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.

      Winnie

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Beautiful Winnie is a totally different dog then when we first got her! Now that she's gotten through all of her heartworm treatments the once very sick girl is a healthy happy energetic pup! She is a complete doll extremely well behaved in the house. She never chews anything and is house-trained and crate-trained. Winnie would greatly benefit from a yard to be able to run around in. She loves all people and adores children. She is a bit socially awkward when it comes to other dogs although she has done well with calm dogs and would probably benefit from being around another (calm) dog. She is in training to help her understand how to be a little less socially awkward when walking on a leash and she responds very well to the training. She is a big fan of hiking doggie yoga (favorite poses are downward child's pose and cat cow) and taking personal health days while everyone else is working so that she can be at her best when everyone gets home! She loves to cuddle and play and is truly an adorable resilient gem. Contact foster@dekalbanimalservices.com to set up a meet and greet with this great pup!
