Ask anyone who’s adopted a dog – especially a pit bull type dog – and they’ll tell you: there’s nothing more rewarding. And there’s nothing more important right now, with CNY shelters at full capacity. Your choice to adopt literally saves a dog’s life, while bringing more fun, energy, and joy into your life. Of course, we hope you’ll explore opening your home to a pit bull type dog by getting the facts about these wonderful, family-friendly pets! We also recommend adopting an adult dog for the following reasons:
- Adult dogs have fully formed personalities, empowering you to choose a dog that fits your lifestyle
- Shelters and rescues temperament test adult dogs, so you know what to expect behaviorally
- Adult dogs are often overlooked in favor of puppies, and are at a higher risk of being euthanized
- Yes, you CAN teach an older dog new tricks AND manners, just ask our recommended trainers
- Adult dogs know they’re being rescued, showing gratitude and love on a scale you wouldn’t believe!
We are not a rescue, but we have gathered all local shelters and rescues, right here. What are you waiting for? Your new best friend is waiting for YOU!
