Sambuca's Story...

Sambuca is an amazing 6 year old girl, who is spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all vaccinations. She is an owner surrender who was rescued once as a pup, trained to do search and rescue, and is now in search of her forever home. "Buca" completed several search and rescue missions before being severely injured by a wild animal on the job. Her small frame still bears the scars of her attack. Despite her murky origins and wilderness trauma, this girl is ready for play. She's a big snuggle bug whose soft snore will put you to sleep if you aren't careful. "Buca" is accustomed to be able to run around, but is adjusting well to her leash. She does wonderfully with children, and comes from a home with other dogs. She is slowly getting acquainted with her foster siblings, and even winning over the "princess" minded cattle dog in her foster home. She may be slow to warm up, but once she's comfortable she's curious and cuddly. Bucca has no prior experience with cats, but is now living with two of them so as she becomes more acquainted with her surroundings and the fur-family within, we'll update you on her cat friendliness!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sambuca, 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.
