Posted Breed: Scottish Deerhound / Mixed. Personality I am a sweet and lovable boy. I love to play and can be quite exuberant. Socialization Does the dog like other pets? I would do best in a home without other dogs or cats. Does the dog like children? Due to my shyness with humans, I would do best in a home without children or with older, respectful teenagers. General Socialization Notes Sometimes humans can be scary for me but I am working on my human socialization, with the help of the staff and volunteers at All Breed, I have made tremendous progress in the past 6 months. 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! I am a very sweet boy with lots of love to give! I am also smart and a very quick learner, not to mention, I love to work. Favorite Toys I love to play. Running around and playing fetch are a great way to spend the afternoon. Forever Home I am seeking a patient forever home that can help me learn to trust. I have made so much progress and want to keep the momentum going so my home would need to be willing to work on my human (and maybe even dog) socialization with the help of All Breed Rescue & Training.

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.
