    Getting dogs for free can be done fairly easily, as long as you know how to go about it. There are different reasons why someone would want to give there dogs for free. Whether an owner has had a large number of puppies that they cannot care for, or they have had to give up their adult dog for personal circumstances, you will find free dogs. This guide gives information on getting a free dog.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Online
    There can be a variety of reasons why private advertisers wish to give away 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 depending on the owner’s situation.

    Finding a free dog online is very easy. Whether you are after free small dogs or adult ones, there should be a wide variety online. Visit the free dogs section of a site and browse through the selection. View the ads, their descriptions and their photos to see what will suit you the most. Contact the advertiser and set up a meet and 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. 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 will be challenging at first. Training a free dog adopted in this way will require a different focus. 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.
