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.

      Location: lago vista, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). PLEASE SHARE! ****AUSTIN, TX AND SURROUNDING AREAS**** Remember Milo, our Brooks dog? Look at that sweet boy now! Tons of love and great foster homes have created a beautiful, funny, sweet lovebug. Milo is ready to go to his perfect home. He is approximately 2 years old, is UTD on shots and has been fixed. He gets along with most other dogs, but a meet and greet would be required (he and my male doberman did not like each other). He does NOT like cats, so we can't have any meow meows around the home. He's smart, eager to please, and loves to just hang out and play with his stuffies and his girlfriends. If you are interested in giving Milo a permanent home, please fill out the adoption application at www.dontbullymerescuetexas .org/adopt

      Location: lago vista, TX
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hello! My name is Fatboy, but my friends call me Bob. I am a 4 year old bachelor looking for a place to call my own. I'm not much of a partier. I prefer nights at the house, laying on the couch and watching chick flicks with my foster mom. However, I am up for going out, at times, for long walks with the human of my dreams. I also really enjoy the w ... ater! Whether its splashing around and playing, or laying in the water to cool my heels, I am happiest to be playing in water. I will even settle for a water hose and a kiddie pool, cuz I'm just an easy going type of guy! Like any man, I'm not much for cuddling, but I will definitely give away kisses like they are going out of style! I'm very much into being around my human, so I'm not so keen on being confined to smaller places. I'm working on it though! I'm also working really hard at potty training and have even learned to use the potty bells! Although I get along with most other dogs, I prefer dogs my size or smaller. I can't help it! I don't need any competition! All in all, I'm a very sweet and gentle guy. And as you can probably tell, I'm pretty dang handsome, even with my wrinkles(I don't believe in Botox). I'm just looking for someone to call my own and a place to come home to! Could you be my perfect match?

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: lago vista, TX
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). We had received a call late Easter Sunday on a possible abandoned injured little pit bull that had been hanging around all day at the ladies house that contacted us. Her right leg was swollen and she could not bear weight on it. One of our amazing volunteers picked her up and brought her to their home but they can only keep her there temporarily. Even though we did not have any room in our organization, we could not turn our backs on her. Grace was seen by the vet, we had x-rays done and it was said that she was struck by a snake. Grace is healing nicely and is ready for a long term foster home until she is adopted out. Please consider opening up your heart and home to this beautiful girl. www.dontbullymrescutexas.org/adopt
