My story

Recently we got the news that Princess has received a final extension to obtain an adopter, foster, or rescue before facing euthanasia on 4-6-2022... the fact that's her 5 MONTH SHELTER-VERSARY is bitter icing on the cake. Since we only have about a week left to spend time with Princess, we figured it was time we start treating her even more like the #Princess she is... so bust out the tutus & tiaras!!!

Princess' conundrum is a hard pill to swallow, we need to be honest that the bulk of her current problem relates to being relatively forgotten about for first 3 1/2 months at the shelter. Had she gotten the VIP (Very Important Pitty) treatment she's getting now she would have likely been adopted due to her receptive personality and Ador-A-Bull mixture of being so bubbly & easy going.

She doesn't express herself as dog reactive, but needs to be only pet in the home due to her prey drive arousal. That means she's NOT the kind of dog that will bark and lunge at the sight of another dog, but is not a fan of dogs encroaching on her personal space and needs a secure yard - or better yet no yard at all since she'd be very content to loaf around in an apartment or small home setting. She's a very sweet girl which makes this such a tough call to make, in the mornings I like to let her hang out with me while we do the daily walk-through of all the kennels and 100+ other dogs on the property & she's quite happy just to trot around right by my side the entire time.

Why adoption is a great option

Princess, a Costa Mesa 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 Costa Mesa, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Costa Mesa.

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