    Free dogs can be found easily from a number of different sources. It is possible to get dogs for free due to different reasons. It is not always necessary to pay for a dog. See the following guide about getting a free dog.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Online
    There can be a variety of reasons why private advertisers wish to give their dogs for free. Some may have new puppies that they cannot look after themselves, whilst others may have a change in living situation which has meant they are not capable of keeping their dog anymore. The ages of free dogs can vary too, depending on the owner’s situation.

    Finding a free dog online is very simple. Visit the free dogs section on Dogs and Puppies and browse through the selection. Whether you are after free small dogs or adult ones, there should be a wide variety online. View the ads, their descriptions and their photos to see what will suit you the most. Contact the advertiser and set up a meet. Visit the dogs for free at their home. Always make certain that the puppy has been looked after properly and check if it has been vaccinated.

    Rescue Dogs
    Dog shelters or charities have a large number of dogs for free that need housing. Visit your local dog shelter for free small dogs, as well as adult dogs. It is vital to remember that adopting a rescue dog is entirely different than buying a dog that has been bred just to be sold. Rescue dogs come from all sorts of different backgrounds, and therefore their behaviour may be challenging at first. Many of the rescue dogs will have been abused or neglected in the past, which makes it much harder for them to trust a new owner.

    Animal shelters will need to check that you are suitable and ready to house one of their free dogs first. Remember that some shelters may charge a small fee for vaccinating and microchipping. This is something that you will have to get done anyway so it can still be considered a free dog.
