Mikey's Story...
We rescued Mikey when his owner decided that he was not going to become the fighting dog that he envisioned him to be. In fact, he got so mad at him that he broke his right rear leg, and allowed the leg to heal without a splint. Needless to say, in a very short period of time, Mikey went from being a young pup, to living on a chain, to almost being beaten to death by his owner who ended up dumping him at a pallet yard where our volunteer Rosalie rescued him from. Fast forward to present day. Mikey is a dog who is social with other dogs, and plays in our pack twice a day, seven days a week. He plays with lots of other pit bulls, shepherds, and even small dogs, both males and females. Even though he is very good in the pack, it's with a lot of supervision. He needs to go to a home that understands and respects what a true bully breed dog needs. He is a big boy, weighing almost 80 lbs, is very affectionate with people, walks well on a leash, and enjoys riding in the car. He has a nice balanced energy level, and could easily live in a condo or loft. When Mikey finishes his play time, he sleeps most of the day. As an only dog, he would do very well with a couple good walks a day, and lots of socialization with people and other dogs on an ongoing basis. If you have owned an American Bull or an American Pit bull Terrier before, or you have done a lot of research about the breed, Mikey might be a good choice for you. As an experienced dog owner, one would have no trouble with Mikey. He needs leadership, and structure to be a successful adoption. Once you meet Mikey, you'll see how wonderful he can be, and how magnificent he looks! Please e-mail me directly with your questions and an appointment to meet this boy who like the Michael Vick dogs, is so deserving of a forever home. Will 2009 be Mighty Mike's year?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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