Posted Breed: Pug / Spaniel / Mixed (short coat). Name: Brooke Age: 2 years Gender: Female Breed: Pug / Spaniel Weight: 22 lbs Dog friendly: Yes, would do best with another friendly, playful dog, but needs slow introductions when meeting new dogs! Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: No House trained: No Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate - High History: From a shelter in Kentucky Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: Brooke is a very sweet little mystery mutt! She almost looks like a pug got together with a black lab ;) Brooke is a shy girl. She doesn't meet people or dogs with open arms, but give her some time and she loves other dogs! Wrestling with the resident Corgi is one of her all-time favorite activities. She is very fearful with new people, and will give a growl warning and lots of barking telling them them to back off. Brooke loves HER people, and while she is a fantastic little snuggler who adores foster mom and dad, she would not do well in a house with new people coming and going without further training. She does better with women than men. Brooke is still working on her house training and general manners but she's improved a whole lot! She would benefit greatly from continued socialization with people and dogs. She is a graduate of Basic Training at Twin Cities Obedience Training Club. She knows sit, touch, down, shake, wave, bow, and "relax" on her mat. She is a very fast learner, loves treat rewards, and LOVES going to school! She is also a graduate of Fetch Dog Training's class Wallflowers, for shy and fearful dogs. She has completed a Tricks class and has begun training in agility. She really loves her agility classes! As of February 2017 she has been taking these classes continuously for 3 months now. Her new forever home must commit to ongoing training... she loves learning, and it does her so much good and boosts her confidence in regards to strange people and strange dogs. She still has a way to go being comfortable with strangers, but she is making so much progress. Brooke loves toys, chewing on bones, and all sorts of fun things! She is crate trained and being crated when left alone is important so that she doesn't get into any trouble. She is very food and toy motivated so with lots of positive reinforcement she is a quick learner! She is very agile, and can leap from couch to chair and back with ease... got a coffee table? She might hop on that as a pit stop along the way! Brooke is very alert to all goings-on outside of the home and is a very vocal dog. She will alert to strangers and other dogs outside the fence or window. She would not do well in a living situation with shared walls. If you're looking for a young adult dog who is ready to learn and you are patient with love to give, Brooke is ready to grow with you and learn how to be the best little girl she can be! Experienced adopters only please!!!! If you are interested in meeting her please fill out an application today!

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.

Kid friendly: Yes House trained: On a schedule, Yes! Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Pulled from an animal control Adoption Fee: $350 From the Foster: During the time we've had Tonka, he's been a BIG love bug!! He's not had the greatest life, but it certainly hasn't got him down!! He thinks he's a lap dog and loves to give hugs and get belly rubs. He's a gentle giant!! He is currently living with 3 other resident dogs, 2 female and 1 male. He would do best with other non dominant dogs - I don't think he is dominant but can be a little over bearing in his play :) Tonka would do best in a house without cats. He does try to chase them and is very interested in them and very hard to redirect his attention. We free feed our bunch, and he has had no food aggression. He also takes treats very gently. He is crate trained and once in his crate, he wines a little, but settles down quickly and takes a nap :), with no barking. On a schedule he is house trained, too! He knows how to sit on command and is working on walking on a leash, he does like to pull when he's on a mission to see something, but if there is nothing grabbing his attention, he will walk casually by your side. This dude is built like a Tonka truck ;) ! He is a big beef cake that is looking to be loved for the rest of his life!! You will not be disappointed, this guy will give you lots of affection to show you how much he appreciates you rescuing him!!

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Name: Lucy Date of Birth: Approx. 7/4/14 Gender: Female Breed: Pitty Weight: 50 Dog friendly: Yes with proper intros, best with males Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate History: Local Surrender Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: Lucy has an awesome personality and loves to play. Tug-of-war, fetch, and catc h- me - if -you- can are her favori tes; and she love s to run and jump on the trampoline. She is always ready to pounce at the opportunity to play. She has a great sense of humor and makes us laugh daily. She is house-broken and rare ly has accidents. She has also learned how to sit, lay down, wait, speak, and give 5. She is intelligent and curious. Because of this, she makes a great listener and perks her ears and watches you intently when you speak to her. She has been around children and does well. Cats are another story… She finds them very interesting and will give chase. We have a hard time redirecting her when she sees a cat and think she would do better in a house without cats. We are working on socializing her with other dogs as our older dog doesn’t get along with her. This has caused some hesitancy in Lucy, but she shows awkward interest in other dogs when she sees them. Lucy is a very happy dog with lots of energy. She is always very happy to see you and will greet you at the door when you return home. She has learned not t o jump on people, but needs reminding sometimes. She still pulls when we walk her on a leash, so this will need some more work. If we use a gentle lead while walking her, she does just fine. She is kennel trained and very rarely whines or barks when she is kenneled. We do leave her loose when we leave the house and she does very well. She is not food aggressive and has learned to wait until her food is in her bowl to begin eating. She is a “lap” dog or, better stated, she loves to sit on you.. sometimes this is on your lap , sometimes on your stomach. She will settle down and snuggle with you towards the end of the nig ht or during a quieter time during the day. She loves to have her chest and stomach rubbed. She has brought a lot of joy and happiness to this household and will be a great addition to someone’s home and family. She is up-to-date on her shots, spayed, and chipped.

As you can see from my pictures I am a bit of a scardey cat. I am a very sweet and loving pup, but I have a some fears that I will need help to continue working on. Men seem very scary to me so I do best when they ignore me, women can be a little scary too but I warm up to them much faster. I do get startled easily, so I would do best in a home no kids or kids 16+. Now that you know my fears lets talk about things I like! I have been with my foster mom for a few months now, and love being around her and her female friends, I like to follow her everywhere she goes. Once I get over my fears, we can be best buds! I also love having a confident dog around, she helps me worry less about the big scary world. I really like walking, hiking and being out in nature. I also love all dogs, and like to play and be a goof ball. I love to fetch and play chase with other pups too!"

This is very typical chi behavior, as they really tend to prefer their family and be protective. Someone with Chi experience or who has done some research to understand their personalities would make a much more successful match! She is very sweet and loves to cuddle. She is potty trained, and will use the potty pads provided to puppies, also. She is not a fan of the crate, but does fine left out.

House trained: Yes Crate trained: Doesn't need to be Energy level: Low/Average History: Owner Surrender after death Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: Ranger is blind but that doesn’t stop him. He learns your house and yard pretty quickly and then nothing stops him. Well…he isn’t fond of stairs. A few to go outside isn’t too bad. He loves to be brushed and combed. He will follow you around the house…especially the kitchen. He would gladly clean up any treats you drop for him. Ranger is 100% house trained with no accidents, and does well left loose in the house, even if you’re gone during the day. Ranger likes to hang out and sleep on his dog bed or on the floor. He really likes being in front of the fire. He would do best with a fenced yard not because he is a runner, but because he needs to be able to learn his territory safely. What he needs the most is a forever home to live out his golden years. One that understands that he needs to familiarize himself with new things, and that understands that while he is a very smart, loving dog, his days of going for long walks and going new places are behind him. He is, however, ready to welcome you home every evening, and help you watch movies, and relax in the backyard, and cook, and anything else you love to do at home if you are ready to give him the chance.

      Age: Adult
      Location: Eden Prairie, MN
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Name: Cinnamon (Now goes by Maggie!) Age: Date of Birth: 08/29/2012 Gender: Female Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier mix Weight: 41 pounds Dog friendly: Selective, might be best as only dog. Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Yes, 10+! House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Medium History: Local dog from Minneapolis Animal Care & Control Adoption Fee: $200 From the Foster: Maggie is a total package type of dog. Completely house trained, knows what furniture she is and isn't allowed on, absolutely no accidents, can go a full workday left out at home, good on walks with minimal pulling, loves to play fetch and tug, has all her basic commands on lock, and is totally fine sleeping wherever you tell her too - but if it is in your bed she would be delighted. She is incredibly smart, almost too smart, and can learn just about anything you can figure out how to train her to do. If you watch the amazing video her previous foster made, you can see how she is the perfect summer adventure dog, and she makes a fantastic snuggler for those sit in front of the tv nights. And in the winter, she loves wearing sweaters to keep her nearly hairless belly warm from the snow. She lets you know when she wants to play by bringing her preferred toy to you and pestering you until you play with her. And when she wants to go outside or back inside, she will gently tap the door with her paw and if you don't hear her, a single bark. Maggie is quick to like new people, but once she opens up after a couple weeks and gets really comfortable with you, you might even get a few kisses along with a very wiggly dog whenever you come home. Now you might be asking, if Maggie is the whole package, why is she still up for adoption? Well Maggie has a couple of quirks that means that she needs a very special family to give her a perfect forever home. Maggie is dog reactive. She will lunge, bark, or growl on walks when she sees other dogs. She is decently strong, so make sure whoever is walking her is sturdy enough to do so. Training has been improving this, but at her best, Maggie will still need VERY slow introductions to new dogs, and may only get along with a very certain type of personality of dog. My best bet would be a chill male who isn't going to try to be the boss, but won't get steamrolled by Maggie's dominant type personality. Maggie is what I call an "alert dog." Meaning, she will excitedly bark or growl when she hears the doorbell, knocking, or a car door slamming, or when she can see people outside in or near her yard. She will also bark if she hears similar sounds from the tv or radio. Once that person comes inside, she is instantly all wiggles and just wants to sniff the new person and get pet. This means that she likely would not be a good dog for a home with shared walls, or your neighbors might be a bit annoyed by her version of telling you someone is coming to visit. Maggie has a very high prey drive, so she needs to not live with any kitties or other small critters. Even if the small critters stay in their cages, I'm afraid that if she has access to seeing them in there, she will try to force her way in. She will also try to run after squirrels and bunnies on walks, but we are working on that impulse control with training too. Lastly, Maggie needs to be in a home with no small children and no small children coming in the future. Small kids make Maggie nervous. This is likely due to unpredictable noises and movement, and kids not being able to read her reactions to things. Small kid visitors would be okay as long as someone is watching to make sure she doesn't get overwhelmed, and that she is given a safe space away from the excitement where she will be left alone to chill. If there are going to be children living in the home, 10 years and older would be best. Thank you for reading though this essay of a bio for Miss Maggles. Feel free to send in an application if you have any questions on Maggie, and good luck finding your new best friend!

I am 13 years old, but don't let my age fool you. I'm a very active, feisty girl. I love food, belly rubs, walks, treats, the dog park, cuddles, dinner time, naps, toys, and eating. Did I mention I love food? I'm part Dachshund and part Chihuahua - a Chi-weenie, they say. From the foster: You would never know Gidget was 13 - she acts like a much younger dog. She's full of energy and sass, and I've never met a dog who loves food more than her. She's such a sweetheart, loves going for walks or running around at the dog park and loves cuddles with her human. I don't think she's a great dog for small children; she can be a little nippy. Gidget also has eye problems that require eye drops three times/day. She's really used to getting them and doesn't fuss at all.

Her house manners and training are phenomenal! She stays off of the furniture (though she’d love for you to invite her up to cuddle) and never touches anything that isn’t hers. She’s also an angel in her kennel. She’s smart, motivated and loves to learn (especially for treats!) - since she’s been with us she’s added 7 tricks to her repertoire and is learning more all the time. She’s very responsive and eager to please. A yard for her would be great as she loves to go outside and it would be nice for her to have open space to run and play. An apartment would be doable as long as the person is dedicated to exercising her mentally and physically. (Which is needed in either case, but might be easier/ more convenient with the yard). She will relax if you are relaxing and she's had other activity, but she's not a couch potato. She's smart, and will be happiest with someone who will work with her in ways that keep her mentally stimulated. She's very treat motivated and eager to please, you definitely get out the work you put in to her, and then some! She does need to be an only pet. She does not get along with cats or dogs, and will try to chase rabbits and squirrels. Though she’s improved greatly with squirrels. She needs someone who will continue training her so she can walk comfortably past other dogs, especially because she really loves her walks. Walking comfortably past other dogs should eventually be possible, but she should not be placed in areas of interaction with other dogs. Jynx has a beautiful spirit and will win your heart in no time!

I have had a rough start to life and had a few health challenges but I’m all healed up and ready to find my forever family!! My favorite thing in the world is to be next to my humans, I love snuggling and sitting with them and making sure they know I’m right there for anything they need. My second favorite thing is peanut butter frozen bones and de-stuffing any sort of stuffed animal. I love those! I’m pretty food oriented (but I’m grain free!) and will do just about anything for a treat. I’m housebroken but not crate trained. I do well without a crate and just lie on the couch and protect the neighborhood when I’m left alone & I’m not overly vocal says my foster family. I love car rides, baths and even love going to the vet (They love me there)….not many dogs can say that. I also put up with my foster family putting hats and clothes on me, I secretly love my jammies! I get so so so excited to see my humans my little body just wiggles and wiggles! My forever home shouldn’t be a chaotic one, I prefer it just to be chill….I like walks and playing outside, but am still learning this whole family dog business, so I will need a person/family that is willing to work on this with me and probably without small humans running around, the older ones I can handle. So far I love it! If you’re wanting a Velcro fur friend and are willing to spoil me rotten- I mean, train me- then I’m your dog! Can’t wait to meet you. – Princess Tomato

      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (medium coat). Name: Argo *Deaf* Age: 3 years Gender: Male Breed: Australian Cattledog Weight: 36 lbs Dog friendly: No Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: Older, considerate, kids with dog experience only House trained: Yes Crate trained: Yes Energy level: High; not suitable for apartments or shared walls History: Local surrender Adoption Fee: $250 From the Foster: ARGO - My best guess is that he was named after the movie ARGO which was about a rescue mission. Argo was rescued from the a humane society but his adopters didn’t know he was deaf and decided they were not the right people to meet his needs. I’m not sure where Argo was before that but it seems obvious he had love as well as some bumps in the road. I didn’t think I was up to the deaf dog challenge either...until Argo won me over with his charm and I did a little research. Deaf dog training is really simple and there are lots of resources available to help you. One of my favorites is Deaf Dogs Rock . The important thing is for everyone in the house to be consistent with clear signals. Argo has been working with a trainer and knows basic commands and a few tricks. He loves to learn and you could have lots of fun teaching him new moves. His foster mom will share his hand signals and the trainer may be available depending on your location. We ran into a young boy out on the trail recently who turned to his folks and said “now that’s a good looking dog!!!”. It’s unfortunate Argo is not listed as “kid friendly” because Argo loves kids. He will wiggle right up to them looking for pets and treats. Argo has some OCD behaviors including shadow chasing and tail spinning. Some kids would think that’s funny and encourage the behavior, or even worse tease him with laser pointers or flashlights. A mature child could help Argo redirect his compulsive behavior by throwing his ball and taking him for a walk. Argo loves to play fetch and will always bring the ball back and drop it at your feet. If it rolls away he will pick it up and bring back to you. Exercise and mental stimulation are really important for Argo. Boredom and over crating would not be good. Argo has some fear aggression with mostly larger dogs. An experienced handler should be able to help him work on that but at this time dog parks and doggie day care would not be recommended. He seems to like smaller dogs but would need slow introductions and close observation. Argo will try to herd kitties but does not show other cattle dog tendencies like nipping. Deaf dogs do best with a fenced yard and secure gates since they do not have recall. Argo does not like to be left on a tie out, he likes to be with his people. Argo usually sleeps on the ottoman at the foot of the bed and snuggles up for belly rubs in the morning. Sometimes he chooses to sleep in his crate with the door open. His crate is right next to my shoe racks and he has not shown any interest in them. Good boy Argo (thumbs up in doggie sign)! Argo would thrive in an active environment that understands his need for exercise and mental engagement. He would do well in a home that offers lots of structure and use of positive training methods. Argo is very sensitive and may have been punished for his compulsive behaviors and lack of understanding his deafness. He is a happy sweet boy who really wants to please. Gain his trust and you will be rewarded with an amazing companion.
