Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please do not contact Paws and Prayers for this dog, as it is a courtesy listing. Please call 330-316-9857 for more information, or if you are interested in adopting. 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.

      Breed: Chesapeake Bay Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Akron, OH
      Posted Breed: Chesapeake Bay Retriever / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Jamie (jamie@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. Hello I'm Smith and I am 10 weeks old! My mom is a 55 pound duck hunting Chesapeake Bay Retriever and dad is a 60 pound Tree Walker Coonhound. When I grow up I will be about the size of my parents, between 50-60 pounds. I am very smart and very sweet! Please remember when considering me that puppies are a 10-15 year commitment. Given that both of my parents are hunters, I will succeed best in a home that will put me through training and give my brain a "job" to do! I will take a lot of time, patience, and training. I get along great with other dogs and must be adopted to a home who has a dog I can be friends with! I would do best in a house with children over 5! I have never been around cats but if I am raised with them, I should be fine. My adoption fee is $350. I am up to date on age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and on flea/tick/HW prevention. I come with a pre-paid certificate to be neutered at One of A Kind Pets in Akron, OH. If you are not from this area and get me neutered at your vet, you will be reimbursed $75.00 The first step in Paws and Prayers adoption process is to fill out an adoption application on our website, www.pawsandprayers.org. To be approved for adoption, if there are any pets in the home they must be spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines, and on flea/tick/HW prevention. Please fill out an adoption application today at www.pawsandprayers.org.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female

      Location: Akron, OH
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). I rescued Mocha from a shed where her owners left her locked in and only let out once a day for potty.. she was emaciated and had problems at first adjusting her eyes to daylight. The shed had no lighting or venting and was covered in feces/urine. Mocha loves her toys and would thrive with a fenced yard to play in. Does well on her leash walks and is housetrained. Mocha loves everybody and never stops wagging her butt..lol. Mocha is considered a pocket pitty, cause of her small build. She weighs about 45lbs, is spayed, utd on shots, rabies and microchipped. If you are interested in meeting Mocha, please feel free to contact me. ty 330.316.9857 or jrbabylove@yahoo.com
