More About Pomeranian 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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees / Red Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). GOLDIE HAWN - F, Pyrenees/Red heeler mix, 6 months old. She is spayed, UTD on vaccines, and microchipped. She is the ultimate lovebug and gives the best doggie hugs! She loves to lounge around the house with you or go out and play with toys in the yard. She adores kids of all ages and would like to have some 2 legged siblings. She does good with cats. She does great with dogs on leash but once she is out with them she wants to play rough and some dogs don't like it and want to fight. So needs either needs to be an only dog or with big dogs that can match her play style and energy. She is too rough for dogs smaller than her. She rides great in the car and loves going places to meet new people and animals. She does good on leash and doesn't pull much. She would make an excellent jogging or hiking partner. She loves all kinds of toys and chew bones. She is potty trained but will have an accident if not taken out often as she doesn't have a 'tell' when she needs to go. She doesn't potty in the kennel either. If you would like to meet this furry lovebug, please contact Brandi at 580-483-4028.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). COOKIE - F, Staffordshire Terrier, approximately 1 year old and weighs about 45 pounds. This sweet Staffie girl stole the hearts of those of us who met her at first sight. She was found skinny and beat up with deep wounds on the left side of her head and face and brought to the home of one of our Humane Society fosters for help. After flea and tick treatments, food, a bath and care for her wounds,... Cookie got a clean bill of health from our vet. She is spayed, micro chipped and up to date on shots and amazingly laid back and sweet. She does not mind the crate, is potty trained and really is just happy to be safe and loved. This girl needs a home that has a back yard with lots of room to run and get her energy out. She gets along with all her foster siblings, is good with kids, walks well on the leash and loves to just relax. She is simply a beautiful dog inside and out - a great family pet and companion. The only thing she is not too fond of yet is having the left side of her head touched where her wounds are still healing: she shies away.... For a meet and greet and love at first sight, please call Sabine at 580-483-3410

He is working on bite inhibition while playing, he gets a little mouthy.

He enjoys going for rides and meeting new friend. He is great with all dogs and even cats. He would be good in a home with no kids as he is too energetic for them. He is potty trained but will have an accident if you are not paying attention to his need to go out. He does not potty in a kennel. He can escape out of a regular metal kennel but does fine in an XL plastic kennel. He cannot be left outside alone or he will chew his way out of any yard. He does do fine if you are outside with him. He is not for the faint of heart. He needs an understanding home, someone that will spend the time to train him and let him be his goofy self. He craves attention and wants to be wherever his people are. He can only go to a home with a fenced in yard. He is UTD on shots and microchipped. He is scheduled to be neutered in the next 2 weeks.

She also loves to curl up on the couch and cuddle. She's very sweet and mild-tempered and gets along great with other dogs when properly introduced, loves to play with kitties as well. She's up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. If you are interested in adopting this great dog, please contact Kristen at 512-775-5262.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). THELMA & LOUISE - F/F, Lab/Dane Mix, approximately 8 months old. These two girls were found hiding from passerbys in the country where their previous owners abandoned them. They were covered in ticks and their paw pads were damaged, most likely due from all the walking they did while on their adventure. Thelma and Louise are a bonded pair and it would be best for them to go to their furever home t...ogether. Both are timid at first but they are gentle and will come around quick with some love and understanding. They do well playing with other dogs once a proper introduction is done. They are unsure of what exactly a cat is but don't seem to mind them being around. Both are crate trained and mostly potty trained (only a couple accidents). Although Thelma (white strip on nose) loves to spend time outside, she loves it even more when she gets to spend her time cuddled up to you giving plenty of kisses. Louise is the more shy of the two but just as sweet and gentle. She loves to play with her sister and take naps in her crate. However, she is the one that needs the extra time to warm up to you. It's clear that she may have been hit before so when you approach her fast, raise your voice, etc she will cower to the floor or run to her crate. But this doesn't stop her from opening up and being herself, a total sweetheart! Both have had their first round of vaccinations and dewormed and will have the second round of vaccinations, be microchipped and spayed before adoption. If you're interested in adopting these two sweethearts please contact Alicia at 580-656-6556.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). LIP - M, Chihuahua, approximately 2 years old. This little guy is funny, sweet and a very loving boy. He came to us from the shelter in hopes of finding his forever home. He did not do well at the shelter because it created stress and made him hostile and defensive, but once he was in our home, he turned into a little character who really could have his own YouTube channel. He is house broken and crate trained, fearless and walks on a leash like a trained show dog. He knows b...asic commands and responds well to his name. He gets along great with the other dogs of all sizes in our home, and he likes to steal laundry and take it to his bed, unroll the occasional toilet paper supply, and he may help himself to left over food on the counter. He never destroys a thing, it is for his own entertainment. When busted, he is totally remorseful. It appears he has one of his foster brothers enrolled in his Mischief Bootcamp, the dynamic duo gets in trouble together now. Lip weighs about 14 pounds, is neutered and up to date on shots. Lip flinches when we move toward him a bit too fast, it is pretty clear he was hit before. When he meets a stranger, every bit of ferociousness comes out of him - part of the Chihuahua trait to defend his people and home, part because he simply is scared. Once he is over his initial fear, he LOVES to cuddle: he is a great nap and bed time buddy. If you want to meet Lip, please contact Sabine at 580-483-3410 ❤️
