Nick's Story...
Note: We urgently need a foster home for this sweet, beautiful creature. Please contact us at 646 724 0597 ASAP if you can help.


Nick was accidentally discovered in Nassau County living in a dark, dirty basement, stuck for over a year in a metal cage too small for him to stand or sit up in. He was rescued with a cat, kitten, and a rabbit, when the animals were confiscated by an organized rescue effort. The person who was harboring the animals is under investigation.


Nick was not used to light, being outside, being with other animals, toys, treats, or the touch of a loving human. For weeks after his rescue, Nick ate laying down ... which was how he spent most of his time in the metal cage. Nick has been in a foster/rescue boarding location in Suffolk County for several months getting used to being a normal dog.


Nick's foster mom has given up rescue boarding to start a full-time job, and has giving us only one week's notice to find Nick a new home. She must leave for out of town, and Nick has no place to go.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nick, a New York American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in New York, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever 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/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New York paves the way for another one to be saved.
