Dexter's Info...

Dexter's Story...
Why Choose me?
Dexter is a friendly boy that knows how to sit and will offer his paw to shake. He also likes to jump up gently to give you a hug. Dexter is good about following directions. When he jumped on the picnic table to investigate my treat bag, I told him “down” and he immediately hopped off the table. He waits patiently for you to put a leash on him, but be prepared for a little pulling when you walk him. Still, I like Dexter. He’s good-natured and well behaved. Come meet Dexter today. I bet he’ll greet you with a hug and a pawshake!

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dexter, a Athens 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 Athens, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Athens.

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