Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). WINNIE is a small Pit Bull Terrier cross. Born approx. 5/2012. She is spayed, microchipped. She is crate trained and house broken. Though shy at first, she does warm up to other dogs. She is untested with cats and children. She doesn't require a lot of exercise, but a nice size yard would be nice. She also needs someone who will keep on top of her with patient training. Owner must reside in Arizona. A house check is a MUST. This meet-n-greet gives us all a chance to see WINNIE interact with any other pets or children you may have. We give a one week trial period with a potential owner. Our adoption contract also offers a free crate for WINNIW and free boarding of WINNIE when you go on vacation or go out of town. Please direct inquiries to Ellen at Raven Pines Dog Rescue at ravenpines@commspeed.net. You can see updates on WINNIE on our Facebook page, RAVEN PINES DOG RESCUE

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.
