Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Italian Greyhound / Mixed (short coat). Meet Cornelius! This beautiful boy has such soulful eyes. He is letting us know that he is full of love and while a bit nervous, a good leader will make him feel comfortable. He is a hoot! Check out his new video! Cornelius is 4 years old and loves other dogs and people of all kinds. We rescued him from a kill shelter where he was scared and confused. Let's give this sweetie a loving home. He is a great catch! He is now neutered, updated on shots, and chipped. 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. We look at the first applications to arrive, so we hope to hear from you soon!

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: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Meet Casanova! Stunning patches on this precious blue-nosed blue and white staffordshire sweetie pie. As handsome as the name he's been given, he is the cutest little bully in town! Casanova is a happy 4-year-old with amazing and yummy big ears! He loves everyone and is typically ok with other dogs. He can get a little guarded around other dogs and shows some stiff body language at times. We think he will be happiest as the only dog in the home. He loves to go for walks and play outdoors and then snuggle in tightly with his people. He is smart and eager to learn all that he can from you and to spend the rest of his life as a member of your family. Please watch Casanova's videos! We don't think Casanova has ever seen a cat, so we will say no to felines for now. He is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccines, weighs about 55 pounds and his adoption fee is $395. He is ready to go! 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: Doberman Pinscher / Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Linus 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. Check out his new videos! He is a tall boy, just beautiful. He has been said to get along with dogs but a proper intro is always essential. We need to assess him more with other dogs to ensure he can get along. Linus loves to enjoy the outdoors and then relax with family. We think he was not always treated well in the past so he will love to experience love and affection. Since we have not seen him with kids, we prefer to place him in a home with older children. He will love to go to training school with you and it will be just a wonderful way for him to know what you need from him and he from you. His now updated on all shots, neutered and his 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!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pug / Mixed (short coat). Meet Loa! This adorable girl is a gorgeous lab/pug/beagle mix. She has a permanent smile on her face and is a lover of everyone she meets. Loa is a social butterfly with people and will shower you with kisses whenever she can. She is an active girl who loves her toys, playing frisbee and going for long walks. She walks well on the leash. Loa gets along with dogs her size, but sometimes does not do as well with smaller dogs. Proper intro is key and we can help with tips! No cats for this kid. Loa loves children but due to her bouncy nature, we would recommend her for older kids only (8 and up). Loa is truly the sweetest dog and we adore her. She is a big snuggler and very loving and outgoing. A lot of fun, she is! We would like to see her in a home with a yard so she can run and play. She did not have a great start in life but we are happy to have rescued her and look forward to seeing her in a great home. Loa is now vaccinated, spayed and chipped. 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!

      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Macey is just darling! This dear girl has been living life on a chain and while we await new pictures (after her vet visit). She has been living on a chain out in the elements for the past matter of years. We are so relieved to have rescued her. She is now warm and safe. Macey is an energetic girl and very lively. She wants to be loved and will need a patient home with regular schedules so she can adapt to a new and much more meaningful life being part of your family. She will love it! She has lived with dogs, as we rescued all four from the same property, but proper intro is still key. We are not sure how she was fed but know that she should be fed alone away from others until she knows meals will keep coming. We are fairly certain food was thrown on the ground near her so she had to work for her meals. She is strong and active, 3 yrs old and about 50 lbs. Super beautiful girl who will love walks, runs, hikes, and more, once she settles in. She will LOVE to cuddle as she has had very little tactile love. She will be updated on all shots, spayed and chipped. 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!

      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Oh my goodness, we love this girl. Zoey is an 18-month-old blue girl and as you can see from her videos, is super loving and ready to be part of a family! Zoey loves people, too. She is eager to learn from you and to please. Zoey is a great girl, super athletic, and just stunning with her blue beauty. She is outgoing in her personality, very colorful and smart, funny and happy. She loves to fetch! She loves to run and hike! She currently lives with Jet, another staffordshire, but he is older and she is young and needs to be either the only dog in the home or a match of her similar age and energy level. She also would do better with a more beta personality as she is a confident young lady. At home with Jet, she gets on great, sharing beds, toys and food. But outside it gets a bit rough for him because she loves to play a lot, so we must find a better match for Zoey-girl. She is great on the leash and knows many commands and listens. She was trained with a very light vibration collar and is learning quickly. She wants to please and is a hoot! She does get riled up a little on walks when she sees another dog, and that is common for leashed dogs who tend to do better off leash than on. All said, we think a single dog home to dote on her will be perfect unless you have breed experience. Zoey is not good with cats or small critters as she does love to chase to catch. She is updated on all shots, spayed and 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.

He is a gorgeous chocolate brown and white staffordshire and lab boy who loves to go for walks and explore the world. He is so wanting to be wanted and needed. He knows to sit and shake and is uber, super duper handsome. Check out his video and pics!

He will relax after a while and then fall in love with the life you are showering on him. He hasn't been around dogs for playing while in the shelter environment, which is unfortunate for him. He currently is next to another dog in a boarding facility and doing fine. We will want to spend time to see how he is with other dogs so while we do that, we would love a foster with no other animals so he can focus. He will surprise us all in a good way. His history is that he has lived with other dogs. Charlie is now neutered and updated on all shots. This handsome hunk has an adopt fee of $295.
