Bessie's Story...
Bessie is a sweet girl who has come to the shelter to recover from what looks to have been a difficult life. She is quite undernourished, has some scars around her ears, has lost a bit of hair on her back, and has extremely irritated skin from what was probably a long-untreated flea infestation. But Bessie has had a bath and has eaten lots of good food since she's been here, and is looking healthier and more animated with each day. At first, Bessie was quite tentative with people, seemingly unsure whether she could trust them or not, but she has gradually warmed up, and will now let us stroke her and give her fragile body some hugs. In return, Bessie gives sweet little kisses-- not so many as to be effusive, but just enough to let us know that she is letting us into her heart, bit by bit.

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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