Posted Breed: English Bulldog / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). In Foster Home/Training Ike - Available for Rescue or Adoption 09/18/2015 Male, 1-2 Years Old, 65 Pounds, Boxer/Staffie Mix White County Animal Shelter Sparta, TN 931-761-3647 wcanimalshelterspartatn@gmail.com Please allow me to introduce myself... my name is Ike, and the folks here say I get the award as the longest resident at the shelter. As you can see, I have been here for a looong time. They are very nice to me here and take great care of me but what I really want is a home of my own! I love people and would be best suited for a home with adults and older children, let's say about 15 or older and they need to be dog savvy. I have a zest for life and love to play with toys. The squeaker kind are my favorite however they do not always last too long, as I love to find the squeak. I get along with people but am very selective of my furry friends. I would prefer to be your one and only and have all your love to myself. I would rather not be chained or penned as I am not good at being a loner. I need someone to love me that has patience, and is willing to help me with obedience training. I am a good boy and I already know some basic commands, like sit and stay. I just need more daily practice and I will have it down pat again. I am neutered, current on all my vaccines and preventatives. If you think I sound like just the boy for you, please contact the White County Animal Shelter! 931-761-3647 or wcanimalshelterspartatn@gmail.com White County Animal Shelter Shelter Hours: Monday: CLOSED Tuesday: CLOSED Wednesday: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM Thursday: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM Friday: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM Saturday: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM Sunday: 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM Promote Your Page Too

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.
