Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. During a thunderstorm, a man took cover at a Wal-Mart. As he stood waiting for the storm to pass, he witnessed a black SUV throw a puppy out of the moving car into the parking lot of the store. The man immediately went out to help the puppy and was able to get the license plate of the car. He took the puppy home and found her to be a loving, sweet girl. Unfortunately, he was leaving town the next day on business and asked a volunteer of Our Pal’s Place for assistance. Even though our mission is to save animals from death in county shelters, we also want to help people who are doing the right thing for the animals! We agreed to take Sunnie and were amazed at how smart and loving this little girl was given all that she had experienced. We adopted Sunnie into a home where she flourished for over 2 years. Sunnie took her role in the family as protector more serious than what the family desired so they returned her. Sunnie is heartbroken to say the least. She was only doing her job and has no idea what she did "wrong". This behavior can be modified when Sunnie goes into her next home by working a specific protocol of making strangers "good" from the beginning. Sunnie is a loving little girl who merely aims to please. She will do well in an adult only home or with a family that has older kids.

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.
