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.

Adoption fees vary from 50$ to 350$. Application and home check required prior to adoption. Serena is a 4 year old Terrier mix. She is technically small but only about a pound away from being a medium dog (she is just under 20 pounds). Serena is a fun dog with a ton of energy. She knows sit, down, stay, wait, walks well on a leash and will fetch until she drops. Although realistically, you will drop before she does. She is also housebroken and crate trained. She is looking for an active person or family who can keep her busy. She likes sturdy chew toys (she loves anything ball shaped and we recommend Kong type toys for her) to chew on and also loves tennis balls though she tends to destroy them faster than you can give them to her once the fetch game stops. She is ok with dogs her size though she is not really interested in interacting with other dogs. She prefers humans to keep her occupied. If you are looking for a go everywhere, do everything athlete, Serena might be your perfect match. We don't recommend a home with children under 7 because she plays hard. She ignores cats. She loves anyone willing to throw a ball. Alll that said, she is also good for a snuggle and can be a super sweet and affectionate dog as well. Adoption fee $150

My name is Squirt and I want very much to be a sweet boy but I am very scared. If you move too quickly I might nip. But I would rather not. I came from a home with 28 other dogs. Yes, you read that right. And no one knew we existed until our owner passed away. Which left us with nowhere to go but the shelter. Thankfully we all made it into rescue and now I am learning that people are ok. But it is taking some time. And if I get adopted, I will need patient and understanding people who are willing to take the time to teach me the world isn't such a scare place. It might take awhile. My foster Mom says it's ok..sometimes hoarder dogs just have to be given lots of time to figure things out. Adoption fee $250.

She LOVES being held and snuggled and also loves to play with toys. She is leash trained, house broken, knows some basic commands.

      Breed: Shih Tzu
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tacoma, WA
      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu. Please contact Violet (drawsdogs@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. All dogs are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. They are also microchipped, fully vaccinated and treated for parasites. Adoption fees vary from 50$ to 350$. Application and home check required prior to adoption. PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION IN IT'S ENTIRETY PRIOR TO SENDING IN AN INQUIRY! This is Flicker, Flicker is a 7 yer old Shih Tzu. She is adorable and happy. She absolutely LOVES other dogs. She is crate trained. She is housebroken as long as she gets outside when she needs to. Frequent trips outside with canine pack members is a huge help. Flicker loves to share your food, her food, anyone's food..she enjoys treats a LOT. Having her around cannot help but make you smile. But that said, Flicker has a pretty big down side. You see, Flicker came from a puppy mill. And after being used as nothing but a puppy producer for the first five years of her life, she was cast off like so much garbage. She never left her cage while she was bred over and over at every cycle. Her human interactions consisted of being fed and watered, bred, and having her puppies taken away. Because of this, Flicker might not ever completely trust people. We can touch, pet, bathe and groom her but she would really rather we didn't. Though she is happy to dance around our feet for a treat. She will follow us around and play peekaboo around corners but will avoid physical contact whenever she can. If you are looking for a cuddly companion for yourself, Flicker might not ever be that dog. If you have a dog that needs a canine companion, or even a couple of dogs, Flicker could make a great addition.

He has the potential to be an excellent dog in the right home that can set boundaries with kindness. He is intelligent and well behaved. Housebroken, leash trained, knows sit, rides well in a car. He is also a handsome dog with stunning blue eyes. He will look you square in the face and croon to you when he wants/needs something. But is generally pretty quiet.
