Poco's Story...
Poco, a beautiful SUPER SWEET Flashy Bully Breed, approximately three years old, was dumped on a dirt road. Poco is very grateful he has gotten a new chance at life. He has had a tough few years. He found himself in another county shelter in Georgia a few years ago, after being dumped on a dirt road where he was adopted and microchipped. Sadly, that owner chose to rehome him and approximately a week after they did so, Poco was found dumped AGAIN on another rural dirt road. The previous owner was contacted but they stated they moved and couldn't keep him and that they did not know the person they allowed to adopt and dump the dog they promised to love and protect from harm. Poco has fully recovered from heartworms which was discovered after a trip to vet, is fully vetted, 55 pounds, and eagerly awaits his new forever family. He has a lot of energy and is super sweet. Due to his high-energy level, he will do best in a home with adults and big kids. He loves playing with dogs. He should not live with cats.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Poco, a Gillsville American Staffordshire Terrier/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/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Gillsville, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Gillsville.

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