Dirk's Info...

I am not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Dirk's Story...
Name: Dirk
Color: Brindle and White
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix
Gender: Male
Age: 11 Months
Dirk is a highly active boy who still has a lot of rambunctious puppy behavior in him.
Big fan of: He loves people and other dogs, especially other bully breed types who love to rough house.
Special Features: Dirk will need a family with lots of time and patience, who will provide a structured schedule with lots of boundaries. He has a lot to learn as far as not jumping and mouthing people when he gets excited. He will need to be signed up for positive based obedience classes before his adoption can be finalized. Dirk is highly food motivated and should do well in obedience classes; he really needs it to learn acceptable behavior when engaging people.
Dream Home: He is not suitable for a home with children; he is just too rough when he plays. A home with cats would not be a good match either, as he is less likely to respect a cat's space.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dirk, a Bellingham 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 Bellingham, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham 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 Bellingham 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 Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
