Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Dinah, a senior pit mix, is good with other dogs and with my cat. She is an easy old girl who just wants to feel safe and to be near her human. Her house-training is perfect. She is not going to be anyone's running partner or even much of a walking partner, but she is a love to hang out with. She just wants to be nearby. Sits under my feet when I am at my desk. So sweet. Contact me, her foster mom, today for more info about this sweet girl!

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.

      Beagle-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Asheville, NC

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed. Please contact Rose Mary (rosebudsantori@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Rocky is quite the character and expresses himself with the most comical noises. He is very much a buddy and loves to sit next to you on the couch; of course, he's short, so he needs a hoist up or stairs. Otherwise, even though he is a bit stocky, he gets around just fine. I call him my little tottlebot, bug-eyed boy. He defends the yard with his snorts and beagle bellows. He and my other foster, Noelle an 80 pound shepherd, are my couch potatoes and ground patrol. No squirrel is safe when they're out and about. Not that either would catch one! Rocky is house-trained and ignores the seven cats. Rocky is food sensitive, so he's given grain-free dry food, which is commonly available now. Due to his age, he has glucosamine supplements. Contact me for more info about rollicking Rocky!

      Location: Asheville, NC
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Jackie (jackie@bwar.org) for more information about this pet. Momma Gracie - aka Momma Nublet - is a very special girl. She came to us with her newborn babies, who have all since been adopted, and is now looking for her own forever family. Momma loves all people, is very respectful of cats, and gets along fine with most dogs. She can be guarding of her food around other dogs, so should be fed separately (always a good idea). Because she was emaciated when she came to us, we guess that she was on her own for some time. Momma is super sweet, soulful, and gentle, but is also attentive and has a great protective bark she uses when strangers are near her house. She is housetrained, non destructive, and easy to care for. She's happy to sleep at your feet, or take a nice walk around the neighborhood with. Two months ago Momma Gracie had a near-fatal internal bleed. We thought she might have cancer, but it was since been ruled out and we think it was caused by a problem during her spay surgery. Today she is very happy, healthy, and a superb companion for anyone. Email Momma's fostermom Jackie at solemn78@hotmail.com to meet this one-of-a-kind dog!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Asheville, NC
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I’m a beautiful girl looking for my forever home. I’m super-sweet with people and really enjoy their attention. As you can see from my photos, I LOVE people! (One of my favorite people at Brother Wolf calls me a love-bug!) Once I get to know someone, I’m their girl forever! I’d be happiest in a home with adults or older children. Other dogs (and cats) bring out my competitive nature, so I need to be your one and only furry companion. I enjoy romping in the play yard at Brother Wolf, and I would absolutely love playing with you in a fenced-in yard — I hope you have one! I’d also love to go out walking with you — I’m fine with other dogs being around as long as we don’t get too close. I know "sit" and enjoy car rides. I’m recovering from injuries to both my back knees. I’m doing well and have been enjoying light exercise with my human friends at Brother Wolf. I hope to improve more each day! So, if you’re interested in a loyal companion who would love to go on walks with you or just cuddle at home, please come to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue so we can get acquainted! Maybe it’s your “Karma” to take me home! :-) All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).
