Meet Banjo! After a tough life on the streets and many months at the shelter he was rescued and put into foster. His foster dad says he’s such a good, happy boy. Now it’s time for Banjo to find His Forever home. He’s 5 yrs. old, neutered, up–to-date on shots and Healthy. Banjo loves people and is dog friendly. He enjoys long walks and trips to the park, but his favorite past time is never-ending belly rubs.

This beautiful Boy is currently fostering with many other 'bully" breeds in our program. His current foster caregiver understands and is experienced with the ability and nature of the breed. We still require an owner that has prior experience with large and or "bully" breeds. He is amazing around people but, proper introductions to new dogs is a must. Banjo's previous owner didn't treat him with the love and attention he needs so he is now getting it with hisfoster home. He loves to sit on your lap as if he is a lap dog. However, like most bully breeds, Banjo needs structure and boundaries. He needs a confident, firm pack leader to help him maintain his place in the pack. When we say this, we do not mean that someone needs to be rough with him or use excessive negative training methods. Rather, Banjo simply needs an owner who will continue to use his training commands, exercise him regularly, and have him follow house rules.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your living situation prior to inquiring about this dog.

We do not place dogs on a first come first serve basis, but rather to the home best suited for them. An adoption fee, application, and contract are required.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Banjo, a Van Nuys American Staffordshire Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Van Nuys, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Van Nuys.

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