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: Anatolian Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chouteau, OK
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd (medium coat). Chouteau Pound Pals www.ChouteauPoundPals.com Chouteau Pound Pals is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization. Bear is a typical Anatolian Shepherd that needs an experienced owner. He has a ferocious bark and takes some time to warm up to strangers which is typical to the breed. He was not raised as a livestock guardian so we are looking to find him a home as a family pet. He has not been a house dog nor has he been exposed to many things, i.e. car rides, crowds, etc. so a home with another dog that can show him the ropes and give him confidence in new situations is needed. Secure fencing is a must as the Anatolian breed in general can be a real "wanderer"! Bear would do best on a high energy diet until he gets to a good weight (120+ lbs). Please give us a call if you think you might be the perfect home for this gentle giant - 918-706-1073. To inquire about this dog, please call Nancy at 918/706-1073. We do require that an application be filled out & considered. Our adoption fee is $75.00. To see all of our available dogs, please visit our website.
