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.

Rescued from a high kill southern shelter, Dolce is the little white with black spots female, Dougie is tri color male black on face, and Doogie is white and brown and 15 pounds of big boy. They are very hound looking and are about 10 weeks old. Dee is their momma. She looks like a hound/pittie mix. She is little, about 30 pounds, and is a sweetheart. Dee is the momma of these little puppies. She was rescued from a high kill shelter with her babies. She loves being alive and having a second chance! She is a little 30 pound hound pittie mix. Momma Dee has been spayed and treated for heartworm. She is a special needs momma, as she has an old fracture to her front leg and will always limp. It doesn't seem to bother her, though. She gets along with dogs, cats and loves to snuggle with her foster mom on the couch! This is a courtesy listing, so please email Annette at miracleswithpaws@hotmail.com.

      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Jax is the biggest sweetheart you'll ever meet. Pulled from a kill shelter at the last minute skinny and heartworm positive, he has been living in a foster home getting healthy for several months now. He is about 8-10 years old but loves life so much you'd never know he was an older fellow except for the gray around his eyes and mouth. He never meets a stranger and wags constantly. He loves to play but also loves just having a cozy place to sleep. He is smart and learns new routines well. He probably never lived a day indoors in his life until his foster home, but he has adjusted well. He likes other dogs and avoids confrontations (he has a sometimes snippy little foster sister that he loves but avoids when she is moody.) He is very gentle with children and adores them. He just wants a home and family to call his own. If you are interested, please email his foster at mbb3236@yahoo.com for more info. Thank you for considering adoption (especially of a precious and worthy gentleman.) He will repay you with loyalty and love for the rest of his days. (Jax-a-million)
