More About Rat-Cha 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.

History: ACO Pick up 6-30-17 Available: 7-6-17 Adoption Fee: $85.00 Notes: Unfortunately, I guess our hopes have been dashed. Sarah’s owners have not surfaced and she is getting sadder by the day. She is a great people dog and would be wonderful for a one dog home with older children. She likes to be active as long as she is with you and she settles down when you want to lounge around.

History: Stray Turn in 4-29-17 Available: Now Adoption Fee: $85.00 Notes: A lot of people are not familiar with the Feist breed of dogs. They are a lot like the Jack Russell Terriers. They are prey driven and are very active. Junior is a great young man. Nothing gets past him because he is always alert to what is going on around him. He is very playful and would make a great playmate for kids or another high-energy dog. He certainly is handsome.

She gets along with other dogs great and likes to play. She is energetic and would be perfect for a home with children. She will make your life so great you will wonder what you did to deserve her.

History: Stray Turn in 9-22-17 Available: 9-29-17 Adoption Fee: $85.00 Note: Moose came to us with Elsa. He is not as confident as Elsa but he just needs some socialization. He does not seem to have any problem with the other dogs and he was a little unsure when he and Elsa were separated but he gets over that in a few minutes. He loves people but you can see him trying to figure out why he is here. We all wish he had that perfect home.

History: Stray Turn in 8-12-17 Available: 8-18-17 Adoption Fee: $85.00 Note: I cannot figure out why this young man is still here. Hunter is still young and energetic. He is very people oriented and would work well with a family with children. He gets along well with the other dogs also. He is a little curious about the cats but soon loses interest in them. I see Hunter as one of those dogs that is some little boy’s best friend for years to come.
