Pickles's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Pickles's Story...
My name is Pickles and I'm looking for a lap to rest my head on.
I was rescued from a puppy mill in January 2011, right before the temperatures dropped below zero and the big blizzard came. I was sure grateful to be inside instead of in that tiny outdoor run with just a wooden box for shelter!
I'm a BIG and solid girl, almost 90 lbs. I'm about 4 years old, well-mannered and a social butterfly. I love meeting people and being petted. I missed out on that at the mill and I'm making up for lost time! I'd really love to cuddle on the couch with you, or the floor, or your favorite chair... I'm cratetrained and almost completely housetrained. After 4 years in the dirt and mud, I'm a girl who can truly appreciate the luxury of a soft bed and a climate controled house!
I've been good with other large dogs that I've been carefully introduced to. I'm pretty indifferent to them and I'd rather be with people. I have chased a few small dogs (that were running in front of me) but once I realized they were DOGS and not cats or other little critters they were free to go. I really like to chase little critters and for a girl my size I can really move!
I have a really calm and easy-going temperament and I've been okay with children over 5.
Do you have space for me in your living room?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pickles, a Kansas City American Bulldog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Bulldog for sale in Kansas City, or seeking a American Bulldog dog from a breeder in Kansas City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Kansas City 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 Kansas City 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 Bulldog breeders who help with American Bulldog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Kansas City paves the way for another one to be saved.
