Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Bud was found in a rural area of Matagorda County very emaciated with no where to go but the pound. A kind lady agreed to foster him and now he's in a much better place. Bud has great house manners. He's housebroken, gets along well with his Chihuahua foster brother and pays no attention to the cats. He's crate trained, too. Bud is about 7 to 8 years old and loves laying on the couch and being the good boy he is. Bud is being neutered 11/23 and is available for adoption. If you want to love Bud all the days of his life and give this old guy a great home please call or text Alanda at 979-236-2102.

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 / Weimaraner / Mixed (short coat). Stormy is great with kids and other dogs and does not seem to mind cats. We are currently taking applications for Stromy, although we are still working to get her completely health. The link can be found below. Please read below for more on her story: Our Sad Stormy is looking much better thank you to our partner vet Freeport Veterinary Medical Center and her wonderful foster home, The Stewarts. Her skin is much less inflamed and red from the demodex that she had when found. Sweet girl tested heartworm positive and has already had her first round of treatment and will have her second and final round in the coming weeks. Due to an implanted microchip, we were able to discover Stormy's sad history. She was given away unspayed along with a unneurted male when a family moved and could not take her with them. The person she was given to claimed that they gave her to someone else. Stormy was found dumped in a rural area with her one surviving pup. Unfortunately this is a sad fate for many pitties, especially in the South. We are going to do all we can to get Stormy back into healthy shape and find her a permanent home to ensure this does not happen again.
