They let us know some things about her. We know that she is very sweet and great with other dogs and cats. She is a quiet and gentle girl that can also be a very silly, playful and energetic. The best of both worlds in one! She loves everyone and lived with children ages a few weeks old to teenage years. She is house trained. She knows sit, down, lie down, rollover, stay and many other things. When home alone she can be left alone in the house and is very relaxed.

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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). Money is a staff and volunteer favorite. He has the best temperment and is the perfect balance of energy and calm. He was fortunate enough to live in foster care for quite awhile. Sadly he was returned when another dog entered the household. Being returned to the shelter can be very stressful and depressing. Money is no exception to that. He is confused and uncertain as to why he doesn''t live in a home anymore. He lavishes any attention that he can get. He promises to be the best friend and companion ever and would love the same in return. Meet Money at our Avondale location!

      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Mariah (now Violet- she''s not a diva, so Mariah didn''t fit) went to a foster home a few weeks ago and is doing great! She loves being around her canine foster siblings and is learning to enjoy human company. She even spent the holidays with a house full of extended family, and wasn''t fazed one bit by all the commotion. Violet walks great on leash, is getting more comfortable with her crate, and LOVES having comfy beds to lay on. This smart girl is already housebroken, too! Violet will probably still need some time to warm up in her forever home, but she is such a joy that it is absolutely worth the wait. She would love to have another laid-back dog in the house to show her the ropes, too. If you think Violet is the girl for you, contact us today to set up a meet and greet!

Brutus can be a strong willed kind of guy and likes to be the leader when housed with other dogs. He looks like an American Bulldog and Pointer mix. When outside one on one he is a big mush ball and soaks up any and all attention. His behavior can often be fear based and it''s difficult to truly assess an animals temperment while in this environment. We think Brutus is an outstanding loveable lug who just needs to feel secure. If you''d like to meet him please visit the shelter or contact us right away. Fulton County Animal Services Atlanta Ga. 404.613.0358 adoptions@fultonanimalservices.com Urgent Hotline 678.870.4364

I NEED A RESCUE GROUP TO STEP UP FOR ME YOLANDA 482972 5 YEARS OLD HEARTWORM POSITIVE 58 LBS I don''t know why my people moved away and left me. I was alone in the backyard with my fur brother for days without food or water. We were really scared and finally a nice man came and picked us up. I get lots of food and water now. The people are really nice, but I''m still a little afraid. My favorite thing is when they take me outside. That is all I''ve ever known so it feels strange to live in a small kennel. They tell me that I could have a chance to live inside with a nice person. They say this person will take good care of me and I''ll never be abandoned again. Could this be true? Are you that person to give me a chance?
