Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Please contact Lauren (LaurensZoo.application@yahoo.com), (251) 402-3039 for more information about this pet. Meet Kinsey! I LOVE THIS DOG! Great personality, total social butterfly, lovely attitude, lovely dog, and very pretty other than the horrible home chop-job on her ears :( Kinsey is a 3-4y, chocolate tri-color Pitbull. She is 45-ish lbs, crate-trained, dog/cat/kid social. GREAT DOG. She is just a lovey, squishy, sweet and affectionate love bug. She'll be a great choice for just about anyone . Only negative - can climb a 4' fence if left unattended. She prefers to be with her people, not outside in a yard all alone. If you are interested in adopting, the adoption donation is $100 and covers full vetting (vaccinations, dewormings, spay/neuter, heartworm testing, etc) prior to adoption. E-mail LaurensZoo.application@yahoo.com for more info! ***Please check your Spam Folder for our reply. We send out a lot of e-mails and have recently been getting complaints about not promptly responding to inquiries. Several servers filter our responses as Spam*** Availability Inquiries: If the dog is still posted then he/she is available. We may have already accepted applications but have not chosen one yet. Please send yours if you'd like to be considered. A "pending" status means that the pet is spoken for, but the adoption has yet to be finalized. This pet may become available again if the adoption is not completed within a reasonable amount of time. Location: We do not have a physical location where all of our dogs are housed nor do we have "business hours". We are made up of a network of private foster homes and sometimes use boarding. Once we have received your application, we can provide you with details and arrange a "meet and greet" when possible. We require an application before any meetings will be arranged. Cats/Kids and Dogs: If we don't specifically mention cats/kids in the bio then we don't know exactly how a particular dog will react to them. If we suspect there will be aggression then we will say no to cats/kids. However, every dog needs to be introduced correctly to a house with cats or kids in it. Each dog and each cat/kid will have different chemistry together so there is no way to tell how they will act until the dog is in the home. Puppies less than one year of age can always go to a home with cats or kids, but they too need to learn. With a little effort, dogs and cats/kids can live together...but don't forget that dogs will be dogs so sometimes you will need to step in. Out-of-state Adoptions: We will consider adopting to all states, but transport options are limited to some areas. Adopters are responsible for all additional fees associated with transporting a pet out-of-state.

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.

      Sarina - 4lb...

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Mobile, AL
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Please contact Lauren (LaurensZoo.application@yahoo.com), (251) 402-3039 for more information about this pet. Sarina is a 3y longhair Chihuahua that was surrendered after she had sustained an injury to her back from being dropped. She has several compressed discs in her lower back. We initially starting pain meds and steroids plus strict cage rest, but she had been too long without proper medical care. The damage to her spine is permanent though very slight. She knuckles-over occasionally due to lack of sensation in her toes. Her gait in the rear is not quite normal, but the average dog-owner likely wouldn't even notice it. She will most likely develop pre-mature arthritis. We have started her on a joint supplement to slow any degeneration. There are no long-distance marathons in her future. She needs a cushy couch-potato or purse-baby lifestyle. She has a lovely little spirit, tenacious yet sweet, and she deserves a REAL FAMILY. If you are interested in adopting, the adoption donation is $300 and covers full vetting (vaccinations, dewormings, spay/neuter, heartworm testing, etc) prior to adoption.

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Mobile, AL
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Lauren (LaurensZoo.application@yahoo.com), (251) 402-3039 for more information about this pet. Rez is a 1y Boxer/Pitbull X that has spent her teenage years being an mom :( She is still very much a puppy behaviorally and is looking forward to becoming a member of someone's family. She is okay with other dogs after proper introductions. She is fine with the cats in her foster home, but outdoor strays are a different story and will be chased. She is completely crate-trained and working on basic obedience. She is a bouncy girl (those Boxer genes) so we would not recommend a home with full-time small children until Rez has completed an obedience class and has better manners. She isn't aggressive AT ALL and has been around children, but she is 60-ish pounds of exuberant puppy - and accidents can happen. If you are interested in adopting, the adoption donation is $150 and covers full vetting (vaccinations, dewormings, spay/neuter, heartworm testing, etc) prior to adoption.

      Molly

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Mobile, AL
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (medium coat). Please contact Lauren (LaurensZoo.application@yahoo.com), (251) 402-3039 for more information about this pet. If you've ever owned a Chihuahua then you know that they are typically one or two owner sort of dogs. They bond to their selected person(s) and may tolerate random other people, but they will certainly not be friendly or social with aforementioned persons. That's Molly. She doesn't much like people. Having said that, she LOVES LOVES LOVES me (her foster mom) and she LOVES her foster dad. She allows basic handling by people whom she has been properly introduced to, but she does NOT like strangers - which is a HUGE problem when we consider a dog's adoptability. Now, Molly could technically live with me forever, but that means that my ability to save additional dogs is now diminished by one (and regardless of her small size she still takes up a foster spot). So... Molly, like all of my other foster dogs, needs to transition to a new family. A Chihuahua-savvy home would definitely be the best fit, but an adopter with a good working knowledge of dog behavior would also be considered. If you haven't moved on to another adoptable dog profile yet, here's the great stuff about Molly: she is 8lbs and a beautiful cream longhair. She doesn't fight you over basic grooming like combing, bathing, and minor trimming (sanitary, paw pads, grinch-toes) so if you are the DIY type then you can easily maintain her lovely locks at home. Molly is completely crate-trained and does well with house-training when kept to a schedule. She will be 6yo in June and has no health problems other than the typical 'toy mouth' that will require professional dental cleanings (she just had this done last month). Molly is dog social but much prefers human companionship and completely ignores our cats. She is not aggressive with strangers, but she is likely to remove herself from large groups of people. She took a good three weeks before she trusted us, but now she is a total cuddlebug. She just needs a mom/dad who is willing to invest a little time building a relationship with her :) If you are interested in adopting, the adoption donation is $150 and covers full vetting (vaccinations, dewormings, spay/neuter, heartworm testing, etc) prior to adoption.
