Posted Breed: Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie / Beagle / Mixed. 4/27/15: Sprite got scared and climbed out of fenced area and is missing! If you see her she won't let you get close, but please contact someone with STAR. Bio: RESCUE ONLY / NEEDS REHABBER TO WORK ON SOCIALIZATION Sponsored for rescue! Update 12/8/13: Sprite is fine with other dogs. No way of knowing about cats, no cats here to test her with. She is not good with people. She avoids them at all cost. If you pick her up she is inclined to bite, so will need to go to a rehabber to work on her socialization. She is a very sweet and pitiful dog. She needs to be in special hands and worked with as it appears she was not socialized with people growing up. 11/12 update: Currently in the kennel due to foster family having to stop fostering for awhile. Sprite is very shy doesn't want to be in the kennel, comes into eat and drink, then sleeps out in the cold. Had snow on her this morning. She was kenneled with Ashton for the few hours he was here, and had not issues. I may actually put her with another dog, as she did attempt to come in when Ashton arrived. Original Bio: Shy, needs socialization. She’s getting closer to foster parents every day and has begun using doggie door to basement. Plays with their poodle and cocker. Origin: (PR) ROWAN COUNTY 10/1/14 update: Sprite has been doing better in foster home the last few months. Loves the other animals she is living with and still a little shy about being caught but seems to enjoy being petted on now. She is getting updated vaccinations 10/7/14 and still hoping for a home of his own!

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.
