Mackenzie's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Mackenzie's Story...
Meet Mackenzie - Mackenzie was dumped in February 2013 in Houston’s East End. She was bleeding and apparently had a litter of puppies some time during the past six weeks although the puppies were nowhere to be found. She also had an old fracture below her elbow and we are considering various options for treating it. She wore a cast for a few weeks that seems to have helped her mobility.

Mackenzie is 3-4 years old and has spayed and fully vetted. She is beautiful blue Pittie with a sweet disposition. We expect she had a pretty miserable life before we found her but we hope someone out there will take her in and show her how good life can be! She is living in boarding but would do so much better in a foster or forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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