Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). Meet Gucci! She is a ball-catching superstar who loves sports and spending time with friends of all ages, especially if they like to teach her new games. A perfect day for smart Gucci includes going for a jog or playing ball, stopping by a training class, then snuggling up for a nap on your lap. Gucci could live with the right dog but prefers not to share her home with cats. If your family loves going on adventures and wants a best friend to join in on the fun, from hiking to drive-in movies to Frisbee tournaments, you might be the perfect match for sweet, silly Gucci!

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.

She doesn''t require a lot of exercise and is great to take on walks. All Diamond needs is the right family to give her a chance. Diamond would love a home where she doesn''t have to share the attention with any other pets. If you change Diamond''s life she will be sure to change yours. You can typically find Diamond cuddling with her best pal Jeff or playing ball in the yard with our volunteer Carol. Diamond has been sponsored by an anonymous dog lover & shelter supporter. If you adopt Diamond, all of her wellness exams and vaccines will be paid for.. FOR LIFE!

Since coming to the shelter, he has discovered the finer things in life. Andy never had a warm bed, a scheduled meal time, or walks outside in the grass. While Andy adores the shelter staff and volunteers, he would love a real family. Andy is nine years old and has never had people to call his own. His best friend Kate calls him Andrew which is fitting of such a handsome guy. Andy is a shar-pei mix and that breed is known for their loving, loyal, honest qualities.
