Great app, loading issues


This is a wonderful app that ties together all the other pet finder/listing sites and even the local rescue pages. Everything is presented in a compatible and easy to use format and makes it so simple to browse all the dogs available for adoption in the area. I have never had any problems with any of the links or pages associated with this App.

The only drawback of the app is that it crashes frequently during use. It will work well, sometimes for a long browsing period even, but then it will close the app out and when I open it back up it reloads all the search settings.

Overall, I would highly recommend this app and hope that the crashing issue is fixed in a (hopefully) soon patch!

An in-depth and honest review


While the app does require Facebook to use, this is an okay app, depending on how you use it.

For those who would rather swipe through endless dog pictures, it's perfect. For those wanting to adopt dogs, however, the app is lacking.

The information is outdated and the devs need to find a different source for where they get the info for these dogs.

For those endless 1 star ratings for needing a Facebook to log in, I agree that it should be an option, not a necessity. If the Facebook information was passed on to the adoption agency, I could possibly see why they would need your credentials, but since it does not, that is moot.

The inability to change your location is also a downfall. Most of my Facebook friends are in my home state, and as such I can't find ones in their area and recommend them.

While shopping for dogs on your phone might sound fun, don't get your hopes up. Try the pound's official website, petfinder, or similar websites (that usually have mobile access) to research dogs before you go. Or better yet, visit in person. You never know: just like dating sites, that old, mangy looking dog online might look much better, and be a lot friendlier in person. :)
