Onyx's Story...
This is a write up by our foster Tammy Foster did on Onyx.

This is our Onyx from AC about 4 years ago. She was paralyzed with fear so she appeared aggressive to some. And, of course being a Pit she was never adopted. Kris and Brooke kept working with her and saw the goodness in her and asked us to foster. Within a day she was running around with my stupids having a blast!!!!! She was adopted to a great couple who spent a lot of time with her and adored her despite her lack of trust. Unfortunately the couple separated and the woman's living situation is such that she can't have pets:(

So we picked her up yesterday and will wait for her to find the right home. She has come out of her shell tremendously!!!! She still trusts when she's ready but she is a dear, sweet, beautiful, loving, smart girl with all the great qualities of a Pit!!!! We just adore her and are glad to have her back!! This picture makes her look huge, she's really very tiny😊

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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