Roxie's Story...
Meet Roxie! She came to us as a stray in mid-January and she is ready to become someone's forever dog. Roxie is consistently overlooked as she tends to hide in the back of her kennel and she takes a few interactions to start to become comfortable, but she is such a great dog! She seems to be about 2-3 years old. Roxie is a very scared and timid girl. You can see that she tries to come out of her shell and get close to you, but she is still unsure of her surroundings. Roxie has shown the staff nothing but love even through being so timid. She wants to be around you and makes it clear she does not want you to leave her. She will look to you to make sure you are close to her during walks. We are not sure of her background but she seems to prefer to be the only animal in her forever home. However, she may do okay with cats! She corrects well around them and doesn't show too much interest. Since Roxie does not have much confidence, a home that is typically quiet would suit her best most likely. We have seen glimpses of who Roxie is and we can tell you that she is wonderful! She just may take a little longer to come around, but she is worth the wait! She walks beautifully on a leash and knows how to sit! Roxie loves to work for hot dogs and will do anything for whipped cream - she's very treat motivated! Roxie clearly wants to be loved and also wants to love someone equally. Please consider opening your home to sweet Roxie. She could be your forever dog...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxie, a Michigan City American Pit Bull Terrier/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/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Michigan City, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Michigan City.

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