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: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Adoption Fee: $150.00. Beautiful Blonde Looking for Love! Young beautiful, ambitious, outgoing blonde with dreamy eyes looking for that special someone preferably a woman with patience and love that will last for a lifetime. I've been hurt in the past so we will need to take it slow. When I'm not at my best, loud voices don't help, please be stern and firm as I am still learning and I want to please, when I scared, I do piddle. I am currently crate training and have been doing very well with this. Some of my interests include long walks, squeaky toys, running and chew toys, I love to play in water and I love to dig in the yard. Sometimes I chew on things I shouldn't. I also get along well with others and I am very active and would do well with a companion of the same age. I love to play a lot and I love children. I also love to bark when I hear things outside, sometimes I go overboard. With love, patience and some work I will make someone an excellent companion and protector. And my absolute favorite thong to do is snuggle on the sofa and watch TV with you. If you think you have what it takes to keep a gal like me in line, and will let me shower you with unconditional love and lots of kisses, then give me a shout, I'm waiting!! Please note, I will need a companion animal, I do not do well alone and a large yard for exercise as I am very active. No apartment living.

      Breed: Black Mouth Cur-Boxer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      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)

      Posted Breed: Blue Lacy / Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Hey there! My name is Alistair and I am sure to keep you on your feet and a smile on your face! Humans say I am high energy... they like to smile and watch me run circles around them! My favorite things to do are run and exersice with you, I also love to learn new things! I am very easy to train and always eager to please YOU! I know how to run next to a bicycle and I love my backpack! My foster mom lets me fill my backpack full of water bottles to water all the thirsty plants on the trails! My official job is "Plant Watering Expert". I also love my toys and I do my best when stimulated! I have an ENDLESS supply of energy too! Foster Mom teaches me something new every day! Today I learned how to "get the door" when you hang a rope off of it too! I like to get head scratchies and belly rubs. I know how to "sit", "speak," "high five" and "wait", and at the door. We are working on "roll over" and I'm so excited! I will ring the bell hanging from the door when I need to go out and I am also a very good boy on a leash and an outstanding guard dog! I like to walk and trot or run on the treadmill and sometimes when I have the zoomies Foster Mom will say, "Treadmill, Alistair!" And I just jump on and start going! (I probably have the Olympic Record for longest treadmill dog time at 40 minutes!) I love to go on adventures to the dog park. I have a blast sniffing and meeting all the new friends and playing in the water. I should also mention I LOVE ICE! I also love to go on car ride adventures to the cookie place (pet store) and smooshy drink place. (Starbucks for Puppy Lattes). I like childrens too! Sometimes I play kind of rough though so I should probably be in a home with an experienced dog family and older childrens and no kitty cats because I have a VERY strong prey drive! I think that toys look better with no stuffing and when I get a new toy or dog bed I make it my mission to remove all the stuffing! Hahaha! I am very responsive to your tone and volume and I do better with a calm correction. My recent eye surgery left me with a lot of pent up energy too so foster Mom takes me on long walkies or bike rides every day! I got to meet a nice white hair lady in a wheelchair today too! Foster Mom said I was such a GOOD BOY! I let the white hair lady pet me and scratch my head and I just sat and looked at her! I think if I could go to school I would make an amazing service dog to somebody! Do you think we would be a good match? Do you like adventure and exercise as much as I do? If you do then I think we'd be great together. Hope to meet you soon! Love and kisses, Alistair.

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Shogun is a very sweet and good boy! He loves people, kids, and other dogs! He tries to make friends everywhere he goes. He is (literally) best friends with our other foster, Tess. You will see her in many of his pictures. He has really good dog manners and communication. He is a big derpy old lab soul! (Picture old farm dog laying by the farmer that never leaves his side.) He constantly wants to please his people. He will be your shadow and best friend, perfect for a little boy or girl to grow up with. Force free training is a must with him as he's very sensitive. He works for treats, praise, and pets! When he gets excited he Rue Rues! (see video) He doesn't bark a whole lot. When he needs to go out and potty he touches the door knob with his nose. He likes to carry the "skin" of his toys around and show them off or hopes to play tug with them. Like any lab he just enjoys carrying things around in his mouth. He enjoys a good bone or one filled with peanut butter. He enjoys the mental stimulation of boredom busters as hes smart and curious and likes to figure things out. He likes going for walks and hikes and walks best on a harness. He is ok in the car now that he knows it means going to good places, especially when Tess goes too. He would do well in any home but would be happiest with a friend to play with. He is a little food aggressive with other dogs and sometimes possessive with new bones, unless it's Tess. He just warns them they are getting too close when he's eating and that is ok. He's probably missed some meals in the past. He likes to sleep curled up in our smaller dog's dog bed. He doesn't like being up on the couch or bed. He's a really good dog. How he ended up in the shelter so long is a mystery to me.

      rescue
      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Rhame for more information about this pet. Russell is an extremely shy, neutered, 1 year old little boy. His shyness can be a lot to deal with if you are not an experienced dog owner. He needs a very patient pet owner that has experience with shy dogs. He has been known to bolt from new people until he's comfortable. He is about 12 pounds and loves to run and play and just be near his person once he gets to know you. 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 help with his transition and for bonding purposes. An ideal home for Russell would be a single person home or a couple who spends most of their time at home. Another dog would be good to help him feel more secure although he'd be okay as an only dog. Not kids please! He needs a calm quiet environment. And he is micro chipped. Please consider giving this sweet boy the forever home he deserves.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. 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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Petrie for more information about this pet. Winnie is a sweet girl who is very attached to her person. She is very yappy if kept away from you. She is quiet when she can be with you and hangs right with you. She gets along with the other fosters and holds her ground in spite of the fact they outweigh her by about 30 pounds. Think she is housetrained but not in the house so can't be certain. She is not an outdoor dog. She wants to be able to cuddle with you and love on you and that's hard to do if you are outside. She can be a little cautious at first but doesn't take long to come around. She would make a great addition to your family!

      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!
