Bella Blue's Story...
Bella's foster mom wanted to share this with you:

If you’ve been thinking about training a therapy dog, Bella is an excellent candidate! After a week with Bella, her foster mom says: Bella is a very gentle, clean and friendly soul, and wants to be wherever her people are. She wants to please. She’s fully housetrained and easily corrected – verbal commands work fine. She loves to cuddle and is very affectionate, and at the same time is not pushy about it. She likes to make a standing cat run, but not with any commitment to catching it, and tries to be friends with a cat that’s lying down. She doesn’t have a strong mouth focus, and seldom takes things from a person’s hand – if she does take something, it’s done with great delicacy and hesitation. By the same token, she’s not a major chewer, but does like to have toys to play with and mouth. She’s a very intelligent and energetic dog, but not frantic or manic; she just needs something to do. She does like to fetch a ball, and knows several commands, such as sit, no, leave it, shake. She would easily learn more. She’s afraid of large dogs, or of small dogs that have attitude, and loves medium to small dogs that are also gentle. She walks well on the leash and loves good, long walks every day – she’ll walk easily at a slow pace, but really likes a brisk pace. Oddly enough, she doesn’t go potty when she’s on a walk; she always waits to get back home. She’s very quiet, seldom barks, and then only one bark at a time - a perfect dog for those who want a full night’s sleep. She accepts a bath fine, and has a nice, healthy coat. She’s gray with pretty gold eyes that have a slightly green tint to them.

NOTE: Bella would do best in a home with either no other dogs or with a mild-mannered smaller dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella Blue, a Salem 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 Salem, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Salem.

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