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: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog (short coat). Wiggly butt Dallas is rescued. Yay! He is so affectionate! He is now in a boarding facility but that is not a place for a beautiful boy like this. He really needs a home or foster to settle into. Beautiful white and black markings. He loves to play, run, hike, walk, snooze and cuddle. Proper introduction to other dogs is key and at his still young age, training will be a must for you and for him, so he can be the best pup you've ever had. Dallas is now neutered and updated on all shots. His adopt donation, which often is matched by companies as we are fully non-profit and tax deductible, 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-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      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 doesn't seek out affection. 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. 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-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Age: Adult
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu (medium coat). Meet precious Nico! He has been rescued and groomed and now we can see the sweet shih tzu that he is! Nico is a perfect lil guy looking for a home that will love him and that he can love back. This sweet pea is blind in one eye but it doesn't stop him from still loving life and having fun. He loves to toss toys into the air and leapt about catching them. Nico could use a very affectionate household so that he knows he matters. He wants to be part of a family pack and will take all the love you can give him. He will return it all in spades! He will settle right in. Nico likes other dogs and enjoys playing, followed by a treat, and a snooze. Sounds like a perfect day to us! We are not sure he's even seen a cat but given his personality we predict he will do fine. He seems to have soreness in his front and back legs which we are checking on. Could be age although he is still super spry! He can take walks, just not super long ones, just yet. Nico is now updated on all shots, neutered and his adopt donation (often matched by companies so do check!) is $295.

      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Meet Lola! Lola is a wonderful Formosan dog, a breed that is originally from Taiwan and so unique that the breed is not even listed in most adoptable dog listings. Lola is between 8-10 years old and weighs about 40 lbs. She is a sweet and loving girl who likes things to be calm. She does not appreciate the chaos of children or other animals in the home but will be your loyal companion. She has a pretty shiny black coat and is calm and unassuming. She will bark when people come to the door. Lola walks well on a leash and likes to be in the yard to sniff around and observe the birds and squirrels. Lola will do best in a quiet home. Her current owner can no longer keep her, as Lola is feeling anxious about a new baby in the home. We hope to find her a loving home where she can peacefully live for many more years.

      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.
