Nicki's Story...
Nicki is a terrier mix female about 3 years old. I've become her pen pal. That means I know her well and I am promoting her so the right family will adopt her. She just had a litter of pups and was found as a stray on the street. I changed her name to Nicki because this girl is so pensive and quiet. She just loves to smell the air and sit outside and sit on your lap. There's nothing hyper at all about this young-ish girl. She doesn't even go after the treats I bring in. I gave her a bath today and she just stands there in the tub and enjoys the warm water. I split up one can of wet dog food into three paper plates. When Nicki is finished with one plate, I take it away and Nicki just stands and watches me (my fingers are touching her nose when I do this) and she just lets me take the plate away. Then I put the next plate of food in front of her and she eats that. We repeat the same process three times. Nicki just waits quietly for the next plate. I believe that Nicki would love the company of another dog and/or children. I believe she would be very gentle with a cat (but she'd have to be formerly tested for this quality to be sure.) Nicki is currently recovering from having had puppies and she's getting over having had some "bad hair days". But who wouldn't having gone through all of this in recent days? I believe that she is otherwise completely healthy.

If you'd like hear more about Nicki, feel free to call me. The shelter is quite full and she needs to be fostered or adopted quickly. You can visit Nicki at ACCT Philly. My name is Boe and you can reach me at 215-531-3167 to learn more about Nicki.

Act quickly to adopt Nicki. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nicki, a Philadelphia Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
