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.

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed. Hi everyone, I am Little D! I am guessed to be around 5 years old and I love pretty much everyone I meet. I am a bit wobbly on my feet at times, likely due to cerebellar hypoplasia, but it doesn't slow me down much. If I topple over, I get right back up and go, go, go! I would love to meet you! Cerebellar hypoplasia is often congenital and isn't typically a progressive problem. It just makes them walk like they have had one too many adult beverages, and shouldn't cause problems later in life. He is the life of the party, wherever he goes!

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hi! My name is Beezy. If you like to unwind at the end of the day by snuggling on the couch and catching up on your favorite TV shows, I am the girl for you! I would love nothing more than to curl up in your lap or next to you. My second favorite activity is going on walks. I am house trained and leash trained, and my foster parents say I trot around the neighborhood like I own the place. I think that means they like my confidence and peppy attitude. I get along well with my canine foster sister, and I'm learning how to share toys instead of running off to hide them from her under the bed. She's being patient with me, and even lets me share the big dog bed with her! I don't love being in the crate when my foster parents are away, but a peanut butter-filled Kong helps me pass the time until they come back home. Despite my big girl attitude, I'm easily startled and nervous around new folks, and I would prefer to live in a quiet home without small children or cats. To be considered for adoption, please submit an application at www.hopeanimals.org/adoption-application. Thank you! Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!

Jasper is very sweet and affectionate, but likes attention in small doses. He needs a home without kids, as he doesn't always like to be pet for long periods of time, but we are working on that with the help of a wonderful trainer. He LOVES to play with other dogs, but likes to chase the kitties, so a home without cats is ideal. He would love a family to continue working with him, and he would love to meet you!

He is estimated to be around 13 years old, and around 20 lbs of fluffiness. He has lived with cats and dogs, whom he isn't bothered by, but he most prefers the company of people-- he loves all people and seems great around kids in the dog park. In his foster home, Wallace enjoys following his foster mom around the house, laying in her lap, and resting at her feet while she works at her desk. But mostly, he just loves to sleep next to wherever his person is. He would love to meet you!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed. Hi! My name is Corey! I have a few funny nicknames, like Coreysaurus :) I am a senior, about 11 years old, and weigh around 17 pounds. My favorite things to do include: burrowing under blankets, sleeping often, and going for walks! My foster mom says that I am great on a leash and that I am a very smart and sweet boy. I love humans and saying hi to new people! I also like to hide and take naps in small hidden places, like under your bed, or in the back of your closet. I like small cozy spaces, so I'm pretty good in my crate if you need me to go in. I do tend to "sing" when you leave me, at least for a few minutes, just because I miss you, but then I calm down and go to sleep. I love to be held, and will even let you hold me like a baby!

      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed. My name is Crunchy and I’m a 15-year old pomeranian! When I first came to the rescue, I was a hot mess… Hope Animal Rescue could tell I’m the kind of dog who wants to age gracefully, so they have been working to get my coat to grow back to it’s former glory (it’s almost there!). They even got me a dental cleaning, so I now have a sparkly and charming smile. I am lookin’ fine and feeling even better… so much so that my foster mom tells me I look like some of the coolest and smartest celebrities— Johnny Depp… Albert Einstein… even Tina Turner! I’m a fan of the finer things in life—a soft dog bed for napping, treats, and lots of petting. I also love to go out for a night on the town, but you won’t catch me in any tabloids because I like to keep it classy and drama-free! So if you’re a paparazzi, or even one of those instragram-famous people, come to an event to meet me! I might let you snap a selfie with me, or even give you my paw-tograph!
