Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Senior Pit Bull looking for that forever home.Edna is around 9-10 years old. She is a lover with people and good with other dogs. Edna had a sad life before being found by animal control. From what I've been told she was found dragging a chain and tangled in a fence behind an abandoned business. She was emaciated. She hadn't known much kindness and was heartworm positive. She has beaten the odds. She survived her heartworm treatment and is doing good! We had an echocardiogram done on her because our vet was worried about her heart and the results were ok. Her heart is slightly enlarged and she has an enlarged artery but since the worms are gone she won't get any worse. So she's OK! She loves her crate and LOVES food. She is very food motivated. Edna is good with other dogs, but she can be possessive of food and bedding, especially at first, when it comes to other dogs. With people she is just a love bug. She just wants to be fed, cuddled, and given a soft place to sleep If you are interested in Edna, please complete the online application or contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Edna Photo courtesy of Fix Your Images Photography, fixyourimages.com

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.

      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Freckles will be shown by appointment only upon receipt of our online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com Meet Freckles! Freckles is a year old heeler mix. She is very sweet and still a wiggly puppy. Freckles gets along fine with other dogs, but like all dogs of this breed mix she does nip at their heels and herds them so she plays a little rough. These dogs do require a fair amount of exercise so she will need to go to an active family who enjoy walks and playing in the yard.

      Breed: Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Mixed (long coat). If you are interested in Faith, please complete the online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com Faith is a beautiful sweet Aussie mix girl around 4 years in age. Faith is quite shy at first and does take a bit of time to warm up to someone new, but once she does she's very sweet and loves to have her belly rubbed. We consider Faith to be special needs because she does not walk on a leash. We are unsure what has transpired in her past but any tugging at her neck or collar or even the presence of a leash coming her way terrifies her. Needless to say a fenced yard will be MANDATORY for Faith. Faith really is no trouble at all, she is low key and will lounge with you all day on her cushion or the couch. She is not destructive and appears to be housebroken (once he learns the new routine). Faith does get along fine with other dogs like most Aussies can be a bit bossy at times. She would do best in a home with older children 10 and up. This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Faith. Faith is not part of the PAWS program.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Boxer Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Lauralai will be shown by appointment only upon receipt of an online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com Laurelai is a sweet roughly 2 to 3 year old Staffy/Lab mix. She started out her life a little rough out on the streets where she was tormented by children chasing her and hitting her with sticks. Because of this she is understandably nervous around children therefore we suggest a home with no children for her. That doesn't mean you can't have kids or grandkids over, it just means if you do, she'd probably prefer being put in a back bedroom or kennel while they visit. Laurelai has been with other dogs and has done fine with them but she would need a proper introduction and can be selective as to who she wants to interact with. She would likely do best with a laid back male dog or would be great as an only dog. This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Lauralai. Laurelai is not part of the PAWS program.

      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Fido is an adorable 5 year old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix weighing about 15lbs. Fido has had a rough life thus far and was removed from his prior home by animal control on cruelty charges. He appears to have had a very abusive past. Like only dogs can do well....Fido has let go of that past horrible life and is embracing his new life as a well loved boy! The scars of his past are still present though in some ways and he is nervous meeting new people and needs a little time to warm up to them. He is uncomfortable to being picked up at first as well and particularly nervous about someone approaching and trying to pick him up or pet him with 2 hands. He has learned that some people are nice and he is willing to trust again. He loves us and is quite affectionate and loving, but it will take time to build that trust with a new person. No kids for Fido. He needs someone willing to go slow and shower him with kindness and gentleness because he hasn't had much of that in his lifetime.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Petunia is an adorable small Pit Bull Terrier who is just as sweet as she can be. She was found as a stray and brought into the shelter with painted toenails so we know she was someone's baby at some point but they never came to the shelter to find her. Petunia is a young girl around 18 months in age and still has a lot of puppy left in her, she's happy and excited when she meets you but does calm down and loves to have her belly rubbed. Petunia does fine with some dogs and is playful. She can be a leash reactive on walks however. Petunia is ready to find her forever home....maybe one that will paint those toenails again for her and treat her like the princess she is! If you are interested in Petunia, please contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com or complete our online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com and we will forward it on.

Monte is a sweet happy go lucky terrier mix around 10 years old Monte is a great boy, he's happy, housebroken and gets along fine with other dogs but is somewhat selective in who he'd like to be his doggy companion. He'd be great as an only dog or as a companion to a laid back dog as Monte, understandably doesn't like a dog that gets up in his face and bugs him....who can blame him? Monte is not a super small boy, he's on the larger side of small weighing in the neighborhood of 20lbs....about the size of a Schnauzer (which he might be partly). While Monte loves his people he is going to need an adjustment period going into a new home as he get anxious in new situations. He'd love to be a dog with stay at home parents that would love to shower him with attention. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a new home, please contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Monte.
