Posted Breed: Terrier / Whippet / Mixed (short coat). Murph is a 32 lbs, HW- hound mix who is very shy. He was born to a stray mom as part of a litter of 9. He is the runt of the litter and we brought him to the shelter because his siblings (in foster) had begun to pick on him. He is very scared and lays in a ball in the back of his crate with his head turned away. He needs a special person to step up for him.Intake April 2015. Update: He has been with us over a month now and will now walk very well on a leash and let us pet him. He is not eager for attention but will sometimes approach his kennel gate when we arrive. Update from Foster Mom: My circle of insecurities is getting smaller every day. I am not a fan of males, but I am kinda growing fond of my foster dad. I am most comfortable on my mama's bed in a smaller room where there is less stimulation. I take treats and love when I am on her bed and will snuggle up to her. Out of the bedroom is a different story. I am skittish but coming around. I love to play outside with all my four-legged friends and my new toys! All in all I am a good courageous boy learning to love humans! Due to Ruger's circumstances, he is currently shy around new humans and still learning to trust. Due to that fact, he is not available for adoption. BUT - we are accepting applications and if your application seems like the perfect fit to ensure Ruger will still continue to trust and learn we will work with you and the Foster Family to ensure an easy transtition. ~~ The adoption fee for Ruger is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

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.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lockport, NY
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Earl was born in a litter of feral pups, and did not have human interaction. He was so broken and frightened when he came to us, but he is certainly coming around. He loves meeting other dogs. He is learning that human touch can be good and is curious of people he meets on walks with his foster mom and will let some pet him. His head and tail are held high now. He will need a patient loving person to give him time to trust. He probably would be apprehensive in a home with small children. Earl is learning to play with toys and with his foster sister. He is fun to watch as he is quite awkward. He is becoming less sensitive to loud noises. He could do very well with another dog, or even by himself if he could hang with his human. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lockport, NY
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Skye is a 3 year old male pitbull mix and will soon be neutered. He is potty trained and crate trained and loves to be around people. Skye loves to take naps in his kennel with some country music in the background. Skye loves to cuddle up at home and relax with his stuffed animal. He also likes to chew on elk bones. We have found that any other type of bone he tears apart and could eventually choke. Skye likes to go for walks and he walks very well with an easy walk harness that chains from the front of him. Skye does not like it if you put the harness on from the front, but he will allow it if you stand behind him and slide it over his head. Skye does become timid when walking near other dogs and we have yet to introduce him to another dog. Skye is very loyal to the people around him. There are times he likes to jump up on the couch, but we have been working with him to stay down. If you think Skye could be for you, please consider filling out an adoption application!!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

      Breed: Great Dane-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Lockport, NY
      Posted Breed: Great Dane / Mixed (short coat). Meet sweet Dudley. His life has not started off that great. Dudley ended up in a shelter as a young puppy. He was thereafter adopted out by a family. We were recently contacted by a vet's office who wanted us to save Dudley. His owners did not have the time for him and felt they could no longer handle him. They were at a loss as to what to do. They did not want him to go to a shelter where he would be put down although they were contemplating doing that themselves. DITR stepped in immediately and thankfully got him into a foster home. As some may remember, Dudley ran away from his foster home and had been missing for almost a month. Someone was watching over Dudley and we found him safe sitting in a local pound. Dudley is a gentle giant. His heart is as big as he is. Dudley loves all people. He just wants to please and to be loved in return. Something he hasn't had much of in his life. He needs slow intros to other dogs but then really enjoys their company. He loves to play and run. Dudley would benefit from a fenced in yard. Dudley is not a fan of small animals or cats. Dudley would make any family the perfect, loyal companion. Could that be your family? Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Lockport, NY
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Louie was living in the woods in a nearby Town. A local family was feeding him and he would come at night and eat. It appeared he had been dumped. DITR trapped him and had him vetted and he is now in boarding. Louie is an absolute sweetheart who loves people and other dogs. No small animals are recommended as it appears he has a prey drive. Louie loves to play with toys and go for walks. He is still puppy like and would need training help. However, he is eager to please and very smart. We are searching for a foster or forever home for Lou. He deserves a second chance. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

      Location: Lockport, NY
      Posted Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback / Mixed (short coat). Tess is looking for a place she can finally call her own - FOREVER. Found as a stray, she then went into a shelter where she waited for over a year! She was rescued by DITR and is now in search of her perfect family. Tessa is a 3.5 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is a true sweetheart. She loves to give kisses, go for walks, and relax on the couch! But -she also loves to play ball and go for car rides where she can feel the wind in her fur...sometimes she even tries to bite the air she is so happy to be out & about! She loves to give kisses and get good cuddles in return! Tess gets along well with other dogs her size, but cats are a little too much for her to handle, so we would recommend a home without small animals at this time. Tessa does well with other dogs. Tessa would really enjoy bonding with her new family through basic obedience classes. If you're looking for a dog with more love to give that you could imagine, then Tessa is the dog for you! The adoption fee for Tess is $250.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped.
