Posted Breed: Retriever / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Poor Charlie was a skinny stray living in the woods when rescued - no food, no water and afraid of people. Fortunately a kind person coaxed him into their vehicle and his life changed forever. When rescued Charlie was a thin 49 lbs, but now weighs a healthy 63 lbs. A very loving and playful dog, Charlie is an eager student and is learning basic obedience skills. Charlie gets along well with our other foster dogs, plays appropriately and isn't a dominant type dog. He's rather big and bouncy and might be too much for very small children, but will make a wonderful family dog. We want Charlie to have a very happy ending - are you the perfect family for him?

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.

      Roxey

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Monroe, GA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Roxey is a sweet girl, about 2 - 3 years old. She was surrendered by an owner who had too many dogs and was forced by a local Animal Control to relinquish some of them. In many ways Roxey has a typical Chihuahua personality - very loving, but cautious around strangers at first. She was nervous in her foster home for a few days but soon resumed her sweetheart ways, so we expect her to be the same with her adopters. She's a very devoted girl once she gets to know you. When she came to us Roxey had a funny walk on her rear legs. Our vet diagnosed luxating patellas in both knees - the knees slip out of place when she walked. She got by fine but we knew without surgery she'd develop painful arthritis in the years ahead. Roxey underwent orthopedic surgery on one knee in September and recovered quickly and spectacularly. Her second surgery will take place soon. The vet expects her to recover just as well the second time. She'll have no restrictions, but will walk and run as normally as any other dog. We know there's a special home full of love for Roxey - this sweet girl deserves the best!

      Breed: Borador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Monroe, GA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). This happy girl is Sadie. She's a great medium sized sweetheart, about 40 lbs. Sadie is active but not hyper, enjoys being around people and is very eager to please. She's playful with other dogs, a little too enthusiastic around cats and other small furry critters, so a no-cat household would be best for her. Sadie is such a sweet, loving dog and will be a very devoted pet to her new owners.

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Pointer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Monroe, GA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). Roxie was rescued from the shelter along with her 6 puppies. All her babies found great homes and now it's Roxie's turn. She's a great girl, very friendly and affectionate. She gets along great with other dogs and loves to play. Roxie is a great companion and has picked up obedience lessons very quickly. She has cute little nub ears - maybe there's some Sharpei in her history? Who knows for sure, but we've grown very attached to Roxie. Meet her and you'll see what makes her so special! At about 4 years old, Roxie is a mature dog: playful but not silly, active but not hyper, loves to be around people but not clingy. She enjoys squirrel chasing and would probably do the same with cats, so a feline-free home would be best. This girl is housebroken, cratetrained, weighs about 55 lbs., is affectionate and rides quietly in a car. Roxie will make someone an AWESOME pet!
