Viper's Story...
I'm Viper and I'm 55 pounds of F-U-N! Don't let my tough name fool you, I'm as silly as can be and a big wiggly love muffin who loves hugs. I'm a very handsome two-year old American Staffordshire/Boxer mix who has been sitting in a shelter since March. Crazy, I know! My most favorite thing to do is to play with other dogs. I've never met one I didn't love. Though I've learned basic obedience by participating in a training program at a prison, I had more fun playing with the guys than learning skills so my foster mom is working hard to get me to follow commands and I'm doing really well with that. Having rules and clear expectations to follow makes life so easy for me and helps me to be a gentleman. I'm also stellar on a leash, especially when I wear my gentle leader harness. My perfect family would be an active family with another dog sibling or two and maybe some older children since I love and play hard. If they had a big fenced-in backyard where I can race around (even though I'm not very fast!), that would be great, too. I'd especially love it if they took me to an obedience class or two to help me continue to work on my skills. If I already didn't sound awesome enough, I'm potty trained, crate trained, have a clean bill of health, am fully vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. My adoption fee is $200. If you think I might be your best dog ever, email rescueofhope@gmail.com for an application. I can't wait to meet you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Viper, a Grand Rapids 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 Grand Rapids, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Grand Rapids.

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