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.

      Breed: Lhasa Apso
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso (medium coat). 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. Woogie is a nice boy that has been through an awful lot in a short time and is still adjusting. He was picked up as a stray and landed in an overcrowded shelter. He had been on his own long enough to have foxtails embedded in his skin and had to be completely shaved down. Between that and some bouncing around he is still a little confused. He is very sweet and seeks human interaction but isn't quite sure how much he is ready to trust. He is improving daily. He doesn't like to be picked up and being covered (like with a towel after a bath) terrifies him. He needs someone who will just give him time and space with minimal demands until he trusts them. He is leash trained, crate trained, housebroken. Gets along with other dogs. Hasn't really met any cats up close but was interested in meeting them. He has met people of all ages and been great as long as they are slow and gentle and not trying to pick him up. 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.
