Adoption Event to Promote the Misunderstood Pit Bull

On February 12, 2011, the Maddie’s® Pet Rescue Project partners will be hosting Bully for You!, an adoption event to promote bully breed dogs.  Pit bull puppies and adults from the SPCA, City of Buffalo Animal Shelter, and Black Dog, Second Chance will be available for adoption from 11:00am – 2:00pm in the SPCA Auditorium, 205 Ensminger Rd. in Tonawanda.

The Maddie’s® Pet Rescue Project in Erie County is committed to ending the euthanasia of shelter dogs and cats with treatable medical and behavioral conditions.  The Project partners are also dedicated to improving the image of pit bulls, a label for several breeds of dogs with similar physical characteristics.  Often the victims of irresponsible pet owners, pit bulls are very social and loving animals.  Based on the American Temperament Testing Society’s tests on canine aggression and friendliness, the American Pit Bull Terrier achieved a higher positive score than Golden Retrievers and Cocker Spaniels (data obtained from www.atts.org).

In addition to taking home a devoted companion, those who adopt a bully breed dog on February 12th will receive a certificate for a free private training session from a certified professional dog trainer.  As Miranda Workman, CEO of Purrfect Paws Animal Behavior Center, says “Choosing to train your dog to be a good canine ambassador is the most important action an owner can take that will affect your dog’s life and your relationship together.”  Adoption fees, which will vary by organization, also include the cost of spay/neuter surgery and vaccinations.

If you are ready to make a commitment to an adoring dog, or would like to talk with a certified professional dog trainer about what kind of dog would do best in your home, stop by the SPCA on February 12th.  For more details, visit www.MaddiesErieCounty.org.
