Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Frankie came into FFR on 6/8/11 for our help to find her a new adoption home. Frankie is a very special dog. She comes from an abusive past and has flourished despite her past treatment. She is very curious yet cautious of new experiences. She does have high prey drive to other dogs and needs to be on leash at all times for control outside of her home. She has learned to play with toys and sleep in her crate. She is very smart and tries to avoid when she knows it’s time to do something she doesn’t want to do so we are working on her obedience manners. Frankie hasn’t had a lot of attention in her short life so she is very reluctant to let you stop petting her. With supervision she ignored the foster home's cat & fine with same size male dog. Frankie needs a very experienced pack leader guardian to train her. Adult home. No kids. **If you can't give her a home but can donate to help with her boarding care and training we greatly appreciate it. Please be sure to note that your donation is for Frankie. Update: Frankie is doing great at her trainer/boarding home. She went out for a social walk at a park and streets and she was great meeting new people. She did ignored other barking dogs but did bark at dogs at a store. She needs a forever very experienced home. Best as the only dog to continue her training. We are paying for her boarding with a trainer/boarding 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: Terrier / Mixed. We rescued Daisy and her three 1 week old puppies from a shelter. She was timid and very thin. At her foster home she relaxed and warmed up quickly.

When her pups are weaned she will need a loving quiet home. Her pups are: Steve Swanson and Sugar. Update: She and her 3 pups are doing great. Her pups are weaned and have moved to their puppy foster home. Daisy is timid and nervous at first of change but warms up. Foster Home Update: She is doing well at her foster home. They report she is very active so she needs an attached yard to run and play besides her daily walks. If she had another active small dog to play with that would be ideal.

      Posted Breed: Cairn Terrier / Mixed. Adorable Theo was shy at the shelter but once we took him out he was friendly fun and social. He loves other dogs and is affectionate with people. Theo is moderately active and would love to be your walking buddy or go to dog socials. He was neglected dirty and matted. Theo will be groomed after he recovers from his neuter surgery and relaxes at his foster home. Theo is a scruffy sweetie. Update: Theo is doing great at his foster home. He loves having someone around and very sweet. Easy dog. He follows his people around. Loves playing with another dog at home. Theo will be groomed soon. As for house-training you need to watch him or just take him out every two hours or so. You need to go with him and tell him to get busy and give him a treat and praise for going poddy. Like a puppy he is easily distracted so you must give him time to settle down and find his spot. Theo is active and happiest with another dog at home to play with.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Mixed. Sherlock was rescued from a crowded shelter. He is smart curious confident and gorgeous. Super people friendly alert snuggly and loves attention but he needs a leader to guide him. He can get anxious and nervous (Llasa personality). He is good with other small dogs with proper introductions on leash but he wants to be the top dog (alpha) at home especially with other male dogs. He did well with other dogs during our testing and on walks. Loves walks & socializing. He needs adult very experienced guardian only. Sherlock is sensitive and needs the guardian to be his leader with confidence (he will sense anxious/nervous person) and tell him what to do vs coddling (he will get confused). Guardian must be confident and guide him. He was leary and fearful of young kids (will nip). At home he likes to follow person around but does not like his face petted and may nip if stressed. Sherlock needs access to yard or walk for mid-day potty break. He needs daily exercise and someone home more or someone that can consistently give him a mid-day break. With our volunteers he is friendly walks well on leash and listens. Will snuggle in our laps (both women & men) when he trusts the person. Sherlock wants to bond to confident person who will guide him and he will listen. Smart. At his foster home we learned that Sherlock is very allergic to Dust Mites (in carpet). After many vet visits and holistic vets he is now on raw diet only and herbs for his allergy. So he needs a home with no carpet to avoid dust mites. He needs experienced quiet adult home and NO KIDS.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed. The Jurassic World litter were abandoned at a crowded shelter. We rescued them when they had no time/options left to save their lives. All were nervous but sweet. At our vet office they are happy and friendly with their staff for attention food and walks. Update from Foster Home: Bouncy is thriving at her foster home. She is a happy active girl who loves daily walks visits to the dog park and an evening of watching TV on her human's lap. Bouncy may be shy at first but warms up quickly and is enthusiastic affectionate loving snuggly playful and a wonderful companion. She would be happiest in a home with a moderately active companion dog and a quiet predictable home. Children 12 yrs and older as sudden movement and noise may frighten her.

      Breed: Maltese-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Maltese / Mixed. 7/8/2017: Update from foster home: Zeke has come along way. 7 months ago he was so starved you could feel his ribs and hip bones. He was very fearful of people would bark at them. No big dogs for Zeke (little dog syndrome). Zeke is now used to people coming in and out of the house not so fearful of foster home's husband anymore will climb up and give him a kiss. It's taken him a long time to trust but with his abusive last home that is what is expected with these dogs. Loves his little squeaky toys (doesn't squeak them) just loves to carry around the house and when done carries them inside his kennel. Kind of a little toy hoarder. He also loves playing with his foster home's little dog. Very adorable personality. Zeke would be great in a home as an only dog or with another small female companion. He will bond to the female quicker and may take time to warm up to a male in the home. Ezekiel needs to learn that he is safe and feels loved. He will need an experienced adult-only home. NO KIDS since he may nip when nervous.
