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.

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Please contact Jamie (jamie@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. Dear Future Family, Hi, my name is Roscoe, aren't I handsome? I am 1 year old and 55 pounds of LOVE! My ideal home would include a doggy companion or a human who I can spend lots of time with! I adore companionship. I have never been around small children, only older children but my foster Mom thinks I would be fine with humans of all ages! I am house trained and crate trained. My new home must have a fenced in yard to keep me safe so I don't escape! Mom says I am very food motivated so I will do just about anything you want if you give me a cookie. My adoption fee is $250 - this includes my neuter, microchip, vaccines, and monthly dose of flea/tick/HW prevention. If you are interested in adopting me, fill out an adoption application on the Paws and Prayers website as this is the very FIRST STEP in the adoption process and must be done before you can meet me!

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Akron, OH
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Hound / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Sheralyn (sswank1@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. There has to be a pefect home out there for Harold, and I need your help to find it! Harold is 3-4 years old, and lived on the streets for approximately a year in a rural county. In that year, Harold became self sufficient in fending for himself, which has become a part of Harold. I live by myself with the animals, and I know when I come home, Harold will be extremely happy to see me, but his main hang-up is he takes a while to warm up to visitors, although I have noticed a great improvement in the last couple of months. Harold knows this is a safe place, and visitors are fun, but when he goes to a new home, he'll need time to feel like it's a safe place again. He'll need his person to have lots of love and patience. He is 100% potty trained and house-trained, and is great in his crate. I am, however, asking for a home without a lot of traffic or kids. Although this sounds bad, Harold almost needs someone who is a loner, but does enjoy the company of a companion dog. I really need to find this guy a home, so if you think you may know someone who would be a good match, and he/she is looking for a dog, please send Harold's info. He absolutely love going for walks and long hikes. That's when he is happiest. His adoption fee is waived, for an individual that has an approved application only. He comes neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, on flea and heartworm preventative, microchip, and lots of love from Harold.

      Age: Adult
      Location: Akron, OH
      Posted Breed: Beagle (medium coat). Please contact Sheralyn (sswank1@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Re-introducing sweet Majestic! She is a happy little lady, that needs to loose a few pounds, but the good news is she absolutely loves going on walks or hikes, so with a good diet and some exercise, she'll be good to go! She is a great snuggler, and loves to give kisses too. She does well with other friendly dogs, is playful, and if you have cats, I can cat test her for you. Why she was returned: This 6 year old purebred beagle landed herself in a home with 5 small kids, and I thought I had done a great job placing her, but turns out I messed up. Majestic started having potty problems in the home, and was returned because of this. Since being in my home for 4 days now, I got her back New Years Day, she has had zero accidents in the home and crate, so I'm pretty sure the family let her down with taking her out to potty when she needed too, or something similar. Video!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBDWXV5TtH8 If you are interested in adopting Majestic, please fill out an application today! Her adoption fee is $150, and includes up to date vaccinations, dewormer, flea and heartworm preventative, microchip, and endless kisses from Majestic.
