Melton's Story...
Meet handsome Melton! This beautiful Pit Bull is about 2 years old. True to the breed, Melton is silly, friendly, energetic and loving. Melton's been receiving some training at our shelter but would greatly benefit from more. He's been learning not to jump up so much, but he would be best paired with an experienced dog owner and some training. He is a fast learner and VERY eager to please.

He is crate trained and does well with other dogs and just enjoys the company of others. He'll trade belly rubs for unconditional love any day - could you be the lucky recipient?

Melton's Story: Melton was found as a stray in Gary, IN on Melton Rd. He was nothing but skin and bones and had tested positive for heartworm. Heartworm treatment is very difficult on dogs and he needed to gain weight before he could receive the treatment (why he looks like a cute little sausage now). After having lived on the streets and going through the difficult heartworm treatment, Melton stayed as sweet as ever to the point where you'd think he'd been a family's pet his whole life.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Melton, a Gary 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 Gary, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Gary.

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