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: American Staffordshire Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $225+$50 Training Deposit. Hi! My name is Vixen, and the nice folks at Buffalo Cares all tell me that I am one foxy little lady! I came to Buffalo Cares all the way from Charlotte NC; where I was lost when picked up by the local shelter. At the time I was also sick with Parvovirus, but I survived with the help of some amazing people and now I am 100% healthy. My dream now is to find a home to call my own with a gentle person who will love me just the way I am. I am a happy and fun loving gal; I like going on short walks and I just love going on car rides. My most favorite thing of all is just to be with people. And maybe because of all that I have been through, I really need to find a home where I can hang my leash and have it be the only leash. I love people with my whole heart and I really just need to be your one & only 4-legged love. Aside from my pretty smile, you may have noticed that I do have one small imperfection. You can see in my photos that I have a deformed front leg. I was born like this; it just never grew like the rest of my legs. But this doesn't stop me one bit! I am a brave girl and I am determined to live life to it's fullest. Just so you know - I am crate trained and housebroken. And I can have my leash and toys packed up and ready to go faster than you can say "awwww isn't she adorable"! :-) Please give me a chance.....I am ready to just sit back and enjoy life with you! Vixen'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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $225.00. 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 working hard to learn that my crate is a safe place, but to be honest it is not my favorite thing. 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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: $275.00 + $50 training deposit. Winston is around 3.5 yrs old and is the cutest little guy! He loves to play fetch with stuffed toys, chew on nylabones, and cuddle on your lap. He loves his foster family deeply and requires some time to warm up to new people. Winston walks well on a leash, however, needs an owner who will provide structure and obedience to keep him quiet when he sees strangers walking by. He already knows how to sit, down, place, heel, and get off the couch. He is working on other commands as well. Winston is housebroken and crate trained but becomes anxious when the door is closed. He is a smart dog who learns quickly and wants your approval and love. He is looking for a quiet home that can give him the patience that he needs to learn to trust. A family to call his own who will provide structure and guidance so he can be the best dog he can! He currently lives with 2 adults, 2 dogs, and 3 cats (which he chases and is kept separate from since the cats don't share the enthusiasm). He has never been around children that we know of. Winston 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.
