  • Mutt Dog For Adoption in Pittsburgh, PA, USA

    Katie

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier / Basenji (short coat). Katie is a lovely, loving and lovable young dog, With her striking, stand up ears, little wrinkles on her brow and her lithe, agile physique, we see some basenji. We also see terrier spirit and tenacity. Katie is all right with other dogs but wouldn't mind being an only dog. No cats though, she sees them as things to be chased and caught. Affectionate , playful Katie would thrive in a home with an active family, some older children and a nice fenced yard would be a plus. She's a youngster, just about a year old, ready and waiting to make a lifetime of memories with her forever family.

    Jimmy Joy

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Years ago there was a dog food commercial in which a woman apologized to her patient and understanding dog for unknowingly buying him an inferior brand of dog food. The tag line was "to err is human, to forgive, canine". Since then, that sentiment has appeared on innumerable posters, t-shirts, etc. Dog lovers know how true it is and no dog embodies that state of forgiving more than Jimmy Joy. He was rescued and brought to a WV shelter. At that time he was in even worse shape than in the attached photos.He was extremely weak and emaciated, he could barely stand. His ears had been hacked off and his body was covered in scars in various states of healing. Despite this Jimmy still loves and forgives us humans. He's appreciative of any kindness and responds with a happy "wiggle butt" to petting and loving. He is capable of not just forgiving, but of being joyful and sharing his happiness. Here's what the WV rescuer says about him: "Jimmy Joy is a Survivor. With his ears chopped off and scars scattered across his bodyand came to us almost starved to death. Some could wallow in self-pity but not this boy. A stray to our shelter, we are not sure how he escaped from his prior cruel life, but we do know that Jimmy Joy prefers to choose Joy for his future. We will make sure that no one takes that away from him again ! This delightful Pit bull Terrier boy is happy, pitifully grateful for any attention he gets, and has a flawless temperament with almost every living thing.. Jimmy Joy is experiencing plenty of love and the touch of kind human hands for the first time in his life, and he will happily crawl in your lap if given the opportunity. A[[roaching senior years, his vision is very diminished (not blind) due to cataracts, but he does not want your pity. He knows that his life could have been over, so Jimmy Joy intends to enjoy every minute on this wonderful earth and is hoping to find a person or family to share it with. If you want a companion guaranteed to make you appreciate life every single day, than Jimmy Joy. may be just the dog for you. " This WV shelter has limited adoption opportunities, especially for a slightly older guy like JJ. We want to pull him and bring him to our rescue and the safety of a foster or forever home. He's fine with other dogs and cats and a real lover boy with people. JJ Update : ) He's here ! JJ came to a foster home late last week. He's super friendly and loving with every person he meets. His foster mother has an 8 year old son, JJ is fine with him. She doesn't have a dog(s) but she has taken him to a dog park and to a pet store where he had his picture taken with the Easter Bunny. He was good with other dogs in those situations. She also says that he's had no accidents in the house, loves to go for walks and is good on leash. He has very limited vision, just sees light and shadows, but he compensates, as dogs will, with a good nose. JJ is a "comfort seeker". He's discovered that he loves soft beds and will pull blankets off a couch to cover himself.He still needs a forever home. His butt is always wiggling, tail is always wagging and his foster mother says "He's always smiling". Now he has something to smile about.

    Sebastian

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chocolate Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Sweet, Special, Spectacular Sebastian Needs The Just Right Home Sebastian is a very loving, smart and handsome young lab mix. As you will see in the message below, his foster family adores him. He would have a forever home with them in a heartbeat if he wasn't a danger to resident cat, Harley. Sebastian should be an only pet. And with his outsize personality, he's all the pet you could want. He also needs a securely fenced yard. A foster or forever home for Sebastian is desperately needed. Please email or call if you can help and please share. Thank you. Here's what his loving foster family says about Sebastian. SEBASTIAN is available for foster/adoption! We were able to get this sweet baby out of the shelter where he was not doing well at all and off of the list for possible euthanasia. We brought him home and learned a lot about him in just the few days we’ve had him! Here’s what you need to know before fostering or adopting: 1) He is an awesome SNUGGLE BUG ❤️❤️❤️! He LOVES to lay on you or beside you or at least having at least one body part touching 2) He sleeps well in a crate with a blanket pulled over to give him some quiet time 3) He knows some commands and is as smart as can be ! He is willing to please and willing to learn others. He knows “sit” and “paw”, and we are working on “stay” and “heal” 4) He is smiley and photogenic 5) Sebastian loves toys! He likes balls and toys that make noise. ⚽️. He can entertain himself with a variety. He even pays catch with himself! 6) He is a PEOPLE (not animal) dog! He absolutely ❤️LOVES❤️ being in the company of people. He thinks he’s a lap dog and loves to give kisses 7) He is potty trained! He hasn’t had one accident in the house. He makes a whimpering noise letting you know he has to potty He is about 2 years old, is 53 lbs, he is neutered and up to date on all of his shots ‍⚕️ OTHER THINGS TO KNOW: 1) Although this sweetie pie is a MAJOR SNUGGLE BUG with humans, he MUST be the ONLY animal in and around the house. He would be best off in an area where homes are not close by and definitely needs a fenced in yard. We are not sure what his beginnings were, but he can be aggressive with other animals. He seems to want to play but that’s NOT a consistent outcome XXXXXXX 2) Because Sebastian is not an “animal” pup and has been in a shelter with many animals all around, he is quite anxious right now . He would like to have as much of your attention as possible, at least for a little until he can settle in. He currently does not want you to be out of his sight. 3) Sebastian is STRONG ️‍♀️! A harness with is highly recommended for control, as well as a gentle leader. Again, if he sees an animal, he has a hard time containing himself. He will need your muscles to keep him at your side. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dog. He’s SO handsome and SO snuggly ❤️. Not having a background, we were certainly willing to give him a chance as a foster. However, having a cat, having two daughters with cats and a dog that visit frequently, and having woods behind us with many deer and other wildlife that frequent, along with living in close proximity to many neighbors with dogs and no fenced in yard, we realized quickly that we very unfortunately couldn’t be Sebastian’s furever home . I am so sad it’s not with us...but could it be with you? Please forward so Sebastian can find his perfect family ❤️. Please call/text if you have questions or want to visit! 412-480-5847. He is registered with Animal Advocates at 412-928-9777‬ . Thank you! Sebastian is a lab mix in need of foster or forever home. He is the most lovable, snuggly, handsome approximately two year old pup and he is utd on his vaccinations. He is very much a people pleaser. He knows several commands and responds well to positive reinforcement. He loves to play with toys, especially those that make noise. With that said, he has to be the only pet and must have a fenced in yard. He is extremely strong, and because we have deer and other animals that frequently go through our back yard woods, because our homes are close by each other and many have dogs, and because our yard isn’t fenced in, unfortunately our home isn’t the right environment for him. If you have the right environment for this sweet baby boy, he will make an awesome companion ❤️.

    Pretty Girl

    rescue
    Breed: Maltese
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Maltese / Shih Tzu (long coat). She's called Pretty Girl and the name suits her. Though it was hard to tell at first. All her doggy gorgeousness was hidden beneath a tangled coat that hadn't been groomed in some time (See before and after pics). PG gets along with other dogs and cats and loves people of all shapes, sizes and ages. Because of her small size we will not place her in a home with very young children who could inadvertently hurt her. Pretty girl is lively, loving and oh so lovable. She's ready to move in and steal your lap and your heart.

    Magnus

    rescue
    Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Beagle / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Magnus means "great" in Latin and he is a great little all around dog. Our Magnus is super people (including children) friendly and fine with other dogs. He wants to play with the cats in his foster home and since they are accustomed to living with dogs, they are okay with that. Some cats might not be so welcoming of Magnus's attention. Strikingly handsome with his ticking and dark markings accentuating his deep, soulful brown eyes, Magnus is active, curious and energetic. He would benefit from a securely fenced yard and a person or persons with the time and energy to share outdoor adventures and indoor cuddles, he's a big fan of both.

    Tally Ho !

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Hound / Beagle (short coat). Talbot aka Tally Ho is a friendly, handsome , young hound mix. Fully grown at 2 yrs of age, he weighs 35-40 lbs.Tally is taller and leggier than a beagle but not nearly as big as a coon hound. Active and playful, Tally enjoys the company and companionship of other dogs. Affectionate, fun loving Tally likes people of all sizes and ages too. Since he was found as a stray we don't know anything about his formative puppy time, so training and patience to help him become part of a household will be important for Tally. An established dog with good "pet skills" could be a valuable role model. A resident dog around his age and with a similar activity level would be a valuable playmate as well. With the notorious hound nose and sense of adventure Tally wouldn't hesitate to take off on his own for an adventure if the opportunity presented itself. He will need and appreciate plenty of leash walking and supervised outdoor exercise, a fenced yard would be a plus.

    Delilah

    rescue
    Breed: Boxweiler
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Beautiful Delilah is a healthy, energetic 4 year old. She loves every person she meets. However, due to her size and energy level we would not recommend her for a home with very young children or a frail elderly person. Delilah would thrive with an active person or couple with time for consistent exercise, training and shared adventures. Delilah would do best as an only dog where she has the opportunity to return, with interest, all the love, care and attention her person or people give to her.
