Hershel's Story...
Big head. Big heart. Big baby. Yes, this 75lb. (we think most of that weight is in his noggin) low-rider boy, charmed his way into the OMD family when we met him in a high kill shelter. He spent our entire visit play bowing at us through the bars of his cage making it impossible not to love him and impossible not to rescue him. Despite ending up at Animal Control twice due to his previous owner's negligence, Herschel is nothing less than ecstatic about life. At a little under 2 years, this squaty Pitbull mix is a young zoomie extraordinaire who loves to play so he would be thrilled to share his home with another big dog (a bully breed sibling would be perfect) who wants to run and wrestle. Little dogs are great too, as his best friend in foster is a Maltese mix, but sometimes Herschel is unaware of his size so he will need a savvy, sturdy small dog (same goes for kiddos) who can handle his zest for life. H is great on leash, absolutely loves his walks and is an active guy so we are looking for a well matched household who is committed to giving him some solid play time and will continue to work with him on being an ambassador for the breed. He has the whole social-love-bug-kissing-lean-in-for hugs thing down, now he just needs his true forever family. This young man is perfectly crate trained, housebroken, neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and microchipped. Looking for a lap dog wrapped in a Pitbull body, you found him.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hershel, a Bristol 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 Bristol, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Bristol.

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