Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is Billie Ripken and I love life. They say I never have a bad day but I just believe you need to live life to the fullest and with lots of gusto. My foster mama says I have the best smile and give the best hugs and kisses. Some may say I need a job, but foster mom says I need a home that will tire my brain and my body. So, I am an active girl who likes to learn and do things, really I am no couch potato.Swimming is my favorite hobby, along with chasing my ball, and hiking. I have done some really fun things like a rally competition, dock diving practice, and scent work. My foster sister would tell you that she loves me and loves to play with me but I sometimes forget she gets tired. The only thing I am scared of is having my nails trimmed but give me some peanut butter and I will let you trim away! I am cute when I give hugs. I am silly when I climb trees, But mostly my foster parents think I am special and unique because I am not like most dogs. They are all about keeping me busy. I have done lots of training, and know sit, stay/wait, down, heel, I have great leash manners, and I'm so smart I know commands in German as well. My special tricks are circle spin, front, right, left, with me, and find it, I would love a home where I get to go on adventures, learn knew things, swim, and play with a friend, and have someone who understands I am special and who sees the world as bright and sunny has I do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 45 lbs, Age - 4 years, 9 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

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: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi! I'm Buddy and I'm applying to be your buddy. I'm looking for someone special who will feed me, love me, play with me, feed me, pet me, teach me and (did I mention) feed me. I love food, so my foster mom thinks I'll be easy to train. You'll get a loyal friend who will always be happy to see you. I give great snuggles and lots of licks! My tail is always wagging so my foster mom can tell where I am by my thumping. When I come in from outside, I race around the house to find my foster mom. If she's on the couch, I try to leap up into her lap. She thinks it's cute but she's trying to stop me because I won't always be little. (What? Aren't all dogs lap dogs?!) I'm a big snuggler! I probably should have been called Romeo because of all the kisses I give out. I pick up on things really quickly. After a few days at my foster house, I learned that foster mom wants me to wait for my food nicely; so I sit by the gate. When she's ready, I run to my crate & wait for her. If you're pretty sure we should meet, please submit an application! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 37 lbs, Age - 8 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Diamond ended up in the shelter at nine years old after having a litter of puppies. We don't know the details of her past, but we know she's ready for a wonderful future! She has been living the good life at her foster home, and is such a loving and sweet dog . The lady at the shelter who wanted to find a rescue for her so bad even sent a package of treats home with her with a cute little note on it wishing her the best of luck! Diamond is housebroken and crate trained. She knows basic obedience skills such as sit, stay and down. Some of her favorite things are meeting people, going for car rides and laying on you while training you to be a couch potato. She doesn't seem to care for cats, so a cat free environment would be best for her. Diamond is a great family dog and will reward you with a big smile at the end of a long day. If you have a spot in your life for this mature girl please complete an application. She deserves to spend the rest of her days in a loving home, and she's ready to return every bit of that love. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 63 lbs, Age - 9 years, 8 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Posted Breed: Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! I’m Hailey ~ Let me tell you all about me! I love snuggling, showing off my toys (my favorites are a squeaky bone and a stuffed gator!), going for rides in the car, and I LOVE getting brushed. I have recently taken up a new hobby..weight pulling! I pull lots of weight on a cart when my foster Dad tells me to "pull" and I love it! I have already won tons of awards and my foster Dad says it's a great way for me to burn off extra energy and have a sense of purpose. Everyone needs a sense of purpose, right?!? I live with a trainer, so I work on obedience in my everyday life. I'd love for my new family to learn what I know so we can keep this up. My foster Dad has even offered training for my new family to help to make the transition to my new home easier for everyone! *Hailey is a courtesy post for Show Me Your Dog Training. We will forward any applications to them to process. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 59 lbs, Age - 6 years ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index
