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: Hound / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). This sweet guy is about 40 lbs., gets along with other dogs, cats, chickens, etc. He really is a champ! He is looking for a family that will give him the love he deserves. He is about 3 years old. He was found on the highway and the person who found him threatened to give him to his brother, a person known to do some horrible things with dogs, so our Good Samaritan rescuers in Georgia took him even though they are full. He is neutered, up to date on his shots and heartworm negative. Please contact bhearn@pstel.net for an application and more information.

      Location: North Creek, NY
      Posted Breed: Hound / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Crystal has been in a rescue that is having hard times, and she is going to have to go into a kennel. She looks like a hound and pittie mix - she is about 65 pounds, a very sweet brindle and loves everyone. Her mellow,look is typical of her loving personality. Hounds are the sweetest dogs in the world,and pitties used to be knowN as the "Nanny dog," so she has great genes!! Because she is big and friendly, unless your young children are used to being knocked down by dogs as mine were, we recommend over 7 or 8 years old, or a larger younger child. She is spayed and up to date on her shots. If you are interested in giving sweet Crystal a home, please email Debbie at debbus57@hotmail.com. Thank you for adopting!

      Age: Young
      Location: North Creek, NY
      Posted Breed: Vizsla / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Nancy (dunnpb61@msn.com) for more information about this pet. This is Penny!! She is about 18 months old, and a sweetheart! I pulled her from the shelter right before they were killing. She is a wonderful, active girl who needs an active person or family. The more I get to know her, the more I thought she was definitely lab (she loves to collect our items!) but something else. I think she has a lot of Vizsla in her. Her energy level points to that, as does her temperment. Penny has a loving, friendly temperament. She loves everyone and everything - dogs, cats, kids, people! She is about 50 pounds and is already spayed, has all her shots and is ready for your home. She was food protective of her food with the other dogs, but we have been working on that, and she is 99.9% better about it as she realizes that food is always available here. Still, she needs to go to a family who will continue working with her on this and I wouldn't adopt her to anyone with very young children, as I haven't seen her with toddlers near her food and I don't now if she would see a very young child as human or part of her pack. Penny needs to go to an active family, couple or single. This is not a couch potato dog. If you are looking for a hiking partner, a swimming buddy or a running buddy, she would be perfect for you. She would be fine with a family who would take her with them, but please don't consider her if you crate your dog while you work, and then when you go out after work. This would be a terrible life for her. If you can give Penny the life she deserves, please email me at dunnpb61@msn.com for an application. Thank you for considering a rescue dog.
