Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Irish Water Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! My name is Apache and I'm a tall lanky boy with BIG feet and a coat as soft as cashmere! I'm about a year old and weigh about 70 lbs. Volunteers at the shelter I came from describe me as '5 STARS...sweet, soft and snuggly'...yup, that's me. I am now crate-trained and walk nicely on a leash. My perfect day would be to wake up, run outside to do my business, as I do in my foster home, come in, have a snack while you have your coffee and then go play outside or go for a walk. I'm very easy. BTW, no kitties for me! TOO much fun to chase! I would be a great fit for any family situation, where kids are 10 plus. Plus, I am already neutered and up-to-date on my shots. Won't you consider me? Fill out an application to adopt me on www.ThePolishedPitbull.com. My adoption fee is $150.00 and every adoption starts as a two week trial 'sleepover' to ensure a good fit. We make every effort to get back to applicants within 24 hours, sometimes less.

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.
