Chico's Story...
Chico is a darling boy that was roaming the streets of an industrial western Mass town and landed in a shelter without an adoption program. Unclaimed at the shelter for more than two weeks, he was saved by Underdog ResQ and is now settling into his new foster home in Boston. He currently lives with a family of four that has two youngish boys (9 & 7), a male cat and a female dog. Chico loves to romp with his foster sister Ruby and looks forward to trips to the dog park where he can wrestle with other dogs his own size. Chico weighs about 45 pounds and is about 30 inches tall. We don’t know for sure what he is mixed with but our best guess is a pit bull/boxer mix.

He is a bright dog in that he has learned his new name within a week of settling into the house and is the best command sitter the house has ever seen. Chico is working on crate and house training, and has become a better walker in the two weeks he's been in Boston. He is a very affectionate dog that is happy to prove that even at 45 pounds, you can be a lap dog. He loves to meet other people on the street and his tail wags like mad whenever anyone approaches. He likes to play with toys- especially squeaky ones and rawhides. Never a more contented dog have you seen than Chico with a rawhide.

His ideal home will have owners dedicated to continuing training and socialization, a female dog, if any, and kids. He can even live with cats that appreciate dogs.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chico, a Framingham 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 Framingham, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Framingham.

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