Shannon's Story...
Shannon is a beautiful Pit Bull mix that was rescued from one of our municipal shelters. During her routine exam we discovered that Shannon has heartworm. We are lucky, we caught it early while it is still in Stage 1. Shannon will make a complete recovery and she is getting her final treatment now. Shannon is just 2 1/2 years old, she is charming and very sweet and gets along with all the other dogs at the shelter. Everyone that meets Shannon is impressed with how well behaved she is. Please contact 718.595.2161 or fofadopt@nyc.rr.com for more info on Shannon.
Shannon is recovering in a foster home but she still needs a family to call her own. This is what Shannon's foster family says about her.
“We love Shannon. She has quickly become our favorite foster!
We have never had a pitbull before, and I am very confused as to why. She is loyal, loving and soooo cute!!
She is great around everyone; dogs, kids, and crowds.
She has been a wonderful foster dog. She has a willingness to please, she picks up commands quickly, and she loves to be around people.
Shannon is very strong.
She needs to be harness walked and could use strengthening of her walking skills.
She currently knows sit, stay, lay down, and paw (her favorite).
We are working on roll over, drop it, and leave it.
She is gentle taking treats and has no food aggression. She loves carrots and American cheese, but will eat almost anything.
Shannon is crate trained, and housebroken, she sleeps through the night peacefully.
He has never chewed our furniture or home, but she is pretty tough on dog toys. She can take down a stuffed toy in minutes not even knowing what she did. Then brings the prices to us to put back together. It's adorable!
She does well with Kong toys and tuff toys. She LOVES squeakers!
He favorite things to do;
play ball, play tug-o-war and cuddle on the couch. Very much a lap dog.”

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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