Violet's Info...

I am purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Violet's Story...
Sweet Violet came into the shelter very scared, and remained so for several weeks. Gradually, she warmed up to volunteers who sat patiently with her, and now her whole being lights up the moment she spots one of them heading her way. Violet is still quite timid about the outside world, and needs lots of patience and encouragement to make her way to the park for a walk. Strangers frighten her, as do loud noises and speeding cars. However, when she looks up at you with scared eyes, she is quickly calmed by your reassuring words and gentle tone. Stopping on a park bench for a break, Violet will crawl right into your lap and stay there, ensconced in the safety of your lap. Violet loves other dogs, and seems to relax quickly in their presence. We STRONGLY recommend that Violet be adopted into a home with another dog. She is also relatively good with cats: she will chase them if they run, but will correct immediately upon reprimand. This sweet and sensitive girl will need a home filled with soft voices and patience, so that she can continue to come out of her shell and emerge into a confident lovely young dog.

Act quickly to adopt Violet. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Violet, a Berkeley 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 Berkeley, or seeking a American Staffordshire 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 Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Berkeley paves the way for another one to be saved.
