Ryan's Info...

Ryan's Story...
Ryan was born on 8/25/2011 in the pound and was the only survivor out of a litter of seven. His mom would get excited when people came in and stepped all over her puppies, resulting in their deaths. Ryan's foster mom took him in before he could suffer the same fate as his litter mates. He joined another litter of puppies who accepted him as a brother. Lucky for Ryan he was able to get all the puppy socialization he would have missed. Yet somehow, he just has not found his forever home yet. It is very important for puppies to be socialized with lots of different people and pets. Ryan has been living with big dogs, little dogs, younger puppies, and senior dogs. He has the people thing down pat too! Ryan is looking for a home where he can be continue to learn how to be a good, gentle boy. He is a smart boy and will catch on fast in his new home. Just give him direction, care, and love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ryan, a Des Plaines American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer for sale in Des Plaines, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer dog from a breeder in Des Plaines.

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