Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Chloe is just over a 1 year old and at just 43 pounds is a Petite Pit Bull Princess! She is super friendly to all people and good with other dogs with proper introductions. She is up to date on shots and spayed. . Chloe's foster family just adores her! She is very smart, of course, and learned basic commands in just a few days. She is crate trained, house trained, LOVES to go for walks and rides very well in the car​. She is still a puppy with lots of puppy energy so she would do best in a home with a fenced yard and room for her to run. Chloe is a big cuddle bug who happily flops on her back for belly rubs! This little girl will make her forever family feel the love​! http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org

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.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hope was rescued over a year ago from a well under a house in GA. The owner didn't even know the well existed. Hope spent 4 days dow ... n there before she was discovered. Since then she's gotten healthy & is ready for her forever home! Here's what foster mom says: Hope is great for first time dog owners. She is sweet gentle and loving with all people. Hope loves to walk and would do best with an active owner but is also happy to lay around all day and shadow you around the house. She is truly a gentle giant and would be the perfect family dog. She is loyal as can be and wants nothing more than to be your best friend! Hope loves adventures as you can see! Hope's foster mom adores her but just took a new job & wont be around as much which she knows isn't fair to Hope! Hope is great as a solo dog or would do best with small males. It does take her time to get used to new dogs, so would need slow intros. Hope loves kids, but is not a fan of cats. She's about 3 1/2 years old now! She's a beautiful lab/pit mix.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adopt Millie! We saved Millie - she had been fo und malnourished down south and brought to a high kill rural shelter. Millie is now thriving in a foster home, however what she really wants is a forever home.. Here's what her foster mom says: Millie is very friendly and polite with all people and all dogs. Her entire body wiggles when she greets you. She doesn't jump, walks nicely on the leash without pulling and doesn't bark. Millie is very very friendly and gentle with our big cat and doesn' t chase him. She gets along very well with our own dog, loves to play and takes herself into her crate for a nap or the night. She is crate trained and now potty trained as well... Millie is wonderful and kind and extremely well behaved.. She is around 2 years old and 50 lbs.. She really can fit into most any home.. She is still looking for her forever home, so please consider Millie!

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. SusiQ is currently located in the 03773 area code. She is up to date on shots and good with all people and other dogs. She is most certainly a hound-mix, she loves her walks and scenting her way thru the woods. She rarely barks, but when she hears the coyotes in the distance at night, will occasionally join in The Big Aroo. Susie Q is a country girl at heart, the city life is too overwhelming for her so a country home in a rural setting would be best. Susie is allergic to cigarette smoke so a non smoking home is a must. She is a humorous girl, a little bit in her own world, and happy to join in on any adventure or car trip you may be heading out for. SusiQ came into Rescue having great difficulty with Trust. But as she has grown to trust her foster mom, she is more bold approaching people in public, and trusting that they will treat her as her foster mom does. If you would like to adopt Susie Q, please put your application in here: http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). In search of forever.... Rescued from the NYC ACC, staff and volunteer fave Jimmy is a friendly, low-energy Pittie mix who is a big fan of sunbathing, belly rubs, and Kongs. He needs an owner who is experienced with large dogs and understands that he may not get along well with other male dogs, but he played well with most of the female dogs he has met in the care center and is friendly with people. Due to his mellow nature, Jimmy could easily be a family pet or go home with a person who has a busy schedule. If you have lots of love, a few minutes for a walk or romp each day, and a warm spot on the couch, Jimmy is your guy!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Lori (loriwiley725@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. This super sweet and friendly 10 year old black lab mix girl is Manchester. She is up to date on shots and spayed. Manchester gets along well with all people and other dogs. Cats are an unknown. Her shelter advocate states that she climbed right into her lap and curled up. Poor Manchester, dumped at a high kill shelter with a skin condition, by the only family she ever knew, just thrown away like she didnt matter. Our hearts broke when we saw the pictures of the is sad, neglected girl and we scooped her right up. She will be feeling better very soon, and we would love to have a FOREVER home waiting for her.
