Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). *SPECIAL NEEDS DOG* Mona is 5 yrs old and is one of the sweetest girls you will ever met. This petite girl is such a doll. She is crate trained, potty trained and has learned how to sit on command for treats. She walks well on the leash and is very food and treat motivated. She just wants to please. She also did really well in her crate while the fireworks went off all around the house last week. She didn't make a sound. She has spent time with her skin brother wh is 4 year old but during that time she has only wanted to give him kisses and love. She is the friendliest girl and just wants to meet people and make friends. She loves car rides and even enjoys going to the vets office. Mona is good with other dogs with proper introductions. She loves her new best dog friend Buckley and enjoys leash walks and hanging out with him. Her foster mom says Mona is a superstar who deserves a great home. She does not enjoy the company of cats.

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: Rhodesian Ridgeback-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Are you a special person? I am Kennedy, a special needs pup and I am about 3 years young. I was on the list to be euthanized at a high kill shelter, but was saved by Paw Print Hearts! Right now I live in a boarding facility and I wish every day for a forever home or at least a foster home. They say I am sweet, but I have kennel stress and resource guarding. I do have nice volunteers that take me to training/enrichment sessions, but I really need my own special someone to work with me everyday. I have to admit that I need a special human to take me in. You need to be a patient, strong leader so you can give me structure. All I ask for is a quiet environment with no children or other animals around. Just me and special humans. My adoption fee is only $150 and you can contact the nice people at ourpawprinthearts@gmail.com to fill out an application and then meet me to see for yourself how sweet I am.

      Breed: Carolina Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Carolina Dog / Hound / Mixed (long coat). Introducing the lovely, Princess Elsa. She is a 2 yr old carolina/hound mix and weighs about 40 lbs. She's a young, playful but dominant dog who would love a dog playmate. Elsa would definitely want to be the boss. Seems to like kids of all ages and women, sometimes seems startled by men. HATES bikes and skateboards, but can probably get past that. Does well with most dogs after proper introductions. Is not kennel, food or toy aggressive (no space or resource guarding seen at all!) Energetic, so will need lots of exercise every day, either a fenced yard or a running partner. Loves to play fetch outside and with toys inside. Tries to engage other suitable dogs in playtime.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Hi my name is Bella Donna... Bella for short. I am about 2yrs old and weigh about 47lbs. I am on the shorter side, but I am strong. I love to chase the ball and frisbee, but once I have it I will not give it back....after all I was the one that ran to get it. I have been in boarding for a long time, I would love to have my own confy bed and a family to call my own. Everyone says how beautiful I am and that I have a beautiful coat and eyes. I am also friendly with people, I do like some other dogs, but I prefer to have all your attention to myself. I will probably learn to like another fur sibling, but you would have to introduce me slowly, as when I was younger another dog attacked me when I was just walking by him. I would love to go on long walks and runs car rides are fun too!

      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Bingo! You found me! I am often told how adorable I am. I am two years old and I am proud to be a bulldog/hound mix. Some humans were kind enough to rescue me from a high kill shelter and I am so happy about that, but I really would like a forever home now. I want a home to call my own! I must tell you that I have a lot of energy so I am looking for some humans that have a strong leader who will make sure I get enough exercise, structure and training. I am a very loyal fur kid and once I trust you, I will love you and protect you forever! I do not like cats and I am a little picky about other dogs. If you let me meet your other fur kid first, I will let you know if I like them. Also, it would be nice if you had no human kids, but if they are older and considerate, I maybe could handle that. What are you waiting for? Just yell “Bingo” and we can meet! My adoption fee is $150. To have a meet and greet with me, please complete an application on our website: www.pawprinthearts.com

      rescue
      Breed: Rat-Cha
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Tampa, FL
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). *Courtesy Post Petey and his brother Peppy are 11 month old rat terrier/chi pups looking for a new home. Petey is a little more shy while Peppy is more well adjusted. Petey does do much better with his brother around for security. They are otherwise happy little puppies who love to play chase with each other and wrestle. They provide each other entertainment and will for their new person as well. They love their crates and are crate trained. They have lived with other dogs and cats, but have not had a lot of exposure to children. They would do best in a quieter house. Petey has the cutest wiggle butt. He gets so wiggly that he almost bends himself in half and hits his own face with his tail. It’s adorable! They have puppy playfulness but they are not hyper dogs at all. They love to lay around and chew on bones or just cuddle on the couch. They both love to sleep under the covers. They know some obedience and do well with sit. They are both very obedient when given direction or told “no”. They walk ok on a leash but they are a little scared of new things so they need patience and more training on that. Please contact ourpawprinthearts@gmail.com to inquire (put their names in subject line please).
