Bruce's Story...
(ID #A30019808) Hi, my name is Bruce.

I am a two year old Bully Breed mix. I first came to the shelter as a stray. Some kind soul found me roaming the street trying to find food and shelter. My past at that time was completely unknown.

I was adopted but sadly returned because I was way too rambunctious for kids. I would do best in a home where the kids would be teenagers. I am a smart dog. If you leave my leash where I can get it, I'll grab and sit at your feet to let you know I need to go out. I do need to be the only pet in the household. I'm a bit territorial with other dogs and don't do well with cats.

At least here at the shelter I have my basic needs met, like food and water plus a roof over my head. However, I am longing to find my forever home and a family to love. I have plenty of love to give. Do you have room in your heart and your home for me?? Come and have a meet-n-greet with me.

I am a young fellow at heart. I have been checked out by a veterinarian and neutered. I received a set of preventative shots and have been wormed. I have tested negative for heartworms. I have also been microchipped.

I am being sponsored by Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue. That means they are providing you with a getting started Goodie Bag when you adopt me. The bag contains a collar, leash, ID tag, training DVD, CD with helpful articles, booklet with training information, toy, and treats. You will receive a Rebate Certificate that can be used towards payment of a training course with the trainer of your choice. Sheltered Paws will rebate back to you a dollar value up to but not to exceed $100.00.

You can contact my friend Lori by emailing for more information on how I can become part of your family.

See you soon, BRUCE

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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