Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Munchy's foster mom says he is the perfect medium sized dog. He carries a toy around with him pretty much everywhere he goes, even outside when he’s taking a potty break. He loves to chase toys and be chased while he has them. He likes all things that move including ceiling fans which he leaps in the air in attempts to catch and makes ridiculous noises at. Munchy is mostly house broken and crate trained and loves going for walks. When he is in the yard he will happily chase birds for hours on end. Munchy loves all people and other dogs. The perfect forever family for Munchy is one that is active and has the time to devote to continuing his housebreaking and making sure he gets enough exercise. Doggie or human siblings would be welcome.

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: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Magnolia American Pit Bull Terrier Mix Young •Female • Medium 2 years old ~ 55 lbs UTD on vaccinations ~ spayed ~ microchipped Located in Enfield, CT About Magnolia: Magnolia had a very rough start in life. She came into the shelter with a handful of her "siblings" as part of an abuse case. She was the only dog who was deemed safe enough to adopt out. When she wound up on the euthanasia list we knew we had to save this girl and finally give her a chance at a happy life full of love. According to her foster mom she is doing much better with trusting and has grown to love them. Due to her past living in a house of horrors she is leery of strangers, and other dogs. Her housebreaking is a work in progress but she is crate trained and paper trained. She pulls a bit when on leash. Magnolia is a special girl who likes to "talk" to her foster mom and loves to play with her toys. The prefect forever home for Magnolia is one that has the time and patience to work on gaining her trust and to continue her training. She needs a family that are experienced dog owners with no children or other dogs.

      Location: New York, NY
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). According to his foster mom Jake has the most beautiful bluish/greyish eyes and big goofball, he likes to play all day long. He is good with other dogs of his size or larger; he lives with German shepherd and another Pitbull and is very respectful of both. Small dogs as well as cats might not be a good idea as he thinks they are toys to play and might unintentionally hurt them. Capitan has been going to professional training and has been in a group with 10 or more dogs and plays well with all. He is crate trained and house trained and never had accidents in the house. He loves people; his favorite thing is to snuggle on a couch or a bed with his human. He walks well on a leash and knows sit, shake stay, and his favorite command is to come, when he hears the command he gets so happy that somebody is calling him and runs as fast as he can. He also likes to walk on a treadmill if somebody offers him a treat for it. The perfect family for Jake is one that has time to continue to enforce his training and make sure he gets enough exercise. No cats or small dogs please and children middle school age or older.

American Staffordshire Terrier/Basenji Mix Adult • Female • Medium 4 years old ~ 50 lbs UTD on vaccinations ~ spayed ~ microchipped Located in Dover, DE Cindy is a beautiful dog inside and out. She loves meeting new people, she's good with other dogs and great with kids. An active home that will provide her with a good amount of exercise would be the best fit for her. She's housebroken but doesn't like the crate. Her foster mom says she loves to play and is the best snuggler in the world. Funny thing about Cindy is that she loves to 'swim' across the carpeting. We feel that Cindy would do great in a family environment. If you would like more information on Cindy, please contact us at PoundhoundResQ@gmail.com

      Location: New York, NY
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Nilla came into the shelter as a stray so her past is unknown. An average rated beauty, she quickly caught the attention of a foster who wanted to save her life. Unfortunately for Nilla this person would just be another who would disappoint her. Rejected by her foster for being “too strong” and wanting to chase cats Nilla was moved to boarding after only being in their house for 10 minutes. Based on her evaluation at the shelter we believe that Nilla would do well with an average family who has the ability/strength to handle a large dog. No small dogs or cats please and children middle school age or older just due to her size.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Elijah is described by his foster mom as friendly, loyal, cuddly, and smart. He is housebroken, crate trained, good with strangers, children, and other dogs and walks beautifully on a leash. He enjoys hanging out with his people. The ideal family for Elijah will be able to spend a good amount of time with him as he doesn't like to be alone. He can be a "counter surfer" so his forever family would have to be willing to work with this quirk. He has some allergies so he will need to be fed a high quality grain free food. Elijah would welcome a canine sibling or a human sibling of school age or older.
