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.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Gus! Gus was found cold, skinny and alone in a parking lot. He looked like he had been on the run for a quite some time. We are not sure if he was dumped or somehow separated from his owner, but all attempts at finding his owner failed. Now Gus needs a loving home to lie down his weary head. Gus is just under 8 years old and a lab mix. His foster has lovingly fattened him up and he is now healthy and doing well. Gus is a shy boy and it takes him some time to warm up to people. He likes to watch what is going on from a distance and enjoys sleeping in his warm bed or on a corner of the couch. He likes being petted but is unsure at first. Once he trusts you, he is happy with some nice ear scratches or back rubs. He gets along well with other dogs but not with cats. We think he will do best in a home without children or lots of coming and going. Gus likes things quiet and predictable. He also needs proper introduction to new people and we can provide you tips and as long as you follow them to a T, all will be well! We'd love to see this lost boy in a home once again. He is now vaccinated, neutered and ready to be loved. His adoption fee is $195, often matched by employers, so please do check! 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!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Linus 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 sooooo 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. Linus 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. 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!

      Buddy - Will...

      rescue
      Breed: Jack Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Buddy is a beautiful terrier mix with gorgeous green eyes. He is smart and loves to go for walks and is great on the leash. He knows many commands including sit, stay, go to his rug (dog-bed), right there (heel) and off. He’s food motivated and is eager to keep learning! Buddy has been trained to either alert you that he is has to go potty or will use a doggie door. He also is crate trained but is left to roam openly in the home and does just great. He will love chewing on a good bone or toy. Buddy is super affectionate and loves being loved! He loves playing fetch! He loves the backyard fun. He’s done fine at dog parks but really loves one-on-one time. He does love other pooches though and loves to play, play, play. So, a home with another dog may be great for him or he can do fine alone. Buddy has an independent personality and can be a bit stubborn so a strong leader to ensure he knows boundaries is key. He is a little bit insecure so shows that by sometimes trying to challenge you. He will do best in a more quiet setting, even one that is rural and a crowded city and loud noises stress him a bit. Kids make him a bit nervous so we recommend a no young child home. Buddy will love to protect you and your home so slow and proper introductions to new people is key. Once he knows everything will be ok, be settles in nicely. He needs a fenced yard or a yard that doesn’t allow him to escape and chase people, cats, little critters. Buddy can be territorial with his food, couch, etc. So using the off command before you take his place on the couch or move his food, will be key, or he will become a bit nippy and bossy. A solid leader will be respected by him – someone who is firm yet gives him a sense of calm. He is a lovely boy, updated on all shots, neutered and chipped.

Vinny is an awesome companion but needs does need a bit of work. He gets very hyper and can be easily frustrated if he does not get enough exercise.

He will not do well in an apartment and needs a home with a yard when he can run and sniff to his heart's content.

Please contact Raheleh LaCroix directly for more information at: rahelehlacroix@netscape.net or call 206-579-6914. Meet Shawncy! Shawncy is a 2 years -old male German shepherd rescued from Iran. In late 2016 he was found on the side of a road. He had been hit by a car and suffered from a broken back leg. One of our supporters managed to bring him to the capital for orthopedic surgery. Unfortunately the injury was so severe that ended in amputation. Sadly, in Iran many families are not willing to spend money for their ill/injured dog(s) and they leave the animals on the side of the road. It seems Shawncy had a similar history. Shawncy is very smart, friendly with people, adult and children and dogs. He is house trained, knows the commands. He is waiting for his forever loving family.
