Cashew's Info...

Cashew's Story...
Cashew was pregnant and in a very full kill-shelter. We rescued her and she soon gave birth to 12 squirming puppies. Then, almost overnight all but 3 died. Cashew was frantic trying to get her babies to move and nurse. It was so sad!

In an effort to save the last pups, we took them and have someone bottle-feeding them 'round the clock. Cashew now misses ALL her babies and is sad at our shelter. Please help this sweet mama get happy!

Cashew is around two years old and is healthy but has a case of heartworms which we'll see her through. Heartworms aren't contagious, you and other animals will not contract heartworms from Cashew. They are curable when caught early and show no outward symptoms except in advanced cases (coughing). Heartworms are caused by mosquitoes and are all too common here in the south but are completely preventable with an inexpensive monthly pill. Cashew is taking a monthly pill (which we will pay for) until a blood test (which we'll also pay for) shows she's rid of them. This could take 6 months to over a year. We've had many happy adopters who've rescued a heartworm-positive dog. Speak to your vet if you need more feedback.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cashew, a Marietta 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 Marietta, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Marietta.

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