Shelby's Story...
This lovely girl is Shelby. She was a stray that landed at the local shelter after she was found wandering the streets of the city. She weighs around 50 lbs. Shelby is a sweet, cuddly, happy girl. She gets along very well with the other dogs her size or larger in her foster home and does not seem to mind cats except for mild curiosity. Shelby does not do well with little dogs so should go to a home only with dogs her size or bigger. Shelby is a bundle of energy, loves to play tug o war, with people or the other dogs, and fetching a ball or sticks. But she is also just as happy to sit by you with her head in your lap. She is house and crate trained and knows basic obedience commands, and goes right into her crate when asked. She walks well on leash, but is a strong, busy girl so her new family should be active and able to give her the exercise and play time she needs. If you would like to find out more about Shelby and be considered for her adoption, please fill out our online Adoption Application. Shelby has an Adoption Donation of $275.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shelby, a Rochester American Pit Bull 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 Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Rochester, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Rochester.

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