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

      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: Shar Pei. Hi! I'm Fat Tuesday. Well, my foster family calls me Tuesday or Tues. I'm a short stout boy, about 7 years old, and weigh around 50 lbs. I love cuddles and sitting on laps. I am super smart and continue to learn new things every day. I am kennel trained and bark when I have to go outside. I really like outdoor time and enjoy napping in the sunshine. I love taking my time on walks to explore and find new smells. I am a goofy bundle of energy and enthusiasm when it comes to people and playtime. Crinkle toys and playing fetch are my favorites. I get to go to work some days where I get to play with lots of people. Wowza! I just love everybody I've ever meet, but when I join my forever family, I need to be the only pet by your side on our life's adventure together. If you think you have the perfect family home for me, Unleashed would love to hear from you. Dogs: No Cats: No Kids: older

      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

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: USA
      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

      Smurf

      rescue
      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
