Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Grannie is a wonderful girl, about 10 yrs. No issues. She has been there, done that. All she would like is to be your best friend. A cozy place to rest, and for a family to love. A note from Gracie's (Granny) foster family: "We've had Gracie (Granny) for a few days now! She is very happy with our other 3 dogs. She is playful with our puppies, and very calm with our 14 year old poodle. She loves to get up next to us and chew on her bones! Gracie is the perfect dog for someone who wants a companion that is already house broken and can interact well with other dogs of all ages! She is one sweet girl!" If you are looking for a companion, Gracie is your girl. She loves to be with you, like in the same room with you, but not necessarily in your lap all the time. She is potty trained and paper trained. She is on a great schedule- she eats in the morning and again late afternoon, and eats approximately 1 cup of food per day. She doesn't bark, a first for me, but this sweet girl does not bark. She will whimper or make a little sound if she needs something, but she does not bark.

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.
