TOOTSIE's Story...
Three-year-old Tootsie is a hipity hopity girl that loves to be outside. She enjoys lots of attention and needs a home with children 15 and up. Here's a report from volunteer Gillian: Tootsie stayed with us for a week on respite from the shelter. She was a well behaved girl and very friendly! She enjoyed meeting new people and was always wagging her tail and looking for more petting. She did wonderfully in the crate, and on a run while I did yard work, she very rarely barked and did not bark from the crate or run. Tootsie was overwhelmed with happiness when loose in the house, we suspect she spent a lot of time crated. She was a genuine and happy dog. She did not meet any new dogs with us. We hope she finds a loving home soon! NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TOOTSIE, a New Haven American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in New Haven, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in New Haven.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New Haven 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 New Haven 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 Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New Haven paves the way for another one to be saved.
