Greta's Story...
Name: Greta
Nickname: My foster mom calls me Puppy too....or sometimes Re-greta, and then she laughs. I don't get why. Regret-a? Huh?
Age, Sex, Weight: 11 months, female, 55 lbs
Who would play me in a movie: Melissa McCarthy
Favorite Movie: Animal House!
Sleep & Cuddle Tactics: I believe that being a love bulldozer is the way to everyone's heart. I love people, dogs and cats and I want them to KNOW it. I am learning that jumping around isn't the best way to win friends and influence people though.
Spirit Animal: Rhino!
Vice: Oh man, well if you count loving to much a vice, then lock me up! Ha ha not seriously, I can get rowdy and forget my manners cause I'm so excited, but I am learning to contain myself!
Past Time: Playing with my doggie foster brother and sister, smiling with my tounge out being a floppy goofball.
Outlook: I was sooooo scared at Chicago Animal Control and didn't think I was ever gonna leave that place.... so when I finally did I decided to make the most of it. I'm a goof!
Interaction Preferences: I love dogs who like to wrestle! I am not interested in cats. I love older kids who I can't knock over!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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