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: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Max is a laid back 7 year old Jack Russell Terrier looking to find his new forever home. Max came into the shelter when his owner lost their home and they were no longer able to care for him. Max is house trained, crate trained, knows many commands and walks great on a leash. Max has been a little reactive with dogs here at the shelter, so we would suggest a dog test with any dogs already in the home, or a home with no other animals. Max would make a great lap dog! Stop by the shelter to visit with him today!

      Frankie ~ Co...

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Front Royal, VA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Frankie is a mixed breed Australian Cattle dog. He is about 8 years old which makes him a senior. He has been with my family since Thanksgiving 2015. He is about 50 lbs and medium height, short haired, mostly dark gray with some white fur. He has one brown eye and one light eye. He is up to date on his shots. Frankie's good qualities include his loyalty to his family. He is house trained, having rare accidents in the house. His favorite activty is taking his owner for a walk. He is on a food schedule and bathroom break schedule. He enjoys lounging around the house and being petted and brushed. We have four cats to which he pays no mind at all. He is trained to, Sit!" for treats, give paw for treats and bark at the door should he need to go out. He has not shown aggression towards people using the usual smell the hand first and calming tones used when speaking to him. Frankie responds to commands such as, sit, stay, come on boy (when taking walks) no, stop and go lay down. The last command works well when he is getting under foot. Commanding him to, "sit!" before discipline also works well. The behaviors Frankie needs work on are his aggression towards other dogs. This is partially territorial as he becomes agitated when another dog passes by our house or when Frankie is in the yard and another dog is spotted. He also is hit or miss in behavior around other dogs when going for a walk. He is prone to fight with other dogs should they approach him during a walk. He also has slight food aggression. He once was chewing on a toilet paper roll and when I tried to retrieve it from the floor in front of him he snapped at me. Another area of concern is his aggression towards unpredictable movements from children. While he gets along well with my twelve year old daughter he has often reacted badly to the quick movements of my eight year old son. Specifically when Frankie is laying at the bottom of the stairs and my son has tried to jump over him or run past him. Frankie is also sensative to people touching his neck area, specifically his collar. We believe his previous owners were abusive and used a shock collar for discpline. Once Frankie trusts us he allowed us to place a leash on his collar and pet him on neck as well as change his old collar to a new one and adjust the size of his collar. We believe Frankie would make an excellent companion and pet to a home without small children or other dogs. Overall he is a good dog who just needs a chance to make himself a companion.
