Dorothy Roy's Story...
Hi there! My name is Dorothy Roy and I am looking for a home to call my own! I am a very sweet girl. I love giving kisses. I'm also pretty smart. I know sit and come. I even catch treats. I am very athletic and very talented. I love to play fetch with the ball. I enjoy walks and runs. I enjoy playing with dog toys and being with people. I am fun, funny and friendly. I have an active, energetic personality. I prefer a forever home without small children or small dogs. And I would like to find a home where I will receive additional training. I want to know all the great things that every dog should know. Adoption fee: $75. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue.

TO ADOPT: if you have a fenced yard, call Shannon with MPEP at 586-530-7511.

Or, fenced yard or not, apply online: www.pawsforliferescue.org. Complete the adoption/foster application and a volunteer will contact you to answer questions and to schedule a meet-n-greet.

VISIT: Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center, 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills any time the shelter is open, Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. or Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dorothy Roy, a Troy Labrador Retriever/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Troy, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Troy.

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