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 Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier. My name is Pillow, and I am a two-year-old Pit mix. I have been in foster care looking for my forever home for almost a year and a half! I am a good boy, but I have had a rough past. My foster parents saved me from the "kill list" from New York City Animal Control. While they love me dearly, they know that the right thing is to find my perfect forever home. The good news is I am super snuggly! I LOVE LOVE LOVE humans and attention! All I want to do is spend every possible minute with you, whether it is doing chores around the house or watching movies. I am also very active and playful and I am content playing games like tug of war with you or sprinting around the yard with my favorite toy a "jolly ball". The bad news is while I love people, I would PREFER TO BE YOUR ONLY PET because cats are super fun to chase and I don't really know how to interact with other dogs. I could potentially live with the right canine sibling as I did in my original home, but with patience and training. I would really love a home with lots of room for me to run and people who have time to give me lots of attention and love. I could also live in a home with an active family looking for a new running or swimming partner. I am an all terrain kind of dog as I love running, swimming, hiking mountains and curling up on the couch. As long as I have a healthy outlet for my energy I am very well mannered and calm in the house. If you are looking for a constant companion, look no further!

      Breed: Rat Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier (medium coat). This is Sheba! She is one of the smartest dogs you will ever meet, also very head strong, but a lover! She loves nothing better then to lay in bed and nap the day away. Loves to play with more submissive dogs, gets weary around more dominant dogs. She knows sit, shake and lay down and is house trained. She gets protective in her space, but outside of her home she is as friendly as can be meeting new people. She can be shy so she prefers to be the one to initiate interactions. No small animals or small farm animals for Sheba.
