Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Jan is somewhat shy, takes time to trust, but once he does you will have the most loyal loving companion. When Jan first came to us, he wouldn't even come out of his kennel... then as time went on, Jan began to realize he could trust, he could go out for a walk without being afraid, and he could be happy playing in the play yard. Jans past is behind him, and now he deserves a loving future. He would do great if there is another dog in the home to be his buddy, to show him the "ropes" and to snuggle and play with. Jan just needs time and patience... if you are willing to give that to him, you will have a loving boy in time, that will truly be a loyal companion. go to pawscrossedny.org to fill out our dog adoption application.

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.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dalmatian / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. S'Mores is a mini little tank. She loves to go around in circles to catch her tail. Best part is that she knows enough to stop and go round the other way to unwind herself! S'Mores can be hesitant with strangers but once she knows you she can never get enough of you. It would be best if you could spend some time getting to know her and experience her fun quirkiness. S'Mores would do best with an experienced, strong owner who can give her all the attention she desires!

He is looking for an experienced owner that is patient and understanding. A little about him from his favorite volunteer: Jasper is a gentleman. He is good on a leash, takes treats softly, loves people and enjoys tender back scratches. His is generally mellow and patient, but always up for fun - his face lights up when it is his turn to go out. This devoted companion loves long brisk walks, calmly exploring along the way. He could benefit from regular exercise to lose a pound or two. He also enjoys just relaxing with his favorite people.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Barry is a dog who will be your friend for life once he gets to know you. He loves to play and will show you his agility by jumping for a Frisbee or tennis ball & then will sit right next to you when he's tired & just wants some affection or a treat. He also loves going in any kind of water whether it be a pool or a stream & will gladly jump right in anytime. He would require an experienced dog handler. His main issue is an excitability problem. When he sees something that gets him excited for whatever reason (dog, cat, truck, and car) he will redirect on the person walking him or whatever is near him out of frustration. So he needs someone with the time and patience to work with him on this. The Shelter software sytstem requires that we choose a predominant bree or breed mix for our dogs.
