Handsome's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Handsome's Story...
Handsome has been in our foster care since January 10, 2016 when he was found roaming the streets in the frigid cold and rain. A local police officer was following him, he told one of our volunteers he was going to take him to the pound. Our volunteer intervened and told the officer we would care for him until an owner could be located. We searched everywhere for an owner but had no luck.
Handsome is between 3-5 years old and is a red nose Pitty. He is a well behaved boy, and someone at some point took time with him as he is house trained and knows basic commands. He is also great on a leash, in the car, and at the vets.
He has recently healed from his neuter, has been vaccinated, and is heart worm negative.
We have been working on integrating him into our foster home with other animals but it has not gone in Handsome's favor. The oldest dog in the foster home is not taking well to him and we believe it is sensory overload for Handsome between all the cats and 4 other dogs in the home.
He has been staying in a spare bedroom of the home and this is only temporary until a forever home can be found.
Handsome is going to be best suited as the king of his castle, preferably in an active home where someone has the time to spend with him, take him for long walks, and provide a comfy place to rest his head at night.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Handsome, a Elyria 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 Elyria, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Elyria.

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