Wallace's Story...
Urgent, foster or forever home needed for these 2 special dogs! Wallace (white) and Milky Way's (grey and white) adopter is sadly losing his home, and his 2 adopted dogs are once again homeless. Wallace is a 5 year old American Bulldog mix originally rescued by Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge from a local pound. He had severe mange that had been untreated, and his whole body was covered in infection, painful sores and abscesses. It took time for Wally to heal physically, but this big goofy pup still went overlooked for 2 years before adoption.

Milky Way was rescued from the same local pound by Second Chance Pet Adoption League after having been used for breeding and dumped after her most recent litter. She was filthy and terrified, but quickly warmed up. Milky Way’s foster mom would bring her to work at RBARI during Wallace's stay to help socialize the dogs. Milky Way quickly became Wallace's favorite "girlfriend.” So, when Wallace's adopter decided to adopt a playmate for him a few months after he had settled in his new home, Milky Way was the perfect choice. They have been the best of friends and lived happily in their home for over 2 years, and now they face the possibility of not only losing their home and owner, but also each other.

We know how hard it is to find someone to open their home to one large breed dog, let alone 2, but we are hoping the right home will see this plea and help them. Wallace is still a big fun-loving playful puppy at heart. Milky Way is more mellow and well-mannered, and a bit shy at first. They would like to be your only pets in an adult household, and loved to run and play with each other. They are available separately as well as we realize it's difficult to find a place for them together. Wallace gets along with female dogs as long as they don't mind his rough play, and Milky Way had previously been fostered with multiple dogs and got along well with most. Wallace is especially heartbroken returning to the shelter and we are hopeful that we can find them a foster or forever home as soon as possible...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wallace, a Oakland 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 Oakland, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Oakland.

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