His foster is head over heels for Nico and wanted to share this about him for anyone who is interested in meeting him: "Nico is hands down the most laid back foster I have ever had. He is an old soul and can easily sleep 20 hours a day. Nico's favorite activity is sun bathing, he will find sun anywhere in the yard no matter the time of day. Nico enjoys the outdoors and is so relaxed when he's able to lay outside. He happy laying on a floor, couch, or dog bed. He isn't picky about where he takes naps... he just makes sure he takes them. Nico would make a best friend for someone that is willing to give him time to warm up. He absolutely loves human affection! He loves to cuddle with you but is also happy retreating back to his dog bed. Nico loves walks (even though he takes them at a slow pace) and will walk so gracefully on a leash. He's happy to greet people on walks and also happy to be back home when the walk is over."

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nico, a Warrenville 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 Warrenville, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Warrenville.

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