Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). 45lbs Pointer Mix, Spayed Female; Kids and Dogs OK Nikki - 3-4 year old lab/pointer mix. You meet this girl one time and you will be scratching your head trying to figure out why this happy dog does not have a forever home. Nikki has been passed around several times since 2012 because she is a little "hound-ini", as she seems to find an opening in every fence that has one. She's a friendly little girl and wanders around the neighborhood for a short time and goes back the same way she went out. She currently is fostered with 2 other females and a male. They all get along great. She watches the cats in the neighborhood, but other than that pays no attention. She loves everyone and is the happiest dog ever with a non-stop wagging tail. She is spayed, UTD on shots and ready to come home and cuddle up with you on your couch. She always greets you at the door with a toy. She loves her toys. If you are looking for a calm and loving girl to take a leisurely evening walk with, contact NAIAS PET RESCUE and fill out an app and let us know when you'd like to meet.

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.
