Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hey Chihuahua fans! Meet Chip, a special little senior chi mix. He loves belly rubs, going for walks, and napping by your side. Whether it's a day lounging at home or riding in the car to an adventure, he wants to be with his people! It takes a bit of time for him to trust someone, but once he does he's a wonderful, sweet, lovable, and loyal companion. Chip needs a forever home where he'll get plenty of TLC and knows he's safe and loved. Chip is around 10 years old, 11 pounds, is house trained, crate trained, excellent on a harness and leash, knows basic commands, understands many common words, and great in the car. He can learn to co-exist with other animals if they give him plenty of personal space, but he prefers the company of people. He would do best in a home without other pets, or possibly one or two other mellow pets. He loves children, but needs supervision with them (like any dog does) to ensure positive interactions. He will have to be given an affordable arthritis medication as needed. Chip is up to date on all vetting, including vaccines, de-worming, flea prevention, heart worm prevention, and is neutered. His adoption fee is $175. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org

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.

      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Hello, My name is Sadie and I am a 4-year-old, spayed, and house-trained Dachshund/Chihuahua mix. I am from Ohio and my original owner had to move into a nursing facility. I then moved in with friends of my owner. I now live with my foster mama and my 4-legged foster sister, Lexie, who is a doxie. We are about the same size and often sleep together in her doggie bed in front of the fireplace. Because I have always lived with adults, I have never been around active children. As much as I want to get to know you and become a member of your family, I will need a little time and patience to become familiar with my new surroundings and you. My foster mama said that allowing me to come to her was the secret. She had a blankie on the couch and little by little, I would jump up and move closer to her while she rubbed my back. Fast movements, at first, were scary to me. I would try and run into a corner for a safe place. This is why my foster mama thinks I would do better with a couple or a family with older children who wouldn't run after me, and give me the space I need. I promise that after a few days and a bit of patience, I will become the very best friend your family could ever want. Watch out for sloppy kisses and a 24/7 lap dog after I get comfortable in my new home. My foster mama is always laughing at me when I play and run around the house with my toys when she comes home from work. I no longer stay in the crate when she's gone and haven't displayed any destructive behavior nor had any potty accidents. Bedtime is a favorite since I get to snuggle next to her, but morning is the best when I get my belly rubs. I am looking to finally find a home that can be my forever! Sadie is spayed, up to date with her vaccinations and microchipped. Apply today at www.sadiesrescue.org

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Meet K.C, she is a local girl that needed out of the shelter. K.C. is originally from California but made the trip across the country in hopes of finding a home. While at the SPCA she just wasn't doing well so Sadie's stepped up and she is now in a foster home. K.C. is house broken, she fine in a crate but she does well without one as well. She is learning to walk on a leash, she needs a little work to learn not to pull. She is very shy of new things and new people and will hide when scared, but does come out in her own time. K.C would do best in a calm home without a lot of comotion. She is more comfortable around smaller dogs and she enjoys cats. She will make her self right at home by hoping up on the couch and would love a human to sleep in bed with. K.C is spayed, microchipped, and up to date with vaccinations. Apply for K.C today at www.sadiesrescue.org

      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Hi my name is Betty! I am about 14 years old but I feel 9! Actually the vet says I look really good for a lady my age. I am looking for my perfect retirement home, someplace to relax by the heater in a nice cozy bed, lay on your lap while you rub my ears and I fall asleep! Oh, and also someone to serve me meals and give me snacks. I am temporarily living in a foster home with my foster mom and canine and feline foster siblings; I am good with other dogs and cats. I love them all but want a bed of my own and people of my own! Because of my age I do have cataracts and can't see very well, but this doesn't bother me one bit... just give me a few days and I'll have the layout of your house down pat. I am house trained, but do need to go outside frequently (my bladder isn't what it used to be). Please send my foster mom an application! Any questions about me, you can email rescuemesadie@gmail.com and she will be more than happy to talk to you. I am up to date on vaccines, deworming, flea prevention, and heart worm testing and prevention. I also had a recent teeth cleaning and extractions. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org

      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hi people, I'm Lyla! I'm 10 months old and I still have all my puppy energy (or maybe that's my border collie energy, we're not really sure). Since I have lots of energy, I LOVE to go to doggie day care with my foster brother. When we're not at doggie day care we're wrestling in the house or running around in the yard. I like to get all my energy out so I can cuddle with you on the couch before sleeping through the night with you in the human bed. After I warm up to you, I love everyone I meet! But I run fast and jump kind of high, so I might be too much for small kids. I have a little bit of anxiety in the crate, but that's just because I love to be with my humans so much, I don't want you to leave me behind! When I have to stay home alone I get a frozen peanut butter bone in my crate to keep me busy. I love peanut butter bones! I would love to have a four legged sibling so we can play like my foster brother plays with me now. We have so much fun together! I briefly met a cat the other day and she really didn't interest me much. Lyla is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and on flea and heartworm prevention. Lyla is available for adoption at www.sadiesrescue.org.

      Bailey

      rescue
      Breed: Pomeranian-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Mixed. Bailey is best described as a dapper gentleman. He is mostly calm and quiet and is just looking for a soft spot to lay his head and a friend to relax with. When he first came to our rescue, this mellow guy had just lost his owner of 14 years and ended up in a shelter. He was adopted but, through no fault of his own, he has now come back into our care. So now Bailey needs a new person with whom to spend his days. In spite of his age, he's still in pretty great shape and would make a terrific partner for someone who likes to take walks. He is getting along fine with his canine foster family and is friendly toward all people but he would probably do best in a slightly quieter home without any large pushy dogs or small children. If you would like to add Bailey to your family, please fill out an application at www.sadiesrescue.org Bailey may also qualify for our "senior to senior" program so if you are a senior looking to adopt, please ask us about that option. Baily is neutered, microchipped, and up to date with his vaccinations.
