Posted Breed: Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). See Buddha's HomepageGo to our official website~~Buddha is a very handsome young Bulldog/Pit mix. He is short and stocky with an adorable face! His lower jaw is short often leaving his tongue out for even cuter pics! :) Buddha has been living with the owner/founder of Luvable Dog Rescue for about a year with ten other little dogs. In this time we have come to find that it is not a suitable living situation for him living with so many other dogs. He is great most of the time but has shown some food aggression towards the little dogs (NEVER PEOPLE). Because of this it would be best for Buddha to be an only dog or have a large female dog to play with (no littles). He does great meeting other dogs and people and is quite social :) Unfortunately he has received no basic training so far so that will need to be done in his new home. He is VERY treat motivated and receptive to learning so training his basics should come very easy. Here he walks offleash on hikes twice a day with his pack and never runs off. He needs some practice on leash as he does pull and is strong but responds well to being worked. He is great in the car and visiting public places, is house broken and pretty mellow. He hangs out in the office at Luvable with us and snoozes most of the day away but loves to play and be active as well. He would be a great dog to take to work! He misses his old best friend (a 20lb Terrier) they loved to chase and play, so he definitely would like to socialize with other dogs and play as long as there is no food to fight over.

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.
