Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Hi my name is Betty! I am about 14 years old but I feel 9! Actually the vet says I look really good for a lady my age. I am looking for my perfect retirement home, someplace to relax by the heater in a nice cozy bed, lay on your lap while you rub my ears and I fall asleep! Oh, and also someone to serve me meals and give me snacks. I am temporarily living in a foster home with my foster mom and canine and feline foster siblings; I am good with other dogs and cats. I love them all but want a bed of my own and people of my own! Because of my age I do have cataracts and can't see very well, but this doesn't bother me one bit... just give me a few days and I'll have the layout of your house down pat. I am house trained, but do need to go outside frequently (my bladder isn't what it used to be). Please send my foster mom an application! Any questions about me, you can email rescuemesadie@gmail.com and she will be more than happy to talk to you. I am up to date on vaccines, deworming, flea prevention, and heart worm testing and prevention. I also had a recent teeth cleaning and extractions. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org

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: Black and Tan Coonhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Lola, I'm not a show girl! But my foster Mom says I am beautiful anyway! I have a crazy underbite that catches my lip whenever I yawn and gives me a silly face. I'm told it just gives me "character" (whatever that is). I am a very loving lady who seeks attention from my people. I just want to be pet or hugged or pretty much anything if it is a human showing me they love me. I crave it so much I will even be content to sit by you with my head on your lap and fall asleep sitting up. And even though they guess I am 2 years old, I can still have some puppy fun. I am being fostered with mostly little dogs and I am careful not to get too rough if I can convince one of them to play with me. My favorites are the little puppies I am being fostered with. I really enjoy my toys and my treats too and even though I can barely hold back my excitement, I do my best to sit and wait my turn. I don't like it much if I have to be kept away from the activity but when it's bedtime, if you give me something yummy to chew on, I will take it to my bed and enjoy it before settling down for the night. Like most hounds, I do like to follow my nose and sometimes it takes me to places where I'm not supposed to help myself. But I am quickly learning what my boundaries are and am trying really hard not to break the rules. I would really love a family with a fenced in yard where I can stretch my legs and run and I think I could be OK in a home with or without other animals. I haven't met a cat yet but my foster Mom can see how I am with them if an adopter needs to know. If you are looking for a loyal girl without a mean bone in her body, maybe I'm the one for you? ***Please note the collar you see me wearing is not a shock collar but a GPS tracker I wear "just in case". *** Lola is spayed, microchipped and up to date with all her vaccines. If you'd like the chance to meet her, please fill out an application at www.sadiesrescue.org.

      Breed: Bluetick Coonhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Bluetick Coonhound. My name is Mary, before coming to Sadie's I lived outside, in dirt, tied up with hardly any shelter. My orginial rescuers thought I was pregnant as I had a pretty swollen belly. Come to find out, I wasn't pregnant, I was just bloated and feeling yucky. I missed my orginial transport date to Sadie's because I just wasn't well enough to make the long drive. I was finally well enough to travel to WNY and I am now learning all about what it means to be a Sadie's dog. First, I feel like people actually care about me here, I feel this special connection to my foster family, they saved my life. They give me a lot of love, cuddles, and lots of belly rubs. I get to eat, out of actual bowls, not just "stuff" off the ground, I am warm and soooo comfy. I went to the doctor and got spayed, I had a little complication so I had to have a second surgery but I am on the road to recovery. I'm starting to feel like myself again, but a "new" self, a better, happier self. I used to spend my days curled up in a dirt pile, but now...let me tell you, this life is amazing. Don't get me wrong, I have a lot to learn as I've never been in a house before. But I am trying really hard and my foster family says I am improving every day. I am actually learning about a crate, it was scary at first but I am actually starting to really like it. It is helping me understand the idea of house training, but I am doing really well. Mary has a lot of love to give, she is looking for the perfect home to help her training needs. Mary is spayed, microchipped and up to date with her vaccinations. Apply to adopt Mary at www.sadiesrescue.org

      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hi people, I'm Lyla! I'm 10 months old and I still have all my puppy energy (or maybe that's my border collie energy, we're not really sure). Since I have lots of energy, I LOVE to go to doggie day care with my foster brother. When we're not at doggie day care we're wrestling in the house or running around in the yard. I like to get all my energy out so I can cuddle with you on the couch before sleeping through the night with you in the human bed. After I warm up to you, I love everyone I meet! But I run fast and jump kind of high, so I might be too much for small kids. I have a little bit of anxiety in the crate, but that's just because I love to be with my humans so much, I don't want you to leave me behind! When I have to stay home alone I get a frozen peanut butter bone in my crate to keep me busy. I love peanut butter bones! I would love to have a four legged sibling so we can play like my foster brother plays with me now. We have so much fun together! I briefly met a cat the other day and she really didn't interest me much. Lyla is up to date on vaccinations, spayed and on flea and heartworm prevention. Lyla is available for adoption at www.sadiesrescue.org.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Springville, NY
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hey Chihuahua fans! Meet Chip, a special little senior chi mix. He loves belly rubs, going for walks, and napping by your side. Whether it's a day lounging at home or riding in the car to an adventure, he wants to be with his people! It takes a bit of time for him to trust someone, but once he does he's a wonderful, sweet, lovable, and loyal companion. Chip needs a forever home where he'll get plenty of TLC and knows he's safe and loved. Chip is around 10 years old, 11 pounds, is house trained, crate trained, excellent on a harness and leash, knows basic commands, understands many common words, and great in the car. He can learn to co-exist with other animals if they give him plenty of personal space, but he prefers the company of people. He would do best in a home without other pets, or possibly one or two other mellow pets. He loves children, but needs supervision with them (like any dog does) to ensure positive interactions. He will have to be given an affordable arthritis medication as needed. Chip is up to date on all vetting, including vaccines, de-worming, flea prevention, heart worm prevention, and is neutered. His adoption fee is $175. Apply to adopt at www.sadiesrescue.org
