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.

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund-Italian Greyhound Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Italian Greyhound / Mixed (short coat). I weigh 21 lbs Brynn has to go into an adult only home, no children and she has to be the only pet in the house. She is a bit of a special case in that she is not the best with people when she first meets them. Once she gets to know you she is so fun and sweet. She is a volunteer favorite. She just needs someone to give her the chance and time to warm up and get to know you. Here is a write up from a volunteer -- WHEN BRYNN FIRST ARRIVED AT AHS WE THOUGHT THAT SHE WAS TIMID AND SHY. BUT NOW THAT SHE HAS REALIZED THAT THIS IS A GOOD, SAFE PLACE- HER PERSONALITY HAS JUST BLOSSOMED. THIS BEAUTIFUL, BRINDLE-GIRL IS FULL OF DELIGHTFUL SURPRISES. BRYNN LOVES TO BE OUTSIDE AND SIMPLY JUST DESIRES YOUR COMPANY. SHE IS A LITTLE NUT WITH TOYS AND WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH WHILE YOU WATCH HER PLAY. IF YOU SIT DOWN ON THE GROUND SHE WILL COME RUNNING OVER AND DRAMATICALLY THROW HERSELF UPSIDE DOWN IN YOUR LAP BECAUSE SHE WANTS YOU TO GIVE HER LOTS OF BELLY RUBS. SHE WILL EVEN SNEAK YOU A SWEET LITTLE KISS NOW AND THEN. BRYNN PLAYS WELL WITH OTHER DOGS HER SIZE AND IS JUST A PLEASURE TO BE AROUND. THIS SWEET, CUTIE-PIE IS WAITING FOR A HOME OF HER OWN AND WILL FILL YOU WITH JOY IN RETURN. She never messes in her cage and is a breeze to walk-no pulling etc. She needs a warm lap to cuddle. I am available for long term fostering. Please look at our Foster A Pet Page for more information! Adoption Donation: $100. All dogs are neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested, current on all vaccines- including rabies, dewormed and on Heartgard Plus & Frontline Plus every month to prevent fleas, ticks and heartworm. Brynn has to go into an adult only home, no children and she has to be the only pet in the house.

We do not have a history on most of the animals up for adoption since we rescue them Animal Control and they are usually labeled as strays. We can only tell you their behavior since they have been with us. We do not know the specific breeds of each dog. Once again, because they are rescued we have to guess as to what they MAY be a mix of.
