More About Pekingese Breed
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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Mooresville, NC
      Posted Breed: Chinese Crested-Powder Puff. UPDATE 3/6/17: Petey has come light years since he was pulled from the shelter and we would love to see him go to a forever home where he can get all the attention! Petey is walking around great now (he has never even used his wheelchair at all) and takes his daily meds which help him tremendously. He loves life and says he is not going any where anytime soon! Please consider adopting this super sweet guy so he can retire in the lap of luxury! Hi! I am Petey! I am an 8 yr old Chinese Crested Powder Puff with rheumatoid arthritis. I was picked up as a stray by our local animal control, I was microchipped but my owners did not want to come and take me back home. My foster mom has Chinese Cresteds and when she saw me at the shelter she just had to rescue me. While at the shelter I couldn't walk and they were not sure if I was injured or had arthritis. My foster mom took me to vet, they did x-rays and found out I have rheumatoid arthritis in all my bones and joints. It is very painful just like in people but I don't let it get me down at all!! The vet was so surprised what a trooper I was because I do not even act like it hurts, that is because I love life and I am not going to let anything get me down! I am now on medications for pain control, and meds to help keep my RA at bay and am doing great. I even walk around and try to follow my foster dad everywhere. My foster mom decided it would help me out a ton in I had a wheelchair since I just want to go go go, so she says I will be running around like hell on wheels very soon. If you would like to sponsor me or donate to my continued care that would be awesome and we would be forever grateful! For more information and to submit an application, got to www.arrfnc.com.

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Mooresville, NC
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. I was found hog tied with barbed wire and left for dead ! My name is Jerechco, I am very sweet and loveable. I have been in rescue for a very long time. I am the Ambassador here. I help all of the new dogs that come into the program. They come in scared and I show them the ropes. I myself was a very abused doggie. I was found by the President of the rescue hog tied with barbed wire and left in a yard for dead. I had to have the barbed wire surgically removed from my legs. I have been with the rescue ever since. i actually love it here. I would love to be able to find a home but the problem is I get soooo scared when I meet new people because I am not sure if someone is going to hurt me again. It takes me about a day or two to get my confidence and realize that not everyone in this world is here to hurt me, but unfortunately no one ever wants to be patient enough and wait out the couple of days to let me get comfortable and wait for my personality to come out. Everyone wants that happy bouncy new dog that they can love on and play with right away, I can be that dog it just takes me a little bit longer and someone just has to be very patient and understanding. Until that right person comes along, I am happy as a clam living here. I am house broken and crate trained up to date on shots, heartworm negative and on all necessary preventatives, and neutered. i know one day the right person will come along for me but until then I help all the newbies get settled in and teach them all the ropes, My Job, perhaps why I was rescued, it was what I was meant to do ! ****Jerechco is a very special guy, because of the abuse he suffered, Jerry will never trust a man, because of this, he can ONLY be adopted to a single female or female couple.***** For more information and to submit an application, got to www.arrfnc.com.
