Rex's Story...
Meet Rex!

Rex is a 4 year old Pit Bull Terrier mix and was rescued by an ADPR volunteer after they witnessed the owner threatening to shoot him. He has spent every day of the last four years on a chain and it shows in his behavior. He is so happy to see people that he doesn't know what to do with himself and he likes to jump up to give great big bear hugs. Surprisingly, he knows some basic commands. He can sit, lay down, and to a degree, stay. He's very energetic and would likely be a great jogging and/or hiking dog. He stays where he can see you and will come back when called. Tug toys are his favorite. If you're not careful you could spend the whole day playing tug o' war with him! At the end of the day he will go into his kennel and settle down. No whining or crying. He sleeps all through the night too! He is good with cats and as long as there aren't any toys, treats, or food around he's fine with other dogs. He's also fine with kids but due to his size and energy level he shouldn't be left unsupervised with small children. With a little obedience training and a lot of love, Rex will make an excellent family member.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rex, a Wasilla American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Wasilla, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Wasilla.

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