Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). You kind of have to meet Moosette in person to understand just how stinkin' adorable she is, but we'll do our best to convey it here. At around 5 years old and 60 lbs this low-rider is the cutest mini-hippo ever. In addition to her good looks, Moosie is also a friendly girl who enjoys going on walks, snuggling, and being perfectly house/crate trained even while her foster parents are at work for a full day. Moosette is is perfectly fine passing other dogs on walks and even hangs out with her neighbors pups from time to time but will likely thrive most as the only pooch in her forever home. Sometimes Moosie is a little tentative with new people--just seems to depend on the person--so though we know she'll love and bond wonderfully with her forever family, she'll thrive most in an adult home. When Moosie first joined the rescue she had terrible chronic ear infections and ultimately her veterinarian and surgeon decided ear canal ablation surgery would be in her best interest. So far she has had surgery for one ear and is feeling so much happier and less painful! She'll be receiving her second surgery in May but can certainly meet potential adopters in the interim. This snorty gal is spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Her adoption has been sponsored by one of her biggest fans, and you can access our application here: http://www.onetail.org/adoption/apply/

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.
