Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi. I’m Sunshine, and I’m about 4 years old. My story is one of hope and survival, as I was found injured beside the road by a Good Samaritan. This person cared enough to pick me up, and get me to the shelter. The DFW Humane Society was able to pay for me to get the necessary surgery to repair my leg, and to provide a safe place for me to recover. I know some commands, and I love to run and play. I am unsure of small children and other dogs, and will do best in a quiet home. You could say that I’m a special girl that is looking for a special home. One with lots of love, soft beds, and grass to play in. Come see me

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: Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi there. I'm Tank. I'm about 1 year old, and I’ve had a rough start to life. Despite my rough start, I love life. I love people. I love other dogs. I love to play. I have not learned the art of playing gently, so a home without children or small pets will be best for me for now. My perfect home would be one with another dog as a playmate, and a large yard. I do know some commands. I just need a home with love and patience to get me up to speed on this forever home thing. So I'm here, and ready to start the next chapter of my life. Come on by, and let's meet.

      Posted Breed: Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed. ~~Hi. They call me Ruby. I’m about 3 years old and was rescued from another shelter. You might think based on my picture that I’m just another average looking dog. But come meet me, and you will notice the most unusual coat. My coat is smoky gray, with black and red blended in. I’m quite unique. When you meet me, I might be excited to have a visitor, but give me a minute to settle down, and you will find one sweet, friendly girl, who just wants a family to love. So if you are ready to take a chance on me, I'm ready to take a chance on you. I'm here. I'm waiting.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. My name is Cody and I’m a playful boy! I’m about 5 years old and my family gave me up because they could no longer care for me and my companion, Mary. If you have room in your heart, we would love to stay together. I'm an active boy so I'd love to have someone to play fetch with, to give me belly rubs and to chase me around in circles.

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). Hi. My name is Shadow. I’m about 1 year old, and I was brought in because my owner works long hours. I am an active boy, in need of a home with a yard where I can run and play. I would do great in a home that can keep me busy. A home with other dogs would also be terrific. You might think that an active guy like me would just want to run and play, but I must share that I also am quite the cuddlier. Come see me.

      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). What’s up? I’m Stanley, and I’m about 1 ½ years old. I was rescued from another shelter. Are you up for a sweet, ready to romp challenge? They say I’m a pointer mix. I definitely have the high energy of a pointer, and I’m a happy, playful boy. I like toys. I like water. I like to run and play. Oh, and did I say that I love everyone? I do love everyone, but have not yet learned the art of playing gently. Therefore, a home without small children would be better for me. A yard with room to run and play is high on my list. Come on over, and let’s meet.
