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: Doberman Pinscher / Chocolate Labrador Retriever (short coat). Please contact Kelly (kellypatriciamorgan@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Application is required - Please go to www.ppnk.org 250.00 Adoption fee This is stunning Phoenix. She's an incredibly sweet and energetic dog. She gets along with all other dogs but would do best in a home without cats. She is housetrained, crate-trained, and walks fantastically in a harness and would make a great walking or running buddy. Working breeds like Dobermans are a little different than other dogs so if you have experience with these, and/or would consider taking a basic training class--that would be helpful. Because of her energy level and size, she would do best in a home without small children but would be a great playmate for older, dog-savvy kids. She's beautiful and will make the right person the perfect best friend....If you think you might be that person, fill out an application on her. Also ask about our week-long sleepovers, available on all dogs over six months! All our animals receive professional veterinary attention including spay/neuter, testing, vaccination, deworming, food and shelter. We only rescue from Animal Control and cannot accept lost, hurt or unwanted pets from individuals. We are a licensed non-profit no-kill shelter.

After my brother (Jake-also listed on this site) and I lost my Mom, we found ourselves searching for a home where we can live out the rest of our lives to our full potential. I love my brother, but he always steals my thunder, so a fresh start is not out of the question for me. I would love to find someone who will play, snuggle and love me with all their heart til the end. My blanket is never too far away and I love to sleep in the bed with you. I wouldn't mind having another dog (No cats please) to play with, as long as he or she can share like I can. Though I am less active than by brother of 13 years, I am a great verminator :-) All our animals receive professional veterinary attention including spay/neuter, testing, vaccination, deworming, food and shelter.
