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.

Hi! I'm Chino, a pretty long haired small dog, maybe Papillon, Long Haired Chihuahua? Not sure, I'm not perfect (who is?) but my personality is more important and, no grooming requirements other than a brushing and an occasional bath. I'm about 1y 15lbs, super sweet, straight off the streets of Cairo, arrived Nov 30--ugh, just when the weather turned cold here:( But hey, who's going to complain if I have a nice warm lap and bed and new furry and unfurry friends! I'm learning English, my first 2 languages are dog and Arabic. (He loves his ball to the exclusion of anyone or anything else If you have a title throwing arm, he will play endlessly and be a tired and happy pup.) Needs a loving home where he will be allowed to unwind, perhaps w/ someone who is home a lot and has a yard away from the scary city or dog walkers who can be alarming at his size. I don't need other dogs, just someone to throw my ball--i'm a bit obsessed:) from foster mom: I am obsessed with playing fetch! I love going back and forth with the ball and could play for hours! I also love playing and snuggling with my toy Lambchop, cuddling in bed, and belly rubs. Little kids should be supervised around me and eased into being introduced to me. I am okay with other dogs outside my home but may sometimes be a little scared.

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Flat-coated Retriever (medium coat). Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) This guy loves to be outside so a person w/ a lot of outdoor time and then snuggly time is his Zazu's ideal home. But he is for EXPERIENCED adopters only, preferably 1-2 people in the home and no children. 5y 38lb Zazu fka Zebracake is a good looking gent, reasonably well groomed and dressed in a lush dark chocolate and black coat. His amber eyes light up his face. His muzzle is very slightly grey, and his mouth opens often into a lovely smile. Zazu is a little shy in his kennel, but gets leashed fairly rapidly. He is a very good walker, marks a little his territory, and eyes the pigeons as well as the squirrels in the park. Well, he is just doing his job, as he is part of the herding group of dogs. Zazu does not mind being stared at by me and the camera. He will sit on command, and is not at all interested in my treats that I thought were quite tasty. He seems to like my caresses all over his body. He is a really very gentle and well-mannered pooch. As we were early visitors at a nearby park, we did not meet many dogs, and those we encountered did not elicit much attention from Zazu. He is an easy going character, friendly, a little shy–at least inside our walls–and a lovely Collie/Retriever mix who is sure to attract connoisseurs of the breeds.

When left alone in the home or yard, she was well behaved but NO dog should ever be left unattended. For exercise, she was taken on slow walks on leash and does not pull.

      Posted Breed: Saluki / Pharaoh Hound / Mixed (medium coat). Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) Who wants a perfectly trained pair of Sight Hounds? Vanilla was a stray on a construction site and was regularly fed by my friend in Bahrain. After she gave birth to 11 puppies, the guard at the construction site collected all of them and hid them hoping to sell them to dog fighters. A friend got the police involved and got every single one back and they went to a kennel where they ended up getting sick and all but the mom and one puppy, Kendall lived to tell this story! They went to a clinic for 2mos where they tried to separate them as Kendall was getting too big to share a cage and Vanilla broke through two cages to get to her baby. We tried adopting them both out while in Bahrain and they were both returned because they wouldn’t eat and cried every night for 5 nights straight. They truly love each other and are never far from one another in the house. They are so low key and are such live bugs! Foster mom flew them in cabin with me from Chicago to Palm Springs CA where they stayed at the Ritz Carlton over Christmas and even went to lunch in Palm Springs! They are very well behaved and always get compliments. Vanilla, mom, is about 2y, 35lbs, adores her baby Kendall who is about 9mos now. They love each other so much there is really no room for another dog in their lives and definitely no cats! Good in the car, on plane, outdoor dining...and no small children as they can be scary. These pups are in California and while we would love to see them rehomed in CA, we are willing to fly them to their perfect furever home!

Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) So far we know that Eddie is about 6, 7y and weighs about 18lbs so a bit big for his breed mix but that's just it--we don't know what his Pap side is mixed with--maybe long haired Chi chi or Pommy?! He's up in RI and getting used to winter, loves his new dog and cat friends, and just chilling. Foster mom says he's a huge kisser! here are his foster notes: We believe him to be a Pomeranian/Chi mix, approximately 7 years old, house trained and ready to find his forever home! Somehow this little guy wound up in a high kill shelter and nobody came to claim him. He was quite scared in the shelter but is settling nicely into his foster home in RI. He loves to be with people, and will let you know when he is feeling uncomfortable or scared, but most importantly, he's learning that he does not have to be afraid anymore – life is good! Eddie arrived weighing 18lbs, almost twice what he should be, but has already lost almost 3 now that he is on a healthy diet and walking regularly. He loves to play with toys, ignores the resident cat, and gets along with his four canine foster siblings, though he at times will try to test the waters and take charge or guard his things. He loves healthy treats so training and rewarding his good behavior is a breeze. His favorite place to be is sitting on your lap or curling up next to you on the couch, and giving kisses. Oh and he loves to be warm and tunnel under blankets! In fact, when its bedtime his foster momma tucks him in – it’s quite an endearing ritual! We feel Eddie would do best in a home without young kids, both due to his size and the fact that the fast movements and loud noises of little ones may make him nervous. If this lovable boy sounds like a good fit for your home, apply for him now before his foster momma decides to keep him!

He has never bitten or scratched anyone to his knowledge. Bruno will chew up shoes if they are left out--so don't leave your shoes out as chew toys! Best in a home w/ no small children due to his energy, and because he is a boy, w/ experienced bully adopters who know enough to be the alpha in the pack:) He can be a bit territorial about his toys and food w/ other dogs so we think his ideal situation is a home w/ a yard and access to other doggies for playtime. He definitely is not a city critter. A volunteer writes: Bruno is a wiggly, playful, sweet bundle of joy! He pulls a little on leash, seems housebroken, sits for treats, and manages to immediately initiate a romance with any tennis ball he finds! I’m not sure I’ve ever met a dog who entertains himself as well!. He play bows with the ball, waltzes with it, rolls on his back with it, eventually chews it up, and then starts the whole cycle with the next one. Just watching him is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face, but he also loves interacting with people (and, so far, other dogs too!). He seems to be one of those dogs who sees a friend in every stranger (the kind of friend he can give kisses to and get belly rubs from!), but I can only imagine the extra-special-lovin’ he has reserved for his family. 11/08/2016 BEHAVIOR AVERAGE Client came to drop off a dog that he stated was left in his apartment by his roommate. Intact, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/8/16 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: No concerns were seen on this assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Bruno was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. He is sexually motivated but able to continue to play when solicited. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruno be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/04/16 During his initial medical examination, Bruno readily allowed all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: Bruno displays a high activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of experience) Note: see potential challenges section below Potential challenges: _X_Destructive behavior: Bruno is a young, active, enthusiastic dog with lots of energy. He will need daily mental and physical exercise and stimulation to channel that energy appropriately. He is also reported to chew up shoes if they are left out, so this will need to be managed in his future home. 11/05/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. He is sexually motivated but able to continue to play when solicited. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruno be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. 11/5: Bruno displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a novel female dog. He displays bouncy body language when the female solicits play. He explores the pen for a bit before attempting to mount again. 11/8-11/13: In a group of playful male and female dogs, Bruno displays soft body language when greeting the novel dogs.

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:) Sparkle looks like a Boston crossed w/ a Pitti...so that would make her a Bitti! a vol writes: “All that glitters is not gold, it sparkles!” And our Sparkle lives up to her name in every way. She’s playful, fun, sweet, loves toys and balls, never stops wagging her tail, and has the best ear-to-ear grin. When she isn’t smiling, which is rare, you can see her adorably pouty underlip–which you’ll want to schmush, trust me on that. Sparkle executes a perfect sit in anticipation of a treat which she takes gently with a sweet wave of her tail. Sparkle spent a few days with a person who developed allergies so couldn’t keep her, and told us that she was friendly, gentle and playful with the children in the home (ages 5 and up). Sparkle seems to be housetrained, using the outside ‘facilities’ as soon as we were out the door, before I take her off leash to play. No need to go to the movies or seek outside entertainment when this little imp is by your side. She’ll be happy with a box full of toys and balls! Guaranteed that you’ll be wearing an ear to ear grin as big as Sparkle’s, so come meet her today. You’ll want to make her yours and we’ll send you home with a tennis ball for her for starters! Sparkle is a brown and white, female large breed dog roughly 2 years old. She was being looked after by a neighbor once her owner lost her home but he cannot take care of her anymore due to his severe allergies towards the dog. Socialization: Around strangers Sparkle is friendly and outgoing. She lived with children ages 5 years and older and was very playful and gentle with them. She plays exuberant with adults and it is unknown how she is with other dogs. She is tolerant around cats but if they swat at her she becomes aggressive. Behavior: Sparkle gets anxious when left alone. She isn’t bothered when her food bowl is touched and is friendly and playful when taking away and bone or toy. For a New Family to Know: Sparkle is friendly and affectionate with a very high activity level. She loves balls, chew bones and sticks to play with and enjoys a long game of fetch. Her commands are sit, down come and stay. She loves walks on the leash and pulls light. Behavior During Intake: She went straight to me walking forward with a wiggling body. She was very wiggly while collaring her which made it difficult to collar her but I did. She allowed me to take a picture and she walked into the kennel with no hesitation. Stray (with finder for three days) Previously lived with: Adults and children (ages five and up) Behavior toward strangers: Friendly and outgoing Behavior toward children: Gentle and playful Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Tolerant but when they swat at her she becomes aggressive Resource guarding: None reported Bite history: None reported Housetrained: None stated Energy level/descriptors: Sparkle is described as friendly and affectionate with a very high activity level. SAFER ASSESSMENT: 9/7/17 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted, with tail wagging and ears back. She allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog stands still and accepts the touch, her eyes are averted, and her tail is in neutral position with relaxed body posture. Dog’s mouth is closed. Tag: 1. Dog assumes play position and joins the game. Squeeze 1: 2. Dog quickly pulls back her paw. Squeeze 2: 2. Dog quickly pulls back her paw. Toy: 1. Dog settles close, keeps a firm grip and is loose and wiggly. She does not place her body between you and the toy. Summary: Sparkle displayed no concerning behaviors on her assessment and was social throughout. PLAYGROUP: 9/6: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Sparkle appears tense. She is soft in body and eye contact, sniffs, exchanges greeting. Sparkle offers bows, begins to solicit running play. She runs alongside the male greeter and begins to jump on him. She offers small air-snaps. Sparkle is able to self-regulate this behavior and continues to run alongside playfully. Based on limited observation and history, the behavior department recommends slow introductions between Sparkle and well socialized dogs. INTAKE BEHAVIOR: Upon intake, Sparkle had a wiggly body and allowed handling. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 9/6/17 During her initial medical exam, Sparkle allowed handling. ENERGY LEVEL: Sparkle’s previous care taker described her as having a very high level of activity. She is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep her engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct her energy and enthusiasm. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience) 09/06/2017 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION Exam Type GROUP BEHAVIOR The previous caretaker of Sparkle reports that her behavior around other dogs is unknown. 9/6: When introduced off leash to the male greeter dog, Sparkle appears tense.
