Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Leroy is a 9 year old Pit mix who is such a joy to be around! He loves all people and would love nothing more than to cuddle with you. He does need to be the only pet. He spent 5 years in a hoarding situation, so we are carefully looking for a home that will be dedicated to loving Leroy for the rest of his life (or a foster home to help while we wait for that home)! Leroy told us what he's looking for in a foster or a forever home, so we thought we'd just let him share it in his own words! "It may sound a bit selfish on my part, but I am not a fan of other dogs or cats, I would like to shower you with attention all by myself! I would love someone that "gets" me - a dog savvy person is a must!" I even have my own Facebook page - check me out! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Leroy/264220677068110 Leroy is crate-trained and potty-trained. $150 adoption fee applies. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We do a 30-day trial adoption and if it's not a good fit during that period, we will refund 75% of the adoption fee. ***We frequently fall into spam folders, so if you haven't heard back from us in 24-48 hours, please check there***

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: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Hound / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). If you are looking for a companion that would like nothing more than to watch movies with you, go for walks, car rides and be by your side, Sam may be the perfect canditate for you! Sam is a gentle giant, he loves people and gets along well with all dogs. He is very laid back and if he can't be on your lap he likes to be as close as possible. He loves to "go with" and rides well in a vehicle. He will stand there forever and let you brush him and loves to be bathed. He does chase cats so a cat free household would be the best for him (and the cat). Sam was rescued from a high kill shelter in Louisiana and is currently in a foster home. As a purely foster based rescue we have no central location at which you can visit our dogs, consequently we only honor meeting requests from preapproved adopters. You are welcome to fill in our online application at www.myaarf.org; please fill this in as fully as you can. It won't obligate you to anything or any particular dog but gives us a great place from which to begin the matching process. Please allow 24-48 hours for a response from our busy volunteers. Adoption Fee is $150 which includes all transport, vetting (including spay/neuter) and microchipping.

      Murphy

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: French Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). Murphy is a sweet and gentle boy who loves nothing more than to cuddle on the couch with you, or snooze on the bed next to you. He is very well behaved in the house and is receptive to training. Murphy is wary of strangers and will growl at New people. His foster home has been working to introduce him to new people in a positive light. His ideal home would be a confident owner willing to continue to work with him on his confidence. Because he is unsure of new people, we are looking for a calm, no kid household. Murphy is picky about his dog friends.. He gets along great with one female dog in the house, but is not fond of the other female or the males. He would be fine being an only dog, or maybe a mellow or happy go lucky female dog companion. Murphy wants to please and is a wonderful dog. Give him the chance to get to know you and you will not be disappointed!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Seahurst, WA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Honey Bear is an incredibly sweet, playful and charismatic pit bull. She is approximately 11-12 yrs old. She would do great in a house or condo as she has a low energy level and would be fine with a short walk once a day or every other. She has arthritis in her back legs and is on medication. She is dog selective and sometimes reactive towards other dogs on walks. Honey Bear thoroughly enjoys cuddle with her foster family. Honey Bear is 100% kennel trained for when her foster family is at work and does not show any signs of separation anxiety. Honey Bear is also potty trained, but due to her age, she does need to go out more often. When you tell her it's time to 'Go' she gets very excited. Honey Bear knows sit and stay. She is looking forward to playing in a yard of her own. She is full of love and has so much joy to share! Honey Bear is too interested in cats though, so no cats please! ** CONTACT INFO@MYAARF.ORG DIRECTLY IF INTERESTED - THE "ADOPT ME" EMAIL LINK IS BROKEN AND WE ARE NOT RECEIVING THE MESSAGES ** If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask! $225 adoption fee applies. All our dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered. The first 30 days after adoption is considered a trial period, if for any reason you return the dog in the trial period your adoption fee is 75% refundable. ***Our email responses FREQUENTLY are marked as 'SPAM', so if you don't receive a response from us within 24-48 hours, please check your spam folder.
