Pirate's Story...
Meet Pirate, a 6-7 year old mellow American Staffordshire Terrier, who endured years and years of living on the street with lots of other dogs, and her two homeless companions, who at best were kind, but often neglectful, never abusive. This shows in her temperment. She loves all people, is gentle with children, loves going on walks, and is a great walker, enjoys car rides, or just hanging out with people. She is living at our kennel and plays in a pack of male and females, lots of other bullies, and does fine. She daughter Maya is also available. I personally cared for the whole family for many years as part of my Skid Row outreach. This was one of the dogs that I secretly hoped that I would get to come into the rescue one day, and then if happened. After years of healthy problems, her owner could no longer care for her, just didn't have the strength or will, so she did the kindest thing that she could for both Pirate and Maya, she said good bye to them, and gave them a chance for a much better life than being tied up to a chain link fence in the hot sun again this summer, or soaking wet in the pouring rain when the police made them all move from their shelter spot, Please consider giving this great girl a life of peace and quiet. She is one of the best dogs that we have ever rescued. Call us at 818-407-4145 or e-mail me directly at Lori@modernica.net our online application is at www.downtowndogrescue.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pirate, a Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
