I agree, Petfinder.com is an excellent source if you are looking to adopt a rescue. I would strongly urge you to consider a young adult dog rather than a puppy, puppies of course are very popular and are adopted quickly while many wonderful older dogs languish in shelters. Plus with an adult you know what you are getting, personality is established, many are already have some basic training, etc. I would also urge you to consider a JRT mix rather than a purebred, the mixes actually are usually much nicer dogs, and much more difficult to place.
I am a foster volunteer and work a lot with rescue, so perhaps I am a bit biased.
Best wishes on finding a new addition to your family.
