Maggie's Story...
Meet Maggie! Maggie is a loveable 56 lb 2 year old pit mix. She is good with other dogs and older children. A volunteer wrote: Maggie is stunning in every way: the strong lines of her face, the perfect shape of her body, her soft, well-groomed coat. Initially excited when on leash, she pulls slightly in an effort to actually get somewhere, but Maggie soon calms down and looks to her human companion for instruction. When left to her own devices, off leash in the backyard, she's a bit less confidant, prancing close behind, occasionally looking up shyly as she asks permission to go off on her own. Maggie is quite refined and polite. Not a lot of tongue wagging or barking, not a lot of over the top energy. She is low key in her displays of affection. Dare I say, civilized? She can hold your gaze for minutes at a time, sit patiently by your side without getting restless or bored, share your lunch without being greedy. Perhaps she was 2 legged in a former life. Like the best houseguest, Maggie will let you know how much she appreciates your attention. Her ears pull back, her eyes melt softly, her body quakes with enthusiasm (albeit subtly), as she soaks up everything you have to offer and cuddles close. If you prefer dogs to humans, and have pretty much given up on the latter, Maggie is the perfect match for you. She will remind you of the best friend you had years ago infused with the best attributes of the species we TRULY love. Maggie is, in fact, a dog but, as we sat together the other day, I realized I wouldn't have been surprised if she opened her mouth to speak. I'm sure she'd use big words and her syntax would be impeccable! Likely housetrained, Maggie is waiting for someone to love. How truly loved and lucky that person will be!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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