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.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. www.thepitstoprescue.com "Your final stop for your furever friend!" Meet LEXI!!! She has the sweetest disposition, almost as sweet as her soft kisses. She is two years old, house trained, walks easy on a leash, she’s good with other dogs, but dislikes cats. Lexi is Heartworm positive and will be spayed soon. No more puppies for this gal! If you have any questions about Lexi, please message our page or if you’re interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption application at www.thepitstoprescue.com ! Lexi's History... Hi, I’m Lexi! I’ve recently moved to a new place called an animal shelter. My old family kept me outside day after day and I really wanted and needed human interaction, so I kept escaping the yard and doing whatever it took to be with people. Last time I escaped, I ran to the park and wanted to play with the kids (I’m used to being around children) but understandably those parents didn’t know how sweet I am, so they called the police department and animal control. Thankfully, the animal control ladies remembered me and called my Dad. Well…. My dad said he was tired of me escaping the back yard and couldn’t keep paying expensive fines, so he owner surrendered me. I’m going to miss my old family, but I’m excited to see where I’m heading next! I now have a cool bed, lots of toys to play with and people really love me here! I’m always going for walks or lounging in the play yard. I heard the shelter ladies bragging that I never potty in my kennel or in the office! Yes, I really enjoy being in the office and I happily greet everyone who comes in! Also, one of the shelter ladies put me out in the play yard by myself and left me out there for a little while. Little did I know that she was watching me on the video camera to see if I would have anxiety, but I didn’t. I just had a feeling that she would come back for me and not leave me out there alone day after day, after day… and she did come back for me! She found me just sitting there like the good girl that I am! We require that ALL current household pets be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and up to date on heartworm prevention.

Don't let this elegant patent leather pitty bull mix fool you though. She is just comfortable playing fetch and hunting mice as she is snuggling on the couch. Sandra Dee was found at about 6 weeks old on a chain with no food or water in the cold. Dee is now almost 2 and has learned how to be a good family member. 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. She is super smart; knows 'sit' 'shake' 'lay down' and 'touch' and would make an excellent agility dog! And her silly antics will keep you laughing. Dee is heartworm negative, spayed, up to date on shots, microchipped and ready to start a new life with a loving active household. If you are interested in fostering or adopting, please go to www.thepitstoprescue.com to complete your application today!!
