Poe's Story...
COURTESY POST - CONTACT LYNN4DOG@AOL.COM

Poe's life so far has been a little chaotic but things are looking up now! And he is SO READY to have a loving, forever home! He is a almost fully grown youngster of about 1 years old and about 55 lbs.

Poe was the companion of a homeless couple. He was hit by a car, severely injured his front leg. He was very fortunate to be helped by a wonderful woman who dedicates her time to helping the companion animals of the homeless.

She paid to have surgery done to repair his leg. He rehabbed at vet clinic for over a month. Ath this point, his former human companions decided they no longer wanted him. Poe ended up at Front St. shelter in Sacramento. His guardian angel found out he was there and called the vet clinic to see how he was doing and if any of the techs caring for him might be interested in adopting him.

After awhile, the vets & the shelter decided that Poe's best chance for a long, healthy, active life was to amputate the leg that just wouldn't heal and function well. She felt his leg should be amputated as it was not doing well. (Shelter agreed.) His guardian angel stepped in again and paid for the second surgery and helped out with food and other needs.

Poe is neutered and current on all his vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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