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.

She wonders where her furever family is and when will they get here? Leslie is a great dog. She is a 46 lb, 3 year old purebred coon hound, who loves taking naps, going for walks and tagging along on car rides. Leslie is house and car trained, gets along with cats and kids and other dogs after a proper greet, otherwise is vocal. She loves belly rubs and sniffing out a new trail on walks. She would be great in a house that allows her to lay around napping, but has time to take her out on long walks/jogs. Hello my name is Leslie. I'm a 3 year old girl, coon hound. I'm a sweet shy girl that is very calm, and quiet in the house. Well quiet as long as you don't mind my snore. My foster believes me to be house trained and kennel trained. I don't like to be kenneled , which isn't big deal as I get to be free in the house most days. I love walks, on the walks I enjoy taking time to sniff around new spots. I also really enjoy belly rubs. I don't like storms, I don't panic to much I just take shelter either in my kennel or a closet. I hope to find a family that is patience wth me to over come my shyness and show you how much love I have to give. If You think I would be a good fit for your family please put a application in and we can set up a meet and greet. I hope to meet you soon!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. To speed up the adoption process, please complete our Pre-Adoption Application. UPDATE FROM FOSTER: My foster mama thinks the name Beauty certainly fits me, she's constantly telling me how gorgeous I am! I have super soft medium length inky black fur and almond shaped brown eyes. And something unique about me--I have a black spotted tongue! My foster mama thinks this and my head and eye shape may indicate I have some Chow Chow or Shar Pei in me, but who knows! Even though I'm closer to a year in age, I'm definitely puppy! I haven't quite ...gotten the hang of potty training, but foster mama and I are working on it. And I love playing with my foster sister! I love to run around foster mama's house with her, nipping her legs--we have so much fun together! I think I'd do well in a house with another dog that isn't too dominant as well as a single dog household. Mama says I need a little training to curb my play biting on humans, but she knows I'm just doing it for affection, along with all the kisses I give her! Overall, I think I'm a pretty awesome catch. I'm gorgeous and affectionate and just need a family committed to training me and loving me as much as I'll love them! She hopes to meet you soon!
