Nugget's Story...
Meet Nugget! Nugget is a 1-2 year old terrier mix and this poor boy only weighs 28 lbs! Nugget was found by a nice police officer and clearly hasn't had the easiest life - he is very underweight and needs to gain at least another 15-20 lbs. However rough his life may have been, it doesn't affect Nugget's sweet personality in the least!! Nugget is a social little boy who loves to cuddle and walks great on a leash. He's been on walks here with other dogs and has been great and well behaved with all of them. He definitely lives up to his name - he's just an adorable little nugget who would really love the chance to be a much loved part of someone's family. Come meet little Nugget today!

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nugget, a Philadelphia Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
