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.

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Nesbit, MS
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature). I'm Cain, a Miniature Poodle. I lived most of my life in a small crate until I came to Southern Friends at the end of January. That's not a good way to live. However, my life completely turned around when I got here! I've been living in a house with people and other dogs and I'm loving it! I have a doggie bed that I enjoy stretching out on; I have a yard to run in; a lot of people come by to pet me; and there is this thing called the TV that I'm not too sure about yet! This is DEFINITELY the life for me! Does it sound like I would be a good fit for your lifestyle? Cain was rescued from a local shelter. He is UTD on shots, neutered and on heartworm preventative.

      Posted Breed: Akita / German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). UPDATE 12/25/16: Clyde is in a foster home with Bonnie while going through heartworm treatment. He should be ready for her forever home in about two weeks! He does well with the puppy in the foster home and is very gentle. He seems to get his feelings hurt easily when the foster raises her voice, even to one of the other dogs (he pretty much stays out of trouble). He does NOT do well in a crate, but does well tethered when the foster is away. He has had no accidents in the house! He greets everyone lovingly and gently. He is well behaved all the time! He would not do well around cats as he wants to go after them. Oh, one more thing...he's very vain - LOVES to look at the handsome boy in the mirror! LOL Hi! I'm Clyde! I was rescued along with my sidekick, Bonnie, off the streets of Memphis by a Good Samaritan and am so happy to be safe now. I'm a sweet boy and a BIG boy! I'm about 4 years old. I'm UTD on shots and neutered. I'll be going through heartworm treatment soon to get rid of those nasty things, too! (Treatment will be covered in my adoption fee.) heart emotico I'm UTD on shots and spayed. I am heartworm positive, but we are working on getting that cleared up. They think I'm a Shepherd mix.
