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.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eugene , OR
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Polly! I have some pretty awesome ears that get lots of attention everywhere I go :) The people here say it adds lots of character! I am a really sweet girl that has had a very unstable life. Some people found me in Southern California at a Playground covered in lots of bites and injuries. When they called my family from my microchip they said they didn't want me anymore :( Hope for Paws rescued me and had me stay in boarding for a while where I got lots of training and socialization. I was REALLY overweight so they helped me slim down to a trimmer figure ;) I finally got to come up to Eugene Oregon at Luvable Dog Rescue and I LOVE it here! I get so excited to go for walks and hang out in play groups. I love being around other dogs and would do well with another male dog in my new home or be the only dog too! I DO NOT LIKE CATS! I do need a stay at home human because I have a lot of anxiety when I transition to a new place and it takes me a few weeks to fully settle but I'm told i'm worth the wait. I don't like being left alone and I don't like being locked in a crate so I need a family that wants to be with me. If you would like to meet me, email Adoptions@Luvabledogrescue.org for an application! I hope to find my forever home soon! Luvable Dog Rescue is a lot of fun but I know a family of my own will be even better! WOOF!

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Stevie was brought to us from Heartland Humane Society because he was too nervous in that environment and they worried he would not get adopted. Since He has been at Luvable he has come out of his shell more and is a very sweet little man! He is getting along well with the other dogs here and prefers to be with the more mellow kiddos. He needs some work on barking for attention but he is learning to listen very well :) If you are interested in meeting this Luvable dog, email Adoptions@luvabledogrescue.org for an application and more information!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Choco and Indie have so much love to give! These two sweet 11 year old dogs had to lose their home and family when their family was deployed over seas. When we saw their faces at the shelter our hearts completely broke and we could not let them be separated or end their beautiful long lives that way. Choco and Indie have been doing great here at Luvable these past few weeks aside from getting hit hard with kennel cough, they are now on the mend! They have been living in a cottage where they have shown they are housebroken, use the dog door regularly, are completely non destructive and very quiet/mellow house companions. These two will soon be moving into foster care until they can find a family that will show them the love they deserve for the rest of their lives! Even with everything they have been through Choco and Indie always have smiles on their faces and they LOVE TO SNUGGLE! Choco loves to walk up to you and bury his head into your lap and let the snuggles begin :) If you are interested in adopting these two wonderful dogs, email Adoptions@Luvabledogrescue.org for an application

      Location: Eugene , OR
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Hi! My name is Connor :) I was adopted from Luvable Dog Rescue when I was 9 weeks old and was brought back because I did not get the training that I needed at the start of my life in my first home. I need an experienced owner that understands training and structure but can also be cuddly and loving with me. I did not get walked much in my first home so everything I see or hear (bikes, other dogs, lawn mowers, skateboards etc.) gets me really worked up when I am out so my trainers have been working on socializing me and I am doing a great job and making tons of progress fast..they say i'm very smart! I am super snuggly and LOVE people! I am really quiet in my house and love to do training with my people. I am potty trained and love my crate! My trainers want to make sure I am really ready for my next home and do their best to set me up to succeed so they say no children in my new home (even though I am GREAT with them), no cats and a fenced backyard is needed for me. If you are interested in adopting me, they are accepting applications and you can email Adoptions@Luvabledogrescue.org!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Bulldog Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Eugene, OR
      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). See Buddha's HomepageGo to our official website~~Buddha is a very handsome young Bulldog/Pit mix. He is short and stocky with an adorable face! His lower jaw is short often leaving his tongue out for even cuter pics! :) Buddha has been living with the owner/founder of Luvable Dog Rescue for about a year with ten other little dogs. In this time we have come to find that it is not a suitable living situation for him living with so many other dogs. He is great most of the time but has shown some food aggression towards the little dogs (NEVER PEOPLE). Because of this it would be best for Buddha to be an only dog or have a large female dog to play with (no littles). He does great meeting other dogs and people and is quite social :) Unfortunately he has received no basic training so far so that will need to be done in his new home. He is VERY treat motivated and receptive to learning so training his basics should come very easy. Here he walks offleash on hikes twice a day with his pack and never runs off. He needs some practice on leash as he does pull and is strong but responds well to being worked. He is great in the car and visiting public places, is house broken and pretty mellow. He hangs out in the office at Luvable with us and snoozes most of the day away but loves to play and be active as well. He would be a great dog to take to work! He misses his old best friend (a 20lb Terrier) they loved to chase and play, so he definitely would like to socialize with other dogs and play as long as there is no food to fight over. If you are interested in learning more about Buddha and applying to adopt him, email Liesl at lkwpb@rosenet.net!
