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: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Hello! My name is Argo. I was rescued from the shelter where I was so scared that I didn't act very nice when people or other dogs walked by but once I got out of there my personality started to shine. I am very happy being in a foster home where I can relax. I love to play with my foster brothers and sister. I am all about fetch but then the fun begins as you chase me for the ball. I also love tug-of-war and I don't think that I have ever lost a game. I am very affectionate and love to give kisses. I enjoy a good ol' swim also. My foster mom says I would love to run, hike, or just play ALL day long. I am just a sweet young man that already knows "sit," "stay," "come," "shake," and "lay down." I love to car ride and can jump up into a big truck all my myself. I am just missing a forever family to love. Give me a chance and I will show you what I can do. I am neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, current on shots and heartworm and flea preventative.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Black Mouth Cur / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. I am a very sweet and beautiful girl! I like to play with my toys and if you don't close your sock drawer all the way I love to play a game I invented called "Empty The Sock Drawer". Maybe I can show you how to play sometime? I have ALOT of energy that foster Mom helps me get out with a backpack! I have a VERY important job of "plant watering expert" because I carry bags with water in my backpack to help feed all the thirsty plants along the paths! I'm kinda important like that. I like to meet new friends too! I make friends wherever I go whether it's the dog park, the pet store or just running along with my foster Mom! On rainy days I get to borrow my foster sisters rain jacket and after we go for walkies I get to do the TREADMILL! I am also the BEST CUDDLER EVER. Seriously. I should get an award. I'm THAT good at cuddling. I like to give kisses and crawl all over you if you try to take a nap too! I'm a pretty quiet gal except when I want to play and my sister wants to take nap. I don't enjoy the kennel but I'll go in if you insist. I can be a little skittish with new people so I need somebody who is patient and will help me work through my insecurities. Do you like cuddles and kisses? If you do then we will be a great match! Call me sometime! (And by call me I mean e-mail my foster Mom) Love, Treasure (aka Luv Puppy)

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Nunnallee for more information about this pet. Poncho is very friendly. He is an "easy keeper" and gets along well with other dogs. He has not been around children at all or cats. He is even tempered and likes to ride in the car. He thrives on attention and is well mannered (doesn't jump up) - he likes to lean and be touching but not in an annoying way :0) Poncho is fully vetted - vaccinated, neutered and heart worm negative. He walks well on a leash and loves treats. He quietly kennels and LOVES his people. He has a history of chasing chickens... but that's because he wasn't being FED! We have not tested him out around farm animals since. He does not bother horses nor show interest when they are tied to a picket line.

      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Rhame for more information about this pet. Russell is a super shy, neutered, 7 month old little boy. His shyness can be a lot to deal with if you are not an experienced dog owner. He needs lots of human socialization and has been known to bolt from new people until he's comfortable. He would benefit from lots of training. He is about 7 pounds and loves to run and play and just be near his person. He loves other dogs of all sizes, not sure about cats. He needs some time and patience to adjust to his new home and you will have to earn his trust. He'd do best in a home where someone can be around to complete his potty training and help with his transition. He would not do well with young kids, older would be better. Please consider giving this sweet boy the forever home he deserves.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Amber is shy but very affectionate and plays well with our family German Shepard and another foster dog. She would be best as an only dog in the family. She can walk with leash but needs more practice. Amber is housetrained but still has accidents now and then if the environment is new and different. She can sleep through the night in a crate but has been sleeping in her foster parents room through the night. Her favorite pastime is chasing the tennis ball or any toy you throw. Amber was heartworm postive and treated on 6/15/17. HW & Flea prevention on 7/22/17. Currently on Purina Pro Plan dog food.

      Angel

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Pembroke Welsh Corgi Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Corgi / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Petrie for more information about this pet. Angel is a very playful girl! She loves her people but needs consistency. She is almost never mouthy now but still likes to jump when excited. I think its because she is short and wants to make you see her, but she will sit when told. Someone who is firm and does not allow her to do that will have great success with this great girl. She is a Corgi mix which is a breed that likes to boss the other dogs. Not usually an issue for my other fosters. Most of the time this is a very playful group in spite of Angel's bossiness. She has beautiful eyes and is housetrained. She does great in a crate with her chew toys. She needs the toughest chew toys you can find. Since she is still chewing, I would definitely crate her when you are not home. Angel is a happy girl but needs her people's attention. She wants to curl up next to you or sit in your lap. She loves her toys and will carry them around. She always seems to be smiling. She is not good with children. Mostly because she is protective of her adult people and doesn't care for a lot of chaos. She is leash trained and rides well in the car. In fact, she loves to ride in the car. She is up-to-date on vacs and she is spayed. She is barkie/growly/protective at people she does not know, especially in a crate, but she overcomes that quickly due to her loving and playful nature, especially if given the space to come to you! She would make a great dog for the right forever family!

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact McNeely for more information about this pet. Lucy is a sweet mama dog that had 9 babies in MCAS and was doing the best that she could in a stressful situation. Lucy is/was a great mama to her puppies and passes that watchful eye and protecting nature on the other dogs in her pack too. She feels that all the dogs around her are hers to watch out for and take care of -- she is very protective. This protective quality also extends to her/your home - she will help keep strangers out. In her down time Lucy is just a big couch potato who loves hanging out with her people and chilling. I do not know what her life was like before the shelter but I believe it was pretty rough. One look in her eyes and you can tell that for yourself - she has one eye that is a little cloudy and that slightly affects her vision but it does not slow her down! Lucy is house trained and dog door trained. She is heartworm negative and up to date on all her shots. She is not so great on a leash and pulls especially when she wants something. She knows sit but that is about as far as her knowledge of commands go. Cat - well they are just toys that run right? Seriously, she likes to follow the cat and if the cat runs she will chase but she has not tried to harm her once. It is just the running that catches her attention.
