Calypso's Story...
When Calypso came in as a stray she had a badly broken leg. One of our doctors donated their time and amputated her rear leg. She has not let it slow her down at all! Calypso is the sweetest girl in the world. She is house broken, walks well on a leash, and is very smart.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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