Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Petey is a handsome, wonderful, energetic ball of pit bull life who's going to make some lucky person a very happy camper :-)) He gets along well with other dogs, is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on all of his shots. He is not clingy, but never turns down an opportunity for a good snuggle. He loves to run and play off leash so an owner with a back yard would be ideal, but he would also do well in any active home looking for a running or hiking buddy! If you are interested in adopting Petey, please email Allen at allensovory@gmail.com

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: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: West Hollywood, CA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Meet Ted, King of the Wigglebutts! This 66 pound sweetheart is an absolute joy to be around. Though the shelter estimated Ted to be 6 years young, our vet believes him to be closer to 3. His gorgeous soulful eyes will make you fall in love and give in to his big sloppy kisses in seconds. He enjoys going for walks, has excellent leash manners, has mastered basic commands and he enthusiastically socializes with other dogs of all sizes. We rescued Ted from a very neglectful breeder's home in Riverside where he was living in filth with over 25 other dogs, but it is clear he has since forgotten all about his unfortunate past. Ted's resilience and forgiving nature will amaze you. This silly boy falls in love with everyone he meets. Ted is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier. Stella is a 3-Year-Old Female, American Staffordshire Terrier, 60-65 lbs. Housetrained, Micro-chipped and up-to-date on shots. Stella is young and healthy with a gorgeous, flawless coat, movie-star smile (great teeth!) and a vibrant personality. She adores children and women. Walks beautifully on the leash, no pulling. Takes treats gently. Knows sit and down commands. Neither toy or food aggressive. Loves car rides and tolerates heavy car traffic on walks, cyclists, skateboarding and other loud noises well. Not a barker. She’s a medium energy dog who would be an excellent walking/running partner. She will do best as the only dog in the home with yard access and wants to be close to her family. To see her video go to www.facebook.com/AdoptStella. A team of good Samaritans are paying for Stella to get 10 continuous days of socialization with other dogs and training by a top pro trainer in Los Angeles and we will provide some training for Stella when she is adopted by a new owner located in the Los Angeles area. Stella is a courtesy post, not for adoption through Wags and Walks. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Stella please contact Diana at 310-287-1530.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: West Hollywood, CA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Honey is as sweet as her name implies. At 2 years old, she found herself pregnant and at a high kill shelter. Rescued with her puppies shortly after they were born, Honey was a nurturing and responsible mom. She is now ready to find her forever home where she will be as nurtured and loved. Honey is a beautiful brown with white markings Pit Bull weighing 46 pounds, but she came to us underweight so should be closer to 50-55 pounds. She can be timid when first meeting new people, but slowly comes out of her shell to show her gentle and easy going nature. Honey is healthy, up to date on vaccinations and will be spayed and microchipped before going to her forever home.

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: West Hollywood, CA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. Henry is a handsome 8 year old German Shepherd mix weighing a solid 98 pounds. He is potty trained, crate trained and has completed comprehensive training where he has learned to walk well on leash, as well as basic commands including sit and "place." In fact, he would stay in his "place" for hours if asked, but we don't recommend that since he makes such a wonderful hiking buddy and companion in the home. Henry loves his walks so much, he performs a happy dance for his fosters before he heads out. Though the shelter felt Henry was 8, he definitely has the zest for life of a much younger dog. Henry will thrive in a loving home willing to continue with his training and boundaries. He would prefer to be the only dog in the home and would do best in a home with children over 12. Henry is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, neutered and microchipped.
