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-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Hi there! My Name is Rusty because of my beautiful rust red coat and gorgeous hazel eyes. I LOVE humans of all shapes and sizes, and my favorite thing is to put my head in your lap or lay next to you on the couch. I help my foster mom clean, work in the backyard, and make dinner. I love interacting with my human friends… and I even like ear scratches from the mailman! I also love tug-o-war and squeaky toys. I’m crate trained, potty trained, and my foster mom has taught me to sleep on my dog bed. She’s also teaching me to heel, sit, stay, and wait for her commands before doing my favorite things. I learned shake in one week and my foster mom is convinced I can learn anything! I love playing with other dogs, but I’m also good at leaving my older foster brother alone. My ideal family would be someone who likes some type of daily activity- either dog park, daily walks, or another dog that also likes to play! On days I don’t get as much activity, I’m still not hyper in the house as long as I have my toys to keep me busy. I greet my foster mom with the cutest happy howl when she gets home. If you’d like to make my happy howl your own and want a lovable, snuggable, playful dog - that’s me!

      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 250.00. Say hello to Tantor! This little guy was found on the streets, but is learning the ropes of puppyhood in a foster home and hoping his forever home is just around the corner. For now, he's enjoying cuddling with his foster mom, playing with anything in his path, and wiggling his bottom. Tantor is crate training, does well with older kids, and can be particular about his doggie friends. He would do best with other dogs who have a similar energy level. He loves to sit on laps and snuggle with people when he's not playing. His foster mom says his activity level is about a medium, and likens his silly, stocky physique to that of an elephant! Tantor's ideal home is one where he can be the sole attention-getter. He'd like an active family to keep him busy, but also to let him cuddle during down time. Do you think you could handle this little guy? All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Enzo! This sweet boy is a loving and loyal Chihuahua mix, who was rescued from a local shelter after coming in as a stray. Although it’s clear that he had a ruff past and wasn’t getting the love he deserved, he is the most affectionate and eager-to-please pup! Enzo has come a long way in his foster home. When he was first rescued he was very timid and nervous, but craved human compassion. Now he is more outgoing and social…and even MORE loving! He will shower you with kisses and friendly pats with his paws, as he’s snuggled up on your lap. He interacts well with strangers too, including children. Enzo is friendly with other dogs, and has even stayed in homes with other dogs when his foster mom is out of town. He is also cat friendly! He currently lives with 2 cats that he gets along with well, and who he has never chased or bothered. Enzo is well-behaved on leash, and is completely housebroken. He will hang out in a crate, but his foster mom doesn’t crate him since he’s so well-mannered and doesn't potty inside. He has a very laid back and chill demeanor, and just relaxes and snoozes the day away awaiting his human’s arrival! You couldn’t ask for a more devoted companion, and Enzo is very deserving of a loving furever home. What are you waiting for? Apply and meet Enzo today!
