Q. I'm ready to adot a dog for free how I do I adopt a dog for free Nd wen would my dog be available I live in Indianapolis nd I would like a Shetland sh

A. You need to discuss it with your local shelters and dogs home. They are likely to need to do a home check to ensure it is suitable. It is unlikely that they will be free as they rely on donations to help run the centres and they want to be sure you are committed to ownership and caring for the dog. Please ensure that you can afford to keep a dog not just feeding but monthly flea and worm treatment, annual vaccines and insurance. Plus access to money in case of emergency veterinary bills.
