Carl American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Young • Male • Medium 1.5 years old ~ 40lbs UTD on vaccinations ~ neutered ~ microchipped Located in Franklinville , NY About Carl: According to his foster mom, Carl is a sweetie who loves giving and getting love.

He is a very social dog who loves everyone he meets and loves to run and play. ​ Carl is crate trained, housebroken, walks nicely on leash, and enjoys the company of dogs and children.

He is an active boy and needs a home where he can get plenty of exercise.

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 / Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). PeeWee American Pit Bull Terrier & Rat Terrier Mix Adult • Male • Medium 5 years old • 35 lbs UTD on vaccinations • neutered • microchipped Located in Gloucester, NJ About PeeWee: PeeWee's foster mom says he is the oddest guy! He is silly and sweet with lots of personality quirks. With a medium energy level and the ability to keep himself amused, combined with the fact that he is non-destructive when being left alone, he is a dream dog for just the right person. He loves giving LOTS of kisses and spending time with his family. He has the funniest personality to match his goofy ears. PeeWee is a little shy when meeting new people but he quickly warms up and wants to make friends. He is very dog selective and would be best as the only dog in the house. He doesn't like being in a crate but is very well behaved when being left alone. He is housebroken and walks nicely on a leash although he much prefers hanging out in the backyard over going for a walk. PeeWee's perfect forever family is one that has a yard for him to romp around in and has experience with terriers. Children junior high age or older as he can be timid.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Lucy is a 5 year old, 40 lb, American Pit Bull Terrier Mix. Her foster mom says she is the best snuggler you will ever meet, she prefers to lay on you rather than with you. Lucy loves everyone she meets including kids and other dogs. Lucy is house trained, crate trained, and walks nicely on the leash. She knows “sit” and “wait” and is energetic but well behaved in the house. Lucy has some guarding issues with food, water bowls, and toys, which her foster family is working on correcting. We believe that Lucy would be best with children 13 or over. No other pets are recommended unless you have experience with dogs with guarding issues.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Magnolia American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Young •Female • Medium 2 years old ~ 55 lbs UTD on vaccinations ~ spayed ~ microchipped Located in Enfield, CT About Magnolia: Magnolia had a very rough start in life. She came into the shelter with a handful of her "siblings" as part of an abuse case. She was the only dog who was deemed safe enough to adopt out. When she wound up on the euthanasia list we knew we had to save this girl and finally give her a chance at a happy life full of love. According to her foster mom she is doing much better with trusting and has grown to love them. Due to her past living in a house of horrors she is leery of strangers, and other dogs. Her housebreaking is a work in progress but she is crate trained and paper trained. She pulls a bit when on leash. Magnolia is a special girl who likes to "talk" to her foster mom and loves to play with her toys. The prefect forever home for Magnolia is one that has the time and patience to work on gaining her trust and to continue her training. She needs a family that are experienced dog owners with no children or other dogs.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). According to his foster mom Jake has the most beautiful bluish/greyish eyes and big goofball, he likes to play all day long. He is good with other dogs of his size or larger; he lives with German shepherd and another Pitbull and is very respectful of both. Small dogs as well as cats might not be a good idea as he thinks they are toys to play and might unintentionally hurt them. Capitan has been going to professional training and has been in a group with 10 or more dogs and plays well with all. He is crate trained and house trained and never had accidents in the house. He loves people; his favorite thing is to snuggle on a couch or a bed with his human. He walks well on a leash and knows sit, shake stay, and his favorite command is to come, when he hears the command he gets so happy that somebody is calling him and runs as fast as he can. He also likes to walk on a treadmill if somebody offers him a treat for it. The perfect family for Jake is one that has time to continue to enforce his training and make sure he gets enough exercise. No cats or small dogs please and children middle school age or older.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Nilla came into the shelter as a stray so her past is unknown. An average rated beauty, she quickly caught the attention of a foster who wanted to save her life. Unfortunately for Nilla this person would just be another who would disappoint her. Rejected by her foster for being “too strong” and wanting to chase cats Nilla was moved to boarding after only being in their house for 10 minutes. Based on her evaluation at the shelter we believe that Nilla would do well with an average family who has the ability/strength to handle a large dog. No small dogs or cats please and children middle school age or older just due to her size.
