Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (medium coat). ​Hi, I'm Simon. I'm a 5-6 year old chocolate Labrador Retriever. I was abandoned at the shelter in New Mexico in a rural area. I love to retrieve things -- shocking, I know! OutPaws has discovered that at some point in my young life, I suffered a broken back. It's all healed and doesn't cause me any problems, but my adopter should be willing to keep me on some anti-inflammatories and some supplements to help me as I age. Because of my injuries and being out fending for myself, I'm not great with other dogs as I feel defensive and like I may need to protect myself. I'd probably do best in an only dog home, but could learn to do okay with one other calm, disinterested and older buddy. I'm a lover with people and will steal your heart the moment you meet me. I'm just a typical loyal, playful, fun Lab! If you think you might be my forever family, apply online at www.OutPaws.org/adopt

More About Labrador Retriever 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.

You see, we didn't really have a chance to have a life in the Bahamas and probably wouldn't have made it out of the shelter. We're so excited to see the mountains and learn to hike and go for long walks. I'm a good girl, about 4 months old, and I'm social and fun.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi, I'm Bellamy and I am THE HAPPIEST dog in the world. Do you like to wake up slowly to smooshy-faced kisses over a cup of coffee and Good Morning, America? If so, I'm your man! I'm quite a snuggler and love to give big huge Pit Bull hugs. I've never met a stranger. I'm also great at entertaining you while I entertain myself. Foster mom just loves when I run zoomies up and down the stairs tossing my toys to myself. I completed a Canine Good Citizen class with my foster mom and got a certificate! It was fun and I love to focus on my human and show you what I can do. I've been through some rough times and at one point broke my elbow (vets say it was repeatedly) and it has grown back wrong. It has been fully evaluated, but vets think I'm not in pain and that nothing should be done to correct my occasional limp. It does not affect my ability to run, jump and play. I'm neutral with other dogs when I'm on leash, but I can get a little overly excited sometimes, so foster mom thinks it would be best if I was the only dog in the home. If you would like to meet me, please complete an online Adoption Application at www.outpaws.org/adopt.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Newfoundland Dog / Shepherd / Mixed (long coat). Hello, my name is Shrek. I'm a sweet 6 year old Potcake mix from the Humane Society of Grand Bahamas. My first couple of years on the island were pretty bad. I had an owner who neglected and abused me. One day, a tourist from Austria saw me, my brother and sister and called the shelter to see if they would take us in. They said yes, so we lived safely at the shelter for years. Unfortunately, I had suffered some type of traumatic injury where my pelvis was crushed and my femur on my hind leg was broken in two places. I received no treatment for years and so had little use of my hind end. I have now had FHO surgeries on each hip and a brace was made for my left hind leg. I'm in physical therapy two times per week learning to walk with my brace and trying to build strength in my hind legs so that I will use them more. I'll probably never be a hiker or go for lengthy walks, but OutPaws is hoping to help me reach the point where I can stand more and enjoy being in my yard and exploring.
