Bessie's Story...
This Big and Beautiful girl is Bessie. She is the most loving dog you could meet. She is estimated to be 7 years old. She is people, dog and cat friendly. She came from Cleveland Animal Control at a whopping 95 lbs of love! We did a thyroid test to be sure she did not have a medical issue causing her weight gain and low and behold she will just need some good old exercise and more green beans instead of pizza crust! HA! Her bloodwork is good so this girl is now on a diet. We want her to reach a healthy weight of 75 lbs.
She is in foster care doing wonderful. Stay tuned for more photos. Adopters must be homeowners due to her breed. Adoption fee 150.00 ****Update 10/31 - Bessie was on diet food and going to Camp Bow Wow daily in doggie daycare so she has lost 12 lbs.....WOW. This dog is a gem!! Update 2/6: Bessie loves her foster home b/c it is quiet but she does have a yard to run around in if she chooses. She hates being crated and will just snooze all day on the couch. She is now 80 lbs now, healthy and loving life. She would prefer to snuggle in bed with you at night but her foster mom makes her sleep on a dog bed. Well, a girl can try to get what she wants, can't she! HA!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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