Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi, I'm Bellamy and I am THE HAPPIEST dog in the world. Do you like to wake up slowly to smooshy-faced kisses over a cup of coffee and Good Morning, America? If so, I'm your man! I'm quite a snuggler and love to give big huge Pit Bull hugs. I've never met a stranger. I'm also great at entertaining you while I entertain myself. Foster mom just loves when I run zoomies up and down the stairs tossing my toys to myself. I completed a Canine Good Citizen class with my foster mom and got a certificate! It was fun and I love to focus on my human and show you what I can do. I've been through some rough times and at one point broke my elbow (vets say it was repeatedly) and it has grown back wrong. It has been fully evaluated, but vets think I'm not in pain and that nothing should be done to correct my occasional limp. It does not affect my ability to run, jump and play. I'm neutral with other dogs when I'm on leash, but I can get a little overly excited sometimes, so foster mom thinks it would be best if I was the only dog in the home. If you would like to meet me, please complete an online Adoption Application at www.outpaws.org/adopt.

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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Littleton, CO
      Posted Breed: Newfoundland Dog / Shepherd / Mixed (long coat). Hello, my name is Shrek. I'm a sweet 6 year old Potcake mix from the Humane Society of Grand Bahamas. My first couple of years on the island were pretty bad. I had an owner who neglected and abused me. One day, a tourist from Austria so me, my brother and sister and called the shelter to see if they would take us in. They said yes, so we lived safely at the shelter for years. Unfortunately, I had suffered some type of traumatic injury and my owner had gotten no treatment for me. My hind end doesn't work so well, but OutPaws is taking me to a specialist to see if there's a surgery that will fix my hind legs.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Littleton, CO
      Posted Breed: Chow Chow / Mixed (long coat). This handsome fella is Fox. Fox is a Chow/Potcake mix from the Humane Society of Grand Bahama. This sweet boy has been living at the shelter since 2010--barring a short period of time when he was adopted by a local doctor, then returned in horrible condition. Things were fine as Fox was bonded with his mom and always had her by his side. But then, the unthinkable. His mom passed away. Everyone one he has ever tried to love, he has lost. Fox has lost hope--hope of having a home to call his own and hope of having a forever friend. We wanted Fox to have a chance of happiness. We want to turn his world around. Fox is coming to Denver in hopes of finding his very own forever home. If you think it could be you, apply online at www.outpaws.org/adopt and tell us why you think you may be Fox's forever family.

      Location: Littleton, CO
      Posted Breed: Saint Bernard / American Bulldog / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, my name Chip! My foster mom says that I am the class clown. I do tend to be one of those guys. . . . you know the type--the one that just can't keep himself from tossing a toy through the air or tripping down the stairs or over my own paws--anything that gets a laugh. I have lots of energy and can find amusement just about anywhere. But I'm also an amazing snuggler. Oh, and did I mention I have the cutest little underbite. I get along great with other dogs and enjoy doggie daycare. I'm probably about 2 years old and who the heck knows what my mom and dad were cause I'm just an interesting Heinz 57. I'd make a fantastic active companion for big adventures. I've learned my basic obedience and walk pretty good on a leash. I'm crate-trained and housebroken. I'd love to go hiking and camping and running. You name it. I'm in!!! Do you think you'd like to meet me? If so, please apply for me--Chip-- at www.outpaws.org/adopt

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (long coat). Hi, I am Katarina. I'm a senior German Shepherd girl. The vets say I'm at least 12-13 years old. I came from a hoarding case in New Mexico where our owner left suddenly leaving us with no food or water and locked in a house. I'm happy to be in a foster home where I'm loved and cared for. I'm a little weak in the hind end, but otherwise I still get around pretty well.
