Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Hound (short coat). All of the animals posted on our site have been temperament tested. While not all are in the immediate area, once we have processed and approved your application, we will move the dog to our adoptive area for you to meet, greet and hopefully adopt. Sometimes we will have more than one application on a dog. That does not mean it automatically goes to another family but you should be aware of the fact that until you are approved and set up for the meet/greet.. the dog could get adopted by another applicant. Carmella is a 1 year old hound pit mix. She was adopted by a husband and wife when she was a puppy. The husband and wife split up and she had to go to a rescue. She is a very sweet dog and seems like she can get along with other dogs and cats. She needs to have an owner that is willing to do some obedience training. She has a wonderful personality but has never been worked with. When we got her she had NEVER been vetted (No rabies, No DHLPP, No Bordetella). She was not spayed. She was full of worms. She tested positive for Lymes disease and is currently going through a 30 day Doxycycline treatment. We now have her current on vetting and she is on Tri-fexis for heartworm and flea prevention and also has been microchipped. She is a good dog that needs to find her “good” owner.

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.

Flash is a special boy. He was heartworm positive and underwent treatment when he first came to the rescue. He got very sick from the treatment. It has taken him a while to recover and be his lovable self again but now he is happy and healthy. He is a wonderful house dog, housebroken, neutered, shots up to date, and does not chew things up. Flash says, I am really looking for a home where it is not too active and adults or respective children over 16. Flash needs time to adjust to new environments but will be a good loyal companion if you just give him time to adjust. He needs to be introduced slowly. Flash is selective about his dog friends, he does not like for other dogs to get in his face and again slow introductions will provide him the time he needs to get acquainted and see if he can make a new friend. He loves to play ball and will play fetch with you and then come in and settle down while you relax too. Flash has also had obedience training and has learned a great deal from training. Seriously though, he really does love people and we hope that you are the one who is willing to give him a chance at a forever home. His only requirement is that you get lotsa balls because he is going to require lots of play time..... Remember, no cats, slow introductions to new people and dogs dogs and lotsa balls..... If you are interested in Flash, please contact: rorrcanine@gmail.com

Jeff had a miserable start to life and was abandoned by his family. He was alone and frightened. He has now spent time with his foster and has learned that there are really people out thre who will love him and treat him well. He is now ready for his forever home where he will be loved forever and always. Here is what his foster has to say about him... "Jeff is a beautiful mix who is about 18 months old. His parents say he is the sweetest dog, attentive and always eager to please. Jeff is only being rehomed because his current family is expecting a new baby and he doesn't do well around small children. They are heartbroken over it, but know he will make someone so happy! Jeff loves playing with some other dogs and could run for hours. That being said, he is more than happy to sit by your side on the sofa and curl up for a nap! Due to his timid and sometimes fearful personality, he would not be adopted to a family with children under 12. He has some dog selectiveness so a mature calm dog with be best to teach him confidence. Jeff requires a fenced yard just to make sure he does not get around smaller children or dogs that may make him fearful. NOTE: We want Jeff to go to a home with a physical fence so he can play freely and safely. Also, Jeff does not interact well with other dogs when he is on a leash. He will become agitated if he meets another dog while leashed. Most of the problem seems to be solved if he is not on a leash. He seems to feel defenseless when restrained.

If you are looking for an easy to love, sweet dog, Travis is your guy. His foster says "he is a laid back dog and he likes his walks. He doesn't jump and very calm. He is wonderful with other dogs." This is one good ole boy, ready to play sniff the grass in the yard and stretch out in the shade. This great temperament comes naturally to Travis, who is hoping to enjoy life to the fullest with his own person or family who live in the country. Travis is currently located in Berryville, VA. If you are a hound lover, let Travis become your new love. A SPECIAL NOTE TO YOU FROM HIS FOSTER: Travis is a wonderful Treeing Walker Hound who has had a rough past and is enjoying life more each day. He is great with other dogs, is too interested in cats to have one in the house with him, fine with school age children, but has never been around babies. He will need a fenced yard and 3 walks daily. He likes a soft dog bed and sleeps in a crate all night. He should not be crated other than that--except for car rides. Travis would be best with someone at home with him and with a dog friend. He has some health issues due to being hit by a car, but doesn't let this hold him back. He is laid back and happy to sleep away the day between walks and yard time. He is a former hunting dog, so pulls hard when in hunting mode and needs to be walked in a harness. Also, since he is still learning about living in a house he will sometimes chew up stuff. If you are the special person who wants to give Travis the care and companionship he needs and deserves please contact RORR. His foster mom will be happy to meet with you and talk to you about Travis. Interested in Travis? Please contact: rorrcanine@gmail.com *** Click here to sponsor this dog! ***

Heather is a young, VERY sturdy lady. The wind will never blow this one over! She has a strong body and is an active dog, so she would be the perfect fit for an active person or family. She would be a fantastic hiking partner and would like lots of outdoor play. A physically fenced backyard will be needed for her, so she can run and play safely. Eager to learn and with an extra loyal heart, she is going to be a perfect best friend and partner to an individual or a family. Full of life and fun, Heather is hoping every day that "her" family is out there and will come soon so she can get "game on!" She is the type of dog who will be the life of the party. AND the light of YOUR life. A SPECIAL NOTE TO YOU FROM HER FOSTER: She's a perfect medium size, 58 lbs, super pretty with insanely soft fur. She's still a puppy (a little over a year old) so she has tons of energy, but she's a quick learner and very eager to please. Comes when called, sits on command, good on the leash, and 100% house-trained. Calm and quiet in the crate. Most affectionate dog we've ever met! Loves everyone. . Great with sturdy children, should be at least 8 just because of her playful strength (she'll probably jump up and lick them). She needs slow introductions with other dogs and will want to play rough. She may be ok with very dog savvy cats but would not recommend. She's a dream dog for anyone who's looking for a young dog to train and play with and cuddle.

"Chester" is an adorable senior male Hound mix who made his debut at the HSOV on February 10, 2016. This handsome gentleman has a tan short smooth coat with cream highlights, subtle black shading on his back, bowed front legs, a long tail, and a darling Hound face with soulful brown eyes and large floppy ears. "Chester" has a sweet, loving disposition and has become a favorite of our kennel techs and volunteers. Everyone has fallen in love with this guy J "Chester" loves attention and looks forward to walks and spending time with his fan club members. He was neutered on February 23, 2016 and was also given rabies vaccine. "Chester" weighs 50-55 lbs. and could easily gain a few pounds to fill out his slim physique. He appears to be housebroken. These updated photos were taken on March 21, 2016, and it seems that "Chester" keeps getting more handsome each time we see him! He was chosen to participate in an adoption event at Pet Supplies Plus in Vienna WV on March 19th, and we were soooo proud of him. "Chester" was treated like a rock star and so many people were oohing and aawing over him as he pranced around the store wearing his cute pastel 'Adopt Me' bandana. He did extremely well with other dogs and crowds of people (including lots of small children). His volunteer date for the event brought "Chester" back to the shelter with a brand new toy (a bright orange plush ball) that he had chosen himself. We took a short video of him carrying his new toy around in his mouth and posted it on our facebook page. We introduced "Chester" to some of our free-roaming shelter mascot kitties when he was outdoors for photos, and he simply ignored them J However he does like to chase small animals so he should go to a home with NO small animals or cats just to be safe. This sweet boy truly deserves a home where he will be spoiled in the manner to which he would like to become accustomed. If you are interested in adopting Chester, please contact: Celeste at cr_ridgway@yahoo.com

Bruno is a super cute, corgi size adoptable. Just look at those radar ears! When Bruno was surrendered to the shelter, his owners stated that they could not afford to care for him. We could see that Bruno had a lot of life and love left to give, so we pulled him into foster care. Bruno is diabetic and does require daily insulin injections, but the cost is quite reasonable. Despite having vision loss, Bruno navigates his foster home and yard expertly. We love a senior and hope that someone out there will have a soft spot for a loving special needs boy. Bruno prefers calm dogs and older, calm children. If you would like to learn more about Bruno, please email us at: opundo@operationunderdog.org
