Rocco's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Rocco's Story...
Rocco is a 4 to 5 year pitbull/mastiff mix. He's microchipped, vaccinated, and neutered. He is crate trained and very good on the leash. There are no other dogs in the house so he has never showcased the need to mark. He is friendly with all people and is good with kids. He is well-behaved around other dogs as well. He bonds with his people very quickly. He LOVES getting attention (talk to him and see his tail wag!), getting a good scratch, and going on long walks.

From his foster: "Rocco is a beautiful male pit bull who was found as a stray by me (his current foster mom) over a month ago. He was taken to SEEACA in order to allow for any potential owners to come forward. I also put out flyers and networked for a found dog. Unfortunately, no one came forward and because he is a pitbull, and an intact one at that, I was told he had a slim to none chance of being adopted and an extremely high chance of being euthanized. I decided to foster him in hopes to find him a good home, but I am running out of time as I start school in the fall (mid-September) and will be moving. Please give this sweetheart of a dog a loving home!"

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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