More About Greyhound 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.

He loves to play with the squeeky toys and loves his walks. He loves his walks with our volunteers, but also loves to snuggle with his humans. He is gentle, playful and loving. Kaia just wants to be with you. He would love a home with a securely 6 foot fenced yard. Kaia has done fine meeting kids when out and about, but has not lived with them. We think that teenage boys were not kind to Kaia in his past, so a home without teenage boys would be best. Kaia has met dogs when out and about, but has not lived with them. Kaia came to us from the UAE and lived in a foster home as an only dog, so he already knows the ropes about living in a home.

He is a happy soul and loves to lean. Everything new is interesting and warrants inspection by Runt. He can be a little nervous about new or loud things, so will need a gentle, calm leader. Runt broke a leg racing. It is healed now and he moves around just fine, but if you are looking for a hiking partner another dog would be a better match. Runt did well in our small dog and cat testing, but his interest in all things new warrants some caution. He will likely do best in a home with a fenced yard. He is eager to please, so a home who can guide and focus him, and provide the leadership he needs will be best.
