Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Dora is a 2 year old Staffordshire Terrier mix, a lot of times referred to as a "pocket pitt" because of her smaller size. We have had her since July of 2015. She was found by a couple, abandoned under a truck. It appeared she had recently had a litter of puppies that were not with her when she was found. The couple kept her 5 days while looking for help for her. During that time they were able to see that she knows basic commands, rides relaxed and freely in the car and is house trained. She is also friendly with children. She is the biggest cuddle bug and kisser we have ever met, she loves attention. She is a champion tug of war player and will pick toys out of our basket each time she goes by and take them back to her room to play with. Just look at her beautiful golden-brown eyes, you can tell she has a great personality and is full of love for the right family. Please come by and be that family she has never had before.

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.

    • Mutt Dog For Adoption in Manchester, MO, USA

      Tater

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Nicole (countryacresrescue@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Tater was rescued in Davisville, MO along with his brother Scooter. Both had lived their entire lives on a chain where they could barely reach each other to snuggle. The previous "owner" had been feeding and watering them (minimally), until her husband died and she left them behind in a move. That's where we stepped in. We coerced them off their chains with their first taste of hotdog and quickly gained their trust and love. They came to us in very bad shape (low weight, severe skin issues, broken teeth, etc), but through it all their spirits were never broken. They wag their tails in utter happiness like no other. So grateful to have been saved. Tater (and Scooter) have a lot of love to give. Please give them the home they have never had...

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Buddy was surrendered to us because his prior owner became somewhat disabled and had to use a cane and could no longer keep up with such a young and playful pup. He's kind of a one-person dog, but is a sweetheart and lovable. Like so many young dogs, he loves attention and to play games and go on walks :)
