More About Rottweiler 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.

      Dove

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Dove is a 3yr old puppy at heart with a lot of awesome training under her belt. She was brought in as an epileptic alert service dog and went through six months of work towards becoming certified. She's fully crate trained, knows many commands, leash trained, fantastic with children of all ages, loving, and an absolute champ at cuddling. Dove does need to be an only dog, however. She was the victim of some pretty serious abuse when she was a puppy and now sees other dogs as a threat to her life. She needs to be in a home where she can love and play and be the wonderful girl we know her to be without having to fear that she'll be attacked by other animals. Dove would do so well as a family girl, or a hiking companion, or a fellow couch potato (she loves watching baseball games). She would fit in any place that can allow her to be the only pet. Please contact us at 520-977-8000 or 520-406-7533 or fill out an adoption applications at smilingdogrescue.com
