Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). July 2016 - Professional Trainer Evaluation Buster is a playful and respectful guy. He has wonderful communication signals with dogs of all sizes and energy levels. He is outgoing and enjoys meeting new friends. He enjoys rough housing but also enjoys chasing. He played with dogs of different sizes and adjusted his play well. He really enjoyed running with one of the owners at the dog park so I believe he would be a great running buddy. His leash skills were decent getting in and out of the dog park. He does need more work on responding off leash to common commands but did well with verbal interruptions when he was being bothersome. I believe that Buster could be in a home with any size dog that is respectful and playful. He would also be a good addition to a dog that is older, and not as playful, as I think he would help them stay young in a respectful way. Buster could get himself into trouble if a large group of dogs were playing as his energy level can be high. However, if taught a proper interruption command his behavior could be controlled and he could easily learn to play nicer when overly aroused. Buster is super sweet and loves love. He would do great as a single dog, with proper socialization on a regular basis. He would also do great with siblings. June 2015 What is more endearing than the look in Buster’s gleaming eyes? You can read all of his loving gentleness there. Seized by MACC due to his previous owner’s severe neglect, this beautiful bully is all about forgiving and living. A happy 2-year-old, busy Buster loves to run, play with toys, and go for rides in the car. But what he truly adores is attention! He likes when you rub under his arm, and will kick his hind legs blissfully if you hit the right spot. A well-mannered mister, he knows sit, wait, and down, and he and his foster family have started a training class to work on his leash skills and his interaction with other dogs. For Buster to thrive, he needs a home where he’s the only pet, and an experienced adopter to continue his training and provide him with the love he needs and will more than gladly return. www.nashvillepittie.org/adoption_application.html Adoption Fees - $250 for puppies $200 for adults Find us on Facebook - www.facebook.com/NashvillePitBulls All Nashville PITTIE adopt-a-bulls are inside dogs with outside privileges.

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-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Goodlettsville, TN
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Relist - March 13, 2016 Nona's adoptive family has had a baby and Nona has not adjusted well to the change. Nona gets along great with other dogs, including older dogs. She is beautiful with blue and grey and brindle coloring, and high energy with a big appetite. She loves walks and playing in the backyard. She is crate trained and prefers sleeping in her crate to anywhere else. She is obedient, but a little touch up with a trainer would be great for her. Nona will thrive in a high energy, attentive and small child-free home. Momma Mia and her baby Sophie were rescued by a good samaritan at the end of last year. Momma Mia did test positive for heartworm, but we have sent her through treatment which she sailed through with flying colors! This beautiful and sweet girl is now ready to find her forever home! She loves other pups, especially her foster brother Clemenza! If interested in Momma Mia, please apply online at www.nashvillepittie.org - Her adoption fee is $200 which includes her spay, heartworm treatment, microchip, and vaccinations for the year.
