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 desperate for a great home. Don't you just want to pick him up and cuddle his cute spotty face? Cornelius is about three 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! We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$395. 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.

      Emmy - Preci...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Sweet Emmy! Emmy is a beautiful and sweet, sweet, 2-yr-old fawn-and-white staffordshire girl who was abused, and shot by someone with a BB gun. We aim to show her the best life ever, as she is so deserving and wonderful, loving humans regardless. She is just 57 lbs. She will give kisses and wags her tail and love affection. Emmy was kenneled with another dog at the shelter (see video, they call her Roxy before she was renamed) but we believe she will be best as an only dog in your home, especially to receive all the love you have to offer. She is very interested in cats so a feline-free home will suit her well. She is in training though, and doing very well. Emmy is in a loving foster home. Below are the key notes from her foster mom :) 1. Emmy's a sound sleeper so she's not going to disturb the sleep of an owner who lets her sleep on the bed. 2. I haven't heard Emmy bark one time, so I would classify her as "not a barker". This will appeal to anyone who's ever dealt with a barker. 3. Emmy would be great for a runner on sidewalks or out in the country, as she prefers to trot on her walks. Because her attention is focused forward and up (not nose to the ground stopping to smell the roses) she keeps forward momentum. When she learns the etiquette of staying with her human (not veering towards squirrels or barking dogs behind fences) she'll be an ideal running partner. 4. Emmy would be great for a hiker. I've taken Emmy into the grassy hills around my house and she's interested in the birds hiding in the bushes. Even in 40 degree weather she wants to be outside. She's got stamina (up to an hour up and down steep hills, nonstop with no signs of stopping). Anyone who's ever dealt with a dog who quits mid-hike will will appreciate Emmy's athleticism. 5. Emmy isn't fixated on any one toy, and is especially disinterested in balls. This will appeal to anyone who's ever tried to interact with a ball-obsessed dog. 6. I let Emmy go where she wants while I'm working, and she tends to want to be sleeping next to my desk or sitting on a chair next to me, looking out the window. 7. Emmy demands very little special attention but she likes to be present with a person. 8. Emmy loves cuddles! She is spayed, updated on all shots, and ready for your love. 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-$395. 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!

      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie (long coat). Meet Thelma! Thelma is about 11 months old, rescued from Iran of all places. She was in a horrific situation and we are so glad she has been rescued. She is a Persian beauty. She is medium in size, and loves other dogs. She is extremely playful and has a ton of energy so will need a very active family as her breed denotes daily exercise so if you walk, run or hike, she will love it. Thelma likes people but can be timid at first She is more careful with men than with women. She will relax when she gets into a great home to love her. She loves cuddle time. Thelma does have some separation anxiety and needs someone who is home more than not or that wants to take her places. Kids are OK for Thelma but we recommend kids over 14 because of Thelma's high energy nature. She is not suitable for apartment living and has very high exercise needs. She can easily go for a 3-4 mile run and still come back for more. This is typical for Border Collies and they need to kept active and stimulated in order to not feel frustrated. A precious border mix with a full life ahead of her. Anyone will be lucky to have her! She has now been spayed, updated on all shots and vet checked. Her 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-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Anton is a cute little guy who is good with other dogs and would be really happy to have a dog pal to play with. Anton was not treated well by a male in the past and as a result, is very scared of men. He will need to be in a female-only household. He will bond with his people very nicely and craves loves and attention. He does not love to be alone a lot during the day so if you are home more than not or have another pet, it will really fill his heart. Anton would love to live with a patient and kind female who loves to cuddle. He is very deserving. He knows sit. Stay. Shake. Down. Off. He is so smart. He loves, loves his walks and is great on a leash. But he is very timid and really needs an experienced handler and someone willing to give him a constant routine. He can bark at strangers when on walks and will do best in a more quiet environment and in a home with a yard. Anton is up to date on his vaccinations and is neutered. His 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-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

She is an American Bulldog mix with the cutest floppy ears, and around 55 lbs of cute. When we say cuddle, we mean it! Her real name is Dana but we like to call her Piglet because of her sweet snorty sounds. She will kiss you at every opportunity. She doesn't bark, is super duper chill, short walks are fine. Loves to be inside with her people. She has some scars on her head and has probably had a rough life but she did not lose her loving spirit. Piglet is about 2 years old and we think she can do ok with boy dogs with proper intro. She has lived with doggies, just hasn't had enough love so you will need to double pet! Or if she can be the focus of your attention, she will love it. She is eager to learn and is confident, goofy and all the rest. We have not seen her with cats. She does love kids.

      Posted Breed: Red Heeler (medium coat). Meet Bullwinkle! This girl is a happy and very active 7 year old. Bullwinkle's greatest joy in life is running around and playing with balls. She has a lot of energy and her current owners are unable to offer her the amount of attention she needs. Bullwinkle loves other dogs and plays well with them. She is also good with kids. She has a lovely temperament and would do very well with someone who has an active lifestyle and who likes to go for long hikes or enjoys playtime with their dog. She will need a good sized yard to run around in. Heelers are working dogs and need to be provided with sufficient stimulation to prevent them from becoming frustrated. Bullwinkle can do well with cats once properly introduced. She can be possessive over food and her ball, but with some guidance this behavior is very manageable. Bullwinkle is up to date on vaccination and is spayed. Her adoption fee is $295.
