Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mastiff / Mixed. Moses is a breath taking boy, just about 2 years old, and about 60 lbs. He has the cutest goggle markings around his eyes! Between his astonishing good looks and magnetic personality, Moses is a hit anywhere he goes. He is absolutely wonderful with people and children. He does get along with dogs; however, a meet and greet would be required. Moses also loves car rides, belly rubs, and snuggling. He often gets attacked by his ninja feline foster sister- poor boy doesn't know what hit him! We rescued Moses out of deplorable conditions where he was left locked in a room without food or water for over a week. You see the house was a host to vast array of illegal activity. When the people were arrested, he was left behind chained in the room. When the landlord came to look at the property, he need to get him out. After a string of calls, he got our number and told us we had to get him immediately or he will end up in the shelter. We high tailed it over to him and got him. Moses greeted us with the HAPPIEST of spirits. If you could not see his deplorable physical condition, you would never have known he was starving and insurmountably thirsty for a week (during our summer heat wave nonetheless). He was just so grateful to be alive, outside, and with people who care. After witnessing where he came from, we appropriately named him Moses- who has a heart of gold. Sadly, his horrific life left him with more than just hunger, thirst, and an emaciated frame. Moses was covered in old scars. We do not know where this is from. However, it is clear that he was a victim of circumstance more than once. Our hearts bleed for Moses; and, after seeing him, we know he will simultaneously break and capture your heart too.

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
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED! Rusty is a splendidly handsome 1 year old American Bully boy. He and his best friend, Julie are owner surrenders currently in boarding with our rescue. Rusty, a chunk-a-monk walks well on the leash, playful, and super calm at home. This boy is a real show stopper- the pictures do not do him any justice! Rusty loves to watch TV and sun bathe. He is also house broken and loves to travel with is humans. Although we dont know how Rusty is with cats, we know he is very playful and loving with dogs. This big boy is really a gentle giant when it comes to people and really knows how to behave around kids. However, of course, you should always supervise children with any dog! Rusty came to us with Julie as a bonded pair. Although the 2 did not live together, they are life long friends and play mates. Julie's mother was evicted, so Julie went to stay with Rusty and his human. Then, Rusty's human was arrested and imprisoned. Julie's mother, who is homeless, called us begging for help. We gladly took the 2 sweet pups under our wing. These 2, especially Julie, endured so much in such a short time period. It is time that they know love and stability. These pups are victims of circumstance, but clearly were loved their entire lives. If interested in fostering or adopting or fostering Rusty and Julie, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Brindle Bean is the prettiest little pittie cutie. At 8 months old, this girl is an old soul with a youthful heart. We know this sounds like an oxymoron, but allow us to explain. You see, Bean loves to lounge, relax, and take in her second life like it is her retirement, cherishing her new freedom. Yet, when it comes time to play with her foster siblings, she is ready to rumble, tug, and bounce. Bean loves to go for hikes, enjoy the outdoors, and ride shotgun. When its time to rest, she will find the softest cushion or fluffiest bed and rest her body and soul. If she has a friend to curl up with, human or canine, she believes the more the merrier! Better yet, she will find the heat source, especially in the winter, and curl up right next to it. She just loves fireplaces and heaters. Bean is a princess with her paws too and uses them like hands. She will let her in and out of her foster home's porch by putting her paw on the handle and pulling it open- such a smart and dexterous girl! She is the best of both worlds and adapt to anything you have laid out for her. Bean came to us when she was abandoned at an NYPD precinct. They saw how special and afraid she was and could not bare to bring her to the shelter. We were happy to step in for this little girl. If interested in adopting Bean, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Handsome 2 year old Benji is a 65lb hound, boxer, lab mix Hurricane Harvey survivor seeking a foster or adoptive home. This boy came to use with several other dogs fleeing the horror of the storm and is a true survivor. Benji is dog friendly, playful, a great listener, and housebroken. This boy just begs for someone to give him a chance. He was clearly led a life of neglect and abandonment in the past and came to us in pretty rough shape with several old and neglected injuries that predated Harvey. We mended all those old wounds and he is completely healthy. Now, Benji just asks to finally have a family to call his own. He loves people, sees beauty in everyone, and build a connection quickly. When you are getting ready, Benji will lay down by your feet and hold your legs to let you know that he will miss you while you are gone. Benji is the most endearing boy who truly appreciates having a second chance. Give him a chance and you will have a partner for life, one that will never give up on you and will remain your loyal protector forever. While easy going and mellow at home, Benji has a medium energy level outside and would do well with someone that can give him regular exercise or play dates with other dogs. Benji is dog friendly, housebroken, crate trained, and overall not a barker. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He does well in the city and suburban environments. If interested in fostering or adopting Benji, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.

      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Looking for a new best friend? Someone to chat about regarding anything and every thing? Then, meet Philip! Amazing Philip is an adorable, light hearted, 2 year old 50 lb bulldog pittie mix. He will eagerly listen to what you have to say, and chat right back to you with the most comical noises, followed by the sweetest kisses! Silly and happy to be alive, Phillip will take his leash in his mouth and prance along next to you. Philip wants to see everything that goes on. He will climb on his dog house and try with all his might to see over the fence. Nothing gets by this yenta boy! Philip is a benevolent, forgiving, resilient boy who just loves affection! Clearly, he making up for lost time. What this boy endured in his life will make you cringe. We don't know the full details, but he was seized from his owner and taken to the shelter as 'evidence'. His former subhumans were charged with SEVEN counts of animal cruelty! What could they have done to this poor angel. We know of one thing, starvation. Philip was an emaciated skeleton when we rescued him. Even with such deprivation, Philip is so good around food, showing no possessive or aggressive behaviors. It's a miracle, really. In fact, throughout it all, Philip has shown nothing but tenderness and fondness to all those he's met. Philip is dog and cat friendly. In all honesty, it is hard to get a picture that does this boy justice. Anytime we try to photograph him, he is wiggling and too busy trying to kiss and lean into you.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Princess Leia has it all. Instead of 2 Cinnabons on either side of her head, she has 2 velvet soft ears and the most expressive eyes. This (now) 7ish month old girl came to us after a horrible event. You see, she was thrown from a car on the highway. A kind man saw this happen, pulled over, called us, and we took her in. Understandably, Leia was terrified. When we examined her, we found she had new and old wounds on her precious face and shied away from us. She didn't know who to trust, who to turn to. After a few days, Leia BLOSSOMED into a vibrant, affectionate, cuddly, and outgoing young puppy. This girl has springs in her legs and songs in her steps. Leia loves to play and redefines happiness. She loves big and small dogs, gets along with cats, and enjoys exploring the world. She is grateful for her second chance in life and to all those that helped her get here today. No longer the timid girl was once met, Princess Leia is the star of the show and loves to show off. She is eager to please and learns quickly. This girl would love a home that is ready to adopt a pup to train and work with. She would make a great agility dog, hiking buddy, playmate for another dog, and/or all of the above (the best multiple choice answer) If interested in adopting Princess Leia, please email us at twentypawsrescue@gmail.com or info@twentypawsrescue.com. **Due to a gmail glitch, we lose some emails.
