Rugby's Story...
Rugby is a medium sized dog whose comical looks border on adorable and defy breed identification. Rugby is about a year-and-a-half old and at 53lbs he is a very healthy size and weight. Rugby has been at the shelter since June 2009 possibly because he does not shine in his kennel even though all the handlers have great things to say about him. Rugby can be energetic and jumpy especially when he has not been able to exercise for a while. This excess energy can also cause him to become mouthy and grab at the leash. However after exercise Rugby calms quickly and has good energy level for a young dog and will relax in his crate with a tennis ball to chew.
Please call the shelter 516-944-8220 during working hours (Mon. to Fri. 9AM-4PM; Sat. 10-4PM) for more information about Rugby, 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

Rugby, 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.
