Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ziggy is a deaf eight-year-old male American Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull) mix, with a one-track mind - FOOD.

A single adult or couple with no children and no other pets would be ideal. Ziggy loves to do tricks, and will gladly work hard to impress your friends and family! He knows many tricks such as spin, jump, bark on command, and even how to pray. He is good with kids in supervised situations and fine with other dogs also when supervised, but should not live with other dogs full-time. Ziggy has some allergies and takes Benadryl and eats a specfic brand of food (Limited Ingredient Duck/Potato) which is sold at PetSmart and many other stores. He also has arthritis and is on a glucosamine supplement. All pets are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and on a flea/tick preventative.

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.

      Luna The Chi...

      rescue
      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Luna! I’m about 4 years old and my foster parents say that I’m a “little goofball”, but I’m not sure what that means. Anyway, I really like to chase my owners around and when they chase me, that’s my favorite game; I don’t really like toys though – those are for pups. One of my favorite hobbies is redecorating – I like to move my bed around the house, especially to where my family is. I love being close to my family and getting all up in their business, but I sometimes like to do my own thing too. All said, I’m really sweet and bond hard with my family. I’m very obedient, I know the words “sit”, “come”, “lay down”, and “crate”, but I really like it when you say “Wanna go outside!?” My fosters make me sleep in the crate at night and I’m okay with that; just as long as it’s covered up with a blanket – I like the dark when I sleep. Before I came to All Paws, I didn’t live in the best environment for me – I don’t really like to share my food and bed with other dogs. I ended up getting in a big fight with my brother and then my past parents didn’t want me anymore. They said I was going to get put down. Since then, I lived with a trainer to learn how to be nicer and more obedient, but I still sometimes growl, mostly when I get caught off-guard or am in unfamiliar environments. When this happens, my fosters sternly tell me to “stop” and I then know that I need to behave and correct myself. I think the best kind of home for me would be one where I can be an only kid (no other pets or children) and where I can have a loving family – that’s all I really want. I’m okay with neighbor dogs, but I don’t want them using my things! The fosters say: Luna is a good dog that is very loving, but sometimes exhibits possessive behavior. She has growled at us when surprised, but has never bitten; she is aware that biting is wrong. She has lived with a trainer for six weeks to go through obedience training to address this and she has a ‘training plan’, which are suggestions for how to handle me in certain situations. But we found that she really just needs love and a calm home – she’s been great with us so far! All pets are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and on a flea/tick preventative. Cats are tested for FIV/FeLV and dogs are tested for heartworms. Adoption fee is $110 for cats and $150 for dogs. To meet this pet, please fill out a dog application or cat application.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Faye is a very affectionate and loving 1 year old girl. She is blind but you would never know. She adjusts to her new surroundings beautifully!! It only took her a day to learn my home. She is crate trained and potty trained. She gets super excited around children because she can't see and they want to touch her face and she's just not sure about that so she would rather have a home without young children. She gets along great with all three of my dogs though she does get super excited so she would need a young dog that loves to play as much as her. Faye loves her walks and bones and has to sleep at night in bed with me and her foster siblings. She's just a big cuddle bug!! If your interested in meeting Faye you can reach me at my email and by filling out an app for her.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Ranger is a 3 year old 3 legged Pointer/Hound mix. He was found as a stray in Texas County Missouri under a bridge after either being thrown out of a car or being hit by one and going off the bridge. Snuggle rescued him from a county shelter and brought him to St Louis to have surgery to repair a broken palate in his mouth and a broken shoulder. Surgery was successful, but after several months of therapy, he still had no feeling in his leg or foot. The leg had to be amputated. He is going great and doesn't let 3 legs hold him back. He is very sweet and loving and needs a family of his own! He can be a little bossy with other dogs till he gets to know them, but he currently lives with 4 other ones and does fine. He is a strong boy so would probably do better with older kids! All pets are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and on a flea/tick preventative.

      Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier (short coat). Meet Luna, a one year old Staffordshire Terrier weighing about 50 lbs. She was found in a parking lot and after many different attempts to locate the owner, they never came forward. The vet thinks she may have been used as a breeding dog as she has had at least one litter of puppies. Luna is a very sweet, high energy lady who wants to please and loves everyone she meets. She gets along with other dogs but has not been tested around cats. She loves to play, especially with balls and toys and thinks kids toys are hers too. She is in a foster home with small kids and grabs their toys but you can take it out of her mouth with no hesitation from her. She does not resource guard her food or toys from people but she does seem to resource her food against other dogs so we just feed her separately. She is potty trained, house trained, and knows how to sit. She currently sleeps in bed with her human foster brother and enjoys putting her head on his pillow. She is currently in foster care with a boxer/mastiff mix, beagle/min pin mix, and poodle mix. She likes to wrestle and play chase with them but the poodle mix isn’t having it so she leaves him alone. She still has a lot of energy so should go to a home where someone is active with her (jogs, walks, etc). Because she likes to run, a fenced yard is required. Another playful dog would be a bonus. With her being high energy and strong, no kids under 10 years old (though she loves kids…. And their toys). All pets are spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and on a flea/tick preventative. Cats are tested for FIV/FeLV and dogs are tested for heartworms. Adoption fee is $110 for cats and $150 for dogs. To meet this pet, please fill out a dog application or cat application. Not able to adopt? Inquire about fostering or sponsoring this pet.

      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Dozer is a courtesy post made by All Paws Rescue, Inc. The fees, policies and guarantees that apply to All Paws Rescue pets do not apply to Dozer. To adopt Dozer, please contact his current owner, Jennifer Palmer, at 314-560-6036 or by email at palmerfam4@gmail.com. Dozer is a six year old male Catahoula Leopard Dog mix in search of a loving home. He is approximately 60 lbs and has beautiful markings. He is an affectionate and cuddly dog. He is fully house trained, non-destructive and listens to basic commands. He loves to play and go for walks, but does not require tons of activity. He is kind of a couch potato, especially if it is in your lap! He is currently living with a cat and has no problems. He does not like other dogs though, he wants to sniff them but does not like it when they return the hello. Dozer needs to live in a home that does not have children around. The unpredictability of children can make him nervous and he could snap at or bite them. After bonding with his new family he will be perfect dog for an adult family that wants a loyal, loving companion. He is fixed, healthy and up to date on vaccinations.
