I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Paul's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with cats.

Paul's Story...
Please contact Michael Ryan (michael@baycitymovers.com), (415) 710-4126 for more information about this pet.

Some dogs are dog-dogs; some are people-dogs. Paul here is assuredly a
people-dog!  All Paul wants in the whole world is to be at your side.

He's a 1-2 year old pit bull that was raised from a pup by teen girl
and her family, but sadly ended up stuck living alone, outdoors in the
back yard. I had him neutered and am working with him on his basic
commands. He does know sit, and is getting to be very good on the
leash. Paul is smart, playful, and really wants to please all people,
but he is also full of youthful, bouncy, energy.  Ideally, he'd be
with someone who could give him a good bit of exercise and play a
couple of times a day because once he gets some romping in, he's a
nice, cuddly gentleman.  He has a very submissive nature, and he'll
thrive with someone that can make him feel secure by giving him clear
boundaries and some training. So ideally he should be with someone
fairly strong and confident in their dog handling skills. While he is
totally eager and ready to learn; I think he really doesn't yet
understand how big and strong he is. He's got a puppy's brain but a
grownup's physique.

He is great with kids, loves them in fact. But he seems a little too
excited by cats so should not live with one. I have introduced him to
other dogs, but not off-leash or unsupervised. He's been an only dog
his whole life and should probably be the only guy in his new home.

Paul is a great dog!  He needs a foster home, or a forever home ASAP.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Paul, a San Francisco 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 San Francisco, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in San Francisco.

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