Facts about Stone

  • Breed: Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Stone is a Bull Terrier-mix, male, 5 years of age.

Gloriously well-muscled and handsome, Stone possesses a physique so striking he’s like a work of art! With a cheerful, loves-life countenance to match, this is one boy who is sure to bring great pride and happiness to his adoptive family. And what a lucky family that will be! Composed and regal, yet playful and affectionate, he absolutely thrives with companionship and close contact. Sociable and friendly---definitely a people-loving pooch---Stone is a devoted guy longing for the family with whom he can form deep, life-long bonds. And he wants little more than to be a much-cherished, always included canine family member.

Attentive to his handler and responsive to direction, Stone learns quickly and is eager to please when he knows what is expected of him. Like all dogs he needs responsible, caring owners who will provide him with the leadership, structure, and routine---as well as love--- he needs and craves. Make no mistake, however. Stone is no push-over, and he requires a firm, assertive coach who sets rules and boundaries right from the get-go. He is a confident canine and his leader must also be, as he is not likely to listen if he senses that he’s stronger-minded than his owner.

Joyfully active, animated, and intelligent, Stone needs a good amount of both mental stimulation ---learning new things, meeting new people, interactive toys and games, perhaps some “jobs” to do---and physical activity. Moderately vigorous exercise on a regular basis and an abundance of interactive activities with family members should meet this spirited guy’s needs. He is not one to sit home alone for long periods of time; Stone needs to be with his people and engaging in life. This joyous, fun-loving canine boy will certainly be up for any and all family adventures by day, and ready for warm cuddling sessions by evening.

Stone is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a moderately-active to active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.

Come meet Stone at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.

Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.

Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.

In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a dog or cat from the shelter: We adopt on a first come, first serve basis. You must come into the shelter and fill out an adoption application and put down a $10 non-refundable application fee to secure your spot for adoption. Currently the cost for adopting a shelter animal is $35. $10 is a non-refundable application fee, $25 is collected for the spay/neuter portion of the contract. Adopters sign a contract agreeing to have the dog/cat spayed or neutered within 30 days. We are currently offering a Voucher at the time of adoption. The voucher covers the cost of the spay/neuter surgery. There are 9 area Veterinarians that are participating in this program and the surgery must be done at one of these vets.

If you rent and want to adopt, before we start the adoption process, you must come in with a letter from your Landlord, with a copy of their picture ID, stating you may have an animal in your house. If you own or rent a mobile home or live in an Apartment complex, we must have a letter on the parks letterhead from the manager stating you can have an animal in your home.
