Posted Breed: Collie / Mixed (medium coat). ​ Hoarder Survivor Crate Trained LOVES other Dogs Great with Cats Arboe is a wonderful boy who is just learning to be a dog. He and his canine companions were rescued from a hoarder here in MN. He is great with other dogs, both large and small. He's even great with cats! His foster mom has him crate trained and Arboe is learning to walk on a leash. What a smart boy! Arboe does well on a tie out or fenced yard but he cannot be trusted with invisible fencing or off leash. He would be spooked and bolt - something no one wants. Arboe will need to be kept on a tie out, even inside a fenced area as he can easily climp and jump any height of fence. Arboe needs a home with a confident dog who will show him the ropes and continue his confidence building. Will you please be Arboe's angel? Click on the Adopt buttons below. or //

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: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). ​ Adoption Fee - $200 Meet Ruby! Ruby (a.k.a. Lucy) is a very sweet girl, 10 years young. You couldn't tell she is a older gal because Ruby is full of life. She is good with people and dogs, and likes to chase kitties. She enjoys affection and being in your lap - just laying there and getting belly rubs. And, she's a champion cuddler! Ruby loves to go for walks. Her foster mom is working with her on resource guarding with food. Ruby is good with other dogs but doesn't like hyperactivity. She likes her own space. For that reason, she would do best in a home with no dogs or a very calm dog. Ruby hopes to find a nice person or family to call her own very soon.

      Breed: Beagle-Pointer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Beagle / Mixed. ​ Adoption Fee: $300 Meet Agnus! Agnus has lots of energy and loves to play. She is friendly to everyone she meets. She's been great with her foster family kids; absolutely no worries there. She loves to wrestle and play with their resident dogs too, however she does have a dominant Alpha female personality. Agnus needs an active family who will take her on daily walks/runs to help her get out her energy. She would also benefit from other outlets for her energy, such as learning frisbee or other doggie agility training that would make her use her mind and body. She's not a big barker, but does bark at squirrels, the doorbell and at other times you'd expect a dog to. Agnus will be your little shadow, as she loves to be where her people are. She is very motivated by positive reinforcement and learns quickly. She's made huge strides in the time she's been with her foster family. Crate training is still a work in progress so she would not be a good candidate for a home that has shared walls such as an apartment or a townhome. Agnus would also do best with another dog in the home for companionship. or //

      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Mixed (medium coat). ​ Adoption Fee $200 Hi there! My name is Buddy. I was surrendered by my owner who could not take care of me anymore. She said I was not good with kids. I really did not enjoy being in a dog shelter. When the dog shelter people would say my name in front of my cage, I would sit up and wave my paws up and down. I was trying to tell them I was ready to be adopted! I am so happy now to be fostered by a MARS volunteer and can't wait to find a great forever home to live out my golden years and keep someone wonderful company. I am a kind and sweet guy who likes affection. I have very bad cataracts and I can barely see anything at all - but that doesn't slow me down. I am house trained but I may mark my territory initially so please watch me to prevent this. I am dreaming of being next to my forever person or people and hope you choose me! Buddy would love to be in a home with less dogs -he even would be fine as an only dog with just a person to keep company. Currently he is in a home with 5 other dogs and he does not like all the commotion. Please feel free to fill out an ADOPTION APPLICATION by clicking on the button below. Thank You! or //

      Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ​ Adoption Fee $300 Meet Ernie! Ernie was surrendered to a high kill shelter. His previous owner had kept him in an outdoor kennel where he received very little socialization. Ernie is very apprehensive around people. He is curious and inquisitive, but still very unsure when people approach him or try to touch him. He has made some nice strides since being in foster care. He is doing much better with housetraining and gets along well with the other dogs and cat in his foster home. He is VERY food motivated and now takes treats out of his foster mom's hands (he loves Cheerios!). This little guy is quite the toy hoarder! He loves to collect toys around the house and bring them to his crate. If he finds one he really likes, he will find a spot outside to hide it for safekeeping. It's quite endearing to watch him racing around looking for the perfect spot! Ernie has a cute and spunky personality. He just needs to learn that people are OK and won't hurt him. If you are patient and willing to give this little one time to adjust ... he won't disappoint you! A home with a fenced yard is required for Ernie at this time. He is afraid of the leash and will need someone to work with him on leash walking. A home with another balanced dog is required for Ernie at this time. He really takes his cues from other dogs and this will help him continue to learn how to be a well adjusted companion.
