Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Dear Forever Person/Persons, I know you've been looking for me, and I've been looking for you!! I've got my bag packed and I'm ready to come home! I even put on a fancy good luck tie just hoping it might help us find each other :) . I'm Jerry a healthy short-hair Chi mix! I love to sleep under the covers with you, and love taking walks! I require a special diet but goodness knows, I love to eat! I currently live with a bunny and we both like carrots! I am also good with dogs and cats. I weigh about 12 lbs, and best guess is that I'm around 10-12 years old - don't let my age make you question me though - I've got plenty of spunk and years left - you'll see! Even though I'm so excited to meet you, come home, and love you, I just ask for a little patience - moving from my foster to forever home could just take me a minute to get used to. I'm ready and excited to meet you, forever person! I love you already! See you soon!

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.

      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Terrier. Hi! My name is Ollie, I am a 6 Yr. old and 23 Lb Poodle/Terrier mix. I am house trained and I would prefer to be the only dog in the house. I am a love bug but I can also be quite cautious so I will do best in a home without children and lots of activity. I enjoy daily walks and I love to play with toys. I don't like the crate so I can't be left alone for long hours in a crate. I'm very loving and loyal once I feel secure and I can be a little territorial with my toys and food. I would love to have a fenced secure yard so I can run a little free and wouldn't do well in an apartment or a home with no fenced yard. I'm a bit of an escape artist so a fenced yard will keep me secure. I'm looking for some stability so I don't have to worry so much anymore and will give you lots of love and snuggles in return for patience and kindness.

      Breed: Mutt

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (unknown type) / Mixed. Meet adorable Sugar! This sweet girl has been though a very rough start to her life, but that is behind her now! Sugar (previously known as Hope) was found as a stray with abscessed mammary tumors. She is a young dog maybe 2 years old, so very young for tumors. Most likely she was used for breeding and her pups were taken too earlier from her and her milk ducts developed cysts and they in turn developed into cancerous tumors due to the extra estrogen in her body for produ cing milk. She had the tumors successfully removed. She also had eye infections. When she came to the sanctuary after surgery she was very scared and in pain as you can well imagine. She would growl and snap. When she recovered from her fear and surgery we brought her to her loving and calm foster home where she has blossomed into an affectionate playful dog. Sugar has a foster cat and dog she lives with. She pretty much ignores the cat but can vie for attention with the resident dog. Sugar has a spa day scheduled and one more vet appointment to check her eyes and post surgery recovery. Sugar is now taking applications! Sugar is 12 pounds and 2 years old and would do best in a quiet home with no small children. She would love to be the center of attention as the only dog. She loves to play fetch and tug of war with her toys! She gives the best kisses too. Sugar will need a family that understands all she has been through. This young girl is ready to know unconditional love. ❤️ Every Underdog has been spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and is up to date on vaccinations. All dogs have had a recent visit to the vet as well.

His sparkling personality shows he was very loved and had an owner that spent time raising Scotty to be a great dog. Scotty would love to show you his tricks including dancing for his treats. Is okay with Cats and likes other dogs. Estimated to be approximately 6 years old. He is ready to start the next chapter of his life. He would do best in a house with older children.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Husky / Mixed. Is it your Lucky day? Hi my name is Lucky. I’m a handsome 4 year old Lab, Husky and probably a few other things thrown in for good measure. I have the lab look though all packed into an adorable compact 50lb body. I’m not a huge fan of playing with toys inside but sometimes I will humor you, outside. If you throw a ball for me I will chase it. I am house trained and working on basic training now. I am doing well with sit and down and I am very polite (even if a tad stubborn at times). I love to greet people vocally and kind of sound like an old human fellow when I do. I’ll sing you a song when you wake me in the morning and enjoy a chat over breakfast. I try hard to talk human for you if you aren’t quickly picking up what I’m putting down or I’m just so excited for you to hear my tales. I love to follow scent trails and find critters in the woods. If you have critters in the house I am likely to search them out too. So, my foster mom tells me it’s best if I find a forever home without small animals (cats, chickens, ect). I like the dog I’m staying with though, and another dog would probably be ok. I need lots of exercise, and room to explore in a well supervised/secured area. If you love to run, hike, explore and snuggle, I’d love to meet you.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Patterdale Terrier (Fell Terrier) / Mixed. Biscuit and Dumpling are a shy but sweet mother-daughter bonded pair. Dumpling is an adorable Doxie/Patterdale Terrier mix while Biscuit seems to have some black lab in her as well. Both are 25-30 pounds. Biscuit is 2 years old and Dumpling is around 5 years old. They likely didn’t have many positive early experiences with people, and as a result, are very wary of anyone new. They take a long time to trust but eventually bond strongly with their identified person. While Dumpling in particular is still wary of being touched, both girls will greet you with wagging tails and wiggly bodies. They have made slow but steady progress in their foster home and they love to be near their foster mama. They will need to be adopted together, and would do best in a one or two person home (no young children) with access to a secure fenced yard. They would do well with another mellow dog and would likely be fine with cats. Biscuit needs twice daily eye medication for dry eye . She is very easy to apply her eye medication. They are looking for a home that will love them for who they are and continue to provide them with gentle encou ragement and training. Both dogs are house trained and crate trained! Every Underdog has been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, flea/tick treated, de-wormed, and received rabies, bordetella and distemper/parvo vaccines. All dogs have had a recent visit to the vet as well. Adoption fee for the pair is $525 We offer a 10% discount for seniors, veterans and students. All of our dogs are in foster homes.
