Cooper (fully sponsored)'s Story...
**Cooper was the star student at his K9 nose works class!**

Cooper is a handsome boy with a big heart! He loves to play and gets along with his foster brothers and sister. His favorite activities? Playing with his flirt-pole, hiking with his back-pack, and playing tug-o-war! He is a moderate energy pup that knows the difference between indoor/outdoor behavior (How can we teach kids this?)! He was non-reactive to cats (curious, but not overly interested).

Cooper knows basic obedience commands and is happy to chill on the couch with you, or nap in his crate. He has NO obnoxious or destructive digging, chewing on things that aren't toys, and doesn't care to snoop through laundry or trash. He's not even bothered by loud noises (trains, motorcycles, machinery). He's partial to female dogs (typical!) and he's friendly with male dogs given proper introductions. He'll be happy in a home with or without canine siblings. Cooper has become one of our favorite success stories!

A note from Coop's foster-mom: "The past few nights I've been encouraging him to come sit on my lap on the couch. He's never wanted to do it before but Friday and Saturday nights he joined Flirty (Merit alum) on my lap. Last night, Flirty was in her bed and he got me all to himself. He rested his head on my lap and let out the biggest sigh I've ever heard. He was so sound asleep I had to shake him awake to put him to bed. He's such a great dog in so many ways."

Cooper is intelligent, loving, and simply wants a home with a family that loves him. And...his adoption fee (usually $175) has been FULLY sponsored by a MPBF supporter, so his adoption will cost his forever family nothing but the promise of a lifetime of love! :)

IMPORTANT: Many homeowner's insurance companies have breed blacklists or "dangerous dogs" lists which include, but are not limited to, pit bulls, American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Akitas, American Bulldogs, Chows and wolf-hybrids and WILL NOT insure you if they reside in your home or may cancel your insurance if you add a dog of these breeds to your home. If you rent, landlords may also have these same breed restrictions due to their insurance policies. Please check your homeowner's insurance policy or ask your landlord regarding breed discrimination before submitting this application to adopt a pit bull type dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cooper (fully sponsored), a Greensboro 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 Greensboro, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Greensboro.

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