More About Dachshund Breed
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: Anatolian Shepherd-Boxer Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Anatolian Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Dozer is a 6 month old Boxer/Anatolian mix (we think!) and he weighs 60 lbs already. He is still very much puppy though. Does well in the crate and also in the home as long as he is taken out regularly. He is a submissive dog and a little timid due to being dumped at 6 wks old and on his own. However, he is very affectionate and playful. He gets along with all other dogs but tends to chase cats. He needs someone with patience who wants a dog who will be a wonderful companion once he learns he is safe with you. He is well worth it. :) His adoption fee is $200 which includes all his puppy shots, rabies, bordetella, neuter, current heartworm prevention and microchipping. If you are interested in meeting Dozer, you can fill out an application at www.carerescueok.org and return it to rescue@carerescueok.org.
