Ramsey's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Ramsey's Story...
Ramsey came into our rescue in March from Ansonia Animal Control.

This boy has the most AMAZING personality! He has the best smile, and everyone who meets Ramsey instantly falls head-over-heels in love with him.

We discovered that he had a heart murmur, and after an echocardiagram and evaluation, he was diagnosed with pulmonic stenosis - a congenital narrowing of the valve between the pulmonic artery and the right ventricle of the heart. Without surgery, his life would have been short and the quality of his life poor.

Well, we couldn't let that be! We raised funds and in August he had surgery at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. Today he had his follow-up echocardiagram which showed that the surgery had been a GREAT SUCCESS!

He will need follow-up visits with a cardiologist, but the prognosis is that he will now be able to live a long, healthy, happy life!!!!!

AND now he can be available for adoption!

Ramsey is a total ham. He will make you smile every day.

He is a playful guy who will do well with another dog his own size, who is tolerant of an "in your face" play style. He should not be in a home with cats. Because he is a bit of a tank, we're recommending a home with children 10 years old or older - he could easily knock over little ones with his enthusiasm.

Above all else, Ramsey is a true cuddle bug. He just LOVES to be loved, and gives it back 100 fold.

He will make some lucky family a totally terrific new family member!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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