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.

Foster momma also said that the rescue did a DNA test on me and I'm full blooded Staffie which makes me extra special! I am a quiet, calm, snuggly puppy!! I never bark at home and I've loved every human I've ever met! I also love other dogs of all shapes, sizes, and ages as I've lived with so many in my life! My foster moms says that even though I'm older that if I am patient the perfect family will come along and love me for everything I have to offer no matter what! My advanced years just mean I'm a super mature, well behaved, low-key pup! I love naps so I'm perfect for a low-activity human/family, but I also love walks and hikes and other adventures so I'd be just as happy with an active family with children. If you give me a chance I'll show you how great I am!! So will you be my furever family, pretty please? Please contact app@aarfhouston.org for more information about this dog.

      rescue
      Breed: Labrottie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Rosie may be a Lab/Rottweiler mix. She's approximately 3 years 7 months old and weighs around 61 lbs.. She loves to run and play and is so smart! She knows the commands sit, stay, down and wait. Rosie is very affectionate and is always happy to see you. After a joyful greeting, she settles down and loves to snuggle up. Her preferred place is curled up at your feet. Rosie also enjoys tumbling about with her bonded brother, Sam. She is learning to walk on a leash, is crate-trained and housebroken. I didn't have to teach her at all. She came to me ready to do her business outside! Rosie has not been around cats, so I don't know how she would do with them. Since she's a strong girl, she would probably do better with older children. However, she is very loving with my 4 & 6 year old grandchildren. She's always trying to give them kisses. Rosie is friendly and playful with the other dogs in our pack, however she does not like strange dogs to charge her. With proper introduction, she will become comfortable with another dog and soon they will be playmates. Rosie has accepted new foster dogs that come to our home with no problem after a proper slow and careful introduction. Rosie does need a bit of socialization with the outside world, and we are working on that. She needs time to be at ease with people who are new to her and in new situations. She will bark at newcomers and be aloof initially, but will warm up. Rosie has been trained not to sit on sofas or beds, or to jump up on counters in case new owners would prefer the same. However, I'm sure she wouldn't mind learning how to be a couch potato or snuggling up with you! Rosie will need someone who is patient and experienced with dogs that are a bit shy. She needs someone who will take her out to explore the world. She is a joy, very affectionate with her family and very loyal. She would make a wonderful best buddy! Rosie and Sam are very bonded and I would love for them to find a home together, but it is not a must. The adoption fee includes vet check, vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip.
