Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). My name is ROMEO and I'm an oh soo handsome 2 yr M Black/White Amstaff/Pit X. I'm 55 lbs of PURE LOVERBOY. I was rescued from a high kill shelter but due to unforseen circumstances, I need to be rehomed. I'm very sweet, loving and friendly but I'm still young and a bit anxious & need structured exercise and discipline. I'm leashtrained, housetrained and cratetrained but could use some further obedience training. I've not been socialized with large dogs but I currently live with a small female chihuahua and am good with her so I would be best with a small dog or submissive large female dog. Unfortunately I have not been around cats. I also live with two 7 yr old kids but when they play rough, I get upset so it's best if I go with older kids ages 15 yrs+ or to an "adult only' home. I'm looking for someone who has had previous experience with my breed and would love a loyal companion and BFF. Please come meet/adopt me today!! For more info/app; pls email: CECE@TAILSOFLOVERESCUE.ORG

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). *CROSS/COURTESY POST* My name is CAS aka CASTIEL and I'm a HANDSOME 3/4 yr M Blue/White Amstaff/Pitbull X. I'm 70 lbs of PURE WUGGIE LOVE! I was found abandoned tied to a stairwell in the Bronx, NY but the good samaritan that brought me in says I'm a sweet, loving big GOOF of a DOG. He's an endearing, occasionally stubborn doofus with wonderfully polite manners and a friendly fascination for everyone he meets big and small. Strong but silly, he loves other dogs and when he's offleash with them he bounds, runs, play bows, snuffles and 'talks' to his friends, all while wearing the most pure-hearted and happy smile on his handsome face. He's a good walker just pulls a bit who seems extremely house trained. Because of his size and strength, it's best if he goes w/ kids over 10yrs old and with someone who has had previous experience with strong bully breeds. Castiel is one in a million and will be your BFF!! Please come meet/adopt him today!! For more info/app; pls email: HEAVENCANWAITNY@AOL.COM

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Bull Terrier / Mixed. Joey was found tied up to a bench at a beach in Far Rockaway on a cold February morning by NYPD. Joey was the picture of the shameful result of neglect and abuse. He was malnourished at 48 pounds and suffering from a horrific case of demodectic mange that had advanced to the point where it ruptured his hair follicles, the year-and-a-half old Pit mix also suffered from a bacterial skin infection secondary to the mange that involved three different types of bacteria. Joey has recovered from his ailments and is ready for his forever home. Joey is young and very energetic. He would do best in a home with bully breed experience. He has been socialized with the rest of the pack in foster care but can be pushy at times – Joey likes being the center of attention. If you are interested more information about Joey or would like to meet him please email me at ruthann@tailsofloverescue.org or (646)436-3625.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. RIZZO is a BEAUTIFUL 3y M Brown Amstaff who is 36lbs of PURE SWEET MILK CHOCOLATE. Poor Rizzo was surrendered by his owner because of "No Time" and unfortunately the owner didn't even have time to feed him because he is extremely skinny and underweight with all his bones showing... but sweet Rizzo has no hard feelings towards anyone.... He just LOVES EVERYONE and once he puts on weight he will be A SUPERMODEL Rizzo was a little skittish at when he first came into the shelter but he quickly warmed up to everyone and has become a "volunteer favorite" Because he was soo nice and balanced the behaviorists chose him to be used as the "helper dog" in evaluating other dogs on their dog 2 dog reaction. He is FRIENDLY TO ALL DOGS BIG &SMALL Rizzo does pull a bit on the leash and this is because he was never leash trained. In fact his nails are soo long and this indicates his owner(s) probably never walked him. In fact we found out that Rizzo spent most of his day tied up in the house. which is really sad. Rizzo appears to be housebroken as his kennel is clean as a whistle and he does his business as soon as he is outside. Rizzo loves to play in the backyard and he is SO AFFECTIONATE as he loves to come on the lap and kisses, kisses and kisses. Rizzo is good w/ other dogs and when he sees another dog, he just wants to play!!. Rizzo is a not a good dog, he is a GREAT DOG- An Ambassador for his Breed and will make a WONDERFUL FAMILY DOG & LOYAL COMPANION - Come Meet/Adopt him Today!

      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I'm ROXY I'm a beautiful 4 yr F Brindle/White Amstaff/Boxer X. I am approx 55 lbs of PURE BROWN SUGAR. I was rescued in the nick of time from a high kill shelter in NY as a puppy & I found a home pretty quickly but due to a moving situation, my adopters couldn't keep me. I'm missing toes on my left front paw - not sure if I was born with this handicap or it was due to an accident or abuse - but as a result, I tend to walk with a little limp. It makes me a little insecure, but it doesn't hinder my amazing fetching abilities. I love to run and chase the ball and can play fetch all day! I am good with most dogs as long as they are calm, balanced i.e submissive and ones that don't care about toys since I like to hoard/protect them. I like to chase cats a bit too much and small kids have too much energy for me and make me nervous. I'm a bit guarded with strangers at first but as soon as I warm up to them, I'm their BFF forever esp if they have a ball! I'm looking for a quiet adult only home with someone who is medium active and knows my breed and will give me the support and confidence I need and play fetch with me everyday! A big fenced in yard would be great too! Please come meet/adopt me today!

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / English Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). My name is BUSTER BROWN & I'm an adorabull 3yr M Brindle/White Staffie Bull Terrier/ English Bulldog X. I'm a a little compact guy but I'm a solid 70lbs of PURE WUGGIE LOVE!! I'm very strong but am well trained on the leash. I love to play with balls but once I get a hold of them it's hard to take them from me as I have that English Bulldog stubborness. I seem to be ok with other dogs running side by side in a fenced yard but haven't had much socialization with dogs off leash. Because of my strength and bully attitude, it's best if I were a SOLO dog and not be with young kids or cats. I need to be with someone who has had previous experience with my breed and can understand and appreciate me. Please come meet/adopt me today!!

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Collie / Mixed (medium coat). My name is BUDDY and I'm a darling 1.5 yr M Black/Tan/White Shepherd/Collie X. I'm a petite 50 lbs of SWEET N LOW. I was rescued from a high kill shelter down south. I was rescued from a hoarding situation and because I was never properly socialized with people as a puppy, I'm shy, shirky and skittish and I will run if I get spooked. Because I'm "flighty" I must be on a leash at all times. I am slowly but surely coming out of my shell and becoming a more balanced dog. Once I know you, I get attached very quickly but I need to find that special someone who will be patient and nuture, train and work with me to give me the self confidence I need. It would be great to go with another similar dog as well. I'm fine with cats but because I'm so shy and skittish, it's best I go with older kids ages 12 yrs+. Please come and meet/adopt me today!!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). My name is JASMINE & I'm an ADORABULL 5 yr F White/Grey Amstaff/Pit X. I'm 70 lbs of SUGAR PLUMP DUMPLING & I'm just the sweetest!! I'm a short chunky gal but I can be a bit of a bruiser since I'm so strong. I get excited when I'm outside but inside the home I'm a total couch potato. I currently live with 2 other pits and am civil with most dogs on the street as long as they don't try to get on top of me. I am gentle with kids but have never met any cats so I'm not sure if I would like them. Even though I love food, I take treats very gently and know basic commands. Since I have white fur, I'm prone to certain food allergies and need to be on a 'no grain' or 'raw' diet. I am medium energy and walk well on a leash and love to go for a slow jog every now and then. If you're looking for a MUSHMELLOW to hang out on the couch and watch TV with.. I'm your gal!! Please come meet/adopt me today! For more info/app, pls email: CECE@TAILSOFLOVERESCUE.ORG

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). My name is CAPONE & I'm a handsome PUREBRED UKC registered 5 y M Blue/White American Staffordshire Terrier. Actually I'm an 'American Bully' I'm a big blue 'sexy beast' and am 102 lbs of PURE MUSHMELLOW. Look at my sweet big mushface!! I was surrendered by my owner due to housing issues but he spoiled me rotten and let me have run of the house and sleep on the couch and bed. Still he raised me well, because I have no separation anxiety, am housebroken, walk well on the leash and am not a barker. I may look mean but I'm just a BIG BABY, a GENTLE GIANT and have a very sweet mellow low key temperament and just want to be your best bud. Since I was an only dog, I wasn't socialized with lots of dogs but I seem to be ok with calm dogs, big or small however I do love puppies! I'm great with kids but I don't know about cats. They freak me out a bit. I think I could be trained with them but best if I don't go to a home w/ cats. I'm very easy going and not a hyper dog. I need to go to a home with someone who knows, understands and appreciates my breed. Please come and meet/adopt me today!! For more info/app, pls email: CECE@TAILSOFLOVERESCUE.ORG
