Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (medium coat). Hi! Thanks for giving me some attention! I'd like you to know that I've already been spayed or neutered. At Animal Friends, dogs and cats also leave fully up-to-date on shots and microchipped. All I need now is to find someone who will love me. Please ask to meet with an adoption counselor, so we can be properly introduced and talk about what kind of pet you're looking for. We can discuss whether you're looking for a lap pet or a social butterfly, an "only pet" or a furry "sibling" for kids or other animals. Best of all, by adopting from Animal Friends, you make it possible for them to rescue and care for another pet who truly needs help. So, what are you waiting for? Let's sit down together! ***************************************************** Our brindle baby, Shona, came to Animal Friends as transfer from another shelter. She is friendly with people and loves to be near them, but she doesn''t appear to be a big fan of cuddling right now. Shona loves her food and toys, but she can be a little possessive with them so she will need to go to an adult-only home with patient guardians who understand her needs. And although this energetic little girl has been very playful with other dogs, she can have a rowdy playing style with her canine comrades. Shona CANNOT live with cats. But if she can find a home with another fun-loving dog, she would be over the moon! ***************************************************** To learn more about Animal Friends or view adoptable dogs, cats and rabbits, visit www.ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org. Animal Friends is located at 562 Camp Horne Road in the North Hills, just .5 miles from Exit 15 off of I-279N. For details or directions, call 412.847.7000.

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.

I''d like you to know that I''m up to date on all my shots, microchipped, and I''ve already been spayed or neutered. All I need now is to find someone who will love me. Otis arrived at Animal Friends as a transfer from another shelter. It didn''t take long for him to show off his energetic and active personality. So, this handsome young guy will need to find a family with dog experience who will give him lots of exercise and continue his positive reinforcement training. Otis is very friendly with people but can be jumpy when he''s excited. And, Otis has a strong attachment to toys and treats, so his new family members will need to be at least 15 years old. While Otis still needs some work with his manners around other dogs, he might be a good fit for a family who has a canine member with a similar personality to his. If you think you can give Otis the loving home he deserves, come and meet him today!

Andy is an energetic guy who is ready to race into your heart! This sweet and social boy will need an active family that can keep him on the move. Andy is a young, bouncy guy who will need to go to a home with an experienced dog owner who will continue his positive reinforcement training. Since he can be a bit vocal when he''s excited, an apartment may not be a good fit for Andy. He loves playing with other dogs, but Andy can''t go home with cats or rabbits. An ideal family for Andy would be one with children who are 10 years or older. If he sounds like the one for you, come and meet Andy today!
