Calm, loving, friendly with people. We took him in because he was escaping the previous owner's backyard and he would hunt their neighbor's chickens, turkeys.. etc... and they we considering putting him down, so we brought him with us to the city. We feel it has been an inadequate setting for Bruno. He's a hunter that needs adequate space and freedom. He catches big field mice from our backyard, which is a plus. :) Before Bruno came, we already had a boxer dog and when they were introduced, they were fine. They have gotten into a couple fights, and we purchased personal training sessions for Bruno, which helped a lot, but we couldn't afford to continue the training. We feel he deserves a better environment and more time and training than we been able to give him. Please consider a donation to PBRC.

More About American Pit Bull Terrier 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.

Very sweet boy, needs rescue to pull for skin issues and to fix entropian 142 lbs. If you have questions or would like to meet the dog featured on this page, please call (216) 664-3476 to speak to an adoption representative at CITY DOGS Cleveland. Or email citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us About Our Shelter... CITY DOGS Cleveland is a program of Cleveland Animal Care & Control (CACC), located at 2690 W. 7th St. Cleveland, OH 44113. Public hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am-3pm, and Sunday 12-2pm. The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bulls who make up the majority of the kennel population, by preparing all adoptable dogs in the kennel for lives in loving homes and by creating as many opportunities as possible for the public to meet and get to know our dogs for the terrific pets they are meant to be. Our Adoption Process... Here's a little about how things work: All of the CITY DOGS posted for adoption are available for direct adoption from the kennel, unless noted otherwise. A handful of dogs are only available for rescue pull, which can be for a variety of reasons. You can either stop in during our open hours to meet a dog, or set up a meet and greet with your dog, which allows us to get the dog out of his/her cage for some exercise before you arrive. To set up a meet and greet, please email us at citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us. About Our Dogs: All available dogs have gone through the ASPCA SAFER Assessment. This assessment is a snapshot of who the dog is at that given time. Our dogs are strays and we cannot make any guarantees with regard to behavior, temperament or health of any City Dog. We do not know what kind of home environment they were living in (i.e. with kids, other dogs or other cats), nor do we know if they are house trained. Everything we know about them is based on volunteer and staff observations. It is very hard to tell with certainty whether or not a dog will be good with kids, cats or another dog. If you have kids in the home or another dog, we do require that they be present for a meet and greet with the dog you are considering for adoption. Heath/Vaccinations: Dogs that are adopted directly from the kennel need to go to your personal vet within a week or so of leaving the kennel. They do have their DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations, are dewormed once and have a microchip. In addition, unfortunately many of the dogs do get kennel cough. This is not something that is contagious to people at all, but dogs that do have it will need to be on an antibiotic.

He is happy to lay around all day or get up and move depending on your lifestyle. He gets along with other dogs well and plays gently with small dogs if needed. He (like most big dogs) thinks he is a lap dog or a blanket depending on the time of night but will move if asked. He needs a little training on patience when it comes to food but with how obedient he is I have no doubt that would be quick and easy to train him for. Please consider a donation to PBRC.

Bowie can be a big ball of energy or just a great snuggle buddy for a night on the couch. He loves to meet you at the door with his tail wagging to say hello! He loves to play with his toys and is great with kids, cats, and adults he's familiar with. He is a bit wary of strangers and other dogs though. Bowie currently has an autoimmune disease that affects joints, so he does require daily medication. These meds are affordable and easy to administer. A good home for Bowie would be: Someone who has been a dog owner before, preferably someone experienced with rescues A stable household without a constant flow of strangers and visitors Please consider a donation to PBRC.

She's a sweet girl and we have been working with her on socialization as well as integration with other dogs. Luna does NOT like cats. It would be easier for her in a home with no other pets but we are working with her on socialization so if someone is willing to work with her and make the introduction then she might be ok with other dogs. Originally Luna was in a home with a 1 year old and a 3 year year old. Both little girls loved Luna. The 1 year old would hand feed Luna and sometimes share a bite :D.
