Leon's Story...
**Come Meet Me! I'll be at Petco in Middletown NJ on November 6th from 12pm - 3pm**

Leon is gorgeous. And goofy! At just 8 months old he is still so curious about the world around him. He already knows his basic commands (cause he's super smart!) and is now learning how to play with toys and other dogs. It seems he hasn't spent much time around dogs, but he's quickly learning play moves and becoming more confident each day. He's done well with both large and small dogs. He's super friendly with people too but can be a bit shy at first. But after a couple of minutes he's smooching faces! He's very gentle, becoming more affectionate each day, takes treats beautifully, and is quite the young gentleman. He was sprung from an inner city shelter after finding himself on the kill list. We just couldn't say no to that face! So now Leon is enjoying his life at last. He's obsessed with tennis balls (who wouldn't be?) and is excited to meet his new family! Whoever gets to adopt this sweet boy will be super lucky!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leon, a North Haledon Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in North Haledon, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in North Haledon.

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