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.

I'm Abel, nice to meet you! Let's start with the important stuff - I am housebroken and know basic commands! I am about two years old and am learning lots of things since being flown up to Buffalo from Texas, where I was taken in as a stray. I came all the way up North to find my forever home - I'm liking it so far but people keep talking about "snow" and I'm not totally sure what that is, but I'm sure I'll find out! I like to go for long walks, play in the yard - and when your ready for me to come in just holler my name and I'll come running! I do well with other dogs and LOVE them so if you've got other doggies at home, that's ok with me! I love to be close to my humans and am a loyal sweetie. Do you think I could be your forever best friend? Apply to adopt me today! Abel'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: Cattle Dog (short coat). Hi! My name is Bosco! I'm a stunning young cattle dog and I've been told I give great kisses. I love affection, especially belly rubs. I like everyone I meet. I shouldn't brag, but I'm extremely smart. I thrive on attention and love to learn. I bet I'd do great in Rally Obedience. I quickly mastered sit, down, place and stay. Treats are wonderful and I always take them gently. I'm a little nervous around new things, like gates opening and closing, and loud noises sometimes startle me. I'm told my vision is impaired, but really sometimes things are just a little closer than I think. I am about to start heartworm treatment, which requires crate rest and minimal activity. I like going outside, but need to be kept on my leash until I am finished with my crate rest. If I am adopted during my treatment, the rescue continues to provide the treatment at no cost to the adopter. Heartworm is completely curable so you don't have to worry. If you think you might like to be my mom or dad, please fill out an application today. I would love to meet you. Bosco'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 (medium coat). Hi! My name is Cheley and I am 4 years old. I have traveled to Buffalo all the way from the Bahama’s. My foster dad always talks about how sweet and calm I am. I am great with other dogs, cats and kids. When I first meet you I can be shy, but once I’m comfortable I love to play and get pet. I am house broken, spayed and I am good when left alone. I enjoy my walks on the leash and I don’t pull too much! I am healthy and up to date on all my shots. I am a gentle soul who is doing well learning how to live in a house instead of on the streets, my ideal home will continue their patience with me as I acclimate. Since I can be shy, I'd do best with only older children. I can’t wait to find my forever home! I will be the best decision you ever make - apply for me today! Cheley'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: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello, I am Boomerang! I came up to Buffalo all the way from North Carolina in search of my forever family. I've been enjoying all the nice folks up here who are helping me along the way. I love to go for walks and to chew on bones and toys. My other favorite activities include having my ears rubbed and in general just being petted! I'm looking for my forever family, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the irony of me using the word "looking". You see - (there I go again), I'm sight impaired. I'm not entirely blind, but my sight is surely hindered - it doesn't bother me much since I've got a nose for sniffing and ears for hearing! I like being by my humans side or in the safety of my crate, I am housebroken and crate trained. Could I be the perfect match for you? Apply for me today! Boomerang's adoption fee is $175 + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Duke and I’m super sweet and quite a character. My foster family is going to miss me so much because I am always going on adventures with them and their dog. My former father left me at a doggie daycare, where I met my foster family’s dog, Nala. My foster family was nice enough take me home until I get adopted to spend time with my best friend! We are always playing tug of war and goofing around together. I LOVE other dogs and would like to go to a house with another dog friend to play with me. I’m very playful but once I start snoring it’s hard to wake me up. I sleep in my own bed and like to be covered with a “blankie" in cold weather. (A sweater would be nice in winter too, but so far I haven’t found one that fits over my big head.) I don’t chew or have accidents in the house, and though I don’t understand the concept of “fetch” I’m obsessed with my glow-in-the-dark ball and carry it everywhere. I like to bark when someone comes to the door, but am quiet most of the time. I am also good with children and will cover them with kisses. Every night, I love walking around the block and am getting much better with my leash. At almost 2 years old I was only recently neutered. I had a cherry eye and had surgery to fix it with the help of my friends at Buffalo C.A.R.E.S and their fundraising efforts! I love to cuddle and am looking forward to meeting my forever family. Duke's adoption fee is $225 + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (medium coat). Winston is a small, funny dog with a big personality! He is around 3 years old and likes to play fetch with stuffed toys and balls, go for walks, and cuddle up to you. He loves his foster family deeply, however, requires some time to warm up to new people. Winston has been working hard on his training and will thrive in a family that will provide the structure and guidance he needs to be the best dog he can! He is housebroken and goes into his crate- but his favorite sleeping place is under the bed! He is friendly with other dogs and currently shares his foster home with a hound mix, a Shepard mix, and 3 cats. Winston likes to chase the cats though so they are kept separate, since they don't share the enthusiasm. He has never been around children that we know of and would do best in a quiet environment without lots of company. In exchange for your love, training, and wet food he promises to keep your chest warm and your yard free of squirrels and birds. He wants your approval and learns quickly. He is the perfect mix of sweet and spunky! What are you waiting for? Winston's adoption fee is $275 plus a $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course. All dogs come fully up to date on shots, microchipped, heart worm tested, de-wormed, on flea and heart worm preventative, and spayed/neutered.
