He weighs about 65-70 pounds and is around 2 years old. Joker is truly a wonderful dog. He would make a great companion for an active individual, couple, or family. Joker is adventurous, playful, curious and outgoing. Not only that, but he is super treat motivated and LOVES to learn! He is super smart, and picks up commands very quickly. He has already mastered basic commands, including sit, down, stay, and shake! Joker does GREAT with dogs! He is a good candidate for doggy daycare, pack walks, play groups, and off-leash areas. Here's what one of our volunteers has to say about Joker: "Joker is one of the best dogs I've ever met! This big goofy guy is a total lovebug, and will never cease to make you smile. He is extremely people oriented, and wants to be a part of everything you do. He is happy going for hikes and runs, but also would love to hang on the couch and watch Netflix with you. When you first meet him, he is always super happy, and can barely contain his excitement, and so he can be a bit over-eager at times. He is extremely food motivated, and is super smart, figuring out commands and puzzle toys very quickly. With some love, structure, and training, Joker will make an amazing companion." Joker is fully vetted and ready to go home. He is even house-broken! If you'd like to meet this great guy please fill out an adoption application or send us an email!

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, 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.
