Hero's Story...
Hero is a delightful dog who had a stroke of very bad luck. His devoted owner was forced to move into housing which doesn’t allow animals so had to surrender Hero to the animal shelter. Hero is quite comfortable being handled and interacting with volunteers so it appears he has been well-socialized which is great to see. Out on his walks in the park he is quite easy to manage. Hero is keen to sniff and explore the surroundings but will trot along companionably if you pick up the pace. At around two years of age Hero is no longer a hyper young pup though sometimes he exhibits a burst of glee to be free of his kennel and he’ll want to play tug-of-war with the leash. Silly pooch! He is easily corrected though and will sit for a treat on command or deftly catch it in his mouth if you toss it to him. We really like this big goofy pooch and hope that Hero will soon find another home of his own.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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