Rock's Story...
This super handsome boy is Rock.(All tan) He was rescued from a high kill shelter along with 2 of his friends. Unfortunately for Rock and his 2 friends life wasn’t that great until they found themselves here at HVARS. Despite Rocks rough start at life he was rated “average” in the shelter and said to be able to be placed in any type of home. He is 2 years old, Great with other dogs and super friendly. He knows basic commands and walks on a leash. He is 2 years old weighs 62 LBS.
Here’s what a volunteer from the shelter had to say about him..

Hubba hubba hunk alert!!! With his magnificent head, thoughtful gaze and sleek caramel coat, Rock looks almost sculpted, as though he were some ancient figure long revered for his strength and wisdom. But there’s no need to be intimidated. This friendly guy is as down-to-earth as they come and welcomes everyone who stops by his door with a happy wagging tail and a twinkle in his eye. Rock arrived at the Care Center with his two sisters (or girlfriends, ooh la la!), Lady (A1024536) and Princess (A1024537) and all 3 dogs performed admirably during their behavior assessments, earning good ‘grades’ on everything from resource sharing to socializing. He’s an easy leash walker who seems quite house trained and he naturally meets other dogs with polite, amiable manners. Rock knows how to sit on command for treats or a toss of the ball, although once he has his prize ‘in hand’ that ball ain’t going anywhere! No one loves to mess about with tennis balls like Rock. His new parents will find themselves searching for some good, long-lasting chew toys as he can ‘skin’ a standard ball in record time–we go through two on just one date! Snuggles are much appreciated and he even gives hugs on demand: a total sweetheart. Life hasn’t been easy for Rock, but he’s not one to dwell on the past. With your help, his story can still have a happy, hopeful ending. Welcome this big boy with a big heart into your life and you’ll be Rocking around the clock for many happy years to come!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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