Posted Breed: Shepherd / Pointer / Mixed. Personality I am a sweet shy boy who loves to be with other dogs. I play well with others. I am shy when I meet new people, but once I am comfortable with you I am very affectionate. When I warm up, I love to snuggle and be petted by you. I love hanging with my humans when I am not playing hard with my dog playmates. Loud voices scare me so I would prefer a quiet household. Socialization Does the dog like other pets? I love to play with other dogs. I am crate and dog door trained. I love to ride in the car. I love to play and wrestle with the other dogs in the house. Does the dog like children? Since loud noises scare me I would do better without children. My foster family doesn’t have any children, so I'm not used to the little ones. General Socialization Notes I would love a quiet home with someone who loves to cuddle. My foster home doesn't have any cats, so I don't know how I would handle them. Favorite Toys I play enthusiastically with my dog friends, love to chew on my bones, but I do need to work on my resource guarding. I love to rest my on dog bed or be near my humans! Forever Home I would do best in a home with a canine playmate to keep me company and be my best friend. I love to play, but I do know how to be quiet when I am in the house. I love to work for treats and am looking forward to training with my new family. I am looking to find my forever home, so please call to meet me soon.

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 Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Rosie - FOSTER HOME NEEDED! Full of life and full of love!! I am a huge love bug who loves to cuddle up or play! I have lots of energy and like to run around or toss around my toys. I'm learning how to fetch and love going for walks or running around the back yard. I also LOVE big hugs and attention! I would love to have a family to call my own! BREED: American Pitbull Terrier mix COLOR: Tan and White GENDER: Spayed Female BIRTHDATE: November 2013 WEIGHT: 70 pounds GENERAL SOCIALIZATION NOTES: I am definitely not shy at all! I am great with all adults and kids! I love humans! I just need some work on learning how to play with other dogs without upsetting them or them upsetting me. I want to play with them so bad though! If I am in a home with other dogs, it's best to keep me separated from them until I can learn how to play with them better. I do great when I go to Wag n Wash and other pet stores with other dogs near me. I just need help learning how to act with them off the leash. I am also crate trained, but haven't had the opportunity to roam freely in a home to see if I'm house trained yet. DOES THE DOG LIKE OTHER PETS: I like other dogs but have a hard time playing with them and being too rough. My current foster family doesn't think I was ever exposed to other dogs before, so I'm still learning how to behave with other animals so I don't upset them. I'm best on a leash when around other dogs. I also love to chase kitties, so living with them probably wouldn't be the best idea. My most ideal home would be me as the only family pet so I can get all the love and attention for myself! DOES THE DOG LIKE CHILDREN? I love children of all ages! I like to play soccer with my current foster family's ten year old son and also run around the track with him! I'm a people dog, that's for sure! Just keep an eye on the little ones though because I can be a little clumsy and booty bump them! FAVORITE TOYS: I love stuffed toys so I can remove all the stuffing! I also like to chase after balls and sticks in the yard! FOREVER HOME: I am so full of love and I'm looking for a home that will give me lots of love back. I like to live indoors where it's warm since I don't have thick fur. I have lots of energy so I need a home that helps me get plenty of exercise. I, also, need a family who's willing to be patient with me so I can learn how to play with other dogs better and who can help me learn good manners like not jumping up on people. It would be best for me to be the only dog in the house but if anything, the home definitely needs to be a cat free zone. Just look at my face and big ears!! Don't you want to give me a loving home today?

      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Ivy Enjoying Life! I had a bit of a rough start to life but I'm beginning to understand that it can be really good. I love going for runs and walks and get really excited!! I am an excellent snuggler and love being close to my people. BREED: American Pitbull Terrier mix COLOR: Brindle GENDER: Spayed Female BIRTHDATE: October 2013 WEIGHT: 40 pounds ​GENERAL SOCIALIZATION: I'm housebroken and can use a doggie door. I had really bad anxiety when left alone when I first came out of the shelter but it's much better now! I don't do kennels or crates, they send me into a panic so if you plan to kennel me, we would need to work on that. I am allowed to run free in the house all day with my foster brother and sister and haven't had any problems. I will whine for a moment when you leave but then will settle in with the other pups. DOES THE DOG LIKE OTHER PETS? I, actually, love other dogs and need a doggie buddy as I hate being alone! DOES THE DOG LIKE CHILDREN? I would do best with kids 10 or older as I am still a little mouthy when I play. With the help of my foster dad, I have made huge improvements though. ​FOREVER HOME: I am so excited to find my new home. I am an active and energetic, young girl so I would do best in a home that will make sure that I get the exercise I need. I am a very social girl so another dog would be great. Did I mention that I love to cuddle?

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Colorado Springs, CO
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed. Personality I am a vibrant, sweet, and inquisitive puppy that is extremely food motivated. I am especially fond of long walks in the neighborhood and I have the potential to be a great running partner, as I love to romp in the backyard! I’m a curious lover boy who has so much affection to give! Socialization Does the dog like other pets? I love to play with my foster brother. My foster brother is slightly smaller, very chill, and has the manners to tell me when to back off when I get super excited and too eager to play. He is a good example of a possible permanent companion for me. I have not had socialization with other dogs outside of my foster brother but I would probably be fine with calm, appropriate dogs. Does the dog like children? My foster family doesn’t have children; however I may be fine with older children that are respectful of my space and the need for me to warm to people at my own pace. General Socialization Notes I had a hard, early life and have begun to adjust and accept new people into my life through my foster humans. I will do best in a home without men. I am working on learning to trust males and other strangers. Although I can be scared and overwhelmed by loud noises, I am very trainable and take re-direction well. I am potty trained and have been working on my sitting and crating skills. I recently lost my left eye and am still getting used to seeing without it. Favorite Toys I need strong, durable chew toys like antlers or bones that will keep me busy for a few hours at a time. I also enjoy hard plastic food puzzle toys that require me to work to find the food and tug toys that I can play with and work on pulling apart. Forever Home Although I love to cuddle, I am not a couch potato and would therefore do best with a more active family who has some yard to play in. I would prefer a home where my forever human(s) could provide me with a great deal of stability and help me work on my anxiety and trust issues with other humans. An understanding family who could be patient with me when I get scared would be simply amazing!

I am looking for a home that would be willing to come and walk with me and get to know me a little better before I come to their house. Once I warm up to you, you are golden!
