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.

      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Staffordshire Bull Terrier (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 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 blend. We think a no doggie home is best for him, so he can soak up all the love. Tsar 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. 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 $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: 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 is good with children of all ages, but because she is a little affectionately mouthy sometimes, we prefer to see her with older children (10 and up). 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. Ginger needs a good dose of exercise every day and will enjoy going for long walks with you or playing in the yard. She loves playing with her rope toy. 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.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      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!

She is an adorable girl with a strong personality. She is loving and sweet with people that she knows but can struggle with meeting new people so will love your help to feel comfortable. She likes to sit on laps and be petted but can be territorial when her space is invaded without invitation, so we will give you tools to help her confidence. She is in one of our foster homes and is doing better with this. Ellie walks well on the leash and gets along with other dogs. She shows the same territorial issue with other dogs though, so as long as they respect her space, she will be fine. We can recommend good trainers to work with her further once she is in her new home. Ellie is good with children but we prefer to see her in a home with older kids, who can respect Ellie's need for her own space at times. Ellie is vaccinated, spayed and chipped.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Buddy is a beautiful terrier mix with gorgeous green eyes. He is about 6 years old and a well trained boy. He is smart and loves to go for walks and is great on the leash. He knows many commands including sit, stay, go to his rug (dog-bed), right there (heel) and off. He’s food motivated and is eager to keep learning! Buddy has been trained to either alert you that he is has to go potty or will use a doggie door. He also is crate trained but is left to roam openly in the home and does just great. He will love chewing on a good bone or toy. Buddy is super affectionate and loves being loved! He loves playing fetch! He loves the backyard fun. He’s done fine at dog parks but really loves one-on-one time. He does love other pooches though and loves to play, play, play. So, a home with another dog may be great for him or he can do fine alone. Buddy has an independent personality and can be a bit stubborn so a strong leader to ensure he knows boundaries is key. He is a little bit insecure so shows that by sometimes trying to challenge you. He will do best in a more quiet setting, even one that is rural and a crowded city and loud noises stress him a bit. Kids make him a bit nervous so we recommend a no young child home. Buddy will love to protect you and your home so slow and proper introductions to new people is key. Once he knows everything will be ok, be settles in nicely. He needs a fenced yard or a yard that doesn’t allow him to escape and chase people, cats, little critters. Buddy can be territorial with his food, couch, etc. So using the off command before you take his place on the couch or move his food, will be key, or he will become a bit nippy and bossy. A solid leader will be respected by him – someone who is firm yet gives him a sense of calm. He is a lovely boy, updated on all shots, neutered 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!

      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!
