Elvis's Info...

Elvis's Story...
I'm Elvis, a pint-sized puppy who is looking for a home! I'm a small pit mix, somewhere between 4-5 months old, and I'm not even 20 pounds. I was found as a stray, and was suffering from mange, so the shelter found me a foster mom to take care of me and get me healthy again. As you can see from the pictures, I'm looking really good, and my sweet puppy personality is shining through! I currently live with other dogs, and love to run around and play with them. Sometimes I don't like to share my toys, but I'm learning that sharing is part of the fun. While I do like to play, I LOVE to cuddle even more, and as soon as you're ready to hang out on the couch, I'll be right there with you! As you can see from one of my pictures, I love to cuddle with my doggy friends too. The more the merrier!

I'm a really smart boy - I learned how to sit by watching other dogs, and my foster mom knows there's a lot more out there I can learn to do. We're currently working on housebreaking me, and I'm getting better every day. Once my mange is all gone (almost there!) I will be neutered and microchipped and ready for my new home. If you're interested in learning more about me, and possibly meeting me to see if I am a good match for your family, please email my foster mom at . I can't wait to be a part of a family!

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elvis, a Philadelphia Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Pit Bull Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Pit Bull Terrier puppy 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)/Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
