Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Mixed. Loki is a love of a dog and shows significant affection to those who care for him and those whom he trusts. He does get nervous around people he does not know (especially men) but, once he knows you, he will love you! Loki loves to play fetch, run around in the yard, and his favorite past time: Playing in the yard with the sprinkler and hose, which he'll often do for hours! (In winter, he loves the snow!) He would thrive in a home where he has a yard to play in and/or someone to play with him. He also loves and has thrived at doggie socials and doggie daycare, where he can stay active and play; he really enjoys playing with other dogs. Loki does enjoy being the center of a loving parent's world; he will shower you with kisses, put his toys in your lap to play, and fall asleep in your lap. Loki has successfully undergone 4+ months of obedience training, and his trainer has said that Loki's quick learning and understanding of commands is on-par with dogs that are trained to be service dogs. He is a very intelligent dog who thrives with structure, routine, and loves to be praised for doing well. Loki understands the commands: heel, sit, down, crate, bed, stay, leave it -- and when on a leash, he will look to his owner for a command before entering doorways or jumping into a car. He responds well to doggie cookies as a reward for doing a great job! At this point in Loki's training, he would benefit significantly from regular socialization with humans he does not know, and additional obedience training with 'distractions' (i.e., getting Loki to focus on the command vs. the thing that makes him anxious -- loud noises, strangers).

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.

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Poppy is incredibly sweet and loyal to a fault. She unconditionally loves those in her "family" and will allow them to do almost anything to her (including ear cleaning and teeth brushing!) without moving a muscle. She takes time to warm up to new humans and needs to acclimate at her own pace by sniffing and nose nudging with no fear of grabby hands or quick, unpredictable movements. The best way to gain her trust is to ignore her and allow her to come to you. Once she realizes you aren't a threat (and are made of treats) she will be well on her way to becoming your new best friend. Poppy is extremely smart and full of energy. She loves running circles in the yard and is learning how to be a great leashed running companion. She has no problem entertaining herself when the situation calls for it and will spend hours playing with her squeaky animals or throwing a tennis ball for herself to fetch. When not on the move, Poppy is a world class cuddler. She believes closer is better and will sleep on any part of your body you make available to her. She would do best in a quiet suburban setting with a couple or family with teenagers and a yard. She thrives on structure and rules which help maintain a routine that leaves no room for fear of the unknown. Poppy will do best in a one dog family. She needs slow intros to other dogs and should be limited to very small group interactions. She does great at quiet dog parks and has a walking buddy whom she adores. Poppy will love her new family with all her heart and give them all that she has. She is looking for a fabulous couple or family to love her right back and always make sure the house is stocked with tennis balls. Age: 2 years Weight: 30 lbs.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Skylark is an energetic girl. She loves playing fetch and hanging out with her people. She is a sweet pup with gorgeous eyes that will steal your heart.She's super smart and eager to learn and would love obedience training. She loves fetch and could play fetch for HOURS! She also loves toys and dolling out affection. She loves all people and being with them, she will follow you around the house. She has just come around to cuddling and makes a perfect snuggle bug. She loves other dogs and is eager to meet and play with dogs of all sizes but can be a bit timid of loud pups who get in her face. She would be great with another high energy pup as she is very playful and tends to play rough. She is very smart and has come a long way in just two short months and knows a number of commands. She is still on the younger side and loves to chew but she enjoys pup appropriate items like toys and bones. Skylark loves the outdoors but can be a bit nervous of street noise such as loud cars and traffic. She recently got to play in a fenced yard and was the happiest girl! She would love an adopter with a yard or one who could take her to the park or for walks to help her burn off her energy. Skylark is a complete love who has warmed the hearts of everyone she has met.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Boxer (short coat). Winston is very sweet, affectionate, and eager to please; he loves car rides. He is very athletic and would make an excellent running or cycling partner. He is smart and capable of laser-like focus. He is easily motivated to train with either food or toys. He knows sit, down, place, look, come, stand, out, leave it and heel. He loves to play tug and can play fetch for days. Winstonis an absolutely amazing dog but he will need a very special adopter. The ideal adopter will need to have experience with dogs. Winston requires constant structure and guidance to reap all he has to offer. Winston gets overstimulated when other dogs are around, so for that reason he should be the only pet in his FURever home.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi! I'm Beauty! Since I've spent a lot of time living outside, I am a little shy and nervous at first in new situations, but I am making rapid progress in my current foster home. Once I am comfortable, I am VERY loving and playful. I love to romp in the yard with my foster momma's other dogs, or just hang on the couch chewing on a bone or cuddling with my foster mom. I am still adjusting to those weird noises of the city and people, but I am slowly getting the hang of it! I would love a home with a family that can give me a few weeks to get comfortable and put some work in to building my confidence.

He sometimes has accidents but generally does well with potty training. He does not bark but will squeal when his person returns to the house. He is scared of most things.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Lilac is a very sweet girl! She loves to play with other dogs, and she's a great snuggler. Her favorite thing to do is run around the yard with her foster siblings, and then curl up on the couch afterwards. She can be a little bit shy and skittish at times, but once she knows you well, she's all in! Lilac loves kids, but a lower-key home with older kids or no kids would be best for her. She would love to have a doggie sibling to play with, since she does much better when there are other pups around! She's housebroken, crate trained, knows all her commands and walks great on a leash. If you're looking for the total package, you won't find a better pup that Little Miss Lilac!
