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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Black Mouth Cur / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. I am a very sweet and beautiful girl! I like to play with my toys and if you don't close your sock drawer all the way I love to play a game I invented called "Empty The Sock Drawer". Maybe I can show you how to play sometime? I have ALOT of energy that foster Mom helps me get out with a backpack! I have a VERY important job of "plant watering expert" because I carry bags with water in my backpack to help feed all the thirsty plants along the paths! I'm kinda important like that. I like to meet new friends too! I make friends wherever I go whether it's the dog park, the pet store or just running along with my foster Mom! On rainy days I get to borrow my foster sisters rain jacket and after we go for walkies I get to do the TREADMILL! I am also the BEST CUDDLER EVER. Seriously. I should get an award. I'm THAT good at cuddling. I like to give kisses and crawl all over you if you try to take a nap too! I'm a pretty quiet gal except when I want to play and my sister wants to take nap. I don't enjoy the kennel but I'll go in if you insist. I can be a little skittish with new people so I need somebody who is patient and will help me work through my insecurities. Do you like cuddles and kisses? If you do then we will be a great match! Call me sometime! (And by call me I mean e-mail my foster Mom) Love, Treasure (aka Luv Puppy)

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact McNeely for more information about this pet. Lucy is a sweet mama dog that had 9 babies in MCAS and was doing the best that she could in a stressful situation. Lucy is/was a great mama to her puppies and passes that watchful eye and protecting nature on the other dogs in her pack too. She feels that all the dogs around her are hers to watch out for and take care of -- she is very protective. This protective quality also extends to her/your home - she will help keep strangers out. In her down time Lucy is just a big couch potato who loves hanging out with her people and chilling. I do not know what her life was like before the shelter but I believe it was pretty rough. One look in her eyes and you can tell that for yourself - she has one eye that is a little cloudy and that slightly affects her vision but it does not slow her down! Lucy is house trained and dog door trained. She is heartworm negative and up to date on all her shots. She is not so great on a leash and pulls especially when she wants something. She knows sit but that is about as far as her knowledge of commands go. Cat - well they are just toys that run right? Seriously, she likes to follow the cat and if the cat runs she will chase but she has not tried to harm her once. It is just the running that catches her attention.

      Breed: Border Collie-Great Pyrenees Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Great Pyrenees / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Brief Story: Patch was found around Sendera Ranch Drive, Magnolia, TX. Neighbors were trying to catch him for weeks. We volunteered to give him a temp home (foster) until we could find the owners or a forever home, because it is not in our plan to have any pets at this moment. After a month of posting flyers on stores and social media, and nobody claimed him, this sweet dog looked abandoned :'( We hope to find a family for Patch that will love and treat him like a family member, take care of him and will give him a forever home. Patch is a protector dog, will bark or growl when someone unfamiliar comes to the house. He is shy and reserve with strangers, but he will warm up after that person is being introduced a few times giving him some treats until he gets to know you. He is the sweetest and loving dog. Patch is house trained, he will whimper when needs go to the bathroom, he does not chew or jump on furniture. Patch is very smart and obedient, he understand some commands and if you raise your voice we will know he did something wrong. Likes: Patch loves to go for a ride or a walk (he will swim, if you let him) and behave well on a leash but sometimes gets over excited when another dog approaches, because his protective personality. He loves attention, he will follow you around the house and be by your side if possible. He loves to be brushed and petted by his owners. He is more indoors when is too hot outside, but enjoys to be outside in the mornings or when the weather is nice and cold. He loves treats on top of his crunchy food. Dislikes: He does not like to be petted by strangers. He does not like to go in a kennel (crate). He does not like to be alone for extended period of time. He does not like dog parks.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi! I’m Sully. The vet says that I am a Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Boxer mix around 4 years old. I was lost and followed my foster mom home one day. She was nice enough to let me stay and help me find a new home. I weigh 70 lbs, I love people, kids, and dogs (even the 5lb one that keeps chewing on my ears). Most of the time I just lay around like a K9 speed bump, but I would never turn down a good game of tug-of-war! I like to play outside and love to take walks. I don’t mind being on a leash and I like to sleep in my crate at night. I love to chill on the couch. I know all the usual commands sit, stay, lay down, and shake (my favorite). I am house trained and know how to operate a doggie door. I also love to ride in the car, but I have to ride in the back seat or else the seat belt buzzer will ding! I have all my shots and take stuff for fleas, but I am HW positive. My foster mom has me on the slow kill prevention to get rid of them. I try to be really careful about taking treats from your hands, cuz I am a pretty big guy. Also, you will need to keep Doc McStuffins on speed dial if you give me stuffed toys!

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Shogun is a very sweet and good boy! He loves people, kids, and other dogs! He tries to make friends everywhere he goes. He is (literally) best friends with our other foster, Tess. You will see her in many of his pictures. He has really good dog manners and communication. He is a big derpy old lab soul! (Picture old farm dog laying by the farmer that never leaves his side.) He constantly wants to please his people. He will be your shadow and best friend, perfect for a little boy or girl to grow up with. Force free training is a must with him as he's very sensitive. He works for treats, praise, and pets! When he gets excited he Rue Rues! (see video) He doesn't bark a whole lot. When he needs to go out and potty he touches the door knob with his nose. He likes to carry the "skin" of his toys around and show them off or hopes to play tug with them. Like any lab he just enjoys carrying things around in his mouth. He enjoys a good bone or one filled with peanut butter. He enjoys the mental stimulation of boredom busters as hes smart and curious and likes to figure things out. He likes going for walks and hikes and walks best on a harness. He is ok in the car now that he knows it means going to good places, especially when Tess goes too. He would do well in any home but would be happiest with a friend to play with. He is a little food aggressive with other dogs and sometimes possessive with new bones, unless it's Tess. He just warns them they are getting too close when he's eating and that is ok. He's probably missed some meals in the past. He likes to sleep curled up in our smaller dog's dog bed. He doesn't like being up on the couch or bed. He's a really good dog. How he ended up in the shelter so long is a mystery to me.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Petrie for more information about this pet. Winnie is a sweet girl who is very attached to her person. She is very yappy if kept away from you. She is quiet when she can be with you and hangs right with you. She gets along with the other fosters and holds her ground in spite of the fact they outweigh her by about 30 pounds. Think she is housetrained but not in the house so can't be certain. She is not an outdoor dog. She wants to be able to cuddle with you and love on you and that's hard to do if you are outside. She can be a little cautious at first but doesn't take long to come around. She would make a great addition to your family!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Pembroke Welsh Corgi Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Corgi / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150.00. Please contact Petrie for more information about this pet. Angel is a very playful girl! She loves her people but needs consistency. She is almost never mouthy now but still likes to jump when excited. I think its because she is short and wants to make you see her, but she will sit when told. Someone who is firm and does not allow her to do that will have great success with this great girl. She is a Corgi mix which is a breed that likes to boss the other dogs. Not usually an issue for my other fosters. Most of the time this is a very playful group in spite of Angel's bossiness. She has beautiful eyes and is housetrained. She does great in a crate with her chew toys. She needs the toughest chew toys you can find. Since she is still chewing, I would definitely crate her when you are not home. Angel is a happy girl but needs her people's attention. She wants to curl up next to you or sit in your lap. She loves her toys and will carry them around. She always seems to be smiling. She is not good with children. Mostly because she is protective of her adult people and doesn't care for a lot of chaos. She is leash trained and rides well in the car. In fact, she loves to ride in the car. She is up-to-date on vacs and she is spayed. She is barkie/growly/protective at people she does not know, especially in a crate, but she overcomes that quickly due to her loving and playful nature, especially if given the space to come to you! She would make a great dog for the right forever family!
