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: Catahoula Leopard Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Betsy is a beautiful bouncy young Catahoula mix who is looking for a fun loving outdoorsy energetic family who are willing to take her through training and be the consistency that she craves. Catahoula are very intelligent dogs who need owners who will be kind, calm and in control. A tired dog is a good dog and Betsy so wants to be YOUR good dog! She loves playing fetch and would probably be best with older kids who can handle her enthusiasm for life! She would play ball all day long if she could. She's good with other dogs, not sure about cats. She is crate trained and potty trained and has never had an accident in the house. She loves to run and equally enjoys being snuggled and loved on by her family. Like some dogs she is scared of loud noises especially gun shots and if she hears them will run and hide. She enjoys the water and the beach and ideally would get to spend time there as often as possible! If you think you have the time and love to devote to Miss Betsy please read on for how to apply to be her forever family. 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. Please fill in our online application at www.myaarf.org 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 $350 which includes all transport, vetting (including spay/neuter) and microchipping.

      Breed: Mountain Cur-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Mountain Cur / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $350. Did you know that Tora means Tiger??? We couldn't resist naming this beautiful girl after her stripes!!! She arrived in Seattle July 20th and whilst she is enjoying her beach front foster home she really would love a family of her very own! She isn't as big as she looks in her photos weighing in at just 60lbs. With some regular exercise and the right diet we think she should be around 55lbs ideal weight. Gorgeous Tora was found on the side of the road in rural Louisiana eating trash out of a garbage bag, she was also very pregnant and just trying to survive for her babies. Although the vet said she should be weeks off giving birth sadly Tora went into labor a couple of days later, needed an emergency c-section and lost all 5 of her puppies :( Luckily a rescue volunteer found her that day and despite losing her babies was able to nurse her back to health and now she is ready to come to Seattle to find a loving forever home! Tora adores people and especially loves to cuddle with the 11yr old boy in her foster home, in fact her perfect day would be lying with her head in someones lap receiving belly rubs. She will close her eyes and bask in the attention! She's a happy go lucky dog who enjoys playing with tennis balls, rope too and her squeaky Kong wubba. She is crate trained (won't potty in her crate whilst you are out) and has been doing well with being home with family around for a couple of hours with no potty accidents- she may still need reminders of when to go outside but she is learning. Tora likes other dogs and wants to play but one given the proper introductions she does great! Tora has not been around cats at all. Do you think you might be able to give Tora the loving home she so deserves? If so, please read on for how to apply!

      Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Hound (short coat). Swan is a very sweet girl who will chill but also likes to run and play. She loves to lay her head in your lap and to be petted. In fact, she would love to be in your lap if you would let her as she has no idea of her size! Swan started out with a very hard life, abandoned and nearly starved she was not far from death. Swan would not trust any humans and it took over a week to catch her with a live trap. Swan has, for the most part, lost her fear of humans but is very cautious upon meeting new people. However, as soon as she realizes they are not going to harm her she is loving and devoted. She is good with other dogs, but prefers a home without cats please. She likes kids and house trained and crate trained already. We recommend a training class for all our incoming dogs as we believe it's a great bonding experience and can avoid issues later on in life. Are you ready to meet your new family member, is the gorgeous Miss Swan the one for you? Please read on for details on how to apply to be her forever family!

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $350. Buzz is the sweetest boy and is arriving in Seattle on Sunday August 6th. He loves hugs and he will lean all his weight on your chest if you open your arms and ask for a 'hug'. He is very easy going and lets the kids use him like a pillow when laying on the floor. He loves to sit on the couch next to you, on you, on the floor below you, and anywhere else you can still reach to pet him. He is fine with being outside but loves coming back inside. He also loves his treats!! Buzz had to have one eye removed due to an infection and since them likes to sit with his good eye facing out so make sure you take that into account when you call him to sit with you. He is super easy going so baths are simple, he will stand and lets you scrub and wash him with no problems. And he loves to be towel dried. Buzz loves playing but his favorite thing to play with is the cat. (She doesn't mind too much) he will sneak up next to her and let her run then slowly go to her other side and do the same thing over and over. The cat tires out before him. In bed he likes to lay at the foot of the bed only because he like to sprawl out. But every few nights he manages to make his way up the side of the bed and I wake with his head on the pillow on top of mine. He is a very good boy and listens most of the time. He doesn't like to be alone and does enjoy having a doggie companion. Through no fault of his own Buzz is needing a new home because his military family was re stationed to Germany and couldn't take him with :( If you think you have a great home to offer Buzz please read on for how to apply! He will be arriving in Seattle on Aug 6th and would love to come to his forever home!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      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.
