Pumpkin's Story...
Meet Pumpkin, a solid, 6 year old Pittie ready to be the love of your life! Pumpkin has been surrendered to us when her family's living arrangements changed. She is a good dog, already potty trained, knows basic obedience, and is very polite. Her gentle demeanor and easygoing personality will make her a perfect candidate for a low key home. She is friendly, but slightly shy, perhaps overwhelmed, when surrounded by many new faces. Pumpkin has lived with kids of all ages, and we were told she is very good with them. Pumpkin refers to herself as a queen, and is looking for a home where she can be the only pet so that she can live a life of royalty. She is as loyal as one can find, and quite lovable. Pumpkin doesn't mind walking next to other dogs, or even politely sniffing a greeting, but she doesn't care to play with them or have them show too much interest in her. One of her favorite hobbies is chasing bunnies/squirrels outside, so she probably won't be a good candidate for living with cats. Pumpkin is a delight to spend time with, and can't wait to find her forever home where she can be loved on and spoiled. Her adoption fee is $170 and includes her vaccines, deworming, fecal exam, heartworm test, registered microchip, and spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pumpkin, a Joliet 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 Joliet, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Joliet.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Joliet 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 Joliet 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 Joliet paves the way for another one to be saved.
