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: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Livermore, CA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Little princess Blanche is a 10+ yr old terrier mix, we really are not sure on her age, but she is a senior. She is deaf but that doesn't let that stop her any. She loves meal time, to go for short walks, to explore the dog park, car rides, and plush dog beds. She let me a know every night when she wants in our bed, because she can't jump that high any more. Blanche is a very independent dog, no fuss, she enjoys her quiet time lounging most of the day, and a little lap cuddle time but not a lot. She is good with other dogs big and small, but let's them know she is in charge here, she is the queen. She would do best in a home with older kids, or more mellow dogs, she enjoys the senior relaxed life. A mellow home with out door access to a yard would be great for her.as she is not house trained because of surgery she had to undergo but access to outdoor and pee pads will be fine for her . Blanche is spayed, and up to date on vaccines as well. She deserves to have the terrier princess life for her remaining golden years

Autumn especially loves swimming! Autumn loves kids! Autumn is an easy keeper, spayed, quiet in the house, crate trained, and knows her basic obedience. She would do best in a home with no cats. She is dog selective but may do ok with another submissive dog.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Livermore, CA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Daphne is a wonderful girl, full of energy, love and snuggles. Her favorite activities are playing with a ball, tug with her foster brother, playing in her kiddie pool and nice long walks or jogs. Daphne needs to be kept busy while you are away with chew toys or in a crate. She loves her crate this is where she is most comfortable while you are away. she is not good with cats, birds. (no small animals for this girl). Daphne does get along with all types of dogs big or small, male or female, but she does play a little ruff with the smaller breeds. Daphne does know her basic commands sit, stay, wait, off and down. When you first take her out for a walk she does pull a little but eventually calms down. she is also great with kids .
