Posted Breed: Shepherd / Pointer / Mixed. Personality I am a sweet shy boy who loves to be with other dogs. I play well with others. I am shy when I meet new people, but once I am comfortable with you I am very affectionate. When I warm up, I love to snuggle and be petted by you. I love hanging with my humans when I am not playing hard with my dog playmates. Loud voices scare me so I would prefer a quiet household. Socialization Does the dog like other pets? I love to play with other dogs. I am crate and dog door trained. I love to ride in the car. I love to play and wrestle with the other dogs in the house. Does the dog like children? Since loud noises scare me I would do better without children. My foster family doesn’t have any children, so I'm not used to the little ones. General Socialization Notes I would love a quiet home with someone who loves to cuddle. My foster home doesn't have any cats, so I don't know how I would handle them. Favorite Toys I play enthusiastically with my dog friends, love to chew on my bones, but I do need to work on my resource guarding. I love to rest my on dog bed or be near my humans! Forever Home I would do best in a home with a canine playmate to keep me company and be my best friend. I love to play, but I do know how to be quiet when I am in the house. I love to work for treats and am looking forward to training with my new family. I am looking to find my forever home, so please call to meet me soon.

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.
