Idgie's Story...
Introducing Idgie! This sweet 60 pounder is a big ball of love. She was on crate rest for her heartworm treatment but as of mid October, sh has finally gotten to be a dog again! Idgie is a Staffordshire Terrier/Bulldog mix and is a little over 2 years old. She’s fully crate trained and loves other dogs.

Energy-wise, she seems to be a pretty mellow dog. After all, crate rest isn’t easy, and she was a champ! At about 7PM, this odd burst of energy explodes out of Idgie and she gets super playful! ...for about 20 minutes… then she turns into a potato again. With a couple of walks and some playtime with other pups, Idgie's exercise schedule is not complicated. She currently lives with several other dogs of all sizes and absolutely loves their attention. Though her energy spurts are short and sweet, she can play, play, play with pups and no hesitation!

Though she is not fully housebroken, she’s nearly got the hang of it! Idgie hasn’t been around cats much, but the ones running around outside get a little stare-down from her. Her attention is easily redirected though, and she focuses on more entertaining things to do. Children are her best friends and she’ll take all the attention they can give. She has been around kids as young as toddlers up through high school and has enjoyed every minute of it! Structured introductions to other dogs are required so she does best with individual play dates rather than dog park trips. Her confident, stalky body will trot right up to you to say hello! Foster Mom is currently working on her manners and is starting with a clean slate, but she’s confident she’ll get there :)

Idgie is a sweet and affectionate girl who can be very cuddly but does fine alone. When she was on crate rest, she was put in a separate bedroom when Foster Mom had to leave and she wouldn't whine at all when left alone. When it’s cuddle time, you can lay right on top of her and she fully supports it. She’s practically mastered being the perfect pillow for her other 4-legged buddies. This pup is not a morning dog… when Foster Mom’s alarm goes off, the other dogs run and jump and get so excited to start the day! Idgie, however, wants no part in it and definitely prefers to sleep in.

Loving, lazy, happy & content – that’s Idgie for you! With a little sharpening of her training skills, she’ll be the perfect pup in no time! She absolutely loves her crate, her humans, and her doggy friends. If you're looking for someone who will snooze through the alarm with you each morning, look no further!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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