|Size:||Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)||Sex:||Male|
This beautiful boy is a cross between an American Staffordshire Terrier and an American Pit Bull Terrier. The offical breed is an American Bully. He looks like the Staffordshire Terrier but larger. Sarge is about 1 year old and weighs 70lbs. Because he is still officially a puppy he may have a little more growing to do. He has a very sweet temperment, however he can be food aggressive with other dogs. He is not a big barker nor does he dig holes in the yard. Unfortunately, no one has worked with sarge and he will jump up on you in his excitement to see you, therefore he is not available to families with young children under 12 years of age. We are looking for someone who has experience with training large strong dogs as he was a back yard dog before being rescued and needs some basic training as well as house breaking. He does not appear to be a "marker". Sarge is truly a wonderful dog and will make a great pet for the person who is willing to work with him. He was recently neutered, vaccinated, tested for heart worms and is negative and he has been on heart worm prevention for sometime now.
Because a home visit is part of the adoption process for Sarge, he is available for adoption in the immediate DFW area only. HIs adoption fee is $250. Interested parties may e-mail Angels Rescue for a pre adoption questionnaire.
Rescue Group Info...
Angel's Rescue was founded by Betty Wiley in 2000, however her plight began years earlier when she became concerned at the number of dogs being abandoned at a local lake. She at first began taking food and water out to them each day and eventually she was able to pick some of them up, take them to the vet for the appropriate health care, then find loving homes for them. Most of our dogs are either rescued from the lake, strays or from local animal shelters.
Angel’s Rescue is a small non-profit 501(c)3 group comprised of volunteers who dedicate themselves to rescuing dogs. We are a “no–kill” rescue group, operating solely on donations. We do not receive any type of government or institutional funding.
We do not have a shelter facility. Each of us foster dogs in our homes. Adoptions can be done during the week at the foster family's convenience. We hold adoptions on Saturday or Sunday (12-5) at the Petco in Mansfield off Fm157 (South Cooper) and Hwy 287
***Adopting a New Friend:Our adoption process consists of filling out a pre-adoption questionnaire, which is then reviewed by an ARNT representative. If adopter is approved, a home visit will be scheduled at a convenient time for the potential
adopter. If the home is approved, the adoption contract will be signed and the adoption fee paid. The dog then becomes the adoptive pet of the adopter. We do not ship dogs. Our adoption fee runs between $100 or $350 depending on the type of dog. The reason for this is due to the vet work that goes into some animals. We may have a puppy that gets adopted for $100.00 but we have spent $300.00 on it. The higher fee on the more desirable dogs help to cover this expense. We don't make a profit by getting a higher adoption fee on some dogs, as some people would think. We always have very high vet bills at numerous vets in the area.
***Adoption Fee Includes:
*Age appropriate shots
*Heart Worm Tests
*Heartworm preventive up to date(if dog is heartworm positive, they will be treated)
*Any other vet care needed while in our care
*Any training given while in our care
***Our Policy. Each of our dogs is adopted as an indoor family pet, not as a outdoor watchdog, a breeding dog, or a fighting dog. Each adopted animal must be spayed/neutered, even full breed or pedigreed animals. This is not an optional procedure, and it is mandated by city ordinances. The full adoption process is required for each applicant. Adopters are expected to keep their new pet current on all vaccinations, heartworm prevention, & other vet care as needed. Home visits are to insure there is proper shelter and provisions for the pet; that there is a a secure fence around the property and to introduce the new pet to existing pets in the home, if any, in order to test their compatibility. The adopted animal is usually delivered to the new family at the time the home visit is performed.
***In some cases, we will take pets back if they are no longer able to stay in your home. Depending on the space and availability of foster home.
