Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Buddy is not at the shelter but is listed as a courtesy to the owner who is trying to rehome him. Please contact Heather for more information: heatherspeterson31@gmail.com. Buddy is approximately 10 years old. He is a black lab/shepherd mix. He absolutely loves attention and playing fetch with the tennis ball. He is great off leash and an awesome buddy guard. He would be best as the only kid to spoil. He's a big lap dog and loves treats. He will be loyal to a fault. He really needs to have a place to run around in.

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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. I'm Mercedes and I confess: I have no use for cats and dogs. I focus only on humans (maybe you?). I'm a 10-year old spayed girl pit bull terrier mix. My owner had to move, so here I am, waiting. While I wait, I keep the toys and tennis balls here busy. Girl's gotta play! So, I'd love it if you could visit and we could play together. Do you like to chase tennis balls too?

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Finn is a sweet, loving boy who will stay by your side once he has complete trust in you. He's about 5 years old, very well mannered, and overall a calm sweet dog. He knows sit and paw but will only do them for a special reward. He loves to play with stuffed toys and tennis balls. Finn is house trained, neutered, and walks wonderfully on a leash. Finn is great when getting a bath and tolerates getting his nails trimmed. He loves cheeseburgers and is an oversized lap dog who just wants to snuggle. Finn likes everyone at the shelter but is very shy around new people. He can be protective of people he knows and is very loyal. Finn really needs someone dedicated to giving him a chance so he can learn to trust people. He would do best in a quiet home without young children or constant excitement. He would also prefer to be an only pet. He just doesn't want to share his people! Stop by the shelter and visit with Finn today! He is currently housed in one of our back kennels where it's quieter, so please see the front desk if you'd like to meet him.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. I'm Curtis, a 70-pound bundle of love toward humankind. I'm a 6 year old (mature!) boy pit bull terrier mix. Please don't hate me, but I don't like other dogs, am not into children, and cats, well, eh. But! I love to play and I know basic commands. I'm super loving -- do you think you could love me back?
