Fawn's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Fawn's Story...
Fawn is as cute as her namesake! This sweet Bull Breed mix is about a year old and traveled all the way from North Carolina to find her forever home. She can be a little shy at first, but once she knows you she is a fireball of love and energy! Fawn is a very active dog and could also use some brushing up on basic manners and obedience. She does know how to lie down and sit, and will perform these commands with ease! She is learning not to jump, and how to sit calmly for attention instead. This girl is an amazingly quick study and is very receptive to learning; you can tell she has fun and really enjoys the challenge of learning something new. She will thrive in a home where she will be taught with lots of positive reinforcement, as even a loud voice is enough to scare her. Fawn is good with other dogs, and can be cat tested if necessary. She also does great with children once she knows them.

Considering all the amazing qualities she has, it's hard to believe she doesn't have her forever home yet. Unfortunately, Fawn does have two things holding her back. One, is that Fawn has hip dysplasia in both of her hips. Fawn currently gets along fantastically; You'd never know she has anything wrong the way she races around outside. However, as time goes on it will get worse if surgery is not performed. We are currently raising the money to get Fawn her surgery though! She would really love to recuperate in a foster or forever home rather than at the shelter. After her surgery she will be on strict cage rest until she's all healed up, which can scare some people away.

Fawn's other issue is that she bonds very closely with her people, and can become protective of them. She spent several months in a foster home with multiple children that she did fantastic with, and prior to that lived in a home with a man that she got along great with. However, Fawn does not do so well with strangers. She has to be kept crated whenever new people come over, as she thinks she needs to protect her people and her home. She will do best in a home with few visitors, and with someone who doesn't mind the little extra work it takes to manage her when people do come over.

We know Fawn is not an "easy" dog. However, we think she's beyond worth it! Fawn is one of the sweetest dogs ever once she knows you, and is so full of live and love that we just can't give up on her. Someone out there is looking for a dog just like Fawn, we just have to find them! If you think you'd be a good fit for Fawn (even just as a foster), or if you can not adopt but would like to donate to her care, feel free to call the shelter or check out our website for more info on her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fawn, a Broadway American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer for sale in Broadway, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Broadway.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Broadway 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 Broadway 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 American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Broadway paves the way for another one to be saved.
