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
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Golden Valley, MN
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. *** ADOPTION PENDING *** Sex: Female Age: 3 years Good with dogs: I need to be in a home without other dogs. I am not very comfortable around them, so I can be dog aggressive. I’m working on it! But it will take time and patience. Good with cats: I do not belong with cats. Good with kids: Yes, I love kids! I do very well with small children, but I am bigger and don’t always understand my size. Weight: 65 lbs Name/Nicknames: Blueberry Hobbies: Fetching, swimming, napping, cuddling, and I really love trying to help with everything, even though I’m not sure how to. Tricks/Commands: I know “sit” and “lie dowg” like the back of my paw, especially when I’m positive there’s food waiting for me at the other end of the trick. I know “shake” and “stay.” I know how to lie down for my meals and wait until I’m told. I’ve been interested in learning the names of different places and toys. I’m smart! Crate Trained: Yes Potty Trained: Yes Activity Level: Medium. I like to keep busy, but I’m not built for long runs in hot weather. Fun things I do: I’m really interested in what people are doing, and I like to offer my help however I can. If you have favorite things you like to do, you can bet I’ll show you that I want to participate somehow. But I also can find favorite places where I like to lie down and watch the world, if you need less help sometimes. Socialization/who I currently live with: I live with adults, but I’ve had sleepaway time with kids, and people say I’m good at it. Interesting things about me: I am a gorgeous girl. I love people, and going on adventures. I’m great at car rides. I make a lot of hilarious grumbling noises. What am I looking for: If you’re affectionate to dogs and like to play with them, that’s great, because that’s how I feel about humans! I like to be near them all the time. I do have seasonal allergies, so I want to be with someone who is aware when I’m uncomfortable and ready with the antihistamines if I need them. If you’re ready to love someone back who needs a little patience around other dogs, but is sweet, sturdy, and loving, then I’m ready for my forever home with you!

      Breed: Rottweiler
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Golden Valley, MN
      Posted Breed: Rottweiler. Well, hello there, I'm Cooper! Don't let my age fool you, I have plenty of energy and I have to say, I'm a pretty good boy. So why would you ever want one of those crazy younger punks :) My original owner trained me well and I used to go to work with him every day when he worked construction. Once I trust you, I listen well and I know all the good commands: sit, stay, lay down, come, roll over, drop, and I love treats and take them nicely (my foster dad secretly tells me I'm better behaved then my foster sister). I'm good off a leash, but in the city my foster dad keeps me on one because he says he can't trust the other four legged critters, but when I'm in the country I get to run free. I get happy when my foster people come home, or it's time to go for walks. I will play with a squeeky ball for hours, and ohhhh boy, do I love to go for rides, but I'm also fine being told to chill out and lay down when you are sick of me nuzzling you for attention. I grew up with an 8-year old. But I suppose I am too big for little ones who I might knock over or get crabby with them if they bug my while I'm sleeping. I'm friendly with strangers if they let me meet them first and don't get all up in my business right when they meet me, but hey, I'm a Rottie and we like to make sure everybody is cool. After that, I've been know to stick my face in their lap so they pet me more. I go on short jogs several times a week and it's so fun. I even have gone around something called Lake Calhoun a few times, and even downtown. It was so exciting. I stay out in the house during the day while the humans are at work and I sleep on the floor in the bedroom at night. I live with my foster sister and we get along ok, but she's kinda boring. This past week though we had another dog come hang out for awhile because her parents had something called a "baby". She is kinda pushy but at least she would play with me.

      Location: Golden Valley, MN
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Hi, I’m Laredo. I am looking for my forever home. I love houses with other dogs, because I just really love to play, play, and play. I really enjoy going on walks and my foster Mom tells me I’m pretty good on the leash. Kids are so fun too, every time I see a kid my whole body wiggles, I just can’t help it! I have heard about these cat creatures, but haven’t had the chance to be around one yet, so I don’t know if I like them or not. When I am not playing with other dogs, or toys, or my foster humans, I like to snuggle up on the couch with my foster Mom and chew on a bone.
