Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Cocoa is a smart girl who is always eager to learn and have new experiences with her favourite leash holder. She is about 5 years old so her silly puppy days are far behind her. Cocoa does well with other dogs and even cats when the initial introductions are taken very slowly and managed. She is initially hesitant, but when the introductions are done well she makes firm friends. Because of this she will need a person who will support her in facing her fears and commit to continued training. Cocoa likes to hike, swim, run errands, take car rides, play fetch, learn new skills and tricks. She really is ready for any adventure you can think of for her. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 55 lbs, Age - 5 years 4 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. Hello! My name is Freya. I am a young petite girl (only 30 pounds) who is looking for an active forever family. I know that I am still technically homeless, but can you believe that I went from living alone out in the world to living with a fantastic dog trainer as her foster dog?!? How lucky am I? She is taking really good care of me and has shown me how fun it can be to be a well educated and well mannered family dog. During my training, I have made lots of dog friends who I love to see for playtime! I like to spend evenings with my people snuggling on the sofa or playing a game of fetch! My foster mom says that I am smart as a whip and would love to continue learning different dog sports and acitvities…I tried out weight pulling and had a blast! I come with free training with Show Me Your Dog so that we can learn to be the best partners ever! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 30 lbs, Age - 2 years, 4 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: White Marsh, MD
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Hazel is an older lady who came to Bella's Bully Buddies when her owners could no longer care for her and reached out to find her a loving home. She was friendly right away with adults and teenagers, and after being introduced to the household dogs, Hazel clearly knew her place was at the bottom of the pack and behaved respectfully. She's is housetrained and knows the "sit" command. Even though she's a little older she is still more than able to learn new tricks! She enjoys outdoor time and playing for a little while with the other dogs, but her favorite thing is being scratched. Belly, back, neck, chest . . . it's all good. On a perfect day you will find Hazel snoring on the sofa while curled up next to a person or going for a car ride. Her foster family says she is a snuggle bug -- she likes to curl up next to you and rest her head on your legs or lap She's not fond of being in the dark, and too many steps on a flight of stairs bother her, most likely because she's a little older and probably feels those stairs more than a younger dog would. If you have room in your heart to give his pretty lady a loving home for the rest of her days, please submit an application. There's no love like the love of an old dog! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 40 lbs, Age - 10 years, 3 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: White Marsh, MD
      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, 6 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      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, 7 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Location: White Marsh, MD
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Paisley is an incredibly loving and playful little pup. She is housebroken and crate trained. She knows several commands, such as sit, stay, down, and paw. Her favorite things to play with are squeaky toys and a rope pull toy. Paisley is very curious and always willing to help, windows are her specialty! She's a professional snuggler, preferring it if you'll lay on the couch so she can lay on top of you. Her adorable gaze makes it hard to disturb her peace, so if you need a little couch time here's the perfect excuse! She's very curious about the cats in her foster home and is desperately trying to get to know them, but they are typically aloof to a new animal in THEIR home. She loves her crate and will go in on her own when she's ready for a break from the excitement of running and playing. Do you have what it takes to turn this "PUPPY LOVE" into a life time commitment?? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 35 lbs, Age - 1 year, 1 month ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 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
