Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Alexi, the sweetest Pit Bull you will ever meet! I am loving, friendly and enjoy the company of other dogs who are easygoing like me. Do you know what I love even more than my furry friends? Humans! I adore them and love all the affection I can get… and I have no problem giving it back! I like treats like cheese and chicken and I love going on car rides with my people. I enjoy a good nap but I like being outside too. In fact, when the weather is nice, you might find me outdoors sunbathing! One of my favorite things to do is go to doggy daycare. I’m really popular there, if I do say so myself. I’ve already made lots of friends there! While I’m a superstar at daycare, I really shine at home too. I am crate trained (I love it in there!), housebroken and I'm learning to walk well on a leash. My foster parents were told I am seven years old but they think I may be between 5 and 7. I may be older but I still have a lot of life and, more importantly, a lot of love to give. I am a sweet, special dog who would love nothing more than to find a forever home for my golden years! I'm famous! I was featured on CW33's Ruff Life.

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 Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Meet Skip! He’s a fantastic dog that loves others dogs and people. Skip was surrendered to Dallas Animal Services in early February and spent nearly two months before he found a foster. His foster parents aren’t quite sure why, because he’s such a friendly and affectionate dog and clearly loves being part of a family. And he’s got the doggie eyes down pat! He’s great with his four foster siblings and made himself just another fur kid within a day. He’s learned all about things like “chewies” (the nightly dental chew after dinner), and walks around the neighborhood. Skip is great on a leash and doesn’t constantly pull. Although he does like squirrels, but that’s just all part of being a dog, right? Skip seems to really enjoy playing with smaller dogs. He stayed with a two-year old Jack Russell Terrier for nearly a week and loved playing with him (and didn't even get upset when the little dog barked right in his face). Skip also seems to be interested in and gentle with children. He's very patient and doesn't mind playing dress up!​ He’s mastered the art of rearranging loose pillows on the couch, which has earned him the nickname of “Couch Monster”. And he’s good in his crate, especially when a cow hoof stuffed with peanut butter is involved ;). He beds down in his blankets and pillows and hasn’t torn anything up while in his crate. He’s also great about baths AND getting his nails trimmed! Skip would do well in a home with other dogs, or would be a great solo dog provided his new family/person could provide him with enough attention. He’s laid back but also active, silly, and loves getting out and about. Skip should not be in a home with cats, however. He’s just a little too interested (maybe he thinks they’re squirrels, or maybe he’s just never been around them). Does Skip sound like the perfect pup for you?

      Posted Breed: Entlebucher / Mountain Dog / Mixed. Say hello to Edgrrr! This three-year-old mountain dog has stolen the heart of his foster mom with his precious, expressive face and snuggly personality. And as much as he loves his foster home, he just knows his forever family is out there somewhere. Edgrrr is great on a leash AND in the crate. He's a very observant fella, so he likes taking in the sights with his people, whether it be on an outdoor patio for brunch or at the park on the weekends. When he gets a burst of energy, he will run around for a few minutes and then flop down on the couch in exhaustion. What a silly guy! Edgrrr's ideal home is a quiet one where his family will lavish attention and love on him. He loves to snuggle with his humans on the couch and gives great hugs! He would prefer to be the only dog, as he does not like other dogs in his face, but he could accept a friendly female companion. He also needs a family who can build his confidence as he can get nervous if he's unsure about someone or something. Could that family be yours?

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Mickey! This four-year-old Boxer/Pibble mix is a big ball of love, and he's patiently waiting for the perfect family to scoop him up and love on him forever. But while he waits, he's learning how to be the perfect pup in a loving foster home! Mickey's foster mom says she's never seen such a loving dog, nor one that is so eager to please his family and show them what a good boy he is. He is already crate-trained, and has not had one accident in his foster home. He also loves his vast array of toys - ropes, squeaker toys, you name it. He loves them all! Mickey is also incredibly affectionate. He likes to "hold hands" with his foster mom by leaving his paw on her leg until she holds his paw in return. Mickey's ideal home is one where he's the only dog. He loves kids! Most importantly, his forever family needs to appreciate how much he loves them and cherishes them. Think you could be the family Mickey's been searching for? Mickey is famous!

With snow white wire fur, and the cutest semi-erect ears one will probably ever see, this sweetheart is looking for her happily furever after. Roo was actually brought into the city shelter as a puppy, and was diagnosed with parvo, a very deadly virus soon after. She struggled and finally beat it... ROO IS A PARVO SURVIVOR! A bit of a princess, Roo would do best in a quiet, stable home. She can be dog selective, so she would do best in a single-dog home where she can soak up all of your affection, or in a home with male dogs around her size or larger - she loves to play and run with the big boys! She prefers a home with no small children or cats. She really enjoys the outdoors, and has proven to be an excellent mouser (who needs a cat when you've got Roo on the task?). Roo knows some basic commands, is crate- and house-trained; she is a great girl! While some might say she's picky, we say she's just got high standards!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Dove is an affectionate, laid back dog. She is very people oriented and will follow you wherever you go. She enjoys being petted and talked to, and will lean into you with her head or body, whenever the opportunity presents itself. For a big dog, she gives quite delicate kisses. She is a pleasure to walk on a leash, as her walking style is slow and leisurely. She is fairly low energy and doesn’t require a great deal of exercise. Her favorite past time is napping in a sunny spot in the backyard. Dove enjoys wrestling with other big dogs and adores playing with (and sharing) her squeaky toys. She would probably do best in a home without cats or tiny dogs, but another medium-large dog companion would be ok! Does this sweet pup sound like the one for you?

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi, I'm Baku! A 5 year old pitbull mix who has overcome a lot in my life, and am enjoying the second chance I've been given! I like to lie around and relax, preferably with a human or a stick or tough toy to chew on. I enjoy walks but mostly to sniff, pee on things, and to get a breath of fresh air. Sun bathing is a favorite past time in-between naps and eating. Oh, eating! I'm a great snacker and enjoy cantaloupe, raw almonds, steamed asparagus, frozen bananas, apple slices, and baby carrots. I can moonlight as an oven timer, nearly hitting the ready mark every time. I'm learning to dog and enjoy playing fetch although I am not quite sure about waiting for it to be thrown. I know how to sit, come, and go to bed. I understand the word “no” but do sometimes question it if you're a softy. I am house trained and have never had an indoor accident and I sleep through the night, even putting myself to bed most nights. I'm gentle and sweet and act out anything I don't want to do by either running away or deploying dead weight. I love all adult humans, even the mail man and the guys that mow my yard. I may look the part, but I'm no guard dog. The more the merrier, I say! I'd really like to be an only pup as I'm kind of an attention hog and a little fearful of other dog's intentions. I've been through a lot but have moved past the wounds, surgery, heart worms, mange, and torn ears. Through it all, I have blossomed into a confident, happy, calm and sometimes silly boy that just enjoys the simple things in life. And I'm quite handsome with a touch of character if I don't say so myself! I can't wait to meet you! Apply for me today!

She was seized with dozens of other dogs from a hoarding cruelty case back in January. Despite the fact that Darcey’s past may not have been picture perfect, she is the sweetest, most patient pup. She is not overly affectionate, but she has become her foster mom’s shadow and loves to be in the same room her foster mom is in. She’s calm and content, and loves getting her head and ears rubbed—she’ll place her chin on your knee or lick our foot if she’s not ready for you to be done petting her. She’s learning more everyday what it means to be a pet in a loving home! Darcey is house broken and does great on a leash! She even follows at your heal when she goes on walks. She is crate trained as well, and happily hangs out in her crate during the day while her foster mom is at work. She is working on other basic commands, and is still learning what “playtime” means – but she is coming out of her shell and wagging her tail, especially when she hears her foster brother’s squeaky toy! She plays well with other dogs as well, and is patient with pesky ones! And what about cats? Well Darcey does very well with the kitties as well. She doesn't bother them, and isn't phased by a little hissing. She has even mingled with a guinea pig! Darcey is still a little timid due to her past, and will need to be in a home that is willing to be patient until they can earn her trust. She may not be the most trusting of humans, but she is a kind and gentle soul with a wonderful demeanor. And despite her lack of socialization in the past, she is very smart and attentive and does not act out. This sweet girl deserves a happy ever after – do you want to be the one to make that happen for her?
