I've already been neutered, am up-to-date on vaccinations, including rabies - with tag; on heart worm preventive; and micro chipped! Please call 662.386.7429 to bring a ton of love into your home!

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 / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Intake Date: 12.12.16 Appx. DOB: 2.14.16 Weight: 49 lbs Vee is a great young boy. He's only been with us for a short time, but we have already fallen in love. We say this because he is silly, loving, kind, fun, and he absolutely loves belly rubs. He even gets along with all the other dogs. Vee's favorite things are treats, belly rubs, belly tickles, and more treats. Vee was found by good samaritans at the VFW in Columbus. He was a little on the thin side, but after seeing his sweet face we couldn't say no. Vee is hoping beyond hope that one day soon we will be able to find him the forever home that we promised. If you are interested in giving Vee his forever home, give us a call at 662-386-7429.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). 43 lbs I am a black and white “tuxedo” dog with smart white “gloves” and a sloppy pink tongue (for giving lots of kisses). Although I am three years old and fully grown I have maintained my girlish figure. This makes me perfect for a small yard or a life inside the home. My desire is to be an only child with adult parents. (Other dogs cramp my style.) I have a bit of a scar over one eye. Some say it only adds to my sexy, bon vivant, beauty. I am up-to-date on all vaccinations, have a micro chip, and have been spayed. Please call 662.386.7429 to make me a part of your crew. I would love to be your “matey”.

A nice lady fought for me and saved me from that place. I will be neutered 2.4.16, am up-to-date on all vaccinations - including rabies, on heart worm preventive, micro chipped, and am ready to find a new family with whom I will hopefully spend the rest of my doggy life with!!
