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: Golden Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Shepherd. Kodi is a goofy girl who loves to smile! We think she's a mix of golden retriever and some sort of shepherd, and is believed to be a middle-aged adult. She had several benign tumors 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!

      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier. Hi, I'm Franklin! I am an approximately one-year-old Chihuahua/Terrier Mix. I am a playful little guy. I love to wrestle with my 55-pound foster sister and chew on my bones. I can walk on a leash and stay near my foster parents on walks. I am easy going, and I love to curl up and nap on my bed or next to my foster sister. I love being with other dogs and would easily integrate into a multi-dog family. I seldom bark, and I happily go into my crate at the end of the day when it's time for bed. I may take a little while to warm up to new humans, but I get more comfortable with them every day. Because I can be easily spooked by people, I would, however, prefer to be in a home without small children.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle. Here's what Duffy's foster mom had to say about her: "Duffy is a loving girl who just wants any attention you can give her. She is content snuggling up against you, giving nose bonks, or watching you in fascination. She likes to have her floppy ears and squishy neck rubbed. She will even lean into you for a playful wrestling match. Duffy enjoys being around other dogs for companionship and loves playing with puzzle toys on her own. She is curious about visitors who come to the house or children who happen to be out in the neighborhood. Duffy considers everyone her friend. She has yet to vocalize like a typical hound, but she can hold up her end of the conversation with a soft mumble. Duffy has adjusted very well to living inside the house with her family, but she still enjoys sunning herself outside in the yard with her foster friends when the weather is pleasant. This bubbly girl has a lot of energy to burn, so she needs to be exercised daily – either on a leash or in a fenced yard. She is a Beagle after all and can be distracted by her sniffer!" Did we mention she has the softest ears on the planet, it is like therapy to pet her!!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier. Are you looking for a companion to go on long walks around the block with? One who loves to cuddle on the couch and will always let you choose which movie to watch... who just wants to be there by your side, whether it be when you're getting ready in the morning or just hanging out in the yard... who will keep you entertained by throwing toys into the air in front of you? Then look no further! I am Chug, a 1 year old, 15 lb Chihuahua/Terrier mix. You can also call me by my many nicknames: Chuggles, Chug-a-lug, or the Chugster! In addition to the superb qualities previously mentioned, I am crate trained, potty trained, and I know how to sit on command. I get along well with my small foster siblings, and am looking for a forever home that will work on continuing my training to keep me calm, cool and collected around some larger dogs. I love to chase kitties, but for some reason they don't appreciate that, so I'd probably do best in a home without them. If you want to meet up and chat over a bowl of water (no strings attached), come out to an adoption event and get to know me! And if you're more of a fast mover, fill out an application to adopt me today! Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Corgi / Chihuahua. 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 mom says I'm a sweet girl who loves to run and play, but also snuggle on the couch with her humans. 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, feel safe and trusting others. It can be hard only having one eye - easy to get spooked and startled! I think my perfect home would be one with some great 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! Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!
