Marshal's Story...
Like big, handsome dogs? Then you must meet Marshal!
*****
Hi there, my name is Marshal! My body is larger-than-average, but so is my heart! I came to ACCT as a stray. I must have gotten lost, but a nice person brought me to the shelter. Now I have a bunch of new friends! They love me a lot, so they are trying to find a great home for me.
*****
I am part of the Pen Pal program at the shelter, and my pen pals (that's right, not one but two!) are helping me work on my basic commands and manners. My Pen Pals are teaching me so much! I know "sit", "look at me", "touch" and I am learning more new commands every week. My Pen Pals like to take me on long walks and I love the time out of the shelter with some one-on-one time with my special friends. They sometimes use a harness or a Gentle Leader so I can walk nicely with them. Besides fun walks, I love nice pets and a little massage and I turn to a big mushy boy. I love to have some quiet time with people. Do you have a nice soft bed I can sleep on to relax? I would love to be your buddy and keep you company. I also love to play with tennis balls! I have not yet mastered the game of fetch just yet but I love to chase the balls and chew on them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marshal, a Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

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