Joe and Steve's Story...
Meet Steve and Joe! Their story is one of both heartache and happiness. Joe and Steve were found as strays, covered in wounds. They were brought to the shelter, separated, and left there for a rescue group to come save them. We heard about them and got down to the shelter to meet them immediately. Both were sweet, but very shy and also incredibly shut down. It was clear in their eyes how sad they were. They were also covered in fresh bite wounds, and it looked like they had been bait dogs (used as training for fighting dogs). Our hearts broke for these sweet boys and we made it our mission to save them and give them the life they deserved. Steve (the darker one) was so terrified we had to carry him out of the shelter. Joe did better but was still hesitant. We got them into their foster home filled with food, toys, and warm cozy beds. Immediately Joe wanted to curl in our laps. Steve gave us some kisses but kept his distance. They were SO excited to see each other again and immediately began kissing each other. They have not wanted to be separated since.

Joe and Steve are officially our favorite dogs. We have seen ZERO aggression from either of them. They want nothing more than to be loved, snuggled, played with, and have each others company. They are only a year and a half old, but we know they have been through a lot. Joe thinks hes a 2 pound lap dog, and will come nudge you for kisses and snuggles. Steve is learning to trust more and enjoys hanging out on the sofa with doggies and humans alike. They really enjoy playing with other dogs, and will spend hours in the morning wrestling and playing tug-o-war with other fosters in the home. This is followed by long naps! Our moody little terriers have been quite rude to them and they haven't minded one bit! They also like kids!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joe and Steve, a Lafayette 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 Lafayette, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Lafayette.

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