Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, I am the new guy in town. My name is Sharpie. I am a Shar-Pei mix with the cutest little bob tail. I am an older gentleman who just wants a place to retire and live out my golden years. I love attention and want to be your buddy. I love walks and treats. I visited the vet on 1/5 to have my ears checked because they were hurting me. We have some medicine for them, and the also drew blood to check my thyroid. I did well in the car and found a nice blanket to cuddle up in. Check back for updates as I get settled. If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application and ask for Sharpie!

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.

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei (medium coat). Hi! My name is Cooper. I am about five years old. I am settled in at my foster home in NC and really love being an inside dog. Right now I am trying to make up for all the years of no hugs and kisses. I get so excited when I see my people that I wriggle my whole body and have the biggest smile on my face. There was an eight year old girl who I used to live with, and I really liked her. I would make a great only dog or a companion for an older dog since I don't really need to play. I am living with three other dogs and get along fine, but I sure would love a “furever” home. I am not crated during the day because I am so well behaved. I stay in my own room and enjoy looking out the window. I do have a thyroid condition that will require medication for the rest of my life but the meds are not expensive. If you love my infectious smile and are looking for a little red guy with a sweet black face that will love you forever, then please consider me. Also, the rescue is looking for a new foster home for me. There is nothing that I did wrong. My current foster parents just need to focus on their other dogs right now, so it would be helpful to them if we found a new foster for me. If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application and ask for Cooper!

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, my name is Carmella. I‘m a young, playful girl. I‘m crate trained, housebroken, and get along with dogs. I am sometimes jumpy if I hear a loud noise or sound that is not familiar. I didn't know what to think of the lawn mower - yikes! I am just getting settled in here at rescue. I have a new friend, Muffy; and we have become fast playmates. I take a little while to warm up to new people; but when I do, I want to nibble and play. If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application and ask for Carmella!

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei (medium coat). Hi, I‘m Rocky! I am a very sweet, social two year old boy. I was in bad shape and very underweight when I came from the shelter, so they thought I was older. I have been doing great in my foster home and am now up to 37.5 pounds. I like other dogs and cats. We think I would do best with adults or older children (I am a food thief). My coat is coming in nicely. I look great and am playing like the two year old youngster that I am! If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application and ask for Rocky!

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei (medium coat). Hi, my name is Pearl! I am about 7-8 years old and lived my entire life outside before coming to rescue. I am so happy to be living in a house with comfy beds and people who care about me. Everyone who meets me just loves me and says that I am a sweet girl. I also have some new canine friends at my foster home. I have been a very good, sweet girl at the veterinarian. I came to rescue with an issue with my back legs. I saw a physical therapist and was referred to an orthopedic surgeon. I have a condition called Grade 4 Bilateral Subluxating Patella. This is a condition where my kneecaps are severely rotated outboard on each of my hind legs. I had limited use of my back legs and had resorted to getting around by dragging my back end like a seal or by hopping on one of my back legs. I had surgery on my first leg in June and am now going to physical therapy. I am doing really well and can even climb up on the bed now. I will need surgery on my second leg this fall. I also had entropion surgery and was spayed prior to my first orthopedic surgery. The rescue has been fundraising for my surgeries. We have raised enough to cover my first two surgeries, but need to raise about $4,000 more for my second surgery and second physical therapy. Yikes! Please visit our website and consider donating to my fundraiser if you can help me out. Any amount is greatly appreciated! I won't be available for adoption for quite a while because of my surgery and physical therapy. If you are interested in adopting me when I am all better, please fill out an application and ask for Pearl!

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Barnegat Light, NJ
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei (medium coat). Hi, my name is Brewer! I am a senior boy rescued from a Georgia shelter. Everyone who has met me says that I am very sweet and lovable! I had a rough life before coming to resuce, but the nice rescue folks are helping to make me feel better. I came to rescue heartworm positive, so I am being treated for that. I had bloodwork done, which revealed that I need to be on thyroid meds. I have started that too. I also have dry eye and am on meds for that. My legs are very wobbly. Xrays showed that I have arthritis in one hip and bone on bone in my back. I am on Tramadol and Rimadyl as needed for pain. Thankfully, a wonderful donor sent a nice orthopedic bed for me. I am really enjoying resting on that. Foster mommy says that I am precious and love everyone. I am hoping to find someone looking for a quiet companion who is willing to give a sweet senior a comfortable, furever home where someone is home most of the time. If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application and ask for Brewer!
