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: Great Dane-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      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? The adoption donation for Dudley 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.

      Breed: Coonhound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      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, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). **UPDATE AS OF 8/20/2017 FROM HER FOSTER MOMMY** Tinkerbell, now called Bell, is a true representation of her breed being positive and loving. Despite her not having the best start in life, she absolutely loves people and enjoys meeting new ones whenever she can. She is very excited when her foster mom comes home from work and runs around like a little bullet of happiness!!!! She is very well behaved when it comes to basic commands and walks well on a leash. Her favorite thing is to snuggle. If it is on the couch or at bedtime, she has to be close to her foster mom. She is so sweet it's ridiculous!!! We are not sure how she feels about cats or children, but other dogs get her curiosities going. It seems to be more of an excitement in nature, but as always a meet & greet would be required. Tinkerbell was found as a stray needing immediate eye care and with her ears cut off. She had scars all over her neck. It was obvious someone had done something awful to her. Tinkerbell ended up at a shelter and became a volunteer favorite. Despite her horrendous past, Tinks is such a happy girl who loves everyone. She's an absolute sweetheart. Tinks likes some dogs, a meet with your dog is always required. Tinks is awaiting eye surgery and we are searching for a foster or forever for our girl to recouperate in. Surgery is held up until we find a home. If you think you can help Tinks - please submit an application and let's proceed. All Tinks needs is a chance, something she's never had. The adoption donation for Tinkerbell is $250.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped!! Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

At any given time , she can be found lounging on the couch or in her foster siblings' dog bed. Tessa's foster family includes 3 other dogs as well as a cat. Tessa enjoys racing her foster siblings out the door when it's time to go potty. She will tell her foster dad when she has to go by waiting at the back door and making a soft grunting noise. Tessa gets very excited when she sees squirrels and rabbits outside. Therefore, a fenced in yard would be best for her. Tessa also enjoys sun bathing for a few minutes when she is outside. She loves going for walks and walks very nicely! Tessa does have anxiety with new people/ situations, but warms up quickly when she is given time (and treats!) to get comfortable. During thunderstorms, she likes to join her foster dad on the couch so much that she lays on top of him. Tessa has done well in training classes and is very proud to show people her hand targeting! Hand targeting is when her foster daddy holds out his hand in various location and Tessa simply touches it with her nose!!! She would love to attend classes with her furever family! Due to Tessa's anxiety, she would do best in a home with older children. The adoption fee for Tessa is $250.00. She will come to you fully vetted, spayed, and microchipped. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Pepper has known some difficult times. She came to the shelter so terrified and shut down that she was at first considered unadoptable. But thanks to the love and compassion she received from the committed volunteers and staff, she has blossomed into the happy, playful, affectionate, gentle, well behaved little girl that we now know and love. Pepper is a small terrier/pit mix, approximately 4 years old. She knows all her basic commands and is very bright and eager to please. She enjoys going for walks and car rides, and loves playing fetch with her tennis balls. But she also loves to just snuggle up on the couch and relax and enjoy her quiet time with her person. Pepper can still be nervous in new situations and when meeting new people. So she is looking for a quiet home with no other pets or small children. She needs a person or family that understands her fears and that can give her the love and guidance she needs to feel safe and happy. And in return, they will be the recipient of her unconditional love and loyalty. She is a truly wonderful little companion! We are seeking a foster or forever home for Pepper. If you are interested in opening up your heart and your home, please submit an application and let's proceed. Adoption donation includes Spay/Neuter, UTD on Vaccinations, Microchipping and deworming and flea treatment.
