Hello there! My name is Red and I am a dogue de bordeaux/pit bull mix. I'm about 6 years old and I'm a big boy with a big heart; right now I look like a starved lion but my foster mom thinks I'll be about 70 pounds by the time she fattens me up! I have no problem with that, since dinner time is my absolute favorite time, ever.

I was found as a stray in Brooklyn and had been at the shelter for about 3 weeks before my foster mom came and picked me up; she drove very far to go get me just in the nick of time and tells me every day it was a trip very well worth it! So far I have really charmed her and everyone else I meet despite my very manly looks. I have been told I have very expressive eyes, and a beautiful soul. My foster grandma kisses and smooshes my big wrinkly face and tells me she loves me and I'm sure you will do the same once you meet me. Even though I wasn't exactly housetrained when we first got home, I have mastered this art in under two weeks. My foster mom said shes pretty sure I'd never actually been inside a house before hers, yet to her delight, I have also mastered crate training, sit, AND most impressively have even beaten my foster sister's record in learning how to ring the bell when I want to go outside! I have no problem getting baths if I get stinky, I take treats very gently with my big mush mouth and get along very well with other dogs. We're allowed up on the bed and the couch and let me tell you, these places are fantastic now that I know how to get up on them! I have to admit, I prefer the lazier times in life but I have very much discovered the joys of toys thanks to my foster brother and sister! They have showed me thing like tennis balls, basketballs, squeaky toys and filled bones. Its fun to just act like a goof and carry them around and run and swing them around! We just hang out and live the good life, laying around in the sun or playing sometimes depending on how lazy of a day it is.

I really love when we go on relaxing walks, I'll walk right by your side the whole time like a gentleman; despite my size I really do walk on the leash like a dainty little yorkie! I give huge hugs and might lick your face off if you let me, I'm very thankful to be such a lucky boy and I have to tell everyone! So if you have a spot in your home and your heart for a laid back guy who just wants to love you, come see me at Petco on one of our adoption days! I promise I will make your trip well worth it too!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Red, a Raritan Dogue de Bordeaux/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dogue de Bordeaux/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Raritan, or seeking a Dogue de Bordeaux/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Raritan.

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