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
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I am called Liddy, which rhymes with pretty...is it any wonder, as I am so pretty! I am almost 2 years old and will wiggle my behind for treats or pets. I know sit on command and I take my treats so gently. I was found as a stray but would prefer to leave that part of my life behind and start a new life with you. I am only 44 pounds so, the perfect medium sized dog.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Maya is a real gem! She has a beautiful smile, and a personality to match! She loves to grin so much we think she could star in a toothpaste commercial. Maya is 3 years old, and has spent the last 3 years decided that not all treats are created equal. She does not like anything basic. Maya is looking for the right family to spoil her and give her a "gourmet" lifestyle.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Look deep in to my big brown eyes. I want to be your dog. I don't want to share you with a cat or another dog. My mission in life is to love you, not to share you! I will be happy to help you with chores around the house, watch tv, or settle in to read a good book. I am going to be blunt here, the "pet" part of your life has to be all about me! No Exceptions! Don't I sound perfect? If you want someone to give you their undivided attention, I am the gal for you.
