Gertrude's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gertrude's Story...
Gertrude came to us from Chicago Animal Control in late September. She had awful skin irritations and seemed so happy despite clearly being in pain. Naturally, we had to have her.

Once in our care, our vet advised that her skin was so bad due to untreated allergies so now, comfortable in a foster home with routine medicated baths and plenty of fish oil, she is thriving and has made a complete recovery! We've found that Gertie is SUCH a well behaved girl- dog friendly, cat friendly, and absolutely loves people. We've even discovered she is bilingual! She is slowly learning English commands (such as sit, paw, etc). Gertie's allergies can be maintained by keeping her on a fish diet (no chicken) and she will be just fine.

Gertie loves car rides so if you're looking for your next best friend that will join you on any adventure, look no further!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gertrude, a Warrenville 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 Warrenville, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Warrenville.

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