Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ***THIS IS NOT A PAWS AND PRAYERS ANIMAL; this is a courtesy listing, please contact the individual listed below to inquire about this animal. Paws and Prayers is not responsible for the adoption of this animal and all interested parties should reach out to the contact, Ramona, for an application or questions. 330-316.9857 Thank you for choosing to rescue!*** POOR SWEET JACOB has been in rescue for almost 2 yrs now. He just wants his own bff, his own human that he can give kisses to and snuggle with. Won't you meet with him? His pictures do him no justice. he is a very Handsome Guy ;) Jacob was known as the ball park stray. He lived there for well over a year, eluding any capture including the dog warden. He was fed over the fence by a kind 62 yr old man. I learned about Jacob and after a months time was able to trap him. Jacob was heartworm positive but has been treated and doing well. Jacob is 3yr old Chocolate lab/American bull terrier mix, weighing about 65lbs. Jacob is neutered, utd on shots, rabies and heartworm treated. Jacob does well with my other rescues, potty trained via doggy door and is average on a leash. We are still working on some things, but he is doing great for having no socialization for over a year. I would describe Jacob as a big baby who loves to have you constant attention, though he does well when put in his kennel. If you are interested in Jacobs Story, please contact me, Ramona 330-316-9857 Home check is a must. Adoption fee is $125

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.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150. Please contact D (goldnaire@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Meeeeet InSPECtor Gadget! Spec, for short, can't wait to meet you! He is a very eager, silly boy! At 2-3 years old and 60 pounds, this lean guy is ready to GO! Speck is the outdoor-adventure buddy you've been looking for! Just like Inspector Gadget, he is so curious, playful and always finds a way to get kisses! He is a Paws and Prayers volunteer favorite! Spec came to us a year ago from a pound where he was getting really anxious! Paws and Prayers couldn't leave this sweet, attention-yearning boy behind! He was showing off, dancing in his cage, we knew he would make the perfect companion for someone special! InSPECtor is a very sweet boy who loves his humans, but he is a very active dog and needs a lifestyle to match! Lots of play time is ideal for Spec! He loves romping with his foster-dog siblings and would love a dog buddy in his new home, too! Speck would be awesome for a family looking to provide their existing active dog a companion. Sorry, no kitties for Speck. No children under teens (he would never mean harm, but is strong and would knock little ones over). Don't get us wrong, when playtime is over, Spec lovessss to curl up with his humans watching TV! You'll earn extra loyalty points if you give him a bone or Kong toy with peanut butter init to chew! ;) Spec is the ultimate package; he is a young enough age that he is house and crate trained, but still eager to learn and play with you! He loves car rides and overall, will make a wonderful companion. Spec's adoption fee is $150, but this will be refunded if you take him to basic training with you! Look at that HUGE smile! Speck is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. Don't wait to meet this special guy! He SO deserves his forever home! ❤ Adoption application to meet him >> www.pawsandprayers.org

      Breed: Bullypit
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $150. Please contact Jamie (jamie@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. Kelis is around 3 or 4 years old. She was pulled from the Lorain county pound by Paws and Prayers with a terrible skin infection that has since been cleared up with the help of medicated baths and a grain free diet (which would need to be continued in her permanent home). Her coat has grown in beautifully and she gets many compliments on her looks whenever she goes out. Not just another pretty face, Kelis is also a highly intelligent dog. She knows sit and down, loves treats and training time and is progressing nicely! She is house trained and crate trained, although she would rather be around her people. Kelis is very affectionate and loving, really enjoys snuggling on the couch and loves going for car rides and just hanging out. She has good house manners, and she had earned herself free-range in her former fosters house before she had to leave the country for her job. While she is calm in the house, once outside, it is clear that Kelis is a very athletic girl. She loves to run around the yard, which is fun to watch as she is very quick and graceful. Regular exercise is a must for Kelis, she loves going on walks and exploring new places. It is important to know that she does not get along with all other dogs, and that she will try to chase cats and squirrels. She does get along with some dogs, and adores my brother's pitbull 6 month old puppy, they are great playmates. However, this seems to be the exception, not the rule. We are working on her reactivity and she is making progress. Just important to be aware of these tendencies, especially walking on leash because she is quite a strong girl. All in all, Kelis is a inquisitive, smart, loving, sweet dog with a great personality. Her friends enjoy her wide range of facial expressions, you can almost see her wheels turning sometimes. She has proven to be an excellent companion since I have had her these few months, and I know she will be a wonderful addition to the right permanent home. If you have any questions, or would like more information about Kelis, please do not hesitate to get in touch. (This biography was written be Kelis' former foster - Kelis is now looking for a new foster OR an adopter to give her a forever home) Adoption fee: $150 Please fill out an adoption application today at www.pawsandprayers.org.
