More About American Staffordshire Terrier Breed
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.

      BILBO

      rescue
      Breed: Dachshund-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Funny story from the photographer's viewpoint. For the first couple of weeks of Bilbo's arrival at RPC I was not able to take his picture because he was having some issues and not ready to meet new people. This week I got the list of dogs that needed to have pics taken and Bilbo was on the list. I was told we'd do him last and to be prepared to be growled at. Since I had not seen him I was apprehensive about what kind of dog I was about to meet. I pictured a very large, highly excitable dog that I would have to be very cautious with. The door to the room opened and on-leash in walks little Bilbo. The exact opposite of what I had in mind. He was the perfect gentleman. We got along very well and he even ate cookies from my hand. Two year old Bilbo needs to be in a very structured, adult home. If you want to meet this little guy (We can't guarantee he won't growl at you.) call or visit RPC 207 743-8679. Call the shelter for more details and availability of this pet. 207 743-8679. For more information about Responsible Pet Care, please visit our web site at www.rpc.petfinder.com.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Peggy is a very special girl. She had a very hard time adjusting to shelter life when no one came to claim her. It has taken her some time to learn to trust people again and inside this beautiful creature we have found a loving, kind, silly and playful being. Several meetings with Peggy will be necessary for her to get to know and trust you. When she does, you will have a devoted friend for life! She will need a quiet home with adults only where she can concentrate on building her own confidence. A family with an understanding of pack leadership and obedience training would be great for her. Peggy has a lot of love to give!!!! Call the shelter for more details and availability of this pet. 207 743-8679.

      PERRITA

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). She's here...She has finally arrived from the devastated island of Puerto Rico!!! She has survived several years on her own, alone, hungry and searching for love! Our beautiful girl "Perrita" lived for a long time within the confines of a construction yard, hiding under building material for shelter. Once she found freedom, litters of puppies followed and so did bad people who threw boiling water at her to make her go away...and she still has the scars to prove it! Finally the hurricane season of 2017.... This brave dog survived the wrath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria which was a direct hit on Puerto Rico. She finally found her way to safety through Defensa Ricon who found her a good place to stay. They gave her medical treatment, vaccinations and she is now spayed. However, more sad news for this girl. She not only tested positive for Anaplasmosis and Ehrlichia but she is also Heartworm positive. That's when RPC stepped in and reached out to the wonderful people at Defensa to help. A magnificent effort by a group of courageous and dedicated women with Defensa and Responsible Pet Care have now bonded for life while working together to get Perrita from Puerto Rico to Boston's Logan Airport where she was met by RPC Canine Director, Pat Ingersoll, who transported her directly to the safety of RPC. Now, Perrita and "her staff at RPC" are getting acquainted and sharing stories. Being a warm weather girl, she is building her wardrobe of sweaters and warm coats to keep her warm in the cold Maine temperatures and snow and she is looking for more to add to her collection! She will soon begin her Heartworm treatment and that's where YOU all come in! She will need lots of medical care, treatments, testing and vet visits to get her well again. We hope that you will make a donation to help this wonderful and very special dog on her road to recovery. Donations in her name may be sent to Responsible Pet Care at P. O. Box 82, Norway, Maine, 04268 or visit our website, www.rpc.petfinder.com to make a donation on line. You can also donate to her story on Pound Wishes mentioned in the article below! Once our little Perrita has completed treatment, she will be ready for a new home of her own. If you would like too meet her or possibly foster her, please call the shelter at 207-743-8679 and speak with Pat or Lucille!!! Please follow her updates on our Facebook Page (Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills). And see her whole story here below going all the way back to September 2017.....
