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: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (medium coat). 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.

I am currently living with three other dogs and love to run around with them. I am looking for my forever family. Could that be you?

      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 also think I'd make a good jogging partner. 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. Little active kids reaching out toward me tend to startle me since things seem so close, so I'm hoping for a home with kids over 6. 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.

I weigh in at a whopping 110lbs. but I could stand to lose a bit of it - but don't judge me! My foster family calls me a "gentle giant". I am housebroken and know when to ask to go outside. I'm also crate trained though I'm such a good boy, I don't even really need it. I prefer the couch or bed for a rest. I am food and treat motivated - which shows a bit in my waistline. I currently live with 3 other dogs and 2 kids - one is 9 and one is a just a year and a half. I've not lived with a cat yet but did meet one and I seemed to be ok with it. I am a big lazy guy who likes to lounge around for most of the day with my humans. My foster mom says I am the perfect guy and I deserve the best of homes. Could it be yours?

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello there! My name is Joey and, between you me and the wall, I know I've got that irresistible "hunk" thing going on. But I'll let you in on a little secret; on the inside I'm more of the "can I really give you my whole heart?" kind of guy. I like to take my time and get to know you ~ and once I love you I won't care if you're rich or good looking or can sing & dance. All I care about is the size of your heart, and if you'll make room in your life and home for me.... I'm a little over 2 years old, and still learning, but I am already housebroken and crate trained. Car rides and walks are some of my most favorite things. And I like to play with some doggie friends too; especially the pretty girls! I am going to group obedience classes (thank you K9 Connection!) and I am proud to say that I am an excellent student. I walk well on a leash, and know sit, down, place, wait and come. Because I do so well in basic obedience I am even able to go to something called Rally - which is where all the best dogs get to go to class! Pretty sweet - huh?! So if you're looking for a smart, handsome, sensitive fellow to be your BFF - I might just be the one! I would sure like to spend my whole life loving you <3 Joey's adoption fee is $225.00+ $50 training deposit that is refunded upon proof of completion of an obedience course.

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!
