More About American Pit 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.

      Sex: Male Male

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Hello, I'm Murphy! Let me tell you I love cuddling and sleeping on top of people and getting belly rubs. I can sit and lie down and would do great with more training. I am eager to please my people and would love to learn more tricks and manners. I have a few impulse control issues I need to work on and training will help make me the best dog I can be! I love walks, hiking, sniffing everything outside, and rolling on the ground scratching my back. I love chew toys, bones and tug of war. I do pretty good loose leash walking with a harness and getting treats throughout the walk. I LOVE the groomer and all the attention I get there. I don't mind anything they do to me there. I don't even mind getting my nails trimmed. I’m also good in the car so I can go on road trips with you! I am crate trained and do excellent in the crate. I am very quiet and well behaved in my crate. However, I don't need to be crated when my people are out of the house, I just sleep on the couch. I am potty trained and have never had an accident in the house! I’m good with other dogs. I love playing with other dogs, and I’m actually quite submissive. Unfortunately, no cats for me. I’m a pretty amazing pup, so if you're interested, please fill out an Application and come meet me!

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Hi, I'm Maverick! I am one of the happiest guy's you will ever meet. My tail is always wagging and I am always ready to sneak into your lap for some definite cuddle and nappy time. My foster mom says I have one of the best squish faces she has ever seen! She also thinks I have the most amazing snort/grunt any dog has ever had! Did I tell you I'm good with other dogs. I wouldn't mind having a furry sibling to live with. I'm also good with cats as long as I have a slow introduction to them! I'm also good with the tiny humans, because all I want to do is give lots of kisses and lots of snuggles! Bath time is one of my favorite things, but not as much as I enjoy the towel wrestling I do while my foster mom is trying to dry me off. I get the zoomies and love to play tug with the towel. I also really enjoy getting brushed. Car rides are fun for me. I ride nicely in a crate in the back or also in the back seat looking out the window at all the wonderful things that are out there to see. I do well on the leash, but could probably use a little leash training to make me a super star. I really like to work hard for treats, so this should be an easy task to accomplish. I am crate trained and sleep in my crate at night. I also do well in my crate during the day while my foster mom is at work. However, my foster mom says that I could probably be left out during the day because I don't destroy things I'm not supposed to! If you are looking for the best snuggle buddy, who would be the best companion a person could ask for, come fill out an application!

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Agsty teen, casual crooner, unapologetic foodie, passionate about mountain climbing and the steeplechase, likes listening to reggae on vinyl and ironically hates Pitbull, seriously into monogamy, enjoys quiet walks in the country, and spending quality time on the couch with his best girl. Guilty pleasures include canned spray cheese and binge-watching The Crown. Dean Martin is an old-fashioned, take it slow kinda guy. He will make you work for his affection, but he is worth the effort. Being gushy and in your face isn't his style, that wouldn't be dignified. Deano is more reserved in his affection and likes to get to know a person before deciding if they are a cool cat. If you get the nod of approval consider yourself lucky, he falls hard and treats his lady love like a queen. Dean's is all about quality over quantity (unless you are talking about meatballs)... a few really good friends are better than a big ballroom full of people, the party life just isn't his scene. Dean Martin usually maintains his composure with people (he has a reputation to maintain ya know), all bets are off though with his canine contemporaries. Deano fanboys hard for his 4-legged friends. It is truly embarrassing to see such a hip dude acting like a preteen girl at an Ed Sheeran concert. It is a sight to behold. While artistically he grooves with Lenny Kravitz, his true soul sister is Gladys Kravitz. Deano is the nosy neighbor on the block. He revels in peeking through windows and keeping a close eye on any strange goings on in the 'hood. Nothing gets by on his watch. Want to know more, follow his adventures @ https://www.facebook.com/TheCNPGang/ or get in touch, we love to talk about this dude.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Hi there I'm Kenai. I'm named after a city in Alaska, maybe you can take me there someday. I've been told I'm a pretty cool dog and I'm pretty darn smart. I know what my kennel is and I go in there to sleep during the day and at night. I'd rather sleep in the bed with the humans, but I'll go in and quiet down at night and be super excited to see you in the morning. I have to be honest, I like other dogs but I seem to get really excited and over stimulated when first meeting them. I will need slow introductions to other animals, but once I relax and slow down a bit, I can get along with other animal siblings just fine. Some of my favorite things to do are sleeping on the dog couch with my foster sister, eating next to her, and sharing licks of peanut butter on a spoon. I've been going to class about my "issue" and I have been making great strides in learning how to handle my excitedness! I've spent some time with the tiny humans and seem to get along with them just fine. I like the cuddles and kisses I get from them! I'm even good with cats with slow intros! I play fetch like a champ and if you have a fenced in yard I would love to chase my huge ball around the yard - I can exercise myself. I don't mind baths. Did I also mention I love to go for rides? I love to look out the window for awhile but then I go to sleep if we are going for a long ride. And man do I know how to cuddle. So please fill out an Application and come meet me, I promise I won't disappoint you!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 350.00. Hi I’m Smiley! I may be little at 36 pounds but I am mighty. My foster mom calls me a Velcro dog. I’m not sure what that means but I LOVE my people. If you are lying on the couch I like to be snuggling with you. My favorite things to do are snuggle with my people, chew on nylabones, and chase my toys. I got my name from the toothy grin I get when I smile. I live with another dog and cats. The resident dog is a 73 pound male pitbull and we get along great. We love to play together! I am a submissive girl who just wants other dogs to love me! I get along good with the cats that live with me. I hang out in my crate overnight when my foster mom is sleeping and when she is at work. I’m really quiet in my crate. My foster mom says I’m the best behaved dog in a crate that she’s ever had! I am also potty trained. I already know how to sit but I’m excited to learn more tricks when I start obedience class soon. I’ve very treat/food motivated so if training involves treats bring it on!! I don’t live with any kids but I have met them a time or two and I love them! I would love to live with a family with kids so I’d have more people to love on. A note from Smiley’s Foster Mom- Smiley is a special needs dog due to being shy and fearful. She needs a loving and patient adopter who will give her all the time she needs to get comfortable. We feel she will do best in a home with another dog as she has now in her foster home. She does great in her foster home but still gets scared in new situations like going to the pet store. She feels the most comfortable at home snuggling on the couch, playing with the resident dog or cat, playing with toys, or chewing on a nylabone. If you give this sweet girl a chance you won’t be disappointed. She’s an amazing and loving dog once she feels confident and comfortable in her surroundings!
