Daphne, who we believe is about 2 years old and a beagle/retriever mix, is a quiet and easygoing pup who would be a great low-key companion. Our "Daffy Dog" gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home, but doesn't care much about play- she's pleased just to hang out with her human.

More About Labrador Retriever 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 does well with other dogs and cats, but can be a bit stingy with his toys around other dogs (never with people). He needs a child-free home, but would make a wonderful addition to a low-key family willing to provide structure and love. Breed experience requested! He would love to meet you!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Meet Maverick! Maverick is a shy boy who takes a while to warm up to new people, and can be a little nervous. Once he warms up to you, he is pretty easy-going and likes to lounge around the house or go for walks outside (where he will sniff everything!). He isn't super into playing with dogs, but doesn't mind if they're around as long as they don't have a lot of crazy energy. He is house trained, and is learning to walk on a leash. We aren't quite sure what Maverick went through before ending up in the shelter, but he gets very scared of new and unfamiliar situations. He also is more fearful of men than women in general. Since he startles easily and has a few behavioral quirks, we are looking for an adopter who has experience with dogs and who is in a calmer household. We think that with a structured and loving home he'll gain confidence and start to come out of his shell. Maverick is about 35 pounds and is a young adult dog (2-5 years old). He is heartworm positive, and is currently undergoing treatment for heartworms. Maverick is available through our foster-to-adopt program while he finishes heartworm treatment.

      Posted Breed: Treeing Walker Coonhound / Mixed. Hi, I'm Jake! I'm a 3-year old male Treeing Walker Coonhound looking for my forever home. I was found as a very skinny stray and taken to a local shelter before being rescued with HAR. I'm sweet and gentle, but I can be punchy and energetic too, and I know I will be your closest companion. I enjoy napping, cuddling, exploring, and walking on a leash. I also love meeting new humans at the dog park or coffee shop. They always tell me I have such good manners! I never bark and I don't jump on people. I'm gentle with kids and keep my cool around other dogs as well. I am even house-trained and crate-trained! Sometimes I get excited about food and have to be reminded to keep four paws on the floor, but I'm working on that with my foster parents. I learned my new name quickly and I can also "come" when called. I am very food-motivated and I would love to learn new commands and tricks with your help! They tell me I need to gain weight and I do have a few scrapes from my wild days that are healing well. I'll be back to perfect health in no time I'm sure. My tail is always wagging and I can't wait to meet you! Let's be friends forever!!

She is fully trained to walk by your side, sit, down, stay, recall, and shake. Kodi gets so excited to bounce around outside and play with her foster dad. She loves to do sprints and recalls, but she's not a fan of long distance runs. Give Kodi a plush squeaky toy and you will make this girl even happier. She will carry it around and squeak it just for fun. Kodi currently lives with her foster family and her four-legged foster brother, Blu. Kodi does not mind being around Blu, but does not care for playing with dogs. She is very gentle natured and needs time and patience to gain trust within a calm environment. Kodi will need a home with no kids.This is because of the need to have behavior conscious interactions. She needs an experienced owner that will strongly advocate for her needs and give her the right guidance to keep her stress free. Give Kodi personal attention and patience and you will see what makes her so great to be around.

      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Check out my ears! Aren’t they awesome?! I can hear all sorts of stuff. I’ve even heard people mentioning these ‘forever homes’. I hope to find mine very soon! My foster parents have been calling me Nina and they say I’m a loveable two-year-old terrier mix and weigh around 50 pounds. I love playing with my foster parents and new fur-sisters. My foster sisters and I get along great. We share all kinds of cool toys and snuggle at night! They’ve been teaching me new tricks and they let me know that I’m a quick learner. My foster parents are always bragging about me and giving me compliments. This makes me super happy, because I have lots of love to give and I can’t stop smiling! Admittedly, I might be a little bit of a people-pleaser, but I’m also very independent. I love to be outside and occupy myself in my new fenced-in yard. But there’s a big world to explore so I’m polishing my leash skills. I would love to meet you. I’m a little shy around new people, but I know we’ll be friends in no time.
