America is sure to be your new best friend. This sweet girl is adorable in photos and even cuter in person—her freckles give her extra charm! America is a super social pup who counts playtime with her special people among her favorite activities and is very friendly with other dogs her size. The perfect dog park companion, she’d love to make a few canine friends!

America can feel a bit overwhelmed if approached in a small space or while chewing her favorite bone, but our Behavior Team can give you some tips for helping her adjust to new surroundings. America is looking for her forever family and would do best in an adults-only home with an adopter who has experience with larger dogs. Adopt America today!

America is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about America, please visit her page.

Someone needs to adopt this dog soon! No dog should be left homeless and abandoned. Please adopt her, ever animal deserves a home!






This dog is so adorable. If we could afford it, we would have a 2nd dog. Of course, my dog, Callie would be so jealous of another dog. We love her so much. We can't imagine how life would be without her. She brings such joy to our lives.

When she looks at you with her puppy eyes (she's almost 8) you just want to melt. Best thing we ever did was adopt her. Anyone who is considering getting a dog, stop considering and do it. You will find love and joy that you didn't know existed.


You're so pretty, dear America. You're a real gem. I want you to have a loving, caring, safe home very soon.


Animals are so awesome. America you are one beauty. Hope you find a forever loving home soon. God bless you and the people who adopt you. Adopt don`t shop.
