Mr Bojangles's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Mr Bojangles's Story...
Mr. Bojangles, aka BoBo, is a handsome, incredibly lovable, sweet and beautifully trained red merle, six-year-old, 68-pound, male, Am Staff looking for a loving guardian.

Mr. B loves people of all ages. He has already passed his Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Test. And, he wouldn’t mind going on to grad school! He sadly was too strong for his previous human who became increasingly disabled. He was her therapy dog of sorts and when she passed out, he would help her get back up. He knows the commands sit, down, paw, other paw, has fantastic eye contact and takes treats very gently from your fingers.

Mr. Bojangles is well-behaved in the home, housebroken, crate-trained, walks beautifully on leash and is good with submissive dogs. He is incredibly well-tuned to people’s emotions and would make a fabulous therapy dog. He also has a playful side and is happy to play fetch!

Mr. Bonjangles is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, de-wormed, heartworm-tested and on monthly preventative. His adoption fee of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog. If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting him, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net or 708-224-1900. He is being kenneled in Union, Illinois. Mr. Bojangles has been kenneled for over two years and is such a wonderful dog, I have no idea why he hasn’t been adopted yet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mr Bojangles, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier 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 breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
