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

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Love was just a word until someone cared enough to show me how amazing it could feel. Locked in a concrete cell in a kill shelter, I had little hope of ever knowing love. Then Unleashed and my foster mom saved me, now I am looking for something I never thought I could have- a forever family of my very own. My name is Roxy and I am a two year old Boxer mix. I have been working hard to get ready for a home of my own, including learning to potty outside. I do great in my crate and have learned to walk gently on a leash. I love my doggy friends and get along great with kids. I can be a little shy until I know that you will be nice to me, and men still seem a little scary to me. I will need a family patient enough to let me get comfortable so I can show off my amazing personality. I love to play and have a quirky, squeaky bark. My favorite things are sleeping with my people and chewing on bones. If you have room in your heart and home for me, please contact Unleashed Pet Rescue. Love, Roxy

      Posted Breed: Shepherd (short coat). Bill Belichick is my name, what's yours? Can I call you Mom? Or Dad? You can just call me Bill, or even better, "Good Boy". No one has ever called me that before I came to Unleashed. It makes me feel really loved. You see, I haven't experienced much love in my three years. Somehow I ended up at a scary place where I slept on cement floors and cowered in the corner. It was depressing, but not much different than what I was used to. Then, some strangers drove me to a new place with lots of blankets, a big comfy bed, yummy food and even these strange things called toys. I don't know what to do with the toys, but I really love the food. I'll even eat from your hand if you are patient. Right now I am learning what it's like for humans to take care of me. The people here are nice to me, but since this is all so new and scary, I need lots of reassurance. I love other dogs as long as they don't take my food and are gentle with me. Cats are okay too. I think I might even like kids as long as they are kind. I really hope my friends at Unleashed are right and there is someone out there who will take me home and love me forever. Until then, I will keep my paws crossed. Dogs:yes Cats: yes Kids: yes

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I am a handsome gentleman in search of my forever family! Are you an active family who will enjoy going on long walks, running, and hiking? If so, you are my people! Cheeseballs dipped in ranch dressing are my all-time favorite snacks. Yes, the ranch dressing is absolutely necessary!! Rope toys, Starmark Everlast toys and puzzles keep me occupied while I am a resident at the shelter. I have been at the shelter for a while, so I have a lot of seasoned experience in routine and schedules, and know where to do my business like proper gentleman should!I have energy, but also want to sprawl on the couch and watch tv. I also love to play dress up as you can see! Meeting me in person and adoring all my cuteness is the best way to find out if you and I are a good fit together.....Come on by Unleashed Pet Rescue and ask for me "Crider" the handsome black lab/boxer mix. Ps....I love treats and will do tricks for all treats, but the soft ones are my favorite. KIDS: Yes - older ones DOGS: submissive ladies with a meet and greet CATS: no

      Breed: Labrador Retriever
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever (short coat). Smurf is a 5-year-old 50 lb. German Shepard mix. He is a very sweet and loving dog but had a hard start to life, which has left him weary of moving too fast when meeting new humans. It takes Smurf a few days to warm up to new people, but once he trusts you, all he wants to do is cuddle, play and be with you. He is great in the house, fully potty trained, crate trained, and loves to play fetch and learn. He is smart, loyal and loves other dogs. His favorite time of day is when he gets to go on walks, and he would make an excellent running partner or agility dog. Smurf is currently in training to help him feel more confident around new people and needs an adopter who will continue to work with him. Smurf is good with dogs but would do best in a house without any cats or small children. KIDS: Yes, prefers older DOGS: YES CATS: No
