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: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Hi, my name is Joy! People often say that after one look at my smiling face they know exactly where I get my name from! I have such a love for life and never pass up the opportunity to go on an adventure. Some of my favorite things to do are fetching tennis balls with my humans for hours and hours, playing in the water on hot summer days and carrying around sticks that are larger than I am! I'm also a great running partner, only taking the occasional stop to munch on some grass or sniff some fire hydrants. Not only am I super active, I love to learn! So far I know 'sit', 'down', 'stay', 'paw', 'drop it' and my personal favorite, 'dance'! As long as you bring the treats I promise I can learn even more. I would much rather spend my time with my humans than other dogs or cats so a home where I can be the only furry friend would be perfect for me. In exchange, I promise to provide endless amounts of laughs, cuddles and slobbery kisses! I have been waiting at the shelter for over a year to find my new best friend, will it be you? Contact my friends at All Breed Rescue at 802-489-5889 or allbreedvt@allbreedrescuev t.com to learn more about me! ❤

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Bubbles is a very affectionate girl. She loves people, other dogs (she is even good with her foster grandma's chi!) and is good around birds. She is a big cuddler and will try to get a spot near someone on the couch! She is slightly suspicious of new people but is fine once she realizes they are supposed to be here. She adores food, treats, crumbs, you name it. She does a twirling, happy dance at meal time. She is a low rider and truly believes that her legs are longer than they really are, she sometimes therefore miscalculates landings on beds or sofas. She is not destructive at all and does better left out of a crate than in. As much as she likes other dogs, she would probably be just as happy in a people only house as they are obviously her true love! She does know sit and come. She has a beautiful thick, glossy black coat and big brown eyes. Although she does have the wide, short nose of a pit, she has a mush face and wrinkly jowls. She does not seemed bothered by water in the least and we will see if she likes to swim as the weather gets warmer. She can be left alone but as she loves her humans so much she would do best in a home where she did not have to be left home all day every day by herself. She is medium energy, will gladly play as much as someone wants to, but is also happy to chill on the couch. Apply for Bubbles today!
