More About Rat-Cha 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.

Reva is in need of a home wit h a fenced in yard with lots of room to run around, and is currently most comfortable in an outside kennel. Reva would do great as an only pet but can become familiarized with other dogs with some work. She does not care for cats or farm animals. Reva came to me and we believe she was highly dog aggressive. Now that Reva has become familiar with her surroundings, we have noticed that she can do well with other dogs!! And that she has a touch of anxiety. This is something we are working on! She just has to be introduced slowly. She's been doing so well!! We will be doing socialization therapy while and she will also be attending training with Larry Benoit! Please share in hope to find Reva the perfect home for the holidays!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). www.thepitstoprescue.com "Your final stop for your furever friend!" Meet Miss Fanci Pants! Fanci was surrendered to a kill shelter at about 5 months old. Since this time, she has bounced around from shelter, to foster home, to boarding, now back to a shelter. She was pulled from the kill shelter at 5 months, and lived in a foster home for a few months. When her foster could no longer keep her, she moved to boarding. The rescue who pulled her was foster based, and there were no fosters available at the time. With so much energy and love for playing in the yard, living in boarding really made her become depressed. She lost weight and was not happy. A local trainer spent a LOT of time with Fanci while she was here, and Fanci completed basic obedience training, and some! About a year after her rescue, a space became available at a low kill shelter, and Fanci got to move! She's still here. She is almost 2 years old, heartworm negative, obedience trained, loves kids and cats. Oh, and Fanci LOVES, LOVES her toy balls! She isn't too interested in playing with other dogs because she is obsessed with playing ball and giving her humans so much attention. She LOVES going for car rides, trips to the pet store, or just playing in the yard for HOURS. And swimming and four wheeling on the creek? Yes please!! She's a very observant little girl, who listens and is keen on everything around her. She was even enrolled in a training program for a few months to become an officer assisting K-9! This is one smart cookie! We aren't quite positive what breeds make up this beautiful girl, but we know she's one of a kind. She's just wondering why she hasn't found her home yet. We'd love to see her get a home and yard of her own, with humans who can throw the ball with her ALL day! Come meet Fanci, and you won't be disappointed :) We require that ALL current household pets be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and up to date on heartworm prevention.

She is wonderful with other dogs, good with cats that don't run, walks well on leash, is house trained, and uses a doggy door. Dee bonds closely with other dogs and would love to have a doggy brother or sister to play with during the day. Because she likes chasing squirrels, she will need a fenced in yard.
