Tessa's Story...
The Trenton 5 has arrived. 4 puppies came to the shelter from one litter and then a single stray pup arrived later that day. We don't think the single pup is related but we have combined them into one big happy family for companionship, comfort and socialization. Puppies are a big responsibility. We take our time in placing a puppy in the proper home. It is not first come first served. We also give priority to families that can show previous ownership of a dog for its entire life span. All of the pups are living with 3 adult dogs and are respectful of their space and needs. They are also living with 3 young children and can't get enough attention and affection from them. They are appropriate with children but will scratch them by accident when jumping around with excitement.

TESSA is a wild girl. She is 6-8 weeks old. She is always the first one out of the pen and running around. She is also the first one to tucker out and lay down from being exhausted. She is a sweet girl that tries to be the boss. She is on the dominant side and would do best paired with a submissive dog or by herself. She is also the most independent and is willing to stray from the pack and explore the world around her.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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