Petunia ("Petey")'s Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Petunia ("Petey")'s Story...
Our girl PETUNIA has some good news! As of today (January 20, 2017), she is officially heartworm negative! That means her treatment was a success, and this girl is now ready to find her forever home.

When Petunia arrived at the shelter in September, the first thing everyone said when they saw her was, "She looks like PETEY from the Little Rascals!" So, that is how Petunia - AKA "Petey" - got her unusual name. :)

Although she is 2 years old, Petey acts very much like a playful, energetic puppy - she loves to run, play, jump, and even chew on the occasional shoe. ;) This girl is definitely enjoying life, now that she feels good!

Petey is about 2 years old, and she weighs 40 pounds. Petey needs a home without cats, and she must meet any resident dog(s). We recommend a home without small children, due to Petey's intense eating habits.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petunia ("Petey"), a Lyons American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Lyons, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Lyons.

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