Slim Jim's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Slim Jim's Story...
If Slim Jim were a person, he'd be that smart and responsible college kid that is earning money for medical school.

Slim Jim is social .. he gathers fans wherever he goes. Dog friendly but would do best with a dog of his size with a lower energy. He's kid friendly but he isn't a fan of cats. Slim Jim enjoys bones and squeaky toys.

Slim Jim is smart .... this 4 year old seems to be past his puppy shenanigans. He loves puzzles and learning things. He is treat motivated and eager to please. He likes to keep busy but he's also good about settling down and chilling out, we consider him a well balanced energy level. His foster mom called him 'cerebral' and thinks he'd be amazing at agility. He is potty-trained but he is still working on not going potty in his crate. He has learned sit, down, shake, leave it, stay, and high five! He's working on learning counter manners .. ahem.. like staying off the counters. He also comes when called. Good boy!

Slim Jim keeps fit ... he is great on the leash and has the stamina to take on an hour long walk if you're so inclined but he's cool with a 10 minute jaunt. He loves to explore his surroundings, even if he's explored it before. He really enjoys his walks so it would be good to have an active owner to indulge him.

Slim Jim has his quirks.... He isn't a big fan of spending time in the crate with the door closed but he likes to chew on his bones in there. He prefers to be gated in a room instead.. he's the couch type (he'll lay on you!) and he needs to spread out .. but he's pretty well-behaved. He isn't a fan of thunderstorms and vacuum cleaners. hey, nobody is perfect and vacuums are scary.

Slim Jim checks off all the pittie boxes .... Snores? yes. Snorts? yes. Wigglebutt? yes. Zoomie prone? yes. Snugglebum? yes. Lapdog? yes. Nice pillow if you need one? yes.

More info to come as he settles in at his foster home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Slim Jim, a Wheaton American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Wheaton, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Wheaton.

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