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.

      Princess Hat...

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Princess Hattie has endured much, dumped at 8 years old and in obvious pain at NYCACC, a scary place with awful sounds and smells. She has healed medically, is now ready for her forever home. Princess Hattie is up to date on shots, and good with people. She is not a fan of cats so she will need a home with none, and she would do best if she was in an only dog home. She can get along with other dogs, but she is selective and slow introduction method is best. She appears to do better if using the 'gentle leader' leash rather than the traditional leash when walking with her. If you would like to adopt Princess Hattie, please put your application in here: http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Chloe (formerly Jocelyn) is our beautiful 2-year old old lab mix who suffered a traumatic brain injury during her first few weeks of life. We've gone to great lengths for her and we hope you are willing to too! She is up to date on her shots, microchipped and spayed. Her sense of sight and smell are compromised and her hearing enhanced. Chloe is loving and fun, but preferably needs a home with retired or stay-at-homes, experienced with traumatic brain injuries or special education would be great. Chloe has meal time frustration anxiety and prefers eating alone, knowing her morsels are hers alone. A home where she can her settle in before introductions to other pets would be great, but she may do best in a home without other dogs..cats are okay. A home with a fenced yard would be best..Chloe LOVES to run...free like the wind. A home where a potty accident can be cleaned up and she can continue to learn that potty time outdoors reaps treats and indoors doesn't! We have faith she CAN do this, so should you!! A home where anti-seizure medications are lovingly administered and seizures patiently guided through. As much as she needs all this and more WE need this too because though none of us fit the criteria, we all love her. If you would like to adopt Chloe, please put your application in here: http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.

      Susie Q

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Hound / Mixed. SusiQ is currently located in the 03773 area code. She is up to date on shots and good with all people and other dogs. She is most certainly a hound-mix, she loves her walks and scenting her way thru the woods. She rarely barks, but when she hears the coyotes in the distance at night, will occasionally join in The Big Aroo. Susie Q is a country girl at heart, the city life is too overwhelming for her so a country home in a rural setting would be best. Susie is allergic to cigarette smoke so a non smoking home is a must. She is a humorous girl, a little bit in her own world, and happy to join in on any adventure or car trip you may be heading out for. SusiQ came into Rescue having great difficulty with Trust. But as she has grown to trust her foster mom, she is more bold approaching people in public, and trusting that they will treat her as her foster mom does. If you would like to adopt Susie Q, please put your application in here: http://www.rescuedogsrocknyc.org
