Bullmasador Dog For Adoption in MONTGOMERY, IN
This is a one year old pup from our first litter who’s owners contacted us when they were moving and couldn’t take him. We now have him and absolutely love him. He weighs around 100 pounds and is all black. He can sit, stay, shake, fetch and is crate trained. Unfortunately, He has spent a lot of his life in a crate and has never been around other dogs. He is aggressive with our 3 large dogs and we are recommending he go to a home with no other pets or small children. He is not fixed and likes to jump. We are willing to pay to have him neutered and are currently working with him to stop the jumping. He responds well to treats and is a super sweet dog. He’s fairly laid back and really just wants a friend. He’s spent a lot of his life alone and we only want the best for him. We usually sell our pups for $500-$800 but really just want to see this guy go to a great home. I’ve spent several days with him and have loved every second. I think with some work and training he could be ok with another dog as long as that dog was submissive. Please feel free to ask any questions and I will be honest in my answers. Thanks :)
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
