We are located at 7940 University Ave NE, Fridley PLEASE NOTE: Home visits are required for all dog adoptions. If you are outside of the Twin Cities area,we will contact rescue volunteers in your area to conduct a home visit. We do not transport adoption animals out of state.

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.

Dusty is a super friendly playful pup who is very well balanced between mellow and energetic and would love a family who keeps him active with a yard to play in. He is kind of a cat chaser but he's never aggressive he just wants to play with them. He is house trained and crate trained. Sometimes he doesn't want to go in his crate but he still cooperates and doesn't make a peep once he gets in. He only barks in the morning when he wants to come out to go to the bathroom. He taps on the door with his paw to let me know he needs to go out, he would prefer a home where he doesn't spend long days in the kennel, 6 hours or less would be best. He is a cuddler and is great with other dogs. He makes walks super easy and fun. He is a chewer so he needs chew toys all the time or he might get himself into trouble. He warms up to new people right away and just wants his belly scratched. He falls right asleep if you rub his head. He knows how to sit and lay down, he rarely jumps on people, still working on come. He's really sweet and loveable. He hopes to meet you soon!

The moment I sit down he is up on my lap or under the covers. He likes to be scratched and get belly rubs. He likes everyone including my cat. He does need slow introductions to new people, dogs and cats. He tends to bully new people and dogs at first but then settles into a friendly dog. He is also leery of any new situations. He did not like his new sweater and did not want to put it on. If he thinks something new is about to happen he will go and hide. Houdini likes toys and chasing. He will race around the house with his new chew toy. He is very respectful when you are eating and waits patiently for his own food too. Houdini resource guards people. When he is on my lap he doesn’t want anyone to come near us. He likes quiet respectful children. But more than one racing, wrestling or child activity would be too much for him. He is wonderful. He just has a few quirks to work through. Houdini would do good in a home with older children. He is unsure of younger children.

CAN'T KEEP A GOOD DOG DOWN: Pete's Story This handsome fella here is Pete (affectionately known to his foster family as "Riggs"). Riggs is a special medical Happy Tails case. He was originally adopted as a puppy from the rescue in April of 2015. When he was about a year old, Riggs started exhibiting stiffness and lameness in his back legs. His owners brought him to the vet and it was discovered that he had "luxating patella". This basically means his knee caps would slide out of place casing extreme pain whenever the knees bent. The condition most often stems from a congenital defect. More extreme cases require surgical intervention. Riggs fell into this category and his owners made the difficult decision to surrender him back to Happy Tails as they were not financially able to provide the medical care needed to help him. Our family started fostering Riggs late October 2016. When he came to us he walked very stiffly, always trying to keep his back legs as straight as possible. You could tell he was hurting. Once Riggs settled into our home, an orthopedic specialist was found. Surgery was performed on the left hind leg December 1, 2016. Recovery time was expected to be about eight long weeks where he had to have very restricted movement. While healing, Riggs turned 2 years old on February 1, 2017! He thoroughly enjoyed celebrating with his furry foster brother and sisters! Frosty Paws Ice cream and frozen peanut butter Kongs were both on the menu!! :) Soon after, Riggs was finally strong enough where he could put full weight on the left leg. On February 21st, we proceeded with the second surgery for the right hind leg. When the surgeon opened him up and got in there they discovered that this leg also had a torn ACL. This was repaired along with the patella. Near the end of his second, eight-week recovery period, Riggs was still very sensitive and hesitant to put weight on his right leg. When the surgeon reviewed the new X-rays, a fair amount of arthritis was noted and it was determined that the implant used for repair was causing significant pain and inflammation. Riggs would need to have yet another surgery:( Riggs is expected to undergo the implant removal procedure in mid-late May 2017. We will then find out whether a different type of implant is required to be placed or if the scar tissue alone will adequately hold everything together. So, as they say, the saga continues! Through all the pain and recovery so far, Riggs has been an absolute trooper- always in the best of spirits! He is determined to play and be just like the other dogs. He can tear around pretty darn quick right now, even on 3 legs! He is very strong and gets super excited when the leash comes out as he knows we are going for a little jaunt around the block. Though he will never be a marathon runner, he is sure to be an awesome all-around companion! Riggs is very well house trained. He does fine in a crate but will require a large one as he needs room to stretch out his legs. He often times naps on his back in his crate with his legs straight up in the air! He is wonderful with other dogs, both big and small, and knows how to play appropriately based on size. He grew up around young children and I don't foresee any problems in that regard. He does great in the car- just lays down and chills while enjoying the ride. He has an incredibly easygoing, affable personality and will get vocal when he wants or needs something. Riggs loves to just be BY you. He enjoys short walks, hanging out with you on the couch, TREATS, laying by the bathroom door when you take showers, meeting new people, going to watch kid's sporting events, and sleeping at the end of the bed at night to keep your feet warm. As mentioned, Riggs does have arthritis in his back legs. It is anticipated there will be a need for pain and/or inflammatory medication and daily glucosamine supplements to manage discomfort as the arthritis will progress as he ages. We will find out more about medication recommendations once Riggs has finished his procedures and recovery. Whoever adds this boy to their family is going to be extremely lucky. We love Riggs very much and it has been an absolute joy to have him with us and watch his progress :) Though he is not yet quite ready to go to his forever home, Riggs is open for meet and greets!
