Chance's Story...
This bright-eyed and hopeful boy is Chance, a pit/boxer mix that is barely two years old and really deserves a chance at a great life. Chance came from a downright awful home and he is so happy to be safe and cared for now. Our animal control officer was called out one night to remove Chance from the home because he bit his owner. We later found out that the reason Chance bit was because he was being beaten every single day of his life in order to make him "tough". Chance had every right to defend himself and we certainly don't hold it against him. He was a bit leery of new people when he arrived, and understandably so, but once he got to know everyone, he made lots of new friends and is now loving life! Those beatings didn't succeed in toughening up Chance at all because his caretaker describes him as being a "marshmallow". All he wants to do is play and get attention. He craves human interaction and just wants people to treat him with kindness and respect. Chance is a strong boy that could use some training with walking on a leash, but he is very well behaved otherwise and will sit perfectly when asked. He is also very gentle with taking toys and treats. Chance will need a home with no cats but seems ok with dogs his own size. If you can give Chance the loving, safe home that he deserves, please come in and meet this sweet boy. File#25774 11/20/15

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chance, a Forked River American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer for sale in Forked River, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Forked River.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Forked River 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 Forked River 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 Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Forked River paves the way for another one to be saved.
