Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Speckles is extremely shy at first but as she starts to trust a person, she becomes very playful. She and her siblings were born in the country and have had limited exposure to people. She has a lot of potential. With regular interaction with a new owner and someone that has knowledge of these breeds, Speckles should become an awesome pet. Adoption Fee: $75

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.

      DeeDee

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). DeeDee was dumped at Friends For Life in an un-secure area behind the building. She escaped and we were unable to catch her. She roamed the streets, and became pregnant. She was finally able to be caught after a concerned person slowly gained her trust. She had her 7 puppies on 2-12-18 safely at the shelter. She will NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION until the puppies are weaned and she can be spayed. Your sponsorship of DeeDee will help with vetting costs for her and all the puppies.

      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Cygnas and his siblings were found in the country where they had been dumped as tiny puppies. Cygnas is the largest of the litter and has a variation of black with brown fur coloring. Should be a large dog. Fenced yard is needed for this one, he is a working breed and will be looking for an active home. Micro-chipped (neuter 1-15-18) Cygnas's brother was adopted recently, this is a direct quote from his new family: "Honestly, I cannot believe how easy he is. I could not have picked a better dog."

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ursa and her brothers were found in the country where they had been dumped as tiny puppies. She is in the middle of the pack for anything that is happening. She doesn't seem to be as dominate as her brown brothers but doesn't let them bully her either. Ursa has been quick to learn the routine of the kennel and is growing so quickly. She is probably going to be a fairly large dog. We are estimating 50 pounds. She is prettier than her photos that we were able to get. She was stressed to be away from her brothers. But when we brought one in to play, then no photos were usable because they were all in motion. Come meet her!! She is beautiful........ Micro-chipped Fee: $150

      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Mixed. Redford was abandoned by his owners at a Veterinarian hospital and when contacted said to put him down as they no longer wanted him. Heartbreaking situation. As Redford was a healthy and friendly young dog, he was released to rescue so he could be adopted to someone that would see all his wonderful traits. The volunteers are already in love with this guy. He travels well, gets along with other dogs. He doesn't lead well on a leash YET, but he is learning fast. Micro-chipped Fee $125

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Orion was found alone in a rural area with his siblings. He is at full puppy mode: eating, sleeping and playing. After observing him with his litter mates, he didn't appear to be reacting to noise. Further shelter testing also indicates that he is not hearing. We have not had professional consult yet, but all the symptoms are there. We are looking for a home that is knowledgable about training and caring for a deaf dog. And in this case, a soon to be large one. He has really pretty green eyes at this time. So lovable. Neuter scheduled, up to date on shots. Adoption Fee $150

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Malcom is a sweetheart, very friendly. He does get along with dogs of same size but he is better with females however. Malcom is a people dog. He would much rather spend time hanging out with his people than running around with the other dogs. Born without a paw, but please, don't tell him, he doesn't know it. He is house trained, and completely crate trained. He does enjoy squeek toys and is playful. He can almost talk with this eye expressions. (Malcom was returned by his adoptive family due to now having several small children in the home and they were not able to manage this size dog) Photos are current and from when he was a pup) Microchipped As a puppy we thought he was a Shar Pei but now he is grown, he shows the head and facial characteristics of the Red Nose Pit. No small children, he is not trusting of them, so something may have happened in his former life to cause this. Adoption Fee $125
