Marcus's Story...
Marcus is a loyal, loving Boy who is just CRAZY about his people! Marcus loves nothing more than snuggling with his favorite person and giving kisses on their chin. He has lots of personality, is crate-trained, housebroken, and knows “Sit” & “Wait” for a signal to eat at mealtimes. In fact, Marcus LOVES his crate, going into on his own each day - his Foster Dad just leaves the door open for him. Marcus loves his Nylabones and elk antlers, but he doesn't play with toys a whole lot - he just mainly likes to “store” them in his crate.

Marcus is a strong, willful Boy who needs a savvy, firm, yet compassionate leader for a guardian. Marcus comes from an unknown background, but it appears he may have been attacked as a younger pup. Therefore, Marcus is highly reactive to other dogs who are forward with him, or get in his face aggressively. Yet, with submissive dogs, he can peacefully coexist, but still requires supervision with them. Therefore, Marcus would do best as an only dog - however, with the right mix of guardian and other dog(s), Marcus could be in a multi-dog home. It just depends on the environment, the other dogs and the people. Marcus LOVES to please his people, so he responds very well to consistent leadership and training.

Marcus is a GREAT dog who just needs some patience, some training, and lots of love and affection. Are you the right match for Marcus? Contact us & arrange a meet & greet TODAY to find out!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marcus, a Jasper 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 Jasper, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Jasper.

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