Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). One look in those eyes, and you can guess where this pretty girl gets her name! Elizabeth Taylor is approximately 3-4 years old. She is a tiny little girl around 35 pounds. She is potty trained, crate trained, and fully vetted. She is a shy little girl it takes her a bit to warm up to new people; however, once she does she is all cuddles and kisses. She is great around other non-dominant dogs. She may be good with cats upon proper introduction. She is good with children. Elizabeth Taylor likes to run or just snuggle on the couch all day.

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.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Betty White is a court case dog (Safe Humane) that was confiscated as an abuse case along with her two puppies and the puppy’s father. Betty has obviously had multiple liters of puppies in her short 3 years. Betty was a favorite by volunteers, off-site youth detention programs, parolee programs, USA veterans, corporate days, and teen YMCA groups the fourth months she was at the shelter. Betty obtained all the basic training while in the Safe Humane Program, She knows sit, down, paw, and leave it. She is also crate and potty trained. With being a safe humane dog her adoption comes with lifetime in-home training. After leaving the shelter Betty did go through a training program which also includes 8 training classes with her adoption. However, Betty is truly amazing! Everyone that meets her falls in love with her. She will just roll over and ask for belly rubs. Betty would not do well with cats or small dogs. She is great with children and loves everyone!

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi there, my name is Apollo. I am looking for my loving forever home. I am a energetic 1½- 2 years old, I love to play ball or just go on runs. Don't get me wrong I do have a laid back side, when I'm in the house I lay around nice and close to your feet just in case you might want to pet me from time to time. I currently live with my trainer and she has taught me all basic obedience and in house manners. When home alone I do go into my crate to sleep until you get back I do get some anxiety if left alone so my crate is best for me. My trainer also has her dogs that I like to play with but I don't do too well with smaller dogs than me and I do not like cats. My trainer also has a little human that I love to be around and give kisses. I would love to be a part of an active family that likes to have fun and will love me forever.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Three pit bull mix puppies were rescued after being posted on Craigslist at only 3 weeks old. Their mom was chained to a tree without food, water or shelter. The puppies were in a dirt floor chicken coop, without their mother. When the rescuers arrived most of the puppies had died. Eventually, the mom and these three survivors were rescued. Carmine can be a laid back and want to snuggle; however, he also loves to run after the Frisbee and play in the baby pool! Carmine loves to give kisses. He is shy when meeting new people but he is very curious about them. If a new person sits on a step or the floor he will slowly make his way and start giving kisses. Once he warms up he is a total love-bug goofball. Carmine is not found of dogs who try and dominate him but he does well with friendly pups. He will even snuggle with them. Carmine has never been around young children and he doesn't quite know what to think of them. He is an amazing boy! Please give him a chance!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Payton has had a rough go of life. He would do best as an only dog in a home with adults only. Payton attaches very quickly to people and just longs to be loved. He needs a soul-mate, someone who will talk to him, teach him and share the world with him.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Phoenix was rescued by the Chicago Fire Department when they answered a call of an abandoned building on fire. He was brought to Chicago Animal Control with possible smoke inhalation; however, he was brought to the vet and his lungs were clear. You get the best of both worlds with this pup. He is extremely affectionate and will curl up right next to you or on your lap for hours on end….as long as you give him belly rubs! He is still a young pup so he can also be very playful. He gets super excited to meet new people and dogs; he does tend to jump but he does so gently. He gets along great with other dogs and children. Being a pup he likes to play and rough house sometimes. For that reason we recommend that until he receives basic training he be kept away from smaller dogs and babies. He came in as a stray and because he is so young we don't believe he had a previous owner, or he was discarded very young. His current fosters are teaching him the basic tricks (sit, paw, lay down etc.). He is also learning leash etiquette. When walked, he is very good on the leash until he sees another dog, bunny or squirrel then he begins to pull. He is almost potty trained, he is very good for the most part but has his accidents; another thing his current fosters working on. He had a rough start but his trust is not lost. He has no problem giving you kisses and his belly for rubs. He will be undeniably loyal to whoever decides to adopt him.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Just look at that face! Patient. Curious. Listening. She only wants to be with you and to hear you talk. And those eyes--one blue, one brown! Gaze into those eyes...and wait for sweet Lola's smile. What a remedy for screen-addiction! Just think of the things you can do with this super sweetheart by your side: Go for a run, take a long walk, snuggle on the couch with a book or a remote control. She'll be there! Need to run some errands? She loves her car rides! And Lola enjoys her baths, her ball, bed and Kong toy. She is house trained, and she's smart. Lola doesn't get into anything when left alone in the house, and she doesn't chew on anything but her toys. She knows "sit", "stay", "paw", "leave it", "no", and her favorite, "come"! She is good with dogs who are also good with dogs--but will not put up with cranky-pants dogs. We're not sure what Lola thinks about cats, but we hear she lived with one for a little while. She is good with kids. This doll is about 5 years old and weighs 42 pounds. Her family was forced to give her up because of an unfortunate housing situation and felt they had no other alternative. We know it must have broken her heart, so we are anxious for her to find just the right people to make her happy forever. She only wants to be with her people, to sit near the ones she loves. Lola will make a fine, easy addition to your home and into your heart. Please give us a call to meet this sweet pumpkin!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Mickey is a patch-work pit bull mix, with a Mickey Mouse emblem on his back. He is a good boy who has been patiently waiting for a home to call his own. Mickey is selective with dogs he likes. Generally he loves people, but does not like people or dogs to get in his face, it just makes him nervous. So, he would be best in a home without little children who do not understand. He loves to play fetch and run through the yard! And he does great on walks...he absolutely LOVES walks! And since he is totally housebroken, he will want to take you for walks often. Mickey wants ALL of your attention and will be a great friend to the perfect person. Thank you! Hope to meet you soon!!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I’m looking to find my forever home, and have provided some of my likes and dislikes to see if I’m the missing piece to complete your family. Likes: Walks , playing with my four legged friends (I could use a little work with greeting politely, but LOVE other dogs), getting loved on from any and all people, sunbathing, treats, giving hugs, cuddling on the couch, and following my favorite humans and dog friends around the house. Dislikes: Peanut Butter (hard to believe but I just don’t like it no matter how many times my humans try to feed me it), being left alone for too long (I do best crated when you leave as I like to explore things I shouldn’t if I’m not). Everyone says I’m super smart and I know the signs for “sit”, “stay”, “come”, “down”, and “paw”. I’m super affectionate and like to show my love by giving hugs and I’m never stingy with my kisses. I should mention that I have a quirk, I’m hard of hearing. But once you meet me you don’t even realize that I’m not able to hear, I adapt quickly and never let it stop me from having fun and enjoying life. Also, because of it I’m the most sound sleeper ever , and am not bothered by loud noises like fireworks or sirens.
