Henry's Story...
Henry was surrendered when his owners wanted to 'down-size' on the number and size of dogs they had. They bought him from a breeder AKC (Harpursville, NY) when he was a puppy and he has lived with a female Newfoundland all his life. He also lived with 3 children, the youngest being 4 years old. On the background sheet they said that he was great with their kids and they never had any problems with him. He is also housebroken. His vet did x-rays 10/18/2012, the notes say 'Based on the radiographs performed today Henry has bilateral hip dysplasia starting to develop. While he has well formed acetabuli and femoral heads, the femoral heads are not at all well seated in the acetabuli.' They prescribed Dasuquin Soft Chews once daily starting (10/18/2012) Our vet examined him (10/29/213) Her notes read: Extreme deformity of hocks. Per Vet - evidence of hip dysplasia @ very young age. Dog has trouble rising. Based on the radiographs performed today Henry has bilateral hip dysplasia starting to develop. While he has well formed acetabuli and femoral heads, the femoral heads are not at all well seated in the acetabuli. He is extremely sweet and needs a caring, loving home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Henry, a Pittsburgh St. Bernard dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a St. Bernard for sale in Pittsburgh, or seeking a St. Bernard dog from a breeder in Pittsburgh.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pittsburgh 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 Pittsburgh 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 St. Bernard breeders who help with St. Bernard rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pittsburgh paves the way for another one to be saved.
