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! To expedite to meet with this dog, please go to our site at www.savinggreatanimals.org and fill out an application. We look at the first applications to arrive, so we hope to hear from you soon!

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: Unknown-Whippet Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Whippet / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Joy is the perfect size! She is a 4 + -yr-old snuggler, ready to be loved. She has a slender face and we think she is a mix of whippet and shepherd. But if she is a heinz 57, she is a cute one! Joy will love to be active with you so if you are inclined for walks, hikes or runs, she will enjoy joining you. She has gone for long hikes and loves it! Joy digs sniffing smells on her walks and will play ball but wants a treat for you to throw. She thrives on learning and doing and going and could possibly do agility training. She is agile and strong. Joy is very well trained and super smart. She responds to commands quickly and eagerly. She knows sit, stay, leave it, find it, shake, rollover, heel and is a delight to train with. She loves to give kisses and rides well in the car, just lying on the back seat or looking out the window. She smiles a lot and loves to be with people. We recommend her for a home with older children (over 10) only. Joy is a sensitive girl, loud sounds or if you raise your voice, etc. so she will need a gentle and firm leader. She also will do better with someone around more often than not as she does not love staying home by herself for long periods of time. Joy likes other dogs but is more of a leader type so a submissive pal is best. She does well with bigger dogs vs. small. Her current doggie daycare best friend is a German Shepherd. No cats or little critters for this girl. She is updated on all shots, spayed and will love to join you. 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. Thank you for stepping up to save a life! To expedite to meet with this dog, please go to our site at www.savinggreatanimals.org and fill out an application. We look at the first applications to arrive, so we hope to hear from you soon!

      Posted Breed: Terrier (medium coat). Meet Sam, so darling! Sam is the man. He is around 4 1/2 years old and boy are we glad to have rescued him! He was left tied up and abandoned in a back yard and thank goodness he was noticed. He has a lovely wirey like coat and is about 55 lbs, so a nice medium to large size.

He is on the submissive side and a sweet boy. We are not sure he's ever met a cat. We can help proper intro but he also is a terrier so may chase. He is now updated on all shots, neutered and will be chipped. This darling boy's adopt fee is $395.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Chloe! Chloe is a darling little terrier pup. SOOO darling and soft with floppy ears! She will do best with someone home more often than not. She loves a good snooze on your bed. Chloe would do best in a home with other dogs to show her some good pack behavior as she grows. She is a bit territorial with food, toys, and can be protective of her owner. We have tips to help her grow the right way. She's young and can do it. She has not been tested with cats. We recommend a home with no young kids. Chloe is vaccinated, spayed and chipped. Her adoption fee is $395.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Hound / Mixed (short coat). What a cutie pie! This is is 2-yr-old Nia and what a doll. This darling would love to be in a home where there is fun activity, lots of good walks, hikes and more fun. And then time to cuddle and snooze! She found herself homeless and we have rescued her, so grateful, because she is awesome! Nia wants to be loved and you can give her no greater joy than to cuddle and play with her. She will roll over on her belly for rubs any chance she gets. She is truly a loving soul. Nia gets a little nervous around other dogs. We feel that with proper intro, she can so well with another dog. A bit of leash training will help her too. We can provide tips! She is now updated on all shots, spayed and will be chipped. Her adopt fee is $395. 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: Shepherd (short coat). His eyes hit us. He needed to be rescued. This sweet boy did not deserve to die in a crowded shelter but rather have his loving years in a home where he matters. Meet Henry who is a 10-yr-old shepherd boy with the sweetest face and eyes. He may look his years but has plenty of life in him and despite not having been treated well, he loves to go for walks and needs them for his muscle tone. His teeth are worn down a bit but he loves a good meal. Let's find a great home to love this boy; you will receive so much in return. He is updated on shots, neutered and would love a family.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Tsar 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. He is a hoot and shows how much he loves your company. He is a tall boy, just beautiful. He takes treats softly, loves people and will make someone a great family friend! We think a no doggie home is best for him, so he can soak up all the love. He potentially lived with dogs in the past but had not been integrated properly and while he may like a dog, he is best just living the good life with you. Tsar loves to enjoy the outdoors and then relax with family. He loves affection. He is strong and so using a Wonder Walker or Gentle Leader on walks will make it great for you all. He has Dermal Hemangiosarcoma where we are removing small soft growths from his belly every so often. He is doing just great and it bothers him none. Tsar is best on a grain-free diet. His now updated on all shots, neutered and his adopt fee is $195.

      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!

She was found on the streets of Iran with a broken leg many months back but she is all healed up now and doing great and is a total love! Nessie loves adults and does fine with male dogs. She gets jealous of female dogs and is not good with small dogs. A boy dog her size to play with could be fun for her with proper introduction. She could also be an only dog, which would suit her just fine as well. Nessie is a love who likes to be out in the yard and play with a ball. She needs a moderate amount of exercise and is calm in the home. She likes exploring on walks too. She will do better with someone around more often than not or who will take her places.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Joey! Joey is a sweet little chihuahua/terrier mix. He is just 1 year old, so is very ready to have a long and good life. He has pretty black and white coloring and is a loving boy. He is shy at first and takes a while to open up, but once he does, he is super sweet and will be your constant companion. Joey loves children and enjoys their company. He is good with other dogs too. His only challenge is that he gets very worried meeting new people. He would prefer a more quiet home where there is not too much coming and going, which makes a home with children a bit of a challenge for him (even though he likes kids a lot).
