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: American Bandogge
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Virgnia Beach, VA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / English Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Bravo is an incredibly handsome one-year old Mastiff mix, probably with Olde English Bulldogge. He is full of bounce and has no idea that he's 65 pounds! Bravo needs a strong leader in his life to guide him in the right direction. Someone that has experience with his breed is preferred. Bravo is good with dogs on a case by case basis. His current foster home has three dogs. He has a very high prey drive so absolutely no cats or small animals should share a home with him. Besides, there isn't much room left over on the couch once he's up there! He loves to snuggle, but needs an active household - he needs to be exercised and worked...or he gets "bored." Bored dogs, like bored children, find creative, often inappropriate entertainment. Bravo has worked one-on-one and in groups with a professional trainer on a variety of topics, including reactivity/redirection and pack walks. With a firm handler, he has impeccable leash manners and does very well with redirection. He is crate trained and house trained. Continued work with a trainer and use of his crate as a safe space is important. He will not be permitted to go to a home with children under 8, primarily because of his size and young children's tendency to be excitable and unaware of his spacial boundaries.

      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! Last week, I was out at MJ's with all the fosters...I heard the jello-shots were great, but I didn't partake” 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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer. Pawlie, as his foster momma calls him, is a sweet pibble boxer mix. We don't know much about him except he is energetic and plays with his foster sister, and has a sneaky side, as he "broke into" a food bucket and helped himself (to the tune of several pounds of dog food)...but he does need a few more pounds!
