Dougie's Story...
Hi! My name is Dougie. I'm a bit of a local celebrity...you might have seen me on CBS Boston's Pet Parade (http://boston.cbslocal.com/2014/02/09/pet-parade-broken-tail-rescue-in-worcester/)

I'm just the sweetest, gentlest boy you'll ever meet. In fact, my foster mom thinks I'm an ambassador for my breed because I'm just pure love :) While I'm just under 50 lbs, I still think I'm a lapdog and will take any opportunity to snuggle with you. Just the other day, my foster mom introduced me to her mom and I jumped right up into her rocking chair to snuggle...it was wonderful ;)

Right now, I am really enjoying indoor comforts. A warm bed, full meals, and a cuddle buddy are a significant improvement from the situation I was rescued from...someone left me tied to a door in Somerville :( Despite such a rocky start, my sunny personality continues to shine. I guess you could say I am an optimist. I just know that my perfect family is out there and we'll find each other soon!

At 8-9 months, I am still young so I have lots of energy and enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. At the dog park, I make fast friends. In fact, I tend to be on the submissive side so if a little dog wants to boss me around for a while, I'm okay with that. I really just want everyone to get along!

Outside of the park, I love to go hiking and am learning to run on-leash. When it comes to training, I'm all about the snacks. If you've got a tasty treat, you've got my full attention. Right now, I am perfecting my 'sit' and 'down' but I am looking forward to learning even more commands with your help!

Like many puppies, I am very curious about cats. I think I would like to chase them so it might be best if I live in a dog-only household.

Oh and did I mention how very handsome I am? I mean just look at those blue eyes ;)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dougie, a Worcester Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Worcester, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Worcester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Worcester already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Worcester breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Worcester paves the way for another one to be saved.
