Posted Breed: Siberian Husky / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Bright-eyed and bushy tailed! That's a fitting description of our boy Solo! Solo is a truly STUNNING boy, with one blue eye and one brown eye! But his looks are just a PLUS on top of all his other great qualities! Solo has TONS of personality and is very outgoing with people. He'd love to be someone's constant companion... on car rides and outings, hikes, dates - you name it! He's always "up" for anything! In his foster home, he enjoys playing fetch, playing with toys, SNUGGLING, or just laying quietly by his foster mom's feet. (ok, maybe that last part is after a busy day!) This boy is highly intelligent, and very eager to learn. He is very food motivated, which makes training a fun and easy task with him! And he always wants SOooooo much to please! Solo is quite an active boy and needs a family who is active, wants to spend a lot of time with their dog, and will provide him with regular stimulation and exercise. In his foster home, he enjoys spending lots of time romping, wrestling, and playing with the other dogs, so we believe he would do best in a home with another dog for companionship and a fenced yard for off-leash play is a must. (Solo does not always get along with male dogs, so ladies only please!) He does not have a lot of cat experience or experience with children. For this reason, he should not be placed with cats or children under the age of 10. All Solo needs is a great family to share all of his cool characteristics with! So if Solo strikes you as the fun-loving, wonderful companion that we know him to be, please inquire! Placement Requirements: fenced yard female canine companion active family who spends a lot of time with their dog no children under the age of 10 years How To Adopt Me: Step 1: First, p lease be sure you have read this pet's entire description in order to decide whether this particular pet is a good candidate for your family. We try to include as many details as possible about each pet, including the type of placement needs and requirements they have for adoption. Step 2: Be sure to read our adoption policies and procedures before contacting us. Step 3: E-mail us to request an adoption application and/or inquire about this pet.

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.

      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Pet's Bio: Fun Loving Luigi! Luigi is a silly, fun, and personable little guy. He absolutely LOVES people and is always the "popular guy" at our adoption events! Boston Terriers are often referred to as "little comedians" and Luigi certainly fits the bill. He just makes people laugh with his silly antics. He loves to throw himself on his back and wiggle around while you rub his belly. He also loves to play with toys, either entertaining himself (he's really a hoot!) or playing fetch with his human. He also enjoys romping and wrestling with the other dogs in his foster home. He can play rough with other dogs though so is not a good fit for a senior dog or a timid dog.. Luigi is an active dog so will best fit with a person or family who can provide plenty of attention, exercise and stimulation. He would do ok in an apartment provided he gets enough physical and mental stimulation. (We can make recommendations.) Even though Luigi is super friendly, because of his excitability he is not a good fit for young children or seniors. Pet Details: Age: approx 2-3 yrs old Breed: Boston Terrier mix Size: approx 20 lbs Activity level: Active Good with dogs? LOVES them Good with cats? Unknown Good with kids? friendly but activity level not compatible with young children House-trained? YES Crate-trained?

He loves to romp & play and once he is tired he loves to be cuddled to sleep by his human. He is sooooooooo adorable when his eyes get tired and "blinky"! Oscar loves to play with other dogs, big and small. (Obviously because of his size, bigger dogs must be gentle with him!) He would love to have a home with another dog but as long as he gets plenty of time and attention from his human he will probably do well as an only as well. He has not been introduced to cats but we could cat-test him if needed. Oscar is an active and excitable little dog so needs a family who can handle that and provide lots of activity and stimulation for him.

The photo collage shows a mix of his goofy side and his occasional "serious" side, but really, his mouth is usually wide open in that big happy grin! Cole is a friendly guy and loves meeting new people. In fact, at adoption events he almost always "weasles" himself in if another dog is getting attention. You might call him an "attention hound". <grin> Cole is good with children who are calm around him and he absolutely LOVES other dogs. We would like to place him in a home with another dog for companionship. We have not tested Cole with cats but because he has such a wonderful temperament we suspect he would be fine with them.

Bandit loves to romp and play with other dogs, big or small. He adores toys and will readily amuse himself with them. The best way to describe Bandit is a fun-loving guy who just loves life and is happy to express that! Bandit is going to do best in a home with another dog for companionship. He would make a GREAT companion for another dog who loves to romp, wrestle, and play. A fenced yard would be ideal for this boy so he can spend lots of time outside with his canine buddy. (But of course he wants a nice place to come in after playtime to chill out and relax!) Bandit is a little reserved and wary of new people. A hand full of treats and a patient introduction, however, and Bandit will quickly become your best friend. He enjoys calm, gentle children but would not be a good candidate for a home that has young children. We have not tested him with cats but believe because of his terrier nature that he would not be good with them.

He loves to snuggle and give kisses! He's a real lap dog...but he also loves to race around and play with toys. Petey lives with other dogs in his foster home but he is not very tolerant of them.

Like many Chihuahuas and Chi mixes, he can be a little bit shy/nervous but is very friendly with people who go slowly and are gentle with him. He actually really likes people! Also like many tiny dogs Petey is a bit "barky" so that should be a consideration for families living in apartments. Because of Petey's tiny stature and lack of experience with children, we not place him in a home with children under the age of 10. Similarly, because of his size we will not place him in a home with a large breed dog unless the dog specifically has prior experience with tiny dogs.

      Posted Breed: Beagle (short coat). Wake up and smell the Daisy... er, um, maybe wake up and NOTICE Daisy? (How could you not???) This girl is just a DOLL. She has personality PLUS. She is feisty. She is fun. She is lovable, and oh, SO snuggable. Daisy wasn't always such a happy girl though. In fact, her early life included MUCH neglect. She has never looked back since rescue and is now a happy, healthy girl with a little heart of gold! Daisy loves to play with toys, romp with her canine foster siblings, and spend time "exploring" her yard. Yes, true to "beagle form", that nose is always to the ground. Daisy would LOVE to have a fenced yard in her new home where she could continue to be on "beagle patrol". :-) Of course, Daisy isn't all about the great outdoors. She loves to snuggle... with her humans and her canine "siblings". And she is OH, SO SNUGGABLE! Daisy LOVES other dogs and we think she would do best in a home with an outgoing dog for a buddy. We have not tested Daisy with cats but can do so if requested. Daisy has developed some shyness as a result of her early neglect. She is very nervous in public settings/situations but warms up quickly in private household situations. (She has gotten to visit some of our volunteers!!) She will need a family who is understanding of her nervousness and won't force her into these situations that frighten her. We will also provide information and resources on how to help Daisy learn to be more confident. Because of Daisy's shyness, we will not place her in a home with young children. Ultimately, Daisy just wants a home where she will get tons of attention and TLC. (Admittedly, she has been a 'bit' spoiled with us because she is just so cute!.) So, if Daisy touches your heart the way she does ours, please consider this girl for your family.

When people ask us what Bella looks like, our best description is "sort of like a fox"! Bella is a sweetheart of a girl who loves food and belly rubs! She is a social butterfly who has rarely met a stranger. When she first meets you she makes SURE she gets noticed. One of her "tactics" is to sit on your feet and lean into you (looking up adoringly!) Bella is very smart and loves to learn and train. That's where the affinity for food comes in sooooooo handy! Bella is good with certain dogs, primarily males but not terribly tolerant of rowdy behavior. Her ideal home would really be as an only dog where she can be the center of all the love and attention. Bella is NOT good with cats. If it's a fun-loving, affectionate companion you're seeking, then Bella may be the one for you!
