Sal's Info...

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

Sal's Story...
Sal is a study in contrasts. He is a big, strong, active youngster, with a sweet, gentle way about him.

Sal is a sweetie; he'd rather lean on you and get a doggie-butt-scratch than race around in the yard, but he can do that, too. He's very athletic.

Sal is strong, and still a bit of a pup, so kids should be comfortable around a big guy, and probably 9 years old or older. Sal gets along with most other dogs he's met here, but he can be a bit dominant. He will do best if he is the only dog in the household. We think that he will do well playing with other dogs for short periods of time in controlled areas. Sal probably won't enjoy being with a kitty, but it might depend on the cat.

Attention sun worshipers: if you want to be in the sun with Sal all day, you'll have to be prepared to apply sunscreen to him. Except for the striking spot on the top of his head, Sal is very white with very pink, sun-burnable skin.

Like all youngsters, big and small, Sal and you will benefit from basic obedience training. He's very attentive to people, wants a pat more than a treat, and should be an excellent candidate for training. You can start with the free lessons at the shelter each Saturday morning, and go on to regular obedience when you're done with that.

Come to the SB County Animal Services shelter and meet SAL. A K-9 PALS volunteer will wiggle him out to you for a meet and greet as soon as your application is done. Sal is ready for an active, loving home - sunscreen required!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sal, a Santa Barbara Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Santa Barbara, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Santa Barbara.

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