King's Story...
King is aptly named as he is very powerful and always wants to take a leadership role. He is about a year-and-a-half old and weighs 66lbs but he is impressively strong on the leash and when jumping. He enjoys being in the company of and working with people and can be playful and fun; he enjoys toys and jogging with a companion. When he is focused King can follow obedience commands and he is food motivated which can be a help in training. It is important to King that he respects his handler and to know that they respect him. Ideally King needs an owner who has experience with physically strong, alpha dogs and who are themselves active and will include King in their daily activities and exercise. King will need daily exercise outside of the home, as do the majority of dogs, but a fenced yard will allow additional fun and games while keeping King safe. It is suggested King not be placed with small children as his high energy and physical strength may cause them to be knocked down and hurt.
Please call the shelter 516-944-8220 during working hours (Mon. to Fri. 9AM-4PM; Sat. 10-4PM) for more information about King, the adoption process at the shelter, and to confirm availability. Please go to www.theshelterconnection.com for more information about and directions to the shelter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

King, a Port Washington 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 Port Washington, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Port Washington.

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