Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed. Hi my name is Betty! I am about 14 years old but I feel 9! Actually the vet says I look really good for a lady my age. I am looking for my perfect retirement home, someplace to relax by the heater in a nice cozy bed, lay on your lap while you rub my ears and I fall asleep! Oh, and also someone to serve me meals and give me snacks. I am temporarily living in a foster home with my foster mom and canine and feline foster siblings; I am good with other dogs and cats. I love them all but want a bed of my own and people of my own! Because of my age I do have cataracts and can't see very well, but this doesn't bother me one bit... just give me a few days and I'll have the layout of your house down pat. I am house trained, but do need to go outside frequently (my bladder isn't what it used to be). Please send my foster mom an application! Any questions about me, you can email and she will be more than happy to talk to you. I am up to date on vaccines, deworming, flea prevention, and heart worm testing and prevention. I also had a recent teeth cleaning and extractions. Apply to adopt at

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.
