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: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Akron, OH
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Chrissy (chrissynic430@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Chihuahua/terrier mix/15 pounds/1yr/$250 fee 1 yr old/15 pounds/$250 fee/mix with a smooth coat Chico is just an adorable little 1 year old with plenty of spunk and pizazz. He needs someone to exercise with him because he can go go go. Later on he is good for a cuddle while watching TV and keeping you warm this winter. He gets very cold even in this fall weather so you can dress him up in coats to keep him warm! As you can see from his new pics he is ready for you to come get him! He is very eager to learn your ways and please you. So some obedience training might be just the thing to help him understand more. He will smile at you while looking up and adoring you. He can let you know when he hears someone outside and warn you of impending danger. (That trash can doesn’t usually go there at the curb! It needs growled at.) He is pretty comical and very good at being your very own sidekick. He’s also great with cats if you want a nice, polite dog to go with cats. He also wants to play with other dogs if they’re around. He’s just so friendly! Oh and people? Loves them! Very enthusiastic! Since he’s young he will be fine with kids as well. He still jumps on people but at only 15 pounds he’s not likely to knock many kids down. Crate/house trained. May not do well in an apartment since he barks as foster mom leaves.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Callie is about 2yrs old, just under 50lbs with average energy. fully vetted, spayed and microchipped. I rescued Callie from a high kill shelter in Kentucky where she was a day away from being euthanized. She then spent 6 mths in rescue and we worked on training. She was recently adopted about 2 months ago by a single man who became her bff. Unfortunately he passed away unexpectedly.. Callie is now back with me in rescue, confused and heart broken.. Rick loved Callie and she was so happy to have her own home. Callie would prefer to be the only pet. She loves her humans big and small but doesn't care to share with other dogs. Callie is very athletic. Callie is desperately searching for her new furever home. p.s. Callie is completely house trained and is not destructive in anyway.. very good house manners. She would also love a fenced yard to chase ball in. PLEASE Serioius Inquries Only. Thankyou. 330.316.9857 Ramona Calling or emailing at jrbabylove@yahoo.com is the best way to reach me.. thanx 330-316-9857

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu / Mixed. Please contact Chrissy (chrissynic430@yahoo.com) for more information about this pet. Shih tzu mix/2 years/20#/$250 fee Sophie Grace is a Shih Tzu mix of only 2 years old and 20 pounds. Her adoption fee is $250. Since she is a mix she is not hypoallergenic. Her hair may have been shaved to allow her skin to heal. She is a sweet girl who needs a dog sibling that will play with her and maybe an older kid or 2. A fenced yard would be a must. Running free with a boy dog makes her so happy. She can be a little rough and is learning that I will quit playing with her when she nips too hard. She is still learning a lot. Recommend a home with older kids such as 6 and up. She has met some other dogs and it seems other small females do not care for her. A meet is required in a neutral, quiet setting. She is crate/house trained. She is not allowed free roam of the home yet. She is still young and knows how to find trouble. Her new home requires non-smokers. That will be explained at a meet and greet. A home visit may be necessary.

      Location: Akron, OH
      Posted Breed: Great Dane (short coat). Please contact melissa (melissa.martie@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Hi! My name is Delaney and I am an active girl. I am 1 1/2 years old and weigh about 80 pounds. I need a home that has large breed ownership experience and time to train and exercise me. I will be a great addition to the right home, but I need A LOT of attention and exercise to help me learn new things and run off all my energy! I am a very sweet girl and love attention from my human friends. I do well in my crate and only chew on things I shouldn’t when I am bored. Having toys available and exercise will definitely help! I have not had a lot of interaction with dogs, so I would do best as the only dog so that I can learn proper socialization. My Foster Mom thinks I have a lot of potential to have doggie friends, but need appropriate introductions (and patience!). My adoption fee is $350, but Paws and Prayers is providing a $100 training reimbursement voucher with my adoption to make sure I continue to learn good habits. I am very strong. I do not walk well on the leash and want to run alongside cars. I like to jump and can easily reach your shoulders. I am spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines. I have also had the Gastropexy surgery. The first step of the adoption process is to fill out an adoption application today at www.pawsandprayers.org. I can’t wait to meet you!

      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Gerry (gerry.gaugler@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Coco Chanel is a very sweet, little girl. She loves to be with her people and is good with cats and other dogs. Coco needs a home where she will not be left for long periods of time. When Coco came to Paws and Prayers, she had a very large bladder stone that had to be removed surgically. Coco did very well with the surgery and is now urinating normally. Because the stone was caused by environmental issues, Coco does not have to be kept on a special diet. Coco is learning how to be cuddled. Coco is up-to-date on all vaccinations, is microchipped and has been spayed. Coco weighs 7 lbs and is 6 years old. Coco Chanel's adoption fee is $200.

I am about 2 yrs old and I am a Pit Bull Terrier. I will charm and entertain my new family. I loves to wrestle with my foster siblings, and would do best in a new home with another dog and a fenced in yard. I also love to curl up with my humans or lay at their feet chewing io a bone. I am house broken and crate trained. I am a young dog with some manners but would do better if you enrolled me in an obedience class. There will be an up to $100 refund to the adopters after they have completed a class with me. It's a WIN WIN- that way everyone is on the same page, it's great for bonding, and I love the one on one time and the cookies! My adoption fee $200.00 includes nueter, microchip, deworming, up-to-date vaccines, and heartworm / flea prevention * I tested negative for heartworm :) Please fill out an adoption application today at www.pawsandprayers.org.
