Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Came in w/ 3 pups Hi I'm Miley. I do not have a tragic tale of unfortunate beginnings like some of my kennel mates do. I was just stray. Well not just a stray, I was a mom dog with my three precious babies, sitting in the pound. A lady from Partners came and saved my babies and took me too. Oh how grateful I was that my babies were going to live. I was even more grateful to hear that all three were adopted into loving homes. I was so hopefully that soon it would be my turn to find a forever home where I be loved and cherished too....but here I sit. You see, I have what you'd call "stranger danger" issues. New people can be kind of scary for me. I do much better with women and warm up faster to them, but men take me a little longer. I have gotten much better over the years, but the issue is sometimes still there. I do just great with the male care givers at the shelter that I've grown to love and trust. I love to roll over for tummy rubs and play with other male dogs. There is a volunteer that comes a few times a week to walk me and it took me 5 minutes to fall in love with her. I wish there was someone out there who would take a chance on me and be willing to help me work through my fear. I'm really a fun loving girl who loves play, snuggle and give lots of kisses. I am spayed, current on vaccinations, has her annual rabies vaccination, dewormed and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee is $145.00 IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING, GO TO OUR HOME PAGE AT www.partnersforpetsil.org and fill out an application. Adoptions are held at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart every Saturday of the month from 11am-3:30pm and at the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart every Sunday and the first Saturday of the month from 11am-3:30pm. We are also at Petco in Edwardsville Crossing on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 11:30-3:30 pm. The cats are only at Glen Carbon. Please let us know if you are interested in a pet and we can arrange to have them meet you at one of the adoption events.

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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). 03/30/18: Hi! Serta, here. I just wanted to give you an update. I am now six (6) years old and have been at the shelter for a long time. I like everyone here, but would love to find that special family that I could call my own. Would you like to meet me? 10/04/14 Serta is guessed to be a 2-3 year old, cattle dog mix. Serta is a sweet and loving young lady. Serta was found June 10 with a horribly embedded rope around her neck and severely emaciated. She was taken to Horseshoe Animal Hospital where the rope was removed. For awhile there, she had lost her vision too. But through all her treatments and bandage changes, with people she didn't even know, she was wonderful! Always happy, tail wagging, and giving kisses. As if that wasn't enough, the poor girl had to endure heartworm treatment also. Once again, she came through like a champ. Now Serta is ready to know what it's like to have a real home with lots of love. She knows some basic commands like "sit", "down", "shake", and "stay" and she walks well on a leash. Serta would be best as an only dog and in a home with no children. Her adoption fee is $145.00. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm neg, has her annual rabies vaccination, dewormed and micro-chipped. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING, GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT www.partnersforpetsil.org to fill out an online adoption application. Please visit our adoptable pets at PetSmart in O'Fallon, IL every Saturday or the Glen Carbon, IL PetSmart the 1st Saturday of the month and every Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If there is a dog in particular you would like to meet at PetSmart, be sure to email and inquire whether that dog will be at that particular PetSmart that day.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Emery is loyal, affectionate, playful and spunky. Hi! My name is Emery and I'm a 2 year old Pit Bull. I have finally finished my treatment and am heartworm free! I was rescued from the pound with my litter of pups and now that they have all been adopted I am looking for my forever home. I am a very affectionate and playful girl and I know how to sit! My favorite things are food, nylabones and playing with my dog friends outside. The staff aren't sure what my life was like before I came to the shelter but they think a man was very mean to me. Men that are strangers make me very nervous because of this. But I'm sure I can be bribed with some ham or chicken and then we can be best friends forever! I was scared of one of the male staff members the first time I met him, but he understood my fear and gained my trust. Now I love him so much and am very excited to see him! Do you think you can show me how a real man treats a dog and give me my happy ever after that I deserve?? Apply for me today, my adoption fee is $145. If you are interested in adopting please go to our website at www.partnersforpetsil.org and fill out an online application.
