Buddy's Story...

Hi! I am Buddy, the pit bull with the heart of gold. I am about 6-8 months old, neutered, and ready to be part of a loving family. I was abandoned, but am remarkably well-socialized and love to play with other dogs at the dog park (and I know when to back down when they don’t want to play anymore). I really like cats, too…but they don’t always like to play with me. I can sit and am learning “down”, and sleep quite peacefully in a crate. Especially after I exercise…and I need a lot of exercise, because I have a lot of energy! I am a puppy, after all.

My foster family thinks that I probably didn’t live with other dogs because I am still learning the rules around here (the older dogs are showing me the ropes). I like kids, but would do best in a house with older children who would both play with and discipline me. I also need a lot of stimulation because I am very, very smart. I love puzzle toys and playing tug of war. I need to know my boundaries, so if you don’t want me to cuddle next to you on the couch, you need to let me know right away…otherwise you’ll find me snuggling with you in bed! I don’t like to be left alone, so an owner with an active lifestyle and a willingness to let me tag along would be my dream come true.

I’m ready to be someone’s forever friend, so let’s meet for a play date!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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