  • American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Armonk, NY, USA

    Leo

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Adopt-A-Dog Shelter (adoptionsadoptadog), (914) 273-1674 for more information about this pet. Meet Leo! On a cold day in March of 2014 a Good Samaritan stopped their car on the side of a highway and opened their side door. In jumped a scared, skinny and exhausted stray who was relieved to be away from the dangers of the highway. His rescuer didn’t know what this dog had been through or how long he had been out on his own, but she could tell he hadn’t been treated kindly. She brought him to the vet where she found he was only 8 months old, very underweight, but still sweet and affectionate with everyone he met. She decided to name this resilient soul a courageous name that would fit his spirit, and settled on “Leo.” When Leo arrived at Adopt-A-Dog just a few days later he became an immediate staff favorite. Everyone was amazed by how smart he was and how fast he learned new things and we were sure he would be adopted quickly. No one could have predicted that three YEARS later, Leo would still be with us, now as our longest resident at the shelter. Four years is a long and exhausting time for a shelter dog, but for Leo he has taken it all in stride. After all, our shelter may be the nicest place he has ever been able to call “home.” In his time with us he has remained a staff and volunteer favorite, aced his obedience training, and even gone on some adventures! He loves to swim, go for long car rides, and go jogging or hiking with a pal. He is very well behaved around other dogs but due to being undersocialized, Leo does best as the only pet. This sweet, athletic, intelligent, handsome, incredible dog has been waiting so long for a home and no dog is more deserving, since Leo may never have had a place to call home in his whole life. Let’s make 2019 the year that he finally finds a soft place to lay his head and truly relax.

    Kirk

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Meet Kirk! Captain Kirk's life has been quite an adventure. We are not sure what his younger life was like, but when he was about 2 years old he ended up at the Yonkers Animal Shelter. There he was adored by staff and volunteers alike and was well cared for. After some time there he still had not found a home and the volunteers put their heads together to come up with a plan to get him adopted. They decided to raise money and send him to a trainer, hoping that once he was fully trained, a family would want to take him home! They raised the money and drove him to a trainer who had worked wonders with one of their previous dogs. They gave him lots of love as they said goodbye and they wished him well and good luck in finding a loving home. They assumed that while in training he would be loved and well cared for and they trusted that the trainer would be able to teach him all the skills needed to be the perfect family pet. Two years later the volunteers were told the trainer decided Kirk was unfit for adoption and they planned to euthanize him. The volunteers were confused, how could the sweet and lovable dog they knew be unfit for adoption? They decided they would not let him be euthanize and they asked Adopt-A-Dog to go see what was going on with Kirk. As soon as we saw the condition Kirk was in, we knew we had to help him. The trainer that was supposed to love and care for him had become ill and was not able to give Kirk the care he needed. Instead, they kept him in an outdoor yard where he received very little human interaction or affection. He was infested with fleas and developed flea dermatitis, losing a large amount of his hair, and went untreated for a very long time. The trainer ever admitted that one of his techniques for correction was to hit Kirk repeatedly with a cane. After several hours, we were able to convince them not to euthanize Kirk, and instead to give him to us. We have spent the past three months treating Kirk physically in addition to building his spirit back up. We believe he is now truly ready for a loving family to give him a happily ever after! He is not good with other animals, however he is in a training program with us to manage this behavior. Any family that is interested in adopting him, and receiving all the love, kisses and devotion he has saved up, will be given free training instruction for his life upon adoption. We want to make sure where Kirk goes next on his adventure, he gets everything he deserves and never has to know abuse or shelter life again.

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Rottweiler / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Adopt-A-Dog Shelter (adoptions@adoptadog.org), (914) 273-1674 for more information about this pet. Meet Roxie! Roxie is a lovable girl who enjoys doing anything and everything! She has lived a very sheltered life, but she is excited to explore everything the world has to offer with a new family! Roxie was a puppy bought from a backyard breeder to a family that had never owned a dog before. They didn't know much about caring for a dog. They did not exercise, play with, train, or even feed her properly, so when she arrived at Adopt-A-Dog she was skinny, full of pent up energy, and very jumpy. She didn't even know how to play with toys! In just a few weeks of consistent training, Roxie is already showing a huge improvement in her behavior! She is not jumping as much and is taking very well to basic obedience training. She is still working on learning to walk better on leash, but we have even seen improvement with that as well! She has learned how to play with toys and now gets regular exercise which helps her to relax throughout the rest of the day! Roxie would do best in an adult only home being the only pet.

    Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pharaoh Hound / Mixed (short coat). Meet Lando! Lando is a one-in-a-million dog. He is stunning and has the personality to back up the good looks! He unfortunately has not be treated as he deserves for most of his young life. He ended up as a stray and was brought to a city shelter where he stayed for way too long of a time. His time in that shelter led to bad habits and him having a difficult time connecting with new people. Since arriving at Adopt-A-Dog, we have seen a nice change in Lando's personality and sociability with new people. He now is always ready to give a kiss and get a hug!

    Posted Breed: Mastiff / Mixed (short coat). Meet Negan! It’s a common trend to compare our dogs to either ourselves, celebrities or people we know. When it comes to Negan, it’s not too much of a stretch to conjure the image of a popular jock. If Negan was in high school, he would play about 4 sports and be great at all of them. To add to this mental image, Negan is a big guy who hasn’t realized that he’s not a puppy anymore (imagine a lot of tripping over his own paws in the yard). Negan is dog, cat, and even bird-friendly and has a heart of pure gold. To his friends, both human and canine, Negan is overtly affectionate and sometimes slobbery in his attentions. Negan has been learning and excelling at our in-shelter training program since he arrived on our doorstep and has definitely disproved the “dumb jock” stereotype with his progress. A perfect day for Negan would be to wake up and have a playdate with one of his friends (preferably his partner-in-crime Wally), followed by a long car ride and followed by going to sleep in a cozy bed with a tasty bone waiting for him.

    Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Adopt-A-Dog Shelter (adoptions@adoptadog.org), (914) 273-1674 for more information about this pet. Meet Winston! Winston has been through a lot in his life and is so deserving of a forever home! We found Winston at a local municipal shelter where he had been living for months. He rarely got out of his kennel, and was not socialized with many new people. We decided to bring him to our shelter to try to give him a better quality of life while he waits for his perfect home to come along. Winston is incredibly loyal and loving to people he trusts, but it takes some time for him to build trust with a new person. He is definitely worth the effort because once he loves someone it is for life! There is nothing this boy loves more than to sit at the feet of his person and just relax in their presence. Winnie has been through strict obedience training and has excelled in the routine of training. He also thoroughly enjoys agility training and taking long walks. Whoever adopts this boy will need to have the dedication to commit to bonding with him and continuing his training so he can be the best dog he can be for the rest of his long and happy life. In a perfect world, he be the only pet in an adult only home, but he does have the potential to live with another easy-going female dog.

    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Border Collie (long coat). Next time you see her, Harley will be accepting the gold medal in agility at the summer Olympics! Harley is incredibly fast and limber, and has been showing us just how good she is at many basic agility skills. Coupled with her gorgeous looks, Harley is quite the addition for a family looking for an active dog. We originally met Harley back in Ohio, where we then pulled her into our shelter from a shelter up there. She was quickly adopted from our shelter, but due to extenuating circumstances she was returned to us a few months ago. Being in a kennel environment is unnatural for any dog, but especially for one that had been adopted out so recently. Harley also prefers to not be around other dogs (0r cats!) so the kennel is particularly stressful for her. Since her return, we have been trying to enrich her day-to-day by incorporating some agility training and she is excelling at it. Harley is incredibly playful and friendly, so the more chances she gets to strut her stuff, the better! Harley is looking to loop her way into your heart-please fill out an online application below if you are interested in adopting!

Sweet Ella is one amazing girl. We brought her in from Yonkers Animal Shelter where we quickly fell in love with her sweet nature. Ella prefers to be the only pet but she wants to be around as many people as possible. Due to kennel stress in Yonkers she was hurting herself and we need that Ella needed out as soon as possible. Once coming to us she was diagnosed with Mammary Carcinoma Grade 1 tumors which we had them get removed. Ella has quickly recovered and is now ready to become apart of a family like she truly deserves. Ella is an activate girl that loves a good game of fetch! A belly rub and a tennis ball is all you need to supply for her to fall deeply in love!

    Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Adopt-A-Dog Shelter (adoptions@adoptadog.org), (914) 273-1674 for more information about this pet. Meet Parker! Parker came to us from North Carolina during the summer and we were so excited to find this awesome dog a his forever home. We quickly noticed how much fun he was and loved getting him together with a few other dogs and watch Parker run circles around them. He loves to play fetch and like a true cattle dog can easily keep up on a really nice hike or run! We quickly adopted him out to a fantastic family that opened up their home and hearts to this beautiful boy. Once he was settled in they noticed some behaviors they needed help with so we quickly stepped in to help train Parker. After a few months of training we had to come to the tough decision that Parker was just not the right fit for this great family. While he was great with them for most of their time together, Parker is socially dominant. We believe he would be a great dog for a family without young children and who are open to learning the training we offer to make sure Parker can live the happiest life possible. Parker is house broken, crate trained, and very dog friendly. We have prepared Parker with the training needed and now we are looking for a family to take the tools we offer to continue his journey into becoming a great doggie citizen!

    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Meet Diamond! Diamond is the girl with a 40-karat smile that lights up any room or yard she is in. She is a mega-watt cutie who hasn't let a single challenge dim that irresistible smile. Diamond would make a valuable companion for an active family that can (try to) keep up with her! Miss Diamond has had a turbulent past year; her former owner was unable to keep her and reached out to Adopt-A-Dog to try and re-home her. This resilient pup quickly settled in at our shelter, and started revealing the quirky personality underneath. Some of Diamond's favorite activities are: leaves, chin scratches and playing fetch. She is completely house-trained, and is now just looking for a family to take her on runs and who will always have a ball ready to play fetch. This Diamond in the rough deserves a soft bed and pile of tennis balls to call her own. Fill out an application below if you are interested in bringing her home!
