Vinnie's Story...
Vinnie is a very handsome, smart, affectionate, happy, sweet, and friendly, three-year-old, 60-pound, male, fawn and white American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer-mix looking for a loving guardian. Poor Vinnie was thrown out of a moving vehicle on Chicago’s California Avenue. He was emaciated and defeated. A caring and dog-loving Chicago policewoman rescued him, but he has been sitting in a kennel for way too long. He’s a great dog and has obviously been overlooked. Vinnie loves toys and ball, and loves to play fetch. He’s happy to self-entertain with toys, but he’d also be great with a family with children who can play fetch in the yard with him. He’s phenomenal in the car, and even great on road-trips... he just sits in the back and looks out the window. He’s also a great walking buddy – really good on leash. Vinnie is well trained and knows sit, down and takes treats nicely from your fingers. He is tentative around other dogs but is happy to go on walks with them, he just doesn’t want to share his home with another pet.

Vinnie is healthy, housebroken, crate-trained, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm-tested and on monthly heartworm preventative. His adoption fee of $200 benefits rescued dogs. Vinnie is being kenneled in West Chicago, Illinois. To meet and possibly temporarily foster or permanently adopt him, contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Vinnie, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Chicago.

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