Joey's Story...
Like a hollywood movie, our dashing hero escapes death in the nick of time. however this story is not complete because our hero needs a happy ending.

Joey escaped death this weekend from the overcrowded, high-kill, city shelter. The reason for putting him down - a runny nose. We were able to rescue our hero, but we need a foster home immediately for him.

From the looks of his adorable face, Joey, who was found a stray, probaby had a heartwrenching abusive past. The truly amazing thing is, however, that the scars from it are only physical, not mental, because you couldn't find a sweeter, more loving and appreciative companion.

Joey is housetrained and is very good in a crate if you so choose to leave him there when you are not a home.

Joey is only 40 lbs and would make a good apartment dog. Joey loves lying down at your feet to be petted. He also seems to enjoy the people's conversation buzzing around him. All in all, he's a nice, easy going dog. Please help Joey have another chance at a wondeful life, this time with a guardian that will not abandon him on the street! Take a good look at Joey's face: How could you resist not falling in love with him!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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