Nellie's Story...
Why Choose me?
At only 38 pounds, Nellie is a precious little girl that was found wandering around on the side of the road. She has the prettiest brown brindle coat and adorable pointy ears that stick straight up towards the sky. Spending time with Nellie was an absolute joy. As it was her very first day at the pound, Nellie wanted to sniff and explore everything at first. However, after a few minutes all she wanted to do was give me kisses and place her paws on my knees for a good back rub. The cutest thing about Nellie is when she simultaneously looks up at you with those sweet eyes, pins her ears back against the side of her head, and animatedly wags her tail. She loves attention and affection, especially when you put your face close to hers so she can kiss you. Nellie would make a great companion for just about anyone– she is cute, very responsive to affection, and she is just the perfect size to sit in your lap! Come take one look at Nellie today and be prepared to fall in love!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nellie, a Athens Pit Bull Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Athens, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Athens.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Athens 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 Athens 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/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Athens paves the way for another one to be saved.
