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.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi there! It's me, Buddy. I can't believe that no one has adopted me yet! I'm a cute, young, housebroken dog that's got just the right amount of energy, (not hyper like puppies.) I just love people! How have you passed me by? Call today to meet me in person to see how awesome I am! 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. This makes me easy to find, but also makes me really bad at hide and seek. 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 - 1 year, 3 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Max is truly a gentle giant. He is big, and silly, sometimes a little timid, but he is always friendly and loving. Max gets nervous and may hide if someone new comes into the house. But after a few minutes he warms up and wants some attention. He loves to get pet and be with his people. He is learning to walk well on a leash. He loves car rides and if you sit on the floor he will sit on your lap. He will follow you around the house and just want to be with you all the time. When you wake up in the morning he says hello with a stretch and a gentle howl, very cute. Max doesn't jump on the furniture and is happy to sleep on his doggie bed and not in yours. He is house broken and crate trained. He has had some training and is a very quick learner! Max is a true treasure and a loving big boy. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight 75 pounds - Age - 5 years, 5 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Black Mouth Cur / Mixed. Hi, I’m Penny! I ended up at a local shelter after a run of bad luck - I was found injured and lost - but my friends there loved me so much they made sure I got another chance at the happy home I deserve. I am sometimes shy when meeting new people, but once I realize they are nice I show them that I am one of the most affectionate pups ever! I enjoy the quiet life, and have been known to bark at noises that disturb my peace (if you don’t want to miss your mail delivery, I am great at alerting you). I live with another dog, and I really like playing with him. I also get along with the dog-savvy cats in my foster home. I know lots of basic obedience commands, I am house trained, and I behave well in my crate. I am what you might consider a medium energy dog. I am equally happy with a long walk or a long cuddle session. I love hiking, treats, “squirrel patrol” in the yard, splashing in my baby pool, and chasing tennis balls. My most favorite thing is getting and giving love. I think you should meet me so you can rub my belly! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 61 lbs, Age - 3 years, 4 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      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 loves her crate and will go in on her own when she's ready for a break from the excitement of running and playing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 35 lbs, Age - 1 year, 9 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index
