Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Nugget is such a cutie! About 5lbs, small brown scruffy Chihuahua mix male. He's about 2 years old, great with other dogs, just wants to be loved and know who he wants to belong to! Great addition to a family, single or active senior that wants a love bug to shuttle around. crated at night, great in the car, shy when he first meets new people, will warm up and adjust with time and patience. Best in a home with older respectful children. Adoption donation $250, includes his neuter, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, microchip, heartworm test, heartgard, frontline.

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: German Shepherd Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Summer is a beautiful Shepherd mix female. Coming 2 years old, 70lbs, loves people, VERY affectionate, would make awesome dog for a active family/single/couple. Needs a home with a yard, no apartments. Wants to please, knows sit, LOVES balls, chasing lizards and cuddles. Her energy level seems moderate, not high, but will require daily activity. Loves her romps around the yard, walks and short runs, but is very quiet in the house. Would love to be someones adventure buddy. Take her camping, hiking, fishing, she is up for it all! Untested with cats, but would do best in a home with NO kitties since she does have high toy drive. Has been great with other dogs she knows, but still is learning on how to be social with new dogs without coming on too strong or dominate. She will guard (bark) at a fence line from another dog. Will require further training so she can be the best dog possible. :) She has a submissive personality with people, but needs training to help her confidence so she knows what the rules are and what is expected of her. She very much wants to please. Please have the time, energy, stable home and positive environment before applying for Summer. Applications are on our direct website at www.fieldofdreamsrescue.net We have NO history on Summer, she was a stray. She is crated at night, walks on a leash (does pull some when excited), we never say a dog going into a new home is housebroken, will shed, no food aggression seen, has not been a barker in her foster home, but she is fostered on a ranch, that can change in a new environment, has been around children 7+, untested with younger, no man issue seen, doesn't appear to have separation anxiety, is fostered with other dogs. Breed is our best guess. Adoption donation $350, includes her spay, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, microchip, worming, frontline, heartworm test and heartgard. PLEASE Email for further questions after reading her bio on our website www.fieldofdreamsrescue.net Email; fieldofdreamsrescue1@gmail.com

Soft coat, VERY sweet affectionate and happy once he knows you and adjusted. Appears to not shed. He was sadly found as a stray. :( We have no history. Loves to get pets, playing with toys and attention, Somewhat aloof when he doesn't know you, when he does, he is the sweetest thing ever. :) Has been great with other dogs, but would love to be the only dog in the home since he is a bit of a attention hog. :) , Happily follows everyone around, joyfully wags his tail. Could make very nice addition to a single/couple looking for a fantastic buddy. We suggest a home with no kids because he is sensitive about grooming and will need time to adjust to a new home. He does not like being brushed, will require some patience in that matter. We suggest letting a groomer take care of him. He is crated at night, LOVES going for walks. . Cooper is around 2 years old, about 13lbs. Adoption donation $350, includes his neuter, rabies, dhpp vaccine, bordatella vaccine, microchip, worming, frontline, heartworm test, heartgard Appointments are available most days, dogs are held for same day appointments only.
