Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). Caffrey is a sweet older gentleman (born in 2004) who doesn't act his age. Even though he's recovering from knee surgery, he would walk and play with you all day if he could. Caffrey is picky with his dog friends, but he loves every person he meets, and always walks right up to greet them. This smart guy will make someone a fantastic walking buddy, but he'd love to indulge in some mellow lounging too. As part of our Single* pets adoption special, Caffrey qualifies for free adoption and a free flight to his new home! *Single pets do best as the only pet in the home.

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.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Chinese Shar-Pei / Mixed (short coat). She could either be totally attentive or daydreaming. Who can tell by those ears? Actually, Joy offers the best of both worlds! Her attentive side is eager to please people. She already knows sit, stay, down and come. All she wants in return are love and tummy rubs, which bring us to - her dreamy side! Those belly scratches send her right into a fantasy world. Those eyes are usually laser-focused, but you can just see her zone out under the spell of your touch. Her dreams are filled with wishes for love and belly rubs from a person of her very own. Joy has Babesia, a blood disorder usually picked up from a tick bite. Because it can be transmitted among dogs, Joy must be an only child. But she's ready and willing to give you as much love as an entire pack! Born in 2006, this smart, outgoing gal also loves to run and play. Everyone needs more joy in their life; how about bringing this Joy into yours? Joy has a generous sponsor who will pay for the transportation costs to her new home. This dog is featured as part of our BLISS (Behavior Lifelong In-home Support System) Program. Through this program, you will receive pre- and post-adoption training advice from one of our behavior consultants, as well as a training plan specifically tailored to the dog's transition into your home.

Shocky can be a handful, but she's full of fun and joy, and she just needs someone to share it all with!Shocky really needs some stability in life, too. She was rescued in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as a little puppy. Somebody adopted her immediately, and then gave her up!

She needs a really dog-savvy handler to keep her from redirecting or snapping in stressful situations.She loves to be petted and cuddled, but not on her hips, which are starting to hurt these days. Shocky knows " sit? and she comes when you call her. She can be a little hit-or-miss with other dogs. But she's a happy girl who needs some stability, and who really needs a place she can finally call home.Shocky is part of our Single Pets* program!

And since he loves exercise and he's intelligent, he'd be great at learning tricks. He gets very excited when he sees people he knows. He enjoys car rides, giving kisses, and spending time with his favorite people. He would prefer to be an only dog in a home that has a tall fence, as he has the ability to jump very high. If you have those accommodations, Tiki would love for you to be his favorite person.Tiki is part of our Single Pets* program!

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog (short coat). Avon is a very athletic dog who loves doing agility. She also enjoys playing with other dogs here at the Sanctuary.When it comes to people, Avon is a little more reserved. She is shy and fearful with strangers and used to do a " muzzle punch? when she got really scared. Now that she's gained some confidence, she no longer does that, and she has made a lot of progress meeting new people. It still takes time, a few walks and lots of treats before she is totally comfortable with someone. Once she is, she loves attention and really enjoys belly rubs.Avon was born in 2008. She used to be reactive on a leash, but Dogtown trainers and caregivers have helped her to overcome that challenge as well. Still, Avon will need a person or a family who will remind her about her manners now and again. She also has a delicate digestive system; she's had part of her intestines removed, so she needs medication and a food that won't hurt her tummy.This sensitive girl just wants someone special to make her feel safe. Could that person be you?

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). *SANCTUARY VISIT REQUIRED* It takes Chaplin a little while to get comfortable around new people, but once he does, he will show his silly, goofy side. He has an adorable face, very expressive ears, and is a bit of a ham. He's the perfect travel buddy, as he loves to sit next to you and relax in the car. Chaplin has some difficulty with handling, especially when it comes to medical exams. He can be anxious in new situations, and storms scare him. Chaplin does not do well with cats or small dogs, but is okay with dogs his size so long as they give him his space when he is feeling uncomfortable. Chaplin was born in 2008, and is looking for a home with a patient and understanding person. He'd love to jump in the car with you and go anywhere you go.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). When Kenya sees someone she knows, she does a happy dance, wiggling around and folding her body in half. Then she'll sit at your feet and ask to be petted. Born in 2006, Kenya came to the sanctuary from a Utah shelter. Here at the sanctuary in Kanab, she and her trainers have been working hard on some behavior issues. Although she is calm and friendly when meeting people on a leash, she is protective of barriers and can seem a bit fierce on the other side of a fence or gate. She has bitten before, so she needs a very understanding person who is willing to work with her on her barrier issues. Although she loves to play with toys and with people, she does not get along with other dogs, so she would do best as an only pet.Kenya is looking for a home with a dog-savvy person (or people) who can see her potential and will continue to work with her. She would be thrilled to meet you if you think she might be a good fit!Kenya is part of our Single Pets* program!
