Costello,smart & calm cutie!'s Story...
Meet the cutest and coolest bully boy- Costello! This lover of kids and fun is 5 years old and 65lbs.
He is the happiest and most playful boy who found myself at the shelter from no fault of his own just crappy first owners. Costello loves his daily walks with his people where he is patient and calm with all the other dogs in the neighborhood. He is smart, knows basic commands and loves to play fetch. He would enjoy the socialization and time with you in a training class to get everyone on the same page. Costello is also very content to hang out in the house at your feet. Costello has many doggie friends and is in foster care with dog siblings-but he can be a little choosy about his play partners. He’d be super happy to have you all to himself and he doesn’t share the same love of kitties. Costello foster family says he is a terrific dog, “easy to have around and we enjoy him so much. He is well house trained and has no problem staying inside for 12 hours when I`m at work. When he does need to go the bathroom he`ll go to the door and tell us. He loves to play fetch and does well on runs. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle even if sometimes he takes more than his share of the couch! He`s typically very quiet and the only time I`ve heard him bark was at an opossum in the backyard. Costello is so very friendly and is a lovable goofball that will make his new family very happy”. People-oriented Costello is a real pleaser and listens well to your direction and correction. He is crate-trained and house trained and neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated. VERY good with kids, Costello is calm and social and loves to go on auto adventures. He’s had the worst luck with his humans so far, but he doesn’t hold that against us. Costello is still hopeful that his real forever family will be right around the corner! Costello’s adoption fee is $250. For more information, please email Terry at or to apply to adopt or foster-to-adopt this “craving companionship”” Costello- please find an online application at (choose the adopt tab) and he’s ready and wanting to meet you now!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Costello,smart & calm cutie!, a Snohomish American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer for sale in Snohomish, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Snohomish.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Snohomish 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 Snohomish 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/Boxer breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Snohomish paves the way for another one to be saved.
