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: Staffordshire Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Brittany! This darling red-nosed staffordshire 4.5-yr-old beauty. A butt wiggler! She is the sweetest most loving girl in the world, and lives to make you happy and be the best pup that she can. She loves being outside, mellow walks, and napping in the warm sun, but also likes to come inside and then cuddle. She loves to have your attention, and will love you back unconditionally as much as you let her! :) She adores kids and puppies, and if there were dogs around it would be best if they were a boy, with proper intro. Girl adult dogs, not as much. We think a no on cats. She does not need tons of exercise but nice walks are great. No big hikes or runs. She has the cutest ears and when you talk to her, especially with commands she knows, she tilts her head and moves her ears. An arrow in the heart, so cute! Add that to how she sits, like a teddy bear, on her bum with her legs sticking out. She has one leg that didn't form as well as the other but it bothers her none. She is very easy to live with and take care of. She enjoys sleeping in a bedroom with people or better yet, sneak up on the bed. Brittany has slight separation anxiety so ensuring all your doors and gates are fully closed or a short (vs long) period in her kennel, she will do ok. Brittany is not suitable for apartments or condos and will do best in a home with a good-sized, fenced yard. Brittany should be fed alone as she is overly eager and needs the space to enjoy her meals. She is a bit piggy about treats and toys too so making sure she and other dogs are not right in each other’s faces is good to do. We can provide key tips that you should follow. Brittany is vaccinated and spayed. Her adoption fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life! To expedite to meet with this dog, please go to our site at www.savinggreatanimals.org and fill out an application.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund (short coat). Meet Cheesecake! Yes, she looks a bit like one but once she gets to go on walks with you and get a lot of loving, she will slim down and start to smile! This darling chihuahua girl has many years left and at 9 is still very ready to bond and learn to trust. She is mostly chihuahua with maybe a little bit of dachshund. Her breed is typically slightly nervous and we can help with ways to integrate her nicely. We await new pictures because this is her shelter photo. She found herself on death row due to overcrowding and to no fault of her own. And she is terrified there. We have rescued her, will get her a nice warm bath and some affection and get her ready for you to meet her and fall in love! She is now updated on all shots, spayed. Her adopt fee is $195. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Dutch Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Please meet Barron! This precious boy has had a very rough one since day one of his only 8 months of life. He is a big puppy, full of life and we are looking for someone to help him learn, using assignments from his coach! So far, he is doing beautifully after just one session! He was kept in a cage since an infant and has had no direction but he has it now and he is a great boy! Barron is a beautiful collie (and dutch shepherd) mix boy with long legs. He needs a home where he has a yard to run in or an owner who will take him running and hiking and such. When he finally gets to see what life can be like, he will calm and be soo happy. Barron will be ready to bond once he has good guidance and he will become your best friend and will love that job. Collies are in the working dog group so he needs something to do with his nature-given smarts. They like jobs to do whether hiking or running or helping you with chores. He is smart. Given his longer legs, agility may also be great for him. He certainly has the energy to do it and would love to achieve. His breed mix is high energy. Barron is good off leash when it comes to other dogs but is reactive on the leash, ever so common. We will help provide training so you can help get him on the right path for the rest of his long life. He needs to meet dogs with proper intro as he hasn't been given much in this area. But with the right leadership, he will learn well and probably just love it! He is NOT suitable for apartment living and not suitable for a family with children. Barron is now neutered, updated on all shots and chipped. His adopt fee is $395. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Posted Breed: Saluki / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Nescafe, aka Nessie! This beauty is a nearly 2 year old Saluki/Shep mix girl. She was found on the streets of Iran with a broken leg many months back but she is all healed up now and doing great and is a total love! Nessie loves adults and does fine with male dogs. She gets jealous of female dogs and is not good with small dogs. A boy dog her size to play with could be fun for her with proper introduction. She could also be an only dog, which would suit her just fine as well. Nessie is a love who likes to be out in the yard and play with a ball. She needs a moderate amount of exercise and is calm in the home. She likes exploring on walks too. She will do better with someone around more often than not or who will take her places. Nessie is vaccinated, spayed and chipped. You can submit an application for her via www.savinggreatanimals.org. Her adoption fee is $395. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Meet Ginger! Ginger is an adorable 6-year-old staffordshire beauty. She is an active girl who enjoys being close to her human pack. She is very affectionate and loving. She’s well behaved and follows directions well. She loves all people, big and small. She is strong so we can give you tips on good walking with her. Ginger would ADORE a person to take her on hikes, walks, runs. She has the energy and a house with a yard will be awesome for her. She loves to go on her walks, gets very excited. But then is a PERFECT couch potato after! She is a smart girl so and loves being stimulated and seeing new and different things, from exploring trails to a challenging kong with treats in it. She loves toys. On walks, she will look for squirrels or cat or others. Maybe to play, maybe not but working with her on awesome leash work is key. We have plenty of tricks and she’s pretty darned good already. She loves to keep a good pace walking and a harness is super important to use as it makes it easier for you. Ginger knows basic commands like sit, down, roll over and shake. She just adores people and wants to be near them all the time. She is an excellent companion. Ginger is good with other dogs after a proper introduction and will do best with dogs that are more calm and submissive. She will go into her crate, especially if the door is open. Or if you are free roam house, she does just fine. She would rather you be home than not but is fine in the house alone. Ginger is spayed, vaccinated and chipped. Her adoption fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Joey! Joey is a sweet little chihuahua/terrier mix. He is just 1 year old, so is very ready to have a long and good life. He has pretty black and white coloring and is a loving boy. He is shy at first and takes a while to open up, but once he does, he is super sweet and will be your constant companion. Joey loves children and enjoys their company. He is good with other dogs too. His only challenge is that he gets very worried meeting new people. He would prefer a more quiet home where there is not too much coming and going, which makes a home with children a bit of a challenge for him (even though he likes kids a lot). Joey is now vaccinated, neutered and ready for a new home. His adoption donation, often matched by employers, is $395. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Tsar is a beautiful 6-yr-old Doberman mix. Saved from a high kill shelter where he should not have been to begin with, this boy is amazing! He is just a love. He enjoys playing ball sooooo much. He is affectionate and sweet. He loves to go for walks and once he knows you, he wants to bond. He is a hoot and shows how much he loves your company. He is a tall boy, just beautiful. He takes treats softly, loves people and will make someone a great family friend! We think a no doggie home is best for him, so he can soak up all the love. He potentially lived with dogs in the past but had not been integrated properly and while he may like a dog, he is best just living the good life with you. Tsar loves to enjoy the outdoors and then relax with family. He loves affection. He is strong and so using a Wonder Walker or Gentle Leader on walks will make it great for you all. He has Dermal Hemangiosarcoma where we are removing small soft growths from his belly every so often. He is doing just great and it bothers him none. Tsar is best on a grain-free diet. His now updated on all shots, neutered and his adopt fee is $195. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Posted Breed: Whippet / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Joy is the perfect size! She is a 4 + -yr-old snuggler, ready to be loved. She has a slender face and we think she is a mix of whippet and shepherd. But if she is a heinz 57, she is a cute one! Joy will love to be active with you so if you are inclined for walks, hikes or runs, she will enjoy joining you. She has gone for long hikes and loves it! Joy digs sniffing smells on her walks and will play ball but wants a treat for you to throw. She thrives on learning and doing and going and could possibly do agility training. She is agile and strong. Joy is very well trained and super smart. She responds to commands quickly and eagerly. She knows sit, stay, leave it, find it, shake, rollover, heel and is a delight to train with. She loves to give kisses and rides well in the car, just lying on the back seat or looking out the window. She smiles a lot and loves to be with people, however, kids do make her nervous so we recommend a child-free home. Joy is a sensitive girl, loud sounds or if you raise your voice, etc. so she will need a gentle and firm leader. She also will do better with someone around more often than not as she does not love staying home by herself for long periods of time. Joy likes other dogs but is more of a leader type so a submissive pal is best. She does well with bigger dogs vs. small. Her current doggie daycare best friend is a German Shepherd. No cats or little critters for this girl. She is updated on all shots, spayed and will love to join you. Her adopt fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Gus! Gus was found cold, skinny and alone in a parking lot. He looked like he had been on the run for a quite some time. We are not sure if he was dumped or somehow separated from his owner, but all attempts at finding his owner failed. Now Gus needs a loving home to lie down his weary head. Gus is just under 8 years old and a lab mix. His foster has lovingly fattened him up and he is now healthy and doing well. Gus is a shy boy and it takes him some time to warm up to people. He likes to watch what is going on from a distance and enjoys sleeping in his warm bed or on a corner of the couch. He likes being petted but is unsure at first. Once he trusts you, he is happy with some nice ear scratches or back rubs. He gets along well with other dogs but not with cats. We think he will do best in a home without children or lots of coming and going. Gus likes things quiet and predictable. He also needs proper introduction to new people and we can provide you tips and as long as you follow them to a T, all will be well! We'd love to see this lost boy in a home once again. He is now vaccinated, neutered and ready to be loved. His adoption fee is $195, often matched by employers, so please do check! We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!
