Nichole (Figgy)'s Story...
This beautiful girl was picked up as a stray in Orangeburg, SC earlier this year. She was found scavaging for food behind a McDonald's with a prolapsed uterus. These dogs are overbred, usually for drug money and usually starting with their first heat, and then discarded when they are no longer of any use. Sinbad Sadie Second Chance Rescue rescued her, named her Nicole, and paid for her medical treatment (spaying and an ensuing infection). She then went into foster care and later boarding. I got her for a weekend in the middle of April for a respite from boarding, and à la the three hour tour from Gilligan's Island, I still have her. I renamed her Figgy, well, because she just is.
Figgy Pros:
•She loves everyone. Black, white, straight, gay, old, young. Everyone.
•She is super affectionate. She loves to give lots of kisses and cuddle on the sofa. (She loves to be read short stories. Hemingway is her favorite author.)
•She knows basic commands and walks well on a leash.
•She is fine with cats but will want to chase them when they run. She will scream like she's being murdered when they chase her.
Figgy Not so Pros:
•She is not completely house trained. But we're working on it.
•She gets very excited over things on walks; butterflies, squirrels, turtles, but especially other dogs. We are working on the dog excitement. She just finished six weeks of training with the Dog Whisperer, James Beltram, and is doing much better.
•She loves to play with other dogs but can play a bit too rough. She would do great with an alpha dog her size or bigger.
Figgy Eccentricities:
•She sounds like a helicopter when she is smelling things.
•She will snort and jump backwards at anything that scares her.
•She needs a 12 step program for her sock addiction. Seriously, it's bad.
•She eats sticks.
•She sees fairies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nichole (Figgy), a Summerville 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 Summerville, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Summerville.

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