More About Staffordshire Bull 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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi. My name is Eric and I'm looking for a person to call my own. My foster mom says I am a really good boy!!! They say they think I am 7 or 8 years old and am pretty mellow, whatever that means. I just know that I have been in this thing called "rescue" for way too long and would like a place to hang out and relax with my very own humans. I was in boarding for over a year before this lady named Tara pulled up in a big white van and picked me up and never made me go back. I am really happy now because I get to go for walks and go to the park and do things that I hear all dogs are supposed to do. My foster takes me to the river and even let me walk in the Modesto Christmas parade. That was fun! I wouldn't mind a doggie brother or sister. In fact, I would love that!! But no kitties please. I do not like them quite so much. I do like kids however, and don't mind giving kisses every now and then. But I wouldn't recommend putting me in a home with small children. I love them a lot but I don't realize how big I am sometimes. And I wouldn't want to hurt any kids. I would feel really, really bad. I love belly rubs and squeaker toys!! I also enjoy car rides and my foster mom says I'm pretty good on a leash. But sometimes I see a cat or a bicycle and I want to chase them. I don't like those bicycles either. They move too fast for me. I did go to a Harley-Davidson adoption event today and did great! I had a long day though. I met lots of new people and new doggie friends. I even got a new squeaker toy and lots of love from some cute kiddos. Time for this old man to hit the sheets. If you want to know anything else about me or would like to meet me, please email us @ happydance@katesrescue.org with “Eric” as the header.

Sebastian does well with older children but not with younger or jitter children. He prefers to be indoors and will bark to be let back inside once he's all finished up outside.

He doesn't do well with larger dogs but is ok as long as they don't bother him. He gets really excited about treats and having dog clothes put on him. He does well in or out of his kennel. Sebastian is a skilled climber so he will climb anything just to stick close to his human.His adoption fee of 150 includes his neuter, microchip, shots up to date of adoption, a month of pet insurance, and a wellness check at our vet within 72 hours of adoption.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (long coat). Hello world! I am Jessica. I was previously known to the rescue world as “Baby Jessica” when I was first found just over a year ago. I was adopted but my new family could not give me the care that I require so I am back in the rescue world looking for “the one”. I have a condition where the hip joints in my back legs are missing, so my rear leg mobility is a bit “stiff”. I am a happy go lucky girl; the handicap as others call it does not slow me down one bit! I am able to run and play with big and small dogs, at my foster moms home I had 3 bigger playmates and a few smaller ones too I did magnificent with them all. I don’t like to see my stiff legs as a handicap; I have just as much love to give as the next dog, just need a breather here and there. The vet says currently there is nothing they can, or need to do for my “condition”. As I mature and get older a cart might be needed to help with my old bones, but that’s a long ways away! I am barely a year young and got the energy to prove it. I need a loving family that understands my breed’s ways, and that can keep up with my puppy energy and teach me right from wrong. I am eager to please, but my attention span is rather small so you may have to bribe me with a few treats! I am spayed, up to date, and microchiped. I do good with dogs of all sizes, cats and kids. Though between you and me I could knock the tiny ones over and they might hurt me hanging on my back end so older children are best. Please help me find my forever place! If you are interested in me send an email to katesrescue.org with the header “Jessica” and a rep will contact you with plenty of questions to make sure you are right for me.
