American Staffordshire Terrier - Banks - Medium - Adult - Male
This is Banks. He was rescued from a trailer park that was about to be torn down. The person that had him could not take him to his apartment so he just left him at the trailer park. He is a very sweet dog and is good with people. Banks is not good with other dogs and has not been observed around cats. He was attacked by 7 dogs while he was on a chain at his previous owners house and they almost killed him. He is very scared of other animals and does not need to be around them or EVER tied out on a chain or run line. He will not be adopted to a home without a fenced in back yard. We don't want him to ever have to go through another experiene like he did before. Banks would make a great companion dog for someone who doesn't want any other animals. He has so much love to give and can't wait until he finds his new home. He knows basic commands and just wants to be with you. Please fill out an online adoption application if you are interested in him. http://www.lblrescue.com/Dog_Adoption_Application.html How can I go about meeting this pet? If you are interested in meeting this pet and are seriously considering adoption, an online adoption application must be filled out prior to setting up an appointment to meet. Application can be filled out at www.lblrescue.com <http://www.lblrescue.com/> and then click on the “Dog or Cat Adoption Application” Just takes a couple of minutes to fill out. Please answer all the questions completely, and include numbers where they are asked. Un-answered questions and not enough information may lead to your application process taking a lot longer to complete. This way if you are pre-approved to adopt we can do that adoption at that time as well. The meeting will be done at your house so that a home visit can be done at that time as well. If you live out of town we will be in touch with another rescue group in your town to do the home visit for us, but you would have to drive to Murray, KY for the meeting, which is usually done at a foster home or sometimes the dog park if the weather is nice.

Good quality pet food (est. cost a yr. $ 240.00) Total estimated cost that we spend on each dog every year is $800.00. That does not include the cost that we incur if the dog is sick when we get it from the shelter, if it has mange, parvo, needs a dental, etc. We are only asking for you to reimburse our rescue $100.00 for the pet that you are adopting so that we can afford to keep saving pets. So, sure you can get a “free” pet or buy one from someone, but has that pet had all of the above done to it? If not, look at what that “free” or $300.00 pet that has had nothing done is going to cost you. Also, are they going to be healthy, or are you taking a chance on getting a sick pet that is going to have to be hospitalized and cost you even more? Things to think about when adding a new member to your family…… Also keep in mind that once you adopt, even though we have had everything done that can be done to this pet, you will still need to plan on spending at least $500.00 a year on your new friend. Here is a list of some of the annual expenses every dog owner will have to spend to keep their pet healthy. Keep in mind this is just an estimate and it can be much cheaper or much more depending on what you get done and who does it. Also, once your 45 days of free pet health insurance expires you can ren
