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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. We're learning about Stitch...and so far we can tell you he loves to lick and snuggle his people. He is agile and quick, and has hops, so a six-foot fence is recommended. He has learned that kitties are not (tasty or compliant) chew toys... no cats. He was incredibly friendly and easygoing at PSP this past weeked! He is learning basic manners like sit, stay, and off... he sometimes gets so excited he could knock someone over! But, his foster momma is already working on it! His neuter surgery and a dental procedure are included in his adoption fee!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed. From his foster: "Pawlie LOVES attention and is especially cuddly at night. He's a velcro dog that likes to be wherever I am. He does not have a discerning palette - he'll eat anything." He's a great guard dog and will bark to get your attention. Pawlie is good with most other dogs, but I've noticed him being selective. He is very agile - I've seen him leap over a large crate, and he's managed to climb on top of garbage cans (and almost over a fence!) He is crate trained and housebroken. I have not seen him get car sick. He does not fight a bath, but we haven't tried nail trims yet. He's very interested in the cat, but has not broken into the laundry room even though he easily could. He knows his name, but he also thinks his name is Dobby, Sabrina, and Solace - whenever I call one of them, speak to one of them, or try to spend time with one of them he'll come running and push them aside for some attention. Pawlie is a counter surfer. He's very strong and gets really excited when you start playing with him, so maybe no small kids. He's ok in the crate, but will whine if he thinks he's missing out. Pawlie has eaten slippers, insoles out of shoes, pulled up strands of carpet, and knocked loose a few boards in my fence - he has the potential to be destructive, so he needs A LOt of exercise and attention. Pawlie has already been fixed. Our trainer recommends a six-foot fence - since he's shown above average agility and drive. He does not do as well with strangers (because of his protective nature) or intact males. He would need proper introductions and time to acclimate. In addition, his fur-ever human will need to continue to discourage negative behaviors like chewing on inappropriate objects and counter surfing.
