Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Introducing the absolutely adorable Rory!! This sweet bat-eared girl is a 1-2 year old, approx. 40lb terrier mix. Enough about the minor details -- let's talk about why you should adopt Rory! She is totally house-trained. She's great on the leash and will sit nicely next to you in case you're the type who likes to stop and chat with people on walks. She has the best ears ever and they can probably pick up radio signals from miles away. She knows "sit" and takes treats very nicely. She's good with other dogs! She's been on a few play dates and enjoys the company of her fellow canines. She is okay with kitties; chickens too! She is absolutely beautiful and affectionate and such a love Some dogs you meet just really make an impact on your heart -- Rory is one of them. She's a happy, entertaining, loving girl! Rory was rescued from a high kill shelter. There is an application process. After you fill out the application, which you can do ONLINE, we will bring Rory to meet you, if we feel this is a good match for you and Rory. All of our dogs are up-to-date on shots and have been neutered/spayed. All adoptions start as two week trial 'sleepovers'. Rory's adoption fee is $150.

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.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 75.00. 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. We will be in touch with you once your application has been approved.

      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. We will be in touch with you once your application has been approved.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Sweet Donte came to us with ear, skin and urinary tract infections; clearly he had not been well-cared for. With a great diet and the right medications, DONTE is ready for the right adopter to come along and snatch him up. He is a little cross eyed, but that add to his charm. He's ready to play bow at the world! He loves treats, VERY housebroken, and is a pro at “sit” and “down.” He is reported to be well behaved when left alone, relaxed and gentle around children. He loves human company and likes to be petted. He enjoys the 'bouncy' play with our female dog Peanut...and in general just likes hanging out with her. Apply to adopt DONTE online at www.thepolishedpitbull.com. We will be in touch with you once your application has been approved.
