Wilbur's Story...
Please note – we prefer to adopt puppies to CT residents ONLY due to vetting obligations. We appreciate your understanding.

Hi everyone! I'm Wilber. I’m a 5.5(ish) month old pitbull mix and I’m told I am a complete love! My foster parents say they’ve checked and there is not a mean bone in my body – FD calls me his big goofball. I live with 3 other dogs and I LOVE them. I’m still kind of new in rescue so I’m learning about things called “manners” and “boundaries.” Like, did you know it was frowned upon to walk on the coffee table to get from one side of the living room to the other? I take correction well though, and I’m a smart boy. I learned to sit in just one night (the treats helped!). I'm also working hard on my housetraining. I really love to cuddle at night and honestly, I need to be woken up in the morning. Why would you want to get out of a warm bed willingly? I’m told I’m in the running for sweetest boy ever and that I’d be great in just about any kind of family – I love dogs and kids! The only thing is, I might be better off in a house than an apartment. You see, even though I’m good in my crate, I don’t really like when my foster parents leave, and I can be a little loud about it. I just love people! Can you blame me?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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