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.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Boxer Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Linus is as good as it gets!!! He had a wonderful owner who died, unfortunately, and he was taken to the shelter. During his brief stay there, the volunteers adored him. In their own words: A volunteer writes: He has been beautifully cared for and loved. He is very sociable and friendly, knows his way around people and to make himself appreciated. Linus is indeed a very pleasant pooch to be around. He is a great walker, likely very house trained , polite with other dogs met and a wonderful ball player. Take note that he does not guard his stuff and could shame a soccer player with his talents. My biggest awwwwww moment came when another volunteer came to the fence to say hello, and Linus ran to get his toy to show it to her. He stood against the fence, tail wagging with pride and I just melted……..he was so proud of his toy. He’s housetrained, has an amazing disposition with both people and other dogs. He has lived well with a cat, is neutered and is going to make someone the most amazing companion. He’s an absolutely awesome dog who despite his unexpected change in circumstance is simply happy to make new friends. So, what are you waiting for: dog and cat friendly, housetrained....LINUS is a TEN in every aspect and is waiting for you in the Stroudsburg area of the Pocoons...Loves the snow by the way!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Can you picture how cute Odie would be if he was in your hands, safe, well cared for and loved? When at the shelter, he was thin and his coat was worn and dull. His temperament is very very friendly. Volunteers at the NYC shelter where he came from said that "he is very sociable, sweet, fun to be with and quite affectionate, coming on the lap for caresses and rolling on his back for belly rubs. I so love his face, mostly when he eats so enthusiastically my duck jerkies. He is a good walker and has been proper with his peers in playgroups." He has been all that and more here in rescue...a total lovebug. Apply to adopt him at thepolishedpitbull.com Click on Adopt a Dog.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Beau, so incredibly sweet and easy to handle. All he wants to do is just lie at your feet and hang with you. Other dogs are okay, but YOU are the focus. Someone thought he would make him look tough by doing a hacket job on his ears, but nothing could be further from the truth. This dog is a marshmallow. On the small side at about 50 lbs, he is about 6 years old and would dearly love a home of his own...in foster care now, he is thriving...loves a sun bath on the deck, then happy to come in and nap. One thing: he loves to eat grass! Apply to adopt BEAU online at www.thepolishedpitbull.com.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. ELIA is a dog who has been bred more times than I am sure she cared to be bred. She adores every person she meetsl and wants nothing more than to be at your side forever. She was a favorite of the shelter staff at CCSPCA in Vineland...found as a street stray with cuts all over her, she was pregnant to boot. Now all of her puppies have been adopted, it's Elia's turn. Since she loves nothing more than lying on the sofa, or on the deck in the sun, she would be a perfect pet for a retired couple who have a fenced yard and want to give this Mommy dog the love and care she has only now started to receive in her life....she is so deserving...will you be the one(s)? I would absolutely trust her with your grandkids too. Apply to adopt ELIA online at www.thepolishedpitbull.com.
