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: Rottweiler / Black and Tan Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Levi. I was previously adopted by a couple who couldn't keep me although it was no fault of my own. I am a smart boy that knows sit and down. I am potty trained and crate trained. I am a bit shy so I don't do well at adoption events they scare me. I rather meet you at your home or a park and get to know ya. I am a fun boy and have the cutest little nub that you have ever seen. Please give me a chance to love you. Oh I almost forgot I love to cuddle and share the couch with you. I get along with other dogs and cats most of the time. Please give me a chance.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). She is smart and tactical, but she has her quirks. She is a runner so keeping her away from open doors by putting her into a kennel is a must! But that'll come with her when she's adopted since she has one of her very own! Princess needs to be in a home with no cats and does best if the other dogs are submissive. She is full of energy and loves to play and give kisses! Princess wants to know if you can be her hero and her your sidekick, she is already wearing her cape!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Gertrude is around 3 to 4 years old. She is spayed and healthy. She is very loving, and listens when she is told a command. She is potty trained. She loves her belly rubbed and will snuggle up next to you if you allow her to. She loves to just hang out and relax, and also loves to run around and get her exercise.
