More About Staffordshire 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.

    • Zara - Terrier / Mixed Dog For Adoption

      Date listed: 04/28/2018

      Mutt Dog For Adoption in Tucson, AZ, USA

      Zara

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Zara is a "special" dog who will need a very special (patient and dog-savvy) adopter. Zara was found in the desert in really bad shape. In any other shelter she likely would have been put down immediately, but thanks to PACC and her dedicated foster, she was saved and is recovering nicely. However, it's apparent that Zara never knew humans or dogs before she was found, so she has a LONG way to go before she becomes a "normal" dog. Special Needs: Though Zara currently lives with other dogs and children, I would not consider her safe for public outings or with other dogs or children until she has been fully integrated into a new "pack" and received further training. She was severely unsocialized and will need a very patient, dog-savvy home that's willing to work on her long-term issues. She is terrified of leaving her "safe space", cannot walk on a leash, can be very awkward toward some humans, and may be unpredictably aggressive toward other animals. However, once comfortable and trained within her "pack" she has shown that she is capable of being loving, tolerant, and obedient. Please contact her foster family for more information. Our dog adoption fees range from $150-$240 depending on the dog's age, and our cat fees range from $45-120. They are all spayed/neutered, microchipped with lifetime registration, and have received age appropriate vaccines.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. Hi! My name is Ruth (at least it’s the one my foster mom gave me and I took to it immediately). I’m a young adult, and I’ve had a rough start in life. My original pack included a human and several other dogs, but unfortunately my human passed away and I was separated from everything I knew. I was very scared, but my foster mom saw past my fear and gave me a chance. I currently live with three other chihuahuas on a regular basis, but mom fosters and pet sits so I’ve been exposed to other dogs coming in and out of the house and I haven’t had a single complaint! I couldn’t tell you my opinion on big dogs or cats, but I hope to have one soon. I am a very timid girl, I adore my foster mom, and I’ll let her do anything to me as long as she doesn’t move too fast, otherwise I run away. I don’t like being locked in rooms away from my pack, but I’m happy in my crate in the living room where all my pack mates are, so I’m not alone alone. I adore my foster mom! (Did I say that already?) however, I’m still not so sure about other humans. If they’re in the house long enough, I’m willing to come around them, but I won’t let them touch me, unless mom holds me and makes me be social. Turns out, everyone just wants to love on me! I’ve still working on coming out of my shell, but I’ve come a long way already. Our dog adoption fees range from $150-$240 depending on the dog's age, and our cat fees range from $45-120.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Meet Caesar, a two year old male pitty who came to us from Texas. This handsome boy lived on a chain his entire life before the wonderful veterinarians from best friends found him. Caesar also has spina bifida, but he doesn’t let that slow him down. He is able to walk and run just like other dogs. He is incontinent, so it would be best for him to wear a diaper when inside in case he has an accident. He loves children, is great with other dogs, and has the best personality. Our dog adoption fees range from $150-$240 depending on the dog's age, and our cat fees range from $45-120.
