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.

      Posted Breed: English Bulldog / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $225.00 + $50 training deposit. Hello there - my name is Maggie! I'm a 10 month old English Bulldog/Beagle mix. I'm a sweet and funny girl that is looking for a forever family. Let me tell you why I'd be a great fit for you! I am house broken and sleep quietly in my crate. I know basic commands like "sit' and "come" - isn't that neat? I love to play with toys and in true Beagle form, I LOVE my food - which makes training me a lot more fun and easy! I get along with the resident dogs in the house and am learning how to interact with them. I would do best in a home with kids that are 8 or older. I'm just a big kid myself and would hate to knock a little one over while I learn to control my strength. I am still a puppy, so my forever family should be ready to continue my training to mold me in to the refined adult that I know I can be! I will do well with structure and guidance to show me things like not jumping up. I love a good scratching from my foster family and enjoy my friends! Do you think you could be my home? Apply for me today! Maggie's adoption fee is $225 + $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Rhodesian Ridgeback / Mixed. Adoption Fee: $225.00. Hello there! My name is Baskets and today I woke up and said to myself "Baskets my man, enough of this bachelor life and living on your own. It's time for you to find that special someone to settle down with." Before I came to stay with my friends here at Buffalo Cares I was homeless and picked up as a stray in North Carolina and went to a shelter there. A shelter is not a place where dogs like me can stay forever even though it was better than being on the streets by myself. They asked the kind folks at Buffalo Cares to please help me. And that's what they did! Being the happy fellow that I am - I've worked hard to put all of the past behind me and I really am ready to start my new life with that special person who will love and care for me forever. My friends tell me that I am about 5 or 6 years old; not a puppy and not a senior either -- I am "just perfect" according to my foster mom (awww shucks :) I am basically a straightforward, tail wagging, fun-loving, live-in-the-moment kind of guy. My previous life was hard tho and sometimes new people or strange things might worry me. But if someone I trust helps me through it - I do just fine. My friends at Buffalo Cares have helped me to learn some important things like how to walk nicely on a leash, sit, down, place, and stay (stay is still hard because I just wanna be with my people). I'm a big, handsome, goofy bundle of happiness and enthusiasm so I need to join a family with adults or older children. And because I have waited so long, I really need to be the only pet in the home so I can have all the lovin' you have to give. My needs really are simple and I just want to find a mature and experienced owner who's ready to meet my every need and spoil me beyond my wildest dreams. Sound like you? If so - I would love to hear from you! Baskets 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.

My foster mom says I am a "quick study" and just wants your approval and love! I currently live with two other big dogs and some cats.....but I am kept separate from the felines!

      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!
