Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). See Sky's HomepageGo to our official website~~These two BLUE EYED BEAUTIES are Sky and Rain We believe Sky (all white) to be entirely deaf and possibly the very young mom of Rain (grey and white) who seems partially deaf. For those of you that do not know, typically when you see a white dog with blue eyes, they are most likely born deaf. These two instantly were staff favorites! Rain, we believe is between 9 months old to a year. She has more energy and acts very puppy like :) We are working on her leash manners as she obviously was not used to walking on leash before and is doing much better on an easy walk harness. She is starting her basic training here at Luvable and we are working on encouraging her to visually check in with us like Sky does to help with her partial hearing. Rain seems like there are some sounds she can pick up, but she is not quite sure where they are coming from and does not think yet to check back in with her person :) We would love to see Rain with another fully functioning dog that can help her with her hearing loss and to have a playmate that likes to chase and wrestle as much as she does and maybe show her how to be a grown up more :) If you are interested in adopting Rain, email Adoptions@Luvabledogrescue.org for an application!

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.
