More About Shih Tzu 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.

      Breed: Boston Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boston Terrier (short coat). Jaxson is a delightfully well behaved Boston terrier boy rescued from a high kill shelter just in the nick of time. Jaxson is friendly to everyone he meets, very smart and affectionate. Jaxson is one of those rare Boston terriers that was born with a tail. We think it gives him character! Jaxson is being fostered with other dogs, and does well meeting new people. Jaxson is very smart and has a funny Boston personality. We had him examined by our vet, fully vaccinated, neutered and chipped. We had a fatty growth(lipoma) removed by our vet as well. He is a healthy 8 yr old, 20 lb boy! Jaxson isn't a barker and is fairly quiet. He walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car. His only bad habit is that he will eat any food left within his reach. This is common for dogs who had to scavenge for every scrap of food to survive on the streets. This usually goes away once they learn they will never be hungry again. Jaxson is otherwise a turnkey dog and would be perfect for anyone looking for an amazing companion who doesn't have the time to train a new dog. If you'd like to meet Jaxson, please complete our adoption application found on dexterfoundation.com We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $250

      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) (medium coat). Oliver is a gorgeous young dog looking for a new home. He is very sweet and loving, house trained and well behaved. Oliver is about a year old, healthy, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Oliver can be shy meeting new people, but give him a chance and he'll warm up and be very loving and devoted.
