Lefty's Story...
Lefty is one special guy in search of someone to foster or adopt him. Lefty is a year and a half old and 55lbs of loving. His front right toes are missing pads, but that won't stop him from hopping around and rolling on his back for pets and kisses. Lefty once had a family that gave him up due to allergies. He's lived with children, cats and dogs. A volunteer wrote:

."It's your lucky day, bu
ddy," I said to him, I guess because he was going to be my first dog out? He had a clean kennel, and I figured he was holding it to relieve himself, an
d he did as soon as we got outside. I wasn't sure what his limits were, due to his leg. In a matter of no time, I realized the sky is the limit for this dog! Four paws???? Forget it! 3 1/2 legs are the new four! You'd have thought he had five legs the way he gets around! When he walks it looks like his 1/2 leg is waiving at whoever is oncoming! It's the cutest thing in the world! When we went to the cuddle spot, he mushed all over me. Climbed in my lap, wanted lots of petting! I DREADED taking him back inside. I wanted to play with him all day! So I made a promise, "Once I get all of the other dogs out, I'll come back for you again." Every time I walked by his kennel, he looked at me, like, don't forget our promise! Each dog I walked, I knew I was one dog closer to spending time with Lefty. Well, some really tough things happened at the ACC today, and there were times when I wanted to cry and leave, but I kept thinking about Lefty. He was my savior. After 7 1/2 hours of walking, I finally got my reward! AND it was worth all of the sweat and tears. I can’t put into words the feeling I get when I am with Lefty. It’s pure, unadulterated joy. I know I sound crazy, but you’ll have to meet him to see what I mean. Please save Lefty!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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