Karma's Story...
Karma is a 6 month old American Pit Bull Terrier. We are not quite sure what "color" Karma because as you can see, she has no fur. Karma is a product of very cruel and negligent owners as they surrendered her to the local humane society and stated she has had "poison ivy" for three months! We all knew once we saw her that she has a severe case of Demodectic mange with a secondary bacterial skin infection. Karma was going to be put to sleep because she was in pain and her road to recovery will be long which is something some humane societies are not set up to take on. Luckily a few angels from the shelter sent out a plea for Karma and we could not see her be lost without some kind of help. Knowing that Demodex is a treatable, non contagious disease, BDBH stepped in to help this little girl!

Despite her pain and condition Karma is the sweetest girl we could ever ask for. She holds no grudges to people even after she was left to suffer in the condition she was in. She wants to be near you, touching you and giving you kisses to show how much she loves you. She also likes the company of other dogs. She is currently living with male Siberian Huskies, a female German Shepherd and a male Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix and loves every one of them. She follows them around about as much as she follows the humans in the house around! Karma knows sit and down and she is also crate trained. She is a wonderful little puppy and will make a wonderful addition to any household!

Karma has started her treatment and the road to recovery. She will require special medication, medicated baths and lots of love throughout this treatment. One day we will know what Karma will look like with fur and she will show what a beautiful girl she is inside and out.

We will continue to update Karma's pictures to show her improvement and if you would like to donate to Karma's care, any amount will help as the medications, baths and veterinary visits add up quickly.

For more information on Karma, please email her foster parents Kristin and Bob at Kristino4485@yahoo.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Karma, a Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Rochester/Buffalo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo 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 Rochester/Buffalo paves the way for another one to be saved.
