More About Shih Tzu 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
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. Gingee is a beautiful 4.5 year old fawn and white pit bull mix weighing 58 pounds. Gingee is a wonderful, loyal, loving, smart and sensitive dog. She enjoys playing with toys (bones, ropes, balls and squeaky toys.) and loves playing fetch with tennis balls and hide-&-seek with her toys (hide her toy and tell her to find it, she is VERY good at finding it.). Gingee craves human affection and thoroughly enjoys chest and booty scratches/rubs. She loves hiking and walking and is a speedy runner. When she is not being active she loves to just be around you, lay on you if she can, or just lounge and chew on a toy. She walks beautifully on leash and knows how to sit, stay, give paw, come, lay down and knows additional commands like where's your toy, bring it here, leave it, off, heel and bed. Although Gingee has been professionally trained, she needs a home with consistent discipline, patience, care and love as well as plenty of exercise. Gingee will thrive in an active home without other dogs or children under 10. She is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. - If you are interested in adoption please submit an adoption application and our adoption coordinator/matchmaker will get in touch with you shortly: http://www.wagsandwalks.org/adoption-application [please do not submit an application for courtesy post dogs - contact the person directly]
