Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is Billie Ripken and I love life. They say I never have a bad day but I just believe you need to live life to the fullest and with lots of gusto. My foster mama says I have the best smile and give the best hugs and kisses. Some may say I need a job, but foster mom says I need a home that will tire my brain and my body. So, I am an active girl who likes to learn and do things, really I am no couch potato.Swimming is my favorite hobby, along with chasing my ball, and hiking. I have done some really fun things like a rally competition, dock diving practice, and scent work. My foster sister would tell you that she loves me and loves to play with me but I sometimes forget she gets tired. The only thing I am scared of is having my nails trimmed but give me some peanut butter and I will let you trim away! I am cute when I give hugs. I am silly when I climb trees, But mostly my foster parents think I am special and unique because I am not like most dogs. They are all about keeping me busy. I have done lots of training, and know sit, stay/wait, down, heel, I have great leash manners, and I'm so smart I know commands in German as well. My special tricks are circle spin, front, right, left, with me, and find it, I would love a home where I get to go on adventures, learn knew things, swim, and play with a friend, and have someone who understands I am special and who sees the world as bright and sunny has I do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 45 lbs, Age - 5 years, 3 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

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: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Meet Spruce! This young lady lives in a foster home with another dog and is keeping everyone on their toes. Speaking of toes, you need to make sure your slippers are on your feet or she might just walk off with one! Spruce is picking up on new skills quickly, her confidence has grown as she has settled into life with her foster family. She loves to go for walks, and is working on that annoying heel command. After all, there are so many exciting things to see and smell when you're in the great outdoors! She is a growing girl whose coordination is good for a giggle sometimes. She is a sweet girl who is still learning the ropes, but has a lot of potential. Her foster points out that Spruce does not like being touched on the head or having anything coming over the top of her head. They have made progress with her comfort level, and can now scratch the top of her head as long as they start with a good chin scratch. This is such important information to know. It may seem like a little thing, but since we know it makes her uncomfortable we can adjust our actions to help make sure she's secure in her environment. Reading body language and allowing a dog to adjust at their own pace is so important when you are bringing a new dog home. Her favorite activity is going on pack walks with her foster brother. He is teaching her the ropes of city living. Spruce has a long, happy life ahead of her, if you think she'd fit into your family please submit an application.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Ace is a young, playful, goofy pup. He likes to follow his people around and will never turn down a chance to snuggle under the covers! He has some basic obedience, but is still easily distracted. He will be starting training classes with Bella's in the coming weeks. Being that he is still young, he loves to play. He is learning brain games and enjoys exercise. Ace lives on the theory of Play Hard, Sleep Hard. He pounces like a cat when playing and it is hilarious. His signature move when playing with one of the resident dogs is the quick spin. Ace picks up on things quickly and we look forward to teaching more in his time with us. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Weight - 60 pounds - Age - 1 year ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index Meet and greets take place after application is approved.

      Hazel

      rescue
      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hazel is an older lady who came to Bella's Bully Buddies when her owners could no longer care for her and reached out to find her a loving home. She was friendly right away with adults and teenagers, and after being introduced to the household dogs, Hazel clearly knew her place was at the bottom of the pack and behaved respectfully. She's is housetrained and knows the "sit" command. Even though she's a little older she is still more than able to learn new tricks! She enjoys outdoor time and playing for a little while with the other dogs, but her favorite thing is being scratched. Belly, back, neck, chest . . . it's all good. On a perfect day you will find Hazel snoring on the sofa while curled up next to a person or going for a car ride. Her foster family says she is a snuggle bug -- she likes to curl up next to you and rest her head on your legs or lap She's not fond of being in the dark, and too many steps on a flight of stairs bother her, most likely because she's a little older and probably feels those stairs more than a younger dog would. If you have room in your heart to give his pretty lady a loving home for the rest of her days, please submit an application. There's no love like the love of an old dog! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 75 lbs, Age - 11 years, 6 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. This little powerhouse is Paisley! She models her life after the Energizer Bunny, she keeps going and going and going! Paisley will need a home with very active adults but no small children. She's a sweet girl and loves people, but her energy level and love of physical contact makes her a good fit for a home with only adults or possibly adults and teenagers. Paisley is an incredibly loving and playful little pup. She is housebroken and crate trained. She knows several commands, such as sit, stay, down, and paw. Her favorite things to play with are squeaky toys and a rope pull toy. Paisley is very curious and always willing to help, windows are her specialty! She's a professional snuggler, preferring it if you'll lay on the couch so she can lay on top of you. Her adorable gaze makes it hard to disturb her peace, so if you need a little couch time here's the perfect excuse! She loves her crate and will go in on her own when she's ready for a break from the excitement of running and playing. We work hard to match our dogs with the perfect adopters. Paisley needs someone who can commit to working with her high energy lifestyle. Meet and greets are arranged after applications are approved. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ More Info About Me: Basics: Weight - 35 lbs, Age - 1 year, 11 months ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TO ADOPT ME – FILL OUT AN APPLICATION TODAY!! http://bellasbullybuddies.org/bbb-webapp/adoptionApplication/index
