Jewels's Story...
JEWELS IN NOT CURRENTLY AT THE SHELTER, SHE IS RESIDING IN A FOSTER HOME. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON JEWELS, PLEASE CONTACT HER FOSTER MOM DIRECTLY AT HARRISAM15@YAHOO.COM
Hi, my name is Jewels and I am a four year old female Staffordshire Terrier mix. I am a smaller girl and I only weighs about 35lbs. I was rescued from an overburdened shelter in southern IL where I was surrendered because my owner felt their yard was not really large enough for me. I don't really understand because I am not an overly active dog, infact I love nothing more than cuddling on the couch with my people! I can't wait to have a home of my own again and I would fit well into almost any environment. I am a the perfect dog for city dwellers because I'm compact, quiet and extremely social! I love going out for walks and meeting new people and doggies. I also adore children and I have lived with them before and miss them dearly! Infact, I love everyone one I meet, adults, children, other dogs, even cats! There are two male German Shepherds, a male Bulldog and a female Jack Russell in my foster home and I am great with everyone. I also absolutely LOVE my foster sister, another Pit mix from the same pound. Cleo and I share everything, beds, toys and even our crates! I will make a perfect family pet if someone would give me a chance. Did I mention that I'm housebroken and crate trained as well? What more could you ask for? Please come visit me soon! I can't wait to have my own family again.
Jewel's adoption fee is $200. She is spayed, wormed, vaccinated, micro chipped and on HW prevention. An application, contract and home visit are required. For more info, please contact harrisam15@yahoo.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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