Fern's Story...
NOTE: This is a courtesy posting for another rescuer. Please do not contact ARRF, as we do not know this pet personally. For specific information regarding Fern, please email Melanie at smmurnane@roadrunner.com.

Fern is a gray Staffordshire/Boxer mix who is about 7 years old. She weighs 43 pounds. Miss Fernie has the cutest under bite and soulful eyes which add to her quiet charm. Her coat is full and soft and she has put on some much needed weight since she has been in her foster home.

Fern is looking for a quiet home with loving parents and older children, if any. Her mellow energy and easy care would be perfect for empty nesters or a retired couple. She does get excited over mealtime, walks, car rides and the return of her foster dad from work. He usually has a treat in hand, so it is no wonder she is delighted to see him! Her inner puppy comes out and she prances around with joy; it is really cute.

She enjoys a backyard in her foster home, but it is not a deal breaker in her forever home as long as she gets a couple of nice walks a day. Fern has excellent leash and car manners, and she likes to meet new people of any size. She would no doubt love to be the only pet so she can be the star of your show. Fern rarely barks, is crate trained, house trained, and a very well-mannered indoor dog.

To meet this cute girl email Melanie: at smmurnane@roadrunner.com.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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