Patches's Story...
Hey my name is Patches!!!

People tell me that I am a super sweet girl and I love people!! I was found as a stray running in traffic and sure knew a angel when I saw one, I ran right up to the sweet lady who saved me and I rolled right over for belly rubs! I am looking for a foster or forever home.

I really full of puppy energy and I really love people; I do prefers to be the only dog cuddling on the couch with you, so no other dogs in the house please. I am learning to live with cats, so dog savvy cats, with supervision are ok with me.

I have already learned sit, sit & wait for my food, off / down, stay, come, and to answer to my name. I love the car, but I can't sit still; I like to see what is going out all of the windows. I do stay in the backseat while I'm in the car. One of my favorite things to do is lay in my foster mommy's bed watching CNN.

I am up to date on her age appropriate shots, microchipped, dewormed, spayed and heartworm negative.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Patches, a Gurnee 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 Gurnee, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Gurnee.

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