If a rescue dog would be a consideration for you, then you may want to consider pet finder. You put in the locality, breed age, sex etc of the dog you would consider and it will give you a list of the dogs available for adoption. Usually these dogs have been evaluated so you know if they are food aggressive, house trained, get along with children, cats, etc before even going to see them. Many different rescues and animal societies use them to list available pets. Here is their website.
The other option you have is to check your local human society and animal control. Often owners surrender their dog and puppies or they are picked up due to running loose and the owners don't come forward to claim them. In the next few months there will be a lot of puppies that are going to be listed for adoption. Every christmas, well meaning relative, even parents get children a puppy and often it is not a good fit or idea and the puppies end up at the animal control or shelter. I would urge you to check there first as those dogs are usually euthanized first.
