Skippy's Info...

Skippy's Story...
Skippy was born on 2/22/12 and is a super cute mixed puppy. He has a beautiful brindle coat and wears a lovely white stripe down his adorable face.

Skippy is currently in a foster home with a dominant female dog, a two year old child, and a cat. He loves people and follows everyone around. Skippy is very gentle taking treats from young children and has done great with kids from ages 1-3 (picture #3 shows him laying while a 1 year old pets him). He is a very cuddly dog that likes to be right next to people. He will respond very well to training as he is constantly watching his care takers every move and is very eager to please. Skippy is not a runner and stays right with his people when out in the yard, going to the car, or just walking from room to room. Skippy is also very submissive to the older female dog in the house. He will leave her alone when she corrects him and will only play with her when she wants to. He is working on his house manners and walking skills in his foster home. It is expected that because he will learn very quickly.

Skippy is your typical energetic, playful, inquisitive, and all around happy-go-lucky pup. He is sure to bring lots of fun and excitement into your life, so please ask about him today!

****His adoption fee is $295****

The Animal Rescue Project is committed to the best possible veterinary care for the pets it rescues—and it is looking for adopters who will be similarly committed.

All dogs and puppies are given a general check-up when they enter our program. They receive medication to remove any intestinal parasites (worms), fleas, and ticks they may have. Dogs greater than six months of age are checked for heartworm. If heartworm positive, the Animal Rescue Project treats the disease. Dogs and pups receive all age-appropriate vaccinations for distemper, and dogs greater than four months of age are also vaccinated for rabies, in compliance with State of Michigan laws.

Most dogs and older puppies are spayed or neutered before adoption. In the case of puppies not old enough to be safely sterilized, a $25 deposit is required at the time of adoption and is refunded to the adopter with proof of sterilization.

The Animal Rescue Project requires every adopter to establish an active relationship with a veterinarian no later than 10 days after adoption. Adopters will receive a plan for routine veterinary care at the time of adoption and are expected to work with their vet to complete the plan

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skippy, a Kalamazoo American Pit Bull Terrier puppy 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 Kalamazoo, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier puppy from a breeder in Kalamazoo.

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