Posted Breed: Dalmatian / Mixed (short coat). Sweet, well-mannered gal looking for loving family, loads of attention and permanent home! Our Dottie girl was rescued from a shelter after her family surrendered her there. Dottie is very well mannered, walks wonderfully on a leash, and just has a very sweet, mild temperament about her. She enjoys romping around the yard or snuggling on the couch. While Dottie was initially very uncomfortable with other dogs we have done a lot of work with her and now she enjoys and plays with the other dogs in her foster home. She would be a good companion for a dog-friendly dog who needs a fun buddy or she could be an only dog who gets all the love and attention. Dottie is a dog who gets a little nervous in new environments and situations so she needs encouragement and patience to help boost her confidence. She is often overlooked at adoption events because of this but if you could see how fun-loving and confident this girl is at home, you'd think she was a completely different dog! Dottie has met calm, respectful children at adoption events and did well with them. We will not place her in a home with young children, however, because of her nervous temperament. This girl is truly an amazing dog and a favorite of our volunteers. If you're looking for a calm, well mannered, super sweet girl then Dottie is a super good catch! Placement Needs: Placed either as an only dog or with a very dog-friendly dog who likes to play Needs home without children under the age of 6 How To Adopt Me: Step 1: First, p lease be sure you have read this pet's entire description in order to decide whether this particular pet is a good candidate for your family. We try to include as many details as possible about each pet, including the type of placement needs and requirements they have for adoption. Step 2: Be sure to read our adoption policies and procedures before contacting us. Step 3: E-mail us to request an adoption application and/or inquire about this pet.

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.
