Spice's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Spice's Story...
Spice was found on June 29th, 2014 running in the street at Lake Benbrook with his friend Sugar. They were not chipped. No collars. Neither had been spayed or neutered. And they were both heartworm positive. Spice has had some neurological issues. The vet suspects he may have an injury in his spine. He is not aggressive but can be reactive with more boisterous dogs. He spent a month in boarding and lost ten pounds due to stress. He was neglected and possibly abused before we found him. He was covered in motor oil. His teeth are ground down from possibly having a penchant for chewing rocks and other objects. The vet estimated his age to be around 4 years. He is very loving. Loves to play ball. And very eager to please his human. I believe with the right foster or adopter he could live a long happy life.

He has now been neutered, received his heartworm treatment, and is now heartworm negative. Spice is an affable, friendly little guy who wants a home where someone is there most of the time and he has another dog companion. He has very nice leash and car manners and he is eager to be your friend.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spice, a Irving 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 Irving, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Irving.

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