Rescue Me ID: 17-07-29-00367Loki (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    We found Loki abandoned in our neighborhood and couldn't let him continue to wonder. We brought him into our home while we searched for his family and updated him all all vaccinations. When we found him, he wasn't fixed and wasn't microchipped. Now, he is 100% ready for his forever home. Our vet says that he is a very healthy dog. We now have him up to date on all shots, neutered and microchipped. Loki is a handsome devil and 100% lover. He has never met a person or dog he disliked. He demands lots of affection and will snuggle you at every chance. He is muscular and energetic. He looks intimidating, but couldn't be more sweet. He requires ... (Read More)walks and a bit of running around 3x per day to work out his puppy energy. He loves our 11.5 year old dog, Kaya, but she is a fragile girl. When Loki plays, he doesn't yet know his size, so we recommend he be in a home with young dogs, if any. We crate Loki when we are gone to keep our old dog safe from rough play, but Loki is house trained and not destructive to furniture. However, he has some separation anxiety that manifests in him crying and scratching at windows when we leave. Some of our blinds have had to be replaced. We are positive this habit can be broken, and are working with him on it. He knows how to sit, stay, and high five and has a lot more learning to do. One area we are making steady progress on is walking on a leash with a gentle leader. He is an amazing, handsome, affectionate baby that will warm your heart and bring you so much joy! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-23-00108Jugger (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This is a courtesy post for Jugger (top row) and Momma Peaches (middle row) - 2 dogs in the DC area that are in desperate need of help finding a foster/adopter/rescue. Their owner is in a tough situation and can no longer keep them or his other dog Zara (pictured cuddling/playing with the Jugger or Momma Peaches). Jugger and Momma Peaches are much more critical as they need to be rehomed together. Jugger is extremely bonded to Momma Peaches so if he were to lose her it would be very difficult for him. If you can help any of these dogs, expecially Jugger and Momma, please contact IMMEDIATELY. Thank you. Jugger is a ... (Read More)big, fun loving, goofy boy who loves to cuddle. Poor Jugger has abuse history (visible pellet in hip, attacked by weed eater according to previous owner). Perhaps because of this abuse he has had severe separation anxiety, was extremely distrustful of people BUT THEN CAME MOMMA PEACHES. With the help of Momma Peaches, Jugger has successfully been moved off meds for his separation anxiety, does better with strangers and is an all over happier dog and less nervous. Momma Peaches is a little shy when first meeting people. She may be nervous at first but can quickly be won over in about 5 minutes. She LOVES LOVES LOVES to play with other dogs and will provide any dog she is with plenty of exercise. Momma Peaches is very sweet, a kisser and a cuddler as well. They are looking for a quiet little love nest but if someone could take one, it would still mean the world to them. Zara is the other pup that need help. She loves to meet new people and dogs, is extremely loving and is a great cuddler! She gets very excited when first meeting people/dogs. Zara was found at around 8 months old having given birth and then dumped in Southern Maryland. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in D.C.
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in D.C. if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.

lnteresting Pit Bull Trivia Low-Cost D.C. Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Some people believe that Pit Bulls are identical to what Bulldogs were in the past. Unfortunately, Pit Bulls are often used for illegal dog fighting. American Pit Bull Terriers are very similar, and some argue identical, to Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
