Kaia's Story...
If your idea of relaxation is staring out at the ocean with a cool drink in your hand, our resident Kaia might be the one for you! Kaia means "sea" in Hawaiian, and we think this girl as the same tranquility-inducing properties! She's a one year old itty bitty pittie mix - she's only 32 pounds! She has a unique dilute brindle coat and the biggest, saddest, sweetest eyes around. Kaia came to ACL from a local animal control where she had been surrendered when the owners lost their home. Kaia is a timid lady who can be a little skittish when you first meet her, but she's all hugs and wiggles in just a few seconds. And she really does wrap her arms around you in a hug! Kaia is good with other dogs, but she does prefer little dogs who don't intimidate her. Because she's a little on the nervous side here at the shelter, she'll do best with kids 6 and up. We don't know how she feels about cats. We do know that a little sweetness is all it takes to unlock Kaia's true nature - love!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kaia, a Oak Park 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 Oak Park, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Oak Park.

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