Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Active Youngster Full of Sweetness How can such a loving, happy, affectionate, playful young lady been abandoned on a lonely county road? Beautiful Goldie laid in the same spot for two days waiting for someone who would never return. We love this beautiful young dog, and wish for her to find a wonderful family who will play with her and love her forever. She loves to be around people and would love nothing more than to have a loyal human companion that lavishes her with attention and affection. Her favorite hobbies include fetch, playing with human (older kids and adults) and doggie friends and cuddling.

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.

      Lucky

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Lucky was found wandering a highway. He was covered in dirt and fleas. He met a cat and had zero interest in her and behaved like a gentleman in the tub. Lucky is heartworm positive, but we will get him all fixed up in no time! Lucky is a bit on the thin side, we will get him fattened up, he is tall and lanky! He's also very puppy-like and has a playful nature. He will need a lot of exercise. Lucky walks well on leash, but would benefit from obedience training to work out the kinks in his game! He is very treat motivated, so training should be a breeze!

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Gabby is a little sweetheart! She loves to play with balls and people. She is good with other dogs but we haven't had a chance to introduce her to any kitties! Poor little thing was wandering in Ruskin and found herself in the shelter. She's too cute to sit in a cage, so one of our volunteers is fostering her. Gabby is now attending obedience classes and learning how to be a good girl on a leash. She will be the perfect addition to an active family.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Boxer Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer / Mixed. King is a gentle giant when he gets to know you! He loves attention and a walk with his family. He doesn't seem to be interested in toys, but does love his treats! He walks perfectly on leash, but can get excited when he sees others dogs. He always wants to please so he is very obedient. He knows all his basic commands and will wait patiently until the family comes from work or play. He does get a little uncomfortable when strangers come to close, but he's working on that since being out of the shelter. This poor guy made 2 trips through the shelter. the first time his family came back for him, but 2nd time, they just left him there. He was a shelter favorite, but due to his size and color, he was overlooked for months. KInc is attending his basic obedience class and is a very good student! King is good with other dogs with proper introductions and can be good with cats, if the cat is used to dogs. Kingwould do best in a home with older, considerate children. King is up to date on all of his vaccinations, crate trained, leash trained and house trained. He is a big, goofy love bug. King deserves to know that his family won't dump him at the shelter - maybe your family is that family!

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Trixie - known as Tequila in the shelter was surrendered by her owners when they couldn't afford to provide her medical care. Trixie is very vocal and will sing for her supper! We don't know how she will do with other dogs, we are still getting to know her. Trixie has been extremely friendly since we have had her and very sweet. She will need a home that can provide her comfort and love.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed. Wrecker and his brother found themselves at the county shelter after a power surge made their home uninhabitable. His brother was rescued by a local dog rescue and Wrecker was on "the list". The shelter is terribly overcrowded and Wrecker is a senior with some hip pain.....he would not have survived. Wrecker is an awesome dog! He is house trained, he likes kids, cats, dogs and bunny rabbits! He likes to take walks and play and give big kisses. Wrecker deserves to spend the rest of his days with a loving family.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mastiff / Mixed. Troy was adopted to a home 4 years ago. They had a change in their circumstances and can no longer keep him. Once an SCBR dog, always and SCBR dog, so even though we had no avaiable foster home, we took our dog back. He is in boarding right now and we hope to bust him out for the holidays! Troy never met a stranger - he loves ALL people! However, he does not like other dogs. Troy is completely house broken, knows his basic commands, loves to take walks and play! Troy particularly loves kids! Older children that can play with him are best!

From the Tampa Bay Times: Garth has got friends in low places all right, but Garth always manages to look up. This tall, 3-year-old country boy was rescued by animal control officers following a horrific attack by his former owner. Garth suffered severe injuries to his head, heart and spirit. Thanks to Second Chance Friends/Second Chance Boxer Rescue, the American Staffordshire Terrier has been given the extended recovery time needed. Garth is now ready for a real home with a yard. He's affectionate, likes toys, other dogs and pleasing humans. He is waiting for you to adopt him! http://bit.ly/AdoptGARTH Garth is very affectionate and playful, but prefers a home with no cats. He enjoys the company of other dogs and should be fine with a canine companion. See his story here: http://bit.ly/GARTH_onABCNEWS
