Additional Information
Was the Dog Found No

Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). A former adopter contacted one of our volunteers to say they witnessed a dog being hit by a car during a thunderstorm. Volunteers went out and found Remi under a bush in a great deal of pain. Hoping the dog was chipped and an owner looking for her, ART transported her to the emergency vet and tried without success to find her people. No one came forward so ART located a foster home and began to address her medical needs. She had a dislocated elbow on her right front leg and a dislocated hip on her back left leg. She had undergone two surgeries and some extensive physical therapy and is now looking for her forever home. She is great with other dogs and women but is a little uncertain of men and she will need a little time to warm up. Remi is a very sweet and loyal dog and would make a great companion for a patient and calm household.

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.
