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: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Shepherd / Mixed. Kodi is a goofy girl who loves to smile! We think she's a mix of bobtail and some sort of shepherd, and is believed to be a middle-aged adult. She had several benign masses removed early on in our care, but she is very healthy and happy now! She is house trained and walks happily on a leash right beside you. She is a smart girl who knows sit, stay, up, down, and shake with both paws! She can be anxious at times, but she wants nothing more than to be loved and adores cuddles. She loves fetch and squeaky toys, but long walks aren't her style. Kodi can make friends with calm dogs who respect her space, but is recommended in a home without children. 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!

      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed. Hi! My name is Corey! 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 may have some beagle mixed in me, because I do howl when I have something to say (especially when I see my mom pick up the leash!). If you're looking for a couch buddy, who still likes to go for walks and car rides, I'm ready to go!

      rescue
      Breed: Chi-Corgi
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Corgi / Mixed. Hi! My name is Leela! I was found at an abandoned home with a very badly injured eye. I was held in the shelter for 3 months and had the eye removed, and have now been rescued by Hope Animal Rescue. I'm about 2 years old and weigh 11 pounds. My foster parents say I'm a sweet girl who loves to run and play, but also snuggle on the couch with my humans. I love having my belly rubbed. And walks are so fun and amazing! I can run all day! I am quite afraid of children and would feel safest in an adult-only home. No one knows exactly what happened to me in my past life that led to me losing my eye, but I'm getting better everyday at being out in public, feeling safe, and trusting others. It takes some time for me to feel safe around new people, but once I do, they can be my new best friends! It can be hard only having one eye - it's easy to get spooked and startled! I think my perfect home would be one with some great and patient dog-loving grown-ups, another dog to be my playmate, and not too much change (not lots of visitors, travel plans, etc). If that's you - let's talk! If you'd like to meet me, please fill out an application here, and a foster coordinator will be in touch within 48 hours. Thanks!

      Breed: Doxie-Pin
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Dachshund / Mixed. This is Sadie! She is between three and five years old. We believe she is a dachshund/chihuahua/min pin mix. She is very affectionate and would spend all day snuggling with her foster mama if she could. She also follows her foster mama around the house like a shadow. Sadie loves to give kisses and, since she’s shorter than everyone else, she jumps real high so that she can try to kiss her mama’s face. Sadie enjoys playing with her foster brother and would do best in a home with another dog. She is also good at playing by herself and she seems to prefer chewing on stuffed toys. Sadie is heart worm positive and started her heart worm treatment recently. She is available for our foster to adopt program; the adopter would begin to care for Sadie in their home while she undergoes treatment. Sadie would still be part of Hope Animal Rescue and the rescue would pay for her heart worm treatment and other expenses until treatment is completed. Once her treatment is complete, her adoption would then be finalized. To be considered for the HAR foster to adopt program, please submit an application at www.hopeanimals.org/adoption-application.
