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.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Tia is a strong-willed girl (read: stubborn but with some manners, haha) who needs someone to be the boss. She needs some work on a leash but does better in a harness. She is extremely strong and is looking for the right person who is able to handle her. Tia is a low-energy dog who likes to alert staff when she sees someone she doesn't recognize. She has been known to scare strangers with her big bark, but when staff pulls her out of her kennel she calms down. She loves to go outside and sniff the grass and could spend hours lazing around in the play yard. While she won't play with any toys that we have here, she does enjoy treats and is extremely smart! Tia likes getting all that undercoat brushed away and creates a strong bond with people she loves (which is all staff here at JCHS!). Tia keeps her kennel extremely clean and is believed to be housebroken. Although she has not been tested with children, we believe that older, more considerate children would be an excellent match for Tia.
