More About Labrador Retriever Breed
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.

I love running and playing outside, playing tug and fetch, chewing on antlers and bones and acting silly. I would make a great walking or running partner and I'm most happy when I'm well exercised.

      Breed: Boxer-Mastiff Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Winston is very sweet, affectionate, and eager to please; he loves car rides. He is very athletic and would make an excellent running or cycling partner. He is smart and capable of laser-like focus. He is easily motivated to train with either food or toys. He knows sit, down, place, look, come, stand, out, leave it and heel. He loves to play tug and can play fetch for days. Winstonis an absolutely amazing dog but he will need a very special adopter. The ideal adopter will need to have experience with dogs. Winston requires constant structure and guidance to reap all he has to offer. Winston gets overstimulated when other dogs are around, so for that reason he should be the only pet in his FURever home.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ebony is a loving and playful dog! She aims to please and loves her people so much. She's a professional snuggler and wants nothing more than to curl up with you on the couch. She really is one of the most affectionate dogs. Ebony gets along beautifully with her two foster fur-brothers and loves to run and wrestle with them in the yard. But she also respects boundaries and settles when they tire of playing, or you ask her to calm down. Ebony has a high prey drive so should not go to a home with small dogs, cats, or other little critters. She listens well and is not needy. She has wonderful house manners and has not been destructive at all, has not had any accidents, and is very calm in the house. She also goes into her crate on command and sleeps wonderfully through the night. Ebony loves children and has been gentle and loving with everyone including babies. She could use some work on leash manners and would benefit from some training classes. She wants so badly to play with all dogs that she meets, that she can become over stimulated and barky when she sees strange dogs on a leash. But Ebony is very smart, and very treat motivated, so this is something she is working on and will overcome! In her foster mom's quiet neighborhood with fenced yard, its not even an issue at all!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi! I'm Beauty! Since I've spent a lot of time living outside, I am a little shy and nervous at first in new situations, but I am making rapid progress in my current foster home. Once I am comfortable, I am VERY loving and playful. I love to romp in the yard with my foster momma's other dogs, or just hang on the couch chewing on a bone or cuddling with my foster mom. I am still adjusting to those weird noises of the city and people, but I am slowly getting the hang of it! I would love a home with a family that can give me a few weeks to get comfortable and put some work in to building my confidence.

      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Reese is your typical, beautiful hound dog. She loves going on long walks, running around the yard, and she loves car rides!! She is a chewer so any stick or toy she can find she will play with for hours, but she does not like to share so if there are other dogs in the home it's best to let them have their own toy time. Reese is a very shy girl, you need to earn her trust. She is looking for someone to show her love and patience. Once she knows she is safe she is the sweetest girl!! This goes for humans and dogs. Her perfect family will be people who can give her enough time and space to become the wonderful pup she has become in her foster home!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Prissy came to us by way of her owner passing away.

She is now in a home with 5 resident dogs and does well- she pretty much stays to herself. She uses a doggy door. Prissy would be perfect as an only dog but wouldn't mind having other laid back dogs in the home. She sleeps a lot, as she is 13 years old. She enjoys sitting in one's lap and does not require much exercise. Prissy is a low maintenance happy pup who would love a home to call her own.
