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. Adoption Fee: $350.00. Friends! My name is Jaq. I’m a 2-3 year old laid back, super chill, and completely lovable fur baby. Did my foster friends tell you that I have been the best behaved dog in all the history of foster dogs, because that’s what they tell me! Boy am I a good boy. I am completely potty-trained with absolutely no accidents in the house and I even let you know when I have to go outside. I’m also crate-trained and have no issues being in my crate with a bone or chew toy. But I will let you in on a little secret…I don’t need to be crated if you choose not to. I don’t make a mess in the house or chew on things I’m not supposed to. My foster friends think that is the best quality about me! I also know my basic commands like sit, stay, leave it, and down. I’m actually really smart and eager to learn. I love those treats you get for being such a good boy. Did they also tell you that I really, really like other dogs. I’m not pushy at all and very well mannered around other dogs. Cats, however, are not my thing. Those little buggers make my mind run wild and all I want to do is chase, chase, chase them! So, I’m better suited for a home that does not have cats. But bring on the doggy brothers and sisters! One of my favorite things is riding in the car! That, and going through the drive-thru at Dairy Queen and getting one of those glorious Pup Cups. I do love my ice cream! I sit very nice in the car and can travel long distances, which means I would make a great companion for a road trip and I can come along on those awesome family vacations. I love my chew toys. I'm all about the toys and chew bones. I will lay at your feet for hours lounging and playing with my toys. I also love playing fetch and will run after the ball for hours. Another one of my favorites is tug. I will tug with my human and tug with other dogs. its so much fun! I would make the best family dog as I very much enjoy being around kids. Those little dudes make my day way brighter. I sneak a kiss in here, a nose nudge there, and will do just about anything for a treat from them. I take my treats very nice, and wait patiently to get them. So please, hit up my foster friends and come meet me!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 350.00. Chip is looking for his forever home! PLEASE NOTE- Chip will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 16. He is available as a Foster to Adopt Dog, which means you can take him into your home while he is still growing (and while he still has that yummy puppy breath!). However, because of his age, he will still need to be neutered and have his full series of vaccinations completed, which we will provide. He MUST be taken through our 6 week Rott n' Pit Ed training course on Sundays in Eden Prairie with his new best buddy - YOU! This is required to ensure that his socialization is continued as he grows, and so that he is off to a good start in being a breed ambassador. Don't worry, the training classes are included. In fact, as an ARLP dog, he will receive free obedience training through ARLP's RPEd program for the rest of his life! Once he has been fully vetted, and completed his training classes, all of your patience will pay off when you get to sign the adoption papers and Chip is yours forever!

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 300.00. Sex: Male Age: 3 Years Good with dogs: Yes Good with cats: Yes Good with kids: Yes Weight: 50 lbs Hi, I’m Tyson! I am a playful, loving, loyal, petite, yet burly and handsome brindle boy. I am the perfect balance between a couch potato and short-distance running buddy. I can enjoy long walks just as much as curling up on my favorite spot on the couch or evening snuggles with you. My foster mom is working with me on all the training basics, so I'm a work in progress, but I'm so well behaved overall, and very eager to learn. Each morning, after a nice short walk, I just run into my kennel awaiting lots of fluffy blankets, a nice treat-filled Kong and patiently wait for your return. Sometimes I even sleep in the kennel, but most nights I get to sleep in the bed and cuddle with my people. I'm a pretty mellow guy, with short bursts of play-time with my humans or some chill doggy friends. I've been able to spend a lot of time with my part-time foster brother, another pittie. I've also been lucky enough to spend my summer at the cabin with some other family dogs that I've just grown to love. I have shown my foster mom that I'm an awesome travel partner - I really, really love car rides. I make a pretty good boating companion, too, but I haven't taken to swimming quite yet. I’m versatile - I would do great in a house being the only dog, or with other fur siblings, although I tend to appreciate the more easy-going, calm personalities. I'm not overly excitable, a very laid-back pup when it comes to meeting new people, but I really enjoy making new friends. Everyone who meets me comments on how good looking and independent I am. After a few short minutes, I'll probably just jump up (with your permission, of course) and lay on your lap....because who doesn't love a 50 lb. lap dog? I’m also learning how fun toys can be – nylabones, ropes, antlers, balls and kongs – so much FUN! Although my interactions have been pretty limited with young kids, and because of my size and initial excitement seeing them, it's always good to make sure we both understand our boundaries of one-another. Lastly, I'm a pretty sensitive guy who really wants to love and be loved. I can be the perfect fur-kid for you forever...I'm warm, approachable, very quiet (I almost never make a sound), and perfect cuddle partner.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 350. Hi! My name is Chloe. I am a sweet and affectionate Pit Bull. I am very, very smart, and extremely inquisitive! I am about 1-year old. I weigh 50 lbs. I love to hang out with my family, sit on your feet, go on adventures in the car, walk around the lake or play fetch in the park. I'm game for almost anything that you want to do! I am an excellent snuggler! I give very gentle kisses. I love being around people and I love kids. My foster family has two other dogs and I like living with them, but also was perfectly happy when they went out of town and I spent some time alone with my foster mom. My foster family says I have an adorable and funny personality, and I’m one of a kind. It is very important to them that I am happy in my forever home. My favorite snacks are dog treats, and I have a very gentle take. I sit on command and wait for my dog dish, I eat at breakfast time and dinner time. I am very polite and wait my turn for treats, and eat at the same time with my foster dog sisters. I am the most loyal dog you could ever want. I am easy going, but I’m also busy! I am crate trained, but love to sleep in bed with my family. Sometimes I bark when I don’t want to take a rest, but I know the command “no bark”. I came to my foster family with very little training and I have been working very hard. I know all my commands, but sometimes I will still jump a little and pull a little on lead…but I know I’m not supposed to! I guess you could say I am as lovable as much as I love to give love.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Hello! My name is Charlie, and I LOVE life and everything in it! A stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet, and I REALLY love other four-legged friends :) I am 50 pounds of pure, wiggly-butt, tail-wagging happiness! You can call me Charlie, Charlie girl, lovey, sweetie, or anything you want - I'm just happy you're calling for me! If I could have one profession, it would be a professional kisser at a kissing booth. My four-legged foster brother is so tolerant of all my kisses, and my foster mom says I give the best kisses ever. I also love to share - my brother and I share bones and toys all the time, and love to play tug. I haven't mastered fetch, but maybe it's just not my thing. I'm working really hard on potty training, and haven't had any accidents lately. And whenever you need to go do human things, I'm really happy to rest in my crate, and have never had an accident in my there - I'm pretty proud of myself. I sleep all night, too, so you can rest assured that you'll get a full night's rest :) I love to go for walks, too! My foster mom says I walk like a dream on the leash - I don't pull because I never want to be too far from you. When it's time to wind down, I'll just be happy to cuddle up right next to you while you read a book or watch TV. Personal space is not in my vocabulary :) When I picture my perfect forever home, I would love to have a family and definitely a four-legged friend or two that will always want to play with me! A fenced-in yard would be nice, but isn't necessary! I have a lot of love in this little body, and can't wait to share it with my forever family :) If you're interested in adopting this dog, please view our Placement Process and to fill out an online application.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 350. Well hi there! They call me Turtle. Why? I'm not sure because I'm not slow at all. I'm a friendly, fun loving guy who wiggles with excitement when ever you are around. Not to brag, but I'm a smarty too. I know sit, down, wait, shake, and kennel. I even know the names of some of my toys. I think my kennel is cool and I stay in there during the day and at night but I'll sure sleep on that comfy bed if you want me too. I know how to go potty out side too. I've been cool with little kids, but man o' man when I start to wiggle, my tail gets going so much my humans say it might not be good if I knocked a little human over. I get along fine with my foster sister, she growls at me sometimes when I get too annoying, but that's ok we still get to hang out on the couch together. She won't play with me though, so the human plays tug and fetch with me. Boy do I love that. I even get to go camping sometimes. I hang out by the campfire, eat grass, explore the woods and breath in the fresh air but I never go too far because I like hanging out with people too much :) If you're interested in adopting this dog, please view our Placement Process and to fill out an online application.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Bulldog / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Middle Aged Male Seeks Life-Long Companionship Full disclosure, I’m not really into this whole internet dating thing. I didn’t even want to write this, my foster mom made me do it. I’m cool with the set-up we have going on, but she says I’m a gown up man and it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. So here it goes… I’m an outdoorsy kind of guy. I love to explore the local trails, get a little dirt under my nails, and lounge in the sun. Picnics are awesome too. Food is awesome. I’d consider myself health-conscious; I eat a lot of those tall, green leafy vegetables that grow all over in the yard and I try to stay in shape. I believe in equal division of labor in the household and make it a point to help with daily chores. Right now my jobs are crumb catcher, toy extractor, yard marker, jester, critter chaser-awayer, and human exerciser. I’m willing to do most things to help out. I’m a sensitive guy, a bit introverted, and tend to be shy around new people. I need to get a few good, strong cookies in me if I’m going to really open myself up to somebody on the first date. But stick around long enough, and we’ll be cuddling together before long. I’m not really a fan of cats. I don’t get the attraction you humans have to them. I've met a few kids. They have been ok, the smaller ones seem to smell a bit funny. I'd be open to having some older children, I think. I still startle at, and run away from, some movements and noises. Those kid things don't seem to always know what their body's are doing, so long-term living situations with the smaller ones may not be enjoyable. Let my mom know if you are interested in setting up a date. She’s in charge of this thing. I’m letting her play matchmaker. I trust her judgement.
