Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. ~~Bodhi is 7 months old, weighs about 45lbs and I would expect him to be around 60-65lbs full grown. Fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Being a puppy still he has a lot of energy but ends every night snuggling with me and my other male pitty. He would be great with an active household with kids over 10 and possibly one that had a similar size dog or larger. I would not recommend cats but he has never been exposed to them. Crate and potty trained. He would be a great running/walking partner and for someone that wants an affectionate dog. Please contact: Rudy Alvarez ralvarez335@yahoo.com (714) 496-9291

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 (short coat). Hello - my name is Jaspar a.k.a. goofball. I’m a big, hunky, five-year-old Pit Bull with a heart of gold. I was so lucky to be rescued because I had a deformed front leg and lots of people pulled together to get me the surgery I desperately needed. Now it’s hard to even guess which leg it was! I love to run, play fetch and splash around in a kiddie pool. When I’m done doing that, you will find me laying belly up in the grass soaking up the sun. I am patiently waiting for the right person to come along that has experience with big guys like me so I can make you laugh and smile every single day. Are you the one? I hope so! Jaspar loves to roll in the grass! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owmdx3f20qQ If you are interested in adopting, please go to our website and complete the adoption application: http://www.icaredogrescue.org/ready-to-adopt/ Adoption application/home check/contract and adoption fee required.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Do you like big cuddly bears? Then I am the dog for you! My name is Meya and I am a 3 year old, 60 pound Staffordshire, Husky and Chow mix who loves to climb into your lap and relax with you. I also love to go for walks and play fetch. I walk well on leash and I am great at bringing the ball back during games of fetch. I have learned the commands sit, down, off, out, and stay, but I am still working on drop and leave it. I am pretty easy to train because I love treats! I also love to be with my people and am happiest when I have them all to myself. I adore older kids and love to give kisses. I have been trained to sleep in a crate at night, but if you will let me I would love to sleep cuddled up with you. But, I prefer to be the only pet in your life; cats are definitely not for me. If you know my breed and are looking for a forever friend, look no further than me Meya!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I'm Sully and I was rescued from a high kill shelter in San Bernardino. I am approximately 7 years old and I weigh 63 pounds. I was born with undeveloped optic nerves, leaving me 100% blind but my blindness does not stop me from being a happy dog that truly loves and appreciates life! I get around just fine like any other "seeing" dog and adapt very well to my surroundings. My favorite things are cuddling, blankets, sun bathing in the yard, love walks, and play time. With enough noise (squeaky ball) I can even play fetch!! My favorite hobby is to suck on blankets all the time and especially love car rides. I get so excited for a ride I jump in the car on my own and politely sit in the back or lay down. I'm also crate trained, potty trained, doggie door trained, and know commands such as sit, stay, and lay down. I have recently gone through some professional training to work on socialization with people and other animals and some insecurities. Due to my blindness, I need a little time to warm up, but with patience I can be an amazing companion! My foster says I'm always entertaining, and just look at my unforgettable smile! Are you ready for this big eared goofball? Here is a link to Sully's Facebook page so you can see what he has been up to in his foster home: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sully-the-blind-pitbull/187423758059634. Aside from being blind, he is in good health, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and micro-chipped. Prefers a home with no cats or young children.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Hound / Mixed. Hello, my name is Wylie (Wile E. Coyote) and I am a 1 year old Pit Bull mix (possibly Pit Bull & Hound) that just loves to go walking, running, playing, exploring and getting attention. After ending up on the streets of LA, I was saved by a good Samaritan and was then picked up by a volunteer from Orange County. Since then, I have been living with him and his 2 foster Pit Bulls in Huntington Beach but I want to find my forever home. I have been neutered, crate trained and I have a clean bill of health. I love attention and I am super eager to gain some new commands. To date, I am potty trained and I understand my name, sit, come and no. I behave very well when on leash and I respond promptly to commands if a critter distracts me. I can be adopted by a single person or a family...more people to give me attention and play and I would love a playmate if you already have a dog. I just want someone or a family who has the time to give me attention and love. I would definitely prefer to live in a house with a yard but as long as I get walked I will be just fine. If you think I would be a great addition to your family, contact my foster dad Paul at paulstiller@yahoo.com I can't wait to come home with you!

Although very fun, sweet and mellow, once he gets to know you, Symba can be very protective his owner with lots of barking. Symba needs to be the only pet at home. I recently took Symba to the vet. He has all his shots for the year. The vet said Symba's teeth are not in the best shape and it's best he eats little kibble size foods that can be moistened. He will come with gentle flea shampoo to be washed with once a week. He will come with a 5 month supply of Frontline. Please contact Shahlla Sherzoy - shahllasherzoy@yahoo.com 925-899-0842

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Meet Tank! He is 2 years old and weighs 65lbs. He was found on the 110 and 105 freeway interchange with another abandoned dog. He was underweight, dirty, hungry, thirsty and desperate for love. Look at him now, he is just the sweetest boy! If you pet him for three seconds, he’ll sit, and then roll right over onto his back! He loves to play with his ball, and is learning to play fetch! He also loves to cuddle! He has a silvery tannish red coat and uniquely gorgeous light eyes! Tank is crate trained, house trained and knows his basic commands. Tank would do best being the only dog in a cat-free home. He is currently neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated and ready to go to his forever home! Please contact Brittany at (310) 918-5348 or fraserbrittany@gmail.com if interested in fostering or giving Tank the loving home he deserves!
