Posted Breed: Saint Bernard. My name is Simon. I'm a large and lovable Saint Bernard. I'm a pretty laid back kind of guy who loves people. I LOVE tennis balls and playing fetch. When I'm tired out from playing ball, I love to lay my head on your lap for some petting and attention. I'm very bonded to my buddy, Sara and would like to be adopted with her. I need a yard with a physical fence where I can play safely. **Please Note: We are only able to adopt within 30-40 miles of Baltimore, MD.

More About Saint Bernard 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: Poodle (Miniature) / Shih Tzu / Mixed. Hey, please call me Gus. Yeah I know it's a simple name but I am a complicated little fellow. I am house broken and I can do every trick from, sit, down, roll over & dance if asked. Once I get to know you, I will trust you, let you pick me up and will snuggle on your lap. But until then you have to be patient and understand that I was hurt by a very bad human and can snap at strangers. My other issue is that I don't like other dogs. Being a poodle/ shitzu I will need to be groomed every 8-10 weeks but on the bright side - I don't shed. So all that being said if you are a kind, patient human without a dog or children of any age and are looking for an affectionate, lovable, smart little friend please contact Cindy at 410-472-1172. Please Note: We are only able to adopt within 30-40 miles of Baltimore, MD. For more information on our adoption policies and procedures, please go to http://www.petrescueofmd.org/info/adoption
