Optimus's Story...
My name is Optimus and I'm looking for a forever home! Do you think you might have room in your heart for me?

Don't let my size fool you, for I'm actually a very quiet and gentle boy. I don't really bark to get attention; I just wait until you notice me. I love to go for walks, and even for a bit of jogging in the park. I really love laying in the grass, on a sunshine-y day, and getting tummy rubs from the volunteers!!! I'm pretty silly, goofy and playful. I make my volunteers laugh when they are with me...they say, I'm silly. : ) My favorite volunteer, takes me to Bad Rap classes. We are mastering the 'sit', 'look' and 'down' commands...oh and did I mention that she says my leash manners are mighty impressive!?! She says that after I learn these commands, I will learn additional commands. I can't wait! My favorite volunteer says I'm a super-fast learner and very eager to please. I know she loves me, but she can't take me home because she goes to school and she has to concentrate on her studies. You know, she visits the shelter all the time, just to see me.

BTW, did I tell you how handsome I am??? I do love everybody and everything, but because I'm a big guy and a bit clumsy, I probably wouldn't do very well with small children, for I might knock them over - oh my!!!! I don't really care about cats or small animals; actually, I don't really know what they are, if that makes any sense. I think I like dogs, but I don't know much about them either!

Come and visit me . . . my favorite volunteer just knows you will LOVE me. Here's a big pittie-hug and kiss for even considering coming to meet me: XO See, I'm really sweet . . . : )

Act quickly to adopt Optimus. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Optimus, a Berkeley 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 Berkeley, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Berkeley.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Berkeley 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 Berkeley 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 Berkeley paves the way for another one to be saved.
