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.

      Age: Young
      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Great Pyrenees (long coat). My name is Houdini but my foster home calls me Dini for short. I am a 2 1/2 yr old Great Pyrenees. I came to Buffalo C.A.R.E.S. from a shelter in Kentucky. My foster mom describes me as a loveable gentle giant. I enjoy playing with plastic water bottles but my favorite thing is to go for car rides! I am potty and crate trained. And guess what!? I'm deaf, but I'm starting to learn hand signs. My foster mom says I am really smart because I learned to sit really quick! I love my foster family, but I'm looking for my forever family where maybe I can get my own couch to lounge on! Could it be you? Houdini will do best in a home with a family that understands the Great Pyrenees breed and temperament tendencies. Houdini will thrive in a structured environment where he is given continued guidance and training to be the best he can be. Houdini'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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      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.

      Location: Tonawanda, NY
      Posted Breed: Airedale Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Kristen F Hi! My name is Boss - but don't let that bother you, I'm not a bossy guy. I am about 6 years old, a lab/scruffy mix (possibly Airedale). I've already been neutered, am microchipped, and up to date on my shots. The facts are now out of the way...let’s get to the fun stuff. They call me Boss, but I'm really not bossy at all. I used to live with lots of dogs, some furry creatures (aka cats), and I love, love, love children!! So that means that I'm good with all animals! My foster mom even has a bird in the house. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that! I may be six years old, but I enjoy long walks on the beach or wherever you want to go...parks, woods, sidewalks, it's all good! Throw a ball, I'll bring it back to you...sometimes. When we're done, I promise to curl up next to you on the couch and keep you warm through the long winter months. I especially like belly rubs, and treats...lots of treats! Please fill out an application to meet me if you think you might be my special family! Boss'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.

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      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.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Hello there! My name is Georgia, and I am very pleased to be able to tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a show-stopping (if I do say so myself...) 4 year old Boxer mix AND I'm a registered Canine Good Citizen! All the nice folks at Buffalo Cares keep saying the nicest things about me, and my goodness it's enough to make a girl blush... My foster mom is always telling me that I'm "as pretty as a peach" and then she kisses me on my nose (which I really like - just don't tell foster mama that because she won't stop). I have to honestly also say that I am a very good cuddler and I adore just being near my favorite people. Even though I hesitate to brag here - because it is un-becoming for a lady - all of my friends at Buffalo Cares are always complimenting me on how well mannered I am; just like a real Soutern Belle! Why I've even been to "finishing school" . This fine finishing school is called K9 Connection, and it is one of the best training facilities for dogs in the whole wide world I think (and the nice teachers there say I can even keep coming to school after I find my forever home! How special is that?!) Because of this awesome training I can walk politely at your side on a leash, and I will stop and sit and look at you when you stop walking. Also, I know how to go to my "place" and wait there until you tell me to take a break; and I know how to sit, lay down, & take treats nicely just like a polite girl should. My closest friends have only 2 legs, and I would prefer to be the only 4-legged family member in my forever home please. And while I do adore people, I would do best with children over 10. I just love to be pampered and fussed over, and really I have so much love in me that I could fill even that whole big beautiful mansion called Tara from "Gone With The Wind." But I don't need a mansion to make me happy; I just need someone like you to love.....So what do y'all think? Could I be your very own little sip of Southern Comfort? I will keep your heart warm and bring a smile to your lips forever and ever so.....what are you waiting for? Apply for me today! Georgia's adoption fee is $175 (thanks to a generous sponsor) + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course. Georgia comes with free classes from K9 Connection. 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). Meet Abigail! She goes by many nicknames and loves when you sweet talk her! We often refer to her here in her foster home as Abi Abernathy! Abigail came into Buffalo C.A.R.E.S. after roaming the streets on her own. Abigail is so sweet and just loves attention. She is a total cuddle bug. She is happy to have a soft place to curl up and snore away! And boy does she snore! The softer the blankets the better! No pillows please, as she will most likely just flip them on the floor. Abigail has very good manners! She will sit and walks well on a leash! She has resided in a foster home with four other dogs, but was kept separate to give her a comfortable space to re-coop. Abi rides well in the car, too. Abi is pretty quiet unless she is alerting you about something. Abigail prefers to be off leash in a fenced space to do her business and will hold it very long waiting for that opportunity. She is crate trained and responds well to her name. Abigail has the cutest little skipping run she does, and the vet identified a prior leg injury that has healed. Abigail is a solid 54 pounds of short haired, black with a white chest, true companion dog. She has been exposed to a teenager in her foster home and just adores her. Abigail is timid about her feet being touched and will require structured greetings with other dogs. You have to meet this precious girl and fall in love with her! She loves to give kisses as well! Abi'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.
