Gracie is affectionate, loyal and devoted female yellow Labrador Retriever mix. She is 8 years old, healthy, up to date on shots, spayed and house trained. Weighs 75 pounds. She need a new home because of health issues that both her owners face. She is not a hypo-allergenic dog, and her owner has breathing problems. What Gracie offers: Unconditional, total, absolute love. Whenever we come home, she is ready and waiting at the door. A beautiful thing to come home to. Intelligent. Shes a truly brilliant dog. She is quick to learn most commands (I say most because, no matter how we try, weve never been able to train her to fetch. Everything else was quickly and easily learned. I think she considers it beneath her *joke* . She quickly learned our schedules and will actually come to nudge me when its bedtime. Beautiful. She is beautiful to look at, and has an absolutely beautiful personality. Obedient. She really is very obedient although, she really DOES obey my husband more than me. Hes definitely her alpha. When theres food involved, she is, admittedly, a lot slower to obey. But she gets there. Quiet. Weve had her about 7 years, and I think shes barked 20 times or less. Usually to get our attention if shes outdoors. She adores children and people in general and is good with cats. Gracie needs a loving home where she can be the only dog. She is generally good with other large dogs, but has a very strong dislike of small dogs, particularly little dogs showing aggression or dominance. Gracie MUST be on a leash at all times when outside the home. (If she is on a leash, obviously, she is more controllable. Also, when on a leash, she will lunge at a small dog, but she will stand down when ordered firmly by the human with her.) This is important for her new family to understand. Gracie would not be a good dog to take to a dog park for exercise.

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.
