Chopper, all around pittie :)'s Story...
Chopper is a 3 year old male pit bull/american bulldog. Chopper is 60 pounds of pure love!!! He is very vocal and will bark or whine to let you know when he wants something. He is smart, but stubborn, so he will need to go to a home with someone who is going to be consistent with his training and show him exactly what they want from him, preferably with someone who has breed experience. Chopper has a dominant personality, so he would do best as an only dog or with other non-dominant type dogs. Chopper was never dog socialized while growing up, but with slow introductions he does fine with other dogs. He gets along great with my female pit and my neutered male boxer. He should not be left alone with ANY dogs until he is 100% comfortable with them, which will take some time. CHOPPER DOES NOT DO WELL WITH SMALL DOGS, PUPPIES OR CATS!!

Although Chopper wouldn’t mind snuggling on the couch for a couple hours a day, he would really thrive in an active home with an active family. He does great with kids and really LOVES human companionship, over everything else!! He would thrive in a big family where he could get lots of human interaction. He enjoys long walks or hikes, playing tug of war, and chasing the ball. He loves being outside soaking up the sunshine and exploring. For some reason, he thinks he is a hunting dog and he takes pride in chasing anything that’s small and moves fast. He will chase anything that moves if you let him, including birds, squirrels, cats, and even small dogs or puppies!!

Chopper spent the first 3 years of his life with an amazing family that truly loved him and spoiled him rotten. He grew up with their kids and slept by their bed every night. He had no idea that 1 day he would be ripped from everything he had even known and loved. You see, when Chopper's humans made the decision to move to Oregon, they had NO IDEA how hard it would be to find a place to rent with a pit bull. Having previously owned the house that they had lived in, they could have no idea how bad the stigma was against pit bulls and the people trying to rent with them. Although they gave themselves plenty of time to find a place to rent, they soon found themselves running out of time. They tried apartments and rescues in the Oregon area, but no one could help them. She got in touch with me, hoping I might be able to help. I reached out to every rescue I knew, but to no avail. The night before they were supposed to leave, Chopper's human mom called me in tears!! She was so afraid for her big bully. She knew he wouldn't last one day in the pound. She was afraid because of his size and personality, that Chopper would be red flagged because his fear would be taken as aggression and he would never make it to the adoptable list!! I agreed to take Chopper and try to help find him a new home, one that I knew would love him just as much as his first family had!! Chopper was soooo confused the day I picked him up and brought him home. Everything that he had known and loved was taken away from him. He did not know how much his mom had did to try to keep him, he did not see the tears rolling down her face. He only knew that he would never see them again. Chopper has since developed separation anxiety and needs an owner who has a lot of time to spend with him, someone who can consistently assure him that he is safe and loved. Someone who is patient and understanding and someone who can look at Chopper and realize he has been through A LOT and he just needs someone to show him everything is going to be ok heart emoticon home check is required for adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chopper, all around pittie :), a Sacramento American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Sacramento, or seeking a American Bulldog/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 American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Bulldog/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sacramento paves the way for another one to be saved.
