Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Here's an update from Steffi's foster momma: Do you have a large breed male family dog that needs a playmate to expend his energy? Meet Steffi! Steffi is approximately two and a half years old, who loves to play with her canine friends. When she is not playing, Steffi loves to lounge on the couch and watch her favorite TV shows. She is housebroken, crate and doggy door trained, and knows basic commands. As Steffi is a Pitbull mix, she needs to be in a family that has extensive experience with the breed. In addition, due to Steffi’s energy level, she will do best in a family with no children. She is very motivated by treats, so training is pretty easy! Steffi would do best in a home where owners are familiar with the breed:) If you are interested in meeting Steffi, please complete the on-line application at www.helpadogsmile.org and her foster momma will follow-up with you to determine compatibility. Her adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses of the rescue. Thank you!

More About Blue Nose Pit/Chocolate Lab Breed
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.

They hated to see us go but they knew it was better for us. So this nice lady from the rescue came and got us and now we are all in a foster home. My brother Jack and I are in the same foster home. Which is good cause we both love to play with each other and we got new toys to play with. Jack and I are both 7-month-old chihuahua and pug mixes. The weird thing is I am twice the size of my brother. I am 10 pounds and my brother is only 5 pounds. Of the two of us I think I am the good looking one. My dream is my own furever home. Here is my wish list. People who will love me, take care of me and keep me safe. I will be loyal and love you too!!. I like, kids, adults, other dogs and cats. I am working on house training with my foster mom. I sleep in a crate at night and I am house trained. I have not had an accident in two days! My foster mom is so proud of me. Stuart has been micro-chipped, spayed and is up to date on shots. His adoption fee of $250.00 will help with medical needs of the Rescue group.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 175. Greetings from RUFUS GUFUS! I am just a little guy who had a rough encounter with a big dog .... yep, I came out of it OK but now have a slight impairment that limits me to very short walks. But I am so tiny, wouldn't you just want to cuddle and carry me everywhere anyhow? Please also note, I am quite the fashionista and love to dress up in sweaters and t-shirts and love to burrow under the covers to keep my little body warm! The vet believes I am about 3 years old, a sweet, gentle fellow who wants to have my own human to love. After taking care of me, the vet also made sure I was neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and ready for my forever home. If that is with you, please complete an online application at www.helpadogsmile.org and my foster mom will give you the full scoop on my special needs. Although I don't realize I have 'special needs', due to my limited walking ability, my foster mom says I need a quiet home with no more than one other small, gentle dog as I could easily be knocked down by a bigger dog or playful kitties. I cannot navigate stairs and no pools, please, as I would not survive a fall in a pool. I have learned to go up and down the one step from the house to the patio and walk to the yard for potty breaks! I also like to sniff the flowers in the yard and sometimes take little sunbathing breaks outside. My adoption fee of $175 helps with medical expenses of the rescue. Thank you for looking at my photos and maybe choosing me to be your next best friend! My foster mom says I truly am a treasure!!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $175.00. If you are looking for a sweet little friend Zona might just be the dog for you! She loves being held and when not basking in attention, which she adores, she loves little toys! She is 3 years old and 7 pounds and loves to be with her people. Her one drawback is that she is a little runner so a secure yard would be ideal...she is small so when out she does need to be monitored for her safety. Zona has always been a treasured and loved little girl her family just could no longer care for her so they searched for a rescue and thus Zona came into rescue. She did come in with her friend Prince also on Helpadogsmile.org. If you are interested in learning more about Zona please fill out an application at http://www.helpadogsmile.org/adopt/application/. Her adoption fee of $175 includes her spay, updated shots and a microchip! . Local Phoenix Metro area adoptions only please.

      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $175.00. Hi, my name is Prince. I am a slim 12-pound min pin. I just lost my home because my owner got very ill and cold no longer care for me. I have always been a very loved pet. I am friendly, out-going and get along with dogs and people. I am house-trained and I am learning crate training and the dog door. Might say I darn near perfect. Technically at 10 years old I am a senior, but I give all the younger dogs a run for their money! I love to play, run around and explore the outside. But being an experienced fella I know the benefits of nice long naps as well. My rescue peeps took me to the dog doctor and he said I am a very healthy dog. My blood work is great! So, I am ready for my next life adventure, which is to find a new forever home.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Manchester Terrier / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 175.00. Hi everyone – My name is Stripe and I am looking for my special forever home. My life started out kind of on the “ruff” side. I was found by some good Samaritans on the Apache Reservation and brought to the monthly clinic to be checked out by some awesome veterinarians. My hind legs were paralyzed, and I had a gnarly wound on my back-left foot. My foster family took me in and gave me a second chance and a new lease on life and I have been with them for a few months while learned to walk again and heal. Although they tried to save my leg, I ended up having to have it amputated because of nerve damage to my foot and I wouldn’t leave it alone. So now I’m officially a member of the special tripod club! I think I should get a cool bandana or a cool hat for that. You know, something fashion forward. Because of my original paralysis and residual neurological issues, I do have some issues with holding in my “pee”. I get excited and I pee, and I like to walk and pee and sometimes I can’t hold my pee. The doctor says I may grow out of it, but then again, I may not. But I will try! Also, my good hind leg isn’t as strong as it should be and I would really like to work on that. When I get to motoring (as I like to do) I will drag hind end a bit but doctor thinks with some good rehab, like slow walks, my leg will get stronger. I am about 11 months old now, weigh about 30 pounds and I am a TRUE love bug and been told I'm quite the character. I’m a very happy boy who doesn’t let my “ruff” start diminish my zest for life. I’ve never been around cats but I’m sure I would like them, I just really LOVE to play. I LOVE tennis balls and squeak toys. Squeaky tennis balls are my FAVORITE! Although I get along really well with other dogs, the doctor thinks it might be a good idea to be an only dog for a while so that my new family can devote more time to my special needs and help me gain my strength and establish a routine that might help with my “pee” accidents as well as general puppy training. If you think you would be willing to help me with my special needs and like to become my forever family, please contact Help A Dog Smile for an adoption application. I promise I will give you a lifetime of love and devotion “fur” sure! Stripe has been micro-chipped, neutered and is up to date on shots. His adoption fee of $175.00 will help with medical needs of the Rescue group. If you are interested in Stripe, please fill out an application at: http://www.helpadogsmile.org/adopt/application/
