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 - 5 years, 3 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.

      Buddy II

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. This is Buddy. We have another Buddy in the rescue right now, so we've dubbed him Buddy II. We are very fortunate to have write ups from both Buddy's previous owner and the young man in his foster home. Buddy is an absolute love bug. He loves going on adventures and making new friends, both canine and human. He is fantastic in the car, though he does have one quirk – if he is sitting in the passenger seat he will reach his paw across and "hold" your leg the entire car ride. He has done this ever since he was a puppy. In terms of energy level Buddy is the best of both worlds. He loves to go on hikes and is a great running partner, but is just as happy keeping you company during a Netflix binge-watching session. He is extremely food motivated, though sometimes gets distracted in exciting environments. He has responded very well in the past to clicker training, and knows several commands. These include sit, stay, down, head down (he puts his chin to the ground while laying down – very cute), paw, high five, wait and leave it. Anything he can do to earn praise and treats, Buddy is all for it! As far as dislikes, Buddy has very few. He is allergic to bees and will swell up in hives if stung. Luckily he is a very smart boy and does his best to avoid them. Aside from bees, Buddy is not extremely fond of stray cats or anyone outside the fenced yard for the most part. On leash outside of the yard he is A-Okay, but within the fence he can be a little territorial. When it comes to toys Buddy will tell you that he loves ALL toys. But beware, if it has stuffing or a squeaker Buddy will try to demolish and eat it. Also, if left out of his crate when you are not home any and all pillows in the house may spontaneously combust. Tough toys like nylabones last longer. Overall Buddy is an amazing dog and will make a great companion to any family. He has lived with children before (from the time he was brought home,) and dogs both male and female, both large and small. Though he prefers female dogs his canine brother Elvis was his BFF. If you're looking for a lifelong pal who wants nothing more than to love you and make you happy, look no further! From the young man he is living with: "Buddy is a great loving dog. He is a very calm and gentle dog. He loves to lay down with people and rest. He also loves to play outside and run around. He is very well trained, he gives paw when you give him a treat. Buddy is also potty trained. He gets along with other dogs very well. Buddy was a very hard dog to give up for adoption but I'm sure he will have a great home."

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Spruce is wondering if you're looking for an adorable new addition to the family. She is living in a foster home with another dog and her personality is starting to come out after only a short time in the new house. She has become more bold and confident in her actions when out of the crate, for example, bounding around the downstairs, where previously she was timid. She is becoming more vocal and letting you know what she wants, especially around meal times. She is a sweet girl who is still learning the ropes, but has a lot of potential. Spruce is not completely comfortable being on her own. She would tell you that as her confidence grows, she is sure things will be better, but right now she really enjoys being with her foster brother. She is very lucky to be living with an older dog who can help her settle in and understand that new things aren't always scary and almost always work out just fine! Her foster points out that Spruce does not like being touched on the head or having anything coming over the top of her head. This is such important information to know. It may seem like a little thing, but since we know it makes her uncomfortable we can adjust our actions to help make sure she's secure in her environment. Reading body language and allowing a dog to adjust at their own pace is so important when you are bringing a new dog home. Her favorite activity is going on pack walks with her foster brother. He is teaching her the ropes of city living. Spruce has a long, happy life ahead of her, if you think she'd fit into your family please submit an application.

He has a mild-moderate energy level, is sweet as can be, and is the best cuddler! Not only does he walk great on leash, but he knows a few basic commands too. Elvis loves car rides (he is a great passenger) and loves meeting new people. He is the perfect dog for a hike out on the trails or a lazy movie night in... as long as you don't mind him cuddling up next to you or laying on your lap!
