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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Dexter is a mix of sorts. He's kinda built like a pig but looks like a cow!!. He was on his own, it took almost a month to get him to come close enough to make friends. He was interested but, unsure and cautious. He has been inside now for the past month and has proved to be a loyal companion. Dexter does not rush your guests at the door. He will sit back away from the door, perhaps in another room. He will bark but, keep his distance. He does well with other dogs. His foster family writes this about Dexter - Dexter came to us out of nowhere. He initially would not come to us. He would chase our cats and eat everything he could. Now he leaves the cats alone, will go outside for potty and always stay around the house. Once he gets to know you - he is as loyal as can be!! YOUR home will be where his HEART settles down at!! He is devoted and always near us. I was informed he is 3-4 years old (10/11/2016) and is UTD on all his shots. He will walk well on a leash, but I feel he worries he will be taken somewhere he doesn't want to go. He needs to know you will be keeping him for forever!! He will talk if he wants something and plays like a puppy with our other dog. He gets along with all he meets - including children!! The adoption fee for Dexter 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.

      Location: Lockport, NY
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Zane is a 5-6 yr old Lab/Shepherd/Pit mix and is a very playful boy. He absolutely loves playing with toys, especially his Kong Wubba. Should be attended when in fenced yard, if left alone he likes to "visit". Zane is dog selective, and only really likes to be around female dogs. Guys, can you blame him? Zane loves to go for walks and just hang out with his people. He walks beautifully on leash and does not pull, takes treats in the gentlest manner. Hey, he has great manners all around! He would make a STELLAR only dog, or an addition to a female dog home. Zane also gets along wonderfully with cats and can often be found snoozing on the couch with the cats nearby sleeping as well!! Please consider giving this guy a place to rest his head. The adoption fee for Zane is $250.00. He will come to you fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

She is good with active dogs who want to play with her, but just like all of our Diamond Dogs, if you have an animal in your house a meet and greet between the two is required!! Because of her size a home with small kids (under 5) in not recommended. Is Kiara the girl for you??!! Kiara's adoption fee is $250.00. She will come to you spayed, fully vetted, and microchipped.
