PHOEBE's Story...
Do not let her tough past 3 months on the Houston streets fool you: Phoebe is an absolute keeper! This sweet 2-year old pit-bull mix girl with the most interesting Holstein cow patterns is beautiful inside and out and is the PERFECT dog! Bashful from strangers at first, she soon warms up once she realizes you are no stranger-danger'. Phoebe will without a doubt become your favorite sidekick and your most loyal companion in the whole wide world. Her welcomes are the best picker uppers ever: she greets you with a large grateful smile, a thumping tail and plenty of wiggles. She does not have a streak of meanness in her body and is submissively to other dogs. To love and be loved is all she wants! Although she doesn't require a lot of exercise, Phoebe enjoys going on walks. She is a perfect lady on the leash and it is heartwarming to see this affectionate 41-pound bundle of love look up at you with all the gratitude in the world. If eyes are the windows to the soul, you can tell that Phoebe has the purest and meekest heart there is. Phoebe is housebroken, up-to-date on all of her vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. She is currently being treated for being low heartworm positive. Phoebe is looking for a loving forever family who will be committed to her needs and happiness and will make her an integral part of their lives. She needs to be an inside dog only and is seeking someone who will be responsible in keeping her healthy, up-to-date on monthly flea-tick and heartworm preventative, vetted and of course giving her a whole lot of TLC. Her adoption requires a home visit, an application, and an in person interaction with her. If you are interested in fostering-to-adopt Phoebe, please call (713) 927-3985 or email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PHOEBE, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

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