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, 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: Chow Chow-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Meet Princess Jasmine! This 3 year old little bundle of love came to us from a shelter in the south, where she had spent a long time with no interest. It didn't take long for her to become a favorite of the volunteers! She is full of happy energy and just can't wait to set off on her next adventure! She is a little on the rounder side, but she gives her all every time she is out for a run. Those little legs work so hard and she runs as well as a lot of bigger dogs! She is most definitely not a fan of other dogs or cats, but that is her prerogative, being a Princess and all. The love she does not bestow on other dogs, she saves up for people! She greets everyone with a full on body wiggle and the biggest smile you can imagine. You feel so much love for this special girl when you look in her eyes and see all she has been through, and she is there just ready to love you back. If you have a pet free home, Jasmine would love to join your family and shower you with love! She deserves all the attention to herself for once in her life. We are seeking a foster or better yet, a forever home for our girl. **beauty captured by Marlee and Me Photography** The adoption donation for Jasmine is $250.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Timmy Jr

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Timmy (or Tim-Tim as I like to call him or Timothy Jr. when he misbehaves) is 5 years old & has the energy of a 2 year old. Don’t be fooled by his looks! He is a total LOVER & just wants to be with his humans. His early life was not so good to him & he has scars all over his body. BUT let’s be honest, his broken jaw has caused the cutest snaggletooth we have ever seen! He spent years chained outside & then 2 more years in a kennel until he came to his foster home in August 2017. He adapted to a loving home life very quickly & enjoys every second of it. He has one foster fur sister, Luna (she weighs 20lbs), who he doesn’t pay much attention to BUT he will sniff her or steal bones back when she’s not looking. (She does the same to him too) He walks great with Luna & has no reaction when he sees other dogs (big or small) when out in the neighborhood. However, if he sees a squirrel, rabbit or cat he will want to chase it! Because of this, he can’t be in a home with cats. Timmy is friendly with people of all sizes but due to his strength & size (65lbs) it is recommended that he be in a household with no young children. He would be ok with children 16 years or older. Please don’t let that sway you! He has been around young kids & has NEVER had a negative reaction both at his foster home & at public events he has been to. He just doesn’t realize his own strength sometimes! Timmy is fully housebroken. He doesn’t bark when he has to go, but he will linger by the door & that’s his way of saying “I have to go potty!” Timmy loves to run around in the yard & he sniffs EVERYTHING! We do request that his adoptive home have a fully fenced in yard so he can run & play to his heart’s desire. He loves basking in the sun in the summer time. Timmy has never had any form of training until now & he has made HUGE progress. He still likes to mouth on you when he plays & he doesn’t realize his strength when he does this. BUT he only does this when he is bored or over stimulated. His tail wags the entire time so he thinks he is being playful with you. But throw him a bone & he will gladly take that to chew on instead. Remember, he has had NO training until now & he used to do this all the time BUT after being in his foster home, this puppy-like habit has significantly decreased. With more patience & training he is perfectly capable of getting to the point where he doesn’t do it at all. He is a very smart boy! When Timmy is tired, he wants nothing more than to snuggle up with his humans. He is a great snuggle partner & will for sure keep you warm in the winter time. He loves belly rubs & ear scratches. He also loves to give kisses. He goes into his crate with no issues at night or when you aren’t home as long as you give him a treat. But he would most definitely prefer to be in bed with you. When he’s been a really good boy he enjoys beef marrow bones or a frozen kong filled with peanut butter. He loves his treats! This lover of a guy deserves his furever home after all he has been through. The adoption donation for Timmy Jr is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Breed: Unknown-Vizsla Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Vizsla / Mixed (short coat). Jynn was found as a stray in a rural Town. No one claimed her. DITR wanted to show this young girl what life was all about. A wonderful DITR foster family stepped right up and took her into her home. Jynn is learning to trust and to know what being loved feels like. Jynn is super smart and eager to please. She has a ton of energy and is still learning lots so an active family and one that can continue her training requirements would be best. Jynn gets along with other dogs, but isn't good around cats. With her energy level and still learning her manners, we would suggest no small children in the home. Jynn deserves a family to call her own - could that be you? **beauty captured by Marlee and Me Photography** The adoption donation for Jynn is $275.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Pepper has been through some difficult times. But after a very long time living in a shelter, she is now in a foster home where she has adjusted wonderfully to her new way of life. She is house trained and crate trained and is incredibly well behaved. She is a playful, affectionate little girl that enjoys snuggling as much as she does playing fetch with her tennis balls. Pepper is a small terrier/pit mix, approximately 5 years old. She knows all her basic commands and is also very quick to learn and eager to please. She enjoys going for walks and walks very nice on a leash. Pepper can still be nervous meeting new people but is fine when people go slow with her. She is looking for a quiet home with no other pets or small children. She needs someone that understands her fears and that can give her the love and guidance she needs to feel safe and happy. In return, she will give her unconditional love and loyalty. She is truly a wonderful, fun little companion and an absolute joy to be with. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Coonhound / Mixed. This ridiculously handsome coonhound mix is Bones!! He is approximately 4-5 yrs old (estimate) and weighs around 50 lbs. Bones was a stray that found himself in a shelter where he was very scared and not doing well. So he became a Diamond and is now safe in a foster home. When Bones first arrived at his foster home he was very unsure of things. He knew nothing about life. It was like having a brand new puppy but in an adult dogs body. His foster mom was heartbroken to see how scared and unsure of everything this sweet boy was. It seemed clear to her that he had never known the comforts of a home and simply had no life experiences. Bones is now learning all about life and has come so far, but his new family will have to be patient with him and continue to guide him. This boy is a complete love bug that just wants to be wherever his humans are. He is very active and loves to run and play but also appreciates his downtime. On his wishlist from his new family is lots of yummy treats, a good antler to chew, some fun toys, someone that will enjoy his daily walks with him, a fenced in back yard where he can play and get his zoomies out, and most importantly a whole lot of LOVE!!! Bones will do best in a home without small children. This is because at times he is still fearful of new things , and he does have impaired vision (not blind and does not slow him down), so all of his family members should be old enough to understand and respect that. Also no cats for this boy. With proper introductions and slow integration Bones does ok with other dogs; however he does seem to prefer female dogs. Of course a meet is always required to assess compatibility with any other dog. Are you the special person this sweet boy has been searching for? The one that will finally give him all he deserves and has sadly missed out on in his life? If you would like to meet him to find out fill out your application today!!! The adoption donation for Bones is $250.00. He will come to you fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, deworming, and flea treatment.

      Posted Breed: Husky / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). COURTESY POST; Penny is a 5 year old Husky/Boxer mix, who is spayed and current on all of her shots. She is housebroken and crate trained; however, she doesn't really need her crate much anymore. She loves her dog bed! She also loves to run and stretch her legs while outside, so a fenced yard is preferred, but not mandatory. She loves walks and is friendly with people; however a home without young children would be best for Penny. While she now attends dog daycare and is fine with the other dogs there, a home without another dog is recommended, as she doesn't always like to share her food and toys. Penny is super sweet and affectionate! For more information on Penny, please email pinnaclek9@aol.com, or complete an application here.
