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: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Anton is a cute little guy who is good with other dogs and would be really happy to have a dog pal to play with. Anton was not treated well by a male in the past and as a result, is very scared of men. He will need to be in a female-only household. He will bond with his people very nicely and craves loves and attention. He does not love to be alone a lot during the day so if you are home more than not or have another pet, it will really fill his heart. Anton would love to live with a patient and kind female who loves to cuddle. He is very deserving. He knows sit. Stay. Shake. Down. Off. He is so smart. He loves, loves his walks and is great on a leash. But he is very timid and really needs an experienced handler and someone willing to give him a constant routine. He can bark at strangers when on walks and will do best in a more quiet environment and in a home with a yard. Anton is up to date on his vaccinations and is neutered. His 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-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Emmy - Preci...

      rescue
      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Bellevue, WA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Sweet Emmy! Emmy is a beautiful and sweet, sweet, 2-yr-old fawn-and-white staffordshire girl who was abused, and shot by someone with a BB gun. We aim to show her the best life ever, as she is so deserving and wonderful, loving humans regardless. She is just 57 lbs. She will give kisses and wags her tail and love affection. Emmy was kenneled with another dog at the shelter (see video, they call her Roxy before she was renamed) but we believe she will be best as an only dog in your home, especially to receive all the love you have to offer. She is very interested in cats so a feline-free home will suit her well. She is in training though, and doing very well. Emmy is in a loving foster home. Below are the key notes from her foster mom :) 1. Emmy's a sound sleeper so she's not going to disturb the sleep of an owner who lets her sleep on the bed. 2. I haven't heard Emmy bark one time, so I would classify her as "not a barker". This will appeal to anyone who's ever dealt with a barker. 3. Emmy would be great for a runner on sidewalks or out in the country, as she prefers to trot on her walks. Because her attention is focused forward and up (not nose to the ground stopping to smell the roses) she keeps forward momentum. When she learns the etiquette of staying with her human (not veering towards squirrels or barking dogs behind fences) she'll be an ideal running partner. 4. Emmy would be great for a hiker. I've taken Emmy into the grassy hills around my house and she's interested in the birds hiding in the bushes. Even in 40 degree weather she wants to be outside. She's got stamina (up to an hour up and down steep hills, nonstop with no signs of stopping). Anyone who's ever dealt with a dog who quits mid-hike will will appreciate Emmy's athleticism. 5. Emmy isn't fixated on any one toy, and is especially disinterested in balls. This will appeal to anyone who's ever tried to interact with a ball-obsessed dog. 6. I let Emmy go where she wants while I'm working, and she tends to want to be sleeping next to my desk or sitting on a chair next to me, looking out the window. 7. Emmy demands very little special attention but she likes to be present with a person. 8. Emmy loves cuddles! She is spayed, updated on all shots, and ready for your love. 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-$395. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

They are known for herding and picked commonly for farms due to their abilities in gathering up the troops! So, his breed needs something fun to do, so if you are active, he will love it!
