Rico Suave's Story...
Rico! 4 year old 'suave' guy looking for a forever home! He's a victim of severe abuse, but maintains a positive attitude and love for humans (and dogs!)

His major hardship is having no tongue. He has adapted and can eat and drink well. He does make a little bit of a mess though :) Also, he still really wants to kiss his human friends, and to satisfy this need, he has learned to suck on their chins! So cute!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rico Suave, a San Diego American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in San Diego, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in San Diego.

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