Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed. Yakko is a gorgeous lab mix willing to learn so he needs someone who is going to work on training with him. He likes the ladies (canine and people) and likes to play with toys. He is leash trained and knows how to sit and shake......sometimes he can be a little stubborn with shake. He really likes long walks in the woods. He's a very goofy and energetic dog. He loves his chewy bones or any chewy toy.

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.

      Lilly

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eureka Springs, AR
      Posted Breed: Terrier. Lilly is a very sweet girl. She is curious and wants to know what you are saying. She was found with paint ball paint on her, so she may have been used as target practice. She would make a great couch potato as she loves to lay down and tends to be a little lazy. She loves her bath and playing in water. She is learning to sit and walk on a leash. She still pulls a little. So far she hasn't liked any of the dogs we've introduced her to. A single pet household would be best.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eureka Springs, AR
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Fox Terrier / Mixed. Toby is a handsome guy who is very sweet. He is energetic and likes to walk and run. He cannot be in a home with other dogs, and would not be suitable around cats or chickens but would more than likely love your area rug and belly rubs. Toby does not like to be restrained or grabbed around his neck area, but does not mind this area petted. He also will accept a leash, but should have a harness instead of a collar. He will love you and give kisses if you abide!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Eureka Springs, AR
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Ralph likes to play but can also be very calm. He was hit by a car and as a result had to have one of his back legs amputated. Having only three legs doesn't slow him down any. Ralph gets along with most dogs and does well with kids. He has a unique submissive smile. He likes treats and loves to chew on his bone. He's the most lovable dog ever and is looking for a new mommy or daddy to spoil him rotten.

      Apache

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eureka Springs, AR
      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Apache is a very energetic dog, so he would be the perfect companion for someone with an active lifestyle. He thrives most when he is being challenged, ie. receiving training and being asked to perform. He's very smart and is currently being trained, videos and photos can be checked out on our FB Page. He is better as a single dog, however, the behavior in a shelter is much different than that of when they go home. We would suggest a meet and greet with any potential adopter that has a dog. Come check him out! You will not be disappointed, his fun demeanor is contagious!
