Dolly's Story...
Dolly is a short, squat, happy, friendly, responsive and well-trained, three-year-old, 75-pound, full-figured, fawn and white American Staffordshire Terrier looking for the perfect home. Dolly was taken to Chicago Animal Care and Control as part of a cruelty investigation. While at the facility, she participated in Safe Humane Chicago's weekly pairing of shelter dogs with juvenile felons for training and socialization. This program teaches teenage boys who have been introduced to violence the importance of compassion toward animals. After the court case program, Dolly was taken in by Chicago Canine Rescue. Dolly loves to learn, and enjoys pleasing her people. Her tail is always happily wagging. She loves going on walks, is fantastic on leash, and knows the commands sit, down, and is working on drop it. Dolly loves to play fetch, and is crate-trained, and appears to be housebroken. Dolly is healthy, spayed, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm-tested, and micro-chipped. Her adoption fee of $200 benefits the dogs of Chicago Canine Rescue. She is looking for a dog-experienced family with adults and teenagers who can continue her training and daily exercise – hopefully with a fenced yard so she can continue to play her favorite game of fetch. She would do best as the one and only canine in the household. You can view a video of Dolly, and fill out an adoption application at: http://www.chicagocaninerescue.com/dogs.html

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dolly, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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