More About German Shepherd Dog 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: Chow Chow-Golden Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Golden Retriever / Mixed. in long term fostercare Chili is the most adorable and funniest 8 year old boy you will ever meet. He offers a big grin and flops over for a tummy rub when you return home. All he wants is to be next to you wherever you are, lying at your feet or nestled next to you on the sofa with his head in your lap. He loves going for walks and several a day would be heaven for him. Chili really needs a front yard where he can watch the street and watch your going and coming also. He’s a chow and attaches deeply to his people so will need to be integrated into another home. He’s never been around children but seems ok with small dogs and cats. His preference seems to be other chows dogs who just ignore him and seems to do well with two or three other dogs. Because of his need to be integrated into a new home we need an adopter who is willing to come and visit with him and walk him a few times a week at his foster home by Grossmont Center in La Mesa. If you would like to meet him please complete an adoption application on our website. www.happyheartsgsr.org

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Booker is a sweet, gentle soul with a heart that wants only to please. He can be mischievous and playful or serious and watchful of his people. He is such a good boy with no bad habits we have been able to detect. Occasionally he’ll hop up onto the sofa and get comfy but scoot off immediately when he hears someone coming. This is a remnant from his past as we don’t care if he wants to be on the sofa. He gets along with the other dogs in his pack and goes to doggie day care but prefers a quiet environment where he can just chill. He might do very well as a jogging partner as he is energetic and loves to play. He is a velcro dog and will want to be by your side. He seems ok with cats and small dogs. We don’t have any children so don’t know how he’d be. He’s about 65 - 70 lbs. with medium energy.

He is an active boy who needs his exercise and would be great on family hikes or learning to jog along side of you. He loves people and car rides and wants to go anywhere you do.

He exudes a rugged charm and vulnerability that is both endearing and touching. He has had a difficult life as a yard dog without sufficient socialization or training either with other dogs or in a home and he is ready to move on and eager to learn how to behave.
