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.

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua. Chris is a 5 year old Chihuahua mix with an amazing personality. He loves his people and will tolerate K9 sibilings and his kitty cousins but would rather just be with his human. He enjoys playing with his squeeky toys and stands on his hind legs for attention, much like a kangaroo. Chris would be fine in a house with other animals but not in one with small children. Chris is protective of whoever he is near. If you want a cuddler who is house broken, neutered and up to date on his shots then Chris is the furry family member you have been looking for.

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Rza is a 2 year old bully mix with a heart of gold. This young guy has meshed into his home seamlessly. His easy going lovable nature makes him very versatile and a good fit for any home. He LOVES children. In a foster home with hoards of children of all ages, he is never shy of someone to love and adore him. His foster home is high energy and chaotic, and with guests and household members coming and going he handles a high pace home incredibly well. He doesn't bark when people enter and exit, he wags his tail and greets new friendly faces, he loves to be involved in the home and with the household members. He's also incredibly bonded to his foster brothers, and they are his BEST friends! He's house broken, sleeps in his bed at night (would much rather be in your bed, but will go to his bed when commanded to), non destructive, eats his food next to his foster siblings, and shares well. While he is the smallest of our home, he weighs a good 75 lbs of muscle, but is still sweet and even tempered with small animals and children. We've been working on his basic commands and leash training, but he has a great recall and his easy going nature is great or work with. If you're interested in adding Rza to your family, please submit an online adoption application.
