Ollie's Story...
Hello there! My name is Ollie. I am a 47lb, 2year old American Pit Bull Terrier Mix and I am full of personality! If you’ve ever met a Pittie, you know they are clowns and I hear my foster parents calling me a silly boy all the time. I love toys and will entertain myself by throwing balls and chasing unstuffed squirrel toys. I can also “talk”. I’m not sure what I’m saying but it sure is entertaining!

I started out life rough living on the streets with my girlfriend Layla. I took care of both of us and made sure we had what we needed until someone helped us. She has found her forever home but I’m still looking. I loved Layla and still love to play with friendly dogs. My foster brothers and sisters are balanced dogs and those are the kind I need to be with. I would also enjoy taking all the attention as an only dog because I LOVE my people. After I play for a little bit, I am happy to curl up at your feet, lap or on the couch.

I would love a fenced yard but if you will exercise me with plenty of walks or runs, that may work as well. Because I lived on the streets for most of my life and hand to fend for myself & Layla, there are times when I get scared. I hear my foster parents saying they think I was abused and hit before I got rescued because I can be hand shy sometimes. I need someone to live with who can understand that and not put me in situations where I am fearful. If a person approaches me being fearful, that makes me nervous and scared. But, if you think I’m great and want to be my friend, I will love you in return. I love my foster family and their dog-loving friends. Oh, please don’t take offense, but I would prefer a home with no children. Just one other thing, cats get me uber excited so I probably shouldn’t be around them. : ) I would love for you to see me, read the paragraph at the bottom of your screen for more information. (See, I am smart too).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ollie, a Plainfield 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 for sale in Plainfield, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Plainfield.

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