Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Ruby Sweet is calm and affectionate. She loves attention and likes to lean in for hugs. She has a playful side that comes out after you spend some time with her. She walks at a leisurely pace on leash and loves to investigate her surroundings. Ruby is 55 lbs and just over 3 years old. She has participated in shelter playgroups and was a little fearful of the other dogs at first but is now warming up to playtime. As always recommended, please bring your dog along to meet before adopting to make sure it is a good fit.  Staff will help set up a dog to dog intro while you are at the shelter. Adoption price includes spay, microchip, deworming, current vaccinations, 30 days of pet insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love.

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: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Shepherd / Mixed. Emmitt is an incredibly smart and obedient dog looking for an adult-only home. He requires a careful introduction to new people - once comfortable he is a kind and affectionate companion. When settled in the home, Emmitt is a total couch potato and loves to snuggle. He will use his snout to gently 'bully' his way into your lap where he will sleep for hours. He loves car rides, but if he can't ride shotgun he will gladly sleep in the back seat. He is a gentle soul. He has done well with other large dogs and would enjoy having a compatible dog friend to wrestle with. Emmitt's adopters will receive continued training support to ensure that he is successful in his new home. E-mail fostering@kcmo.org to learn more about this special guy.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Who likes older dogs? You know the ones that don&#39;t chew your favorite shoes but would rather sit next to you. Samsara is a 10 year old Pit Bull/Mix. Samsara is normally friendly towards all humans and cats and not so in love with other dogs. If you have another pet, it is recommended to schedule a meet and greet prior to adoptions. Samsara likes squeaky toys, playing fetch, chase and wrestling. She is a total love and hasn&#39;t been left alone very much - she likes her humans. Samsara is kennel trained for the night and is not used to being on furniture. She should be able to live successfully with cats in the home. Samsara participates in shelter dog playgroups and she only likes to be with very social dogs who will give her space when she needs it. She&#39;s an older girl and she knows what she likes. She would definitely love to hang out on the couch with you! Staff has reviewed Samsara&#39;s interaction with other dogs and they feel she would be most successful as the only dog in the home. Adoption price includes spay, microchip, deworming, current vaccinations, 30 days of pet insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love. Please give this special girl a wonderful home for her golden years.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Bacon, and I&#39;m a great dog, at least that is what my foster mom says. I am still very cautious around new people, but foster mom is helping me get braver every day. I live with other dogs all smaller than me, but foster mom has a lot of dog friends and I have enjoyed meeting all of them. Me and my foster brother and sisters all sleep and play together every day. I feel a lot braver walking through doors and past humans if I have the other dogs with me and I make great friends with dogs much quicker than humans. Foster mom and dad sometimes try to touch me, but I like my space. I get lots of delicious food and will do pretty much anything I understand for something that tastes good! Foster mom makes me sit before I get foods, but I see her eating when she stands all the time; humans are weird sometimes. Although I make great friends with dogs most of the time, I don&#39;t really like puppies. <br/><br/>My foster parents say I ride great in the car, but I usually need help getting in. I love to go on walks and my foster mom says I&#39;m the best loose leash walker she ever met. Although I&#39;m still very unsure of human friends, I still love to follow people around and see what they do. You all are very interesting to me. I would love to find a family of my very own with a furry sister or brother too! My new family should probably have a fenced in yard since I tend to like hanging around outside on my own. Mostly I don&#39;t like my humans to watch me potty or eat. When I get uncomfortable I will hang out in my kennel and I usually only have accidents if there is a scary storm outside, since I don&#39;t like to be wet. I hope you might be able to help me find a forever family as great as my foster mom and dad with all my foster siblings! Thank you for reading my story and please excuse these embarrassing video that foster mom made of me, but she thinks I look really cute in them!<br/><br/>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLNR4q5vkFs<br/><br/>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBfs7vdCbtc<br/><br/>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlNT--0cfd4<br/><br/>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIb7hQaWpOo&amp;feature=youtu.be

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Darwin, sometimes people call me D. I&#39;m a shy 3.5 year old boy who is looking for someone who will love me forever. Are you the one I&#39;ve been waiting for?<br/>Right now I live with my foster parents and two foster brothers. My foster brothers and I get along really well, and I LOVE to run around the yard and wrestle with them! Sometimes I can play a little rough, and my foster parents have to remind me to calm down. I am really good at taking corrections, even though I may talk back a little! My foster mom says that I like to let her know what I think by making some funny sounds. I know &quot;sit&quot; and &quot;kennel,&quot; and take treats with a gentle mouth. When my foster parents leave for work, I hang out in my kennel and have no problems. Sometimes I even like to take a nap in my kennel with the door open! My foster brothers and I all sleep on the floor in dog beds, although sometimes I like to walk around the room a little bit before I fall asleep. My favorite thing is when I get to lay on the couch with my foster parents, and I always like to put my head in someones lap. I&#39;m very responsive to touch. I like to chew on toys, and play tug with anyone who will play with me.<br/>I would be best fit as a second dog, I need a buddy to wrestle with. I will need some training to help with a few things, as I can get pretty scared meeting new people. It takes me a little while to calm down after meeting new people, but with patience I become a calm sweet boy. My foster parents and the training staff at KCPP have been working with me, and I am learning! I also prefer a home with no small kids and no cats.<br/>If you&#39;d like to meet me and my foster parents, I&#39;d love to meet you! They can tell you all about how wonderful I am. I&#39;d also like to meet any other dogs you may have before you take me home, staff at KCPP can help with that. Adoption price includes current vaccinations, microchip, neuter and 30 days of pet insurance.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hello, my name is Moose. It is so nice to meet you. I would love to learn all about you. Do you want to know more about me? Okay, here you go. I am a 2 year old mutt that was found running the streets. Luckily, I was brought to the KC Pet Project. I am treat-motivated and already know how to sit and lay down. My behavior is easily corrected and I am crate trained &amp; house trained. My foster parents are really proud of me with how fast I am learning new behaviors and they say I will need a family that will continue my training. I have lots of energy, especially after being in my crate all day. I am barrier reactive in certain situations and I am working really hard to get better. I love playing with toys, especially those that have a squeaker. I get along with other dogs and participate in playgroups twice a week. No cats, please.<br/> <br/>I am neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and ready to go home! I come with 30 days of pet health insurance and a lifetime of unconditional love, at no additional charge! We always ask you bring the whole family for an introduction, 2, 3 or 4 legged, just to make sure that everyone can be great friends! Don&#39;t wait, call today. I am currently in a foster home and am looking forward to being the newest member of your family.
