Patriot's Story...
::COURTESY POSTING:: Patriot is being fostered in a private home unaffiliated with Chako Pit Bull Rescue & Advocacy. Please see below for contact info. Below are the answers to the questionnaire we send out to those needing to rehome an animal: Is the dog male or female? Male Is the dog sterilized (spayed or neutered)? Neutered About how old is the dog? He is estimated to be around 11 months old About how much does the dog weigh? About 70 pounds (and needs to lose a few) Is the dog current on vaccinations? Yes Does the dog have any health conditions or medical issues? He has Seasonal allergies and is currently on medication for it. Has the dog ever bitten a person (to the best of your knowledge)? No Has the dog ever bitten another animal (to the best of your knowledge)? No Why do you want to surrender the dog? Patriot is a private rescue. He is a fantastic boy and personally I'd love to keep him permanently but my husband's career and the potential of being stationed in countries like Germany and England doesn't allow me to do much other than rescue or foster for this breed. I am not looking to physically surrender him, he is welcome to stay here until he finds the right home (and if it doesn't work out he can always return here). I'm happy to foster him in my home as long as needed and see to all his expenses, but a courtesy listing would be appreciated. I'd also be happy to pay for the new home to take Chako's training course with him. Describe the dog's personality. Very eager to please, happy go lucky. Treat and praise motivated, loves toys and training games. He thrives on physical contact and love a good side scratch or having his ears played with. He isn't a barker, and currently still enjoys the companionship of other dogs. He does have a desire to give chase to small animals like rabbits, but with an experienced home is workable with them. I would say he has too much energy for a home with small children or elderly dogs. He is crate trained and house trained, walks well on leash. And he does know a variety of commands so far, still working on stay though. I think he would do well in tracking games, weight-pull or agility if his new home were so inclined. Is there anything else we should know? He does have seasonal fall allergies and the vet says he may also experience allergies in the Summer months. The medication is relatively inexpensive ($22) and one bottle lasts about three months, so it would not be difficult to manage yearly. He takes his medication like a champ, you can put it in his food or just toss it to him like a treat. Even if it tastes foul, he'll gobble it up. Also, as we only purchased his supplies for taking care of him, he can go to his permanent home with everything he needs. Crate, toys, ect. If the new home does not need his crate, Chako is welcome to have it. If Chako has a usual adoption fee, they are more than welcome to apply it to him and keep it. I'm not asking for any adoption fees. To adopt Patriot, contact: Danielle

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patriot, a Sacramento 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 Sacramento, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Sacramento.

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