Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi I'm Tilly! I am about 3 years old and I came from an over crowded shelter in Arkansas. I am so happy to be in Iowa so I can find my forever home. I am a very sweet girl. I love people and love to play! I am not a big fan of cats but I like other dogs if I am properly introduced. I love to cuddle and can be a lap dog if you let me! I love to go on walks, jogs and just hanging out at my house with my family! I love to go for car rides too! I have very short hair and shed very little! I am a little nervous around small kids so kids over 10 are best. Won't you come meet me soon!

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: Siberian Husky
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Cedar Rapids, IA
      Posted Breed: Siberian Husky (medium coat). My name is Blaze, I am a super smart 4 year old Husky. I am looking for an active home that is familiar with my breed. I am a high energy kind of guy, but I do know when it's time to lay down and relax because that's my favorite time to get my behind scratched! I'd like to find a family with a fenced in yard, I'm not a fan of cats or little dogs - I just can't figure them out! I don't mind dogs that are the same size as me, as long as they like to play and understand that I can be bossy. I definitely want a home with another dog already in it! That fenced in yard is important to me because I need a place to burn off energy with my family, I'm not a fan of spending long days in the kennel so I'm looking for a family that has a flexible schedule and can take exercise breaks with me throughout the day. I'm most comfortable with men, I still get nervous around the ladies. Maybe with some day I can learn to be a ladies man, but for now I'm looking to find my new main man! All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called. The $250 adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, microchip and vaccinations. If you are interested in learning more about Blaze or our other adoptable animals, please visit www.adopthope.org and complete an adoption application.

My foster home has two small children and we get along great!I love to cuddle and give kisses, and I like to think that I am a lap dog...although you may disagree because I'm such a big boy! I did have a rough start, because my previous owner didn't properly care for me, I suffered from irritated skin and allergy issues, but am all better now thanks to my loving foster home. I will need to continue to see the vet for skin checkups and allergy shots in the future. If you think I might be a good fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application at AdoptHope.org to be considered. I look forward to finding my forever family and covering them in kisses!

I'm not too fond of cats and other dogs, well they tend to steal the spot light so that upsets me. I love the water and playing in the kiddie pool!

      Breed: Harrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Cedar Rapids, IA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Harrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Duke! I am a charming, happy, Cattle Dog mix, about 2 yrs old. I love to go for walks or runs (and I am really good at it!). I also love car rides, stuffed animals, and playing in a fenced-in backyard. I am completely house trained, crate trained , and am very intelligent. I know what sit, lay down , and stay mean, but I could use some more training to work on those commands and anything else you want to teach me. I love to run and play; I have a whole lot of energy, but I also love to cuddle, give kisses and be loved by my human companion . Basically, I just like to be doing what my people are. I am very cautious of new people. I really prefer to come check you out first, and I really rather you don’t pet me until I know you will treat me with kindness. I may have to meet you a couple times before I know I can trust you . I can’t tell my friends at Last Hope what happened to me before I came to stay with them, but all they know is that it takes me a while to trust people. Because of this, I should not be in a home with young kids or teens. My dream home would be with an adult family who is familiar with my kind of challenges. I would love 1 other playful dog around my size or bigger to play with (I can play a little rough so they need to be tough like me) and a family who is very patient with me while I adjust to new people in my life. I am a very loyal companion and I just want to please my humans! Once I know I can trust you, I just want to be around you and will be your shadow as you go through your day. I have also had my DNA tested! I am officially an Australian Cattle Dog / Harrier mix! I can’t wait to find my forever home. All of our pets need to be kept as indoor pets and we do require a home visit as part of the adoption process. Landlord (if applicable), vet and personal references will be called.

I am about 2 1/2 years old. I had a pretty rough time before I came to Iowa. I am missing some hair on my body because of some very bad people. But no worries now.. I am all healed up and really want a home were I can love on all my people. I will need to be with kids over 10 because I am still pretty sensitive where I lost my hair and I can get a little nippy if little people are touching me there. I will need on going care for my skin so I don't get sores. I know lots of commands too. I can sit, down, shake and I am crate trained. I love to play with toys too! I like being the only dog in the house but with proper introduction to other dogs I'm usually okay! Everyone says I am a very handsome boy. I would love to meet you!

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Piper! I'm sure you glanced at my photos & noticed how adorable I am! I just love people and all the attention I can get! I love to follow my foster mom around the house. I love to play but when you settle in on the couch you should probably make room for me too! I'm working on all my commands I know "sit" "come" "go to your bed" and "lay down". I love to go for car rides and walks. When I'm outside I have to be on a tie-out or leash since I like to climb fences. I like to have all the attention and would prefer to be your only pup in the house. My foster mom has a dog I have been getting along with great...but I can be picky about who I'm friends with. I would love to meet you to see if I am the perfect addition for your family!! Please contact my foster mom at slackore1@gmail.com or adoptions@adopthope.org.
