Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). George is an absolute staff favorite. He is a handsome adult lab mix. He loves to go for walks, snuggle, snore and kiss. He has the cutest flip flop ears, even though you can tell he has been through something not nice as one has clips in it. Gives him character! He has lived with other dogs and is better with girls than boys. He really wants a family of his own. He could be an only dog just fine, too as he just loves the one-on-one attention. But with the right dog match, he loves to play (see his fun videos). He would be amazing in a home of a quiet couple, senior, family with older kids, or other. He is a goofball, so funny, and time and love will help him show you that part of his amazing personality. He will get comfortable with you, and open his protective heart, and then fall for you like you will for him. No cats for him because he likes to chase squirrels. :) He loves belly rubs and cuddles. George will do better with someone around more often than not or with another dog his size at home. He doesn't love being crated. George asks little of you and is oh, so sweet. P.S. He likes french fries, and LOVES ice cream. Check out his goofy ice cream pics! Check George out on Tumbler too! savinggreatanimalslikegeorge.tumblr.com Georgie Porgie is updated on shots, neutered and has an adopt fee of $125. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

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: Doberman Pinscher (short coat). Regal Tzar is a beautiful 6-yr-old Doberman mix. Saved from a high kill shelter where he should not have been to begin with, this boy is amazing! He is just a love. He enjoys playing ball so much. He is affectionate and sweet. He loves to go for walks and once he knows you, he wants to bond. Check out his new videos! He is a tall boy, just beautiful. He has been said to get along with dogs but a proper intro is always essential. We need to assess him more with other dogs to ensure he can get along. Tzar loves to enjoy the outdoors and then relax with family. We think he was not always treated well in the past so he will love to experience love and affection. Since we have not seen him with kids, we prefer to place him in a home with older children. He will love to go to training school with you and it will be just a wonderful way for him to know what you need from him and he from you. His now updated on all shots, neutered and his adopt fee is $295.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Charlie who has not had many good breaks in his 5 1/2 years of life. He is a gorgeous chocolate brown and white staffordshire and lab boy who loves to go for walks and explore the world. He is so wanting to be wanted and needed. He knows to sit and shake and is uber, super duper handsome. Check out his video and pics! He is nervous of new situations and will require a patient and loving family with an awesome routine so he can see how life will be. He will relax after a while and then fall in love with the life you are showering on him. He hasn't been around dogs for playing while in the shelter environment, which is unfortunate for him. He currently is next to another dog in a boarding facility and doing fine. We will want to spend time to see how he is with other dogs so while we do that, we would love a foster with no other animals so he can focus. He will surprise us all in a good way. His history is that he has lived with other dogs. Charlie is now neutered and updated on all shots. This handsome hunk has an adopt fee of $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Oh my goodness, we love this girl. Zoey is an 18-month-old blue girl and as you can see from her videos, is super loving and ready to be part of a family! Zoey loves people, too. She is eager to learn from you and to please. Zoey is a great girl, super athletic, and just stunning with her blue beauty. She is outgoing in her personality, very colorful and smart, funny and happy. She loves to fetch! She loves to run and hike! She currently lives with Jet, another staffordshire, but he is older and she is young and needs to be either the only dog in the home or a match of her similar age and energy level. She also would do better with a more beta personality as she is a confident young lady. At home with Jet, she gets on great, sharing beds, toys and food. But outside it gets a bit rough for him because she loves to play a lot, so we must find a better match for Zoey-girl. She is great on the leash and knows many commands and listens. She was trained with a very light vibration collar and is learning quickly. She wants to please and is a hoot! She does get riled up a little on walks when she sees another dog, and that is common for leashed dogs who tend to do better off leash than on. All said, we think a single dog home to dote on her will be perfect unless you have breed experience. Zoey is not good with cats or small critters as she does love to chase to catch. She is updated on all shots, spayed and her adopt fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Meet Casanova! Stunning patches on this precious blue-nosed blue and white staffordshire sweetie pie. As handsome as the name he's been given, he is the cutest little bully in town! Casanova is a happy 4-year-old with amazing and yummy big ears! He loves everyone and is typically ok with other dogs. He can get a little guarded around other dogs and shows some stiff body language at times. We think he will be happiest as the only dog in the home. He loves to go for walks and play outdoors and then snuggle in tightly with his people. He is smart and eager to learn all that he can from you and to spend the rest of his life as a member of your family. Please watch Casanova's videos! We don't think Casanova has ever seen a cat, so we will say no to felines for now. He is neutered, up-to-date on his vaccines, weighs about 55 pounds and his adoption fee is $395. He is ready to go! We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Red Heeler (medium coat). Meet Bullwinkle! This girl is a happy and very active 7 year old. Bullwinkle's greatest joy in life is running around and playing with balls. She has a lot of energy and her current owners are unable to offer her the amount of attention she needs. Bullwinkle loves other dogs and plays well with them. She is also good with kids. She has a lovely temperament and would do very well with someone who has an active lifestyle and who likes to go for long hikes or enjoys playtime with their dog. She will need a good sized yard to run around in. Heelers are working dogs and need to be provided with sufficient stimulation to prevent them from becoming frustrated. Bullwinkle can do well with cats once properly introduced. She can be possessive over food and her ball, but with some guidance this behavior is very manageable. Bullwinkle is up to date on vaccination and is spayed. Her adoption fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!
