Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). HI THERE! Oh, sorry didn't mean to shout at you! I am just super duper excited. Do you know why? Do ya, do ya, do ya? It is cuz I am ready for my furever home! How cool is that? Oh my goodness it is so cool! My name isKitty Cat and I am a one year old pretty Pitty. My name is silly, huh? KittyCat, but I am a dog! Get it? Oh man, my friends at Unleashed crack me up. Anywho, I am working on learning to potty outside. I like other dogs so long as I have a bit of time to get to know them, and they don't mind me being the boss. Older kids are the best, I hope I get to have one if my new family! I want to be the only Kitty Cat in the home, if you know what I mean, those furry felines are way too bossy for me! I love to play and to run and to play some more, oh and I talk like a real people when I get excited! I need some time to warm up to men, since there were some in my past that weren't very nice, but I am such a love bug when I get to know you. Well I gotta run, there's lots and lots to do before I get adopted. Come meet me at Unleashed Pet Rescue, pretty please with sugar on top! XOXO, Kitty Cat

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: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi there, I am Jamaal. One year old and kicking it! Originally I was dumped out at Kansas City Animal Control with my friend Chalondra who has been adopted, so now it's just me. I get along with other dogs so bring your fur babies up so we can meet. Children are one of my favorites. They are so cute and I love to give them hugs and kisses. Please do not send me home with those frisky felines, they are so tasty looking. I am good in my room and love to de-fluff stuffed animals. I play nicely with my friendly female canines and also love to cuddle them! Please come see me at Unleashed pet rescue if interested. Dogs: yes, must be female Kids: yes Cats: no

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Bella Lou is a shepherd mix in foster care. She is potty trained but not currently kenneled as she has someone with her all day. She is great with kids and other dogs and would be a wonderful addition to a family. Bella does need to take medication daily for a chronic but controllable condition. She is a special girl that needs a special and loving home. If you think Bella Lou might be the one for you, please contact Unleashed Pet Rescue!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Good Will Hunting here, or as I like to be called, Will. I am a 3 year old pit bull terrier mix. You may recognize all this handsomeness as I resemble Will hunting in the movie I was named after. I don't remember how I ended up at KC animal control but I have been called, "someone's lawn ornament". I am very confused at Unleashed, but I do know that I am well taken care of as I get my own room! I swear the wall barks at me, so obviously I have to bark back to show it who's boss. Don't worry about me as I do not go to the bathroom in my room, nor do I tear it up. One of my favorite things to do when I'm not napping in my room is playing fetch with my kennel moms. Once she throws it, I know to go get it, bring it back to her, and drop it a slight distance from her paws. Now I have to be real with you, I'm not sure how I feel about every dog, but I could learn to like some as I have never had any real encounters with another fellow canine. There are also cats which just confuse me as they look like moving stuffed animals. Children will have to be older as they need to understand I have feelings and can feel pain if they grab my tail or pull my ears. I must be off, hope to see you soon! Cats: can be tested Dogs: No Kids: Yes
