Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Amber Atkins is a young Shepherd mix that got dumped on one of our adopters' property in the country. While Amber is very shy at first, she very quickly comes out of her shell and she is super playful with the other dogs in the house. She is curious about the cat but loses interest when the cat ignores her. She loves to play outside and go on walks in the evening.

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: Mutt

      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed. Hi my name is Winslow otherwise known as “ Winnie”. My foster moms gave me that name cause I was found wandering off I-30 and Winslow Road in Dallas. I’m not sure what breed I am to be exact, but I am pretty sure I am an Australian Cattle dog Mix, I do know I’m as cute as a button. I love to cuddle. So far being inside a home is really nice and warm for the cooler weather. I love to play by myself, I love laser pointers, and I love chewing on bones. I feel safe inside, but I love being outdoors, it’s all I’ve known my whole life. I am around 1-2 years old and I weigh about 39 pounds. When my foster moms found me I was malnourished, but with a healthy diet and good food I’m putting on the pounds. It seems that I might have been hit by a car at some point as I have a crushed pelvis, which Is requiring me to undergo two hip surgeries. I already got one hip surgery done. Just one more to go! I am heartworm positive, but have no fear with the proper care and medications, that will be gone soon for good!

      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Nigel goes up to 11! In terms of happiness, that is! He’s a young dog who has a sweet disposition, he loves nothing more than hanging out with his people and most other dogs. He loves to have to have fun - whether it’s playing in the yard or snuggling on the couch. When it comes to settling down, Nigel can snuggle up to you like a bump on a log. Because he’s a young lad, he still needs to learn a few etiquette lessons when it comes to jumping up and limiting the number of kisses he wants to give. He’s a fast learner though and eager to please. He’s got a broad head, beautiful tiger-striped splotches, rose ears and he’s always smiling. Nigel is two years old, house trained, crate trained, up to date on all of his shots, and a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys (or possibly sofa time). He can be bouncy, so might be best in a home with older children but would make a cheerful, loyal addition to any household.

Her ears fold over when she is alert, but don't stay that way all the time. We think she's adorable

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Pointer / Mixed. Chewy was found on the streets by one of our friends. She patiently tried catching him for many days until finally, success! Chewy was all skin and bones, hungry and showed signs of having been in some scuffles. ART took him in and over the next few months, first worked on putting some weight on him. He is now at a healthy weight of almost 30lbs, neutered, microchipped and upto date on all his shots. He is friendly and loves his people and furry siblings alike. While he is generally gentle, he does like to use his paws to get attention and so we think homes with children 10 and over will be better. He is crate-trained but we are still working on obedience. He knows when he is told to stop doing something that he is, we are still working on basic commands. He is friendly around new people and learning to trust. At first, while he liked to be petted, he was suspicious if you got your face close to him for kisses. He has since learned that it is awesome to be loved on and cuddle and allows you to give him kisses as long as its not a sudden move. He loves to play and run in the yard, but just as happy being a couch potato. He loves going on walks and is just a happy sweet boy. The little guy seems to have been through a bit of a rough time on the streets, and we are glad he is much healthier and happier now. All he needs now is a loving new family that will love him, care for him and spoil him rotten!

      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Meet Cinderella, the squirrel chaser! Like her namesake, little Cinderella has had a hard life with no one to really care for her. She was found as a stray, with a terrible infection in her teeth. Unfortunately, the vet has had to pull all but six of her teeth to get the infection resolved. The fangs she has left are on display at all times! She has the most unique look. She is healthy now and is eating well. She is playful with the other small dogs in her foster home. She is very sweet and loving and is a lap dog when not on squirrel patrol. When it is time to relax in the evening, she loves to hang out with you and watch TV. 'Ella is looking for a home that will treat her as the princess she was meant to be.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Who wouldn't fall in love with those big brown eyes? If you're looking for a Chihuahua with personality plus, then meet Gigi! This funny little girl is crate trained, potty trained, and even uses a doggie door! Don't let her coloring fool you, she's only about 5 years old. She is leash trained and loves to go for walks and smell everything. Gigi has even graduated Nose Work training and loves this activity. She is good with small dogs, but is intimidated by large dogs. Gigi is a little too curious about cats and likes to follow them everywhere. Resident cats that are used to dogs should have no problem with Gigi. She would do best in a home with no small children because she guards her toys and treats intensely. You know the old saying, if it's on the floor, it's mine! Let us know if you would like to meet her!

      Remi

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). A former adopter contacted one of our volunteers to say they witnessed a dog being hit by a car during a thunderstorm. Volunteers went out and found Remi under a bush in a great deal of pain. Hoping the dog was chipped and an owner looking for her, ART transported her to the emergency vet and tried without success to find her people. No one came forward so ART located a foster home and began to address her medical needs. She had a dislocated elbow on her right front leg and a dislocated hip on her back left leg. She had undergone two surgeries and some extensive physical therapy and is now looking for her forever home. She is great with other dogs and women but is a little uncertain of men and she will need a little time to warm up. Remi is a very sweet and loyal dog and would make a great companion for a patient and calm household.
