Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Rock and I’m a 3 year old pit bull mix. I was found in Canada. Pit bulls are banned in Canada and I was going to be euthanized. Lucky for me some nice people stood up for me and brought me to New York. I am currently looking for my forever home. I love to play fetch. I also love to play in the water and swim! My obedience is TOP NOTCH!! I’m excellent on walks and on leash. My recall is so awesome that I can be off leash at times. I am currently training in Agility and I LOVE it! I’m housebroken and neutered. I am also crate trained. I’m current on all my vaccinations and healthy. I only ask that I’m the only dog in the home. I don’t want to have to share your attention! I am currently fostered at Canine Academy. I would love to find a place to call my own! Rock is a courtesy post. If interested, please call Colleen at 716-759-9406. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered. If interested in learning more or adopting please fill out an application on our website at www.buffalocares.org.

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: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Hi there! My name is Cordy and I am a young, fun loving cattle dog/mix. I was found as a stray in North Carolina and was brought to a nearby shelter. I was never claimed and the volunteers at the shelter saw how special I was. They reached out to Buffalo CARES and here I am! I absolutely love my new life in Buffalo! I currently live with my foster parents, two large breed male dogs, a small breed female dog, a bunny and a ferret. I love the dogs in my foster home and get along with them perfectly. I have only interacted with the small animals through a cage, I honestly do not find them very exciting. According to my foster parents, I am very smart. They are impressed that I know how to “sit, come and stay” and am completely housebroken. I am almost completely crate trained. I sleep through the night without making a peep but whine when my foster parents leave the room - who wouldn't? I am also working on my leash manners. Two of my favorite things are playing fetch and snuggling with my foster family. If you are looking for the perfect companion, please fill out an application today. I'd love to meet you! Cordy's adoption fee is $225. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Gigi. I’m eight months old and still very much a puppy, although I’m probably not going to get much bigger. I was rescued by a nice lady in Columbia who found me covered with ticks and a skin infection, but that’s all behind me and after my long journey to Buffalo and some care from my foster parents I’m a happy health pup! I’m just a little girl but I’ve got a big personality and I know you’ll enjoy having me around. I’m a little nervous about new people but give me just a little time and we will be the best of friends. I enjoy going for walks, playing with other dogs, cuddling on the couch and I really like playing with toys. I know sit and I’m working on giving a paw. I’d love to learn more tricks for you! I have a lot of fun playing with other dogs, playing tug of war with toys, chasing each other around and wrestling. I think I would love to live in a home with another dog but I’m sure I could be the only dog in a house too. I'm house trained and crate trained too – I’ll go right in my crate when its time and I like taking naps in there too. I hope you’ll come meet me soon! Gigi's adoption fee is $225. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Maya is a retriever mix who came to us all the way from Columbia and is very glad to be here! Maya was hit by 2 cars and was paralyzed for a time but she didn't let that bother her- she dragged her self with her front legs. She was given some treatment and in time was able to walk. Now she runs around the house and enjoys going for walks (especially when its warm out!). Maya is a special dog looking for a family who will be patient with her incontinence issues (from her injury). She currently lives with 2 adult humans , 2 dogs, and 3 cats (but the cats are separate due to one of the other dogs). She is a very sweet girl and is friendly with everyone she has met on her walks. Unless she has something to say she is quiet dog and will rub against you for attention which she can not get enough of. Maya loves food, playing with toys, and soft blankets. If you think you could be the right person - apply today! Maya's adoption fee is $225. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

While I love playing and goofing around, my favorite thing to do is cuddle with my humans and other dogs! I currently live with 2 larger breed dogs, but I also do well with small dogs and animals. I am looking a forever family who will give me the love I need and deserve! Do you think I could cuddle my way into your heart?
