Satchel is a very sweet 5 mos old pup. He adores our young children and plays very well with his canine companions!
Satchel also loves the water!
Satchel was found wandering down an Ohio Freeway with Mom protecting him, sadly they both ended up in the pound which is where we rescued him from. Satchel's Mom 'Matrie' has already found a wonderful home.
Satchel can be dog selective, which is very typical of this breed. Thankfully Satchel has a great start on life as he has been socialized continuously with other dogs, since he was 9 weeks old. Stachel would like to find a confident Owner who will be consistent with his training and in teaching him good doggie manners!
If you are interested in providing Satchel with a loving, responsible and permanent home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an Adoption Application, or visit http://www.helpingthehelplesspets.com to compleate an Application.
Satchel's Adoption Donation is $250. This helps to defray the costs of Satchel's vetting and time in Foster Care. Satchel's Adoption Donation will also help save more precious lives just like his!
Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued pet!
A Little Bit About American Pit Bull Terriers: The Pit Bull immediately strikes one as being a dog of power, passion, and undying willingness. The American Pit Bull Terrier has a strong pleasure to please. By no means are these dogs people-haters or people-eaters. Their natural aggressive tendencies are toward other dogs and animals, not people. However if they are properly socialized they will not even be aggressive with them. These are truly quality companions for quality owners only! The American Pit Bull Terrier is a good-natured, amusing, extremely loyal and affectionate family pet, which is good with children and adults. Almost always obedient, it is always eager to please its master. It is an extremely courageous and intelligent guard dog that is very full of vitality. The American Pit Bull Terrier can be willful and needs a firm hand. Excellent with children in the family, they have a high pain tolerance and will happily put up with rough child play. A minimum of training will produce a tranquil, obedient dog. It has given outstanding results as a guardian of property, but is at the same time esteemed as a companion dog. When properly trained and socialized, this is a very good dog and a great family companion. Unfortunately, some choose to promote the fighting instinct in the breed, giving it a bad name.
