Chester's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Chester's Story...
Chester was found tied to a tree abandoned in the Whittier area. He wound up at the Downey pound where his staring at people got him labled as aggressive. Professional evaluation by a trainer and a veterinarian showed him to be malnourished, uninterested in dogs and non-aggressive to humans, but suffering from kennel cough, a painful ear infection and skin infection. Several interactions with caged cats showed him to be disinterested in them. The person who took him to the pound said he was good with her kids. He really is only interested in human interaction, food and being loved and caressed. He has a calm, confident demeanor.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chester, a Marina del Rey American Staffordshire Terrier/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Shar Pei for sale in Marina del Rey, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Marina del Rey.

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