Posted Breed: Dogo Argentino (medium coat). I''m Princess, and just as my name suggests, I''m a sweet, gentle soul in search of a kingdom to call my own. Inspired by my royal heritage, I am calm, dignified and well-mannered, and I want nothing more than to be someone''s devoted companion. My foster servants have taken me on many adventures around town and I''ve impressed everyone who meets me with my charming, lovable nature. I''m looking for a mellow household with someone who can spend lots of time with me and help me feel like part of the family. As your sovereign monarch, I pledge to protect my subjects from invaders and therefore should be the only dog in the realm. If you are looking for a lady who will sleep at your feet while you watch TV, surf the internet or cook in the kitchen, I''m the one for you! Please visit my website (www.princessneedsahome.com) to view my pictures and videos and learn more about my magical personality. Here''s to making dreams come true! FOR INFORMATION REGARDING ADOPTING ME, PLEASE CONTACT MY FOSTER AT: LD47025@yahoo.com

More About Dogo Argentino 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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Gordon Setter / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Once upon a time I was a handsome pup with my life before me. But, life hasn''t always been easy for me and, through no fault of my own, I ended up here at VCAS. But, I am not going to let being here keep me down. I am in good spirits because I keep thinking that a nice, loving human is going to adopt me and we are going to be happy furever after. Like many men of advanced years, my fur is thinning, but I am ok with that. I have very nice manners, I know `sit` and `shake` and I am a treat hound! I love to play fetch and when I see grass, watch out because I love to roll in it! I am hoping that someone who likes massages will adopt me because massages are one of my most favorite things in the whole world! The volunteers here at VCAS are very good at giving me massages. But, most of all, just like you, I just want a human of my own to love and who will shower me with as much love as they have to give!

PackWalk participant * Lower energy dog with good house manners * Crate and house trained * Knows `sit`, `down` and `shake` commands * Lived with cats while in foster care Ready for 80 pounds of pure love?

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). Hi, my shelter friends call me Voltaire and I haven''t been here very long, but it seems like a nice place. The food is good, my new friends chat with me and pet me when ever they can, and they give me nice plankets to keep me comfy in my kennel. What I''d really like though is a forever home and family to call my own. Once the shelter workers have a chance to get to know me better, they''ll have more to say about me. If you want to meet me right now though, that would be GREAT! The nice people at the Adoption center can arrange for us to meet today! Just take my kennel number with you and we can hang out for a bit. Watch Voltaire''s video:
