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: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). Hi, my name is Kuyo and I was a 4th of July runaway. It’s been a year since I was found roaming the local fields the day after the 4th. Sadly, my owners never came to claim me. I recently celebrated my one-year anniversary at the shelter by having a sleepover. I loved riding in the car, especially feeling air blowing in my face when I poked my head out the window. It made me feel free and brought back memories of better days. I enjoyed meeting and hanging out with her female Pit Bull and a small Chihuahua. I liked them both, but the Chihuahua was my favorite. She also has a cat…nice cat…if you like cats (but I don’t)! I slept in a crate throughout the night with no accidents. I overheard the nice lady say that I was smart (I know “sit”, “down” and “this way”) and that she liked my house manners. I loved the sleepover, especially being able to meet so many new people. It’s no substitute for a forever home, but it sure beats shelter life. Besides large dog playgroups, my favorite thing at the shelter is hanging out with the volunteers. Today, I had a chance to hang out with one of my newest friends at the shelter. She spent time with me in an exercise pen, let me cool off in a wading pool and then hung out with me in my kennel. I think I might have found my new BFF until I find my forever home. Come meet me today. I’m pretty much available 24x7 unless I’m lucky enough to have another sleepover.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). This is Snoopy but you can call him Velcro Lite, Splooter (his sploots are unparalleled. Truly) or Snoop Dogg (but that''s kind of a given). I brought Snoopy home for an overnight foster and he instantly took to my boyfriend and I like a baby takes to his parents. His primary objective all day and night was to please, and he did. You could call him from any room in the house and he''d come running with that giant smile on that mammoth head of his to sit at your feet and look up at you so adoringly you couldn''t help but feel guilty for being loved this much. Snoopy is the rare dog who wants to be by your side ALWAYS but also has a natural understanding of personal space. If you''re on the couch, he is gonna climb right up on there and sploot next to you - close enough for the scritches but not so close that you''re strapped in for a 12 hour Netflix marathon. His two states of being are `overjoyed` and `asleep` and that goofy smile will follow him into both. He is a natural couch potato but is versatile in his ability to go from `sploot` to 60 and back again depending on what it is YOU wanna do. Though people keep letting him down, Snoopy holds onto his spirit with a big, heart-melting grin. This boy loves with his whole body and the person who welcomes him into their family will have a lifelong best friend. Ask Snoopy''s shelter champion and long time best friend, Darrell, about him: (805) 233-0594 (text or call). Ask Snoopy''s overnight foster, Rachel, about him: (805) 813-1458 (text or call).

I can''t wait to meet you and show off all my other fabulous qualities. My foster home is great, but what I really want is a forever home.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). Hi, my shelter friends call me Voltaire and I haven''t been here very long, but it seems like a nice place. The food is good, my new friends chat with me and pet me when ever they can, and they give me nice plankets to keep me comfy in my kennel. What I''d really like though is a forever home and family to call my own. Once the shelter workers have a chance to get to know me better, they''ll have more to say about me. If you want to meet me right now though, that would be GREAT! The nice people at the Adoption center can arrange for us to meet today! Just take my kennel number with you and we can hang out for a bit. Watch Voltaire''s video:

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Gordon Setter / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Once upon a time I was a handsome pup with my life before me. But, life hasn''t always been easy for me and, through no fault of my own, I ended up here at VCAS. But, I am not going to let being here keep me down. I am in good spirits because I keep thinking that a nice, loving human is going to adopt me and we are going to be happy furever after. Like many men of advanced years, my fur is thinning, but I am ok with that. I have very nice manners, I know `sit` and `shake` and I am a treat hound! I love to play fetch and when I see grass, watch out because I love to roll in it! I am hoping that someone who likes massages will adopt me because massages are one of my most favorite things in the whole world! The volunteers here at VCAS are very good at giving me massages. But, most of all, just like you, I just want a human of my own to love and who will shower me with as much love as they have to give!

PackWalk participant * Lower energy dog with good house manners * Crate and house trained * Knows `sit`, `down` and `shake` commands * Lived with cats while in foster care Ready for 80 pounds of pure love? If so, then you must meet me: I''m Duke and I am your dream dog! My foster family says I''m very sweet and easygoing. I have a great time meeting new people and other dogs on my daily walks, and I am very social and affectionate. I know my basic commands and I''m even crate-trained. Right now I''m living with some cats and I have a canine buddy, but if you have pets and want to see how we might get along, my fosters can arrange a meeting. But first you might want to get a new dog bed, some bowls and other supplies because once you meet me you won''t let me go!
