Posted Breed: Neapolitan Mastiff (short coat). In order to be considered for adoption we must first have an application on file. Once this is complete we will be in contact with you regarding potential meeting and adopting. If its a dog with lots of interest it can take a few days to review applications. You can expedite this process by ensuring application is answered fully and accurately, and you have given permission for your vet to release information to us. We thank you for your patience and understanding. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Hoyt is a very large boy who is in need of a special home. Please note, we have set specific criteria for him to ensure a positive placement, not to be strict. He is a great boy who doesn't know his own strength and has some fear & anxiety issues that are very workable but someone MUST commit to his training in order to adopt him. Hoyt is looking for a home with no kids under 6yrs old. Hoyt has done well with many dogs in a play setting but does get very jealous at home and would be best if he was an only dog. He has not hurt another dog or person, but he has growled on occasion at dogs when they are in his space. He has been fine around the cat. He is also in need of a home that will take him to training to continue learning skills and confidence and better ways to manage fear. He loves to use his crate as his safe place. He tends to be more fearful out in public and when guests come over so this cannot happen without additional training to know it is ok for him. He would do best in a home where they agree to keep him on Prozac not have him left home alone more than 5hr stretches. Hoyts adoption fee is $200 which includes his neuter, rabies, vaccinations, heartworm test (neg) and microchip. Adoption Procedures: We only consider your home for adoption after we receive an application. Once this is complete we then move on in the process to adopting your new best friend. Once we receive an application we review it to see if the particular dog(s) might be a good fit for your home/lifestyle and that you meet the required needs of the dog. Once this is done we proceed to check veterinary references. This is to ensure that pets you have or have had in the past were cared for, altered, and up to date with necessary medical care. Once you have been through this initial screening we then set up a home visit to ensure that the home is a safe home with little concern about their personality matching yours. We also want to ensure that the home is set up for the same energy levels or medical needs they may or may not have (dog that can't climb stairs, or not enough room to walk, etc.) These steps are important to ensuring that we are finding the proper home for the dog to be FURever! A few requirements of adoption are: *We currently do not adopt out of state unless its a dog that has limited options and has been waiting for an extended period of time in our rescue. In most cases of puppies we have so many applications it makes little sense to transport them out of state when there is plenty of homes in the area that are willing to adopt them. So we have limited our out of state options to those who have less applicants coming in. *Your current pets MUST be spayed/neutered. This would negate our entire mission statement if we did not ensure the safety of all of our dogs and ensure that we are helping to END unnecessary euthanasia due to over breeding/overpopulation. We have made exceptions for severe medical conditions or age that would be too risky. *We do not adopt to homes with smoking indoors due to health concerns for the pets. *Some of our adoptions may require you to be a homeowner, have a fully fenced yard (not invisible fencing) or are required to attend an obedience training class. This is due to the high rate of returns in dogs that are not properly exercised or trained and make it difficult to re-home. Each dog will be properly labeled on the website as to what their needs/requirements may be based on the individual dog. We have been doing this a long time, we hope you understand that we consider the needs of the dogs first and foremost, their best interests are priority #1. Frequently Asked Questions: 1. I applied to adopt a dog but we have an invisible fence not a solid fencing, can we still adopt? -unfortunately invisible fencing is not full proof fencing and does not protect your own dogs from other loose dogs entering your property. Many dogs get out of invisible fencing and then are too afraid to return back to the yard, and there are just too many concerns with the bully breed to put them at risk. Click on article below for more information. Why Invisible Fencing isn't a good solution 2. Do you negotiate on your adoption fees? If I want to take the dog to my own vet for spay/neuter can I get a discount on adoption fees? -Unfortunately 80% or more of our dogs cost hundreds more than we actually adopt them out for. When a dog has a major medical concern the rescue pays out of our adoption funds to get the dog the necessary help it needs to get it to an "adoptable" status. We rely heavily on donations and adoption fees to be able to care for these dogs who otherwise would have died, so we are insistant on our fees staying the same in order to continue rescuing future dogs. Without the set fee we are unable to rescue, and cannot afford basic care on dogs. Please understand that very few dogs (even ones that are free to us) are not free....our vets may provide a SMALL discount, but it still cost on average $300-400 to get a dog fully vetted. Our adoption fees are always under this, so as you see it is a loss. If you choose to use your own vet to spay/neuter, we allow that within 30 days of adoption; however we are unable to provide adoption fee discounts due to the reasons stated above. 3. Can I meet the dog before the home visit? Why Can't I take the dog home the day I meet them/fill out an application? -if you wish to meet a dog before the home visit, our suggestion is to attend an adoption event if they are going to be in attendance. The rescue has had numerous situations where people that are not serious about adoption have requested visits to see the dog and then never fill out applications, or set up home visits. We have made the decision that if you take a few moments of your time to do those steps first, it shows your commitment to the dog and we then will proceed to meeting the dogs. This cuts back on many wasted hours for our volunteers who drive all over free of charge to do these meets/home visits. The rescue must be very careful about our adoption process. Unfortunately we do see dog abusers apply, people that have no funding to care for a dog, hoarders, etc. and it is the rescues sole responsibility to ensure the safety of our dogs. We want to be sure that our dogs are going to a home that they will always be provided for and will not be returned. Because of this, we do not allow the dogs to go home upon first meet at an adoption event. We must proceed with vet references and home visits first. 4. Can we adopt more than 1 puppy from a litter? -No, here is an article explaining our position clearly : LITTERMATE SYNDROME 5. Why does it matter what type of training we use and who we take our dog to train with? -Because Training is an unregulated field, sadly many individuals who have had no formal training or keep up on updated standards and practices, this could be potentially dangerous to our dogs. Using inhumane methods such as choke chains, shock collars, prong collars, and "alpha" or "dominance" based theories are outdated, debunked methodologies that can cause physical and psychological damage to our dogs. Although you have committed to caring for your dog, if you have caused irreparable damage by using these tools and then return the dog we are responsible for this and are not willing to see this done to our dogs. Instead we are able to provide you with a list of excellent recommended trainers who not only are humane and kind, they are always continuing their education to be the best at what they do. Professionals like this are sometimes the best for even the easiest of puppies in order to create a success story for you and your family.

More About Neapolitan Mastiff Breed
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.

She is a doll who has been brushing up on her obedience and manners now that her puppies have left the nest. This beauty even comes with a freedom harness, martingale collar, and double clip leash (valued at over $60) to help you transition to a new dog without the additional cost. She would do best in a home with no young children or small loose pets (cats, rabbits, etc.). She has been around some dogs but can be selective depending on the other dogs personality.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Approximately 2 year old beagle who is looking for a foster or forever home. Beagle noses guide them through life, and they’re never happier than when following an interesting scent. The Beagle originally was bred as a scenthound to track small game, mostly rabbits and hare. For this reason, Cubbie would do best in a home with a fully fenced yard (sorry no invisible fencing or tie outs for this boy). He also can be vocal at the window or outside when people or animals pass by similar to many hound breeds. He would be best suited for a home life, rather than an apartment. Cubbie enjoys walks with his fosters and volunteers. He is very treat motivated so training should be a fun experience for his new owner and him. He came to us very shy just a few weeks ago but is slowly coming out of his shell and having fun. He is scheduled to be neutered 11/22/16 and is up to date on vaccinations.

Why Can't I take the dog home the day I meet them/fill out an application? -if you wish to meet a dog before the home visit, our suggestion is to attend an adoption event if they are going to be in attendance. The rescue has had numerous situations where people that are not serious about adoption have requested visits to see the dog and then never fill out applications, or set up home visits. We have made the decision that if you take a few moments of your time to do those steps first, it shows your commitment to the dog and we then will proceed to meeting the dogs. This cuts back on many wasted hours for our volunteers who drive all over free of charge to do these meets/home visits. The rescue must be very careful about our adoption process. Unfortunately we do see dog abusers apply, people that have no funding to care for a dog, hoarders, etc. and it is the rescues sole responsibility to ensure the safety of our dogs. We want to be sure that our dogs are going to a home that they will always be provided for and will not be returned. Because of this, we do not allow the dogs to go home upon first meet at an adoption event. We must proceed with vet references and home visits first. 4. Can we adopt more than 1 puppy from a litter? -No, here is an article explaining our position clearly : LITTERMATE SYNDROME 5. Why does it matter what type of training we use and who we take our dog to train with? -Because Training is an unregulated field, sadly many individuals who have had no formal training or keep up on updated standards and practices, this could be potentially dangerous to our dogs. Using inhumane methods such as choke chains, shock collars, prong collars, and "alpha" or "dominance" based theories are outdated, debunked methodologies that can cause physical and psychological damage to our dogs. Although you have committed to caring for your dog, if you have caused irreparable damage by using these tools and then return the dog we are responsible for this and are not willing to see this done to our dogs. Instead we are able to provide you with a list of excellent recommended trainers who not only are humane and kind, they are always continuing their education to be the best at what they do. Professionals like this are sometimes the best for even the easiest of puppies in order to create a success story for you and your family.

      rescue
      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Perry, NY
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). In order to be considered for adoption we must first have an application on file. Once this is complete we will be in contact with you regarding potential meeting and adopting. If its a dog with lots of interest it can take a few days to review applications. You can expedite this process by ensuring application is answered fully and accurately, and you have given permission for your vet to release information to us. We thank you for your patience and understanding. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Dallas was surrendered to a shelter by his owners because he was in need of medical care that they were not able to provide him. Our rescue immediately stepped in to rush him to emergency for having seizures. While its unclear if the seizures are as a result of epilepsy or if something else caused them and they are temporary, we do have to take a bit more time to monitor him, get a clean bill of health so we can have him neutered. 10/19/16: he will have a follow up appointment in the next 2 weeks to do blood work and find out what his next steps are. He will then be put up for adoption at a later point. His adoption fee will be $325 and training will be required with a professional who focuses on positive reinforcement. He is microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations. Adoption Procedures: We only consider your home for adoption after we receive an application. Once this is complete we then move on in the process to adopting your new best friend. Once we receive an application we review it to see if the particular dog(s) might be a good fit for your home/lifestyle and that you meet the required needs of the dog. Once this is done we proceed to check veterinary references. This is to ensure that pets you have or have had in the past were cared for, altered, and up to date with necessary medical care. Once you have been through this initial screening we then set up a home visit to ensure that the home is a safe home with little concern about their personality matching yours. We also want to ensure that the home is set up for the same energy levels or medical needs they may or may not have (dog that can't climb stairs, or not enough room to walk, etc.) These steps are important to ensuring that we are finding the proper home for the dog to be FURever! A few requirements of adoption are: *We currently do not adopt out of state unless its a dog that has limited options and has been waiting for an extended period of time in our rescue. In most cases of puppies we have so many applications it makes little sense to transport them out of state when there is plenty of homes in the area that are willing to adopt them. So we have limited our out of state options to those who have less applicants coming in. *Your current pets MUST be spayed/neutered. This would negate our entire mission statement if we did not ensure the safety of all of our dogs and ensure that we are helping to END unnecessary euthanasia due to over breeding/overpopulation. We have made exceptions for severe medical conditions or age that would be too risky. *We do not adopt to homes with smoking indoors due to health concerns for the pets. *Some of our adoptions may require you to be a homeowner, have a fully fenced yard (not invisible fencing) or are required to attend an obedience training class. This is due to the high rate of returns in dogs that are not properly exercised or trained and make it difficult to re-home. Each dog will be properly labeled on the website as to what their needs/requirements may be based on the individual dog. We have been doing this a long time, we hope you understand that we consider the needs of the dogs first and foremost, their best interests are priority #1. Frequently Asked Questions: 1. I applied to adopt a dog but we have an invisible fence not a solid fencing, can we still adopt? -unfortunately invisible fencing is not full proof fencing and does not protect your own dogs from other loose dogs entering your property. Many dogs get out of invisible fencing and then are too afraid to return back to the yard, and there are just too many concerns with the bully breed to put them at risk. Click on article below for more information. Why Invisible Fencing isn't a good solution 2. Do you negotiate on your adoption fees? If I want to take the dog to my own vet for spay/neuter can I get a discount on adoption fees? -Unfortunately 80% or more of our dogs cost hundreds more than we actually adopt them out for. When a dog has a major medical concern the rescue pays out of our adoption funds to get the dog the necessary help it needs to get it to an "adoptable" status. We rely heavily on donations and adoption fees to be able to care for these dogs who otherwise would have died, so we are insistant on our fees staying the same in order to continue rescuing future dogs. Without the set fee we are unable to rescue, and cannot afford basic care on dogs. Please understand that very few dogs (even ones that are free to us) are not free....our vets may provide a SMALL discount, but it still cost on average $300-400 to get a dog fully vetted. Our adoption fees are always under this, so as you see it is a loss. If you choose to use your own vet to spay/neuter, we allow that within 30 days of adoption; however we are unable to provide adoption fee discounts due to the reasons stated above. 3.

I had an old leg injury that looks painful, but it isn't and it doesn't really slow me down much. I was rescued from the local animal control with no history on me or what happened...I just want to say I am over it and want to move forward and enjoy my life with a family who wont judge me based on my appearance. I am a very sweet dog who is currently being fostered with small children and dogs of all sizes, cats, and even small reptiles. Rocky has been examined by multiple veterinarians who concur that surgery is not necessary and that his leg causes him no pain. Activities I enjoy are running and playing with toys and my family. People would describe me as: Curious, Playful, Social butterfly, Active, Lap Loving.

Bela is now fully recovered from any issues that prevented her from adoption and is now seeking her forever home. She would do best in a home with no other dogs because she was never socialized by her previous owners. She is a very loyal dog, more of a laid back dog who just loves to snuggle and be around you. She wouldn't be considered high energy which is great. She is crate trained. Her biggest fault is that she is hard to photograph so you don't get to see the pretty brindle markings in her coat. She really is a lovely girl who just needs a chance to live with a committed family. She has had a blood panel and heartworm/lyme testing done and all came back with no abnormalities or concerns. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $100 3-16-11: This wonderful, sweet puppy is with a litter of 5 gorgeous females that were turned in to GTTD rescue from a local WNY family that had an unplanned litter.

Why does it matter what type of training we use and who we take our dog to train with? -Because Training is an unregulated field, sadly many individuals who have had no formal training or keep up on updated standards and practices, this could be potentially dangerous to our dogs. Using inhumane methods such as choke chains, shock collars, prong collars, and "alpha" or "dominance" based theories are outdated, debunked methodologies that can cause physical and psychological damage to our dogs. Although you have committed to caring for your dog, if you have caused irreparable damage by using these tools and then return the dog we are responsible for this and are not willing to see this done to our dogs. Instead we are able to provide you with a list of excellent recommended trainers who not only are humane and kind, they are always continuing their education to be the best at what they do.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Perry, NY
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). In order to be considered for adoption we must first have an application on file. Once this is complete we will be in contact with you regarding potential meeting and adopting. If its a dog with lots of interest it can take a few days to review applications. You can expedite this process by ensuring application is answered fully and accurately, and you have given permission for your vet to release information to us. We thank you for your patience and understanding. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Lola is a very sweet and playful girl. She loves squeaky toys! She has been spayed and gained her weight back from having a litter of puppies. She has done ok with some dogs, but requires a slow introduction and not all dogs may fit her criteria of being her best friend. She may do best with a laid back male that isn't larger than her. She is potty trained, crate trained and microchipped. Lola's adoption fee is $200 but we will reimburse $50 if you take her to training within 60 days of adoption. Adoption Procedures: We only consider your home for adoption after we receive an application. Once this is complete we then move on in the process to adopting your new best friend. Once we receive an application we review it to see if the particular dog(s) might be a good fit for your home/lifestyle and that you meet the required needs of the dog. Once this is done we proceed to check veterinary references. This is to ensure that pets you have or have had in the past were cared for, altered, and up to date with necessary medical care. Once you have been through this initial screening we then set up a home visit to ensure that the home is a safe home with little concern about their personality matching yours. We also want to ensure that the home is set up for the same energy levels or medical needs they may or may not have (dog that can't climb stairs, or not enough room to walk, etc.) These steps are important to ensuring that we are finding the proper home for the dog to be FURever! A few requirements of adoption are: *We currently do not adopt out of state unless its a dog that has limited options and has been waiting for an extended period of time in our rescue. In most cases of puppies we have so many applications it makes little sense to transport them out of state when there is plenty of homes in the area that are willing to adopt them. So we have limited our out of state options to those who have less applicants coming in. *Your current pets MUST be spayed/neutered. This would negate our entire mission statement if we did not ensure the safety of all of our dogs and ensure that we are helping to END unnecessary euthanasia due to over breeding/overpopulation. We have made exceptions for severe medical conditions or age that would be too risky. *We do not adopt to homes with smoking indoors due to health concerns for the pets. *Some of our adoptions may require you to be a homeowner, have a fully fenced yard (not invisible fencing) or are required to attend an obedience training class. This is due to the high rate of returns in dogs that are not properly exercised or trained and make it difficult to re-home. Each dog will be properly labeled on the website as to what their needs/requirements may be based on the individual dog. We have been doing this a long time, we hope you understand that we consider the needs of the dogs first and foremost, their best interests are priority #1. Frequently Asked Questions: 1. I applied to adopt a dog but we have an invisible fence not a solid fencing, can we still adopt? -unfortunately invisible fencing is not full proof fencing and does not protect your own dogs from other loose dogs entering your property. Many dogs get out of invisible fencing and then are too afraid to return back to the yard, and there are just too many concerns with the bully breed to put them at risk. Click on article below for more information. Why Invisible Fencing isn't a good solution 2. Do you negotiate on your adoption fees? If I want to take the dog to my own vet for spay/neuter can I get a discount on adoption fees? -Unfortunately 80% or more of our dogs cost hundreds more than we actually adopt them out for. When a dog has a major medical concern the rescue pays out of our adoption funds to get the dog the necessary help it needs to get it to an "adoptable" status. We rely heavily on donations and adoption fees to be able to care for these dogs who otherwise would have died, so we are insistant on our fees staying the same in order to continue rescuing future dogs. Without the set fee we are unable to rescue, and cannot afford basic care on dogs. Please understand that very few dogs (even ones that are free to us) are not free....our vets may provide a SMALL discount, but it still cost on average $300-400 to get a dog fully vetted. Our adoption fees are always under this, so as you see it is a loss. If you choose to use your own vet to spay/neuter, we allow that within 30 days of adoption; however we are unable to provide adoption fee discounts due to the reasons stated above. 3. Can I meet the dog before the home visit? Why Can't I take the dog home the day I meet them/fill out an application? -if you wish to meet a dog before the home visit, our suggestion is to attend an adoption event if they are going to be in attendance. The rescue has had numerous situations where people that are not serious about adoption have requested visits to see the dog and then never fill out applications, or set up home visits. We have made the decision that if you take a few moments of your time to do those steps first, it shows your commitment to the dog and we then will proceed to meeting the dogs. This cuts back on many wasted hours for our volunteers who drive all over free of charge to do these meets/home visits. The rescue must be very careful about our adoption process. Unfortunately we do see dog abusers apply, people that have no funding to care for a dog, hoarders, etc. and it is the rescues sole responsibility to ensure the safety of our dogs. We want to be sure that our dogs are going to a home that they will always be provided for and will not be returned. Because of this, we do not allow the dogs to go home upon first meet at an adoption event. We must proceed with vet references and home visits first. 4. Can we adopt more than 1 puppy from a litter? -No, here is an article explaining our position clearly : LITTERMATE SYNDROME 5.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org COURTESY POST: HELP ME FIND KATIE'S FOREVER HOME! She is 2 yrs old, spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She knows all her basic obedience and then some. She walks great on a leash. She's a sweet, attention-loving girl. I met Katie this past Spring and worked on training with her for months. She is so smart and made amazing progress. She has been in a foster home but her time there is almost up, and we really need to find her a forever home. Her owner has been financially supporting her and will do so until she finds her forever home. I will offer lifetime training for her, but she needs a stable environment to work effectively with her. She needs a home!! She is such a great dog I really would keep her myself, but she is mildly reactive to other dogs, and I have 2 of my own. I don't have the best home situation for her, and she deserves the best. Her biggest challenges are jumping (for attention) and chewing (she needs enough physical exercise and mental stimulation). I can help with both of these! She is located near Buffalo NY. Anyone interested should contact me Vicki Eberle, trainer, directly at 716-523-2344. You may also email me at viceberle928@gmail.com. Please share this and help me find Katie her forever home! Thank you!Adoption Procedures: We only consider your home for adoption after we receive an application.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Name: Bugsy DOB: 07/16/2011 Adoption Fee: $50 I am a sweet boy who loves attention and is eager to please! I love to run and play, but I am also a lap loving snuggler who would watch TV with you for hours. I am not a big barker or noise maker...I am rather quiet and just want your attention and love whenever you can give it to me :) I currently eat 2x a day, I am house trained and am also crate/kennel trained. As sweet as I am with humans, I am in need of a home with no other dogs because I am a resource guarder. What is that? It means that because of my past and lack of training early on in my development, I tend to value all of my resources so much that I guard them and do not want others to have them. If another dog were to challenge me on that, I would disagree and fight over it, so I just prefer not to share my treasured humans, food, and toys. Other stuff my foster parents think is important for you to know: I like to make my bed like a child makes forts. I am goofy about my nesting and my foster parents can't stop laughing when I do it. My adoption fee is $50 which covers all of my medical care including neuter, microchip, rabies, vaccinations, and de-wormers. Bugsy's will require a fenced yard as well as obedience training completed after adoption. This will help him with her manners and bonding with his new family to ensure he stays a lifelong pet! The bonus part of this is GTTD will refund the $50 adoption fee if you complete training with a positive reinforcement trainer (no aversive/correction based training).
