Debo's Info...

I am up to date with shots and good with kids.

Debo's Story...
Why Choose me?
I first saw Debo just a few minutes after he arrived, and he was leaning against an animal control staffer’s legs, half sliding towards the floor to assume the belly rub position – hint hint! About 30 minutes later we took Debo out for pictures and video and he was still angling for belly rubs. We were starting to wonder if we would ever get him to stand up long enough for a picture! But then another volunteer brought Mazie into the adjoining pen, and Debo jumped right up for some fun time. Mazie was a little intimidated by his size and boisterousness, but Debo won her over with pure goofy-ness, and they started playbowing and running along the fence together. Debo is a strong, beefy looking boy, but surprisingly easy to walk on leash. He’s here because his owner is moving and can’t take him, but said that Debo is up-to-date on shots, lives outside but can hangs out inside with incident and has been fine around young children. He hasn’t lived with other dogs, but was fine when a small dog who came to visit. Debo is about a year and a half old so he’s still got a happy puppy brain in that big body – which makes him a very entertaining guy!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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