Duffy's Story...
Duffy is one of those dogs who you need lots of energy for (to keep up with him) and lots of patience for (to rein in some of that unbridled energy). He is so excited at the prospect of spending time with you, that you'd swear he has springs in his paws the way he jumps straight up an down when you enter the kennel to leash him up. Needless to say, Duffy hasn't had much boundary-setting, and as he revels in his adolescence, it would be helpful for him to have some training guidance so that he can learn to behave like the good pittie we know he is. One look at you with those sad-seeming eyes (although, they are merely the result of a medical condition from which he is recovering), and you're hooked! It is so rewarding to take Duffy out to work with him for a half-hour, and to actually begin to see a difference in his behavior by the end of the session. This boy is smart! Come meet this you-can't-stay-in-a-blue-mood-around-me-for-long sweetheart for yourself.


Note: Duffy is a great dog who needs out of the shelter soon. He likes to have something to do all the time, be it physical stimulation or mental and sitting in a shelter cell for hours on end is wearing on him. This dog deserves a home and we're hoping someone can step up soon and give him a chance at a real life outside a kennel.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duffy, a Berkeley American 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 for sale in Berkeley, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

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