More About American Pit Bull Terrier Breed
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 Pit Bull Terrier-Pointer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Peaches is a silly-but-sweet girl. She is active, but can settle well and loves to seek out attention and stay near people. She is a great kisser! Peaches likes other dogs and gets lonely without a companion, but needs properly matched to a tolerant dog friend. She hops right into a car and walks well on a harness. She was very good with children at a recent visit to the store and did not startle at any noises. Peaches requests a dog house at her new home, because she loves to hang out in one! She is at the cutoff between medium and large size and only 40lbs. She is technically now a senior, but we doubt she'll ever really grow up ;) Est DOB: Jan 2010 "Senior" is at least 7 years old, but don't tell Peaches. "Large" is over 20 inches at the shoulder, even if just barely. Fenced yard usually required and approved application always required. Visit or email for adoption application.

With other dogs, he likes to be the boss and is more tolerant of female dogs than other males. He is as strong in will as he is in body, so needs someone used to large dogs!

      Posted Breed: Hound / Terrier / Mixed. Cute Aubie is full of fun and love. She is a trickster girl and loves her games of "keep away" yet will always come running for treats and sweet talk. She likes her walks and grooming sessions. Having grown up at the shelter, Aubie does need to adjust to new things. She is more cautious of unfamiliar men and of children, and new situations. She is loving and loyal to those she knows. Aubie does best with submissive and sensible dogs; high energy or assertive dogs upset her. http://calhouncountyhs.blogspot.com/p/adopt.html "Adult" is at least 3 years old.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Hound / Mixed. Audrey is a sweet girl. She responds beautifully to gentle strokes and kind words and would love a quiet home with someone to build her confidence. She walks fairly well on leash and was a little nervous but curious about the car. Loud noises startle her but she recovers quickly. She prefers to potty outside so may well be housetrained. She will ignore dogs who ignore her but is not a good fit with most dogs and will not back down from a challenge. She avoids the cats. http://calhouncountyhs.blogspot.com/p/adopt.html "Adult" is at least 3 years old. "Large" is over 20 inches at the shoulder.

      Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Mixed. Cute Bruno is an absolutely adorable low-rider! He is a soft natured little guy who likes a good cuddle. He gets really excited when he sees a leash. He is a bit of a foodie and would benefit from a slow-down dish, but takes treats very nicely. He has been great with friendly female dogs and plays well, but he has a naughty side and does like to stir it up with most other male dogs. Bruno is sadly already heartworm positive at his young age. Please discuss options with the shelter and your vet. He is worth the treatment!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed. It is hard to believe someone lost this big girl, but its true - she was found roaming. She is just a baby still, very young and silly. If you would love the challenge and reward of training up a young gal to be a model citizen, she is full of opportunity! Though definitely of a mastiff type, she is not as huge as a full mastiff (tho she isn't dainty either - she is 78#). She is very sweet and wants to be a lap dog, so be prepared! She does need plenty of exercise and attention to avoid turning her teeth toward destructive enterprises. Also, being big and clumsy, she would be a poor choice for a family with young children. She has done well with a Great Dane but not with a smaller dog. If you have a dog her size, that may work out. But on the other hand, she might be all the dog you need! "Adult" is at least 3 years old. "Large" is over 20 inches at the shoulder. Fenced yard and approved application required. Visit or email for application.
