Chevy's Story...
Hi guys! My name is Chevy! I am a super amazing dog - a volunteer favorite! I am 4-5 years old and I weigh 65 lbs. I have a mellow, laid back personality. I am friendly with every fur friend I meet. I love cats and other dogs - big, little, male or female - it doesn't matter. I am smart and well behaved, too. I know sit, shake, down, stay and come. When you pull out the doggy treats, I will automatically sit down and stick a paw in the air anticipating the "sit, shake" commands. I'm like "way ahead of you human, bring on the cheese." I walk well on a leash, which is a joy for both of us. I am a submissive guy and was even scared of a chihuahua that kept barking at me while on a walk, so I avoided him. I like to play with dog toys and to chase the tennis ball. I am housetrained, too! I am a good boy when left free range in the house while you're gone. How many dogs can say that?! I am a very loving, loyal lapdog to my trusted humans. Once I warm up to you, I love to get belly rubs, ear scratches and pets - I will just melt into you for affection. I love companionship and doing anything and everything my humans are doing. I love my family and am a loyal dog, which makes me protective of my humans. Because of this, I am scared of new people and strangers. I don't want anyone to hurt me or my family, and just need someone to show me how to be a more confident dog. To help me overcome my fears, a professional trainer from the rescue will work with me and my new family once I'm adopted! I have been waiting patiently since July for a family to love and love me in return. Although I will require training, I am worth the effort! My trainers say that once I build my confidence I will be a "jackpot", but that's hard to do in a kennel. I deserve a good home, and am shutting down in my cage. I am scared of this place, and really want to go home with you. Please give me a warm bed to sleep on instead of this cold, hard floor. You will be so glad you did! If a shy sweetheart like me is the right dog for you, please give me a chance and apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Examples:

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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