PLUTO's Story...
Five-month-old Pluto is a rambunctious little pup who needs some training. He needs a home with children 15 and up. Here's a report from volunteer GIllian, who has fostered Pluto: Pluto stayed with us for a couple weeks recovering from wounds he get from jumping around in his kennel. I expected him to be hyper given this behavior, but as soon as he was out of the kennel he was a different dog! And just a puppy! Pluto was calm and very well behaved, easy to live with, he moved right in. He was cuddly and had puppy behaviors, likes to play with toys, drag his belly on the ground. He quickly began to learn house training and walks nicely on the leash. Pluto did great in the crate and did not have accidents! He was all dog and people friendly, rarely barked. He was defensive of his food dish but otherwise had no behavioral issues while with us. If you're interested in this cute little guy please ask to see him outside of the kennel.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PLUTO, a New Haven American Pit Bull Terrier puppy 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 puppy 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.
