Pit Bulls have an amazing capacity for training, exercise, and communication. Pit Bulls and Pit Bull Mixes are high energy dogs who require a life of well balanced exercise and stimulation. They enjoy completing tasks for their owners, and are loyal dogs. Since Pit Bulls have short hair their shedding needs are reduced. In terms of grooming, they are pretty average. Basic nail trimming, washing, brushing, and ear cleaning will do it. If introduced positively to water Pit Bulls will enjoy swimming, and this is a great way for them to use their energy. All dog behavior is sculpted mostly by their training. Please use the advice above and consider the effort associated with owning a Pit Bull before making on your family member.

5 Reasons to Consider Adopting Over Buying a Pit Bull for sale from a store, or Pit Bull Breeder:

  1. Adoption is More Affordable - Typically, adoption fees are much less than you’d pay for a Pit Bull dogs and puppies for sale at a pet store, or even a reputable Pit Bull breeder. Adopting is especially a great deal because usually rescued dogs and puppies have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and have been spayed or neutered. It all adds up, but when you choose pet adoption you are paying less for a dog or puppy who is just as perfect as one you’d find for sale!
  2. Near Purebreds & Healthy Mixes - Looking for a specific type of dog or puppy? It is estimated that 30% of all shelter animals are purebred, including Pit Bulls. There are also Pit Bull rescue organizations specifically devoted to rescuing and adopting out only Pit Bulls. On the other hand, you can find your own one-of-a-kind, amazing mixed-breed dog in a shelter. We love those fabulous mutts! Due to a larger gene pool to draw from, often mixed-breed dogs have fewer behavioral problems or health issues, and can even live longer than purebred dogs. In short, whatever you’re looking for you can find at your local shelter or rescue group, and right here on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
  3. Be a Hero - Selecting a Pit Bull rescue group or going to your local animal shelter means that you are saving a dog's life. In truth, you are also making room for another dog to enter the shelter; therefore, you are saving another! When you choose to adopt, you’re an instant hero.
  4. Adult Adoption = Less Stress - Adopting an adult dog has many advantages. Adult dogs in shelters often have already been in homes, and many have already be housebroken or have had obedience-trained. Also, since adult dogs’ personalities are already established, it is easy to tell if they are good with children, or familiar and comfortable with other pets. One thing is certain; adult dogs require less attention and less work than puppies do. Best of all, any rescued dog will be forever grateful you saved their life.
  5. Finding the Right Match - Often rescue group and animal shelter staff and volunteers know the personalities of animals, meaning they will know the individual Pit Bull dogs and puppies in their care. They will be able to better match you up with a dog that fits your lifestyle and activities. This is one of many advantages to finding an adult Pit Bull dog for adoption, rather than for sale.
