My name is Maddox!
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Maddox was adopted quite some time ago. To no fault of his own, Maddox had to come back to us. Things happen sometimes that are beyond our control; we're just happy that Maddox is back with us so we can ensure his safety and that he lands with another awesome family!
Maddox's foster-mom had this to say within a few days of welcoming Maddox into her home: "Maddox is a 2.5 year old beautiful brindle boy. He has transitioned to our crazy home with ease (young kids, other dogs, a cat, and an active neighborhood). He is crate trained, house trained, and mostly wants to be near people. He is quite compact (much like a baby hippo) and is only 18 inches tall, but a good 70 pounds! Maddox has some skin sensitivities, but is doing well on his grain-free diet and a weekly bath/shower. He does not require much exercise, but does enjoy his morning and evening strolls. He has been non-reactive to neighborhood dogs who greet him with a bark. He would make a great addition to any family."

Our adoption fee is $175.
*All dogs receive the following prior to adoption: Distemper/Parvo Vaccine, Rabies Vaccination, Heartworm Test & Treatment (if needed) Spay/Neuter (no dog will ever be adopted out without being altered), and Microchip. *Puppies too young for rabies or final boosters will need to be vaccinated post-adoption at the expense of the adopter.
*All adopters must be at least 21 years of age.
*We will only place dogs with indoor ONLY homes.
*A home visit and application are required prior to adoption.
*We do check home owners insurance or with your landlord to ensure pit bull type dogs are accepted in your home or apartment.
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.
