Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hugo is a sweet lab mix boy that is about 10-11 months old. He is good woth dogs, cats and kids. Hugo has specific requirements : adopters must have another dog as he takes his cues from and confidence from other dogs. He also must have a 6 foot fence (not chain link as he can climb it). It would be great if Hugo went to a home where someone was home most of the time, but not a requirement. He is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations and ready to go to his furever home!

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: Great Dane
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Great Dane (short coat). Maya is a sweet female Dane about 3 years old. She has had her tail docked due to a case of "happy tail" that required amputation. She's great with kids and cat friendly. Maya walks great on a lead, however, she does not like other dogs so she will charge them (typically smaller dogs). We have been working with a trainer on behavior modification, and her new family will need to continue our work. Maya's ideal home is one where the family is large breed savvy. You should have a fenced yard and Maya should be the only dog, although we will consider a meet and greet with another giant breed dog that is not dominant.

      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso. Stella was one of the pooches we sprung from the Virginia Beach Animal Control over the weekend. Her hair was matted, so she was shaved. Don't worry, her hair will grow back! Her foster doesn't think she would do well with very young children - she is a bit nervous and very skinny, having been on her own for a while. She is reported to have a good temper and good health. Stella is 7 years young! "She loves to be loved and fell asleep in my 16 year old's lap. She couldn't believe her luck when I gave her cheese... she is very appreciative of food and love." Although we don't have any information about how she is with other pets, the way she craves attention and closeness, she may be better as an only fur-friend for a quiet couple who stays close to home to enjoy the rest of her days.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). “Actually, I’ve been on hold for a while, because I was extremely underweight and ill. My foster mom has poured her heart (and lots of treats and food) into me, and now I’m a healthy 25 pounds! Check out my sleek physique! A handsome 1 year old black lab mix, I was terrified of everyone (and everything) when I arrived. Luckily, I have a super patient foster mom who has helped me overcome some of my STAGEfright (get it?). I’ve spent time at other fosters’ homes with other doggies and other kitties. I even (almost) enjoyed a car ride! I met two new people just today and was able to snuggle! I’m telling you, these ‘hoomans’ have made a new man… er… dog out of me!” Stage is still nervous around new people and situations, and he will require patience from his adopters to continue to help him build confidence. He would likely do well having another dog in the home with him. Stage's initial vet visit resulted in a positive heartworm test. He is undergoing treatment and will be neutered once he tests negative. The treatment and neuter are included in his adoption fee. Stage is also diagnosed with diabetes insipidus (DI) - an incurable condition that causes intense thirst/urine output. He is medicated for it and it does not require any special diet. A doggie door may be helpful, but he's housetrained, if not. The medication runs about $30/month.

      Breed: Anatolian Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd. Aslan is a sweet, friendly Anatolian Shepherd, recovering from a life on the street and near starvation. We are unable to determine his exact age, but his teeth suggest he is over 5 years old. He is wonderful around children and other large dogs. He does not play well with a smaller male dog in his foster pack, but that may be an issue that's resolved after he is fixed. He does not do well with cats. He adores his foster daddy and is crate trained. He does not do well on car rides. Aslan's neuter surgery is covered by the adoption fee and is expected to take place within the month, once his weight exceeds 75 pounds.
