Pearl's Info...

Pearl's Story...
Pearl is around 6 years old and is a "pocket pittie" weighing only about 50 lbs. She wandered up to a business in the 5th Ward in February and one of the people there thought enough of her to get her help. She was bred near to death and she had a rough recovery from her spay (seeping through sutures, had to be given vitamin k and belly wrap). She also had some eye and skin infection initially, but is doing just fine now.

Pearl is currently living with a 13 lb terrier mix who is the alpha (go figure). She's dark brindle with cropped ears. She has completed treatment for heartworms and is ready for placement. Pearl is healthy and strong! She comes with harness and leash, food and very large nyla-bone too! Pearl's foster mom says she is the sweetest girl, very tender and loving and just overall happy girl.

If you, or someone you know, are interested in adopting Pearl, please fill out the adoption application on our website (http://forgottendogs.org/adoption_application.html) and make you you specify PEARL. Thanks!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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