Bess's Story...
Bess is a 2 year old female Pit Bull Terrier. She was found as a stray outside of the city limits of Austin. We've had Bess at the Shelter since early May and she has been an awesome dog! Bess enjoys people and has shown no food possessiveness or cage aggression at all the entire time we've had her. She is a real lover with people and snuggles right up to you. She is happy to see the volunteers when they arrive and she seems to like everyone. Bess will be spayed soon and is current with all vaccinations. She weighs about 50 pounds. In our Shelter, Bess resides in a 5' x 10' kennel pen so it makes it hard for us to know if she is housetrained or not. She does try to keep her pen clean, but it's tough when she only gets let out twice per day. Her prospective home should plan on doing some housetraining work just to be sure. Bess will not be adopted as an outdoor dog, nor as a guard dog. Her adoption fee is $95. We utilize a short adoption application form to assess compatibility between dogs and their prospective homes. This form is a simple one-sided Microsoft Word document and it can be e-mailed to you upon request. If you would like to receive the form via e-mail, or if you have any other questions, please send us an e-mail message.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bess, a Austin American Staffordshire Terrier/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/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Austin, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Austin.

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