Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Mickey is a patch-work pit bull mix, with a Mickey Mouse emblem on his back. He is a good boy who has been patiently waiting for a home to call his own. Mickey is selective with dogs he likes. Generally he loves people, but does not like people or dogs to get in his face, it just makes him nervous. So, he would be best in a home without little children who do not understand. He loves to play fetch and run through the yard! And he does great on walks...he absolutely LOVES walks! And since he is totally housebroken, he will want to take you for walks often. Mickey wants ALL of your attention and will be a great friend to the perfect person. Thank you! Hope to meet you soon!!

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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Border Collie Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). Jelly is such a sweet, smart, and fun energetic girl! She loves to run around and entertain you with her silly zoomies. Then, once she burns off some of her puppy energy, she loves to just lay next to you and sneak in a nap while you watch tv or read a book. Jelly loves to greet people with her wiggle butt and lots of kisses. She's growing every day and learning new things about the world around her. Like how much fun playing ball and Frisbee are. Also, how easy it is to sometimes trip over your own paws (haha). One of my favorite things about Jelly is her ears! They are so cute; sometimes sticking straight up or one ear straight up and the other flopped. Jelly is such a sweet girl, so full of life, she will bring such joy and love to anyone's life!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Payton has had a rough go of life. He would do best as an only dog in a home with adults only. Payton attaches very quickly to people and just longs to be loved. He needs a soul-mate, someone who will talk to him, teach him and share the world with him.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Phoenix was rescued by the Chicago Fire Department when they answered a call of an abandoned building on fire. He was brought to Chicago Animal Control with possible smoke inhalation; however, he was brought to the vet and his lungs were clear. You get the best of both worlds with this pup. He is extremely affectionate and will curl up right next to you or on your lap for hours on end….as long as you give him belly rubs! He is still a young pup so he can also be very playful. He gets super excited to meet new people and dogs; he does tend to jump but he does so gently. He gets along great with other dogs and children. Being a pup he likes to play and rough house sometimes. For that reason we recommend that until he receives basic training he be kept away from smaller dogs and babies. He came in as a stray and because he is so young we don't believe he had a previous owner, or he was discarded very young. His current fosters are teaching him the basic tricks (sit, paw, lay down etc.). He is also learning leash etiquette. When walked, he is very good on the leash until he sees another dog, bunny or squirrel then he begins to pull. He is almost potty trained, he is very good for the most part but has his accidents; another thing his current fosters working on. He had a rough start but his trust is not lost. He has no problem giving you kisses and his belly for rubs. He will be undeniably loyal to whoever decides to adopt him.

      Age: Young

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). If I could describe her in one way it would be that she is hands down the greatest ambassador for the breed! Every single dog and person she comes across, she is the sweetest little thing. She truly embodies the pittie resilience for the horror and abuse she went through, she wouldn't hurt a fly. She does well with all types of dogs: she loves contact play but also is extremely respectful of our laid back dog Enzo. She loves to go on long, long walks but prefers to spend ALL day napping in her open cage on her big comfy bed...(sounds like a perfect pooch to me!) she sleeps soundly through the night on her bed. She has never shown destructive behavior as she is out while we are gone. Also, zero food guarding-I can take her food bowl away while she is eating with absolutely zero problem. Such a good girl! She does great with respectful kids that obviously understand she is a little shy and can't be crawling all over her. We take her out with us everywhere and once we stop to chat with people-she will lay down and wait patiently. She doesn't jump and is so chill to take in public. As expected from her heart breaking first year of life-she is shy and timid. After only a month she now follows me around the house and wakes us up every morning with such a wiggly butt. She just needs a little time! She is only 1.5 years old and a gorgeous girl.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Three pit bull mix puppies were rescued after being posted on Craigslist at only 3 weeks old. Their mom was chained to a tree without food, water or shelter. The puppies were in a dirt floor chicken coop, without their mother. When the rescuers arrived most of the puppies had died. Eventually, the mom and these three survivors were rescued. Carmine can be a laid back and want to snuggle; however, he also loves to run after the Frisbee and play in the baby pool! Carmine loves to give kisses. He is shy when meeting new people but he is very curious about them. If a new person sits on a step or the floor he will slowly make his way and start giving kisses. Once he warms up he is a total love-bug goofball. Carmine is not found of dogs who try and dominate him but he does well with friendly pups. He will even snuggle with them. Carmine has never been around young children and he doesn't quite know what to think of them. He is an amazing boy! Please give him a chance!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Just look at that face! Patient. Curious. Listening. She only wants to be with you and to hear you talk. And those eyes--one blue, one brown! Gaze into those eyes...and wait for sweet Lola's smile. What a remedy for screen-addiction! Just think of the things you can do with this super sweetheart by your side: Go for a run, take a long walk, snuggle on the couch with a book or a remote control. She'll be there! Need to run some errands? She loves her car rides! And Lola enjoys her baths, her ball, bed and Kong toy. She is house trained, and she's smart. Lola doesn't get into anything when left alone in the house, and she doesn't chew on anything but her toys. She knows "sit", "stay", "paw", "leave it", "no", and her favorite, "come"! She is good with dogs who are also good with dogs--but will not put up with cranky-pants dogs. We're not sure what Lola thinks about cats, but we hear she lived with one for a little while. She is good with kids. This doll is about 5 years old and weighs 42 pounds. Her family was forced to give her up because of an unfortunate housing situation and felt they had no other alternative. We know it must have broken her heart, so we are anxious for her to find just the right people to make her happy forever. She only wants to be with her people, to sit near the ones she loves. Lola will make a fine, easy addition to your home and into your heart. Please give us a call to meet this sweet pumpkin!

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). One look a those eyes, and you can guess where this pretty girl gets her name! This Elizabeth Taylor is a little slow to warm up. We don't know much about her background, but whatever happened to her has made her a little nervous. She seems to do best when with another dogs...trusting other dogs before she trusts a human being. If you are gentle and take your time, soon Elizabeth Taylor will snuggle up to you for some cuddling. Elizabeth Taylor is a dainty ~28 lbs now. She has a low-to-medium energy level. And while she loves to run around the yard playing with the other dogs, she also knows when to chill out and snuggle on the couch. Elizabeth Taylor is about 1 1/2 years old. She is not a chewer, although she has chewed several electrical cords in her foster home (!!! but something has to power those bright blue eyes!) She won't chew a nylabone but likes peanut butter in her kong. She is good with kids and dogs, but we've not seen her with cats. She's still working on potty training and leash walking. Sometimes Elizabeth Taylor gets very scared and you will have to come to her rescue...picking her up to carry her to her safe place. While she gets nervous and afraid, she does not growl and does not seem to be so fearful that she would bite. Please get in touch to meet this beautiful girl with the amazing eyes! Elizabeth Taylor is looking for that perfect Richard Burton, or maybe Eddie Fisher, or no...maybe Richard Burton again... :) If you are interested in this sweet girl please fill out an application at: http://www.dogsaredeservingrescue.com/adoptable-dogs/adoption-application/

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I’m looking to find my forever home, and have provided some of my likes and dislikes to see if I’m the missing piece to complete your family. Likes: Walks , playing with my four legged friends (I could use a little work with greeting politely, but LOVE other dogs), getting loved on from any and all people, sunbathing, treats, giving hugs, cuddling on the couch, and following my favorite humans and dog friends around the house. Dislikes: Peanut Butter (hard to believe but I just don’t like it no matter how many times my humans try to feed me it), being left alone for too long (I do best crated when you leave as I like to explore things I shouldn’t if I’m not). Everyone says I’m super smart and I know the signs for “sit”, “stay”, “come”, “down”, and “paw”. I’m super affectionate and like to show my love by giving hugs and I’m never stingy with my kisses. I should mention that I have a quirk, I’m hard of hearing. But once you meet me you don’t even realize that I’m not able to hear, I adapt quickly and never let it stop me from having fun and enjoying life. Also, because of it I’m the most sound sleeper ever , and am not bothered by loud noises like fireworks or sirens.
