Posted Breed: Pug / Spaniel / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 300. Name: Brooke Age: 2 years Gender: Female Breed: Pug / Spaniel Weight: 22 lbs Dog friendly: No Cat friendly: No Kid friendly: No House trained: No Crate trained: Yes Energy level: Moderate - High History: From a shelter in Kentucky Adoption Fee: $300 From the Foster: Brooke is a very sweet little mystery mutt! She almost looks like a pug got together with a black lab ;) Brooke is a shy girl. She doesn't meet people or dogs with open arms, but give her some time and she loves other dogs! Wrestling with the resident Corgi is one of her all-time favorite activities. She is very fearful with new people, and will give a growl warning and lots of barking telling them them to back off. Brooke loves HER people, and while she is a fantastic little snuggler who adores foster mom and dad, she would not do well in a house with new people coming and going without further training. She does better with women than men. Brooke is still working on her house training and general manners but she's improved a whole lot! She would benefit greatly from continued socialization with people and dogs. She is a graduate of Basic Training at Twin Cities Obedience Training Club. She knows sit, touch, down, shake, wave, bow, and "relax" on her mat. She is a very fast learner, loves treat rewards, and LOVES going to school! She is also a graduate of Fetch Dog Training's class Wallflowers, for shy and fearful dogs. She has completed a Tricks class and has begun training in agility. She really loves her agility classes! As of February 2017 she has been taking these classes continuously for 3 months now. Her new forever home must commit to ongoing training... she loves learning, and it does her so much good and boosts her confidence in regards to strange people and strange dogs. She still has a way to go being comfortable with strangers, but she is making so much progress. Brooke loves toys, chewing on bones, and all sorts of fun things! She is crate trained and being crated when left alone is important so that she doesn't get into any trouble. She is very food and toy motivated so with lots of positive reinforcement she is a quick learner! She is very agile, and can leap from couch to chair and back with ease... got a coffee table? She might hop on that as a pit stop along the way! Brooke is very alert to all goings-on outside of the home and is a very vocal dog. She will alert to strangers and other dogs outside the fence or window. She would not do well in a living situation with shared walls. If you're looking for a young adult dog who is ready to learn and you are patient with love to give, Brooke is ready to grow with you and learn how to be the best little girl she can be! Experienced adopters only please!!!! If you are interested in meeting her please fill out an application today!

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.
