Posted Breed: Terrier / Boxer / Mixed. Patti's Christmas wish......a home for the holidays! Patti has been perhaps our most overlooked dog this year. Patti has learned to walk nicely on a halti leash, goes potty mostly outside, (new transitions and routines may be throwing her off, but we think she spent the first year of her life tethered up outside somewhere) and her excitability around other animals turns out to be the biggest Joie de vive! She sees every new animal as somebody to play with! Most cats seem to find her wrestling highly offensive though. At adoption events she is the first knucklehead to roll over for a belly rub, or bowl you over to give kisses! We think she may be part American Bulldog, cause she is either really stubborn or really dense. She's had no issues sharing toys or deferring to other resident dogs. While she isn't looking for trouble, she is confident and won't take getting bullied. Her fosters can get her attention faster than their own dogs. While she likes food, she eats with the others without an issue. Kids are able to hug her and lay on her and she loves the doggy bed. She can be a bit of a bull in a china shop when she is excited, but she's lovely. Please help us find this girl the fur ever home she deserves for the holidays! If you are interested, please submit a non-binding application to meet her: http://kninerescue.rescuegroups.org/info/file?file=19787.pdf

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.

      Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound. Calling all adventurers: Nash is a 1-year old, 50 lb treeing walker coonhound. He is very affectionate and loves adults, children, and other dogs of all sizes, but like many hound dogs, we do NOT recommend him for a house with cats. Nash loves “gnashing” on bones, romping around with his squeakers, and playing with his foster brother and fellow hound dog. Nash is crate trained and is even learning to ring bells to tell us it’s time for a bathroom break! Though he is making great strides, he still requires a lot of training and will need to go to an active household that is committed to REALLY exercising and working with him. Please submit a non-binding application to meet Nash. http://www.kninerescue.com/info/adoption

      Breed: Cocker Spaniel
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Larry, a beautiful blue-eyed purebred Cocker Spaniel, would do best in a smaller household without children. Despite his looks, he is not a cuddler or 'hold me, hug me' type of dog. He is strong willed and has spent the last 2 years with a foster who has been smoothing out his rough edges. He has made great progress but will always need a strong and consistent leader to help keep him secure, comfortable, and happy. He likes the company of other dogs. This is a courtesy crosspost. You must email corinnemariep@hotmail.com for more information.
