Lou's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Lou's Story...
Lou is a very special boy who deserve a forever home of his own. Lou was once living in a shelter in Dallas, Texas where his time was up and he was close to euthanization. Luckily a very wonderful person who spends her life saving perfectly adoptable dogs from an unfair death found Lou and saved him just in time.

The rescuer in Dallas flew him to a family here in Cedar City for adoption after running out of local options and as a last resort, but the family decided after 2 months that they didn't want him anymore and he was abandoned.

He does wonderful with small dogs, and does good with most dogs his own size (has no probelm with females) but will get a little defensive at times if he feels treatened by another large male. So if you do have another dog, Lou will have to be introduced before we ok his adoption! Absolutely NO CATS! He will chase them and if caught...he won't be very nice.

He loves kids and does great with them, but he doesn't realize how big he is and has knock over a toddler on accident while trying to play in his previous home, so if you are a family with smaller children, you will need to make sure and work with Lou on his boundaries and play time manners! He is very gentle though and when he is not in "play mode" he likes to give sweet kisses and snuggles! At adoption events, the children flock to him! How could they not with that handsome warming smile?

Lou is very well behaved and knows basic commands. He likes to chase the ball and loves anything that squeaks! He is leash trained and completely house trained, including using a dog door. He is neutered and up to date on his shots, and microchipped. He is about 2 years old and ready for a family to love him forever. Lou really is an amazing dog and he deserve an amazing family. He is tired of being bounced around from place to place and is so ready to find his forever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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