Shepter's Story...
Note: This wonderful pet is at a high kill shelter. Please contact us at 646 724 0597 ASAP if you are interested in adopting or fostering her. Thanks.


Shepter (oh, the names we give our animals) was found way west on 184th Street in Manhattan. This handsome 1-1/2 year old American Staffordshire mix (with perhaps a dash of boxer in him, given his distinctive muzzle), has unusual coloring. His fur coloring is hard to describe: his record says "sable," which might be a good description for his brown and orange coat. Whatever it is, it becomes him. Shepter knows some commands: he sits on cue, for example. He's easy to lead on a leash. He might look a toughie at first glance, but Shepter is all taffy inside. He's a calm boy. For example, one of our volunteers got her leash all tangled around his neck. Shepter calmly sat there while a Shelter staff worker untangled that holy mess. Shepter couldn't have been more patient. Drop by and meet our Shepter. He's a model citizen.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shepter, a New York American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer for sale in New York, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in New York.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New York 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 New York 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 Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New York paves the way for another one to be saved.
