Gere's Story...
**Gere's adoption fee has been paid by a generous donor! (All other adoption criteria still apply).**

Introducing BACS newest sensational senior...Gere! This 10 year old fellow is as loveable as they come, delighting in the company of both people and dogs.

Sure, he's got bit of frosting on his muzzle, but that just makes this cookie a bit more sweet! And don't let his age fool you, if this guy was living at a retirement home, he'd be on the shuffleboard court all morning, and hitting on the ladies all afternoon. He loves to get out and about on walks, and is no slowpoke when out on the trail. While he can overheat a bit when it's warm, he is so happy to be out soaking up the sun and sniffing all the amazing smells of the world. He attends BAD RAP training classes because like any smart fellow, Gere knows that you never stop learning and he is keen to brush up on his loose leash walking and basic commands. He is already an ace at "sit" and will take treats quite gently from your hand. He is currently receiving some medication for his eyes and accepts his ointment patiently and without complaint--such a gentleman!


Gere is a star in our big dogs play group. Not so much racing and wrestling with the other dogs, but rather delighting in their company as he flits and flirts from one canine pal to another, working the room like a social butterfly. Rumor has it he was a hit with our small dogs as well! Gere would love to spend his golden years with a loving family--could you be the one? **And wait, there's more...Gere's adoption fee has already been pre-paid by his fan club!**

Act quickly to adopt Gere. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gere, a Berkeley 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 Berkeley, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

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