Gator's Story...
Gator was picked up on Jackson Ave on 9/29/16. He is very friendly with people and a handsome young man. He is not good with other dogs and an approved home is a must for him. He weighs 58 pounds and is microchipped. He did test positive for heartworms so he is on a slow kill heartworm treatment. He will need to go to a well supervised home. His adoption fee is $75.

Adopters/rescues will be notified what order they are in in regards to each dog. They are available at 8am on the day they are available. Non vetted dogs will have an appointment scheduled and will be available for pickup for adoption the day after their surgery.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gator, a Lewisburg 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 Lewisburg, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Lewisburg.

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