Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Sharon Goff (sharonmg68@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Spock is in a foster home in the country in Arkansas. He just wandered up one day, looking scared but also happy to find people. Unlike so many other dumped dogs, Spock was lucky because he had found a home where he would be taken in and cared for. The name Spock was chosen by his foster mom because his facial features reminded her of Mr. Spock of Star Trek. But, unlike Mr. Spock who always seemed to be frowning, this canine Spock always seems to have a smile on his face. He is a happy-go-lucky fellow who loves people, other dogs, cats and life in general! The one thing that Spock really wants and does not have at his foster home is to be an inside dog with a real family. He absolutely loves his foster mom and dad and he is so grateful for all they have done for him. He would love to be with them "all the time" and that is just not possible with all of the animals they care for. Spock used a crate while he was recovering from his neuter surgery and loved it! He would probably be housetrained in a short time if a crate was used. Spock does like to jump (usually straight up and down for his food and treats) and needs work on this and his other manners. He does walk on a leash but needs more work on this too. Spock is still has a lot of good years to enjoy (estimated date of birth is 9/15/09). He is very smart and learns quickly. He would be a wonderful candidate for obedience training. Spock weighs about 50#. Spock has been neutered and has received all of his vaccinations including rabies. He is heartworm negative and has been started on heartworm preventative. For more information on Spock, please e-mail his foster mom Sharon at sharonmg68@yahoo.com

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.
