More About Rat Terrier 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: Social Circle, GA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Kelly (kellypatriciamorgan@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Application is required - Please go to www.ppnk.org 200.00 adoption fee. Ritz, or Xena as her foster parents call her, is an apx 2 year old spayed female pit mix on the smaller side who absolutely loves everyone and loves life. If you are looking for a dog to play fetch with or take hiking, an incredibly loyal stick by your side sweetheart who gives constant kisses to everyone she meets, Xena is your girl. She is house-trained, crate trained, knows sit, and walks perfectly on leash. She currently is fostered with four other dogs of various sizes, ages, and genders and does well with all as well as one dog-savy cat. She gets nervous around new dogs, so structured and slow introductions are best for her right now while she works on building her confidence, so she wouldn't' be a good dog park dog at this moment. She loves kids but would do best in a home with older or more dog-savy children as she tends to bounce around and occasionally jumps (something she is working on!!). If you are looking for a super happy well-trained pup to add to your family, submit an application on Xena today! Also ask about our sleepover policy, available on all dogs over 6 months. All our animals receive professional veterinary attention including spay/neuter, testing, vaccination, deworming, food and shelter.

He has one little quirk, he climbs fences....the good thing is that he's not really an escape artist, he'd rather be around people, so if you are out in a fence with him, he won't go anywhere, but he can...lol All our animals receive professional veterinary attention including spay/neuter, testing, vaccination, deworming, food and shelter.

Fenced yard required Hi I'm Dino! After my brother (Jake-also listed on this site) and I lost my Mom, we found ourselves searching for a home where we can live out the rest of our lives to our full potential. I love my brother, but he always steals my thunder, so a fresh start is not out of the question for me. I would love to find someone who will play, snuggle and love me with all their heart til the end. My blanket is never too far away and I love to sleep in the bed with you. I wouldn't mind having another dog (No cats please) to play with, as long as he or she can share like I can. Though I am less active than by brother of 13 years, I am a great verminator :-) All our animals receive professional veterinary attention including spay/neuter, testing, vaccination, deworming, food and shelter.
