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.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Elmsford, NY
      Posted Breed: Shepherd. Bearlock is a gorgeous shepherd blend. It takes some time for Bear to get comfortable with you but once he does, he is a loving and loyal companion. This senior boy still loves to romp and play with his favorite volunteers. Bearlock would do best in an experienced household that will give him the time to adjust and get to know you. A note from his favorite volunteer: Bearlock is one big, mushy, very handsome boy. After he gets to know you he loves you forever. He is so affectionate that one of his favorite volunteers calls him "care bear". Bearlock loves walks, playing ball and watermelon. His favorite game is to tease you with a ball. He wants you to chase him or pull the ballt out of his mouth. If you don't succeed he throws the ball in the air in front of you with a big smirk on his face. Bearlock needs a home that will love & respect him and kiss him every day. He loves being around people that he likes. He is a bit nervous around new people so he is not someone you just bring up to new people and let them pet him. He also wants to he the only animal in the house.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Elmsford, NY
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier. Jessica is a fun, loving senior girl. One of her favorite things to do here is to hang out in the car with her favorite volunteers! She would do best in an experienced household that will give her time to adjust and get to know you. A little about Jessica from her favorite volunteer: At first glance, Jessica can seem a little aloof, a little guarded, but it doesn't take very long to discover what a loving, affectionate cuddlebug she is. She loves taking long walks, riding in the car and sticking her nose out the window to enjoy the wind on her gorgeous face, and she loves giving kisses to her favorite people. Because she's been in a shelter for so long, she needs to be in a home without children and other pets. Jessica can be a little protective of the people she loves so she would do best in a quiet home. She is very easy to walk and has no issues around food. Please come and spend a little time with Jess at the rescue and see for yourself what an incredible girl she is.

      Posted Breed: Basenji / Hound. Oliver is a handsome gentleman with a funky underbite! Once you get to know Oliver he is a loyal companion! Oliver would do best in an experienced household that will give him time to adjust. A little about Oliver from his favorite volunteer: I am a very handsome 10 year old boy. I am a little shy at first, but warm up , once we establish trust. I love to take walks, and spend time with the people I love. I am very smart, so I love to learn new things . I have lived with another dog, but it's been awhile, so I would have to see if I would still like that. I could have been named "Elvis" because he "ain"t nothing but a Hound Dog who "croons" " love me tender, love me true all my dreams fulfilled". His dream when he is not out walking with his nose to the ground is to have his butt on someone's lap.

      Posted Breed: Whippet. Mallory is an energetic and loving dog! She would make an excellent agility dog. She loves to play and lounge in the sun. A word from one of her favorite volunteers: Mallory is a big firecracker in a tiny package. She loves to carry and play with a stuffed "baby". As fast as lightening, this small bundle of energy will literally run circles around you.( and I mean actual circles. ) I dare you to catch her! throw her a tennis ball and she will kindly return it to you to to be thrown again, sometimes placing it further away and then rolling it back to you with her nose or roll over belly up and just wiggle till she's ready to go again. Mallory would love to have a fenced yard. She is a little leary of strangers, so visiting and spending time to get to know her would be best for all. She will fall head over heels when you gain her trust. Please fill out our dog adoption application online at pawscrossedny.org if you would like to meet Mallory

      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie. 8 Year old Yorkie needs a new home. He is a loving dog. Has brought us many years of happiness but unfortunately does not like our kids so he needs a new home. Very energetic and will be your best friend. He is a good dog, just needs someone with the time, patience and training. He has some separation anxiety so it would be good for someone who has the time to be home with him. Does not get along with other dogs (hasn’t been socialized, but maybe could be with proper training) Not Kid Friendly(Main reason we can’t keep him anymore) Maybe in a new home and situation this could be changed. He had all our attention for 8 years until we had kids and he just never accepted our son, or newborn. Is on a special diet of dog food. Can easily be ordered from chewy.com, that is where we get it free shipping and best price. Contact Lauren at 845-709-0957 or email obxlove2014@gmail.com
