AJ's Story...
This handsome boy is AJ. He's a one year old mix that is hoping he can finally get back into a loving home. AJ's family became homeless and had to surrender him to Friendship. The volunteers and staff absolutely love AJ. He's a very affectionate boy that enjoys being with people. AJ has an easy going personality, is quiet and good on a leash. His family said he should not be placed with other dogs but he has shown no dog aggression at the shelter. AJ has never been around cats and older kids are recommended. This sweet fellow is ready and waiting to be adopted. Please don't make him wait too long.

If you have kids and/or another dog in your family and are interested in adopting a Friendship dog please bring them with you for a meet and greet. No appointment is necessary. Stop by anytime during regular business hours.

All dogs receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed, heartworm tested and spayed or neutered. Dogs 3 months and older are micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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