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.

Melana is as sweet as they come! She is a friendly gal, who loves other dogs and is great with people of all ages. Like most pups her age, she likes to romp in the yard, chase balls and, at the end of the day, curl up with her human. Because she is young, she would not be a good match for someone gone an entire workday. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives and eager to find a family to love! The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which helps with the cost of routine vet care. This fee DOES NOT INCLUDE spay/neuter if the pup is not already spayed/neutered. If they are not spayed/neutered, there is an additional $100 deposit, which IS REFUNDED once the pup is spayed/neutered. If the animal you are adopting is not already spayed/neutered, you will be required to sign a contract legally obligating you to have the animal altered. ***Note that puppy adoption fees most often help generate revenue that goes towards older, special needs animals that need our help. Surgeries, heartworm treatment, boarding costs....all things that often result in adoptable dogs and cats being left behind to be euthanized. So adopting a puppy saves not just one life, but many!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Potomac, MD
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Hound / Mixed. COURTESY POSTING Ashleigh is a 6 year old Lab/Hound mix with a beautiful red coat. She is medium-sized, weighing a little under 60 pounds. She has a relaxed and happy demeanor and is a very friendly dog. She loves attention from her people & cuddling. However, she is a bit excitable around food/treats and toys. She can be a tad picky about her canine pals, so would likely do best as an only dog, or with a submissive dog. She does, however, do fine with the resident cat. She has been around older (10+) children. She is crate-trained (immediately responds to the command "crate"), and does well in the crate during the day while people work. She has had basic obedience training, but does need some reminders to heel when walking on a leash. She is house trained, spayed and up-to-date on vetting.

A resilient dog is a dog who lived 9+ years outdoors on a chain, got infected with Heartworm, and has a recurring cherry eye and is strong as ever. A resilient dog is a dog who, through all of that, is the sweetest, human loving dog anyone could want to meet. Nora is that resilient dog and she is hoping for a change of luck. Nora would like to finally become the beloved member of the family that she deserves to be. Nora holds no grudges, she appreciates a warm, fluffy bed, regular meals and an endless pile of dog toys. In return, Nora will teach you what it is to forgive and forget the things outside of our control and move forward in positivity. She may be about 10 years old, but she is living life like a new born puppy. Nora is so perfectly behaved in the house, loves and respects other dogs and cats and is house trained already. Nora is about 20lbs and we think she is a terrier type mix. Nora has been treated for Heartworm and now has some coughing when she gets very excited, so a calm household is best for her. Nora would love to live out her years snoring on her dog bed and just finally being part of a family. If you have ever dreamed of being that special angel who adopts a senior(ish) dog and spoils them rotten- pick Nora. She is so deserving of that kind of unconditional love. Please don’t let her cherry eye deter you, it is more cosmetic than anything else. Pick Nora for her sweetness and gratitude. Pick Nora for her loyalty and affection. Be that special angel she has been waiting for her whole life.
