More About Bulldog 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.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Kona is a very energetic and active 9 month old female bulldog mix. She was turned in by her owner because they couldn't give her the time and attention she needed, so there is no stray hold on her. Kona loves to run and play, and she loves toys. She seems to be a sociable young girl and she is attentive and affectionate. Physically, she is not the most beautiful girl you will ever see, but she has a precious personality and a sweet temperament. And if I were a betting man, I would place all of my chips on her being a night-time snuggler. Kona is ready to go to her new forever home.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Molly Maker -- Sweet little Molly Maker was surrendered to the shelter by her owner. This little girl deserves a break...a chance to live happily and content in a loving, forever home of her own. Molly was turned in to the shelter along with a number of other dogs, and she has mothered numerous litters of puppies of her own. Even though the owner stated that she could be temperamental at times, when she was with me, she was just as sweet as she could be and seemed to want nothing more than to be treated with affection and gentle understanding. These photos are typical of her behavior during the time I was with her. She was sweet, attentive, and patient. Please, when you're browsing through our album of available dogs, or visiting the shelter in search of your new best friend, don't overlook our older babies who have become homeless through no faults of their own. They need loving homes, too. To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog

      Breed: Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Joyner loves chicken nuggets from that place with the golden arches and good coffee. This handsome big boy was turned in to the shelter by his owner through no fault of his own. His owner stated that "He only wants to be loved. He is not an angry or aggressive dog at all." He is a large boy, though, and he is very active and energetic, so he might not be the best fit as a companion/pet for a small child or an elderly or infirm person. There is no stray hold on this sweet big guy, so he is available for immediate adoption. To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog

      Breed: Golden Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Mixed. Winnie is back! This precious, gentle older girl has been in the shelter before. This time, she was left in one of the outside kennels after normal shelter hours, so she is on file as a stray. If she is not reclaimed, she will be made available for adoption. Winnie loves to be close to someone, and loves affection and being petted. Winnie is an old soul with a gentle, loving, timeless spirit, whose warm eyes radiate friendliness and charm. Winnie is simply precious. Why not come by the shelter and pay her and the other dogs a visit? There is a very therapeutic reward to be had by visiting these dogs and giving them treats or a gentle, loving touch. The most love some of these dogs ever experience in their entire lives is at the hands (and from the hearts) of the shelter staff and visitors.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed (short coat). FoxTrot -- This is FoxTrot, a handsome male border collie mix who was brought to the shelter as one of >40 neglected dogs from a very unfortunate hoarding situation. This sweet boy is terrified in the shelter, as were so many of his companions who were brought in with him. Most of the others have thankfully found either foster homes or permanent adoptive homes, but Fox Trot is still awaiting his first ever real home. He is sad, and frightened, but he is not aggressive. He will allow you to pet him, but his fear prevents him from approaching you. The look in his eyes and his body language show the fear, but they also seem to reflect a real desire to be loved. Fox Trot needs a loving but qualified family, but that family needs to understand that this baby is special, and he needs to be treated with patience, kindness, understanding, compassion.....and lots and lots of love. He is classified as an OTI, so there is no stray hold to delay him To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog

      Penelope

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Penelope was surrendered to the shelter by her owner along with her companion, Charlene, with whom she is very tightly bonded. Penelope and Charlene are terrier mixes, and are fully mature. Both of these girls are absolutely terrified in the shelter, but the owner says they are both very sweet. They cower and try to keep as much distance as possible between them and anyone who approaches them, but they don't appear aggressive as a result of their fear, and when approached cautiously and patiently they will hesitantly submit to being petted. I spent a bit of time with them and was eventually able to pet them. I didn't see any sign of aggression during the time I was with them, but they do need to be approached and cared for very carefully and with patience and understanding, until they adjust to new surroundings. It has to have been very traumatic for them to have been given up by the only family they have ever known. These two girls each have a lot of potential to become loving and loyal pets and companions if they are given the opportunity to overcome their fears. There are precious, sweet, loving souls hiding beneath the fearful appearance and temporary scared behavior of these little girls. For more information regarding Charlene and Penelope, please call the shelter at (256)771-7889. To fill out an adoption application, go to http://limestonepets.org/website/adoptApp.php?species=Dog
