Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). ***THIS IS NOT A PAWS AND PRAYERS ANIMAL; this is a courtesy listing, please contact the individual listed below to inquire about this animal. Paws and Prayers is not responsible for the adoption of this animal and all interested parties should reach out to the contact, Ramona, for an application or questions. 330-316.9857 Thank you for choosing to rescue!*** POOR SWEET JACOB has been in rescue for almost 2 yrs now. He just wants his own bff, his own human that he can give kisses to and snuggle with. Won't you meet with him? His pictures do him no justice. he is a very Handsome Guy ;) Jacob was known as the ball park stray. He lived there for well over a year, eluding any capture including the dog warden. He was fed over the fence by a kind 62 yr old man. I learned about Jacob and after a months time was able to trap him. Jacob was heartworm positive but has been treated and doing well. Jacob is 3yr old Chocolate lab/American bull terrier mix, weighing about 65lbs. Jacob is neutered, utd on shots, rabies and heartworm treated. Jacob does well with my other rescues, potty trained via doggy door and is average on a leash. We are still working on some things, but he is doing great for having no socialization for over a year. I would describe Jacob as a big baby who loves to have you constant attention, though he does well when put in his kennel. If you are interested in Jacobs Story, please contact me, Ramona 330-316-9857 Home check is a must. Adoption fee is $125

Request to Add a New 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.

MORE MAGGY PICTURES >> https://goo.gl/mCNEii Maggy is the life of the party! At 40-45 pounds, Maggy is the cutest little playmate you will ever meet! Maggy is house trained and crate trained and enjoys sleeping at the foot of the bed, but would LOVE to be your snuggle buddy if you wanted! Maggy is very playful, she loves to play fetch in the yard, she likes water, and she is happy to run and explore with you! She gets very attached to her owners and loves to stay close to them. She loves to snuggle up to you, give kisses and hugs and receive belly rubs! Maggy is very smart and although energetic, she would thrive if you continued her training. Her future family should intend to exercise her throughout the day. She settles down with you at night to watch a movie so long as she has adequate exercise. For rainy days in, Maggy loves chasing you through the house! She also LOVES spending time outdoors. She would love to be your camping or yard work buddy!

Maggy would be best suited with a dog her size or larger (submissive would be best) or as an only dog. She has resource-guarded with other dogs before, so an adopter must be willing to work with that if they have other dogs. Problems *only occur when food is involved. **A privacy fence (meaning not chain link) or rural area is required. No cats, no kids under 12 (simply due to Maggie's energy and size). No exceptions.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200. Please contact Jamie (jamie@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. Bishop is one of the sweetest, most gentle dogs I have ever met! He is great with people of all ages, including my five year old granddaughter. He has a laid back demeanor, but is also very silly & goofy making us laugh often with his playful antics. Bishop trots around the backyard sniffing & entertaining himself. He is not a barker, only an occasional "woof" at a squirrel up in the tree that's been teasing him. He has learned some commands & we continue to work with him. He is definitely a people pleaser so he learns fast. His tail is always wagging! He loves treats & takes them gently. We are still working on crate training, but he is not destructive in his room. He is very cuddly & affectionate.

I also love to cuddle with my foster mom and give her LOTS of kisses. She tells me I smile at her! I am doing really well in my foster home and I am learning to feel comfortable in new places and with new people. I didn't have the best experiences as a young pup and I am looking for an owner that is patient, but also willing to introduce me slowly to new things.

      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Rottweiler Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 50. Please contact Marty (marty@pawsandprayers.org) for more information about this pet. “Hapless, Happy” Hya(cinth) This is the story of special needs dog name Hyacinth, or as we like to call her: Hya. Dogs are amazingly resilient animals that can withstand a large amount of physical and emotional neglect and abuse yet rarely allow it to have a permanent impact on their lives. Once they feel safe, comfortable, and fed; they put behind them the negative aspects in their past that most humans would have great difficulty doing. In rescue, since many of the dogs we meet don’t come with a written or verbal history, we can only learn about them through observation and interaction. Hya came to us through a southern Ohio animal shelter as an adult dog. We estimated her age to be about 8 years old and her breed to be a Shar Pei and Rottweiler mix. She weighs in at about 60 pounds. Early observations revealed that Hya loves attention and was eager to interact with people. She was, however, not at all interested in meeting or being near other dogs. She barked and growled at other dogs and tried to drag anyone walking her on a leash towards any dog she might see. Being in the same house with other dogs was seemingly impossible without barriers. This is a trait not unusual in some dogs and can be mostly overcome with training. Over a period of time, while in foster care, Hya acted out by trying to bite at people that touched her in certain areas of her body. This is an obvious sign that she is telling us not to touch her. But why? Did this area hurt? Did someone once handle her roughly at one time; she remembers this and doesn’t want it to happen again? It’s not easy to diagnose. Dogs can withstand an enormous amount of pain and show no outward signs until the pain is debilitating. Since she came with no history; we have no idea what people may have done to her. Despite the limited budget our group has; we were able to get x-rays done on Hya that revealed why she acted out. She suffers from degenerative disc disease in her spine. But worse than that; she has several BB’s lodged in her body in various areas. Below the skin, and under the fur; they are not noticeable. Pain management would help ease some of her discomfort, but she would still be leery of being touched in areas that would historically be painful. So, faced with a dog that doesn’t like other dogs and has a potential of trying to bite someone who she perceives may harm her, what do we do with her? The easy answer, of course, is to put her down. Recognizing that she will always have some kind of physical discomfort that will only get worse over time and knowing that just seeing other dogs stresses her out; does she have much of a chance at a happy life? Devoting limited financial and human resources on a dog with serious issues can mean that other dogs without issues may not get the help they need. We also have to be ever mindful of the liability of adopting out a dog that is known to try and bite people. Maybe we should try and give her a little more time by working with her through an experienced dog trainer and Vet? This is, at best, a long road that takes time, patience, and dedicated people to volunteer their time. For the moment, the second option is what we are trying to do. But since there is currently no fosters available that can bring Hya into their home and she has to spend most of her time in a kennel; this greatly slows down our ultimate goal in rescue: finding a forever, happy home. For that, we need to reach out to dog lovers with true kindness and patience in their hearts. We need a person who believes having a loving dog in their home that also needs special handling is worth it. We need a person who believes in continuing non-aversive training methods to help Hya understand that other dogs are not a threat to her. We need a person who will be diligent in managing her aches and pains through proper Vet care. We need a person willing to accept the responsibility of opening their heart and home to a special dog that will ultimately reward them with loyalty and love. Are you that person? Hya's adoption fee is $50 and includes free training with a professional trainer!!
