Hank's Story...
"Hello, everybody! My name is HANK, and I'm a handsome American Staffordshire Terrier (a "Staffy") at the El Cajon Animal Shelter. I have the classic muscular and stocky build of a Staffy, so while I tend to discourage strangers from coming into my yard, I'm also a happy, good-natured, and loving fellow. I'm about five years old, so I'm over all of that puppy stuff, yet I'm still full of life. I enjoy going for walks, and I'll enjoy settling in to relax with my human companion. I'm sweet and obedient, and I'd be a great family pet in a home that has older kids. I also get along well with other dogs who are on the larger side. I'm a smart dog, and I know how to sit and shake on command. You really have to spend some time with me to appreciate my adorable qualities. I may look pretty tough on the outside, but inside you'll discover that I'm an affectionate and devoted friend for life. The shelter staff isn't sure yet if I've been house trained, so I might need some training in that department. I'm a smart guy who's eager to please, so I think I can figure things out pretty fast if you'll be kind enough to show me how. Won't you please come visit me soon? I'd love to have a new home and a new family as soon as possible. Love, Hank" Kennel #25

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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