Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. This is Ringo, a 4 year old purebred German Shepherd, about 90+ pounds and a big angel to our family. We are his current fosters but lately because of an elderly family member becoming more ill and needing more time to help her, we need to find Ringo a home soon. Ringo loves all other dogs, big or small and enjoys visits to the dog park! He also loves cats even though some may not have mutual feelings for him. He's been around children and has done well and was very gentle. He has been exposed to kids 2+. He does great on walks and can be off leash though of course he would have to have some time to adjust to you first. He's very shy at first but there is no aggression whatsoever. He is a very submissive dog that just takes a few days to warm up to a new family. After that, he'll go with you anywhere. Ringo would prefer a home with a yard so he can run around from time to time and play with his loved ones. He would love a home with another pet as well. Ringo would also like his person to be home most of the time or someone in the family that perhaps works from home. Contact: Christine Kao 626 696 6288, christinekao67@gmail.com

More About German Shepherd Dog 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: Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Meet Chandler. He is a seven year old Chihuahua who is a very sweet and loving dog. He loves to cuddle and is a pretty mellow dog. He mostly just hangs out all day and is wonderful with people and very good with kids. He would prefer to be the only dog but with a proper introduction, he should be fine with a brother or sister to play with. He has no health issues or medications. He is fixed and walks well on a leash. He is potty trained but as with most little dogs, he will have an accident if left inside too long. At our house he is trained to go to the bathroom in a specific area in our yard. He is a sweet heart with people and wants to cuddle in blankets all the time.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Meet Emily! She is a beautiful and very human and child friendly dog we adopted 4 years ago when she was approximately 6 months old. We have another dog a year older, a cat and a turtle who she gets along with well. She loves to run, play fetch, chase bubbles, wade in her kiddie pool, and get lots of belly rubs. She would be best being the only dog or have a proper introduction to other dogs. She is such a happy dog , but we are not the best family for her right now. She weighs about 50 pounds, fixed, and up to date on shots. Please contact Charlene if you would like to meet Emily cpt37@yahoo.com
