s a smile, a yawn or the tip of his tongue, quirky is the hallmark of this pint-sized cutie. A true rags-to-riches doggy tail, the little chi has gone from fearful to friendly, guarded to giving, anxious to affectionate in the loving safety of his foster home. Although Peanut gets along very well with other dogs, he seldom engages them in play and is seldom seen playing with toys. Instead he seems to prefer spending most of his time with his people, either being held in their arms or simply sitting on their laps. More than eager now to find his forever home, pert and petite Peanut will thrive in an adult-only one, perhaps with older, respectful and responsible children, to give him the storybook ending he so deserves..

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: American Eskimo Dog-Chihuahua Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: Spanish Fork, UT
      Posted Breed: American Eskimo Dog / Chihuahua / Mixed. Featured on Good 4 Utah Midday!! Fondly described by her foster mom as a "50 pound dog in a 5 pound body", this winter white blend of large and small breeds ADORES people, attaching herself to them like puppy velcro. Bright and confident, pert and pretty Princess plays well with other dogs and cats, sleeps soundly in her crate, and is working diligently on her housetraining. Separated early from her own doggy mama due to health issues (now resolved), this lively lovely has been learning life’s lessons from loving people instead. Now, at a mere 9 weeks of age, she’s more than ready for a nurturing and knowledgeable forever home with another dog for guidance and companionship. Interested in adopting?

      Breed: Lab-Pointer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Spanish Fork, UT
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (medium coat). Check out this lovely video put together by his loving foster mom!! Dax has not always been cared for. He lived on a chain for his first two years, no dog house, no affection, no attention, and no stimulation except for watching others' live their lives of freedom, while he was restrained day after day. He was rescued, and now he knows how wonderful life can be. Dax is looking for his forever home, one that will give him a comfy bed inside the house, one that will give him daily exercise, stimulation, and love; a home where he is a full member of a family. He came to his foster home with some behavioral problems caused from his previous life, but is now thriving and loving life and has left his past chained life in the dust. This boy has a heart of gold, and is as loyal as can be. He does have anxiety in new situations and meeting new dogs, but a caring family can help him feel at ease, and calm his fears by exposing him to the situations that he thinks are scary. He would benefit greatly from obedience classes to keep him social. Dax adores toys (squeaky toys, balls, stuffed animals, and etc.), and would be in heaven if he had a room full! He adores his 6 canine siblings, and loves playing tag with them on a daily basis. He would do well with respectful children, and currently lives with an active 4 year old boy. Dax would be an excellent jogging partner, and loves to be active. Dax does chase cats, so a home without is needed. Dax he knows sit, shake, down, and stay. This amazing and loving boy is ready for a permanent place to call home. Interested in adopting? Please click the Adoption Application/Contract button at the top of the screen. Fill out the form.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Spanish Fork, UT
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Featured on Good 4 Utah-Midday! In search of forever home since: 10/9/2015 Tina, the striking 7-year-old stray is known round her foster home as sweeter than sweet and wonderfully wiggly. Although more docile than daring, she gets along well with the other dogs, and relishes her role as "teacher’s pet" to her foster mom. With her true past unclear, what IS clear is that Tina had little to no socialization. What this cautious cutie needs, then, is TIME to grow into the confident cutie she should be. Trust, slowly and patiently built, is the key to winning Tina’s heart, and once achieved, will be repaid in full with a love that lasts fur-ever. Interested in adopting?
