Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Garth is the ultimate ladies man! From the Tampa Bay Times: Garth has got friends in low places all right, but Garth always manages to look up. This tall, 3-year-old country boy was rescued by animal control officers following a horrific attack by his former owner. Garth suffered severe injuries to his head, heart and spirit. Thanks to Second Chance Friends/Second Chance Boxer Rescue, the American Staffordshire Terrier has been given the extended recovery time needed. Garth is now ready for a real home with a yard. He's affectionate, likes toys, other dogs and pleasing humans. He is waiting for you to adopt him! http://bit.ly/AdoptGARTH Garth is very affectionate and playful, but prefers a home with no cats. He enjoys the company of other dogs and should be fine with a canine companion. See his story here: http://bit.ly/GARTH_onABCNEWS

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.

      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Thonotosassa, FL
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. From the Tamapa Bay Times!!! "Straight outta "Hopelesstown" and on to "Happyville," Cairo is amazingly positive and well-mannered. Foster folks from Second Chance Boxer Rescue & Friends suspect that the almost 2-year-old American Bulldog/Boxer mix might have had some training before being abandoned to the streets. He posseses great leash manners and already knows 'sit.' Cairo's priorities are never in question: he loves attention, company, and food. Fully grown at 50 pounds, Cairo gets along great with kids and dogs, even smaller ones, but not so much with cats. To adopt this happy and healthy family dog, visit SaveABoxer.org."

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Hi! My name is Gracie. I am a beautiful 3 year old beautiful girl! Daddy says I am smart as a whip because I learn new tricks so quickly. I can shake with both the left and right paws, I know how to sit, how to lay down, hand wait politely for my food to be served. I love to please! I do OK on a lead... I still pull a little bit and could use more lead work. I love getting baths... I'll shower you with kisses as you shower me with water. I'm a very high energy dog and I live my life with enthusiasm. There is no such thing as too much play time! I'm not a fan of livestock or cats, and I'm pretty dog selective. I don't make friends with just any dog. I'd love to be your one and only!! Please visit me at http://bit.ly/GracieAdopt!! Hope to meet you soon!
