Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Buddy is so excited that he now has a chance to find a loving forever home! He was found stray in the country where he was likely dumped by his former owner. Despite this sad start, Buddy LOVES people and wants nothing more than to have a family to call his own. Buddy loves to play fetch, enjoys going to the dog park but spends his time visiting all the people rather than playing with the other dogs. He has a deep desire to please his human companion and he has the brains to figure out what it is we want. You should see how he zooms around in a fit of joy when he receives praise! When it comes to earning a cookie, you've never seen a dog sit so straight and calm. All Buddy needs is a consistent family that will give him lots of love and praise as he blossoms. Boy does he love LOVE! Are you going to be the lucky one to be adopted by this sweetheart?

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: Italian Greyhound
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Italian Greyhound (short coat). Mason is a super sweet three year old puppy mill survivor who is looking for a fun and loving permanent family to make his own. Once he builds some more confidence and is socialized more to the new world around him, he could even become a good obedience or agility dog. Potty training is a work in progress but he is a people pleaser and should do well in that area with a patient family. He would love another dog to learn from and be pals with. If you have what he needs, please complete an application. The right family will be repaid with a lifetime of wags and cuddles from a very grateful fellow.
