Posted Breed: Saint Bernard. My name is Simon. I'm a large and lovable Saint Bernard. I'm a pretty laid back kind of guy who loves people. I LOVE tennis balls and playing fetch. When I'm tired out from playing ball, I love to lay my head on your lap for some petting and attention. I'm very bonded to my buddy, Sara and would like to be adopted with her. I need a yard with a physical fence where I can play safely. **Please Note: We are only able to adopt within 30-40 miles of Baltimore, MD.

More About Saint Bernard 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: Monkton, MD
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Please Note: This is a courtesy posting, not a Pet Rescue of Maryland dog. For information on adopting Squirrel, please email (kjones092@su.edu) or call 301-514-3476. Squirrel is a small pitbull mix (slightly overweight at this time!) and she is very sweet and loves to snuggle. She is current on her shots and is spayed. Throughout her whole life Squirrel has been a great dog who deserves more than I can give her at this time. I am a nurse so I work anywhere from 12-15 hours a day and cannot give her the time and exercise she needs. This little girl has never met a human she doesn't love (including kids) and would be a great dog for a family or just one or two people. She is content to get under the covers with you and chew her nylabone all day long. She has no aggression issues, you can stick your whole hand in her bowl as she eats and she will just carefully eat around it or look at you and wait for you to get out of her way. She is also completely house trained and will tell you when she needs to go. When she is home alone she is happy to be loose or crated.
