Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Hi I am nice with other dogs, please give me a chance.

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.

    • Mutt Dog For Adoption in San Diego, CA

      Lola

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: San Diego, CA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Schnauzer (short coat). Lola is an extremely lovable little girl. She weighs about 22lbs, I had her down to 19lbs but a slight increase was recommended by the vet. She is spayed, UTD on shots, and has a microchip. She is great with cats, actually pays no attention to them at at (at least mine). She has been around tons of dogs and i would say that she is accepting of any animal that her pac leaders allow into the pac, however she does try to display dominance over other dogs and will want to naturally determine where she lies in the hierarchy of the pac. I would say that her ideal home would be with a family that can give her lots of attention, and thus would probably prefer fewer other dogs or to even be alone where she can have all the attention to herself. She is good with other dogs though, but she is not submissive to other dogs and would not do well with a dominant dog. Larger dogs and older dogs are probably better for her to be around than smaller dogs and puppies. She does not like to be alone and can be vocal and even a little anxious when alone. Being around other dogs doesnt ameliorate this anxiety, only people. She loves to be with her people, meaning that she is the happiest when she is around her family doing anything and everything. She is a lap dog and loves to be in physical contact with her family. She likes to sleep cuddled up in your arms or legs. I would say that she is crate trained, although I believe she would much rather prefer to sleep in a nice dog bed or on the bed with her family She was potty trained very well and will wake you up or let you know by scratching a door or something if she needs to go potty. Her stools are always firm. She does not mark, or displays possessiveness of things. She loves to go on walks and loves to run. She gets extremely excited for walks etc, but she would be great for hiking and any outdoor activities where dogs can be included. She does bark at other dogs on walks, but if she is focused on her walk and her leader then she will be ok. Her energy level leads her to pull while walking, so i would not recommend a common harness. I actually walk her on a face lead which I will provide to new home upon adoption. This has proven to work very well with her for understanding commands while walking. She is very high energy, and needs to be with a family that is active and is willing to make sure she is getting her exercise. She would not do well in a family without proper exercise, as her energy level will build up and she would probably become very vocal. She does not chew on toys or pretty much anything at all unless given a bone or treat for chewing. Im not sure why, but she doesnt seem to know how to play with other dogs, meaning that she doesnt understand how to play. I think that she may have been isolated a lot in a prior home which is why she never learned how to play and why she gets anxious and vocal when alone. She does listen well to her pac leader(s) although i would not recommend leash free walking as she may see another animal and give chase. She eats on command, meaning that she has been taught not to eat her food until given permission or command. She currently eats 2 x per day, (morning and night). She is not possessive of food, you can take food away from her at anytime and she will not react. She is fed along with other dogs and is fine, although she will growl if another dog tries to go in her bowl. Her diet has consisted of good quality dog foods (Wellness Core, Nulo, McCormick, Blue Buffalo Wilderness etc, all foods give 5 star rating) I do not believe she has any food allergy, although i may suspect a sensitivity to salmon (I have not confirmed this yet but will). She has been groomed about every 4-6 weeks by the same groomer for the past 3 years. She does very well at the groomers but should be walked prior to grooming to help bring her energy level down. Grooming is required with her, as she does not shed and her hair grows very quickly. I had her on a prescription for Comfortis to control fleas, but has since transitioned her to a daily dose of Brewers Yeast tablets with each meal. She is ok with teeth cleaning and brushing. Please contact me for more information or if you have any questions. Sean@fuzzyfeetdogrescue.org 8582312237

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: San Diego, CA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Note that the puppy pictured is not available but we have many cute puppies like her (male and female). We do not have time to post all the puppies to our website as puppies typically get adopted right away at our adoption events. They are rescued from families that have not fixed their dogs. When we rescue these relinqushed puppies we fix them and the previous owners mother dog free of charge to the relinquisher. If you are interested in adopting a puppy please fill out an application online and state that you are interested in a puppy and would like to learn about who we have available. The best way to see the puppies is at our adoption events. Typically we rescue a lot of Shepherd / Lab Mix puppies but ocassionally we rescue cute terrier puppies like Bolita (shown in the picture) and various other mixes. All puppies will be at least 3 months old and will be Spayed/Neutered and up-to-date on shots prior to adoption. Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog!

She's a great dog and is extremely sweet around myself and other loved ones. She's very playful! She's leery of strangers at first but warms up quickly. She however is not friendly with other dogs. She was attacked as a young puppy and has since become scared and aggressive towards other dogs.
