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.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Lexi is a very affectionate dog who is looking for a home of her very own. She is a beautiful, friendly girl who wants nothing more than to be in the company of her people. She is a little shadow, following you wherever you go. She is house and crate trained. She is a calm dog who enjoys snuggling up to you and just spending time with her people. One of her favorite activities is sunbathing, she spends many happy hours just sitting in the grass. Lexi unfortunately has bad hips and arthritis, so would do best in a home where there are not a lot of stairs to climb. Lexi is looking for a home where she can be the only pet, this lovely dog enjoys the company of people best of all and does not want to share the love.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Eddie is a little guy and absolutely adores people, young or old. He will hang out with you on the couch for hours or happily go with you for a walk. He is a very affectionate and loves attention. Eddie is crate trained and house trained. He is great in the car (just lays down and sleeps) and loves to carry around and chew on his Nylabone. Eddie does not get along with cats. He can get along with calm submissive dogs but the perfect home for him would be a home without other animals. Eddie has no medical issues and is a healthy senior. Eddie would be best in a quiet home where he feels safe, where he can lay beside your feet while you are working on the computer or hang out with you while you are doing yard work. We do not know what happened to Eddie but he startles very easily and goes into protective mode. For these reasons we recommend that he is not placed in a home with children. We sincerely hope that someone will be able to see what a wonderful personality he has and that someone will offer him a home for his golden years. Please email his foster mom at silvia.bprs@gmail.com for more information.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. When you meet Mary Poppins you cannot help but smile. Her gentle demeanor, her inquisitive eyes and her cute ears that are always up will brigthen your day. Once Mary Poppins meets you and approves of you, which does not take long because she pretty much loves everybody, she will want to make herself comfortable in your lap. It is quite easy to fall in love with her. - Mary Poppins adores people and absolutely loves children. - She is a dream on a leash and a great passenger on car rides. - Mary Poppins is housebroken, crate trained and gets along well with other dogs. - She loves going on walks and prances proudly beside you, showing off her never-ending tail wiggles. Mary Poppins does not care for cats (although she is non-reactive to the barn cat in her foster home). She also does not care too much for small, hyper dogs so a home without both would be best for her. Other than that she truly is just about the perfect dog and she would make a wonderful addition to any family.

He enjoys being in the company of his 'humans' and really enjoys a good game of tug-of-war as well as extended cuddle sessions on the couch. Gatsby is house and crate trained and rides really well in the car. Gatsby is a little bit too interested in cats, so we recommend a home without them.

He is housebroken and crate trained but needs to be able to go potty every 4 hours. Pepper really enjoys going for walks and walks well on a leash. Pepper has lived with children and gets along great with cats. Pepper had eye surgery to correct Eyelid Entropion in both of his eyes. His eye sight is much improved and he is a lot happier now. Pepper will do anything for a treat and food. This little guy loves his food and will let you know when it is time for dinner. Pepper would love to live in a quiet home with someone who has time to take him on daily walks. Pepper is very protective of his food so we recommend a home without any other dogs. With his ears being always up and a happy grin on his face, this sweet dog has so much joy to give and would be a wonderful companion for life.

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. September 9th, 2017 Joy came to us with a Texas Disaster Relief transport from Houston. Her tail was missing and we were told that she had been in an accident. Due to the severity of her injuries it required the tail to be amputated. Her left leg and shoulder were injured as well but nobody had the finances to fix this problem. After being examined by our vet it became clear that her tail was severed from her spine and that the leg/shoulder injury had been growing together wrong. It was not fixable and the only way to help ease her pain was to get her leg amputated. Fast forward - spring 2018 Joy's leg was taken off successfully, she is in no more pain and running around on her 3 legs faster than when she had 4 legs. WIN / WIN !!!! So what do we know about Joy? What a good girl she is: - Joy is super sweet and loves to cuddle with you on the couch - Joy gets along well with all people, young and old - Joy is house and crate trained (due to her injuries she will need access to go potty on a regular basis) - Joy loves going on walks and car rides - Joy knows basic commands - Joy loves her treats and responds well to training - Joy does well with other calm and submissive dogs - Joy loves her Nylabone and is not distructive (i.e. tearing up blankets etc.) What needs work: - Joy chases cars (even when she is riding in the car so she needs to be crated so she can't look out the window) - Joy pulls on the leash and will need leash training - Joy can get super excited ,hence a family with a calm/submissive dog would be best. Please consider giving this sweet girl a home. She has been through a lot and will be your best friend forever.

She would do well with a submissive male, but would do best in a single dog household or with someone that is experienced in dealing with separating dogs at feeding times due to food aggression. She has not been introduced to cats. She adores children and is very gentle with them. Grace is spayed and up to date on vaccinations and does great on car rides. Grace loves to run around the backyard and play. She also likes to snuggle by the fire. The best of both worlds active and calm! Grace is very smart and knows sit, paw, and stay. She could benefit from some reinforcement training. Grace is a great dog and loves kids and people! She would love to meet you.
